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”

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”

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.”

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”
