Recommitting. That's How I Roll.
I went to the gym today, marched up to Yoda, and told him that I had a horrible weekend filled with pizza, brownies, soda, and lots of other crappy food. You know what he said?
"Yeah. It happens."
Then he told me that I had a decision ... Read more
Turning Bad Into Good
I had a bad weekend. Actually, it wasn't just a bad weekend. It was a massive failure. As you know from my previous blog, it started at 5K training. Things went downhill from there. I haven't eaten this much "bad" food and junk food in months. I... Read more
Today I cried.
Not because I was happy. In fact, I was far from happy. Our 5K training today took us outside for the first time. I hate not running on the treadmill.
I was the slowest in the group. Even the old 70 year old guy was fas... Read more
Work, Gym, Sleep. Repeat.
I'm planning my weekend around my gym schedule.
The second I realized that, I thought to myself "Self? What is up with that?"
You see, normally I'd plan my weekend and then try to fit in some time at the gym where I could. Usually I'd ... Read more
Treadmill Time Flies When You're Having Fun
I met with Yoda today due to an unfortunate incident where my cousin cancelled her training session and he thought it was me, so we were unable to train yesterday. Anyway, after the training session today I ran into a gal that is in our 5K Train... Read more
Why Do This Alone When You Don't Have To?
Some people have been telling me lately that I depend too much on my trainer. I let Yoda tell me what to do. If I want a cheeseburger, I ask him first. If I gain weight, he’s the one I’m afraid to face. If I ever dared to miss a day at the gym, ... Read more
Weight is Just a Number
There's no feeling in the world like the one you get just after working out. There's just something about that achy I-just-pushed-myself-and-it-hu
It's gotten to the point where I look forward to that. Sur... Read more
Busy, Busy, Busy. But Still Doing Well.
Today was busy.
Of course, it was Independence Day so I had barbecues, parades, and other family get-togethers. I was HUGELY disappointed in the parade my city put on. There was NO American Flag. Not one. It was really sad. I was proud of ... Read more
Getting Rid of my Label
So, I got several comments saying that I don't look as heavy as I really am in the roller skating picture I posted yesterday.
First of all, thanks. Secondly, yeah I know how to pose in a picture to hide the fat. Don't we all? Third, I weigh... Read more
Living Life In Happiness
I did it!
I faced my fear, went skating, and was successful at not breaking my leg!
Today was an awesome cardio day. I spent an hour at the gym, a couple of hours... Read more
To Do: Break a Leg. Then Run a 5K.
I received many compliments, acknowledgments, encouraging thoughts, and SparkGoodies yesterday and I loved every single one of them, but one in particular "sparked" my attention.
Yeah, see what I did there???
I hope that ANONSI doesn'... Read more
Banishing FatGirl From My World
First of all, a HUGE thank you to the DONE girls for rewarding my efforts by naming me DONE girl of the day today. It meant the world to me to wake up and have MANY messages of encouragement from you all!
Secondly, Yoda was kind yesterday. ... Read more
Sick Day? Or Another Excuse?
Not sick enough to stay home from work, but I have that stupid cold that you get when the weather changes. I have the sniffly, runny nose and headache and just a slight fever. Plus there's the itchy, watery eyes and the aching mus... Read more
Exercise Is Making Me Taller
Okay, exercise isn't really making me taller. But I did notice that lately I have been "taller". I had to adjust the mirrors in my car and the steering wheel. I feel taller when I look in the mirror and just in general.
At first I was kind ... Read more
Don't Say "See You Later" To Fat. Say GOODBYE!
Sometimes I wonder why it took me so long to become serious about losing weight. I have an excellent excuse for last year - I had a gym membership, but I also had a broken leg so I couldn't have used the gym. But that was only for about 6 months... Read more
