Not Burning Enough
Day 3 of working out was very successful, I even ran for a little bit! I was able to get a bit more sleep last night which is why I’m feeling pretty good this morning, but the next few days are going to be killer. I have my musical theatre class... Read more
Good grief it was hard to get up this morning, but I did it! I did 30 minutes on the treadmill, got a good sweat going and was able to get everything done that I needed to. I’m starting to feel under the weather, so I don’... Read more
Back to The Drawing Board
I have decided that I will work out every day for the next 5 days (starting off small to give myself a chance to work up to it), whether I'm extremely exhausted or not. Because of rehearsals, I'll have to work out in the morning before work whic... Read more

I Survived My Own Self Sabotage: My First 5k ALONE!
The mind is a powerful thing, and it almost caused me to not show up to my first 5k which is something I had been excited about for a LONG time. The self sabotage started last night and worked on me up until this morning right as I was getting d... Read more
Weigh Day - Week 103
1lb lower than last weeks weigh in and I am proud of that. It's not perfect, but it's not horrible. This week was another hard week, but of course, that's not an excuse. I have no doubt I'll get back to my maintenance range, but right now it's g... Read more
15lbs in 33 Days?
Yeah, that sounds crazy, even for me. My goal to lose 15lbs by my 2 Year Weight Loss Anniversary in April just isn’t going to happen and I know that. Life has been tough and has certainly gotten in the way of my attempts at trying to get the res... Read more
Not A Day Goes By
In my musical theatre class, we’re studying Stephen Sondheim who is an absolute genius and one of my absolute favorite composers. The song that my teachers gave me is “Not A Day Goes By” from the musical Merrily We Roll Along. The lyrics hit hom... Read more
It Snuck Up On Me!
…my 5k that is. It’s this weekend. THIS. WEEKEND. Not only have I not “trained” for it but I’ve been eating terribly the last 2 months. I don’t expect to run the entire thing, but I will try to and will walk when my body tells me to.
All y... Read more
Nothing Can Stop Me Now

Weigh Day - Week 102
I'm not proud of this weeks weigh in, but then again, it's not like I don't know how it happened. I binged and overate. I cried and stressed. I did about 16 minutes of cardio and wasn't consistent with my water intake. I have no excuses, these a... Read more
