Friday, August 29, 2014      1 comments

I would say on a scale of 1-10 I would fall in the range of an 8 and slowly decreasing. I am one of those who has no control over cravings. However I gave myself an 8 because my cravings are slowly being tamed. The exercise is the key for me. ... Read more

Since today was really more of a fitness test than actually working out I decided to go for a walk carrying Hazel the whole way. We stopped at the park in front of the Y and I decided to rest underneath an oak tree while she played in the grass.... Read more

I started out last week with only a couple goals in mind. I wanted to not nibble on croutons, breadsticks, or Andes mints at work; go at least two days without eating desserts (I don't really stop or use moderation with those); eat healthier op... Read more

I think I've developed a new hobby. Hiking. I went out with my girlfriend yesterday and as exhausting as it was it was well worth the trip. I think I want to continue since I live in the perfect area but it isn't too easy with the baby. Working ... Read more

Day Three of getting back on track
Thursday, August 21, 2014      2 comments

I made an awesome discovery recently: my gym is only a couple blocks away from my restaurant. I was hoping to go after work today so I packed some stuff up and prepared for a quick workout before picking up the baby and after serving people plat... Read more

So yeah, I'm suddenly back after a few month's hiatus. It's been difficult: working full time to take care of my child and keep her out of daycare. It's just her and me so I rely heavily on my family for help watching her. Besides, I want her su... Read more

No I won't keep them as a reminder. I don't want to look back. I don't want that safety net. As Walt Disney would say: "keep moving forward" I'm going to maintain this healthy lifestyle. For my daughter.... Read more

Since having Hazel I've learned that I can't beat myself up over my body. What I want it to be just isn't realistic three months after having a baby. It's not even realistic for six months after having a baby. Before she was conceived I was 40-5... Read more
Less gym time, but still losing
Thursday, March 06, 2014      3 comments

I haven't been nearly as active this week as I was last week. But the good news is that between the breastfeeding, the waiting tables, the gym time I do get, and being more conscious of what I put in my mouth my weight is still steadily dropping... Read more

Monday, March 03, 2014      0 comments

My endless free time and my nineteen day workout streak. Going back to work ended and left me more sore than eighty minutes on the ellipticals so I earned two days off. I'm craving a return to it though so tomorrow I will be there again!... Read more
