Weekend Wrap-Up

Weekend Wrap-Up

So I had big plans last week to participant in that non-scale victories link-up on Thursday and a Flashback Friday post on Friday and it never happened. Sometimes working from home on Thursday and Friday is a dream, and sometimes it’s the hardest thing ever. I love the extra time I get to spend with … Continue reading

Bears and Balance

“Hey, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you.” – Big Lebowski This week is eating me alive. I can’t believe it’s only Wednesday. I’m so happy that tomorrow is Thursday because it means a day off from boot camp and no commuting to work. After my mini weight loss plateau, I … Continue reading

Boo Friggin Hoo

Boo Friggin Hoo

I’m grumpy today. This is officially a bitch session. I’m having a hard time staying motivated today. Despite working my butt off and making good food choices 99% of the time, the scale has not budged in the past week. I’ll admit that I’ve had a few glasses of wine here and there. There is … Continue reading

I Want, I Want, I Want

I Want, I Want, I Want

One of my problems with weight loss is that I have body dysmorphic disorder. I shouldn’t say that. I don’t really and I shouldn’t make light of what is probably a serious problem for some people. However, I think I am way hotter and sexier than I actually am. Like, I KNOW that I need … Continue reading

Bed size: Queen.  Brian keeps suggesting we get a King, but I keep telling him it doesn’t matter how big our bed is, I … Continue reading

Baby Steps and Bullet Points

This morning was the mid-point weigh-in and fit test at bootcamp. We’re a little under the mid-way point, but whatevs. I was pleased. I’ve lost 4 pounds in two weeks, 2 inches from my middle, 1/2 inch from my thighs, and 1/4 inch from my hips. Of course I wish that the weight loss was … Continue reading

Completing 2012 / Creating 2013

Completing 2012 / Creating 2013

 The fitness boot camp I’m attending had an optional Healthy Living class on Monday night that I couldn’t attend due to work.  They emailed us the handouts from the class and included were two questionnaires, one about completing 2012 and one about creating 2013. I thought it would be a good opportunity to reflect on … Continue reading

Randomness

This is my second week of a six week fitness boot camp. Since last week was a holiday week, the schedule was disrupted but the normal schedule is hard-core workouts Monday and Tuesday, yoga on Wednesday, another hard-core workout on Friday, and a group run on Saturday morning.  Long story short, today was the first … Continue reading
