Hello friends. I haven't blogged since May, so I am going to catch up just a little. Last May I joined a gym and the trainer commanded me to turn to clean eating. I tried, but I can't do it. Sorry - others have pointed out how doable ... Read more

Eating clean is a great idea, and I know I feel better now that I am trying to do it. However, eating 6 small meals a day is a concept arrived at by people who don't have anything else to do all day BUT eat 6 times and workout. That's my theory... Read more

I am in dire need of a 'cranial-rectal extraction.' That's my technical way of saying I need to get my head out of my butt. I worked my butt off for like 3 months and got down to 285, and then I hit the wall. I just plain quit eating right and ... Read more

This last week I have experienced a personal crisis. I've got a crack in my resolve to be 100% committed to getting healthy, and I'm struggling to regain my momentum. I'm a stress and emotional eater. Not a surprise. I'm teary eyed sittin... Read more

My heart and head are just so full of thoughts these days...thoughts about fitness and losing weight and finding the right way to get the job done for me. Sometimes I wonder if I even know what I am doing; other times I am sure I know. I... Read more

It has been a true day of testing today. I went to school knowing that I had like 100 papers and tests to grade. It was a day of many interruptions, but I got most of my things graded. I was bad at lunch and ate waaaay off menu. (stress, you... Read more

I can't believe a new year is nearly here. Sadly, I am nowhere near where I meant to be a year ago when I dragged home the elliptical and enrolled in the Biggest Loser plan. The rewards I reaped far outweigh the downers, that's for sure. ... Read more

It's been almost a week since the falling down the stairs incident. My toe still hurts a lot, but I just can't let that be my reason for sitting on my butt. I have too much territory to conquer to wait for my big toe to heal. I did Bob's ... Read more

I don't love my bike, let's just get that straight right now. My bike seat hurts my butt, my legs get wimpy and weak when riding, and I imagine that I may look ridiculous on said bike because at my current weight...well....ewww. Last week ... Read more

This last week was a week of mighty struggles. I had to force myself to exercise every day. I have that overwhelming feeling that no matter what I do, nothing is going to come of it. I had a great week with workouts. In contrast I felt that I... Read more
