So close to halfway. So close! And it’s just a “keep on keepin’ on” situation. Blinders are on. Focus is key. I’m sticking to the program. I had intended to weigh in with the body analytics truck that was coming to our CrossFit box, but baseball schedules changed and I had to change my plans.… Continue reading Day 36/80 – Keep on Keepin’ On
I didn’t grow up in a gym. I didn’t grow up lifting weights of any sort. I played sports in school, I cheered competitively and I “worked” out at “aerobics classes” in college. I did some circuit machines in regular gyms. I may have picked up 15lb or 20lb dumbbells at a normal gym and… Continue reading I ❤ LIFTING! And you should too!
Hello ladies and gents. Where do I begin? I actually started my journey back in June, 2017 and did alright through mid-November. Then went off the rails. I started back on Jan 8, 2018 with the Advocare ONE/80 Transformation Challenge. Pretty much starting over. I had taken so many steps in the right direction only… Continue reading Day 25/80 Check-In… mid-week blues.
Day 18/80 I’ve got the attention span of a squirrel lately so bear with me. I have several things to talk about. ONE – Embracing the Suck I’ve embraced the suck and I am finding a better mental state. Bout time, I know! But I’m human. And I’m a whiny little girl baby. That’s all… Continue reading So Many Things…
15 days in. 65 days to go. I had a much better weekend than last weekend. I actually had more of a schedule and I ate more balanced meals. This meant I wasn’t left floundering at the end of the day. I’ll be honest though, Saturday evening, I had some moments of boredom which left… Continue reading Learning to Cope – Day 15/80
I weighed in. I will do measurements soon. Here’s where I stand: On Jan. 8, I weighed in at 186.3! On Nov. 15, I was 179.2. Ugh. Why do I sabotage myself?!? Today after 10 days of the Herbal Cleanse and being back on track, I’m at 183. So 3.3 pounds down in 10 days.… Continue reading Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah… Day 11/80
The weekend was ROUGH! The struggle ain’t no lie. When I don’t have a schedule I’m off my game. But I’m surviving and staying the course! Here’s where I stand: Almost done with the Herbal Cleanse portion of the challenge. ONE.MORE.DAY! Then I will weigh and take measurements. 71 days to go for the challenge!… Continue reading Day 9/80… battle of the mind
I’m doing alright ladies and gents. I’m drinking all the water, eating the right foods, and following my Advocare journal. I’m getting better on the mental “I don’t wanna” battle. I have iron-clad will power and I like it. Hehe, well maybe it’s not iron-clad but I’m sticking with the program and not testing or… Continue reading Day 4/80
Not the movie, Running Scared (with Paul Walker, great movie… watch it.), but serious running with a little fear in my whole being. Let me set the scene. CrossFit Boom is located off a business highway. There are lots of repair shops, industrial warehouses, etc. Boom’s location was a former auto shop most likely. There… Continue reading Running Scared
Monday, January 8, I will be starting the Advocare ONE/80 Transformation. It’s 80 days of following the Advocare way and taking their products set up over 3 phases. I’ve used Advocare off and on over the past several years but have never committed to something this big. I know they aren’t perfect and whatever else… Continue reading 80 days… I can do this! Right?!?
