That all too familiar feeling.

I’m an emotional eater.  I eat when I’m stressed or bored…when I’m happy or when I’m sad. So basically I’m always eating – ha!  As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was celebrating a very important anniversary earlier this week.  Apparently that was enough of a reason to throw my healthy eating out of … Continue reading

Save the Date

Today I’m taking a break from the weight loss/fitness aspect about my blog to discuss something that is very important to me. I’m getting married on December 31, 2013. Eight years ago there was a chance that I might not have made it to New Year’s Eve 2013…there was a chance that I never would … Continue reading

After making a conscious effort to track every bite I took, avoiding a third helping of mac and cheese at Sunday’s picnic, and trying to go for walks during my lunch break, I’m happy to report that this week I’m down 1 pound!  I’ll take it.

“I am the captain of this ship…”

Facing Reality.

I stepped on the scale on Friday morning and wasn’t ready for the number I saw. I shouldn’t have been so surprised to see it. The holidays are always tough for me, but I feel like I’ve been in celebration mode since our engagement.   I justified trips to Shake Shack by telling myself that Shredding … Continue reading

Resolutions for 2013.

2012 proved to be quite an exciting year, but I think 2013 might be even more so. As usual I do have a few resolutions: Get in shape and lose some weight. #SheddingForTheWedding #SlimDownForTheGown P and I bought each other a treadmill for Christmas, and I’ve already signed us up for our first 5K of … Continue reading

2012 In Review.

2012 In Review.

So here we are – December 31, 2012. I haven’t written a blog post in over 2 months, and for that, I am sorry. Life has been very busy for me over the past few months, and for 2012 in general. Time for a quick year in review! In 2012 I… Bought a kickass bike. … Continue reading
