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

Jumpstart to Skinny Week 1 (Recipes and Grocery List)


I want to start off by saying, please buy the book. I'm only posting these lists and recipes to make the diet easier to complete. The book is amazing and gives you all this information (minus the grocery list) but it's not organized quite as well and I found that doing this prep work to… Continue reading Jumpstart to Skinny Week 1 (Recipes and Grocery List)

Update: PCOS and Fire


Okay, so I haven't posted since the beginning of July. I was doing great on my Jumpstart to Skinny and was really excited about it. And then my house caught on fire. Yes, you read that right. On Sunday, July 7, at about 7 am, my husband and I were woken up by the power… Continue reading Update: PCOS and Fire

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

NOTE: I thought that I posted this last week, but it just saved as a draft.... Oops. So this post is extremely late. I had a very very busy week!

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

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!

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
