“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”

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.”

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.”

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””
