That's Not Sweat, It's Your Fat Crying"
I forgot to mention this about my family camp out in yesterday's blog, but it's totally blog worthy. When I first got up to the campsite, most of my family was already there. This included my parents, sister & her family, my brothers and their f... Read more
Camping, Workouts, 5K Training, and Shoes
Last night I left home with every intention of sleeping in the mountains, getting up early, and driving back home in time to be at my 7:00 am 5K training class.
I drove up to the family camp out. I sat around the campfire and... Read more
My Life is Changing, and I am Happier Because of It
Yoda sent me a text today. It seems as though he's really getting into the spirit now. It said:
"get strong, you will"
He's right. In fact, I'm already getting stronger. This week I've done more than I could have possibly done when I s... Read more
A Better Version of Myself
Yesterday I posted how much of a hero my Yoda is. Then I checked my email and I almost cried.
My SparkFriends think that I am a SparkPeople Motivator.
It means the world to me to know that people are interested in what I have to say. ... Read more
My Yoda Is My Hero
I am a RockStar. Also, Yoda says that I'm his hero!
He weighed me in today at our training session and I lost more than 5 pounds this week. I thought that meant he'd go a bit easier on me, but he didn't. Instead he made me do some circuit t... Read more
Self-Esteem Comes Before, Not After
My life is a lot busier now than it was 2 months ago. I got to work, I go home and change, I head to the gym, I cook dinner, I keep the apartment clean, I don't say no to spending time with friends or family, etc. I have a full calendar. I love ... Read more
Awesomeness Does Not Include Excuses
I painted my apartment for most of the day today with the help of my wonderful little brother. When I first planned this, I told myself that this would not be an excuse to not go to the gym. I wouldn't tell myself that all the painting was enoug... Read more
I had a GREAT day today!
I went to my family's house and I didn't eat badly. I made good choices and I stayed on track.
Yoda will be so proud!!... Read more
Feeling Great and Changing My Life!
I did something last night that I never thought I would.
First of all, here is a little bit of background. It's the short version, so hopefully it'll make sense. I come from a large family. My dad has 9 siblings and each of them have severa... Read more
Beauty Is Soul Deep
What’s the definition of beautiful? I could look it up, but that’s not the answer I want. Beauty is controversial. Things that are beautiful to some aren’t beautiful to others. Some people considered beautiful might not be perceived that way by ... Read more
Excuses Are Little Devils On My Shoulders
I had a long talk with my trainer yesterday.
It started off with my weigh-in. I gained a couple of pounds. I could tell that he was confused at this. He sees me in the gym every day. He knows I am not slacking there. So he sat down with me... Read more
My Little Chat With Myself At the Gym
Yesterday I unofficially started my 5K training. The official training with my trainer doesn't start until the 25th, but I figured that if I start training now then I won't look like such an idiot at 7am on the morning of the 25th! I might actua... Read more
I'm Going To Run a 5K, and I'm Going To Be AWESOME Doing It!
It's a beautiful day outside. The sun is shining, a breeze is softly moving through the trees, and the sky is a perfect shade of blue.
Of course I'm stuck inside at work.
I actually found myself wishing that I could go for a walk/jog r... Read more
I'll Be the One Using Up All the Oxygen
My trainer wants me to start training for a 5K.
When he first brought it up, I laughed. I can't even run for 5 minutes currently, at least not without relieving the entire room of the oxygen supply. I have a feeling that everyone at my gym... Read more
So far, the Summer of Me has been great. Yesterday I went with my family plus my mom's parents and here sister & her sister's family to a pool and some natural hot pools. It was a lot of fun. I came home tired and sunburned, though.
Some of... Read more
