Hitting rock bottom... it's been a crazy few months...
Monday, July 30, 2012      2 comments

Where to begin? My life has changed completely in the past 6 months. I'll spare you the long (albeit interesting and transformative) story. I broke up with my boyfriend of 4 years in March. Ended up having nothing left - no money at all, and now... Read more
Feeling positively wonderful :]

I have been feeling so ridiculously good lately. I gained some weight since moving to Austin in June due to overeating, little exercise, and dropped habits. Only recently have I started to be more motivated to take better care of myself and my b... Read more

Thursday, September 22, 2011      7 comments

A reminder of how far I've come in 10 years... I'm so hard on myself. And the truth is, there have been big ups and downs during these past 10 years. But I have kept ... Read more
Doritos! McDonald's! Ice Cream! Oh, my!

I always laugh when I see commercials for junk food. The people in them are actors, and are pretty much always thin and fit... but the reality is, if you scarf Whoppers and a 10-piece bucket of chicken often, it's pretty unlikely that you'd look... Read more

UGH. I am on this constant swing back and forth... I need to get back into a regular exercise regimen and get some better eating patterns. I get to this point where I think I'm happy the way I am and I get kind of lazy. I also get sooo wrapped u... Read more

Sunday, January 30, 2011      3 comments

I think sometimes I resent the fact that I feel like I need to lose more weight. (I'm at 166 and my ultimate goal is 125-130.) It's silly really, because then I eat more than I should or exercise less than I should. I subsequently rationalize th... Read more

Originally posted this in the Done Girls forum... thought I'd post it here as well... Soooo, I kind of took the summer off from Sparkpeople, and I have about 6-10 extra pounds to show for it (yikes!). (I'm not sure exactly of my weight... Read more

Life After Weight-Loss... & Stupid Plateaus...
Wednesday, June 02, 2010      8 comments

So, I still have 30+ pounds to lose. But having lost 100, you can bet my life has changed. My confidence has soared, of course. And not just because of the weight loss, but because I worked a lot on fixing my broken emotional self. Still, I... Read more

I've heard that said by fellow Sparklers, and I LOVE IT. I need to post it everywhere. I got so thrown off of my routine last week when my dear friend Kaitlyn came to Boulder. But I had a blast! We went on a tour of Celestial Seasonin... Read more

That is what my 9am Boot Camp class consists of. It's Boulder... we have the lowest obesity rate in the country. Some people here think you're weird if you don't seriously take up at least one of the following: running, biking, hiking, roc... Read more

I'll just have to list all the awesome things that have transpired in the past week: Challenged myself to a boot-camp like class and succeeded admirably! Almost everyone else in there was faster and stronger and much more fit than me, but I... Read more
