You're hot then you're cold, you're yes then you're no
Thursday, June 19, 2014      1 comments

This seems to be the story of my life. I'm super terrible at the stick-to-it-ness part of goals. The light at the end of the tunnel is that I view diet and exercise as a life style thing and not a "I just wanna fit into this bikini by July" thin... Read more
Baby steps

It's good to be more mindful of things I do and eat. I am getting healthier and more fit every day with small changes, compromises, smart swaps, and little victories. My boyfriend is amazing because he backs me in everything I do, and volunteere... Read more
Getting back on the wagon
Tuesday, February 11, 2014      3 comments

Well. It's been quite some time since I was last here. Winter is always a challenge for health & fitness, because I love to run outside. A treadmill just isn't the same. So I struggle with staying motivated to work out. I almost quit my gym memb... Read more

So my third 5K is this Sunday! I can hardly believe it, it happened so quickly. My best pal and workout buddy BH and I have been stepping up our game, running for 31 minutes Monday, 33 minutes Wednesday, and will run 35 minutes Friday. Hopefully... Read more
Little steps towards big goals

I'm finally seeing little results from things I've been trying to do consistently. 1. My size 8 jeans have remained loose for months now. 2. I am approaching my third 5K in Colorado! (and ever) 3. I can still run for 30 minutes, albei... Read more
Tackling the fourteeners: 3 down, 50 to go
Monday, July 22, 2013      1 comments

Almost one year ago I moved to the great state of Colorado. And with the move came loftier fitness goals, including learning what a "fourteener" is. It is in fact any peak which is higher than 14,000 feet, and the state of Colorado has 53 of the... Read more
Officially a yoga believer
Tuesday, April 23, 2013      1 comments

I've tried the occasional yoga video once in a while, and always just thought of it as slow stretching and balance. After a talk with a friend who is considering 'hot yoga' in which I kind of made fun of them, I got told all the benefits of yoga... Read more
Gotta start somewhere!

For the past few years I've been getting more and more interested in fitness. I started trying running occasionally, started reading fitness articles voraciously, started cooking better, etc. Moving to Colorado really kicked it up a notch for se... Read more
Wait a week
Friday, January 25, 2013      3 comments

After lots of observation, I think my body takes about a week to react to things. It was during the second week of being at the gym that I started to actually feel stronger and thinner, and the scale started going down. Now about a week after la... Read more
Muscle soreness

Due to a confluence of events I forgot/did not know about, I won't be able to make it to the gym today. Which may be a good thing, because I am feeling super sore. Yesterday I was tired from the aqua thing, but I didn't realize how much so until... Read more

So I went to the gym yesterday, even though my workout buddy couldn't make it. I parked, paid, walked in the door, and... realized I forgot my gym shoes. Crap. I was wearing boots, definitely can't work out in those. I checked the group workout... Read more
Weekend Backsliding

In 3 days alone I may've undone a whole week or 2's worth of effort. Saturday - had ethnic dinner with a group of friends. We all take turns cooking one weekend a month, mine was Slovak. Very carb-heavy, the only vegetable present was cabbage... Read more
Mid-January

I've been meaning to buy a scale for a long time, and finally just went out and did it. I've always believed that feeling healthy is more important than any number, but after reading several articles about how people who regularly weigh in lose ... Read more
Staying Strong
Monday, January 14, 2013      1 comments

So I've been staying on track so far, went to the gym 5 days in a row last week! I was shocked at the lack of soreness, I expected I wouldn't be able to walk or use my arms, especially after a particularly challenging spin class. But it turns ou... Read more
New year, new goals
Wednesday, January 02, 2013      0 comments

As expected, I put on about 5 holiday pounds. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed in myself. I don't like that my favorite jeans are a bit snug, and I can feel my stomach is bigger than a scant 2 weeks ago, especially lying on my side a... Read more
