For the love of burpees

  Exactly 30 days ago I was sitting at the Cheesecake Factory with my friend enjoying a delicious cheat meal complete with margaritas, when my phone went off. My lovely cousin and tremendous supporter had messaged me about a challenge her gym was doing–30 burpees a day for 30 days. While admittedly, I hate burpees  IContinue reading “For the love of burpees”

Being fat is hard

I just have to let this out there, so bear with me. Being fat is hard.  As a person who has lived being fat her whole life, I can personally attest. Being fat is in its own category. You are discriminated not by some, but discriminated by all despite your sex, age, race, etc., whether intentionally or unintentionally. ByContinue reading “Being fat is hard”

“Never Miss a Monday”

  In the “Fitstagram” world, a popular mantra is “Never miss a Monday”. I wholeheartedly agree with the philosophy behind this sentiment. When you start your week off right on Monday in terms of organization, getting to the gym, eating right etc., you are more likely to continue in the same pattern throughout the week.Continue reading ““Never Miss a Monday””

Food v. Fuel, what side are you on?

    As I sit here during this “blizzard”, binge watching Netflix, enjoying my second cup of joe, I’ve been pondering a lot about this controversial food topic. “Food is fuel”. I’ve heard this so many times, seen it on countless Instagram posts and have even used it as a mantra to myself to motivate meContinue reading “Food v. Fuel, what side are you on?”

Wake me up when September ends..

  OH crap. It’s already gone. September came and went and it seemed to go by in a blink of the eye. As I sit and drink my pumpkin coffee (Yay fall!) and reflect on my September goals,  I am happy to say I have certainly hit most of them. Drink more water (100 ounces a day) GetContinue reading “Wake me up when September ends..”

September Goals

September is a great month to begin a new. Summer is tough to stick to a plan with traveling, parties, and lots of celebrations. Although I am not an advocate for excuses, it is possible, but I am not going to deny it is difficult. As this summer comes to a close, I am full ofContinue reading “September Goals”

Consistency (or lack thereof)

  Okay, so I have finally pinpointed my biggest problem. And, I’m about to get super real. To get to this point, it took a lot of denial, fad diets,  and visits to the doctor to try and diagnose me with SOMETHING , anything other than myself I could blame, or attribute my weight lossContinue reading “Consistency (or lack thereof)”

On making comebacks, lessons learned, and fresh starts

It’s been almost 6 months since my last post. 6 months way over due. I made this blog almost two years ago to hold myself accountable on my weight loss journey.And what a journey its been. I’ve had my ups and downs, highs and lows. But that’s what makes it a journey. My highs wereContinue reading “On making comebacks, lessons learned, and fresh starts”

Challenge yourself

Hello. It’s me… Just kidding.. It’s been a while since I’ve written anything. And the reason is probably due to the fact I’ve lost motivation lately. I could blame it on the holidays, but it’s almost half way through January and that excuse is just about expired. So I’ve been trying to re-inspire myself. PutContinue reading “Challenge yourself”

On “no scale November”, cheesecake, and starting over on Monday’s

It is Sunday evening, the very end of this long and fulfilling Thanksgiving weekend, and I find myself in bed eating a slice of caramel cheesecake. I never even liked cheesecake, and now all the sudden I cannot get enough. Why can’t this happen with something else, like Brussel sprouts? Okay, aside from the cheesecake, I’veContinue reading “On “no scale November”, cheesecake, and starting over on Monday’s”
