Setting New Goals for 2013
Well, it's the 1st, and of course, that time of year when we find ourselves reflective. I did not make my goal of being in 'Onederland' by the end of the year. In fact, I've gone up slightly. 'Twas the holiday season what got me. Aye, there's th... Read more
Official 6-Month "Before and During" Pics
I thought I would take the occasion of my official 6-Month Weight Loss Anniversary to post my 'before/during' weight loss photos. Keep in mind, the first full body shots were taken when I had lost 17 lbs. already -- 3 months in -- (July 2012). T... Read more
6 Month Update with Pics -- A Week of Milestones
6 months ago, I didn't know where I would find the resolve to address the weight issues that have plagued me for so long. I was not at my highest weight, but I was creeping slowly towards it. I began seeing numbers on the scale that I had not se... Read more
I wanted to pass along a couple of links that have helped me start to get that 'Mojo' back.
A podcast I follow called "Half Size Me" where a woman who's lost 170 lbs. interviews other successful 'losers' and discusses strategies, mindsets ... Read more
Where's my Mojo?
Well, it's been awhile since I blogged. Not sure why. I feel my 'mojo' has been a little off. I'm about 15 lbs. from breaking the 199 barrier, and maybe I've been a little spooked. I've started craving foods that mean me no good. I have kept up ... Read more
20 Week Update
Today marks the 20th straight week of daily workouts for me.
I toggle between feelings of pride and accomplishment, and the desire to do better. I traveled last week for a family funeral, so I just stuck to 10-minute body-weight strength t... Read more
4 Months Complete
Tomorrow makes month 4 of my current weight loss effort. Despite moments of sheer joy immediately yielding to moments of sheer panic, I'd say things are going pretty well.
Week 3 of Paleo went well. I lost 3 lbs. Had my 16-week marker at W... Read more
This Giant Will Fall
This will be a bit of a 'stream of consciousness' post, so you'll forgive me.
I haven't blogged in the last few days, because I haven't had much positive to say. I did another Paleo week, and came out 1 lb. heavier -- partly because I've b... Read more
Paleo Week Results & Basking in the 'New Hottness'
Paleo week went great! We had a variety of food, didn't get bored, and my husband didn't complain everyday like he did with raw vegan week. I also broke a 2-Week long plateau, and lost 2.3 lbs. So I think it's a keeper.
This week, we're do... Read more
If you read my blogs, you know I get bored easily (except with my TaeBo workout). I like to keep things interesting -- from juicing to a raw vegan week, to intermittent fasting. I like to keep different flavors flowing, and test out different ea... Read more
100 Days of TaeBo!
Today marks my 100th straight day of TaeBo Basic. That's really an accomplishment considering I was in the hospital yesterday. I had really bad stomach cramps after finishing my run on Thursday night. I hardly slept, and the cramps just got wors... Read more
End of the Honeymoon? Could it Be?
Preparing to go out on my evening jog. Stomach is hurting a bit, so it might be more of a walk, but I'm looking forward to a little alone time with my podcasts. This was day 98 with TaeBo Basic, and I'm starting to think our honeymoon period is ... Read more
A Little Cuter
Well, I pulled out my slightly cuter workout clothes to run in last night. I don't know if I felt any better or not. They're not only cuter, but they're tighter, and a little more revealing... but they match. I guess I figure I'd rather be notic... Read more
Quit Looking at Me!
Well, yesterday I went on my 2nd jog this week here in my neighborhood. If you read my blog regularly, you know I'm a devoted TaeBo fan. I do it every morning, and I've pledged to keep doing it (or any other form of exercise) for the next 3 mont... Read more
Today is the 3-Month Anniversary of my 6-Month commitment to exercise EVERYDAY!
So far, I've stuck with TaeBo Basic in the mornings. I've persevered through sickness, schedule irregularities, baby births, vacation, touring schedules, interr... Read more
