My SparkFriends Rock
Sometimes blogs come easy to me. They flow through my fingers as if they wanted to write themselves. On days like today, blogs are hard - especially here where I like to keep it weight-loss related. Yes. I have more than one blog (three, to be e... Read more
Letting My Imagination Fuel My Workout
Some of you may have already figured out that I'm a geek when it comes to certain things.
I play World of Warcraft - not well, but I do. Somehow I always imagine myself in the game, rocking that armor.
If I could have one wish come tru... Read more
Invasion of the Meathead
Who has two thumbs and was a RockStar at the gym last night??
Yup. But I came REALLY close to ditching it completely. You see, I had a fight with an insurance company - a car insurance company. They are idiots. We got changed to an... Read more
The Lonely 5K
Saturday was my 4th 5K.
The only one I was more nervous at was my very first one. This one was scary because I was doing it on my own - no one in my family was running it, no friends running it, and no one there to cheer me on.
I real... Read more
Tired, Flushed, Exhausted, and AWESOME
Yoda is my hero.
Really, he is. About an hour and a half before I was supposed to work out with him, that friend who's car died sent me a text asking if I could possibly pick him up for work - at the exact time that I was supposed to train ... Read more
A Change In Plans Doesn't Have to Kill My Diet
Just as I was leaving work yesterday I got a text from a guy-friend. (Yes, he's the one from a few months ago that things are complicated with.) He and I still talk, but we don't hang out much. He has a lot of things he needs to work through and... Read more
Reflections of Someone I Used To Know
For the record, my iPod was wonderfully retro. I even had workout playlists on there! Listening to them made me realize even more how far I've come. The list I had to run to is WAY too slow for me now. In fact, I can walk to those songs when bef... Read more
My, My.....How Things Have Changed!
My iPhone died today and my first thought was:
"Oh no! How am I going to listen to music while I'm at the gym tonight???"
I wasn't worried about missed phone calls or all the texts I'd miss. I wasn't concerned about facebook or twitter... Read more
I'm a Winner. True fact.
I cried at the gym.
I met with Yoda on Saturday morning. He (of course) weighed me in. I gained a pound and all I could think about were those two ladies and their comments about my weight gain. I tried really hard not to and I ... Read more
Things You Don't Say To People At The Gym For $1,000,000
I've told you before that a lady told me that it looked like I was gaining weight and that it caused me to be moody and pick a fight with Yoda.
Well, another lady said the same thing today.
Seriously? What the heck do these people thin... Read more
GeekYoda In the House!
I didn't go to the gym yesterday.
I don't feel guilty about it though because I walked in the parade. It was hot and tiring and I'm not sure how many miles it was but by the end I was sweaty and felt like I'd just done all my weight workout... Read more
Mornings Are Evil
My eyes popped open this morning as my alarm went off and I groaned. I am definitely not a morning person. I reacted how most non-morning people would.
I rolled over and went back to sleep.
I should have jumped right up, put my gym clo... Read more
Being a Chicken About Seafood
I met with Yoda Saturday morning.
Things felt awkward to me at first - I felt like there was still this unsaid hurt between us. He was professional and I was quiet. Normally we chat about all sorts of things while I'm sweating profusely all... Read more
One Day At a Time
Six am comes way too early in the morning for my liking. Seriously. I think I'd like it to come after ten. Or maybe even three pm. It would make it a lot easier to hit the gym.
Instead, I propped my groggy eyes open and made my way to the g... Read more
Failure Is the New Success
The only way to fail is to quit.
What I've previously labeled as "failure" (cheating on diets, gaining weight, etc.) isn't actually failure because I learn from those things. In fact, this can carry over in to other parts of my life. When a... Read more
