To Cross-fit or not to Cross-fit
I'm excited that I finished a 20 minute run interval and still had enough gusto to run some more so that I would beat the pace of my previous 20 minute run. I'm not so scared of the 25 minute run interval scheduled for Friday now.

After the wedding, it all came rushing back. The weight that is.
By May of 2014, not even a full year after we married, I was back at 260 lbs.
I was ashamed, but I knew I had to do something.
I started eating a ketogenic diet. I was... Read more
I've been keeping with it. It's been fantastic. I'm eating heathy, and have kept running.
I signed up for two diet bets while i'm doing this. My first one is hosted by Jillian Michales, my 2nd is hosted by fromfattofitchick, a local woman ... Read more
Exercise and Anxiety
I've been working out nearly every night. It's been nice and I'm seeing results. I'm sore, but that's to be expected. I'm stretching before and after workouts, but I'm still sore. Hamstrings, quads, and calves - Oh my!
I'm a little worrie... Read more
Digital vs Analog.
Got a new scale for my DietBet. I stepped on it and then my analog scale. Not sure which one is correct, but my digital scale is showing 5 lbs heavier than the analog scale.
Weight loss is all relative. As long as both numbers go down, the... Read more
Hating work, but BEAST MODE
So right now. I hate my job. I am very much in a mood where I'd like to be left alone. I don't feel well, but I'm not sick enough to warrant any real time off. We're in the thick of the project and the pressure is high.
I'm not crumbling unde... Read more
Gipis - looking for friends
Does anyone else use Gipis for their runs? I am trying it out. 2 runs in and I love it.
EDIT: It's an iPhone application that takes your typical running times and makes a 12 week plan. It has a GPS tracker in it, and no ads.
Only catch ... Read more
I really wanted to bake cookies tonight.
I wanted the soft gooey insides of that chocolate chip cookie.
I wanted to put an Oreo inside the cookie. Mmm Inception Cookies
I thought about the ways I could bake cookies without eating them ... Read more
All about Jars
The Salads in a Jar have been working well for me. We ate all but one salad and it hasn't been a full week yet (I made that batch on Monday).
I'm keeping the last salad in there because I used a dressing that ended up being horrid, so I'm usi... Read more
3 days strong.
Going strong. Got off of work 2 hours late tonight. Still went to the gym for a 30 minute jog/run on the treadmill.
Have gone last 3 nights.
I've been munching on ice cream cake that my husband was made for his birthday. I've been portio... Read more
There are 12 jars with salads in my fridge. There is no chocolate in my home (unless you count the chocolate icecream cake that my husband had for his birthday.)
I packed my gym clothes into a bag, along with my gym shorts, shoes, and the ... Read more
backontrack Day 25
I kind of.... fell off the track for the last two weeks.
All I do is work and sleep these days. It's not healthy, but I'm exhausted... constantly.
I'm not happy with myself - for having to start over once again, and failing at making ... Read more
Day 11: #backontrack
I cut down on the amount of baking powder and VIOLA! I'm much happier with the waffles. Crispier than I like, but at least they stay in the pan and stay together.
I didn't go walking, go to the gym or even go outside for very long today. ... Read more
#backontrack Day 10 and the first trial of Soy Flour Waffles.
10 days = 1 lb loss. I'll take it. It's progress.
Today was rough for Dylan and I. Nothing went quite right. It all makes sense again now that I'm back from the gym.
30min treadmill - 2 miles
I came back and start... Read more
My Waffle Quest
As some of you may know, I was recently fooled by waffles. I thought they were light doughy goodness, but after calculating the recipe, they had 400 calories per waffle for the recipe I was using. They were still doughy goodness, but they were m... Read more
