Pics Or It Didn’t Happen

Pics Or It Didn’t Happen

If you’re a 90s kid, you know what I’m talking about with “pics or it didn’t happen.” Well, it did happen. 4 times in fact. AND, four days ago, I wrote a post about getting my training life together and how much better I feel when I do. Since then, I’ve ran 4 times. I … Continue reading

5k Epiphany

5k Epiphany

Here it is: I am no longer an athlete…but I will be one again. It’s incredible how quickly you lose it when you don’t train all the damn time. Wow! My morning started out GREAT! I’d lost 3.2lbs and felt back on track – finally. A sense of accomplishment and confidence overwhelmed me. I didn’t … Continue reading

An open apology, my ass

An open apology, my ass

I’m clearly a glutton for punishment because I’m about to bring this up. The “An Open Apology to All of My Weight Loss Clients” letter that’s going viral. I probably shouldn’t touch this with a 10 foot pole because I’m going to piss a lot of people off. However, if you have a few minutes, … Continue reading

Before/After

Before/After

Wow! I finally did some before and after’s and I’m just kind of shocked, honestly. I mean, I know I’ve lost weight. I know I’ve lost about 125lbs, but to see side by side comparison’s is honestly – mind blowing. Talk about exciting! I am even more pumped to get this last 25lbs off of … Continue reading

Coming Soon!

I’m in the process of organizing and getting more serious about my site here – so get ready for two pretty big, exciting things! 1. I’m adding a recipes section to my site. I am such a foodie and find cooking so cathartic that I spend hours in the kitchen every day…by choice. I thought … Continue reading

35%

My official weigh in at WW on Saturday morning was 211.00. That is 35% of my highest weight lost forever. 35% – that is insane.   My first goal is to hit 199 (obviously) but I am ultimately looking to reach 175lbs as my goal weight and then focus on muscle/lifting/toning. I know for a … Continue reading

Oh Body…

I lost 4lbs this past week! FOUR! The differences? I cut out high sugar fruit and Bourbon…and kept with my training. Saturday I drank Bourbon but still got up Sunday morning and rode my 10 miles! (Horrah for sticking to training despite a belly full of bourbon and 3 hours of sleep. FML.) Regardless, the scale … Continue reading

Playing With My Food

I know, I know. Tsk tsk! But I am! I know WW is pro fruit and I would love to be pro fruit, but after looking at my tracker the ONLY thing I can possibly imagine contributing to the slow slow slow loss is the fruit/sugar content. So, this week I’ve cut out high sugar … Continue reading

Letters

I was born and raised Catholic (though no longer practicing) and at the age of 15 I was on a weekend retreat. We were given multiple letters from people in our lives to read and reflect on. I still have many of them, but I often find myself re-reading the one from my brother. While … Continue reading

Go Go Big Girl – Whatchu Gonna Do?

I just want to take a moment and pat myself on the back, an E-high 5, a happy dance….   Kevin, Alicia and I went to our 60 minute  spin class last night. There was a sub teacher and he only went 45 minutes – not the full hour. When he started cooling down at … Continue reading
