This feels awfully familiar...
This is really hard to admit, and I'd probably much rather keep it to myself, but I need to get it out of me and out there in some way.
Two years ago, I was 150 pounds, the lowest body weight I've ever been. Now, I'm 220 pounds, right where... Read more
The one-woman pity party is OVER
I've been dealing with a slightly severe case of patellar tendinitis (aka jumper's knee) for about 4 weeks so far. When my knee started to hurt so bad that I almost wanted to cry on my ordinary walk home, it was time to go to the doctor. He pres... Read more

My success today is remmebering to step on the scale this morning and losing 5 pounds! Yipee!

Rest/Sick Day Guilt
So, I had a friend with a bit of a cold over yesterday and today I'm debating whether I'm getting sick or if I just had a really bad night's sleep last night. Either way, I wasn't in much of a condition for my walking/jogging intervals today (di... Read more
Two weeks of practically nonstop, intense (for me!) exercise that resulted in a 2-hour nap today reminded me of something I seem to have completely forgotten:
TAKE REST DAYS
That is all.

Looks like I picked up more than souvenirs in America...
So I spent the last three and a half months in California with my boyfriend and his family. While I had a blast and really connected with my sweetiepie, after all the cheap American fast food, fridges and cupboards loaded with tempting treats, a... Read more
Sometimes being a freak pays off
See, I have a big thing about the number 5 and my exercise minutes. I hate for the amount of time I exercised to not be divisible by 5. I don't really know why, but other numbers just look... sloppy, I guess. Because of this, I will usually exer... Read more
Happy Birthday to Me!
Yup! I'm two decades old today! The festivities themselves didn't start off so well, though. My boyfriend and I stayed up late so we could do the thing so special we could only do it on my birthday (play Mario Party, he can't stand it), when I g... Read more

No, please, please wish me luck.

Update: Gloves and Abs!
The weighted gloves? Well, quite frankly, I love them! I've been using them everyday since I got them... and I'm sore as hell! I may still need to get used to the noise they make with each punch, but I've gotten used to physically using them. Wi... Read more
