Smile Like You Mean It!

Thursday, November 10, 2011      9 comments

I can barely type today. My arms are so sore from weights yesterday that moving them makes me cringe! I guess that's a good thing, but it's also a bit annoying. I have a new favorite thing to do at the gym. It's not cardio and it's not weig... Read more

Thursday, November 03, 2011      17 comments

Yeah. Guess who had to do the stair climbing machine yesterday? Me. Guess who said "Well, if you hadn't had cheese fries, maybe you wouldn't have to work so hard"? Yoda. Yoda wins. Always. He made me do the stair climbe... Read more

Wednesday, November 02, 2011      9 comments

Today is Training With Yoda Day and he and I are going to have some words. You see, Yoda no longer terrifies me. When I first started going to the gym I remember sitting outside in my car, afraid of letting another person see how much I wei... Read more

The Winter of Me

Monday, October 31, 2011      7 comments

As some of you might remember, at the beginning of this past summer I declared this the Summer of Me. I was going to put myself first and do what I wanted/needed to do and stop taking on so many things just because I'm the dependable one. In add... Read more

Easy As 1-2-3!

Friday, October 28, 2011      10 comments

One of the issues I've been struggling with lately is motivation. Motivation seems to be everything, no matter what you're doing. If you're at work with no motivation, you get nothing done. If you have no motivation to go to the gym, then you're... Read more

Tuesday, October 25, 2011      9 comments

I haven't been to the gym since Thursday and my trainer is okay with it. Yep. You heard me. Yoda is okay with it. You see, Yoda was sick last week but he had a lot to get done. So due to my being involved with MonaVie as well as s... Read more

I am Not My Weight or the Size of Clothes I Wear

Friday, October 21, 2011      12 comments

There are a lot of things I'm afraid of, more than I ever thought possible. I think that the fear boils down to my weight. Heights - Wherever I'm standing, I'm too heavy and could bring down the platform/roof/whatever I'm standing on down. ... Read more

When I Think I Can't Do It, I Remember That I Can

Thursday, October 20, 2011      6 comments

Working out has been tough for me lately. I had a motivation problem for a bit but thanks to Yoda, I was still expected to be at the gym. Last week at training, Yoda made me run at a 3.0 incline and 4.8 speed for 5 minutes straight. I hate ... Read more

Yes. That's me. I'm excited about MonaVie. The more I use the product and the more I see results, the more I love it. A few of you asked me about the product, so here you go! (Just as an FYI in the spirit of full disclosure, yes I am a distribut... Read more

It's MY Life.

Thursday, October 06, 2011      8 comments

So, I had a LONG talk with Yoda after he put me through weight training Hades yesterday. First, the training. Yoda was not kind. He knows I've been slacking and he's making me push myself harder because of it. He made me run uphill at a 3.... Read more

Running = Freedom

Thursday, September 29, 2011      13 comments

I don't run to blow off steam. I don't run because I'm angry or because I'm sad. I don't run because some idiot cut me off without using his blinker. I don't run because work sucks or family is pulling me in different directions. I don't run bec... Read more

Earning It Isn't Easy

Tuesday, September 27, 2011      8 comments

Yoda sent me the best text the other day. I blogged about how unmotivated I was and how I feel like I am having trouble getting my FatGirlBehind to the gym. Suddenly it was time to go to the gym and I didn't want to go. So of course I had to bri... Read more

Dear Diary, Oops. It's been so long that I think I've forgotten how to write a blog around here! I'd like to say that things have been so awesomely fantastic that I haven't had time to be online, but that isn't really the case. So, here goe... Read more

It Takes Lows to Appreciate the Highs

Thursday, September 01, 2011      20 comments

I feel like it's been forever since I've updated this blog or have even been to SparkPeople. Things have been absolutely crazy here. So here are the highlights! 1. I am officially under 200 pounds. It was hard work and I would see 199 and t... Read more
