So my roommates and I grocery shop separately from each other because of our work schedules. Unfortunately, sometimes this happens:

I'm a Planet Fitness member, and the one 3 miles from my house is finally open! Oh happy day!
In addition to that, my weight has finally dropped below 170. I started at 176 when I joined Sparkpeople again, and that was around the first of t... Read more
It's been awhile.
Long time no talk, Sparkpeople.
Though my absence has been notable here, it hasn't been notable in other aspects of my life. I've still been working out regularly, which is great. It's really become part of my regular routine again and I fe... Read more
2 week battle.
Just a quick post today.
So I have completely stalled out on losing weight. It hasn't budged in almost two weeks. They say the last ten pounds are the hardest to lose, but I've never had this problem before. I've dialed up the intensity of my... Read more
Can we dial it back a few years?
It's been a few weeks. Fear not, I haven't fallen off the wagon. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of finding out that my favorite size 10 dress fits.
Hooray! Go Me! Woohoo!
However, I wish I had found out it fit under better circumstances... Read more
Today I am a very happy girl.
I am so proud to report that my size 13 jeans are officially TOO BIG! :)
Looks like some of my tax money is going to NEW CLOTHES!

The days are getting hard to count.
I think I'm going to stop counting the days, it seems counterproductive. After all, I'm making a change for the rest of my life, not just a change to last for a set number of days.
I'm doing pretty well staying motivated. Things with work have... Read more
Day 8-14: Catching up to do.
Last weekend I got really, really sick. I got a stomach flu that lasted almost 4 days and on top of it, I got strep throat. This is what working in an elementary school does for you.
Needless to say, I was too sick to get out of bed and cou... Read more
Day 7: Stomach Flu
Good thing today was a scheduled day off anyway. I certainly wouldn't be hitting the gym considering I can't even keep water down right now.
Hoping to kick this soon.

Day 6: Kicking my own butt
Hit the gym hard after work today (tomorrow is a day off). Killed my abs and legs.
Sometimes you have to kick your own butt.

Day 5: Time Constraints
I joined a gym to help meet my goals this time around. But today was my first day back at work after the holidays, and I found myself short on time. Trying to squeeze an hour workout in today just wasn't possible. I still made it to the gym and ... Read more
Day 4: Eating Struggles
I've been attempting to eat "clean" since the beginning of December. Everyone knows that the holidays are a bad time to try and diet, especially in a family like mine. 80% of celebrating is eating.
Today I took a day off from the gym, My middl... Read more
Day 3: The Lightbulb Moment
I was killin' it on the elliptical trainer today at the gym. 40 minutes non-stop, clocking almost 2 1/2 miles. While I was jammin' to and doing my thing, I realized that when I began my initial weight loss journey back in 2011, that I would have... Read more
Days 1 & 2: Back on the Wagon
So I'm starting my new year's resolution a little early. I joined a gym, and have started going. Yesterday was my first day back "on the wagon." Man, did it feel great! It's amazing how quickly your body remembers. After my first workout I felt ... Read more
