New Outlook

Alright, time to get back into this thing! I’m pretty excited because now that I posted My Confessions, I’ve actually been doing a lot better about exercising and eating healthier! (Minus some pizza I had Friday night and some Burger King I had last night….) Here’s what I’ve been doing lately: I’ve been trying to exercise every day by either doing a Jillian Michaels video or cardio. She’s hardcore! I’ve been alternating between her 30 […]

I’m so excited for my new vegan challenge! I’ve been planning out the menu and the workouts but it is not ready yet. I’ve decided to officially start when Daniel and I return from our trip on January 13th so stay tuned!

Taking Care of Business

I realized something, the other day I completely forgot to update about my new goals for myself after mentioning my last goals a couple weeks ago. So my new goal is to reach 120 lbs by New Years. That gives me 5 weeks, though technically I started this goal right after my last one ended on Halloween, which gave me over 8 weeks.  Any progress? Not really. Here’s what has been happening: I went running […]

Another week has flown by. Where is the time going? Well, another week and another weigh-in. Last week I was 129.0 and I said I wanted to finally reach 128 or 127.  Well, I did it! This morning I was 127.2 lb. Woohoo! I’m really not sure what I did different to finally get out of the 130 plateau I had been on for almost a month but I’m happy.  I didn’t really work out […]

Making Two Meals out of One & Grocery Shopping on a Budget

When eating out, portion sizes are ridiculous! Sometimes I feel like I’ve barely made a dent in my mountain of food before I feel full. But that’s a good thing! Just take the rest home.  I used to feel obligated to eat as much as I could on my plate when eating out but now I’ve learned to stop when I’m not hungry anymore.  Plus, you get two meals for the price of one.  Most […]

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It’s OCTOBER! The best month ever. Fall is my favorite time of year.  Leaves change hues, pumpkins are everywhere, and mild weather make for a beautiful month. I still need to buy a pumpkin. And make/buy fall decorations. It’s happening. So I’m not sure where the time went yesterday but 11PM came all too soon and I didn’t get a chance to blog.  It may have been due to the 4 episodes of Breaking Bad […]
