Wed, 28 Nov 2012 12:48:18 EST Getting in the Swing of Things I've had a few really good gym days. :) I feel better already and have more energy. Tonight I have a make up lesson at 7pm so I'm going to hit the gym before it and the lesson will go so fast. It's just one! 30 minutes. So easy. Plus the girl is nice and a pretty decent swimmer so it will be easy peasey lemon squeezey. Good attitude. <BR> <BR> I'm pretty bummed about hearing about my friend Rob. I am actually really in shock still and disbelief. It's surreal. I really thought it w... Wed, 14 Nov 2012 15:43:57 EST Hurricane Sandy Buns Well Hurricane Sandy Buns really knocked us all for a loop. Fortunately, our biggest loss at the Wantagh house was power. Laura's little beach shack was rocked and has to be knocked down. All her stuff got wet, muddy and sandy. The upside is that she was not getting along with her room mate and now can move somewhere else and live alone. :) <BR> <BR> Long Beach got effffed up! I want to volunteer when I get back to LI. Supposedly it looks like a war zone. Jersey Shore is pretty muc... Mon, 5 Nov 2012 12:35:48 EST ....? How can something so simple and potentially clean cut as weight loss become sooo complex and difficult?? Just consume less calories than you burn off a day. I think you need to focus on focusing. hahah Don't let your life become too much and complicated. Temporarily lay off the wild partying but such is life! I have a wedding in texas and then halloween! How can I not drink and go to bed early? I'm young! <BR> <BR> There is a price here. IF you want to party, then you will either ... Tue, 23 Oct 2012 12:46:33 EST Getting By Junk food tempts me sooo bad! I love sweets and anything bad for me! I also have a huge appretite. I can eat till the cows come home or I become a cow myself!! I think I need to seriously be prepared with healthy super foods and fill myself with that first!! I know the answers, I know what to do. I just need to friggin do it! Wed, 17 Oct 2012 09:22:28 EST Keeping this streak alive! I've been doing good just need to stay motivated. The biggest thing will be just making the scale go down. dooo it! Thu, 11 Oct 2012 10:14:00 EST At least I'm using this a lot and that's a step in the right direction I have been posting my food and workouts and now blogging much more. This is good. That was my first goal. And it might seem easy but its not and im proud i've gone even this far. I'm freaking starving right now and thinking about what to have for breakfast...feeling like a bagel but I need to round it out with some protein and fruit. <BR> <BR> Yup weight is around 160. Just blast through for crying out loud! Start with a solid 5 pound weight loss and go from there. Think mainly abo... Tue, 9 Oct 2012 10:07:59 EST Good Scale! Well my new job is pretty cool so far. The gym is absolutely astounding and amazing! HUGE, so clean such high standards and sooo much equipment and cool classes. This is the perfect environment to train to be a rescue swimmer. Seriously, focus. No other stuff needs to distract. Work out like a champ everyday and set a date for you pst. Bunker and Ricky are going to be SEALs I think you can be a friggin rescue swimmer!! It will be SOO cool. You will be part of an exclusive elite and s... Mon, 8 Oct 2012 19:31:45 EST Ironman 70.3 Oh and by the way I CRUSHED the half ironman and it was awesome. SO hard, the hardest thing I have done in my life thus far. I'm really proud of myself. It was life changing. Sun, 7 Oct 2012 12:56:23 EST Weigh Yourself!!! Weigh yourself on oct 10th. It will help. Yes, it is scary but how bad could it possibly be?? You still fit in your favorite jeans so the most you'll probably be is 160 and even if that is the case then just friggin lose the weight. Knowing your actual weight will motivate you because then you will have the courage to get on the scale again and again and see your progress. <BR> <BR> So don't be a baby, and if you are scared that the number is going to stink, that is why I'm giving you ... Sun, 7 Oct 2012 12:55:37 EST Turning Point I feel like every time I lose weight and go on a fitness journey, it follows some sort of turning point, breaking point, etc. Its like I hit bottom and then decide not to put up with it anymore and do something. Most often, it is outside influences that shock me into sticking with it. For example, some A hole calling me fat or me realizing I will never reach my athletic goals at my current state. Orrrr, doing it to impress someone I have feelings for. To me, all these reasons whether goo... Mon, 24 Sep 2012 17:11:41 EST
