Monday, February 02, 2015      2 comments

Here in Michigan we got hit pretty hard with snow yesterday so I did not make it to the gym, fearing the road conditions and the real possibility I would not be able to get out of my driveway. We even decided to close my office for today due to... Read more
Day 16/100
Wednesday, January 28, 2015      3 comments

Today is the 16th day in a row that I have worked out. My goal is to go for 100 days in a row. No excuses no slacking. The only allowance I am giving myself is if I am sick and cannot even go to work that day. Or if I injure myself somehow. Even... Read more

i finally bought a scale for home. I have never had a scale and the one at my current gym is junk. After working out for a few weeks I can tell my clothes are fitting more loosely on me. However when I weighed myself I was about 5 pounds up from... Read more
Negativity
Wednesday, January 14, 2015      2 comments

I work with a few people who are so negative on a daily basis. This usually drags me down with them. I can feel the weight of their words. I slough them off and get back to work, I pointedly ignore them and move on with my day. I must stay f... Read more

Feeling motivated again
Thursday, January 08, 2015      1 comments

Finally! I am feeling motivated again. I have been so depressed and lonely lately. It's been a challenge to just get out of bed in the morning for work, let alone getting up early to hit the gym. I needed a kick in the butt and I got it. My... Read more
Falling down

What is that saying about falling down seven times amd getting back up eight? I have fallen off the wagon and stayed off for the past 7 months. Why? Because I chose not to go... Read more
Crap
Thursday, August 07, 2014      3 comments

So I haven't been on here in months, which is because I haven't worked out in months. Other than the Color Run 5K I completed in June. I guess I have been ashamed of myself and avoiding this place because I wasn't living up to my own standards... Read more
Re-motivation
Thursday, March 27, 2014      2 comments

Over the last three weeks I have been to the gym once a week. Coming down from my 4-6 times a week this felt like a huge failure to me. Even when I weighed myself at the gym to see that I hadn't gained any weight back but I also hadn't lost an... Read more

Setbacks
Sunday, January 12, 2014      2 comments

I just feel like I am never going to get it right. I've been going to the gym and getting my fitness minutes in. But I feel like no matter how hard I try I just can't seem to stop eating over my calorie limit. It's more like drinking over my ... Read more
