Since When Is "Single" a Swear Word??

Friday, March 30, 2012      17 comments

In high school, I had a great group of friends. I was well-liked by people from many different "groups" and I got along with pretty much everyone. Of course, I had that main group of friends. There were about 15 of us or so. Some came and some w... Read more

Determination + A Little Bit of Yoda = A Great Workout!

Wednesday, March 28, 2012      10 comments

Lately I've been starting off my workout by warming up on the treadmill for 5 minutes, then resetting the treadmill and running a mile. I remember the day that I hit a 12 minute mile and I was SO proud of myself. I mean, I refused to do that eve... Read more

I am NOT a Dog. No More Food Rewards.

Tuesday, March 27, 2012      10 comments

I've found that the less I post here, the more likely I am to cheat on myself. Yeah. I said cheat on myself, not cheat on my diet or cheat on my workout. When I cut a workout short or I eat cheese fries, I'm not cheating on my diet. My diet does... Read more

Yoda Rocks. And Worries.

Wednesday, March 14, 2012      7 comments

First of all, let me remind you all that I skipped the gym for two weeks. I ate fast food and overall it was just a rough couple of weeks for me. Yesterday I met with Yoda for a training session. I hadn't trained with him in weeks. In fact,... Read more

Not Forgetting Anymore!

Monday, March 12, 2012      9 comments

Saturday was tough. Seriously. I think it had been about two weeks since the last time I had been to the gym and probably closer to a month since I had really pushed myself when I wasn't with Yoda. It's amazing what two weeks can do to a p... Read more

Waking Up

Friday, March 09, 2012      2 comments

Yoda sent me a text today. "Whoo!! Let's do this!" I feel like those words mean the world to me right now. I've been sick. I've been tired. I've been lonely and alone. I've been depressed. But Yoda is still there to cheer me on. H... Read more

It's Reboot Time!

Friday, March 02, 2012      13 comments

I've been naughty. I've been cheating, eating fast food almost twice every day. I've been skipping the gym, blaming it on being sick or tired or too busy. I cancelled my training sessions, making lame excuses about not being able ... Read more

Monday, February 06, 2012      2 comments

Saturday was a little practice run for my first RVLution Weight Loss Challenge rally. We went to Boise and I really got to see how this is going to work and figure out a little bit more of what I want to say to people. It's going to be great. Bu... Read more

A Genuine Smile Can Change Your Life

Tuesday, January 31, 2012      21 comments

The last ten years of my life have sadly been quite pathetic. It's true. I dated a guy for 8 years, gained weight and gained a bad attitude. I went from happy and bubbly and fun to sad and depressed and angry. I started basing my opinion of myse... Read more

Kicking It Up a Notch

Wednesday, January 25, 2012      26 comments

I had a rough day yesterday. To make a long story short, the guy I like asked for some space. I cried and blamed myself - my looks, my emotional issues, and especially my weight. But I know that those aren't things that he worried about. He like... Read more

Terrified AND Flattered At The Same Time

Monday, January 23, 2012      11 comments

I am terrified. I know that I've come a long way and that I look better now than I did 8 months ago. I know that I've lost pounds and inches and I've learned healthy habits that will last me a long time. But this weekend, two terrifyin... Read more

No One Can Change Your Life Except For You

Friday, January 20, 2012      10 comments

It's true. Everything that changes in your life is up to you. You make all the changes. No one can force you to be a certain way or feel something different or want something. It's all you. I've told a few people that they changed my life. ... Read more

Recumbent Bike - The Gym's Secret Torture Machine

Thursday, January 19, 2012      9 comments

I think it's really been awhile since I've had any good Yoda stories. He's kind of been predictable lately. Aaaand then I made a mistake. I told Yoda I was bored with the treadmill and that I just didn't want to do it anymore. Um.... Read more
