What Are You Waiting For?

The other day I was sitting on the beach with my friend explaining how hard the dating scene is.  I had been on a couple dates and had a couple coming up.  Unfortunately, the one had cancelled our 2nd date the day before due to work schedule which is totally understandable. Since I'm an open book I have to…

One Year

It has been one year since I decided to make a change in my life.  This time last year I was unahppy with how I was running my own life.  I had bad eating habits, I hadn't worked out in years and didnt' even want to be social because I felt bad about myself.  These…

I’m Baaack

If you've been following my blog for a while now you know how much I've switched up my fitness routines.  I first started out at the Ultimate Fit Zone in Ocean, NJ doing boot camp classes.  I met some amazing people both in the classes and the trainers. Then warm weather swept in and I…

The Biggest Loser

Tonight the 15th season of The Biggest Loser premiered and I was very excited to watch for motivation, tips and to see what workouts they do.  If you are ready to make a change in your life for your health I strongly urge you to watch. These severely overweight and unhappy people have all kinds…

Guilt and Moving Forward

Lately I've been feeling less and less motivated to stick to my routine and wanting to break away from it and throw in something new.  I decided to try out the "couch to 5k" (C25K) program for the summer just to get outside and change things up. Sunday morning I got up and grabbed my…

Lessons Learned From New Beginnings

When I began this blog and my overall journey my intent was to hold myself accountable and have something to look back on to remind me of how far I came.  By sharing my fears, struggles and triumphs it never crossed my mind that this would connect me to people I already know on a…

One Size Down!!

Today's workout was pretty rough but I feel amazing!!  We had a round of movements to do like 10 renegade rows, 15 ball slams, 20 air squats and 10 dumbbell pushes for 3 minutes.  We took 1 minute rest then another round until we did it 6 times. I was sweating buckets but afterward I…

Commitment

Yesterday at the end of my Zone 360 class I was approached by one of my coaches to talk about my progress and see if I needed any help.  I'm still down only 10 pounds and should be more around 16 after 2 months.  I said that I've had recent food temptations with family dinners…

Inspiration

Throughout this process I've tried to connect with something or someone who inspires me to push myself.  Most of the time those people have reached out to me to send me words of encouragement.  I carry each one of you to my classes and to the kitchen trying to make good decisions. Saturday night I…

Anchorman and Pain?

I have been sore for a few days after Monday’s workout.  My abs (yes, I have abs under that flab) kill when I laugh which I do often.  Yesterday at work my friend Mel was reciting lines from Anchorman, “I love lamp”. This of course cracked me up which didn’t help….at all.  But that means…
