My life and the journey to self-awareness

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.

Gettin’ Trim for Summer Challenge

Unfortunately, I have temporarily sidelined with a back injury. I am (at this point) postponing the start date for my summer challenge to Monday, May 24th.

This is good news for you though, if you haven’t gotten the Jillian Michaels “The Biggest Winner” DVDs – go get them! Get ready, and we are going to get fit and trim for summer!

I’m going to rest my back and stick with easy elliptical workouts (provided I get my doctor’s okay, I will find out for sure in the morning) and hopefully be healed and ready to go on Monday, May 24th!

Re-focusing, again – and a fitness challenge!

So much happened to me internally after I finished my sprint triathlon almost 3 weeks ago. And none of it was what I expected. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. Most people would finish a sprint triathlon and then feel like they could conquer the world. I finished and felt like I should have done better. Good grief! Continue reading

What a difference a week makes!

I lost 2.2 lbs this week!!!!

This has been a fantastic week for me for more reasons that just the weight I lost!  I found a new app for food and exercise tracking that I like better than Daily Burn.  It’s called My Fitness Pal.  It actually shows your net daily calories.  Daily Burn doesn’t do that.  So I switched.  Continue reading
