Stuck in the Suck

Stuck in the Suck

I feel like I’m stuck in the suck. Two steps forward, one step back. I wrote about the importance of the separation of food and fitness back in January of 2014. TWO years ago. Two years ago. Guyz – I’ve been battling this demon for way longer than two years, but I publicly acknowledged it two … Continue reading

Unfinished Chapters

Unfinished Chapters

I remember hitting 200.2lbs on the scale and the fear being immobilizing. I couldn’t remember ever seeing a 1 in front. For months this paralyzed me. I would teeter right at 200lbs, never once seeing that elusive 1. 200.2, 202, 201.6, always close but never quite there. I was so frustrated. So angry. So desperately … Continue reading

Finishing 2012

Finishing 2012

This is so incredibly true for me. I started SMF with a plan in 2012. I promised to finish it in 2013, but got pregnant and had my first miscarriage. I should have  gotten back on the wagon in 2014 – had a second miscarriage. In 2015 I set a bunch of healthy goals, HAD … Continue reading

Not Always Pounds

Not Always Pounds

I got insanely frustrated while I was training for the half marathon because the pounds weren’t dropping like I had expected them too. Hell, I was averaging 30+ miles some weeks. Alright, I mean, in all honestly, I lost 15lbs in 10 weeks. Which is great, right? RIGHT? I know I’m being crazy. Whatever. Bare with … Continue reading

Edamame Salad

Edamame Salad

I’ve had quite a few request on Instagram for the Edamame Salad I’ve been eating, so I thought I’d share this super simple recipe. I stumbled on it somewhere online, but honestly cannot remember where. Thangs you need: 4 cups of shelled, cooked and cooled edamame 3/4 feta cheese (I used reduced fat feta) 3/4 … Continue reading

How Do I Meal Prep?

How Do I Meal Prep?

 “I want to eat more clean but that shit takes forever during the busy week without prep.” A good friend of mine asked for some tips in the form of a post, so I’m a kind enough soul to oblige. I honestly think people try and get too fancy when they start eating clean and over … Continue reading

WTF are you doing?

WTF are you doing?

A few people have asked me wtf I’m doing recently pertaining to my “diet.” With multiple people asking me, I stopped to actually think about it. You can overlook one or two people asking, but multiple people makes me stop and think…What the fuck am I doing? I’ve gone back to the “dieting” mentality due … Continue reading

Fatkinis & Keto

Fatkinis & Keto

Hilton Head came and went much too quickly. We had a wonderful time laying by the beach, laying by the pool, keeping a constant drink in hand, and eating delicious seafood. I cannot complain. I also cannot complain about the fatkinis I saw, in fact, I would like to celebrate the amount of Fatkinis I saw! I … Continue reading

What The Scale Won’t Tell You

What The Scale Won’t Tell You

The scale won’t tell you that I went grocery shopping on Friday to set myself up for success. The scale won’t tell you that I came home from a long day of work on Friday and went for a run and was able to run up one of the hills that always leaves me panting … Continue reading

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
