I’m quick to tell you that it’s great to have a village of support but that you also need to be able to stand alone. Double-edged sword, I know. But there’s truth in it. While the village may be there to cheer you on and help you, sometimes it’s only at their convenience. Once a… Continue reading Sometimes… it does take a village!
…I decided to reclaim my health and boy has it been a journey. It’s been hard, it’s been easy, it’s been terribly inconvenient, it’s been sloppy, it’s been simple and it’s been complicated. Basically, it’s been all the things! A year ago I declared to the world I was tired of being FAT. Click here… Continue reading Well boys and girls… It’s been ONE year!
Y’all… guess what? I ran consistently. Well I jogged, I should say, which is better than a shuffle or whatever that movement is that is right below a shuffle is called. Because that is me on a daily. You can ask anyone at CrossFit Boom, that my run/jog is probably slower than a fast walker!… Continue reading Forging Ahead
So the 80 days is up. I submitted my after pictures and essay. And now I wait to see if I get the opportunity at $25K. I don’t know that my change was enough compared to others or if my essay was compelling enough to win over the judges. We’ll see. I do know, that… Continue reading Now what? The Journey Continues.
Duh. We all know this and I’m Captain Obvious. But seriously, y’all consistency is key! So I know I have at least one reader … Derrick! He’s always asking when my next post will be up. So this is for you Derrick, king of consistency and your beautiful “running” wife, Connie! I’m doing my thing… Continue reading Consistency is the Key
Well whaddya know? I’ve made it halfway! I’m not gonna lie, it’s been a bumpy road but all-in-all, I’ve done really well. Yes I’m tooting my own horn! Cause seriously, this shit ain’t a walk in the park. I’ve been hitting my calories and my macros (for the most part). I’ve been following the Advocare… Continue reading Halfway There, 40 days to go!
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!
Well Boys and Girls… by now I would have slipped, faulted, or something terrible. It’s now day 22 and I haven’t gone off the path once. Not even a tiny, teeny, little bit! That’s a first for me! I’m sticking to 1800 calories, 40/30/30 for my macros and working out at least 4 times a… Continue reading Staying Strong – Day 22/80
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…
