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

Falling in love again, with running!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I know I did! My knight and my son spoiled me all day! I couldn’t and wouldn’t have asked for anything more!

Because of my upcoming challenge (starts in one week on Monday 5/17 – and everyone is invited to join!), I am changing my weekly weigh in day to Mondays. Continue reading

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

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

Hello? Motivation… where did you go?

(Warning – there will be foul language throughout this entry. If you are easily offended by such language, please don’t read.)

Wow. I feel like total crap. I worked my ass for the entire month of March to get shredded. Every friggin’ day for 30 days. And I’ve probably gone and fucked it all up in the last 6 days. Damn, I suck.

I gave myself a free day of eating for my birthday. Well, actually I started out tracking, but got told by my friends, that calories don’t count on my birthday. It was an easy sell. (For the record, I do not blame my friends, this is all me.) I wish I had more self control and will power. But I don’t. Why don’t I? Other people do. Where’s mine for fuck’s sake? 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

Can’t it just not be so complicated?

Holy diet book hell!

I really want to know and understand how many calories each day I should be eating.  Have you ever tried to find that information on the Internet?  There are millions of sites, and they all have different information.   So, today, out of sheer frustration, I decided to go to a book store and look for a nutritional book.  What I found was completely overwhelming. Continue reading
