It’s official: I am down 30 pounds overall. I haven’t done my measurements yet. I haven’t had that kind of success. Ever. It feels really good. And I’ve done it in such a way that I’ve really worked on retraining my brain to make healthier choices with my food, while also trying to be more […]
I’m changing things up this week. Instead of writing about the specific successes and setbacks of the week, I wanted to write a little bit about my reason for doing this. The fitness plan, the nutrition plan, the writing… there’s a reason for it. Despite the technical goal of this program, I’m not doing this […]
For most people on a weight loss program, success is defined solely by the number on the scale. That’s how it used to be for me, too. But is that really fair to ourselves? I’m counting this past week as a success, even though I gained a little bit. Here’s why: This was the second […]
I feel like you should all prepare for this trend. Week A: So great, yay! Week B: Not great, boo! Week C: Great again, yay! And so on and so forth. So here we are for a yay! week.
After a rocky Week 3, I made it up to myself and found my motivation again. And it paid off. I lost about 7.5lbs. I know that’s a lot for one week, but that’s not entirely abnormal for the beginning of a weight loss journey. So yay me!
I think the 2 pounds I lost this week might have all been water weight. I kept going strong with week two and completed all five days of exercises. This week, Tuesday wasn’t a recovery day. It was challenge day. There is circuit that you do 24 reps of six different exercises and you time […]
This week was the first week of pre-training. I opted not to get started on the nutrition program until the first week of the regular fitness program so that it would all line up. The result? I gained 1.8 pounds. But that’s ok. Not an excuse, but a dose of reality: My starting weight was […]
OK, so I wrote before that I was going to start Weight Watchers again and everything was going to get back to working for my body! The weight loss would magically start to happen and I’d be in pre-babies shape again in no time! Guess what. That was bullshit. It didn’t work because I just […]
The boys are still healthy and thriving. I was really worried when we made the switch to all table food. I have never had particularly good eating habits, and I was worried that I would mess things up for the boys.
So food/nutrition is probably the thing I get most hung up about. I don’t have any strict rules per se, I do try to stick to the menu I get from Gerber (which means they get plenty of cash from us). But they’ve tasted sugar and they are getting fun, multicolored cakes for their birthday […]
