No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Ok, ok. The pity party is over. Thank you for all the kind words on my pity party post from last night. The scale sucks sometimes, but I'm ready to move on and do what needs to be done. Otherwise, I know it will just keep moving in the wrong direction.
My mood was brightened today while doing upper body at boot camp and noticing that my shoulders are coming back in. Never did I know that I wanted nice shoulders until I had them. All along I thought it was the biceps that would make…Continue

Not usually, that is, but right now at this moment, things are feeling good. Settled. Ready. Waiting with a sense of anticipation.
Tomorrow starts the spring semester for both Coach CutiePie and I. CCP will be starting *hopefully* the last semester of his Bachelor's. I'm really hoping he's gotten everything straightened out to finish things up so that we can move on from this. I'm starting semester 4 out of 6 of my Master's.
This semester is going to prove…Continue
who has this as an app on their phone!? Its AMAZING! It just gives you a HUGE variety.. little mini workoutssessions all the way up to full on session like 40 minutes . Its fun i get through them Im a SWEATY MESS when Im done. I just started it last night,, tonight was the second and it was just as awesome. Its a lot of fun! Im also completely obsessed with My Fitness Pal. Im becoming that obsessed lil monster I used to know and love! Yay! So I burned 100 calories doing a twelve minute…Continue
I wish I didn't care as much about the number as I do. I know all the things that people say to make other people feel better about the scale. And while I have said them (and ultimately know they are true), it still totally sucks when you work hard and the scale doesn't cooperate. I was up 0.4 at weigh in (yes, I am aware that is not much...that it is just a trip to the bathroom, but still, it's the wrong direction). When I'm up because I deserved it, it doesn't bother me. But when I have…Continue
Just before the new year, I went back and reviewed my old posts and began some self reflection; in that I realized that I have really learned and implemented a lot along the way and made progress in many areas and not necessarily on the scale. (But I see that changing in 2016).
Continuing in that self-observation/reflection, I saw a preview for tonight's Biggest Looser episode and I realized, that I haven't watched that show in years. Why? -- well, mainly because, when I was…Continue
lol literally. Been kickboxing and trying to keep my food in check. Most of the time its been alright. I got sick this weeknd that sort of blew it for the workouts but Im feeling better tonight. I did 40 minutes of Jillians Kickboxing. I was up in weight last time I got on the scale I cant even remember what…Continue
Day One: 30minute, 2.2 mile run and taking it easy for week one. Will slowly rev up on week two and hopefully build consistency-to-habit routine.
Intake: 2100 calorie/day.
Scientific Philosophy: Output must be > than intake. Calorie output is burned more than calorie intake with eating five times a day.
Its been a very productive day as it relates to healthy life style.
Got a 2.08 mile walk in early this morning with a friend followed by a very healthy breakfast. 1 Egg, 1 Sandwich Round (I was out of Ezekiel bread ... boo), 1/4 avocado, salsa and some grapes. Coffee of course there was coffee.
Around 1:30, I put down 2.17 mile run in as well. The weather had warmed up and the sun was shining, I just couldn't let it pass me by without taking advantage. The temps are suppose…Continue
First time blogging here! Hopefully this will be the start to helping me become more healthy and fit. I need to lose 12-15 pounds by the end of May this year, and it seems like no matter what I do, my weight is not decreasing. I have been on the scale on and off for the past 3 months, and "Nata". I've decreased my carb intake and increased my fruit and veggies. I have also been trying to increase my water intake, although hard at times, since it makes me have a bladder of a 2 year old. I was…Continue
Well, I'm def in culture shock.
After literally 3 weeks off from work - I've spent this week just getting back in the swing. I will say, that I only gained 2#s while on vacation, so yeah me! While getting reacquainted with life as I know it, I have already dropped one of those vacay#s and gotten one 2.5 mile walk in. Yeah, sadly, no run this week.
Now its just to get back on my plan and begin moving forward with no looking back. I'm motivated to make 2016 the year of me. …Continue
You know what happens when I commit to tracking every bite, making better choices, and cutting back on sweet treats? I lose weight (shocker, I know!) I was quite pleased to weigh in tonight and see that I was down 2.6 pounds. This puts me 9.4 pounds above my lowest recorded Weight Watchers weigh in (pre-baby). I would LOVE to be at that weight by my daughter's first birthday, which is a little over 9 weeks away (noooooooo. slow down). It is definitely feasible, but I don't want to set myself…Continue
Hey just wanted to take a minute to blast a shout out to all the new people here on BTL. Welcome! Welcome! There appear to be so many of you that I couldn't keep up. I look forward to your new energy that you will bring.
You will certainly find support and friendship here. Remember, no one will judge you if you do not "stay perfect" all the time. In stead, you will only find encouragement to get back on the wagon quickly. Besides, there is no such thing as perfect; in case you…Continue
I did it. I finished the 5K and ran every step of the way this year! I cried at the end.....of course! Beat my time, didn't kill it, but I beat my time from last year. (Last year I ran/walked) So feeling the sense of accomplishment. No turning back now.
Next year....the 10K!!!…Continue
