Stamping my Foot!
I remembered today why I both love and loathe tracking. Ok, so with tracking I actually feel like I'm accomplishing something because I'm able to keep better track on what's going on with myself and see where i'm at in regards to stress and food... Read more
A Change in mindset
So, I did it. I went and got a body composition test done. Let me tell you, that was a kick in the gut. Currently, I am at 52.7% body fat. ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Ook. Actually, to be honest, I'm not that surprised, it is about where it was when I g... Read more
I have come to make a realization today. One that I had never put together before, something that I never wanted to acknowledge. I have allowed eating disorders, in one form or another, control my life for the past 12 years. It has not just been... Read more
Being Truthful. With myself
So, several months back, a very kind person gave me the recommendation that I may need to actually go talk to someone, a professional about things that are going on and how I cope. Family has told me that maybe I need to actually reach out to ov... Read more
The Walk, Frustrations, and putting myself first
So, this past weekend was an interesting one. It was filled with stress and it was filled with a lot of feelings of not doing well enough even if I have been doing as well as I could. I also think that I have been putting up some serious road b... Read more
I hate this....
I really hate continuing to come back saying, yep, slid off the wagon again and into a huge pile of foods and drinks that I knew I shouldn't be consuming but I did it anyway. I really need to look into the whole idea of what self sabotage is and... Read more
A week of changes :)
So for this last week and a half or so, I definitely went off of the routine that was working very well for me. Family came into town and so four days in a row I saw them which meant that the time I would have normally been working out was spent... Read more
Time to switch out those habits!
So, I have found it fascinating that those old adages about habits and how long it takes to form one, or to break one are really true. I am well into week two of being truly committed to this and it's amazing. I know that I'm still in the honeym... Read more
Frustrations and Excitements :)
So last night, I ended up working much later than I expected to at work, seriously have a long to do list in front of me, (but being commission, that is definitely a good thing when I'm busy), anyways, I ended up changing my original work out pl... Read more
Oooh Feel those Gym Class Burns
So, I joined the gym and I am loving it. I have also realized that I need that atmosphere where there are classes, etc to get my happy butt motivated! A lot of people say, well, if you have a gym at your apartment, why don't you just use it? The... Read more
Hey look, Everything old is new again!
So, once again I had continued the cycle of being motivated and then something getting in the way. This time, it was picking up crazy hours at work and being incredibly busy and allowing my clients' needs and wants to get ahead of what I needed ... Read more
Day 4 and It's still awesome
Ok! So i have hit that day 4 threshold, really don't know if it's a threshold or not, but this is the longest I think I have ever gone with religiously exercising and tracking my food so it's a threshold for me! This weekend I am still working ... Read more
3rd day towards success
Ok, so today is the 3rd consistent day of tracking and exercising! Yay me! :) it really does help to get into a routine and to also plan the meals ahead of time. As much as people, myself included, would say, oh it's too difficult, or oh, it sti... Read more
Ok, so during my workout today, (woot 2nd day in a row!!! I'm on a roll I tell you), I listen to this song again, now I don't know if it was because i was exhausted at this point (45 minutes on the elliptical at a 6 click incline and trying to m... Read more
Let's get real about this...
So, quite frankly, I have been half assing it for awhile now. I mean, I know I need to get healthy, I know I need to be working out, and I certainly can't be ready for this 60 mile walk if, you know, I don't actually walk! in regards to tracking... Read more
