I've been thinking a lot about motivation lately, mostly because mine is finally increasing again. We've all heard it before - motivation is not magic. Motivation must be built or grown. I was thinking about this today, and about how much gro... Read more

Friday, December 30, 2011      12 comments

A break from the normal "this sucks" blog. *lol* So I've spent the majority of my time planning lately. I'll be the first to tell you that New Years Resolutions, in their traditional sense, do NOT work. However... (I hate starting senten... Read more
Yesterday Went Great Until...
Thursday, December 29, 2011      18 comments

*sigh* I did so well yesterday. Woke up in the AM. Had 1/2 a bagel with my homemade peanut butter (which, compared to the other stuff is not only better for me but less calories). I drank my coffee. I was feeling good. On my first ... Read more

A Very Merry Christmas
Monday, December 26, 2011      8 comments

Sure, we could attribute my emotions to the pretty number I found on the scale this AM (301.8), but that really isn't it. Honestly, it was because I was just able to be in the moment and enjoy myself and my family. Let's get this out of th... Read more
Moving Forward...Not Really...Well, Maybe
Thursday, December 22, 2011      8 comments

I keep walking forward, though it doesn't feel like I'm making much progress. I have to accept that the scale is likely not going to change in the direction I want right now. I'm having difficulty with my workouts, which ALWAYS affects... Read more
It's the Little Things
Wednesday, December 21, 2011      10 comments

Yesterday was. I ate considerably better, while not exactly "on". I'm quite sure I went over my calories, though I'll never know because I didn't log anything...and I don't care to right now. I'm still fighting that "UGH!" feeling, m... Read more

Last week, I wrote out my frustration and then I shut down. I shut down everything. For one whole week I just stopped going through the motions. I stopped fighting, pushing forward. I just stood still for one week. Most people would say I w... Read more

309.6 Yep. I'm a good girl on my trip. I walk until it hurts. I run and/or otherwise workout every day for at least 20 minutes. I try to stay away from the "bad" foods we all know and love. I limit myself and try to make the most of it... Read more
Farewell, DC!
Thursday, December 08, 2011      8 comments

My bags are (mostly) packed, I'm on my way (tomorrow)... I had plans coming into this week. 1) Enjoy and relax. I relaxed myself to the brink (and past) boredom as early as Monday night. I'm not so great at relaxing. 2) Run ... Read more
