Doing Me!
Wednesday, January 09, 2019      3 comments

It's taken me awhile to fully understand that what works for some people may not work for me (and typically doesn't). While I'm way behind my original goal of hitting 160lbs by 12/2017, I've made a lot of positive changes since then. Previousl... Read more
Back on the Grind and in Need of Suggestions!
Thursday, October 19, 2017      3 comments

It took me longer to get back on track than anticipated...had a few false starts but I am recommitting to getting this weight off (again). While I gained 10 of the 35-40lbs I lost previously, I feel like it's a ton and can really tell it's back... Read more

Well I fell off the wagon so to speak over the past 3 weeks and have not been exercising or tracking my food. While I've only gained 2-3lbs back, I can tell that I am more sluggish and tired than I used to be. Subsequently, I am rededicating m... Read more

I've been on this weight loss journey since January 16th and have lost a total of 28lbs (give or take a couple on any given day). While I'm certainly smaller than I was (down 2 pants sizes), I am struggling with motivation the last few weeks. ... Read more
The weeks ahead
Monday, May 08, 2017      3 comments

While I always make short-term monthly goals....I never really write them down so I figure for this month I'd give it a try to see if I feel more accountable. So here goes. #1 - lose 8 pounds this month (2 pounds per week) #2 - workout a ... Read more
Sunday rest day?
Sunday, April 16, 2017      2 comments

I know a lot of people rest on Sundays, but I prefer to use the one day I have free (with the exception of laundry) to workout, spend time doing outside activities...anything other than sitting on the couch. My days are so busy the remainder of ... Read more

Wednesday, April 05, 2017      3 comments

Well I had every intention of staying on track during my weekend adventure but ended up doing quite the opposite. While I wasn't horribly over in calories, I didn't exercise or sleep for that matter. Subsequently, I have been having a rough ti... Read more

Nutritionist Update
Wednesday, March 29, 2017      1 comments

Met with my nutritionist this morning and received rave reviews for my progress (lost 5 pounds since seeing her 2 weeks ago). While I'll be doing some traveling in the next few weeks, she helped me come up with a game plan and some new goals so... Read more
Being present
Sunday, March 26, 2017      0 comments

Each few weeks I want to challenge myself to build a better me. I'm consistent with eating better and exercising so now I plan to conquer being more present. It's so easy to get wrapped up in work, electronics, and endless chores/tasks but I fee... Read more
