I made a PVC barre!
Sunday, June 10, 2018      3 comments

Let me start by saying if you haven’t gone to a barre class, you’re missing out. The instructor always has a portable barre so I figured I should check amazon for one. The cheapest was $75! So off to Google I went. I found a tutorial on how to... Read more

I was so excited to have pizza on Friday after work. I tracked to have two slices which would fit in my macros. My first slice, I inhaled. I was so hungry that I ate it so quickly and didn’t even realize it until I looked at an empty plate. ... Read more

For a year I went to a hot yoga class Monday-Saturday. Injury, work schedules and other changes kept me from yoga. This week I was able to go Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and I will be able to go today after work. It has made all the difference! ... Read more

Being honest with yourself, sucks. I haven’t been feeling my best and I had to take a good hard look at myself and what I have (or haven’t!) been doing. I would make excuses, reason why, or throw a pity party for myself. I took a good hard loo... Read more

finding that feeling
Saturday, June 02, 2018      9 comments

Lately, I haven’t been feeling my best. I find myself on auto-pilot just going thru the motions each day. I daydream of things that would make me feel, something. I am numb to emotions and waiting for something to excite me. I know the key to ha... Read more

Friday, June 01, 2018      7 comments

My scale broke yesterday and I had to purchase a new one. My old scale had me weighing in at 191.4 and this new one has me at 195.4 and it’s just taunting me. I feel like my progress just POOF disappeared. But I need to stay positive and stay on... Read more
put down and step away from the junk food
Sunday, May 27, 2018      3 comments

I always imagine it’ll taste better than it does. Or it will magically fix however I am feeling and make me feel better. I glorify those mozzarella sticks, the mac and cheese, the pizza, the cheese-its, the chocolate bar, the (insert any red fla... Read more

Monday, May 21, 2018      3 comments

I have been doing the same thing since January. Same food, same habits, same routine. What worked in February no longer is working for me. At first, this freaked me out. But isn’t this life? What worked last week, might not work this week. What ... Read more

I have been running myself ragged, burning the candle at both ends. I haven’t had the motivation to work out in weeks. It’s been raining for 8 days straight. Working 6 days a week, since September has been so overwhelming. I haven’t been tra... Read more

The scale hasn’t budged in weeks. I am constantly fluctuating between the same 5lbs over and over. Full disclosure, I haven’t been eating my best nor have I been staying active. So now, I have three options: I can give up cause it’s not workin... Read more
enjoying life
Tuesday, May 15, 2018      6 comments

I went on a lovely, amazing vacation and saw my family. We went hiking, tried food from diners drive-ins and dives. We went swimming, went to sight-seeing spots and a museum. I did not track a single step or a single bite of food. By the end... Read more
