Priorities and Choices

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you only do it when it's convenient. 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

Slave 4 U 

Long time no talk, frandsss! This is just going to just be a little ramble-y bit (again) about the scale and why it's a mindfuck and a half to weigh yourself every day... like I do... for no reason.  One of the rules I never touched on from the whole30 is that you can NOT… Continue reading Slave 4 U 

Fed Up 

I live my life in black and white. Right and wrong. Absolutely and never.  All or nothing.  There is no sometimes or maybes, always a hard yes or a definitive no. 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 

W30 Days 7-8: Throwing in the Dish Towel 

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 

Trendy Diets 

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 

W30 Days 1/2: The Headache 

W30 Day 1:  Still quite unsure what came over me this morning as I reached for a Lara Bar instead of a bagel and a Diet Coke. Perhaps I was possessed, or my brain had been hijacked by Robb Wolf. Either way, I went to work without a lunch which forced me into decision making… Continue reading W30 Days 1/2: The Headache 

Motivation

Motivation. Can't buy that shit on Amazon. You may think that some people have it, and some people don't. Fake news. Motivation is inside everyone, it just comes out stronger when you channel it toward something you are passionate about. Keeping with the fitness trend, here are some tips to get your ass off the… Continue reading Motivation

Gymtimidation

Going to the gym can be pretty intimidating, especially for the first few times. Surrounded by equipment you don't know how to use, and you're fully convinced everyone is staring at you. You're surrounded by equipment you don't know how to use and the members seem, well, intense. Your "newbie" is showing as you walk… Continue reading Gymtimidation

Does Not Work(out) Well With Others 

When I see a group of 3 girls at the gym, I can always tell who's idea it was to coordinate this workout. It's similar to Goldilocks and the 3 bears. They are all using the same set of 5lb dumbbells, 20lb straight bar and light resistance band. However, there's one of them who was… Continue reading Does Not Work(out) Well With Others
