#70 - Confession.
I haven't really gotten back on track since I returned from Alaska. I'm having trouble with motivation. Before the trip, I used the vacation as motivation to keep pushing through, but now, it seems like I am not working towards anything.

#69 - Alaskan Vacation & Update.
Let's just say that after I wrote the blog about "Failing" on my first day of vacation, I took everyone's advice, and I did a bit of relaxing. I tried new foods (I tried to remember to allow my body to tell me when I was full). We did lots of hi... Read more
#68 - Failing.
So far on my vacation, food has been the enemy. For some reason, I can't stop eating. I did great yesterday up until Charlotte. The plane was delayed due to a storm, so all the way to Phoenix, my boyfriend and I were stressing about dinner optio... Read more
#67 - Pre-Vacation Blog.
So, tomorrow afternoon, I step on a plane to Alaska! Ahh. I can't wait! Honestly, the last four days of work have been brutal, so I need a relaxing vacation! I'm excited to see my family. We talked yesterday a little about some of the activities... Read more
#66 - Nervous.
I need some support, Sparkies.
In 7 days, I leave for a week of vacation. I'm visiting my dad in Alaska! I'm excited but very nervous.
See, I restarted my journey on Monday June 11th. Since then, I have worked out 21 times, eating hea... Read more
#65 - "There's No Stopping Us Right Now."
Yesterday was my designated day for Body Rock. Haha. Earlier in the day, I had talked myself into doing it, but due to cramps (darn you, TOM!), I decided to do an easier Body Rock. (This is huge for me since my cramps can get really bad. I usual... Read more
#64 - Weekend Update and Monday's Body Rock.
I really think I am beginning to get the hang of this "journey". I'm eating healthy every day. I haven't had a soda in two weeks. I've exercised 13 of the 14 days since I've started. I watch what I eat. I aim for six glasses of water. This time ... Read more
#63 - Quick Body Rock Update.
After work, I came home and did the Body Rock "Bikini Bunny Workout". Let me tell you it was quite tough especially with forty pounds of extra weight on you. I tired out around the fourth exercise (1st run through). Here's why:
- 50 seconds... Read more
#62 - Support.
I woke up this morning to 167.8 pounds. I've lost about four pounds since I started last Monday. This is great... in some aspects.
I say this because every time I have hit 167, I usually quit/fall apart. I don't know why, but I do. Maybe I ... Read more
#61 - Update.
The past few days have gone pretty well actually.
I have maintained my exercise streak (since last Monday) of doing at least 20-30 minutes of anything. Mostly, I walk. I even kept it up on the weekend although I didn't track it since I didn... Read more
#60 - So Far, So Good.
A week ago, I posted photos of what I thought were terrible photos. My mindset: I was bloated, I was huge, and I was very unhealthy. So, I decided to change my life. I started Monday.
I'm happy to report that I am doing fairly well. Last n... Read more
#59 - Lost Today's Battle.
After getting on here this morning with my TWO "Yay" moments, I had a "what the heck" moment too.
I'm not blaming it on anyone but myself.
It's raining something serious here, and I have been waiting for two hours for the rain to let ... Read more
#58 - Day 1 (Monday June 12th)
I probably won't blog every day as sometimes it can get repetitive. However, if I have a "Yay" moment or if I need some support, that's most likely when I will blog. I just find it more interesting this way! :)
So, yesterday, I decided to c... Read more
#57 - Embarrassed.
(Sorry for these being turned sideways. My computer wouldn't let me turn them.)
This is the re... Read more
#56 - Fear.
Today, I have read a few people's blogs; each one has dealt with fear of losing weight and being successful. After reading these, I feel this might apply to me as well.
I have been "dieting" for several years (on and off), and only until I ... Read more
