New Workout Schedule

Man o man ot has been a while since I've updated you guys on anything here on my blog. If you follow my indtsgram, you're pretty much updated on my current progress. For those of you that don't, here's a breif look at what my days consist of thus far.
Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays are the same.  Breakfast, Gym at 9 am (still doing about 45 minutes of cardio-more running- and about 20 to 30 mins of weights.), post workout snack, lunch, snack, dinner. Lots of water in between.
On Wednesdays and Thursdays I watch my niece so I can't hit the gym during the day cause the daycare center doesn't allow me to take her with me. So I wake up extra early (3:50 am) and go get my workout in for the day early. Soon as I get home, the hubbs takes off for work, I hop in the shower, get back in bed cause its still early as fuck and wake up again around 9 to get my day started.
Im still battling against a plateau that has been here since the holidays. No lie, I have been stuck in the 180s since friggin Christmas. For a while I surpassed the 180s and got into the high 170s but then we went to a quinceanera in Mexico and shit hit the fan. We were down there for 4 days and that was enough to get me back into the 180s.
Also, I recently (about 10 days ago) I started taking a meal replacement shake usually for dinner (occasionally for breakfast) from Herbalife. I gotta say, the shakes are good and they do satisfy your hunger. I've only tried the Cookies and Cream and the Dutch Chocolate flavors and they are both really good. I hope they help het me back to the 170s.
When I initially started my journey I had a goal weight in mind...180. Now that I'm at the weight, I don't want to stay here. I know I can go so much farther and accomplish more milestones than the ones I've already accomplished. I'm almost at my 50 lb loss and I couldn't be happier about where I am and what I've achieved but I can't stop now. I know Im capable of so much more. This journey has taught me so much about mysrlf, about life, about the ability to transform myself into anything I want. I just have to set myself up for success, believe in myself, be aggressive and shoot down my goals. Little by little I know I can. If I've come this far in 10.5 months, I can only imagine how much more I can accomplish this time next year. Life has been good to me and I'm ready to show the world that chubby girl is no longer, and in her place is a strong, confident woman that can do anything she sets her mind to. Weightloss is not only physical. It's a mind game. If you think you can't, you can't. But if you get up every day telling yourself you can do it, and give it all you have, you will. It's that simple. Train your brain before you start training your body.
