Let’s go through a little journey of how I’ve progressed over this time. <BR> <BR> My first WOD was: <BR> <BR> Max rounds & reps in 8 mins of: <BR> <BR> 4 handstand pushups <BR> 2 pood kettlebell swings, 8 reps <BR> 10 GHD situps <BR> I completed: <BR> 5 rounds of pike pushups on a 20” box, 25# KB swings, and regular sit ups. <BR> <BR> I fell in love immediately and signed up that da... Sun, 15 May 2011 15:05:28 EST Monday WOD http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3676299 Hey all, had a good workout with my trainer yesterday. <BR> <BR> Circuit set (each set goes down one number, 10, 9, 8, 7, etc. I got down to 4 in the time we had for my session, which is half an hour, but was actually less) <BR> <em>23</em> <BR> Chest Presses with bar (i'm not sure how heavy it was) <BR> Rows with 40 lb barbell <BR> Push ups <BR> Squat Presses (these were killer) <BR> <BR> Needless to say I couldn't lift my arms yesterday whatsoever, especially when I was washing my hair ... Tue, 28 Sep 2010 09:25:55 EST Paleo Diet http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3674623 I think I'm going to take action from my brother's workout and maybe adopt his Paleo Diet and Crossfit work outs because he looks absolutely amazing. He doesn't always follow it to the T, but pretty much it's eating anything that cavemen would eat, like meats, fruits, and certain veggies (usually not legumes, though you can adapt the diet to your preferences.) It's still about 25-30% carb, but definitely no corn, wheat, breads, pastas). Anything that can be found in nature and generally that ... Mon, 27 Sep 2010 16:22:03 EST Cleaning up the debris.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3649552 Oh mental spiral going downward, how did you catch on to me so quickly and for so long. Things have been downhill for a few months, breaking up with my boyfriend of over 4 years and the following 2 months before he moved out of the apt, both losing and gaining myself since may, living up the single, fun, flitty life with my girlfriends who are almost all single ( except for one, but we're working on her), and trying to numb all the pain. It's been an interesting ride and I think I hit the br... Sat, 18 Sep 2010 12:47:15 EST Ugh. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3406839 I'm going through an existential crisis. I don't know who I am. I'm living with a stranger. How have we spent the last four years together side by side and still be completely uncomfortable and alien to each other? <BR> <BR> Who am I anymore? Wed, 7 Jul 2010 09:03:56 EST Saturday... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3257011 Time to start over.. My countdown was thrown into the air and shot and now I'm restarting everything. I'm reworking myself and the way I think about myself, the way I think about my boyfriend and react to him.. and realizing that we're completely different because that's just how men and women are. I'm starting over my exercise routine and getting my head back into a better place again. I haven't really been into it the last two months and I know I haven't been losing any weight, but I need t... Sat, 22 May 2010 14:09:21 EST Depression... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3243661 Can you tell I'm depressed? A piece of chocolate cake and a red velvet cupcake later and I feel like I'm gonna bawl at work. Thankfully I'm working late and everyone's gone for the day, but still. <BR> My relationship's falling apart and I don't know if I'm willing to pick up the pieces yet again. Everything's my fault, I'm boring, I don't take the initiative to find things to do (even though I get shut down whenever I make suggestions), he feels like he's talking to a retarded third grader a... Tue, 18 May 2010 17:38:22 EST Inspiring others feels awesome http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3197792 So I know I used to blog like three times a day, but it's just been so busy at work that I haven't gotten a chance to barely get on at all aside from logging my food and exercise, and that's normally on my iPhone. Things are going well, stayed stable all of April, which was disappointing, but I didn't work out all that much so it was kind of expected. I think that's actually better because at least my body is getting used to my weight and not going up and not going down extremely quickly. Mod... Wed, 5 May 2010 13:34:32 EST I think I've made a decision.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3168821 So, I've been through so much over the past few months and I've worked so hard, and not saying that all of you didn't help me, but I really did it all on my own and I'm so proud of that. I've been thinking about how I'm a co-leader of the Recovering Eating Disorders group and I really am proud of that. When I've told others, I really feel myself beaming about it and I'm hoping that I'm making a difference in other people's lives. I feel like I can work off of my experiences and give what advi... Tue, 27 Apr 2010 21:15:27 EST Just worked out, whew! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3112561 Good day overall on Monday, definitely time to get some sleep now. Video speaks for itself.. maybe I can stop looking away when I'm talking eventually.. I know I look stupid doing it hahahaha <BR> <BR> Also, I never got to mention that I hit my three month mark on Friday with being B/P free, so I just wanted to pat myself on the back <em>209</em> Mon, 12 Apr 2010 23:13:26 EST Happy week!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3108102 I love you all!!! Sun, 11 Apr 2010 23:57:14 EST A good Saturday... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3104362 So today was a good day overall. Woke up in the morning and made myself a salad with baked ham, spring mix lettuce, fresh spinach, radishes, a little feta, and some fat free Greek dressing. Then I made my way over to Nick's house to go shopping with his mom because she was going to BJ's and I wanted to get some frozen fatty food to see if I can put a few pounds on my man. He's lost 20 pounds since we moved in and it's getting scary. He's too tiny of a guy as it is! We ended up stopping at Mar... Sat, 10 Apr 2010 22:35:14 EST Out of it... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3095178 I haven't been around a lot lately because I've been moving across the courtyard into our new apartment. I finally don't have to deal with the whining from the ladies living around us and it feels amazing. Because I've been busy with that, I haven't officially worked out since last Friday and I feel like crap because of it. It's almost been a week and I know that I've been running up and down the stairs and moving things and rearranging and unpacking and everything, but without it being the a... Thu, 8 Apr 2010 10:59:26 EST One Month Later Picture Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3062183 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/2/5/l250095085.jpg"> <BR> <BR> About to head off to the gym.. got today's workout printed out from spark, full body, let's see what happens! <BR> <BR> Loves and kisses! Tue, 30 Mar 2010 18:40:16 EST It's Monday again! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3058828 The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own... You realize that you control your own destiny. -Albert Ellis <BR> <BR> So I may have been a little less motivated to work out this week, but I've just been busy more than anything. After last Tuesday, my trainer killed my thighs because we pretty much did lunges the whole half hour combined with something else for my arms and abs and I was sore till Friday. Friday I did a last chance workout that was O... Mon, 29 Mar 2010 22:39:55 EST You can do it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3040417 You're all beautiful on the inside and out <em>202</em> Wed, 24 Mar 2010 23:23:39 EST Good first day of the week! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3031879 Soooooooo it was a good day. <BR> Breakfast - 1/2 cup of mango chunks and 1 1/4 cups of honey bunches of oat with peaches mmm <BR> Weight Watchers Blueberry Pie Yogurt for snack <BR> Lunch - Chicken salad with light mayo, 2 stalks of celery and 1/2 tomato on 2 pieces of whole wheat toast and a big orange <BR> Lightly salted rice cake for snack <BR> Dinner - Swai fillet fried on a pan in olive oil with basil, salt and pepper. 1/2 cup of brown rice and about a cup and a half of mixed veggies, t... Mon, 22 Mar 2010 23:12:26 EST Happy Weekend! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3027031 So I had a pretty good weekend, I've been eating well and I got to spend time with my friends and family, very good overall! <BR> <BR> I've been getting my stamina slowly up for running... the problem is that I get so bored with it that I don't really want to keep going after like 4 minutes because I just keep staring down at the timer to see when I can stop. It's not necessarily a physical blockage because I know I can probably keep going, but I only really started this week so I'm gonna ea... Sun, 21 Mar 2010 21:20:32 EST Hour at the gym today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3013131 Spent 30 minutes on the elliptical, 348 calories, 28 minutes on the treadmill, 235 calories, stretched out and relaxed with 19 minutes of yoga. <BR> <BR> Maybe I'm finally gonna relax now that my cat has been taken away. My boyfriend's mom's co-worker is retiring on Saturday and she has a bunch of cats already so she was happy to take him. Thank god, I cannot get woken up at 3 am and 5 am and everything! It was just too much.. sigh. Wed, 17 Mar 2010 22:24:12 EST Motivation again!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3009173 So my bad mental weekend turned out to be a bigger motivator than ever and I went hardcore at the gym for two hours today. Started with 18 minutes on the elliptical, burning 206 calories, then did abs and upper body for about 45 minutes and finished up with 21 minutes on the stepper, burning 230 calories. I feel great because I really pushed myself with the arms and abs. I set up a workout for myself in a little book and brought it with me and followed it to the t! I'm really getting much str... Tue, 16 Mar 2010 23:26:29 EST Not the best weekend/day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3004321 So I've been depressed from the look of the scale and I've been gaining weight for no reason, as far as I can tell. This has been making me eat like crap instead and pushing me into more of a depressive state. <BR> <BR> I calmed myself down by doing 50 minutes of yoga, hopefully it'll continue. I really need to get some sleep and my stupid cat woke me up at 5:00 am this morning. I swear, I'm gonna kill it before we give it away! Mon, 15 Mar 2010 22:14:19 EST I'm running out of clever titles right now... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2985177 Today's been an okay day. Went to the gym after work with Megan and did the treadmill while watching the end of You, Me, and Dupree. My gym has a theater room where it plays the same movie on a loop all day. Most of the time, it's a good movie, but occasionally they'll throw in the crappy ones. This was the first time I saw them do a repeat movie, which isn't too bad in the year that I've been going there now. <BR> Sooooo I did a hill on the treadmill and while I didn't burn as many calorie... Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:20:03 EST Cardio Overload! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2979869 Yeah, so I may have gone overboard on the cardio today, but god it felt so good. <em>43</em> At lunchtime I walked around the Novartis campus and tracked it with the fitness maps. Turns out I walked 2.69 miles for 293 calories! Go meee. It was gorgeous today too, I was so full of energy in the afternoon! So maybe I was a bit sweaty when I came back to the office, but at least I had changed my pants lol <em>67</em> <BR> <BR> After work I had my trainer so I did 16 minutes (180 calories) ... Tue, 9 Mar 2010 20:57:56 EST Ahh stability http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2975259 I'm finding that I'm going through this weight loss-plateau for some time-weight loss cycle and it's getting kinda annoying because I know I'm working just as hard every week and every day at this and I'm not seeing results as fast as I want to. Yes, there are physical differences, and yes, I don't stay exactly to my diet, but it's not like I'm eating anything that's really bad for me. I'll eat the same thing two days in a row and somehow gain three pounds after the second day but have lost w... Mon, 8 Mar 2010 20:56:26 EST Been good :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2960205 Today I felt like I ate a lot of bad things.. I kept snacking and eating little bits of chocolate and things that were around the office. I stopped myself at the Cranberry Dunkers, thank god. When I add up all the calories, I go over, but the other food that I'm actually eating is much better for me than I realize so I don't think I'm really doing all that bad. I weigh the same right now as I did this morning, which means that I'll be back down to 202.5 in the morning most likely. I think eve... Thu, 4 Mar 2010 23:05:38 EST Just doin mah fitness http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2950460 Let's see.. 40 minutes on the stepper today on intervals.. ranging between levels 7 to 10. Burned 454 calories oww oww! Basic ole day :) Don't really feel like blogging muuuuch Tue, 2 Mar 2010 21:15:55 EST I'm a beast! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2946003 So last night I couldn't sleep and I was flipping through On Demand and ended up putting on the Biggest Loser. I've never actually seen the show ever before and now I'm obsessed. I ended up watching two episodes and not actually getting to sleep till 1:30 (believe me, I looked it when I was at work today). When I came home from work today, I ended up watching another episode and then went to the gym afterwards. That was like the biggest motivation in the world. I did a crazy interval workout ... Mon, 1 Mar 2010 23:12:10 EST Just an average day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2940264 Nothing too exciting today... Munching on a skinny cow french vanilla truffle ice cream for dessert! <BR> <BR> Went to the gym and did 26 minutes on the stepper, burning 304 calories. Did a little bit of strength training afterwards, some ab stuff, a little legs. i'm a bit sore now but of course you all know how much I love that feeling haha <BR> <BR> Had a 6 inch grilled chicken sub for lunch from Subway and 2/3 of their bowl of chicken noodle soup, wasn't entirely delicious but now at lea... Sun, 28 Feb 2010 21:37:59 EST Success!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2934651 So I'm finally making some more progress with all the work I'm putting into this! I've been working out like a maniac and have have 2,806 calories burned and 381 minutes of cardio fitness this week. I track all the Wii Fit I do as cardio because I like tracking the calories even though some of it is more strength training than cardio, but I do what I want! <BR> <BR> So I know the last few entries I've been complaining about how I've been at a plateau and all the work I've been doing hasn't ... Sat, 27 Feb 2010 12:14:18 EST Snoooow days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2931295 So snow days at work mean I get to work from home. That means I get to play with my wii fit throughout out the day if I feel like it and I really get to eat well. Yesterday I got to eat leftovers from my mom's birthday dinner (lamb mmm) and then got a salad from a pizzeria when the boys were ordering but I only had 1/4 of it maaaybe. I didn't end up eating anything the rest of the day (that was around 4:30ish) and I was starving by the time it was sleeptime, but I didn't want to eat so late. ... Fri, 26 Feb 2010 13:09:28 EST Overindulgence all around http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2917405 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/1/1/l111453741.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Okay, this is now the 3rd time I'm writing this blog because spark keeps being retarded and making me go back and change things, but erasing EVERYTHING I posted. So let's try this yet again. <BR> <BR> Yesterday I went over my calorie limit by 550. EEK! I was starving in the morning and had a bowl of cereal, but was still hungry by the time I got to work so I ended up having a bagel with a little bit of cream cheese. ... Tue, 23 Feb 2010 11:08:04 EST Getting into the swing of things... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2903567 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/6/6/l665335272.jpg"> <BR> So I spent some time after work with my dad and it got me into the mood to workout cause I told him I was going to the gym. I didn't go to the gym. <BR> <BR> However, I DID finally use my Jillian Michael's Fitness Ultimatum for the Wii for the second time since I got it two Christmases ago haha... I remembered why I didn't really like it... I feel like I'm doing so much and it doesn't really track what I'm doing well at al... Fri, 19 Feb 2010 21:34:30 EST Sigh http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2869667 Today's doomsday and I'm currently fighting with Nick from two days ago. <BR> <BR> I want to cry so bad and that's not going to go over well at work. I don't want to do this alone. <BR> <BR> <em>46</em> Thu, 11 Feb 2010 11:11:08 EST Weekend's Done... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2855655 Well I'm not going to talk about my situation. I was upset and I've been dealing with some emotional breakdowns and issues. <BR> <BR> Needless to say, I haven't exactly been watching what I've been eating, but I'm glad to say that I haven't actually backtracked on any of my goals. I still went to the gym every other day and I've been trying to watch myself. I didn't purge and I didn't go extremely overboard with eating. Things are going to work out now but I just need to get myself back on ... Mon, 8 Feb 2010 10:22:06 EST Ahh, the weekend went okay http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2824183 So, this was quite a weekend. Ended up telling both my best friend and my boyfriend about my ED on Saturday. Got mixed reactions by Nick, but things turned out okay in the end. We had been fighting and at least he finally knows now that I'm not going to be the most stable person in the world. He doesn't exactly like the idea that I'm going to be taking my frustrations out on him, but I assured him that I would do my best not to. So we did make up and he actually finally helped out cleaning th... Mon, 1 Feb 2010 09:02:40 EST Oy... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2819095 So I told him. I'll let you all know tomorrow what happened. Sun, 31 Jan 2010 00:55:46 EST I need to come clean http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2815621 So I realized that in order to really embrace the changes that I've been doing, I need to tell my boyfriend. We're living together and I've just been going through so many emotions lately that it's not fair to him when I'm upset and I blow up at him. I can see him as the one I'm going to marry and in order to take a step in that direction, I need to come clean. <BR> <em>230</em> Sat, 30 Jan 2010 01:37:15 EST First month down... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2812764 So I'm proud of myself that this is the first year that I've actually stuck to my resolutions and it's almost the end of January now. I started everything weeks apart from each other though, so it's hard to keep track of things sometimes. <BR> My last cigarette was on January 3rd. <BR> My last purge was on January 9th. <BR> My last "victory" was on January 22nd. <BR> I've been keeping up going to the gym at least four times a week. <BR> I haven't let myself waste money by binging so I reall... Fri, 29 Jan 2010 10:50:21 EST Today's not much better.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2807959 So I flipped out on him again last night like I did two weeks ago and I hate myself for it once again. I don't know why I keep taking all my frustrations out on him, but you'd think that if I had a crappy day, he'd be the one to try to cheer me up instead of doing even more that he knew was going to piss me off. <BR> <BR> I didn't backtrack on my goals. Lost another pound, in fact, probably because I barely had anything to eat last night. I started throwing pizza boxes and garbage around wh... Thu, 28 Jan 2010 09:12:43 EST You know what? It DOES suck.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2806590 It does suck... it does suck when you have no one on your side and it sucks when you have a crappy day and you can't get anything better. And it sucks when all you want is to ruin everything you've done and go to the dark side. <BR> And then you sit there and you're all alone. <BR> <BR> And it's just you. <BR> <BR> <BR> And it's all in your head. <BR> <BR> And then what? Maybe it isn't all in your head. Maybe you're going through a lot more than you want to tell him and it's hard when yo... Wed, 27 Jan 2010 21:53:01 EST Frustration? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2778179 So I feel like I'm slipping a little, but not really in my resolve. I know I won't do anything but because I forgot to track my food last night, I just start to stop caring a little. I know it's not what I want but I'm not getting any more results from what I've been doing. I guess I just need to amp it up a little more at the gym, but it's so slow! I'm going to start doing more strength training with the machines to build up muscle and I know that's just going to frustrate me even more when... Thu, 21 Jan 2010 16:43:42 EST Day 16 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2766076 Had a good night last night, Nick made me dinner :) He made salmon, green beans, and a small scoop of macaroni and cheese for me yummm. Later we played poker with the boys, and what can I say, the last two times we've played, I ended up winning! <BR> <em>294</em> Because of that, it paid for my bowling last night :) We go on Monday nights because they have a service industry night special where we pay $10 and we can play all night from 10 till 2 am. Probably cause there's no one ever there... Tue, 19 Jan 2010 09:23:55 EST One week binge and purge free! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2754005 Wow, I'm actually amazed that I've made it this far. I honestly can't remember when the last time was that I made a real effort to get this thing under control. I'm really proud of myself and I know I can keep going. Today's really my most difficult day because Nick is always working all day, so I've generally spent my Saturdays eating everything in the house and throwing it all up and continuing on. I'm going to try to keep myself busy by cross-stitching, watching Breakfast at Tiffany's for ... Sat, 16 Jan 2010 15:28:05 EST Major major development... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2744047 So I kind of had a little breakdown last night and almost let myself ruin everything that I've been doing. I was sitting around watching Lost with Nick and let myself drink too much and overreacted to something he was saying because he overreacted a little bit too (he hadn't been drinking at all). I threw some pillows, stuffed animals, my phone, and ended up spending the night bawling. It was a great night up until that point and it wasn't what I had been planning on whatsoever. <BR> So beca...

Thu, 14 Jan 2010 10:15:23 EST I'm back http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2440649 I strayed off course for a week or so but now I'm back and I'm motivated. I do fabulously when I track everything, but when drama and things surround my life, I end up forgetting my diet and eating my feelings. My boyfriend and I are in the midst of trying to move out of his parent's house, where we've been for about a year and a half now. I can't take it anymore and his parents kicked him out of the house two weeks ago, though if you ask them now, they've apparently forgotten all about it. M...
