Saturday, June 25, 2011      7 comments

Pick yourself up and finish what you started. I saw this phrase on a poster in the Biggest Loser gym watching the Biggest Loser. I wrote this down on a little post-it, and pasted it to my bathroom mirror. At first, having it up there made me... Read more

Notes to myself.

Note number one. Stop being such a critic. I know you feel bad that you didnít do a Wii workout yesterday. But itís ok, you wanted to at minimum do your PT exercises and you did them. Granted, they were scaled way back, since you donít have the ... Read more

Monday, June 20, 2011      3 comments

I am exhausted after a full day. I woke up feeling a little sore and achy, so I've been doing some stretches throughout the day. It's a good kind of sore and achy, because I know it means I've been doing some serious work. It's just different ... Read more

Every weekend, I dread. I know whatís coming, and I have yet learned the skills to fight it off. I have all the tools to learn the skills, I guess I just need more practice to implement them. This weekend, though, Iím full of hope and excite... Read more

Wait, is this, could this be, muscle?

Thursday, June 16, 2011      7 comments

I am such a weakling. Iím not proud of it, but I readily admit it. Years at a desk job and not much activity have really done me no good. I will take the blame, though, I made bad choices and ended up as a real, true weakling. But lately, Iíve... Read more

After yesterday, Iím finally feeling like I can do this again. I think I lost sight of that somewhere. Although I put on a brave face and talked the talk, I was really just trying to convince myself that I could be successful. I often find myse... Read more

Weekends are killer for me. Ok, thatís not exactly precise enough. Itís not just weekends, itís any time spent at home. I donít know what it is, but when Iím at home, I binge more often, I skip exercises, I feel overall icky and unhealthy, and ... Read more

I feel so big right now. And I donít necessarily mean fat, although I do feel extra chunky today. I look it as well. Yes, I really do, I swear itís not me being extra judgmental; my clothes are stretched to the max. Anyway, Iím feeling extra f... Read more

Iíve been struggling, and I found myself slacking on Spark and putting all of my energy into work, planning a Ďstaycationí, and trying to cut our grocery budget every which way. I got overwhelmed, taking on so much at once, and trying to fix ev... Read more
