I am fat (and I don't mean PHAT)
Yep, I said it. And I'm not sorry.
In the past 18 months I cannot BELIEVE how I've let myself go. I keep telling myself "Oh, it's only about 10-15 lbs." ONLY 10-15 POUNDS?!?! Really? Since when is gaining back all the weight I worked h... Read more
Day 3: Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse (Final Results!)
Ooooh Boy! Day 3 was killer! All I could think about was food and how much of it I was going to eat as soon as I was done with this stupid cleanse. I was a bit crabby at the limitations and really, I just wanted to nosh on something. ANYTHIN... Read more
Day 2: Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse
I'm not gonna lie... day 2 was a rough one.
I got up feeling great. Obviously, from my last blog, I was on top of the world! After my weigh-in I had my morning shake and settled in for the day. But, I was off. I wasn't active at all (by... Read more
Day 1: Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse
My friend (BeachBody Coach April :-) ) thought it would be a great idea to invite me to her Shakeology 3-Day cleanse. She convinced me to give Shakeology a try a month earlier, and I did. To be honest, I didn't see lots of great results. My s... Read more
I did it.
I made a meal plan last Monday. And I went grocery shopping. TWICE in the same day, actually. It almost killed me. But I did it.
I cooked almost every night (save the night I just ate a big ol' salad). Ate leftovers for ... Read more
Leif and I have made a friendly wager. Sometimes goals are more fun when you're in competition, I guess. So, "Biggest Loser" style we've chosen a percentage of weight loss combined with weekly weigh-in/celebrations for one another. Whoever "w... Read more
I started the C25K program yesterday. I *just* realized that it's a 3 day/week program. What in the world am I supposed to do the other days?
I signed up for a kettlebell class at my local YMCA yesterday. The class starts on 4/14 but I have... Read more

I ate an entire box of Russell Stover chocolate this weekend.
I ate two packages of Blueberry Muffin PopTarts with my morning cup of joe yesterday morning.
I had Chipotle for dinner on Friday, leftover Chipotle for lunch on Saturday and prob... Read more
Seriously, I could eat my face off... or yours!
I can NOT get enough food! It seems like the past couple days have been crazy, insane, hungry, need-more type of days. I'd like to say that it's because I've been working out abnormally (but alas, I'm not pushing myself any further than I do e... Read more
Hard to say. What I CAN say - with certainty - is that I felt like absolute dog balls yesterday!
A week ago I planned to go out to breakfast with my Mom. It's something we used to do frequently and as of the last year or so it's waned. I... Read more
I try really hard not to be one of those fanatical weigh-inners. You know, the ones that weigh themselves every single day and then inevitably freak out when the numbers fluctuate. Duh. But, I did get curious and weigh myself this morning.

Today I told myself I was going to rest. I had it all planned. Last week my workout routine included 5am treadmill walk/runs Monday - Friday. On Saturday I set my alarm for 7am to do the same. Sunday, I just wanted to sleep in.
But I se... Read more
And I was sad...
... but not TOO sad.
Stepped on the scale today and saw a 1 pound gain! What in the WORLD?!?! How could have this happened?!!? Did I NOT run on that blasted treadmill for FIVE mornings in a row? FIVE!!!!! Did I NOT keep in my calorie r... Read more
Today marks the fourth day of a 5am treadmill workout. I could say that I hate getting up that early. I could say that putting on my cold workout clothes and warming up in the BASEMENT - shivering for the first five minutes - is horrible. I c... Read more
- had a good breakfast, included an extra cup of coffee. (Okay, so that wasn't exactly a good choice!)
-family fun with lunch and a movie. Researched the menu for PF Changs and made an informed decision on what to eat. (Did you know that m... Read more
