    4/24/2017 6:33:18 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    The move is over! Now I'm unpacking everything. I have 3 weeks until the bootcamp starts, so I'm planning to focus on eating healthy and going to the gym and just making a fresh start with less fast food and more homemade meals. I love my new apartment! I feel like I have a fresh start. There's a t... Read more

  • Alcohol is REALLY NOT for Me!

    4/16/2017 7:53:53 AM, by ANNEMARGAR

    After 60 days without alcohol, I decided that I could reintroduce it back in to my life. I enjoyed a GREAT day - feeling great - everything was all set for my Easter celebrations. Went out to dinner with my family - to a wine bar -so yeah, why not enjoy a glass of wine....or two...or two-and-a-hal... Read more

    My biggest deal is people that do not keep their word I do not take that lightly if you can't do it do not commit your self to something but when I say I will do something I will do it no matter what do you have any deals Sometimes I leave my friends for doing that I want only people that are loya...

  • Low Carb and updated Fast Food Plan

    4/11/2017 8:18:45 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    I took a diabetes education class with my friend, Cat! The dietitian there recommended that I try to get 10 servings of 15g carb, or about 150g per day as part of my plan to lower my blood sugar. I can do this! I will do this! I've updated my list of fast food so that it's a bit lower car... Read more

  • Week 3 Recap. Slipped up.

    4/8/2017 2:48:56 PM, by TACOMALO

    ...not going to go into too much detail. Had a pretty good week, then two days of eating crap and boozing derailed it all. Back on it. Simple truth: Under-eating and under sleeping lead to a loosening of discipline...and then it all goes to crap. Haha - wish I had planned that boozin... Read more

  • Packing

    4/7/2017 7:07:13 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    My brother is coming out to help me pack for the move this weekend! For the past 2 days, I've been eating breakfast and sticking to my eating goals. I do feel so much better when I spread the calories out through the day instead of eating 1-2 big meals... I know it's better for my blood sugar ... Read more

  • Weigh-in

    4/5/2017 12:16:52 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    I gained 1.2 lb this week :( I know why. My cravings and portions have been out of control -- from pizza last Wednesday to fast food mega-meals, I haven't been pre-tracking and I have been eating pretty much whatever I wanted, including sugary lemonade and a soda. What the heck am I... Read more

    Today I was feeling good so I went a little bit faster at the gym. I managed to beat my personal best on my mile of jogging intervals by more than 2 minutes :) I've been to the gym 5 times now in 2 weeks... Wed will be my 6th! ... Read more

  • Someone asked me why I am focusing on eating plants...

    4/1/2017 1:04:07 PM, by TACOMALO

    My response: Couple of reasons for the focus on plants. Probably the main reason is that I have really started to dig deep into researching nutrition, the evidence is pretty compelling that a plant based diet is much, much healthier for the individual than a heavy protein based one. When I sa... Read more

  • Week 2 Recap: Losing body fat is more important than losing pounds.

    4/1/2017 1:02:36 PM, by TACOMALO

    Better week - not perfect. Kicking this thing off and using a 14 week weight/BF% tracker, I assumed that 14 weeks would be "Phase 1"...in all reality, I think this first fourteen weeks is "Pre-Phase 1". This is a time to adjust lifestyle to fit what is required to burn 100 pounds of body fat. I r... Read more

  • Moving forward with new goals

    3/29/2017 2:35:25 PM, by ADF1981

    I have been thinking long and hard about my goals. Since I have a lot I want to accomplish in April, I knew I needed to plan everything out. Like the saying goes "failure to plan, is planning to fail". Today I needed to go grocery shopping. I sat down and tracked tomorrow's food for the entire d... Read more

    I'm down 2.2 lb this week :D!!! I wasn't perfect (far from it), but I made a lot of good, small decisions. Hopefully this trend continues next week! Today I did my strength training at the gym, then bought some boxes; I'm working on packing... I have a feeling I'll be doing this f... Read more

  • Gym day 2 and packing

    3/27/2017 1:39:33 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    A good start to the week! I made it to the gym this morning despite not wanting to go (I guess that's why it helps to have a gym buddy, right? She helped motivate me!) Once I got there, I was fine. I did 6 jogging intervals on the treadmill with walking in between, and worked up quite a sweat, then ... Read more

  • I'm back

    3/27/2017 11:29:16 AM, by SANDRA1982

    I am back and determined to get this weight off once and for all. I have had a really hard time getting motivated. I'm not sure what has changed but it's like I don't have the will power. That has never been a problem before.... Read more

  • How things are going lately

    3/27/2017 11:09:56 AM, by ADF1981

    Overall, I feel like things have been going well lately. I feel like my efforts are good as far as working towards my goals. But, I've gotten no where in the past two months. It's just been tough to stay focused on losing weight. Like I ate two pieces of cake yesterday. I knew I shouldn't, but ... Read more
