Emerging From My Comfort Zone

Hi all! Apologies for my absence. I regret to say that I had fallen back into old habits. I retreated back into hiding in my comfort zone and became bored, uninspired, and unmotivated. I basically stopped caring and became static. I was just going day to day waiting for the weekend just so I could ...

Bad Food, Bad Mood: Getting Back on Track

Finally, I'm back! I’ve been in a funk lately and I know I really need to get back on track. I was feeling down, tired and moody, probably because of all the junk I've been eating. It's a vicious cycle. What I eat makes me tired, and when I'm tired, I go for what's convenient ...

Back from Asia Travels, Off to San Diego

Hi! I've been back from Asia for about 2 weeks now and am still trying to get back into the groove of things. It was a great trip, and I'll probably blog more about it later, but it's back to the real world now... This will be a short post, but I vow to get ...

Weeks 10, 11 & 12: An Introvert at the Gym

It's been a couple of weeks and I'm just brain dead. As you can probably gather, I'm just literally counting down the minutes to my trip. I am still trying to generally eat pretty healthy, but I know that once I'm back from my trip, I'll need to do a full-on diet and challenge reset. ...

Week 8: Sometimes Being Healthy Just Sucks

Week 7: Breaking Up with the Scale

This whole journey is not just about losing weight. It's about knowing how to be far from perfect and still being able to succeed. One thing I've learned is that success is not a destination. It takes consistent effort and habit. It's also about the little triumphs. I'm still having difficulty allowing myself to have ...

Week 6: Baking is a Dangerous Hobby 

Week 6 of my health challenge journey is over. I'm just trying to stay on track after my indulgences from last weekend. Note to self: baking is a dangerous hobby to have while on a diet. Last week, I made cupcakes at a friend's house, and taste-tested almost everything! It was so good... BUT with ...

Week 5 Health Challenge Update and Happy Post-Friday!

We made it through this 4-day week! Is it just me or whenever it's a holiday weekend and we get a shorter week, it almost seems just as long or even longer than a regular five day week? Confession time... So I had a couple of cheat meals this week... I went out to dinner ...
