Singlet

Just a quick post to say my singlet has arrived and I hate it! I’m returning it and buying another.  Leg length too long and… just wow!

Another Branch for the Weight Loss Tree

In the beginning I said, “I just want to lose some weight”.  I had a number in mind, but it was more about just getting the weight to start coming off!  Once that happened, it’s been like a domino effect.  One thing has led to another, and another, and another! The latest branch to the

Testing! Hope I Pass… OUT?

I’m dieing over here.  I’ve taken the last 2 1/2 weeks COMPLETELY OFF!  And I feel as if I were training for the Olympics!  I’m fighting what I feel might be depression – still… what is that anyway?  I’ve been so exhausted.  The part that is killing me is as I “recover” I’m gaining weight

Active Recovery Officially Begins

Today I bit the bullet and decided to be seen for a complete check up.  This is going to be a process.  But forget for a moment that I struggle to lose weight and take into consideration that I can’t make it through a day without a nap.  And that’s with no exercise – I’ve

Back On Track

The main goal was to coast back to the 150′s.  But for some reason my drive was lacking.  I suppose my body and mind wanted a break, but instead of a break I’d been taking a complete vacation.  Again, moderation/balance.  2 days on, 2 days off, 2 days on… etc.  Not working too well.  I

Sam I Am… a Figure Competitor!

I’m a competitor in every sense of the word.  Yet, when I allow others to interfere with my own beliefs I feel inadequate.  Constantly comparing myself to others and their expectations of me, even when I feel like I’m not, is only going to pull me in the opposite direction of my goals.  I AM

White Noise Fades in the Distance

2 days into the race new plan I took my cheat meal (Saturday).  I stayed off the scale.  I can tell I’m heavier, but I’m mentally okay, which is a different feeling after a cheat meal so soon into a program and knowing I’m up from that recent low.  Typically I would be playing mind

And…. We’re…. OFF!

And we’re OFF!  Okay, not really like a race this time.  This time it’s about easing back into this and having the scale come down with that same steady ease.  I think this will be good physically and mentally. So the plan is simple. First off, the sporadic meals have come to a halt.  I’m

The War has Ended

There are a lot of battles around me.  But who says we have to fight them? It’s been a little over a month since my competition.  In that time, I’ve been to the gym 3 times, performed maybe 3 cardio sessions, and just now eating like I’m living “healthy” again.  I’ve been studying for my

On Vacation While RC Feeds the Dogs

I mentioned in my Step Away from the Cookie post that I had some things on my mind.  One of those things has me engaging my force fields.  My clothes not fitting so well is trying to get in the way of my current goals.  While my goal for the next 2 weeks is to maintain and recover, RC

Step Away from the Cookie!

OMG!  I’m sitting here thanking the Lord for good timing and great friends.  By the sounds of that you’d think something life threatening had just occurred, right?  Nope, just the threat of me giving into leaving my body once again. I posted on my boards earlier, “I had some outer body experiences yesterday.  I realized

Day 2 – Listen… to the Balance

After breakfast this morning I’m feeling so much more relaxed about this process.  Yesterday was tough.  And really, it’s not that it was tough, it was just… different and a bit challenging.  It took a lot more thinking and focusing in order to keep myself centered on what my body was telling me versus my

Shhhh… Listen

I was a little conflicted about my new plan and whether or not what I really needed was maintaining or stabilizing right now.  I thought the feelings would pass, but they only got more intense.  I finally broke down and emailed RC. RC was able to help bring some clarity to my thoughts.  Interestingly enough,

1st Day Back at Gym

I finally made it back to the gym today.  Yesterday had too many unexpected events that prevented me from making it.  I knew, after 3 weeks of not really lifting full force, I should keep the intensity easy to moderate.  I’ve noticed this separation occurring with the voice that tells me to beat myself up
