Sunday, January 17, 2010      3 comments

We're in a new year... a new decade! Exciting times! In the last decade (weird that it's the first one which I remember all of!) my net weight has gone down 85 pounds - from 265 to about 180. There were bumps in the road - like gaining 40 p... Read more

A Testament to the Greatness of Healthy Living
Wednesday, December 09, 2009      2 comments

I read recently that it's much easier and more sustainable to completely overthrow all of your unhealthy eating and exercise habits than to change one or two at a time. For example, rather than saying you will give up chocolate, or start taking ... Read more

I notice that every time I start exercising regularly, I stop biting my nails! I'm totally not kidding! They're getting so long, lol! A bit too long for what I'm used to :)~ I mentioned it to my boyfriend, and he said it's probably because ... Read more

In One Year, I Will Have A Body Like Beyonce!
Tuesday, December 01, 2009      5 comments

I figured that in terms of proportions (except for the boobage), I am most likely to be similar to Beyonce's body size once I get down to 130 pounds! If I'm as toned as her, that is. Which I will be ;) In one year, I am going to have ... Read more

NO MORE REGRETS. NO MORE EXCUSES... That goes for myself, and anyone reading this. Think of where you want to be in 1 year. Work towards that TODAY. Work towards that EVERY DAY. Otherwise, you will always have this regret. I... Read more

I was looking through Facebook today when I came across the profile of this girl from my high school. I didn't really know her - she ran more with what I guess you'd call the pretty, perfect, "popular crowd" while I was friends with theater kids... Read more

(I wrote this the other day and forgot to post it!) A blank slate. I have so much to say and not much patience. I'm working on it. I lost a lot of weight in high school, then I found it again in college. Started at 265, got down t... Read more
What is wrong with me?

AhhhhhhhHhHhhhHhhh! OK. So. I have been keeping up the exercise pretty consistently (though I still do need to amp it up). It's the eating that has been inconsistent. Some days I'll eat 1700 calories, some days it balloons to 2500. This cle... Read more
Review of September
Friday, October 02, 2009      2 comments

I'm going to start weighing in weekly. I wanted to avoid the scale so as not to be disappointed, but I have to hold myself accountable. It's weird - I am so committed to exercising/eating right for a few weeks, then I get off track - only to get... Read more

Sooo, I felt like I got off track a few times this month, but really, it was probably that I went a little too far with the exercise and had to give myself some break days. I've been doing great with strength training, and I started a running pr... Read more
