Sometimes It's Hard To FEEL the Truth
I already blogged about my 5K on Saturday, so even though that's on my mind I'm going to blog about something else.
I struggle a lot with motivation, self-esteem, and a feeling of failure. I fight these things every hour of every day. Some... Read more
My 2nd 5K Tale: An Oxymoron of Feelings
Holy Freaking Epic Yuckiness, Batman.
I am SO GLAD that today's 5K is over.
First of all, I got an email from the 5K coordinator last night telling us that he had ORDER 100 DOZEN DOUGHNUTS that would be waiting for us at the finish lin... Read more
Yoda Took Away My Favorite Things
I think I have a love/hate relationship with Yoda.
In case you missed it, I was avoiding Yoda because I knew that he'd try to make me feel better about my lack of weight loss. Plus, sometimes when he tries to build up my self-esteem he make... Read more
Things I Know, Things I Don't Know, And Adorably Crazy Ladies
I feel awful. Not in an I'm-sick-and-need-to-rest sort of way but more like an I'm-a-mean-person-and-I-should
You see, I talked to Yoda a little bit about my struggles on Tuesday. I even started to cry before I just walked... Read more
Want To See Yoda? He Was On Our Local News....
It was brought to my attention that Yoda (A.K.A. Scott) was on our local news this morning and that the station put it on YouTube. So, if you want to see him check out the link below. Also, keep in mind that it was VERY early this morning. He se... Read more
Sometimes I Don't Know Why Yoda Puts Up With Me
Yesterday I weighed myself at the gym.
I gained weight again.
Yoda was there and we struck up a conversation. Mid-conversation I blurted out that I was so close to quitting. The way I saw it, I tried. I went to the gym every day. I gav... Read more
Blending In and Getting Comfortable
I wore my first sleeveless shirt in public yesterday. Granted, it was a workout shirt, but it was still sleeveless.
You see, I grew up in a very conservative family. We weren't allowed to wear sleeveless or low-cut or revealing clothing. I ... Read more
An Empty Gym!
Because of an unscheduled rest day on Thursday, I decided to go to the gym on Sunday (which is usually my rest day).
Let me tell you this - the gym on Sunday is beautiful. It's sparkly and shiny and welcoming, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, practica... Read more
Yoda Tortures Me, Plus Exciting News!
Yoda pushed me hard today. Seriously. I swear that he's trying to torture me. It's like he knows when I need to work so hard that I can't think for a bit afterwards.
I was proud of myself because I didn't whine for most of it. When we start... Read more
Getting Through the Rough Days
First of all, thank you all for the advice yesterday. Some of it was harsh, but ALL of us was true and real. I haven't talked to Yoda yet, but I will. He had to postpone our training session until Saturday morning.
In other news, I took yes... Read more
Do I Take A Risk? Or Play Things Safe? Love Stinks.
There's this guy. I like him a lot. We're friends and we've dated a bit, but he's recently divorce and going through stuff and I get crazy jealous, so he asked for space and time. On top of all that, he likes a lot of time alone and is less soci... Read more
I'm Not a Wimp!
After yesterday's blog, KKINNEA made a comment that made me smile. I just had to share it with Yoda. So I texted him, told him about how little sleep I had gotten, and told him that she had commented "don't make Yoda yell at you!". He was quick ... Read more
It's a WorkOut, NOT a Fashion Show!
Guess who Yoda is gonna look at sternly later today and maybe give a lecture or two....
It's not because I ate badly.
It's not because I skipped the gym.
It's not because I overtrained.
I officially got 1 1/2 hours of slee... Read more
A Motivation Ripple in the Pond of Life (A.K.A. Yoda's Project)
SERENEART made a comment on my last blog that really got me thinking by asking if Yoda knew what a following he was getting.
Then I realized that I talk about him here in pretty much every blog and in almost all of them he is a focal point.... Read more
My last blog really upset some people. In addition to lots of comments, I also got several private messages telling me what a huge mistake I'm making.
Let me clear things up.
The reason Yoda busted me for overtraining was bec... Read more
