I haven't been doing the greatest. I upped my goals this month when I only met my previous months goals by 60%. So I was feeling put down because I wasnt really ready to change my activity goals the way I did. So I sat down and spent time today... Read more
Time
Friday, July 05, 2019      3 comments

Time is such a precious thing, and I'm trying not to take it for granted. I find myself constantly saying I "don't have time" for things. Working out, meal prep, planning my day/week, etc. But the truth is that I DO have the time, I just do... Read more
Self Love
Wednesday, July 03, 2019      3 comments

I realized the other day that the reason I start a lifestyle change and don't stick to it is, in part, due to a lack of self love and self care. I don't put myself first. I don't even put myself second! I put myself last. And part of that is wha... Read more
Steps vs Activity
Sunday, June 30, 2019      2 comments

Today I had first hand proof that while step numbers prove you walk far, they're not entirely indicative of physical activity and exercise! I did 3,000 steps at a festival and didn't feel tired at all. But pushed a stroller up a hill and it re... Read more
June
Sunday, June 30, 2019      3 comments

Is it really the last day of June? Crazy that an entire month has gone by already! I can't say it's been the best start to my new lifestyle habits. I've made healthier choices in general, but I still have a long way to go. I'm looking at the po... Read more
Sunday
Sunday, June 16, 2019      1 comments

So yesterday I didn't do good on water intake. Even with my reminders, I still struggled. This morning I weighed myself and I'm 4# heavier than yesterday. I didn't eat anything bad. My calories were within my goal range, carbs were under... so ... Read more
The Wagon
Saturday, June 15, 2019      8 comments

So I've hit some bumps along my wagon journey. The local custom ice cream place is open and there are over 100 flavors and thousands of combos... So I've been indulging a little bit too much. The scale still moved DOWN, but only by 0.1# and with... Read more
Day 7!
Saturday, June 08, 2019      2 comments

Today marks day 7 for me! One week is nothing in the grand scheme, but I'm proud of myself for sticking with this for a full week! To celebrate, I just signed up for a DietBet! It's a small one - just a month long, but my goal is if I can pull ... Read more
The 20 Minute Mile
Thursday, June 06, 2019      2 comments

Today I brisk walked my mile and shaved a minute off of yesterday's time! I felt so great afterward and I had enough time that I went for a half lap around the park to make it a mile and a half walk today! The best part is that I've been increa... Read more

Happy Wednesday! I sometimes have a hard time remembering that each little change is part of a much bigger picture. I won't see results right away, an... Read more
Day 3!
Tuesday, June 04, 2019      2 comments

I'm halfway through the first week, and I already feel great! I went for a one mile walk at local park trails between patients, and I feel "good exhausted". I enjoyed it, but it emphasized how out of shape I am. Years ago, that walk would have b... Read more
Day 1
Sunday, June 02, 2019      9 comments

I've had chronic issues with my weight. I've tried fad diets, a special exercises, even battled eating disorders. I suffered from body dysmorphia when I was a teenager, and it cost me a lot of relationships and grief. I'm in a better place menta... Read more
