The Extra Weight Isn't My Problem
You know, even though I struggle with my weight it is not the hardest fight I'm in. I don't like the weight I'm at. I get stuck on a plateau, I feel guilty when I eat badly or skip the gym, and I get frustrated when the scale goes up.
But t... Read more
Episode I: The Revenge of Yoda
So, training with Yoda wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
It was worse.
I did not bring any broccoli bouquets or strawberries. I didn't make him cookies. I did, however, show up early.
The trainer's area is upstai... Read more
Mocking Yoda Was Probably a Bad Idea
I got to the gym later than usual yesterday. My mom was there (yes, my mom and I go to the same gym - also, Yoda is her trainer too since I talked him up so much to her) and I sat and talked to her for a few minutes. Yoda was there training some... Read more
I'm not going to lie, the past few years have made me a different person.
I used to be fun. I used to have tons of friends and go out all the time. I used to do insanely fun thing. Every Friday I was out dancing. I dated a lot. I was happy ... Read more
Putting InnerFatGirl On Notice
I went to the gym yesterday.
I went to the gym, and I actually did my workout.
I went to the gym, did my workout, and didn't cut corners or end early or spend my workout time visiting.
Take that, InnerFatGirl!
In fact, June ... Read more
Not Happy, Yoda Is
Sometimes I say something and wish that I could take it back. Last night at my training session with Yoda, I did just that.
I had gotten off work late and was rushing to get to the gym. I was about 10 minutes late to my session. I had texte... Read more
Meanwhile, Back At the Gym....
I don't train with Yoda until tonight, but last night guess who I saw at the gym.
When I saw him, I immediately realized why I had avoided the gym. I felt guilty about the way I'd been eating and I knew that I could never lie to him about i... Read more
Taking Control of My Out-of-Control World
Yup. I went MIA.
Don't worry, all is well. My test results came back all good. Unfortunately the stress of them got to me and I kind of pulled away from everything for a few weeks.
I meet with Yoda tomorrow and I'm pretty sure he's go... Read more
Yeah. I Totally Rocked This Week.
Yesterday I met with Yoda. He looked over my food/workout diary and was quite impressed although he says that maybe I shouldn't have Subway so much.
So, we moved on to lifting weights and I was doing well when he started to tea... Read more
Bad Day? I'm Throwing a Smile At Mine.
This is going to be the vaguest blog I've ever written.
The last few days have been awful, but yesterday was the worst. To make a long story short (and yes, vague because I don't want to really get into it) I'm having to see a doctor and t... Read more
Yoda Is My Favorite
I told Yoda that several of you wouldn't mind having a clone of him.
He has people working on it.

Injured But Still Being Awesome!
I took yesterday off from the gym.
I despise days off. I feel like I'm slacking. I feel like I have energy to burn. And I feel like I'm falling behind on my goals.
Of course, I know that I'm not falling behind - I'm just taking care o... Read more
Star Crossed Workout
I didn't make it to the gym yesterday morning, so I went at lunch and walked on the treadmill for an hour. I felt like I needed it. Trying to figure out what to eat was stressing me so badly that I needed an outlet.
Then last night was Zumb... Read more
Blame It On the Zu-Zu-Zu-Zu-Zu-Zumba Class
Wow. Yoda's upset with me in a -you're-sabotaging-your-own-go
als sort of way.
I went to training even though my shoulder was still hurting. I texted him before and he knew about it. I thought we'd go easy on me.
Of course, I though... Read more
Injuries and Violations Make Me an Unhappy Gal
At Zumba last night I went to move my arms and pain shot up into my shoulder. I was confused. I hadn't done anything to it. It didn't hurt at all the whole day. So I shrugged it off and kept moving.
The pain didn't stop.
I still did th... Read more
