A Revalation
Tuesday, December 14, 2010      1 comments

So I was reading a Spark People article the other day about four steps to actually changing your ways. I don't know why, but the article finally made me realize that I haven't actually been learning from my past weight loss failures. I've always... Read more
Why won't anyone take this seriously?
Saturday, December 11, 2010      2 comments

Do you ever feel like no one else around you understands the constant struggle of losing weight and trying to stay healthy? It's harder for me now than ever because I'm living with people who have never had to struggle with this problem. They al... Read more
Stomach Bug, Ick
Sunday, October 10, 2010      1 comments

So of course if it's not one thing it's another. After my week of slacking off I'm finally excited to get back to the gym then I get hit with an awful stomach bug two days later. Luckily for me it wasn't even 24 hours, but I missed two days at t... Read more
Back from Vacation
Thursday, October 07, 2010      1 comments

Ok so I didn't actually go anywhere for this vacation...including the gym. I missed an entire week because I was home alone with no schedule and for me that's always a bad thing. Luckily for me (as lucky as you can be when vacation ends) vacatio... Read more
Tracking Results
Friday, September 24, 2010      1 comments

So I realize that I should have taken measurements other than my weight before I started meeting with my trainer because now I have no way of tracking my results. I haven't really lost any weight, but I can tell that my body is changing. I'm str... Read more
Stupid Knee
Thursday, September 23, 2010      3 comments

My knee has been bothering me since I started my new workout routine. It would usually be aggravated by a lot of deep bending...squatting, lunging, stuff like that. I didn't want to deal with it because knee problems kind of freak me out. Well o... Read more
A Down Day
Monday, September 20, 2010      1 comments

Sometimes, even if I've had a good day otherwise, at the end of the day I just feel down. Sometimes I bring it on myself by thinking of sad things or drudging up unhappy memories. But sometimes I'm just down. It's the worst when you're not quite... Read more
Sparking Other Goals
Sunday, September 19, 2010      0 comments

So I decided that because I hate when I break a spark streak that I am going to use Spark People to help me accomplish other, non health related goals in life. Currently I'm working on a project that needs to be done by Christmas. It's a lot of ... Read more
50 Spark Points A Day
Saturday, September 18, 2010      2 comments

So I started a new goal without really realizing it at first, but I've been trying to earn at least 50 spark points a day for the past few weeks. It isn't a huge goal, but some days are easier than others and it has really gotten me using some o... Read more
Holiday Time!
Friday, September 17, 2010      1 comments

As the holiday season approaches (in the store the other day I saw Christmas stuff out next to the Halloween stuff which was already 40% off) I of course am trying to think of the perfect gifts for family and friends. I really love giving gifts,... Read more
Why getting at least 8 hours is tough...
Thursday, September 16, 2010      1 comments

So not that this is a new revelation, but I think I have finally admitted it to myself so I can deal with it. It's hard for me to get 8 hours of sleep because I want to have a life. Right now I get up at 5:30am to go to the gym. I then spend mos... Read more
Trainer Part 3
Wednesday, September 08, 2010      0 comments

Another double day at the gym. Both Zumba and a meeting with my trainer. This is going to be the norm for me now so I better get used to it. It's hard work, but this really is the best I feel all week. My trainer always has new ways to push me a... Read more
Trainer Part 2
Sunday, September 05, 2010      0 comments

I met with my trainer yesterday for the second time and it was just as hard as I remembered. We did a totally different routine this time around which is great because I have more ideas, but can make it hard to remember everything. I asked her t... Read more
A Good Day!
Friday, September 03, 2010      1 comments

I went to the gym this morning thinking it would just be a typical day, but it was actually pretty awesome. First I signed up for a longer membership which makes me feel good, plus it means I've actually been going to the gym for a month which f... Read more
Trainer Part 1
Sunday, August 22, 2010      0 comments

Met with my personal trainer today. She's pretty nice but intense which is exactly what I was hoping for. I spent an hour with her and I'm pretty sure I've never sweat so much in my life. The workout was strength training at a fast pace so it al... Read more
