The Immutable Laws of Fat: Facts of Weight Loss. 2/7
So today I shared a true fact of weight loss with a friend, and she looked at me like I was a weight loss messiah, a SuperJenn, a veritable Jenn Craig with a different last name, so I wanted to share the factoid with you.
Here we go, it's a... Read more
My Butt Hurts & Other Good Things. 1/7
My butt is extremely displeased with me right now. Last night, in yoga, the instructor said "find your sit bones and root down into them." I think I heard a chortle from my sit bones when she said that. Or was it a scream? In reality, it was ... Read more
What's The Freaking Problem?
Burn more calories than you eat. Eat less calories than you burn. Calories In - Calories Out = Weight Loss/Weight Gain. There are lots of ways to say it, one way to do it. Eat less than your body requires. Period. The End.
So simple... Read more
I haven't lost a pound in six weeks. Or more accurately, I have lost 4 pounds, but it was because I bounced from 265 to 269 and down again.
I love yoga. I love the way I feel when I do yoga. I would do it every single day if I could mak... Read more
Body Hate & Pfive Things I Like About My Container--With Photos
It's really easy to hate on your body, but that's not good for your mind or your body. I am as guilty as the next person. I could write 100,000 words on all the ways I hate my body, or more accurately, what I have done to my body. My body is ... Read more
Things I Have Learned This Year With Photos
If a blog could have a soundtrack, this one would be read to Right Said Fred's song I'm Too Sexy.
A small sampling of the things I've learned in 2011:
1. I can make salsa, using tomatoes from my own garden.
Treating Me Like a Friend
Losing tonnage isn't just about taking off pounds. It's nice to shed fat rolls and look all major hotness in a swimsuit, I get that, but I would say it's a little bit about the pounds and a whole lot of working on what's between your ears. Te... Read more
Take Your Motivation Where You Can Get It
This is my nephew, Eli.
He was born Monday. I refer to him as "The Cute Factory" for obvious reasons. 8 months ago his mother was afraid to give me her good news, feari... Read more
I've Lost My Mind and You're Invited... It's Pfun!
I created a spark team today and I'm totally jazzed about it. Giddy and recharged and feeling full of weight loss energy. Seriously, I am. I'm so stoked that I'm not even mad at myself for only having 450 calories left for the day at 2:30 in ... Read more
I'd like to personally thank you for having a "women's department." Please note that I'm using this term very loosely. You see, your "women's department" is depressing and makes me feel like the old fat Jenn I used to be. In... Read more
It's All About The Sweat... and Yoga... and 1/4 Marathons...
So I bought an outrageously expensive ($65) yoga mat because I was afraid I was going to injure myself doing yoga. Imagine a oiled up fat girl trying to do yoga on a Slip N Slide, and that's what it was like. How was I supposed to balance on on... Read more
For Just a Minute, I Felt Like Wonder Woman
It's true. For a minute there, I felt like Wonder Woman. I didn't feel like that weird, badly dressed new Wonder Woman that lasted for like 2 episodes, I felt like the grande dame of all Wonder Women, Lynda Carter. The one with the swanky gol... Read more
Depression, TMI, Feeling Like a Failure, Keeping Moving and Music Therapy
So I'm struggling.
My new fancy yoga mat, my lemony gifts to myself and all the wishing in the world can't change that.
Random FYI: I will probably be talking to the girl at the gym I wrote about last week. I will do it on my term... Read more
Self-Care, Pics, Presents, Hair, Crap Day and Rambling.
I have a tendency to let my hair and caterpillars (eyebrows) go. The man hair on the chin bugs the crap out of me, so I stay right on top of that, and the legs too, since I'm in the pool a lot. But the hair, well, the hair totally gets hosed i... Read more
There Is a Big Fat Chick at the Gym
There is a woman at the gym that most people probably notice, but not for good reasons. No, she isn't the supermodel that I wrote about a few months ago, the one who was so gorgeous that it was hard not to stare. In fact, aside from being tall... Read more
