Back where I started, but better
Tuesday, October 13, 2020      4 comments

My weight isn't where I want it to be. I'm back wearing the same size pants I wore when I was at my biggest and many of the same shirts. I can see myself intentionally choosing clothes that are too big in order to hide myself. I hate my stomach.... Read more
Moving toward functional fitness
Monday, October 05, 2020      2 comments

I'm still alive and kicking. I'm back to the gym fairly regularly, despite CoVid. Been trying a lot more stuff out at the gym lately. I think it'd because there's less folks there and many of the folks that are there, are the regulars that I kno... Read more
Gym, Stress, Bed
Wednesday, July 22, 2020      2 comments

I did get to the gym on Tuesday. Having that specific time and expectation really got me out the door. I'm really sore today from it! Food prep has kept me straight. When I get home and I no longer have that food prep to keep me straight, and ... Read more
Getting back up, down; Getting rid of a major excuse; Finally 30
Monday, July 20, 2020      3 comments

As the state and country open up, I am working to get back on track. Yesterday, I began to prep my meals. While I had "enough" food, I was missing the parts of the meal that would have made it more exciting and would have left me full for the re... Read more
A little hurt (emotionally)
Wednesday, June 10, 2020      3 comments

Today, I weighed in down a smidge, but I glanced at my monthly average. My monthly average is up 1.6 pounds. I wanted to lose that! Once thing I have to remind myself is that I just started a new mindset of eating. I'm getting back to trackin... Read more
"Buddha" Bowls
Tuesday, June 09, 2020      4 comments

Yesterday, before shopping, I watched a video by Shred Bundy (Instagram is shredBundy; I don't know his real name) where he made Buddha bowls (he did point out that true buddha bowls would be vegan, but nonetheless...). He had edamame, roasted c... Read more
Talking to myself

Today's visualization at SparkCoach was "Today, imagine your "future self" giving your past (or current) self a hug. See your future self thanking your past self for having the courage to move forward in this healthy lifestyle journey. How does ... Read more
Not Super Happy

I'm not particularly happy with myself. In fact, I'm rather irritated. If you look at the chart, you can see what's happening. There are a few thing... Read more
Redesign
Thursday, February 20, 2020      2 comments

Lately, I've been working to re-examine my goals, more importantly, what is important to me, and how my goals and values are connected. My objective is to break this habit I have of comparing myself now to the me of 2017. I was on a really great... Read more
Heavy Day
Tuesday, February 18, 2020      5 comments

I was really debating on tracking my weight this week. I decided to do it anyways because I'd rather have the inflated number appear than to have no record at all. I know the number is inflated because I weighed myself at the end of the day, r... Read more
275lbs by Friday, February 28
Monday, February 10, 2020      4 comments

The past week was very hard for me. My schedule was super out of whack, so I hardly made it to the gym. Since I couldn't do that, I focused on restricting what I ate most of the days. I figured, if I wasn't moving as much, I don't need as many c... Read more
Yesterday's Eating (Short Entry)
Tuesday, February 04, 2020      1 comments

Ha! I'm laughing at myself today. Yesterday, I accidently brought only kale, half a sweet potato, and half a regular potato with my lunch. So, I essentially fasted all day until I got home. When I got home, I was STARVING and ate a lot of food. ... Read more
Doing More with Less
Wednesday, January 29, 2020      3 comments

The past week or so, I've seen a trend emerge: reducing the resources I consume, I end up with a better result. I'm currently working to reduce how much I'm spending and how much I eat. The second is obviously conductive of the first. The redu... Read more
Pushing / Lifting
Wednesday, January 22, 2020      3 comments

I'm getting back on the ball. I'm becoming more mindful of what I eat, I'm doing my best to remain positive, I'm re-envisioning what success means for me, etc. I looked back on the food that I tracked back in late 2016 and early 2017 to see w... Read more
[Ignore. Just anxiety-driven rantings]
Tuesday, January 14, 2020      2 comments

My anxiety is high today. My girlfriend had found some of my old postings on a social media site, from when we were dating last. I had approached the relationship differently last time. I never expected it to last, because she is this awesome wo... Read more
