Rock Bottom

    So if you can’t tell I seem to only be able to update this thing when I am feeling good/motivated. And If I am being honest, well it has been a while since I have felt either of those things.   The truth is it is easy to keep your fitness blog/social mediaContinue reading “Rock Bottom”

New Year new….

Anyone else feel like this? I know I do. As we enter a new year, I am feeling a mix of emotions. I feel excited for a “fresh start”. I feel hope for the future and the unknown. I feel thankful for my health, my friends, and my family. But I also can’t help butContinue reading “New Year new….”

Shifting Goals

  I am sitting in my favorite local café writing this, with a big hoodie on, my 10 year old UGG boots, and with  hot cup of butternut squash and apple soup. This can only mean one thing-it is officially ‘fall’ and I officially haven’t updated this thing since August (oops).   After my surgeryContinue reading “Shifting Goals”

On pity-parties, set-backs, and comebacks

In case you haven’t noticed, I have been quiet lately. My inspirational quotes have been sprinkled only sparingly, and there is a ton of extra room on my camera roll where my gym selfies would have been. A month ago, however, that was different. I was on top of the world. I had just finishedContinue reading “On pity-parties, set-backs, and comebacks”

Beach Bod

  Pretty much my entire life I dreaded summer.  Not because I didn’t love the sunny weather, time off from school, picnics, and ice cream. I didn’t dread summer because I loved winter and snow–I didn’t dread summer for anything summer did. I dreaded summer because of me. I dreaded summer because of the wayContinue reading “Beach Bod”

Being on a diet is hard– ( being fat is hard continued)

    This is part two of my “Being Fat is Hard” rant. If you missed part one check it out here. Welcome to my pity party. I apologize in advance for the lack of cheese and crackers and lays potato chips with French onion dip. (Omg, how good would that be right now?). It’sContinue reading “Being on a diet is hard– ( being fat is hard continued)”

I can’t 

  I can’t. I can’t exercise. I can’t get to a gym. I can’t do Crossfit- that’s for fit people. I can’t stick to healthy diet. I can’t run a 5k. I can’t finish a Spartan race. I can’t survive a Ragnar race. I can’t lift heavy weights. I can’t finish that workout. I can’tContinue reading “I can’t “

For the love of burpees

  Exactly 30 days ago I was sitting at the Cheesecake Factory with my friend enjoying a delicious cheat meal complete with margaritas, when my phone went off. My lovely cousin and tremendous supporter had messaged me about a challenge her gym was doing–30 burpees a day for 30 days. While admittedly, I hate burpees  IContinue reading “For the love of burpees”

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””
