Day 25: On The Fence

Sunday, January 25, 2015      0 comments

I joined the work Biggest Loser competition, although I've done it before (with little success obviously). Doesn't seem to mean much when it's all just weekly emails and not much else. We went out with friends last night to play pool. I mad... Read more

Day 19: I Got The Job??

Monday, January 19, 2015      4 comments

So despite what I thought was a write-off of an interview, they offered me the position! I usually harbour some semblance of hope no matter how bad an interview goes, or even if I know they have someone in mind, but this one I was not expecting ... Read more

Day 18: Fresh Air!!

Sunday, January 18, 2015      1 comments

It wasn't sunny, but it made it up to about 5C today, so bronchitis or not, I was desperate to go for a walk. And was I ever glad I did. I've been feeling so cooped up, between being sick and the winter weather, so I was very glad for the fresh ... Read more

Day 15: Oh So Sick...

Thursday, January 15, 2015      0 comments

Ugh and it just gets worse. I feel exhausted and drained all day long. I stayed home from work finally today; there is no way I could function for a full day of teenagers. Yesterday's interview was ok, despite my brain fog. But they said th... Read more

Day 13: Interview Season

Tuesday, January 13, 2015      0 comments

As semester 1 wraps up and I head into exam season, it also means that I'm heading into interview season for semester 2. In the last two days, I have applied for 10 jobs. Due to the seniority list, I'm pretty much guaranteed an interview for eac... Read more

Day 12: Why Now?

Monday, January 12, 2015      2 comments

Why now? Why is now the time to lose weight? That's a tough question to answer. I have been trying to lose weight for about 16 years, and in that time, I have essentially gained about 80 lbs. Obviously whatever I was doing did not work long... Read more

Day 11: This Is Hard

Sunday, January 11, 2015      1 comments

I had a huge weight drop during the first week; I was shocked. I shouldn't have dropped that much. I purposely was trying not to be too rigid right out the gate; I wasn't measuring portions, I wasn't worrying about extra snacks or calories, I wa... Read more

Day 1: I Want This

Thursday, January 01, 2015      0 comments

I've lost count of how many "Day 1"s I've had. I've also lost count of how many times I've said "This is my last Day 1". Every time, it feels like I'm going to do it differently, this time. And every time... well, obviously it hasn't worked out,... Read more

Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Phase 1 - Day 23

Wednesday, February 27, 2013      1 comments

Well, the last week food-wise was brutal. I don't even want to talk about it right now. But I was able to keep up with my workouts, even though there were some days I had to double up, today included. But I am where I am suppose to be, time-wise... Read more

Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Phase 1 Workout 4 - Day 16

Wednesday, February 20, 2013      1 comments

Today was much better. Workout 4 seems much more in line with where we should be on Week 3. Workout 3 was ridiculous. It was definitely a step up from the first two weeks, but I felt like I could do it. Things I'm hoping will improve a... Read more

Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Phase 1 Workout 3 - Day 15

Tuesday, February 19, 2013      4 comments

Well. That was excruciating. Ok, maybe not that bad, but close. Here's the good: - Like Jillian says, at least I showed up. - I did a few lunges! Like actual real lunges, with my knee touching the ground! I couldn't believe it! I was be... Read more

Half Done Phase 1! (Jillian Michaels Body Revolution)

Sunday, February 17, 2013      1 comments

And I am now finished the first two weeks. It's pretty exciting. I really do think I am getting better at the Running Mans, and definitely at the Kick Outs. Fast Feet still feels hard, I certainly am not going as fast at the people in the v... Read more

Goodbye Workouts 1 & 2!

Saturday, February 16, 2013      1 comments

And with that, I am finished with Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Workouts 1 & 2. And I am really nervous. I still felt challenged by them, even as Jillian's going on and on about enjoying these workouts because they are easy and are just ... Read more

Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Phase 1 Workout 1 - Day 8

Tuesday, February 12, 2013      1 comments

Yesterday was strange... without a workout to do, I didn't know what to do with myself! (I managed just fine!) We lost every game at volleyball last night, but it is so much fun; I love my team. I can't believe I do Workout 1 only once more... Read more

Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Phase 1 Cardio 1 - Day 6

Sunday, February 10, 2013      2 comments

Week 1 is done!! The scale finally went down some today, which I'm obviously happy about. I'm still up overall tho since starting BR, so it's still not great, but hopefully I'm now on the downward trend instead of upward. It still feels lik... Read more
