Thursday, August 15, 2013      3 comments

I said in a previous post that I am not weiging myself right now, nor was I planning to any time soon. I stand by my reasoning. It isn't an accurate measure of how hard I am working or my accomplishments and generally serves only to discourage a... Read more

So here is a question... I'm just curious as to other opinions on the situation... I have had many girl friends who have been in relationships with guys where the guy made it clear that their relationship wasn't going to be long-term. Everyone... Read more

I'm doing better since the last time I wrote. Still in a bit of a funk but I think refocusing on my reasons for exercising and changing my eating habits has helped. Yes, I want to lose weight and yes I want to look better. But there are so many ... Read more

I am in a slump today and I need some positive reinforcement. I am still not weighing myself. The first few weeks I thought I could see a difference in the way my clothes were fitting and the way I felt, but now, after about 5 weeks of seriously... Read more

Almost ten days since my last blog post.... Here's an update! I have gone to the gym 6 times since June 4. We (my workout buddy and I) have been kicking major ass. Yesterday we walked to the gym (about a 20 min walk each way) did about an hour... Read more

Soooo here I go again. I am trying to get back on track after MONTHS of "letting myself go." I am starting small, one step at a time. Right now I am focused on drinking 64 oz of water each day, tracking my food and workouts, and making it to the... Read more

I am in a seeeeerious rut. I just can't seem to get out of it. I have moments of motivation, determination, but they are fleeting. I feel like I have lost faith in myself, so I can't even convince myself that it is worth it to try. I know that s... Read more

At what point is it okay to end a friendship? I have been thinking about this question a lot lately. Friendship has always been deeply important to me. I am an only child, and my friends have often been like surrogate siblings. I believe being... Read more

Last night was hard. Actually, the past two nights have been hard. I haven't yet had the time to do any legitimate grocery shopping. Monday night I didn't get home until 11:30 and my parents were both sleeping so I didn't want to take a long tim... Read more

So far I have gone 6 days without fast food. It has been easier than I anticipated. It helps that I am both broke and really busy. Of course, being really busy has also been a challenge a couple of times. We don't have a lot of convenience food ... Read more

Sunday, January 15, 2012      2 comments

I was just revising my reward list, and decided to add a reward for going 105 days without eating any fast food, with the exception of the occasional healthy sandwich from Subway. My birthday is 105 days away. I am curious to see how much differ... Read more

Wow. What a crazy year for me, full of obstacles, unexpected turns, and changes. I started the year off with the biggest change/challenge by picking a fight with my roommate and best friend and moving out literally at 4 am New Year's Day. "Hi mo... Read more

There is so much that I want, and so much that I want to do, and I want it all RIGHT NOW!! Sometimes it just seems that there is not enough time for my life, and I get really overwhelmed by my own expectations of myself. I try to tell myself tha... Read more

I don't know what more I can do. I worked out 6 days last week and burned over 5000 calories. And I was 90% or more on track with my calories. And I gained weight.... Read more
