No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Today is my birthday--I turned the big 3-5. Honestly, I never really understood the big freak out about getting older, but maybe that's because I feel like I am getting better with age. Haha. At 35 I am more confident in my own skin, feel strong and capable, and like where I am in life. I have an amazingly supportive husband and 2 great kids (that only drive me crazy some of the time. lol). Sure, there are always things that could be better, but I am living a pretty blessed life.…Continue
I was just wondering how long ago it has been since my weight has been where it is currently because over the last 2 weeks I have had a couple people mention that I look like I've lost weight! Well I have but was shocked that anyone noticed. So I looked at my log and it's actually been just over 2 years since my weight has been this low! And 3 years since I was where I want to be, in the low 130's. Back then I was weight lifting pretty intensely and in really great shape. Then I started…Continue
So, it's been awhile....in the past that would have meant that I fell completely off the wagon, wasn't living a healthy life, and so I was avoiding this place. Not this time! Life is just busy with 2 kids, working, and trying to spend some time with my husband. Life is also kinda boring at maintenance. In the past, I loved posting about weekly progress, sharing pictures, or talking about challenges. Now it just kinda seems like the same old boring talk all the time. However, I will try and…Continue
Things have been going well this week. Enjoying a relaxing weekend off. Back around Christmas time I set a short term goal that I wanted to lose 8 lbs by my birthday and I'll be honest I really didn't think that it would happen and now my birthday is in 10 days and I am less than 2 lbs away from that goal and it feels amazing. The 40-50 degree weather we've been having here in Northwest Iowa(in February) doesn't hurt either ;)
I hope that everyone is having a great…Continue
So its been a while and a lot has happened since I was last here. We took a couple trips last year which one included me climbing to the top of a MOUNTAIN!!!! Also got married in October. My weight loss has been going better as of late. My best friend and I are working on it together. Although that proves its own…Continue
Hello! Is anybody out there? I got to leave work early for the snow today :) I'm still at it losing weight. I'm using my fitness pal for tracking. I'm doing meal prep and using my kitchen scale and I'm sticking to it really well. However, the bathroom scale is moving in super, duper slow motion and it's starting to get frustrating. I think I might need to drop my calories down a smidge. I'm only 5'2 and I sit at a desk all day. I think I'm going to drop down a little and see what…Continue

Back in 2010 it became clear to me that I had to do something about my weight which had crept up to the mid 220's and it wasn't coming down. As a first step I decided to track what I ate and set a reasonable calorie goal. What I didn't do was commit to staying within that calorie goal so when dinner rolled around and I was almost out of calories, I'd say "Oh well! there's always tomorrow," and just eat. It certainly showed me why I wasn't losing weight.
My day is over. I'm about to get a shower and hit the hay. I did all I said I was going to do today. This morning Jason (DH) and I did our first CD from the Focus T-25 series. It was tough but we made it through. I wasn't dripping sweat as I do with Insanity, but my body, calves especially were feeling it.
I then wrote down all my food that I planned to eat for the day, accounting for calories and stuck to it all day. Jason even took a break from plowing to drive me to the store to…Continue
So cliche! New Year's Resolutions. It's a new year, a new me. Not that I don't like the current me, but in order to want to change, you must be dissatisfied with how you are now. And so...I resolve to change starting today, January 1st...what better day is there? A bonus too, since it is Sunday, again... a perfect day to start! Today I blog and make my SMART goals. Tomorrow I wake up, do T-25 and meal plan. Then at night I teach cardio dance. 2 workouts in one day won't be a bad way to kick…Continue

Since the early childhood I have always being a little bit plump. It never seemed a real problem for me as I thought that situation was under my total control. As the time showed, I was wrong. When I became older things started to go wrong and my problem with excess weight started growing together with the number of kilos on the scales.
Fitness industry becomes more popular every day and I decided not to stay aside. I found the nearest gym next to my house and…Continue
