My life and the journey to self-awareness

Wednesday Weigh-In

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! I had a wonderful date with my knight (he took me to see Sex and The City 2!), and we went to 2 parties.

I’m going back to the Wednesday weigh-ins. I just love being able to link up with my girls from the Sisterhood, so I just can’t bring myself to move the day. Continue reading

Leaving the land of eternal funk

I am tired of complaining. I am tired of writing about being unfocused. And if I’m tired of it, I’m guessing you all must be ten times more tired of reading about it.

I had a very eventful (read stressful) April. I completed my first sprint triathlon and finished my 3rd year law school finals. Since then, I’ve been just twisting in the wind. I’ve got no focus, no direction. And let me tell you, my Itty Bitty Shitty Committee has staged a successful coup, and are almost incessantly and very loudly screaming. Drowning out any glimmer of motivation and positively I try and hold on to. Continue reading

Finally under the average!

But, let’s be clear – I’m definitely not a below average woman!

I am so excited to be back in the 130’s! I lost 4.6 lbs this week (I swear I ate, I don’t know what I did differently)! My weight is 138.0!! Even though I’m so excited about this loss, this has been a very rough, emotional, stressful and all around shitty week. Continue reading

Picking myself up

This was not a good week for me. I started down a slippery slope on my birthday. I put a stop to it yesterday. Enough is enough already!

I started the Spring Fling challenge on 2/23/10. The challenge is 8 weeks long and I set a goal to lose 8 pounds. Right now, it’s not looking like I’m going to reach that goal, but don’t think I’m gonna stop trying! Continue reading

Shreddin’ through!

I lost 1.2 lbs this week!  Woohooo! (Oh, and today is my 37th birthday!  Can, I assume my Dooney & Bourke purse with matching wallet is in the mail? LOL)

The Shrinking Jeans 30 Shred challenge is over!  I made it!  I shredded 30 consecutive days! I am really proud of myself for sticking it out.  I set a goal at the beginning of the month, that I would complete this challenge – and I did!! Continue reading

I’ve completed the 30 Day Shred challenge! Post-shredded pix

30 days ago, I told everyone I was starting the Shrinking Jeans 30 day shred challenge. Well, guess what? (I know, the title gave it away…) I did it! 30 consecutive days of Jillian Michaels 30 day shred!

I am so proud of myself for sticking with this challenge and finishing it strong! I have to be honest, I don’t feel (or see in the pictures) that much of a change, but just completing a goal I set for myself is huge! Continue reading

Up but definitely not out!

I gained .4 lbs this week.  Grrrr.  However, I was surprised by an early arrival of my monthly “visitor,” so we’ll just chalk the gain up to that!  Man it’s “fun” being a chick!

I’ve shredded for 23 days in a row!  Only 7 days left!  (I haven’t shredded yet today, but I will!  I’m too close to the end to give up now!)  I’m sooo ready for this challenge to be over! Continue reading

In da Groove

I lost 1.4 lbs this week!  This is the EXACT same amount I gained last week… 

I’ve shredded for 17 days in a row!  I can’t believe it!  I’m actually really proud of myself!  Only 13 more days to go!  Which means only 14 days until my birthday! I’ve really been wanting a new Dooney and Burke purse and matching wallet… shhh don’t tell anyone tho, ‘k? 🙂 Continue reading

My Fitness Big 3

At the beginning of this year, I told Daniel that I wanted to log 250 miles of running in 2010.  I just looked at what I’ve logged so far this year, and if I keep up what I’m doing, I will run nearly 400 miles by the end of the year!  Wow!  Last year, I set a goal to try new things – things that were outside my comfort zone, things I may not like or be good at.  I just wanted to try.  That was my goal.  Continue reading

Confused – but not defeated!

I gained 1.4 lbs this week… 😦

This week has been difficult for me in non-weight loss related ways.  I’m feeling overwhelmed with my school schedule, the rental house we live in is having issues and issues with my 18 year old daughter.  I am guessing that the stress has gotten to me, and that is the reason for the gain this week.  I can’t think of any other reason.  I stayed within my calories and I exercised…  Continue reading
