What REALLY Works
Everybody and every BODY is different, but what have I realized are the most effective tactics to making this all 'stick'? Let me share what works for me, and what most certainly does not.
While I support counting calories... Read more
Just Keep Going!
For all those who get discouraged if the scale doesn't move for awhile, or even wavers up a few lbs, JUST KEEP GOING! The scale literally did not move down the entire month of March, all the while I was staying right on track with my food and go... Read more
The Tortoise Vs The Hare
I have always been the hare when it comes to weight loss - I race to the finish line as fast as I can. Successful year after year, yet I busted my butt twice a day most days and essentially starved myself. There is no doubt that I know how to co... Read more
Sixth Bit To Fix It
Those who know me, are probably tired of hearing I am working on losing weight, yet again! Well, thank you to all those who continue to support me each and every time - I know one of these times it WILL stick, for good - and it's going to be thi... Read more
Week One vs the Weak One
This isn't my first rodeo. I've been back to SP more times than I'd like to admit. I still need to figure out how I can make this my life, not just my few month layover for the summer. I recognize that. But, alas, I am back and have completed my... Read more
Biking Through A Plateau
I recently took up biking. My poor bike had been sitting in my garage, untouched, for the three years I've lived in this apartment. Already an avid runner, I really wanted to add another fun exercise to my regimen to do on the days I don't run. ... Read more
When They Notice
Today is the end of week seven of being at this whole 'new me' thing (already?!). Crazy. So in my last blog I was super excited about buying size 8 shorts and that my skinny jeans fit me again, right? Well, now I just want to brief what a reward... Read more
I leave for Tampa, FL two weeks from today to visit a friend of mine who just moved down there for work (oh DARN, I feel really bad for you). So over the last week I have been trying on summer bottoms from last year - two pairs of shorts, one a ... Read more
You HAVE To Be A Fighter
When I read these blogs or message board posts basically revolving around excuses, complaining and whining, it really kind of crawls under my skin and bothers me. Oh, you thought this road would be easy? Please. Itís probably the hardest road we... Read more
Thank You, Body
I think about how fortunate I am to have a body so resilient. This body forgives me: for feeding it junk, for not doing more physical activity than is required of me, for poisoning it with too much alcohol and not enough water..essentially, kick... Read more
Accomplishments & Productivity!
Started off this morning by going to the public market with a friend of mine. It gets sooo crowded there so I stuck to my little list and got in and got out! Loaded up on tons of fresh veggies that I will be mowing through this week: eggplant, s... Read more
My best friend Zach convinced me to get out and do my first run of the year with him yesterday. He's been going to the gym regularly and he enjoys jogging, we ran a 5k together last year and he's a super amazing support, as are his parents. I've... Read more
The Candy Craze of Holidays
I commented on a blog by FITMOMMY18 in regards to this topic, and thought I would elaborate.
She was talking about Easter, and the candy that is in the house for the kids. It just got me to thinking about how all holidays are somehow tied t... Read more
Why Hello, Week 3!
Somehow the start of week three is already here! Again, this ain't my first rodeo..but it is week three of round three with SP. And ya know what? It's like riding a bike. Getting back to the old (good) ways has been quite effortless, I have to a... Read more
Losing And Loving The Loss
So it's my third round on SP, nevermind the countless number of times I'd tried and failed to keep off weight in the years prior. In reading recent blogs, I'm glad I'm not the only one who hasn't gotten it right the first time and achieved their... Read more
