I decided that this year is going to be the year for accountability. I am going to track each meal as well as my water intake and take responsibility for what is going on inside of me. And after talking about waking up at 5:00am to be at the gym... Read more

I can't believe it, but I just ran 5 miles today! I have been okay at three miles, and have been tired, but felt like I could do more, so today for my 'long' run, I decided to go for 5 miles instead of the planned 4 that I was going to do. I'm s... Read more

I just weighed myself in this morning, and if my morning measurements are accurate, I now weigh 142.8! I am SO close to be in the 140 range and I am so excited, because that means that I will be in the 130's soon--a number I haven't seen in YEAR... Read more

Went Down a Pants Size!

Saturday, April 14, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday was a very exciting day. For the past couple of weeks, I have a pair of jeans that I pretty much wear everyday during the week (I just started a job working with young two's, so I can't wear nice clothes to work - it's not appropriate!... Read more

Today is the last day that I am no longer working part-time. I caved and applied for a job at a preschool working with the toddlers because there are very few 'true' Administrative Assistant jobs around here that are offering full-time hours. I ... Read more

Ran a 5k Today!

Sunday, March 25, 2012      3 comments

Today I probably should have did the Jillian Michael's workout (I still might), but instead I decided to run at the YMCA. I joined a couple of weeks ago, and only have gone once, so I went there instead. Originally I was only going to run 2 mil... Read more

Today I completed day 2 of the level 1 of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. I am absolutely committed to completing this challenge, even if it isn't 30 days in a row like it maybe should be (I didn't do it yesterday because my abs hurt!). The 20 m... Read more

Still Here!

Wednesday, March 21, 2012      2 comments

I finally feel like something has 'clicked' in this journey to get rid of this unnecessary extra poundage I have put on. While I wouldn't consider myself 'fat', I would definitely consider myself out of shape. I think because I'm petite the extr... Read more

A New Beginning

It's hard to believe that I have been back to this site for almost a week now. I quite honestly forgot about it and seemed to always be on Facebook. In the midst of Lent, I decided to delete my account, and have since focused any free computer t... Read more
