Managing Expectations
Wednesday, November 13, 2019      2 comments

I'm three and a half weeks into my routine and one of the biggest lessons I'm learning, especially this past week, is how to manage my expectations. Like most people, I hop on the weight loss train, see some quick water weight loss, and feel lik... Read more
First 2 Weeks Down!
Sunday, November 03, 2019      4 comments

My husband and I have been together for three and a half years and in that time we've both gained a bit of weight. From going to too many restaurants when we were dating to celebrating with too much food as fresh newlyweds to getting lazy and or... Read more
I Passed Up Free Mexican Food...On Purpose!
Tuesday, October 29, 2019      6 comments

Whoa, guys. I'm just as surprised as y'all are at the title. But it's true! I had the opportunity to eat free Mexican food today and I skipped it. I work in an OBGYN office and we have drug reps that bring catered lunches fairly often. It's... Read more
I'm A Morning Exerciser?
Sunday, October 27, 2019      3 comments

I've never been a morning person. At all. I'm the exact opposite and an insomniac. The only time I'm willingly awake during morning hours is after the clock strikes midnight. No one is more surprised than me that I actually got up at 5:30 on Mon... Read more
I'm Back in Action!
Monday, May 13, 2019      4 comments

Whoa, guys. It's been over a year since I've been on SparkPeople. I've had a lot of fun this past year away from the tracking and exercising. I got married, started my first semester of pre-reqs for nursing school (and made a 4.0!), and started ... Read more
Ice Skating Lessons?
Wednesday, March 28, 2018      1 comments

Like many people, I've always been fascinated by the grace, power, and athleticism of watching a professional ice skater. There's a small part of me that wishes I had just a fraction of the talent and determination that lies within the skaters I... Read more
Not Feeling It Today
Tuesday, March 27, 2018      3 comments

Today is one of those days that is an uphill battle. I feel like eating everything I can get my hands on, I have zero motivation to exercise, and I'm incredibly tired. My allergies have been going crazy and I think the changing weather is wreaki... Read more
Cutting Through The Excuses
Thursday, March 22, 2018      2 comments

Sometimes, the hardest part of reaching your goal is to cut through all the excuses. Shut out all the negative voices in your head and just do it. Those inner demons have kept many people from reaching their potential. In my experience, the excu... Read more
Finding Myself Again
Wednesday, March 21, 2018      3 comments

I don't know why but over the past few months I've really been struggling with keeping myself accountable and on track. I'm back up to some of my highest weights and it's really taking a hit on my self-esteem and confidence. When I originally sa... Read more
A Fresh Start
Thursday, January 04, 2018      2 comments

Like most people, I view the new year as a fresh start for myself. It's a chance to let go of the baggage that weighed me down (in some cases, literally) and take a big step forward. I actually haven't made any resolutions this year since I hadn... Read more
I Think I'm Doing It Backwards?
Thursday, November 02, 2017      3 comments

I imagine most people on SparkPeople have their own way of preparing themselves for the upcoming holidays and the overeating that's bound to happen. Since I became a member in 2009, I've read countless blog posts and comments ranging from "I'm s... Read more
Figuring Out My ADHD
Wednesday, November 01, 2017      1 comments

Welp. I fell off the wagon again. Apparently, I can talk the talk but I can't quite walk the walk yet. I'm definitely not as motivated or determined as I was in my last blog post...yet! I managed to let life get to me too much and I used way too... Read more

If you've been reading my blog posts, then you know I started a Mile A Day Challenge. It's a personal challenge in that it's not something I'm doing as part of a group but there are tons of variations to the challenge that you can find online. T... Read more
Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Motivation Vs. Determination
Monday, September 11, 2017      31 comments

Today has been a pretty good day for the most part but, for some reason, I have just been void of any and all motivation. I was a little surprised to find myself in this rut considering I was on Cloud 9 yesterday after having such a great workou... Read more
Building Momentum!
Sunday, September 10, 2017      2 comments

Today has been another great day! The nasty stomach virus I've been fighting the last three days is finally gone and I can stomach real food again. My boyfriend made a quick veggie filled spaghetti dinner but it could have been a 5 star meal. I ... Read more
