Day 1 - Yes, you read that right
Monday, September 24, 2012      2 comments

As motivating as SparkPeople and my Spark friends are and can be, I had given up (or so I thought). I decided I did not want to try to lose weight or live healthy anymore, and I grew quiet and painfully withdrew. This was not a surprise to me,... Read more

I am trying to live a Paleo life. So far I am about 60% there, and it doesn't count yet. I have no allergies to foods, but honestly, I LOVE the way I feel eating Paleo. Unfortunately, it is a lot of hard work to come up with recipes and plan ... Read more

So, I have been off SparkPeople for a week almost now, really, really fraking sick. I was able to still get to the gym until Wednesday, keeping up with my goal of 6 days on the bike for 27 weeks (I will post about that tomorrow), but I had to m... Read more

Thursday, August 23, 2012      3 comments

OK, before I say what is frustrating me, there are 2 things (and this is the place to vent, right), I have to preface it with the following: * I am eating between 1700-2000 calories DAILY * I am working out 5 days a week cardio (... Read more

I am back in the land of the 200+ pound folk, as opposed to 300+ Woo-hoo! Still a long way to go, but that difference is a huge mental barrier. i have been thinking about triathlon - I am scheduled for a race in April of 2013 in Napa CA.... Read more

Wednesday, August 15, 2012      1 comments

Here’s the deal. This blog is threefold; first, to be honest about something, second, to talk about me and third, to give you all a little Vegas etiquette. OK, so I did not break 300 this weekend like I thought. I was actually a little ba... Read more

Like other people, I too felt miserable watching the weight come back on after so much loss, but today, I am doing it. Again. And will continue to do it over and over and over until it sticks. Because you and I? We are worth every dang drop ... Read more
