So I started a new job within my company a year ago and gained like 20lbs. Now part of it is due to the job - I work longer hours and I sit at my desk all day. Everyone in my group eats lunch at their desk, including my boss. And because I'm bus... Read more
Planning & Motivation ... undone by food
So, I planned to go to the gym today but when I got home, I really wasn't feeling it. I just wanted to relax and just do nothing. Work was stressful today. But motivation won out and I went to the gym and did ST.

Remebering to eat or rather, packing enough to eat

So I stepped on the scale this weekend 178. Which I don't blame myself for. I just came back from a bachelorette weekend in Vegas. When you are paying $42 for dinner for just yourself, you kinda want to get your money's worth. While I did eat v... Read more
Short Term Goal Not Met, but Close
So I stepped on the scale this morning and 177.6. I didn't reach my short term goal of 175, but I am close, just 2.6lbs away. I can't believe I'm down to 177 already. I haven't been in the 170's for a year. At this time last year, I was 173lbs. ... Read more

22.7 miles in 1 Week.. Now I know why I was so tired.
I've been a little MIA recently and that's because I've been on vacation. I went to Quebec, Canada for a week. It was cold, and it snowed, but I had an awesome time.
So.. 22.7 miles. That's INSANE. I finally sat down today to map a lot of t... Read more

Just a Little Reminder to myself...
Since I'm starting over again, I wanted to give myself a little reminder of where I started, where I went, and where I will go again. Every time I'm unmotivated, or doubting, I know to come to this blog and remember how this weight didn't get pa... Read more
