Goals

Last night I attended a goal setting event at my crossfit gym, (or box if you are hardcore). I went in feeling nothing but unsure and a little malaise lately about my fitness journey. I have felt old habits and self-doubt creeping back at me. We all hit bumps and go through hard times, butContinue reading “Goals”

well, uh, hello July.

   June was a wicked fast month, am I right? Reflecting back on my June goals I’ll be pretty honest, I did not stick with most of them. This blog is to hold myself accountable, so I guess its time to fess up. I did not lose 6 pounds, I didn’t run as much asContinue reading “well, uh, hello July.”

May Goals

So, 5 months ago already, I made a a list of  goals in January when I began my new year “resolutions” and took on a bunch of challenges to get me motivated, including my gym’s 90 day Biggest Loser Competition. I was very unhappy, but I was ready to do something about it and makeContinue reading “May Goals”

Weekend Warrior

As I often take Monday’s to reflect on the weekend..since its a pretty common Monday morning question at the office, I’ve realized my responses are changing. Typically I would spend Sunday’s as a day of regret, and marking Monday as my day of retaliation against the weekend, back to the grind, and renewal of promisesContinue reading “Weekend Warrior”

Words are powerful…am I right?

Yesterday was a whirlwind of emotions for me. First, I was ecstatic, because when I woke up and weighed in I was at my goal weight for my March Dietbet. With $150 on the line, and not the easiest time dropping numbers this month, it was really surprising to me that I won. Then, IContinue reading “Words are powerful…am I right?”

Forever ..Sometimes.. not always last in Gym class.

Wow, it has been 9 months since I created this blog! It all started with my first and favorite post: Call me the little engine that could of Crossfit, or the underdog, or lost and misguided, but no matter what you call me I am proud to call myself a Crosffiter. I have drank theContinue reading “Forever ..Sometimes.. not always last in Gym class.”

March Motivation

So the day was pretty much over by the time I realized it was March 1st. Maybe it was the 5 inches of snow in what feels like the longest winter ever (I probably say this every winter) or maybe it’s because I just don’t pay attention to things.(You can decide, but i’m going withContinue reading “March Motivation”

If you don’t hashtag did it even happen?

It’s no secret that I’ve been trying to lose weight, (Hence this blog) but for me the biggest thing is accountability. If I open up about my journey and announce to the world my plans…..well hey now I have to do it right? I found when I have more people to be “accountable to” IContinue reading “If you don’t hashtag did it even happen?”

“Trust the Process”

Throughout this weight-loss journey, I have learned this as a valuable lesson… I now am beginning “Trust the process.” When I finally gave up the word diet and starting looking at this as a lifestyle change, I’ve found I’ve been staying more consistent and seeing better results. In my past weight loss attempts I would beContinue reading ““Trust the Process””

results are in…

and I won the diet bet! After two consistent friends’ birthday weekends I was so happy to have pulled it off. Definitely a fun little incentive to lose weight, and an excuse to treat yourself to something with the winnings!
