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”

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.”

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?”
