People, you are missing the point! <BR> <BR> The response to body shaming or societal pressure isn't to combat... Sun, 9 Jun 2013 14:50:15 EST A Habit or an Obsession? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5332003 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/4/9/l498171597.jpg"> <BR> Since embarking on this fitness/nutrition/health routine I have lost around 12 pounds off of my 4'11 body, bringing my current weight to 99. I have toned up and gained energy and muscles in places I didn't know I had. I am fitting back into clothes I had previously considered donating. <BR> <BR> And I don't feel great. <BR> <BR> Thanks to a mildly obsessive nature, I have a difficult time taking a day off of exercise...

Yesterday was not only an "off" day, it was also FAMILY DAY. This involves my uncle and cousins coming over and us all: <BR> <BR> Playing Magic the Gathering (the card game) while eating Pizza Hut for a nutritional breakfast <BR> <BR> Playing more butt compacting activities (to clarify: sitting on your ass) <BR> <BR> And more.. <BR> <BR> And more.... <BR> <BR> And more still.... <BR... Sun, 10 Mar 2013 21:36:55 EST 11th Day of the 30 Day Shred ^_^ http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5279360 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/6/4/l643858118.jpg"> <BR> Ok, so I'm just over the 33.33333333333 percent hump of Jillian Micheal's evil and malicious act of revenge on the under-exercised majority (ie her 30 day shred video, which combines strength and cardio). Today marked my first day on level 2; that's right folks, I'm 11 eleven days in. <BR> <BR> Do I love it? Am I doing cartwheels and blessing the heavens that my bod resembles something hard enough to withstand the apoc... Fri, 8 Mar 2013 20:30:08 EST
