Wednesday, November 04, 2015      3 comments

I am encouraged today. Even though they told us not to step on the scale every day, I have. Every day, I have seen weight come off, which is great. The optifast people told us to measure our success in other ways, as well. So today, I put on a p... Read more
Day 4. Keep on chugging along

Yesterday morning was really tough. It was so much better in the evening. I had my first glimpse of "I can do this". Today was my first day back at work. My co-workers seemed to have a lot of questions for me as they came by and saw the shakes o... Read more

This is hard. Really hard. I am so hungry today. I was so hungry last night. Now I am almost in tears. 4 months feels like eternity at this point. I am dizzy, fatigued, and again... hungry. I miss real food, even though it was bad for me. I am s... Read more

Looking over the posts from 2012, I remember how great it felt to lose that weight. I stopped being so diligent with my food at the end of 2013. Then slowly in this year, I have reduced the amount of time working out. I gained weight back. I los... Read more

I started the 8 week 5k program on sparkpeople today. I have never been a runner. I have definitely tried to run in the past, along with various training program, but was quickly discouraged because I never seemed to 'get better' or 'get faster'... Read more

It has been years since I tried yoga. I tried again today. Even though it was different, I am glad I did it. I mixed up my work out routine, so that's good, right? I need to work on attainable goals. Just like school, I can't finish a 3 year p... Read more
Wasted time

School is coming next week. It is the biggest 'taker of time' in my life. I need to think of ways to gain time to work out and eat right. I think I need to cut back on internet surfing time and TV to do that. Wish me luck!... Read more
Worries about failure

Well I looked back at my fitness chart and I have not taken a day off since late July. Working out every day has made me feel better about what I am trying to accomplish. As a grad student working in schools, it's easy to find 250+ minutes a we... Read more

With a trip to Tahoe coming up in just a few days, I am trying to hit all my fitness goals before I go. I am not sure if that is the 'best' thing to do, but I am doing it anyway. What's the motto? "Don't feel it? Do it anyway". So that means... Read more
So many reasons
Monday, August 13, 2012      1 comments

So I have been thinking of all the reasons I need to lose weight. There are a ton. Some of them make me more vulnerable to the general public than I would like to share. But suffice it to say that I have more reasons to try to get fit than not. ... Read more
