literally, ignore them.
say nothing.
don’t invite any parts of them into your space."

  • Hips: 50

(and I fit into my size 16 jeans that hadn’t fit me since before I moved away for school! My “regular” jeans are too big now!)



ProTip: all natural pb & oatmeal raisin cookie sandwich is 👌for when you’re craving something sweet


Sunday Summary

I went to the gym today and it was totally dead. Score!

And then I played soccer with my friends for 3 hours!

I went grocery shopping and bought a TON of fruit: cherries, watermelon, apples.

I ate incredibly well today.

Ahh this feels amazing.  I’m home, showered, I’ve eaten supper and I’m going to watch a movie because I did all my homework on Friday!

Workout Summary: Wednesday

  • Elliptical 20 min
  • Leg Curls 3 x 12 (40lbs)
  • Long Row 3 x 12 (40bs)

My phone died while I was at the gym so I couldn’t keep track of the workout as I went along.

The elliptical routine was a little different this time, I used one of the interval presets in the machine it was great! It forced you to focus on pulling with your arms, pushing with your arms, just using your lower body, maintaining 6mph, maintaining between 3-4mph and then going backwards, which was the strangest thing.


Workout Summary: Monday

  • Stairmaster 20 minutes (Level 4 intervals)
  • Long Row 3 x 12 (40lbs)
  • Ab Crunches w/ Machine 3 x 12 (10lbs)
  • - part of the reason I like the machine bit is it adds resistance and isolates your abdominals!

Not a bad workout, not a great one either. It was really late by the time I ended up going, which was good because it was pretty much empty, but not good because I couldn’t sleep much after, I was still so riled up.


I bought a scale yesterday!

and planned to go to the gym, but didn’t actually go. Going tonight!

I’m sitting pretty at 210.6.

Honestly, this is a pleasant surprise. When I weighed myself at home over Easter, I was 216.

Last year, my family and some family friends held a bit of a competition to see who could lose the most weight in 3 months. 

By the end, I was 191. 191! I felt better, I looked better, and I’m going to be there again.
