Hello Zumba, my old friend.

Yesterday marked my triumphant return to Zumba! For those who know me or have followed my blog for a while know that I used to attend two to three Zumba classes a week religiously. I cannot remember the definitive reason why I stopped attending classes a few years ago. However, I do know that, like with … Continue reading

Hello…it’s me.  

It’s been over a year and a half since my last post. Similar to my last hiatus, I wish I could say that during my time “away” that I’ve finally run a 5K, lost a significant amount of weight, and won the lottery. Alas, none of these things are true. What I can say is … Continue reading

Gone Juicing

About a month ago, a friend and colleague expressed an interest in doing a juice cleanse.  She started doing a lot of research and shared her findings.  A few of us at work decided that it sounded like a great way to hit our body’s reset button, and aside from the cost, it sounded relatively … Continue reading


Last week I met my goal to go to the gym at least twice before work!  WOOHOO!  I totally nailed it, and felt great about it.  Though I’ll admit, the first day was rough and called for a venti iced skinny vanilla latte (with an extra shot) by noon just to help me get through … Continue reading

It’s been 10 months since my last blog post.  I wish that I could tell you that since June ’13, I lost over 100 pounds, have lived the fit life, and demolished multiple 5Ks.  The reality is that I didn’t do any of those things.  In fact, I’m hovering uncomfortably close to my highest recorded … Continue reading

An Aha Moment.

Me:  “I cheated today.” P:  “What was his name?” Me:  “DD.” P:  “Dunkin Donuts?” Yesterday my department held their monthly birthday celebration.  There were bagels, coffee cakes, cookies, and Dunkin Donuts Munchkins.  Mmm…Munchkins.  In my defense, I held out for a while, but soon I reached inside the box and grabbed some chocolate glazed Munchkins.  … Continue reading

Weight Watchers Wednesday!

Again, I apologize for the lack of posts lately. June happens to be one of the busiest times of the year at work, which is why I really try to find the time every week to walk to my weekly Weight Watchers meeting. So here are my weigh-ins from the last two weeks. Last week’s … Continue reading


P and I are officially six and a half months away from our wedding – 204 days to be exact! To speed up #SheddingForTheWedding, P has decided that he would like to go low carb (think South Beach-esque). Of course, being the awesome fiance that I am, I have also decided to go low carb. … Continue reading
