I Can. And I WILL!
Yesterday I posted that I had failed, and I had. But it wasn't because I had a bad day at the gym. It was because I knew I could do something, but I allowed myself to make so many excuses that I psyched myself out. Then instead of doing somethin... Read more
I'm Only Gonna Quit This Once.
Today I failed.
Yesterday I met with my trainer and he gave me a new workout routine to do. I did it with him there, but today when I tried I couldn't do it. I felt like I couldn't move my legs fast enough to stay on the treadmill. Then I g... Read more
Too Slow is Better Than Too Fast
I watched part of The Biggest Loser last night. Honestly, I’m not a big fan of the show. I mean, I’m all for losing weight and TBL has a better successful relationship percentage than The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and all the other relationshi... Read more
I Choose Life, and I Choose Me
I went to the gym very late last night. I go as late as possible when I have to lift weights because I am less self-conscious when there are less people around, and I end up doing a better job and working harder. I don’t mind being the fat girl ... Read more
I know, most of my blogs are about the gym. Well, this one is short and sweet just like my last blog.
I pushed myself harder today. I jogged for double the amount of time that I normally do, and when I was finished I felt great.
I hav... Read more
I had a great day today! I invited my family over for dinner. There was no fighting and no drama. Unfortunately I didn't make it to the gym, but I went every other day this week, so I'm proud!
I love my family and I'm lucky to have them.... Read more
Sometimes a Little Embarrassment Can Make You Feel AWESOME!
I know that I already posted a blog today, but this just couldn't wait.
I had the BEST time at the gym tonight. I normally have an appointment for training on Wednesday, but I also see my trainer at the gym while he's working on weekdays. ... Read more
I Feel Like Shouting "I Already Have a Mother AND a Trainer"
My neighbors have noticed that I'm going to the gym a lot lately. In fact, they wish me luck almost every time I go now. I live in an apartment building, so they usually are out in a shared area as I get home from work, change, and leave for the... Read more
SparkFriends are FANTASTIC!
Today was better than yesterday, although it still wasn't great. Tomorrow will be better, though.
Last night at the gym, I saw something that made me muscles hurt. I wasn't even doing it! The girl who was on the treadmill next to me was run... Read more
Life's Hard - Have a Good Cry and Move On
I had a slight meltdown tonight. It seems that my view on my weight and weight loss is directly connected to my emotional issues and also to my tear ducts.
Don't get me wrong, I feel good about myself. I feel much better than I do before a... Read more
The World Has Been Missing Me
A few blogs I read today made me think about life. I say "no" a lot. In the past, people have wanted me to go out. They've asked me to dinner, to lunch, to go to parties, to see a movie, etc. I always decline politely or make some lame excuse be... Read more
Time Flies When You're Thinking Up Weight Loss Anthems
I have a new favorite thing to do while working out.
It started out as watching tv while on the treadmill or the elliptical, but then I realized that I was paying more attention to what I was watching and I'd end up slowing down. Then it b... Read more
If She Can Do It, So Can I!
Yesterday I went to the gym and pushed myself. I slightly increased the speed of the treadmill from what I normally do and I felt really good about it. Just when I was about to hit my one hour daily goal, I saw something that has changed my thou... Read more
If There Were a Magic Weight Loss Pill
I've always said that if there were some sort of magic pill I could take to immediately make myself jump to a healthy weight, with a rockin' body and strong muscles I would take it in a second. Sometimes eating a healthy diet and working out at ... Read more
Facing the Good and the Bad
JennSwims posted a blog yesterday that I loved. She challenged readers to come up with 10 things they disliked and 10 things they liked about themselves. I think it's a wonderful idea and so here goes!
