Starting Over


I remembered this blog today. I haven't been here in about 4 years. When I stopped blogging in 2013 I weighed 218 lbs. I had lost about 30 lbs and was going to the gym 1-2 times a day. I was happy. I was enjoying eating healthy. I was enjoying going to the gym. I… Continue reading Starting Over

Week 4 C25K


Up until this point I haven't really been on a diet. I've been counting calories, but still eating whatever I want as long as it's within my allotment (1200-1600 calories a day). But I've been disappointed with my weight loss (compared to the amount of time I've spent in the gym) the last few weeks,… Continue reading Week 4 C25K

Weekly Weigh-in


This hasn't been a good week. I only went to the gym three times. I went a little over in calories about three days. I've just been stressed out this week and really wanted to quite the whole eating healthy thing and eat whatever I want. But I reeled myself in and only splurged a… Continue reading Weekly Weigh-in

Weekly Weigh-in


I gained weight this week. 😦 I'm pretty frustrated with this. I worked out every day this week except for Thursday. I stuck to my diet. I feel like I lost weight. And I feel like I should have lost weight! But when I stepped on the scale it said 227! I gained 0.4 pounds. My… Continue reading Weekly Weigh-in

Strength training. Help?


I haven't been skipping a day between C25K sessions. Oops. So far it hasn't bothered me though. Yesterday I ran Week 3 Day 1. It's 1 1/2 minutes of running, 1 1/2 minutes walking, then 3 minutes running, 2 minutes walking. Twice. I ran the whole thing!! I thought I was going to die. But… Continue reading Strength training.

Rock Climbing!


I have discovered a new favorite gym activity! The rock climbing wall! How have I never used this before?? It's like a treadmill rock wall. Like, it spins, so you can keep climbing for however long you want without getting too high. It was little scary at first. And every now and then I wouldn't… Continue reading Rock Climbing!

Weekly Weigh-in


I was actually excited to weigh in today. I've had a great week (aside from the milkshake incident). I've stayed well within my calorie allotment and weight watchers points. I didn't eat any of my weekly or activity points. I went to the gym 5 days for at least an hour and a half each… Continue reading Weekly Weigh-in

My milkshake…. (doesn’t bring any boys around)


Wednesday after work I went to they gym to start Week 2 of Couch to 5K. I was feeling nervous about running for 1 minute and 30 seconds, but not too much, since my last day of Week 1 went so well. I get to the gym and choose a treadmill and get started on… Continue reading My milkshake…. (doesn’t bring any boys around)

Beautiful Day


So I was off work from both jobs today. I slept in. Way in. I didn't get up until about 11:30! (Don't judge me! Lol. I rarely ever get a day off from both jobs!) When I finally rolled out of bed I took my time getting around. I watched the most recent episode of… Continue reading Beautiful Day
