Willpower is a Muscle
Monday, December 09, 2013      1 comments

At one point in time I saw the phrase "willpower is a muscle, exercise it!" And I just sort of scoffed. Yeah, right. But last night I realized that was so true. I had gone all day and stayed within my calorie range for the day. I was... Read more
Check-in 12/8/2013
Sunday, December 08, 2013      1 comments

I decided that I should check in once a week with my stats and keep things consistent. Unfortunately, I decided that after I'd already weighed. So. Yesterday's weight will count as today's. Last week: 240.4 This week: 238 Here's my w... Read more
baby motivation
Tuesday, December 03, 2013      5 comments

I know it's really hard to stay motivated sometimes. And superficial goals don't always work after a certain point, because they can seem so far off. I had a year check up yesterday and my doctor has decided to keep me off of hormonal birth cont... Read more
Question: How Many Times Can I Start Over?
Sunday, November 24, 2013      4 comments

Answer: As often as needed! So often, we get caught up in the diet mentality. That we need to follow a calculator and if we do it to a T, a we will lose exactly x amount of pounds in x weeks. For many, this works. But for many others (and I... Read more
running consistently
Wednesday, August 14, 2013      4 comments

For now I'm going to avoid the fact that I'm nowhere near my goal for this month, and instead focus on the fact that tomorrow will be week 2, day 3 of c25k. I have never made it this far, and this is the best running experience I've ever had. Y... Read more

Tuesday, July 23, 2013      3 comments

I missed starting T25 on a Monday so I started today. I started in the day 2 workout to keep up with the calendar and wow. It was intense! I'm anxious to see what tomorrow holds that's for sure. My eating today wasn't the most wonderful. I staye... Read more
Goodbye Old Blog :(
Thursday, September 06, 2012      1 comments

I deleted my old tumblr blog the other day. I'd been running a pretty awesome (in my opinon) weight loss blog over there but it was really messing with my head. It was giving me really toxic thoughts and becoming way too addicting. I'm proud of ... Read more

Started c25k
Wednesday, June 06, 2012      5 comments

I didn't even know it was National Running Day and last night I decided to start the c25k again. Go figure! I ran by myself, no headphones, no texts. Just me, the sunrise, the birds, the other occasional runners, the pinecone that tripped me and... Read more
I'm on track!!!
Tuesday, April 17, 2012      2 comments

Well, almost. My ultimate goal is to be at 135 by my 23rd birthday on January 13, 2013. I thought I needed to lose 2 pounds a week but if I lose 1.5 a week (totally able to do that) I should be there by January 19. CLOSE ENOUGH. Even if I hit 15... Read more
change is good
Saturday, March 03, 2012      2 comments

I've been doing pretty darn good at staying on track! The scale hasn't moved as much as I'd like but my husband has said he can see a difference, and I can definitely feel a difference so that's much better than no numbers dropping and no change... Read more
Finishing Strong & A NSV
Thursday, February 23, 2012      1 comments

I'm going to be blunt, I did NOT want to work out yesterday. I like work outs where I can feel my muscles burning but not my lungs. Clearly I've figured out by now that that's not what burns calories most efficiently, so I started the 30 Day Shr... Read more
stroke of genius.... figured out how to optimize my tracker
Wednesday, February 22, 2012      1 comments

I didn't realize that if I plan on burning more calories than suggested (I'm doing 30 Day Shred) then you can change your calories burned goal and it will adjust your food settings. No wonder I used to be ravenously hungry all the stinkin' time ... Read more

making it a lifestyle change, not a diet (FINALLY)
Monday, September 12, 2011      2 comments

As I was updating my sparkpeople status today, I almost put something along the lines of "can't wait to start REALLY sparking again!". Then I realized, using this website has always been a bit out of context for me. I've always used it as a diet... Read more
