I seem to have sort of an all-or-nothing personality. The end of 2010 found me giving it my all and having success. The first half of 2011 has been pretty much a derailing of all that success and then some. I can feel it in my thighs as they smash together when I walk. Not […]

Another week come and gone! Hard to believe it’s mid-May already! Craziness. Last week, I was in a complete funk, and I will admit, I went a little lenient with the sugary-goodness called candy. I shook myself out of it by Monday, though, and am feeling good as I have made it through those horrible […]

Reposted from my personal blog. 45 days to reach our goal. 45 days to raise enough money to save lives. 1 BILLION people do not have access to clean water. 45 days to fund a project that will help women and children spend less time walking miles and miles for {dirty} water, which will enable […]

Let me start this off by saying what a shitty-ass mood I am in. I am so grumpy and frustrated and BLAH. Not really just with my lack of weight-loss efforts, but my life in general lately. I’m feeling rather disenchanted, alone, worthless, and just sad. Enter pity party. I know I don’t have it […]

If you read my confessions yesterday, you know that things have not been pretty for awhile. {read here} BUT… Karena, Ann, and I embarked on a new sugar-busting challenge. Days 1 and 2 are done and I have been perfect and I LOVE IT. I feel like I am finally getting back in my {successful} […]

Hi! Let’s get to this dirty business. I have been a mess. Not giving a shit, depressed, you name it. I ended the last challenge at the same weight that I began it, which all things considered, was pretty much a success. So, I know that I need to focus. I KNOW THIS. I do […]

Where do I begin? Perhaps that I had a less-than-stellar performance during this challenge? {thanks, Karena, for not kicking and cussing at me} Or that I have been in a funk? Or maybe that I should be training for a 1/2 marathon for June 12th, but I just started this week? I should also say […]

Well, hello there. I see it has been A MONTH since I have written on this baby. You probably think I have been avoiding you. And you would probably be right. *cough* So, you probably remember how successful I was doing South Beach in November-Christmas. I lost 14 lbs and was feeling awesome. Then, I […]

I confess that I have been totally out of control. I have been sick. And tired. And depressed. I hate winter. I have been eating everything I know better than to eat. It’s catching up with my ass. Today, I regained control. I forced myself out in -30 degree weather. To do cardio class. Then […]
