Heading Off to Zumba!
I finally found an instructor that I love but unfortunately I found him too late! He's leaving Hawaii for California in about 2 weeks.
I've been attending his classes for about a month now, just once a week. Recently I've been able to go... Read more
I had a long blog post drafted here.
But all I kept reading over and over was "It's hard."
I didn't like all that negativity
Yes - It's hard:
Being at my heaviest weight
Missing my Mom since she passed
Trying to sc... Read more
Day 226: Just a Quick Review
Wow. I can't believe it's been about 6 months since I've posted.
These 6 months have been the toughest months of my life.
On September 7, 2015, my mom was found in her apartment. She had passed away.
She was young and her death ... Read more
Day 45: What am I worth?
Yesterday was my second therapy appointment.
I'm really glad I started going. I almost cancelled, thinking I didn't need to go anymore because I started feeling better (yes, after one appointment. *insert eye-roll here*)
But I know th... Read more
Day 42: Life Updates
Ok... I had this long post written up but it was all scattered so I decided to start again. Not that you needed to know any of that but well, now you do!
On Friday 7/24, we celebrated 5 years of marriage! We spent ... Read more
Day 35: Today is the Day!
Today is my first appointment with my therapist.
I'm so nervous.
If I think about it long enough I become so overwhelmed I'm on the verge of tears.
I googled my therapist.
And that just made it worse. ... Read more
Day 31: Tired but chugging along
This past week has been a bit difficult for me.
Not in anything particular, but I don't think I've completely pulled out of my "funk", whether that was just a bad mood or a depressive (is that a word?) episode - I don't know, I just know th... Read more
Day 23: I Made My Therapy Appointment
Today I made an appointment to see a therapist.
Lately I've been feeling very overwhelmed, stressed, and anxious. For the past week or so I haven't been able to fully breathe. I never really noticed my breathing until I notice that I'm hol... Read more
Day 9: Reflecting on a Gain
Yes, today during my "official" weigh in, I had a gain.
(I call it "official" because it's only official to me. I weigh in every Wednesday morning and record my weight. I may jump on the scale during the week but those... Read more
Day 4: In Retrospect
Yesterday I went for a walk to a local park/playground near our house.
When I checked the map on my phone, I saw it would be a 2.6 mile walk, which isn't bad. I used to run about 2 miles 3x a week a few months ago (but stopped due to knee/... Read more
Day 2: Untitled
Seems like it's the same song playing over and over in my life.
Yet again, I find myself back at square one. This time with a 10lb gain.
I'm repeating things to myself that I've said over and over before.
I feel like I'm in a m... Read more
DOMS & Water Retention
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Saturday I was able to return to Body Pump, my favorite fitness class ever.
I kept my weights at what I thought was a "light" amount but ended up still having really sore muscles... Read more
Fueled by Results!
This morning I hopped on the scale (yes, I weigh myself every day) and clocked in at 219.4 - down almost 3 pounds since Monday.
I know that's not pure fat loss but it was a nice surprise since my official weigh in on Mon... Read more
Starting over again is rough. This isn't my first round with SP. When I joined back in 2006 (yikes! almost 10 years ago!) I saw great results.
The program was different then. I think it's similar to how SparkCoach is set up now, with you... Read more
Reflecting On Last Week
Last week was a really fun week for me. Once a month at work, we have a themed dress up coffee break. Yes, we also have coffee breaks once a day, from 9:30am - 10am. Our cafe (I work at an art museum) sets out coffee and tea... Read more
