“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..”

Food for thought: Unhealthy Vs. Fat

So here’s a topic that bothers me. Being unhealthy vs. being fat. I’ve been overweight for most of my life. I’ve always been fat. Now, there’s no reason to sugar coat it. It just is. I’m not tall, I’m not skinny. I am short and I am fat. These are facts.  Being fat describes aContinue reading “Food for thought: Unhealthy Vs. Fat”

October Goals

Holyyyyyy.(Expletive) I can’t believe its October already. Seriously September came and went. Now that it is October there are only 3 more months until 2016. 2015 has been a pretty amazing year for me, but I still want to use up these next 3 months the best that I can. I’m not ready to throwContinue reading “October Goals”

A rant on hitting plateaus, losing focus, and lame excuses.

    Okay  the point of this blog was to hold myself accountable and to actually follow through with my goals. So it is time for me to fess up. It is easy to write this blog when things are good, and not so easy when I don’t have much good news to report. I dreaded writing this but IContinue reading “A rant on hitting plateaus, losing focus, and lame excuses.”

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.”
