"You must not eat very much"
Wednesday, March 03, 2010      2 comments

I've heard this a couple of times since I've been losing weight. It's probably the first thing people assume about my weight loss, that I did it by eating very little. Wrong. So, so wrong. I eat more now than I used to, like a lot.... Read more
Spring cleaning
Monday, March 01, 2010      1 comments

This weekend I cleared my closet of all my fat clothes. I'm sure Goodwill can make better use of them than I can. The only things I've kept are mostly souvenir or favorite tshirts, and a few pairs of sweats. Everything else is gone and can no... Read more
Almost feels like cheating
Friday, February 26, 2010      1 comments

My trainer has a few rules for eating, one of which is this: Fruit only in the morning (for breakfast, before 10am, whatever). I friggin love fruit. The weird thing is, before I started watching how I eat, I didn't eat much fruit at all. ... Read more
What's an inner badass?
Wednesday, February 24, 2010      2 comments

The inner badass, the person trying to get out of the cage built around it, sounds something like this. 1. "You can do better than this. It's just 5 more pounds/10 more minutes/a few more reps. What are you scared of? Why are you whimper... Read more

I was thinking yesterday (because I'm a narcissist) of what it is about being strong that I like so much. From the time I was a kid, I think when some girl said "wow, you're strong", that was the first time I felt unique, or something along tho... Read more
Mmm steak
Monday, February 22, 2010      4 comments

I think I need more steak in my life. Something lean and mean and tasty. My trainer believes I might not be getting enough iron in my diet. I suppose that's possible, since I stopped eating red meat, don't really try to eat a lot of iron-rich... Read more
Tracking again
Friday, February 19, 2010      0 comments

I tracked my food this morning for the first time in months. I'm not so concerned about the calories, but I'd like to see just how well I'm balancing all my nutritional requirements. I know I need the carbs and protein to fuel the tougher ... Read more
Time to let go
Thursday, February 18, 2010      0 comments

I should really just dump my "fat" clothes. All the clothes that I can't actually wear because they fall off, they all just take space in my closet. I have bins full of them, and a bunch more I need to evaluate to see what still fits. I n... Read more
Weight training = evil goodness
Wednesday, February 17, 2010      0 comments

Every damn time I work with my trainer on a weight training day, I gain a couple pounds the next day. Obviously it disappears later in the week, but wow. No wonder people get freaked out by the scale. Every little thing makes your weight fluc... Read more
Ramping up
Monday, February 15, 2010      0 comments

Sometimes I think my trainer is more motivated for me to lose weight than I am. I know that's not actually true, but damn he pushes hard. After my illness I'm ready to get back into everything hardcore. My trainer's given me new homework ... Read more
Hard to believe I look that different
Friday, February 12, 2010      0 comments

When I was in high school, I wasn't overweight. I have low self-esteem, but not about my looks. To some degree, even while I was gaining weight, I never really saw myself as fat or unattractive. I always had the self-image of me in high schoo... Read more
Not enough hours in the day
Wednesday, February 10, 2010      0 comments

Lately, it seems like there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything I'd like to do fitness-wise. Although I've currently stopped Krav Maga, I've added Yoga into my mix now. This means the following: Every day - morning cardi... Read more
Sometimes I forget
Tuesday, February 09, 2010      0 comments

Sometimes I forget just how much better I feel after my morning workout. I'll wake up sore, cold, or tired, and I'll be tempted to just stay in bed until I have to get to work. This morning I managed to force myself to the gym, and I'm gla... Read more
Almost back to normal
Monday, February 08, 2010      0 comments

As of my last two training sessions, for the most part I seem to be back to normal. I can push myself like I did (aside from the occasional coughing spree), and as long as I eat enough, I have the energy to get through the entire workout. ... Read more
I may actually be going insane
Wednesday, February 03, 2010      2 comments

It's been over a week since my last (halfass) training session. It was halfass because I was coughing and couldn't breathe correctly, which resulting in me puking after only the second set of my circuit. Not even halfway done and my trainer ha... Read more
