Thoughts of the Day
Find a moment of silence at the end of each day. Breathe deeply. Stretch your body. Give thanks to all of the many blessings you have in your life (once you start counting them, you’ll find many!). Make it a habit to connect t... Read more
The theme of the day is learning from mistakes, so I'm going to write about a mistake I made yesterday: drinking soda.
I moved into a new apartment, and we ordered food for delivery, and it just sounded delicious to have a coke. Unfortun... Read more
I did it!
I had a great day as far as diet/exercise goes! Well, actually as far as the rest of life goes too. I got up, had a healthy breakfast, went to work, had a little grocery store run/light snack, and went to the gym for a workout with a trainer.

Weight Loss Stress
I just read this article: http://www.sparkpeople.com/res
I think I am letting myself get stressed out by weight loss. I worry a ton about whether or not I get the right amount of calories per day, a... Read more
Today I felt like I ate a whole bunch: breakfast, snack after first shift, lunch, quick snack before work, one during, and a little dinner after, and I logged everything in my tracker, and I am still at the lower end of my calorie range! I ate v... Read more
Last night I went out with my friends to a place called Zombie Burger and Drink Lab. Normally when I eat there I try one of their many burgers, split a fry basket and/or appetizer with my companions, and I often get a drink with my meal (oh, the... Read more
All right, I'm starting this week off well. I had breakfast, a light snack, and lunch and all were pretty healthy. I just got back from having a physical (Happy Valentine's Day to me!! lol).
Since it's Monday, I decided to start a Goal of... Read more

I want my body to be strong!
I want to be able to play anything with the kids at work (daycare) and not get winded after a little bit of running around.

The Weekend Approaches...
and I'm going to be good! I am going to eat well and go to the gym both days. It'll be great. Tonight I'm playing at Sam and Gabe's, but I'll ask for my food to take home at the end of the night instead of eating there. I will drink water. I... Read more
Beyond the Scale
There are a bunch of ways that I've seen improvement outside the scale (which is good because the scale has been frustrating...). I've learned the steps in Zumba pretty well, so I feel like I can really dance full out when I go to class. I don... Read more
In general, I was pretty healthy today, so I need to focus on that, right? I ate a well-rounded breakfast, took my gym clothes to my first shift so I could go straight away, got in a quick walk/run on the treadmill, did laundry, ate a healthy ve... Read more
Hello! It's a new week, and I'm starting this one pretty well too. I got up on time, had a healthy breakfast, went to kids west, and I went straight to the gym after. I finally started the 5K Rookie Running Challenge, and that felt good. I'm j... Read more
I know that it's a small accomplishment, but I just ignored a very strong McDonald's craving as I drove home. I had just eaten a healthy lunch, and I was pretty full, but after my vegan sandwich a burger sounded amazing. I could imagine eating... Read more
Here are just a few things that I can make quickly and easily:
1. Sandwiches. :)
2. Tuna Salad. Or Tuna Noodle. Haven't had that in ages, but it's pretty good with whole wheat pasta and I could add more veggies to make it even healthier... Read more
Feelin' Good, Feelin' Great
And that Outkast song is stuck in my head. You know why? Today I was awesome! I haven't gone over my calories, I got more than 10000 steps on Fitbit, I did Zumba, and I did the Day 2 video of the Jump Start Fitness Challenge. Bought a new cookb... Read more
