Change is Coming

I have had an interesting few days. Survived the first winter storm warning by watching Breaking Bad with the husband 🙂 I haven’t been to CrossFit as much as I feel I should be, but I have been running more. This weekend was kind of strange in the sense that I started to see more … Continue reading

Whole30: Day 18 – 20 Check-In

You know what? I don’t know where this Tiger Blood is, but I am not experiencing it. False advertising Whole 30! But I can report the following: sleeping longer, more deeply, I wake up feeling refreshed! I have a bit more energy, I am doing more around the house, I am running more, I feel … Continue reading

GOALS {2014 Edition}

Buckle up beotches! I have been doing a lot of thinking about my physical abilities and where I want to go for 2014. I have been thinking about this for a good 6 weeks and consulting with my trainers and everything. I have been thinking about my food and have experimented over the past 10 … Continue reading

PR’s and Weird Behaviour

This post is going to be a little fractured, as there have been things going on in my life that have kept me busy and prevented me from writing here. Like a CrossFit competition at my box and me making 100 mini banana breads for a friend. I might have napped at 11am on Sunday. I … Continue reading

Super Aggravated

Apparently finding weightlifting shoes is really difficult. I didn’t really think about it because I saw them in Dick’s Sporting in Louisiana ten days ago. So I thought “I can find them at Academy Sports in my area” right? WRONG! Hella wrong!!! Man did I have an experience in torture today. And it started off … Continue reading

First Cold of the Season

Got knocked on my ass this week! After a wonderful and fun (and completely non-Paleo) weekend in New Orleans, I came down with a slow moving but evil cold. At first I thought I would go workout on Tuesday, but as the day progressed I started feeling worse and worse. I decided to sleep instead … Continue reading

Incredible Shrinking Woman!

This whole no sugar thing has been pretty great. But shhhhh, you didn’t hear me say that. I made these coconut “dream cups”, which is coconut butter as a base and dark chocolate (100%) mixed with honey and cocoa in the middle and coconut butter on top. It’s like a peanut butter cup but in … Continue reading

Sugar Challenge Check-In

Things have been interesting, that’s for sure!! Here is how things went since I started: Monday to Wednesday last week I had a mild headache but no real cravings for sugar Thursday to Sunday I was good, I wasn’t craving sugar, yes there were moments when I was eating out that I saw a dessert … Continue reading

Smaller? Maybe!!

It is so hard to know when you are getting smaller during weight loss. I know this sounds odd, shouldn’t you know? Aren’t your clothes fitting differently? Don’t you see it in the mirror? The answer is no! Seriously though, I am way too close to what is going on, so it should be no … Continue reading

Mental Aspects of Weight Loss

On my lunch today I came across an article by a woman who lost 180 pounds after having by-pass surgery. Her story really left an impression on me, and made me think long and hard about the journey I have been on. With her, she lost the weight without effort and quickly due to her … Continue reading
