Motivation to Diet = Hell No!

This is me being really dissatisfied. With myself and with my diet and with my exercise routine and with my schedule in general. I am feeling REALLY unmotivated to do much of anything except for lay in bed and cram my face with yummy things. Of course, this is my addiction of avoiding feelings with…

Window Shopping on Amazon.com When You Need a Boost

One of my favorite things is to “window shop” on Amazon.com or Pinterest when I am feeling bluesy. Today I am so overwhelmed with diet and work stuff that I just want to escape into a pile of books or walk down a street by myself peering into windows. Instead of blowing money or cramming…

An AMAZING Weigh-In – WHOOSH, BABY, WHOOSH!

So, for anyone who has been hanging in there with me for the last year knows that I have kinda been lamenting how I gained several pounds back after hitting my personal low of 284 pounds. Well, this morning I decided to sneak a peek at the scales and was overwhelmed with joy to see…

Day 1 Of My New Diet Commitment!

Today I start fresh! Very excited to take a fresh step back into my weight loss routine. Goals are still the same: to lose enough weight that my knees stop hurting, to feel more mobile and limber, to feel stronger, and finally, to get back into some of my super cute clothes that have been…

A Day Off of Work and “Game of Thrones”

I decided to take a day off today to try to get myself back to happy land. I’ve been feeling a little mellow lately. Some of this is because of my diet being off track and some of this is my brother being in Afghanistan. I have lots of good workout equipment here at the…

Diet Wagon!

I’m back on the diet wagon! Well, except for that blueberry scone this morning for breakfast. Seriously, I have to start back on my plan because my knees are hurting again and I’m not sleeping as well. I plan to hit the gym tonight for an hour of cardio and weights and see if that…
