So I participated in the Baltimore Color Run this morning and it was a BLAST. I was really worried that I would end up walking the entire thing, but my partner was a great motivator and really pushed me. Based upon our calculations we crossed the finish line in about 25 minutes. I did a combo of jogging / walking. It was so much fun! Each color station brought a different color bomb and at the end, the confetti falling was SO MOTIVATING. I think, *think* I…Continue
I had a really good workout week last week including some speedwork that I am really proud of. I wish my weight loss went as well as my workouts but at least my weight loss is consistent. I think society has now conditioned us to want everything big and fast biggest loser style. I work out hard and often but I don't usually get more than 0.5 - 2lbs per week. But a girl can dream. I dream of 10lb per week weight loss but it will never happen lol.…Continue
For me it is today. Frankly, since this thyroid BS I've been super depressed because I have not been able to lose weight. Yesterday I just gave up. I cried it out of my system. Sometimes you can damn tired of trying and NOT getting anywhere. I know this will be a LONG process for me. Most with hypothyroidism suffer from weight gain, loss of hair and eyebrows, dry skin etc. But I am NOT giving up. Although most start over on Monday, mine is today.…Continue
We just got back from an awesome vacation. I've really let things go over the last few months. I stepped on the scale before we left and weighed in at 144 and upon our return 146. I went to the grocery store and loaded up on lean meats, and lots of fruits and veggies! I spent some time doing some food prep to help simplify I'm ready to get back to my workout routine and to get back to the eating that makes me feel energized and healthy.
My gym paid me a huge complement. They asked me to participate in a motivation program and help others struggling with or new to exercise. There was T-shirts involved. I got to choose the color. (Highlighter Orange! MY FAVORITE!) They have the Y logo on the front and MOTIVATOR on the back.
My shirt invites people to ask questions of me and invites people to work out with me. Also if the Y knows I regularly attend a class or something that someone…Continue
Well Day 3 went decent, but not great.
Had what feels like my morning ritual of chocolate almond, banana, protein shake and had the left overs from last nights dinner. In and of itself, not bad.
Then this afternoon, I had to go to a meeting where we were doing a taste testing for new products for the next school year. USDA has change our regs and everything has to go to whole grain. Its good and its bad. The truth is whole grain breading on anything tastes like crap. Whole…Continue
So. Im back. Hi! Ive missed everyone. I don't even know last time I left a blog on here or logged in even. I think it was in January. Sigh. Idk. Stuff happened. Depression happened big time. How did Angie deal with it you ask? Lets try 16 lbs of gaining in 2 months. That is what effing happened. Fuck. I tried to put my size 9 jeans on 3 weeks ago couldn't even~ I was so damn sad and shocked. I needed that kick in my ass though. So I got on the scale I had been avoiding it because all Ive…Continue
Hey there! I am still here - lurking all of the time, just not posting as much. I am on plan and getting ready for my first running 5K on Saturday. I am doing the Color Run Baltimore and praying for sunny skies = no rain!
My weight has plateau'd at 171. I go up about 2 lbs, then lose that to go right back to 170-171. It's disconcerting to say the least. I need to get 100% serious again. I have two back to back trips coming up in May, so…Continue
Well, I have another day 2 under my belt and did well. Today I even got a 4 mile walk in with my friend - even though it was monsoon weather here. We decided we would even brave the weather regardless and were determined to walk in the rain. However, to my delight, by the time we actually met up, the weather broke and we walked without the raindrops. Kinda proud of myself for not just curling up in my pj's and staying home on this cold wet night. Yeah me.
Food wise was another…Continue
