    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 11

    So, I’ve been off from my weigh in for two weeks. We missed Week 9 and Week 10, but I’m back it with my Week 11 weigh in! I don’t have an excuse for my week leading up to vacation, but on vacation I definitely didn’t have a scale. I did so much walking over my vacation, so I’m curious to see if that makes any difference when it comes to my weigh-in. We are about to find out… WEDNESDAY WEIGH IN: WEEK ELEVEN Starting weight at end of Week 8 244lbs — Current weight 249lbs — Weight loss or gain +5lbs…. ouch. — What attributed to my loss or gain?…

    Wednesday Weigh In – Week 8

    I felt better this week going into my weigh in. I wasn't sure if I had lost or gained, and to be honest I thought I had gained but mentally, I was accepting of it. I have been non-stop for a few days, and I'm finally getting my mindset in a better place for the coming weeks. My plans this weekend include picking up a pumpkin, visiting my mom, inventory at work, and starting to piece together my life for NYC! My trip is coming up so quickly, and I feel like I have so much I want to do before then.

    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 6

    What a week it has been. I feel like I've been non-stop busy since my last weigh-in, which has probably contributed to my results this week. My first week of Keto was pretty good. Now, as I said last week, I haven't gone full Keto. I am easing myself in. That being said, I did consume a few things I shouldn't have.

    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 5

    This blog, this website, this forum - it's for me to be open and honest. There's nothing I'm holding back, so that's why I'll be fully honest when I say: I've never been good at diets. Or at least never been good at maintaining diets. I can diet. I can research the hell out of a diet, and get my mentality in the right place. But then I'm a sucker. And I love sweets. I didn't get to where I am without loving sweets. The weight on my hips? Sweets. Thighs? Sweets. Present me with a cookie and I'll be your best friend.

    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 4

    I’ve gained a lot of weight over the last few years. To be honest, my weight has always fluctuated. When I was a kid (and I’m talking like, a youngin), I was small. Probably from running around like nobody’s business. Going into middle school, and into high school, I started gaining more weight. That was aroun the peak of my anxiety issues, and I’m not surprised that I gained the weight that I did. I wasn’t doing anything. For part of middle school I was homeschooled, and going into high school the thought of gym glass made me so damn nervous that they were able to sub out that required credit…

    Thursday Weigh In: Week 3

    I wanted to stay consistent in my scale – so this week’s weigh in is coming a day late. I was out of town for a few days visiting my best friend who lives just outside of Ottawa, Ontario. It was a short but much needed visit. My little nephew has grown so much since I saw him last a few months ago, and it’s crazy how quick toddlers grow. This past week, I have felt like I’ve failed myself. I’ve been eating like crap, drinking, and just not being the best version of myself. I haven’t hit the gym, and my diet? Well, I haven’t been doing the best.…

    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 2

    I am happy to say that I’m no longer afraid of the scale. I was – for a long, long time. I’m sure many people can relate to that feeling. I was always afraid of the number. I was always afraid of the idea of “Oh shit, did I gain more weight?” or “Man, I’m a lot heavier than I thought.” But now, I have a different feeling about it. I look forward to my weigh in. I’m curious to know how well I’ve done, or how poorly I’ve done. I’m interested to see how my choice to be active or not, and eat healthy or not, effects the weight…

    Wednesday Weigh In: The Beginning

    August has been a lot busier than I intended for it to be. I feel like I left all of my summer for the last month, and have been busy every weekend. And, not to mention, even busy during the week. I took a week off from work, went away for a weekend, celebrated birthdays, and spent some time with friends. It’s been crazy busy, and now it’s time to get my head on straight. On Monday I got an e-mail – from my personal trainer (shout out to Colin if he ever reads this!) – which made me feel quite… disappointed in myself. I haven’t been being hard enough…
