I allowed myself 24 hours to be emotionally distraught over my first weight gain and today I’m ready to move on and move forward. Here are some things I know to be true about my life right now:
I do not weigh 263 pounds I am not living the life of my brother I [...]
I knew it when I wrote yesterday’s post that today would be the first time in this journey that I would have a gain. You try to not let it get to you but it’s hard. I try to say “it’s only 2.2 pounds” but with what’s been happening to me this week it feels [...]
It’s that time of the week again folks. The time where I review the last seven days in preparation for OWiS #18. I do this to help me remember this journey isn’t about numbers but about becoming a healthier me. It’s also about taking control of my life and moving closer to what I [...]
I’m am super stoked about my first WWC weekend coming up. Here’s a recap of my 3 goals for this challenge:
Drink a gallon of Water Saturday and Sunday. 70 sit-ups on the bosu ball at gym at one time. Swim 90 laps.
I’ve put the challenge out to other folks (both IRL and VBB) [...]
This is a short post cause I seriously need to catch up on the blogs out there…so many bloggers so little time!
My virtual blogging buddy (hence forth known as VBB), Brandon (So Long, Fat Ass) is doing another installment of Weekend Warrior Challenge. I’ve watched quite a few of these events come and go [...]
Whew, I am so happy to have Monday over.
There was no major fallout from yesterday’s change in plans but it can be exhausting to recover. I often have some sort of emotional melt down when not prepared for changes (which I did but it was only for a few minutes), then I [...]
What I really wanted to do was title this post “Let’s get to know Tara” because what I’m about to write is probably going to be mundane and too much information (but not in a gross kind of way). If you’d like to bypass the first portion of this post and get to Sunday’s [...]
I’m speechless this morning.
I just crossed over the 40 pound mark!
A -3.2 loss this week brings the total to -41.1
I feel like I should write something profound, but honestly I’m just going to let this picture and the numbers sink in and then head to Seattle for my workshop.
I’ve pushed myself to the brink. I knew it when I tried to run this morning. I probably should have taken the run outside but as I’m trying to work on staying at a constant speed I took it to the treadmill. During the first interval of week 4 of podrunners it got real [...]
Gah, I so need to catch up on blogs. So much is happening to everyone out there. Struggles and triumphs. Losses and gains. Frustrations and exhilaration. At the same time there is so much happening to me over here as well.
I’m taking another day to post because 3 really kick ass things [...]
