Gaining; forgiveness
Monday, May 09, 2016      2 comments

You know what feels worse than gaining weight? Gaining weight after you've spent 5 years losing it. That's where I'm at right now. My starting weight in 2009 was 240lbs. In 2015, I made it 158lbs (3pounds from my goal weight). Then I don't know... Read more
Allergies hitting hard
Thursday, March 10, 2016      2 comments

Wow, we went from snowy fields to sneezing fits in less than a week. I've been taking Claritin but my eyes still feel like they are lined with sandpaper. Ugh. Oh well. I'm not going to let that stop me from going out for a run today. I took spec... Read more
Avoiding Temptation & Working out with Hubs
Wednesday, March 09, 2016      2 comments

Typically on Wednesdays, I stop at Dunkin Donuts for a coffee and sandwich for me and my husband on my way back from dropping off our son at daycare. Today I made sure to drink my coffee at home and make a solid breakfast of egg whites. I didn't... Read more

The Great Escape!
Monday, March 07, 2016      1 comments

It was hard but I forced myself to break my chain from the computer at work and escape to the gym. Of course, once I was there it was impossible to leave. I started with TRX suspension to work my muscles. Then I walked on the treadmill for about... Read more
Wishy Washy Weather

Our class facilitator gave us over an hour for lunch yesterday. I was super excited to finally get out of that stuffy training room and outside for my run. It was one of those days when it's warmer when you leave the house than it is at noon. Ne... Read more
Prepping for success
Wednesday, March 02, 2016      2 comments

I'm a planner. That's just what I do. I get this surge of adrenaline when I get my meal planning charts out. Weird, I know. I totally forgot that SparkPeople creates simple meal plans and generates grocery lists for you! I'm totally taking... Read more
Small Victories
Tuesday, March 01, 2016      1 comments

I managed to get myself to bed last night by 8:30. I didn't fall asleep until 9:30 though but that was because hubs came home from this Holocaust event that he had to attend for school. Meeting a survivor was on his Bucket List so he was all amp... Read more
I deserve better than this
Thursday, February 25, 2016      2 comments

I'm so tired. Tossed and turned all night, because of my ungrateful husband. I spent 4 hours helping him with his homework yesterday morning. Everything was going well. But when I went downstairs to the kitchen for lunch his mood had completely ... Read more
I Return to PiYo
Tuesday, February 23, 2016      2 comments

Yay! I went to the gym yesterday for the first time in about 2 weeks. I worked on my PiYo routine since I'm supposed to teach today. It was a little frustrating since I couldn't get as deep in the poses as I'm used to but I know I'll get back to... Read more
Deja Vu
Monday, February 22, 2016      2 comments

I fought so hard to get out of the 170s that I told myself that I would NEVER see that number on the scale again. Well, two years later I'm back there again. My mind is in the same place as when I started my journey in 2009 at 240lbs. It's a bad... Read more
Happy Holidays: Fight to the Finish
Monday, November 30, 2015      3 comments

Wow, I can't believe how long it has been since I've written a blog. I don't want you to think that I've fallen off the wagon. Sure I've had slips, but generally, I've been able to get back on track pretty quickly. Over the last year, I've been ... Read more

Monday, July 20, 2015      1 comments

I told myself that I would get back to basics this month by logging into Sparkpeople more often. Well here we are the middle of July and this is my first entry--first time logging in to Sparkpeople. I've been doing well over all but I've been sl... Read more
Burning Out; Time for a New Approach
Tuesday, April 14, 2015      2 comments

I've been a Beachbody coach since July. I've really enjoyed leading challenge groups and seeing the progress of my challengers, but I have to be honest--I'm getting burned out. Over the last couple of weeks I've noticed an increase of negative ... Read more
Day 1: 21 Day Fix Extreme
Tuesday, April 07, 2015      2 comments

Technically I'm on day 2, but I thought I'd be numerical. This is also my second round of the Extreme Fix. Have you heard of it? It's definitely intense, but I noticed a huge difference after the first round. It's definitely not a sustainable pr... Read more
