Pushing Me to My Limit!
Thursday, April 28, 2011      4 comments

My trainer tries to kill me. I swear that every time I meet with him, that's his goal. He pushes me until I feel like I can't do anything else. But I realized something during my session yesterday. He never pushes me further than what I can do. ... Read more

My trainer gave me a few specific instructions to help me lose weight. One of them was a number to hit for calories every day. When I started talking about how I hate dieting, he gave me a dieting motto. He said "just don't eat stupid". At ... Read more

I try to stay upbeat and positive, but sometimes it's so easy to let life bog me down and drive me crazy. I've been reading a lot of self-help and motivational books. While I'm reading them, I feel like I can take on the world, but a few h... Read more

I wish that my mood did not correspond with the weather so much. I mean, it seems to be so much easier for me to get motivated and be happy about it when the sun is shining and the birds are singing. When it's overcast and windy and rainy, all I... Read more

I did not have a very good day yesterday. It started out great and then slowly went downhill. I think my eating habits played a huge part in it. I ate less and was strict with my calorie counting, but I left too much time in between eating and g... Read more

Here I am, 29 years old and nowhere near where I thought I'd be. I've decided to take charge of my life. I need to stop expecting things to magically become better and actually do something to make the magic happen. I've decided to start by losi... Read more
