I'm always fluctuating between 157 and 160. So frustrating. I think I really need to cut out artificial sweeteners, since they seem to stall alot of people. I think I might be experiencing that too.
I've had my coffee black before, so no r... Read more
I shall not let my self go in marriage
I worked out pretty hard before my wedding this past December. I didn't lose that much weight; I was still around 155, but I felt great and it was a wonderful wedding. I was one of those chubby brides, but I was healthy and getting in shape.

The Good Burn
Last night's cardio was Insanity: Cardio Recovery. It was "recovery" in terms of not alot of jumping and dynamic cardio, but there was alot of lunge/squat work and BOY did that burn! One thing I have always loved about my body is that I have str... Read more
Sore, not Sorry!
Very sore today after Insanity: Cardio Power & Resistance last night, but I feel AWESOME! I realize now that I like feeling that good sore after a great workout; hopefully this can fuel me to be more consistent this time around.
I keep thi... Read more
Here's to a healthy week!
So I promised to do 1 session of Insanity this weekend, and as I was lying in bed yesterday after an afternoon nap (that ended around 7... haha) I was thinking to myself "man... I said i'd do Insanity at least once this weekend, but I haven't. O... Read more
Finding Motivation to Work Out...
I always have a hard time finding cardio exercises I like to do. When I lived in the city I loved cardio boxing; so much fun! Since i've moved i'm having a hard time finding a studio that offers that. Still, I signed up for a Piloxing class (thi... Read more

Today my goal is to add more fiber in my diet and also more protein (banana, apple, Chobani yogurt, cucumber with breakfast, and i'll have baby... Read more
At peace, not discouraged
I haven't stayed on the strictly healthy/calorie counting track for a while, but I won't say I've completely fallen off the wagon. I got a dog and while that's not the main reason sparkpeople has become a lower priority (I moved at the end of la... Read more

Keep on keepin' on
So i've been a bit more lax about working out these past 4-5 days, but still losing steadily, mostly again because i'm trying to eat better. Today I couldn't believe I weighed in at 153.0, i've been teetering at 154 to 155, but I am so happy and... Read more
Weighed in at 154.8 this morning! Woohoooo still going strong!

Last night I took a boxing c... Read more
Slow Progress is Still Progress!
I am happy to say that I have been eating quite healthfully and staying within my calorie limits for the week. I weighed in at 155.8 last Thursday, and 4 days later I am at 155.2, and most likely it's really 155.0 since I had a (warning TMI) bow... Read more
Weight Loss is 80% Diet... 20% Exercise?
I've been eating very healthfully and sticking to my recommended daily calorie allowance for the first time... ever? I used to much rather work out so I could eat whatever the heck I wanted, but I never saw the scale move, just more muscles, mor... Read more
I just returned from a week-long trip to California and Vegas. Boy did I have a great time! I even lost 1 pound from all the walking we did, and I was less apt to snack because I knew my next meal would be really really good!
