I used to weigh in every week. I used to count all my calories and track my proteins, fiber, etc everyday. I used to peruse Spark and the blogs and my friends' status updates regularly for inspiration. I used to work out 6x a week, at least. ... Read more

I have never worn a bikini in public until this trip to Jamaica. Why did it take me until AFTER losing over 100lbs to wear one?! I have been working my butt off, literally, to reshape my body. Lifting, running, boxing.... Some peo... Read more

I hit a bump in the road about 2 weeks ago. I was flying high from 100 lbs lost. Flying high from my half marathon and from my 10k PBs. I was trying to find a balance of carb loading before my races/long runs, and dipping my toes dangerously b... Read more

So. Last weekend I blew my half time out of the water, shaving 18 minutes off my previous time to come in at 2:25:24. I was super stoked with that time! I also took a minute off my 10k training run time! It was a super good run; I felt ze... Read more
