No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Well the scale has been going up and down the same five pounds all week ending with a two pound gain at this morning's weigh in. I am not happy about it, but at the same time I realize that there are reasons behind the gain that I just can not control ~ like increasing the steroids for two more weeks due to a sinus infection and finally feeling up to eating again after a terrible stomach bug. Unfortunately there are also reasons behind the weight gain that I can control and I am not doing…Continue

Hello, This is my first entry. I know my page and description are all doomy-gloomy, but I am honest. That is how I feel at the moment, but thankfully moments change. I will - maybe even later today - feel motivated and have some hope, and as time goes by i am sure the visual (avatar etc) will reflect that, but today is not one of those.. well lets say this moment. I am going to try to change that. I do not feel well at all today, as in my body feels sick and my mental state is confusing…Continue

Since I missed a couple of weeks while sick I can't seem to get my mojo back. I am much slower and have much less stamina. Could it be the cold? Could it be the layers? Could it be I'm incapable of getting any better at anything? It could be any of these things I hate to say it but it might be time for some speedwork on the treadmill BLEH! I hate this feeling cause it makes me want to be alone and run and sulk. I…Continue
Actually, it is not that bad at all. I weighed in this morning, having skipped Thanksgiving week mind you, and I was up .2. I'll take it! Especially considering the fact that earlier in the week it was up a few pounds over my last weigh in.
They are calling for potential crappy weather this weekend so I hope to get some decent AP's working around my house or treadmillin' it. Here's to the weekend!
Hi, I am new here! Above is the link to my original blog post entitled "Happy One Month Fitness Anniversary to me!". As I look back 14 months later, I went on to lose a total of 17 lbs, but have slowly put back on 7 of those 17. Going forward, I was browsing websites and blogs to find some motivation to help me get back into it…Continue
I was semi-worried about today’s weigh in. Of course there was Thanksgiving last Thursday, then leftovers (NSV: I did not give in to leftover pie!) for days. Saturday we went out to a sports bar to watch college football and I had a few of the house special margaritas which are pretty huge; plus we split a spicy nacho appetizer, definitely a cheat day. However the Skinny Snowman Challenge started on Sunday and I had committed to a 2 hour Zumbathon, so I was right back on track. I did not…Continue
Today my cutie son was wearing his favorite batman shirt
I asked him if he had Batman muscles and he totally flexed--with grunts and all!…
Hey there my fellow BTL champions! I just wanted to drop a quick hello and let you know I have not forgotten you. I am still here, working hard. I didn't have the best Thanksgiving week. In fact, I skipped weighing in all together because I just couldn't wrap my head around dealing with that scale. It is a new week. I kicked off Sunday by hitting the ground walking (not running - yet!) and I will see where I am at on Friday morning. My foot is feeling better so I took off the medical…Continue
Things are looking good! I had a loss during Thanksgiving and I think that is pretty good! I guess getting re-focused on my goals was all that I needed!
I have been sore from all the lifting but it's kind of a nice reminder that I'm doing something effective! My hamstrings and shoulders were bothering me last night, so I treated myself to a nice hot bath with Epsom salts and essential oils! Today I will be working chest and abs.
So I am up about 1.4 a little less than I expected but I still feel like I could have done better. Well I guess I know I could have done better. This winter I feel very lethargic and like I just am constantly sick and winter has only been here like 5 minutes!!! I am going to a step class today but I can't say I am looking forward to it. This week so far I think I am only doing better cause I couldn't make myself eat for 3 days and when I could it was soup. Although I did make myself a really…Continue
I dont even remember when I weighed in at 152 i think that was like 2 weeks ago. Im down to 144. What kills me about this... is that idk Ive been just waiting to hit that 139 mark for how many months? It really makes me feel bad Ive even been down to 140! One more lb and I couldnt hit it I just gained instead what is that??:( I know it has everything to do with my eating choices and working out. Most of the time yes Im doing great. I really failed this past month. I should be a lot…Continue
Ok, that title might be a little over-dramatic. I'm not really brokenhearted. I haven't shed any tears. But I do feel like I am going through a break-up. My beloved trainer that I have worked with 3 times a week for over a year is moving to a different gym! I get that it is the best move for him from a professional standpoint and I don't blame him at all--but I am so sad I won't be able to work with him anymore. He has been fabulous through my whole journey. When I first started his…Continue
Just saw this and thought it had some good pointers for avoiding weight gain during the holidays.
I know I'll continue to at least get in my morning walk.
Hey everyone!! I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving, and contrary to what I would usually say, I will say that I hope you all took the day to STUFF your faces!! I know I sure did! Mine was a little bit more guilt free because I was able to manage getting to the gym Thanksgiving morning before the binge eating commenced! It was a funny predicament to be in last week because going into last week I was down 91 lbs, thus I wanted to have a monster week and hit my TRIPLE DIGITS!!! Well, I…Continue
Back to basics and the traditional Tuesday weigh in post. I won't report toward a loss or a gain this week as it's my first week "reporting in."
About 20 - 25 pounds above my healthy, happy weight range. Here. We. Go.

Mark this day down in history. I think this may be the first time in my entire life that I LOST weight during the holidays. My weigh in tonight showed me down 2 pounds (this was over 2 weeks since I was out of town last week). My mom joked that she would disown me if I lost weight after spending a week at her house for Thanksgiving because I would ruin her reputation as a good cook. Oops! Haha. Good thing she was just joking.
Things I am proud of this week:
1. I ate my…Continue

I don't want the shinny kind of exercise pants more the yoga legging type to wear with a longer shirt and that has a some compression to them? anyone have some they love and can tell me how they fit and where to buy them? we r getting ready to go to mexico for 2 weeks and i have no decent clothes to wear. and any advise on other clothing that fits and hides good:( thanks
I'm so glad to be feeling focused again! Yesterday was leg day and it felt so good. I feel it today! I did great yesterday with getting my food prep done and cleaning the house.
I put some new workout clothes on me Christmas wish list which I'm really excited about. All of my yoga pants are too big now, I'm constantly pulling on them. I've never tried compression apparel but, I have them on my list to try, I've heard great things.
I got a couple new caffeine teas: Sugar…Continue
December 1 - Day one of Couch to 5K.
Back in October I downloaded the C25K app on my iPhone with the thought that after the Avon Walk, I would focus on learning to run a 5K. Only I never put it to use. Until today. As I was sitting around on my couch I finally decided at 8pm that it would be a good idea to get on the treadmill and do Day 1 of the C25K. I have the "Drill Sargent" as my coach. He's a hoot.
I made it through pretty good. Actually better than I thought I…Continue
