Itís odd to think that when I sat down to create my goals this morning, I wrote down ďlose 10 poundsĒ. But when I actually did the math, I need to lose 18 pounds to hit my goal weight. Itís so strange to me how we lie to ourselves. And we do ... Read more

Blatant Bragging

Tuesday, April 30, 2013      8 comments

Iím going to brag here for a minute because I donít have anywhere else to do this. Not only that, I fear that by bragging about my accomplishments over the last couple days will pale in comparison to others. So instead of feeling good about mys... Read more

Thereís a great feeling to getting sleep. It is amazing. If you donít get enough, I highly recommend figuring out ways to get it. I actually got some quality sleep this weekend, and I feel like itís making all the difference in my attitude today... Read more

3500 calories = 1 pound

Saturday, March 09, 2013      3 comments

So in other words ... my 250-ish calories burned per workout ain't gonna cut it. Plus, since I'm not tracking my specific intake, I have no idea about the progress I'm making. However, it does somehow inspire me to want to push myself just a l... Read more

Monday, March 04, 2013      2 comments

Yep Ė seriously. Itís not that I donít think Iím attractive at the moment; itís that I know I could be better. The fact that my birthday is looming around the corner isnít helping my attitude about said ďlostĒ sexy. My challenges are: ... Read more

Thursday, February 28, 2013      2 comments

I didnít spend as much time there I would have liked. The husband was having ankle issues and we also got a slightly later start than I wanted. But I was there. I got in a little over 15 minutes, but they were QUALITY minutes. And that's what... Read more

I failed to complete my goal by 54 points. That's basically 2 days of logging in and doing a few random tasks without even really trying. That's downright embarrassing. Worse, I've started off this year on a sour note. Read more
