"Hey, Leesh, what had you been up to?" Well, that question can be simply answered by the title... but I'll elaborate a bit in a short 'life update-ish' post. Since the epic W30 fail, I've been doing just that- going to the gym and being an emotional wreck. Two places I've been pretty familiar with… Continue reading Smashing Weights and Ugly Crying
"You are the average of the five people you surround yourself with." - Jim Rohn If that quote is true, it explains my incessant desire for a nap and the need to be praised with food... because two out of the five people are actually a small cat and a giant dog. But what if… Continue reading I Ain’t No Follow Back Girl
Does everyone have that one friend that invites themselves out with you ALL. THE. TIME. but you're too weak willed to tell them you don't want them to tag along? Well, I do and for the love of God she will not take the hint. Sometimes she'll join me for the car ride to the… Continue reading My BFF, Social Anxiety

When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses- only results." - Ken Blanchard I used to be one of those annoying people who would check-in to the gym on Facebook at 5am with some… Continue reading Priorities and Choices

And when it comes to food, that perspective is tenfold. I'm a bad person with no self control when I eat a calorie dense… Continue reading Fed Up
Day 7- Today was the most "kill all the things" day I've had yet, between this round and my failed attempt in April. In fact, this is similar to how I felt the day I quit last time and shoved my face deep into a chocolate cake under a table at work. My stomach was… Continue reading W30 Days 7-8: Throwing in the Dish Towel
Another 2 days in the books! Check out what I ate & recipes are now linked!
W30 R1D3: Today was easy. The end. Ok, maybe a little more than that. Woke up feeling more rested than usual, but still decently tired and thankful to be off from work. My stomach is noticeably flatter than yesterday, my inflammation must be on the way out! Prolonged breakfast till 10am, simply just not hungry.… Continue reading W30 Days 3/4: This is Fine. Really, it is.
While I think it's great that the general population has started to care about heath and nutrition and exercise, I must give my two cents- would you expect anything different from me? It's almost as if the popularity of documentaries such as "Vegucated", "What the Health", "Sugar Coated" and "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead" have… Continue reading Trendy Diets
