Dieting, Keto

Okay everyone, I know my last post I was talking about Nutrisystem and how I was going to use it for my weightloss journey. But I have officially canceled my Nutrisystem subscription! Why? Because I felt like shit!! I was hungry all the time, bloated, tired, and just didn't feel good. As you guys know… Continue reading


Why Nutrisystem?

So, why Nutrisystem? In summary.... I'm lazy. I know myself well enough to know that the key to me being succesful in eating healthy is having a plan. Having my meals planned out and preprepped and ready to go. If I'm left to make a decision on the fly, it's usually not a healthy one.… Continue reading Why Nutrisystem?


Jumpstart to Skinny Week 1 Days 1-3

I finished reading Jumpstart to Skinny and started the plan on Wednesday, after doing all the prep work on Tuesday. I can't say I've been successful... I took Thursday off completely since it was the Fourth of July and I went to a barbecue. I definitely cheated quite a bit yesterday. And I haven't been doing… Continue reading Jumpstart to Skinny Week 1 Days 1-3



First off, I would like to apologize for not posting at all lately. I have been extremely busy with work and school and life in general. 😛 I'm sticking to my diet though. (Mostly.) I'm not eating as strictly as I would like, but I'm tracking all of my food and staying within my calorie… Continue reading Brrrrraaaaaiiiiiinnnnnsssss!


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

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


Sore Today, Strong Tomorrow!

On Wednesday Heidi and I did our first day of strength training! We used all the arm machines in the gym at the highest weight we could handle (which wasn't a lot!). We did two sets of 10 reps. It was hard! I didn't realize how weak I was! Stronger than Heidi though, which was… Continue reading Sore Today, Strong Tomorrow!

Dieting, exercise

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.
