6 months and still going!!
So obviously I haven't been blogging. Life has been very busy and I really haven't thought about sparkpeople all that much. I still read the weekly emails but even that sometimes takes me days to get to. Even though I haven't been on sparkpeople... Read more
It's been a while...
So since my last blog I have moved north and am working in the bush after 2.5 weeks of inside training here. I've gained some weight, I'm between 165-170 now most days. I'm exhausted after work, even though I'm only walking 2-3 km total through ... Read more
Goals obtained, confusion, and happiness
Well, After I got out of the Obese category....I fell right back into it!! I was fluctuating between 171-173 pounds until 3 days ago when my scale told me something amazing again!!! 165.0 Then 164.0 then 165.2. I'm definitely not complaining.

Wow!! I have not been able to say that in my adult life,..."I am not Obese".... Read more
Feeling kind of negative today
So I have a midterm tomorrow, a presentation tomorrow, a chapter to read on top of all my studying and prepping tonight. I still made time for the gym, and I'm going for a jog later tonight. Productive right? Somehow I feel like I'm failing. I l... Read more
Wow. I am actually impressed with myself. A week ago I blogged that I was 176 pounds...I don't know how accurate that was because I wasn't using a digital scale, but I bought one the other day and this morning I was 172.8 pounds. Not only have I... Read more
Slowly but surely :)
Okay maybe not that slowly, but sometimes it feels like it. 22 pounds gone in 10 weeks!! I'm officially 176 pounds :) Technically It's one more pound until my next goal, but I'm celebrating anyway. 36 more pounds to go :P. It's kinda sad to thin... Read more
9.5 weeks and my life seems so different
I Finally found a way to kick my butt at the gym. As I mentioned earlier, I did a fit camp class a few weeks ago that was so intense (to me) that I couldn't walk properly for 3 days afterwards. The next week I couldn't make any of the classes be... Read more
Increasing intensity...any ideas?
Wel, My workouts no longer feel intense, and I definitely need to push myself harder, but I'm not really sure what to do. Right now I'm stuck. I still have motivation for the gym, and I'm going to tomorrow's fit camp class (I couldn't make today... Read more
So Sore I can barely move :)
Well yesterday was an interesting day for me. I've been trying to push myself as hard as I can at the gym, but I've known something was missing. So yesterday, feeling pretty good my workout consisted of 15 minutes warm up on the "moon machine" (... Read more
7 weeks...18 pounds gone
Well I talked to my Dr today to try and figure out what my goal weight should be...he says I should be around 140. I still think that's too light because I have broad shoulders and feel like I'm just built bigger, so I'm going with a goal of 150... Read more
Better day today...Reached my first goal weight :)
6 weeks, 14 pounds and I finally reached my "unobtainable" first goal weight of 185 - or rather 184. I figure I've got roughly 30 pounds to go, but I'm not 100 % sure what my final goal weight will be. I figure 155 should be good, but we'll see ... Read more
Such a negative day :(
Yesterday was great, I felt amazing about my progress. Today, not so much....at all. I know I'm losing weight, but I can't see changes anymore and it's really upsetting. I jumped on the scale this morning, it said 184, I jumped on it after the g... Read more
Well, I haven't been to the gym in 2 days!! Chiropractor's orders though, not by choice. I pinched a nerve in my hip and I decided after a week I should go see one to get it fixed. But I'm going tonight!! I'm pretty excited.
On another not... Read more
Problems getting heart rate up? Any help/advice/insight?
So twice in the last week when I've been at the gym I've had problems getting my heart rate up. I can get it up to like 140 bpm, but I have problems maintaining even that and I don't know why. Pushing myself to an average heart rate of 150 is to... Read more
