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’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
A whole PECAN pie last week. Well in 3.5 days to be exact. And I loved it and hated it all at the same time. Seriously WTF is wrong with me! Pie for breakfast? YES. How about pie for lunch? YES, please. And would you like pie for dessert after dinner? Uhm, (raising hand), yes!… Continue reading Confessions of a fat kid – I ate a whole pie.
Let’s play a little catch up. About 15 weeks ago, I said, I’m done. Too fat. I don’t like it. Need to get to work. Eat better. Work out consistently. Focus. And instantly, I was awesome at life and lost 50 lbs in 2 months. WRONG. But I did get to work instantly and started… Continue reading 15 weeks in. Busy. Tired. Repeat.
Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor. I don’t have a background in health and fitness. I just have real life experience, determination, and I read a lot. Who doesn’t love to see progress? It’s part of what makes us human. Do something and get results. Sadly, we are an instant gratification society. We want it now.… Continue reading Makin’ Gainz, Makes Me Happy!
Everyday is You vs. You. Not you vs. them. Not you vs. her/him. How are you going to compete with yourself today? If you’ve been following along, I write about healthier living and fitness. So this YOU vs. YOU is focused on just that. But it applies to all aspects of life. If you’re always… Continue reading You vs. You
Good morning, afternoon and evening. Who knows when you’ll be reading this. But here I am. TEN WEEKS IN… and SIX whole years for CrossFit and CrossFit Boom. I’ve been around for a while. And although, at my current state of fluff, you’d take one look at me and not believe it’s been 6 years,… Continue reading 10 Weeks In… But I’m In This for the LONG Haul!
Oh if I could just win the lottery and not have to worry about a job, bills, and whatever other expenses; eat what I want, workout 5 hours a day, etc… LIFE would be so much easier. Right? I’m sure someone out there could tell me otherwise but I don’t know that life, so it’s… Continue reading Finding Balance Not Perfection
If you’re not a worker-outer-er… (yes I know how wrong that is, but that’s how my brain functions. WORKER-OUTER-ER) then you may not know how freakin good it feels to get better at your fitness! I’m a competitive person by nature and I really don’t mind working out. But when I joined CrossFit, oh so… Continue reading I’m here for the GAINS!
This isn’t a feat of athleticism for most, but for me it’s a start. Finally… (and it’s been a really, really, really long time) I jogged/shuffled a full 400m without stopping. It may not happen again soon, but it happened. And that my friends is progress! After that run our coaches tried to kill us… Continue reading 400m… more than a walk!
