What's so great about me
Yesterday in therapy my dr. pointed out something that I'm super aware of, that I beat myself up and don't give myself credit for anything. I've known that for a long time, and knowing it hasn't proved helpful in changing it. I was just sitting ... Read more
Feeling outta control in more ways than one
Seems like the harder I try to stick to an eating plan lately the worse I do. The more I count calories the faster I go over. I haven't worked out in over a week, maybe 2 now. The first 5 days were due to being sick. Now it's just due to excuses... Read more
Feeling better today - talking about Fastbreak goals
I'm feeling a little more level headed and normal today. I woke up so tired and just could not open my eyes. It reminded me why I would like to give up the sugar/junk food habit. Those foods always leave me feeling so lethargic the next morning.... Read more
Let me just get this out, then I will move on
I have made many poor food choices the last few days. From buying a package of chips ahoy this weekend, to buying 2 donuts this morning. I know that food in and of itself is not bad, but the reasons I ate were. I ate because I was frustrated, sa... Read more
My Kick Ass workout!
OMG, I had the best workout today in the past 6 months. It was awesome.
I used to do the 30 Day Shred (Jillian Michaels) and love how she sets her circuits up to keep your heart rate up while strength training. My current schedule doesn't ... Read more
Fake it till you make it
I AM healthy, I AM an athlete and the last couple days were not the 'norm'.
I won't dwell because that never helps anything, but I will say that the last few days I enjoyed some food tremendously and other food I ate out of emotion.

stress eating today
I know I'm stress eating, but I can't seem to stop it. I just can't seem to clear my head of all this stuff. I'm worried about my toddlers today cause they're going on a field trip. I'm worried about a funeral I'm going to tomorrow - my mom migh... Read more
Feeling good & doing good
Fathers day went well. I had a couple indulgences, but not too much. Spent most of the day in the pool with the kids which was nice. It was a little hard wearing a bathing suit in front of the family. I'm sure none of them really cares how much ... Read more
Feeling a little down today
I'm not sure if it's PMS, which is highly likely, but I'm just in a funk today. It probably isn't helping that I'm really frustrated right now about my kids eating. I am planning on talking to my DH about it, but just haven't been able to make t... Read more
My name is crystal, and I am an addict
Wow. I forgot how hard it was to stop drinking coffee. The past three days have been totally dominated by my desire to have coffee and the inner argument between my brain and my body. I know how bad coffee makes me feel (tired, irritable) and th... Read more
Feeling great. . . so glad to be eating better
I did really well this weekend. I stuck to my goals. I tracked all my food this weekend and drank my green tea. I didn't end up needing as much as I planned. For some reason my caffeine withdrawal wasn't that bad this time. It's still early thou... Read more
Never give up starting over
I'm glad that I'm writing this, next time I fall off th wagon I will read it and feel better. I'm not going to beat myself up for slipping up in my eating and exercise. I've been feeling so guilty the last few months for not sticking to my new l... Read more
Starting at Day 1
I have been off the wagon big time - eating really poorly and not working out. My energy level and mood have been in the crappers, and that bothers me more than the weight gain. Just a few months ago I had so much energy and such a positive outl... Read more
Having a really good week.
This week started off great, lost 4 lbs! I was a little suprised that I lost weight, and lost that much because I had a couple rough days last week. Seeing that loss really gave me a boost of confidence and made me really want to stick to my goa... Read more
Last week I felt aweful, I just couldn't get it together. I was working out, but was eating pretty bad. I came up with a menu for this week that I believe will help. Part of my problem the last couple weeks was that I was starting my day with a ... Read more
