The 7 Day Beginner Trainer went well! I pushed too hard the second day and had trouble walking for the next two, but I really miss that burn!

I haven’t been to the gym in two weeks because I’ve got so much homework to do. My eating habits started to slip, but I’m back on track.

I had an apple and some yogurt for breakfast, and now I’m sipping on pomegranate green tea with stevia as I start to write my essay.


Hello again!

So, I’ve started again. For good this time.

I’m doing the 7 Day Beginner Trainer plan on bodybuilding.com and I’m on day 4!

Yesterday, I went to the gym, did my Day 3 workouts and found a HIIT Elliptical workout that was both fun and gruelling.

It looks like I’ve forgotten how to walk, my legs are so sore.

I don’t even have a scale up here since I’ve moved, so I’ve been taking my measurements.



I started Atkins last week. In some ways its harder than I thought. Some ways it’s easier. My friend and his family are doing it for one month.

I’ve lost 4.5lbs so far (probably water weight) but it’s enough to keep me motivated.

I was upsetting looking back on my old posts and realized I was 194. When I started Atkins, I was 220. That’s only 10lbs shy of me at my heaviest.

I’m done with being in the 200s.

AND I’ve been going to the gym every other day!


I did the stairs for the first time this year yesterday!

I’ve been slacking lately, but I’m going to see A Rocket to the Moon again in April, so I wanna look good for the concert!

I ran them three times yesterday, so that’s roughly..  867 stairs. Obviously with breaks in between, and I forgot my water so I was a little exhausted.

I’m really impressed that I did them 3 times, I honestly thought I wouldn’t make it to 2.

But my thighs are KILLING me: I nearly fell down the stairs at least twice today (Thank God for railings!)

I’m excited to get back into the swing of things though. I won’t be in a bikini by this summer, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be looking hotter!

So it’s been a month.

And I’ve done nothing.

Apparently I need some sort of accountability program that’ll help me.

Anybody wanna have weekly check-ins with me? :/

I don’t even wanna get on the scale but I gotta to see my new starting point. :( 


I stepped on the scale.

For the first time in weeks.



What the hell happened over the holidays?

I was down to 194!


I’m so mad at myself.

I see all you lovely people barreling through, losing weight and inches faster than a freakin’ marathon runner.

It’s so frustrating.

Gonna go on the bike later, definitely get back on track.
