Friday, June 10, 2011      3 comments

So these progress photos are probably some of the best I've seen since I've begun my journey, they were taken from the start of Turbo Fire's Inferno program, to about a week later... If you're a reader of my blog, you'll remember that I couldn't... Read more

Inferno Abandoned ... ):

Monday, June 06, 2011      1 comments

Well, unfortunately as the title reads, after 3 days of following the Inferno Program I've had to stop. I thought I could do the 5 days but it has you eating only 1200 calories a day which i haven't done in SO long that I've been absolutely rave... Read more

Sugar Free in June - Day 1

Thursday, June 02, 2011      1 comments

So far so good! I spent the entire day at work clearing plates with succulent looking brownies, pastries, there were two trays of delicious chef made cake donuts, and lots of other high fat, high sugar items that I usually scarf down a MINIMUM o... Read more

I am a food sneaker.

Wednesday, June 01, 2011      0 comments

Following a recent message board thread on the boards titled "food sneaker", it really got me to thinking.... all these people sound like me. They're posting the same feelings, the same thoughts that go through my head when I sabotage my diet by... Read more

So busy, plus the results of the Biggest Loser Spring challenge!

Friday, May 27, 2011      0 comments

I've been so incredibly busy these last few weeks, but even though I saw no weight loss myself, my wonderful Purple Team pulled off FIRST PLACE! We were the biggest losers with close to 2.75% of our original weight lost! Yes I was a little bit d... Read more

Phase 1 Results for P90X

Monday, May 23, 2011      2 comments

So it's been a full month since I restarted P90X from the beginning with the classic rotation and I'm feeling wonderful. I haven't been concentrating so much on the ab routines because I've been searching for a better workout than Ab Ripper (I c... Read more

New Challenges

Monday, May 09, 2011      1 comments

So I've been somewhat MIA from Spark in the past couple of weeks, simply because I took a wonderful vacation to Puerto Plata and came home and jumped right into my new Co-op work term (for those of you who don't know what coop is, it's like a pa... Read more

Starting Fresh

Saturday, April 30, 2011      2 comments

It's been a pretty hard road, and the past month I've had a lot of slip-ups. I haven't been dedicated, and I've been really indulging, especially with my vacation to Puerto Plata in the DR. That's why I've opted to start back at Phase 1 of... Read more

Quick Progress Blog + Photos

Sunday, April 10, 2011      2 comments

So I've been pretty busy these days, not making it onto Spark as often as I'd like. I've got 5 more official days until I'm half done school and my first year is over! As much of a woohoo moment THAT is, I've still got 4 major projects to comple... Read more

It's time like these that make you realize how far you've come.

Monday, April 04, 2011      6 comments

As per the blog title, it's been a while. No, not a while since I've worked out (although after an excruciating 9 days off, I'm jumping back into P90X after having the horrible flu going around) or done anything else since I've been sick... but ... Read more

P90X Phase 2 Begun!

Sunday, March 27, 2011      3 comments

I've decided to switch from Lean rotation to doubles... I'm not seeing the results I'd like in terms of weight loss (I've come to the conclusion that it's from not doing enough cardio, doubles fixes this up). I've only lost 1 lb in the past mont... Read more

P90X Phase 1 Complete! + Progress Photos

Tuesday, March 22, 2011      7 comments

Wow. I mean, just WOW. Only a month ago or so I started P90X and I've only lost 1 lb total (started with a 5 lb gain, from muscle I'm sure, then now down 1 lb from my starting weight) but after comparing photos of my start date to the end of pha... Read more

Today, I turned heads.

Tuesday, March 22, 2011      3 comments

I have never felt as though I've had a toned body, and especially in the case of my legs. I never liked my legs. EVER. They have no muscle tone and are where I carry the majority of my weight. HOWEVER. Since starting P90X, I have noticed a ... Read more
