Things that Go Through My Mind at the Gym

I am overdue for a post, but I am not sorry because I have been making my workouts a priority! I've successfully kept up my 5 day workouts for the past couple of weeks, and I am quite devoted. I even insisted on going to the gym after work on Valentine's Day, so I could ...

Hit a Bump in the Road… It’s all Part of the Journey

Hi all! So of course I caught a cold last week which caused me to skip about a week of workouts. But I knew if I pushed myself too hard, I would exhaust myself and possibly prolong my sickness. I have this horrible habit of taking things way too far and setting myself up for ...

Check-in: First Week of Workouts after Work – Done and Done!

First week of workouts after work accomplished! I went straight to the gym after work everyday this week. And I stuck to my Run to Healthy Challenge! It was my first week of work at my new job, so I'm really proud of myself for accomplishing all that I have this week. I was pretty ...

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 9: Less than a month until my trip!

I've been slacking, I know...I've been distracted by my upcoming vacation. My last real vacation was last September so I am itching like crazy for some R & R. I'm going to Thailand and Hong Kong, and I absolutely can not wait!I know we'll be doing a lot of walking, so I'm really trying to ...

Week 8: Sometimes Being Healthy Just Sucks

This week, I was having one of those days where I just hated life. It was hard to get out of bed and I just wanted to hide away from the world. My limbs felt heavy and I just wanted to stuff my face with fries, pizza, and ice cream.These days, I realize, are the ...
