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.”

When the scale just wont moveeeee: KEEP GOING.

I’ve been having such issues with that damn box lately. My diet has been on point, my exercise game has been stepped up, and I’ve been drinking my gallon of water a day. I even overcame my weekend temptations even though this past weekend was a very difficult one! But alas, the scale just won’tContinue reading “When the scale just wont moveeeee: KEEP GOING.”

Failure to plan is planning to fail…

My biggest issue lately has been failing to plan… my meals. Therefore, I am going hungry which is not a good thing. Because nothing good comes from being haaangry. I don’t prepare for the day or week, then when I’m hungry I don’t have anything I am “allowing’ myself or choosing to eat so IContinue reading “Failure to plan is planning to fail…”

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?”

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!

Half weigh there….

Hi I’m Amanda, and in case you forgot, here’s my story. When I began my weight loss journey at the end of last summer I had big goals. I had just graduated from college and knew I needed to make a change. I was uncomfortable, and very unhappy. I had left my comfort zone andContinue reading “Half weigh there….”

Challenges…accepted.

Okay so I got over my little  binge. (okay, big binge) from the holidays and what not. The holiday lbs are gone and I’m back to the drawing board. I feel good, and my clothes are definitely fitting better. Now its time to get into beast mode before I get too comfortable again. I doContinue reading “Challenges…accepted.”

The first step is…

making smart decisions. Like putting the ice cream down. Or watching your ice cream fall off the plate and on to the floor and make the conscious decision not to scoop any more. Whatever your first step is in getting back on the right track is, make sure you make it count.  Everyone slips up,Continue reading “The first step is…”

Bye, Bye Bready

  It’s not goodbye—it’s see-ya later. Some people have a sweet tooth…but my guilty pleasure is bread, and pasta, and you know those carbs that are “bad” for you (but good for the soul.) Call me crazy, (or Italian) but seriously,I’d rather have an extra roll with dinner than a piece of cake or cookieContinue reading “Bye, Bye Bready”
