Bike & Build (AKA: My fail proof way of getting fit)
I was just recently accepted into a program called Bike & Build. So this summer I will be biking across the country (Charleston, South Carolina to Santa Cruz, CA) and stopping along the way to build houses. Basically, this means that for two and... Read more
On Thursday I injured my ankle which means that I won't be able to do my normal cardio routine.
How it happened was actually really stupid. Since I am a 7 year old at heart, I couldn't help but dance around like an idiot when I walked into a m... Read more
I weighed myself this morning to find that I have lost 10 pounds so far! This was actually a bit surprising because, although I did eat really well this week, I just didn't have the time to workout save a few walks with my dog. I also don't real... Read more
I've really been getting back on top of everything. I'm super busy with school but I've been making it a priority to just eat well and fit it some exercise here and there when I have the time. It's kicking my butt, but I'm almost back up to an A... Read more
Im reading this book, "Made to Crave" and I came upon this awesome quote.
"Remember those 'scripts' I mentioned?... The excuses? The rationalizations? The 'I'll do better tomorrow' escape clause? We have to rewrite those by getting into the... Read more
One More Time
I slipped up. We've all done it. But I have a secret weapon. Prayer.
I'm reading the book "Make to Crave" and it's an excellent motivator. It's not your normal here-follow-this-plan book. It focuses on the want to when it comes to eating h... Read more
Week 7: Gotta get back up
So I haven't been doing very well. After camp, I kind of gave up. I was getting ready for school (which started this week) and getting as much sleep as possible because I knew I wouldn't be getting much once I started school. And, well, time got... Read more
Week 5: I knew this would happen
This past week I was a counselor for the Jr. High students at my church. Going in, I knew the food wouldn't be the most healthy and there would be plenty of junk food the girls in my cabin would bring. So I ended up gaining all the weight I lost... Read more
Week 3: Rewards
I didn't post this yesterday for two reasons. One, my computer is not working properly and, two, it was a busy day. Nonetheless, it was a happy day.
I lost two more pounds this week! Creating a grand total of 5.5lbs lost in two weeks. Not ... Read more
Great, GREAT Day!
Today has been absolutely wonderful! And it's only 2:00. So every Thursay and Friday before I volunteer at the hospital, I go to the gym because it's right across the street and my house is a bit to far to drive just to go to the gym. So I start... Read more
More than skin deep
I know for many people, the problems that come with being overweight are more than just the extra fat. It's emotional problems, self-confidence, and sometimes just complete self-hatred. And when they do lose the weight not much changes unless th... Read more
The Math of it all
Something that's different about losing weight this time is that I understand the math behind it. Until this time, I never realized that 1lb=3500 calories. And the whole BMR/Calorie deficit thing was a mystery as well. I don't know how I missed ... Read more
Week 2: Motivation
I just weighed myself and I lost 3.5 pounds this week! I think that's the most I've ever lost in a week compared to any other time I've tried to lose weight. If I keep this up, I'll lose way more than 30lbs in 30 weeks (although I don't expect t... Read more
Workout Video Programs
I really love the idea of a 30-90 day video program. I think it could be a great way to jump start a fitness schedule. Plus, I've seen some great before and after pictures online. But I really like how most of them are focused more on getting fi... Read more
