I Can See The Light: A Month Two Review + A Thank You!

Now that I have embarked on the third month of my weight loss journey, it is time to take a look at the last 30 days. 

For anyone who is trying to lose weight or meet a particular fitness goal, I highly recommend keeping notes about your physical progress, as well as your mental/emotional ups and downs as you go along.

Although pictures of bodily changes may speak louder than words, nothing can replace the benefits of being able to go back and trace your various changes over time. After all, improving your health and transforming your body is just as much a mental feat as a physical one.

Tightrope Walker: Trying To Balance Weight Loss And Everyday Life Is A Major Fail

Hi, guys! Before we jump into the new week, I just want to wish all of my fellow Americans a very happy Memorial Day! I know it’s pretty late now and the day is nearly over (or perhaps completely over, if you’re reading this after the fact), but I still hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. 🇺🇸

I know I went MIA on Friday (sorry!), but there’s A LOT going on in my life right now that usually isn’t. I’m trying my best to juggle everything and acclimate to the change in pace, but it hasn’t been going very well. 😂

Even though I’m not the type of girl that likes to plan life out (at all), I desperately need to create and stick to a schedule, like, pronto. In fact, that’s exactly what we’re going to talk about today: balance and my lack thereof.

Baby Steps.

Today was the first day that I have attempted to run in a very, very, very long time.

I’m not in the hospital, sooo… it must have gone okay. 🚑 ♿️ 😂

Doin’ It For: The Fashion

In the last post of this series, I shared a desire to celebrate my future thinner body by taking a trip to the French Riviera. But as you could have guessed, a sun-kissed vacay isn’t the only reason that I wish to lose weight.

Today, I am going to share another source of motivation for me during this weight loss journey, and boy oh boy, is it a big one.

Fashion.

What Is That Smell??

Throughout my weight loss journey, I have experienced a number of changes.

Changes in the way I feel.

Changes in the way I look.

Changes in the way I eat.

Changes in the way I think.

Changes in the way I live.

For the most part, the changes I’ve witnessed so far are totally on par with what a person who is trying to lose weight should expect to see. However, nothing could have prepared me for the weirdest change yet. 😳

The Great Outdoors

After spending a few days feeling rundown and uninspired, I was glad to wake up Saturday morning with a spring back in my step. 

Despite not being back to 100%, I went outside to do some landscaping. The backyard needed some new rocks for the planters, so with the sky clear and the sun blazing, I decided it was as good a day as any to get some much needed fresh air.

Under The Weather…

Hi, guys! Just dropping in to apologize for yesterday (and quite possibly tomorrow). I was unable to post due to feeling a bit out of sorts. A sudden change in the weather has really messed me up; it’s not uncommon for me to get sick during season transitions.

There Were Calories Aplenty… And Cheesecake.

Hi, guys! A most happy Monday to you all. I hope you had a great weekend. 

If you’re a mom, happy belated Mother’s Day! And if not, I hope the special women in your life who are mothers had a beautiful Mother’s Day as well.

As for my mom, she says she had a lovely weekend. I too had an enjoyable weekend, but since I didn’t post, there’s plenty to get you caught up on.

My family and I celebrated Mother’s Day on Saturday in order to avoid the crowds on the actual day. The Cheesecake Factory was my mom’s restaurant of choice, so The Cheesecake Factory is what we had.

But I Thought The Fat Would Just Go Away!

For someone who has essentially been obsessed with losing weight since childhood, I’m surprised by how much I still need to learn about the actual mechanics of weight loss.

I mean, sure– I know about weight loss. Aside from everything I learned in school, I’ve spent years upon years absorbing all kinds of information about the subject. However, it seems as though there was one critical tidbit I completely glossed over: Where fat goes when we lose weight.

It seems as though I learned the answer to this question once upon a time, but had long since forgotten it. Well, I got a wakeup call today, and you know what? I’m absolutely mortified. 😳
