One month in and the flu

Wednesday, February 03, 2016      2 comments

I had this whole thing typed and I lost it. I hate it when that happens. So I am one month in (plus one day) to this round and as of the one monthiversary yesterday I was down 10 lbs. That is pretty awesome for me. I didn't hit my normal 3 ... Read more

One week in

Monday, January 11, 2016      5 comments

On my weekly Saturday weigh in, I was down 5.3 from the week before. I am very happy with that progress. I know its water weight and I won't see numbers like that every week, but that first big loss always helps with the motivation going into we... Read more

3 days in, back to work

Monday, January 04, 2016      3 comments

I am back to work today - luckily with no students. It's hard to get my head back in the game after 2 weeks off. I have a list of stuff I should do, but since none of it is on a NEED to do basis I am having trouble getting motivated to do it. ... Read more

Goodbye 2015, hello 2016!

Thursday, December 31, 2015      3 comments

Well, the end of another year. 2015 was overall a great year. In life anyway. I am in the same place I was on the scale as I was last year, which I guess COULD be considered a good thing. It could definitely be worse. In life the year was good. ... Read more

End of March

Monday, March 30, 2015      3 comments

March was an okay month. Had some challenges, but came through victorious. I only lost 2 lbs for the entire month, but I did go down a belt notch this month so I'm sure I'm doing something right. I've lost 16.8 total since January. Spring b... Read more

Made it through spring break!

Monday, March 16, 2015      1 comments

Spring break was, as always, a blast. We had gorgeous weather this year which is like the first time EVER, and everyone was on the mend from being sick instead of getting colds while we were there. When I left home on Saturday morning I was... Read more

A big weekend!

Monday, February 09, 2015      4 comments

I hit my first goal! I am under 200 lbs AND I've lost over 10 lbs total. The reward I gave myself was some new jewelry - in the form of PIERCINGS! I dyed my hair blue and green this weekend and then decided it was time to finally get my nos... Read more

I've never watched the show, but I have close friends that do. I think these are really important lessons regardless, and things I've been trying to implement in my own training.

Overall my weekend went pretty well. Friday evening my friend Theresa and I went to go see Mortdecai at the Cinedine theater here. I ended up eating super light all day (521 calories before heading out) and then at dinner I had a turkey wra... Read more

I'm so happy that something has finally clicked in my brain to make this journey successful this time around. It feels so good to be in the right mindset. This week was interesting. I only lost .5 at the beginning of the week, which was due... Read more

Things are coming together! I've lost almost 7 lbs since the beginning of the year. I'm still feeling really strong and determined, which has normally waned by now. I am using a tighter notch on my belt! Food: Food is GOOD. I mean it taste... Read more

The weirdest thing...

Tuesday, January 13, 2015      3 comments

So the weirdest thing happened to me today. Yesterday afternoon, at our staff meeting, my ankle started KILLING me. It had been uncomfortable lately because of all of my walking, and it's still not healed from spraining it, and yesterday it... Read more
