It has been a VERY long time since I have logged in to update. This past year has been full of changes: moved to a new state rented an apartment for the first time (with my best friend) explored some new cities and went to my first music festival moved into my own apartment got… Continue reading Making a change
I am here echoing the sentiments of my sister tonight. After a few very touching conversations, and some truly not-so-nice internal thoughts about the current state of my body, I am ready to be better. This past year has brought about some pretty incredible personal changes for me. I finally moved out on my own… Continue reading Be better.
A pretty incredible thing happened this morning. I showed up for the second follow up session with the trainer at my new gym (Retro Fitness – 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a great energizing workout environment). I anticipated a weights session so I did not wear a sports bra with a ton of… Continue reading Morning workouts are life
Slow progress is better than no progress, right?! I have been in a bit of a funk for oh….a month or so now? This morning, I broke out of it! I joined Retro Fitness – there is one just about 3 minutes from my house, so, it is definitely close enough to bike to when… Continue reading SLOW progress
I have got to be honest with you guys – I have not been 100% mindful of my nutrition for the past few weeks. The past month has been a whirlwind and I have let myself relax when I can and take in everything. The photograph above is from my first visit to Durham –… Continue reading ALL OF THE FOOD

When a coworker texted me to ask if I wanted to go for a walk with her, my knee-jerk reaction was to say no….but I fought that urge and said, “Sure, I’ll… Continue reading Two in a row!
I had my personal trainer take my measurements today and I could not be more pleased/proud/excited! The last time I did measurements was about two months ago in May. You can see the actual numbers at the link below (on my fitness Instagram @fitworkbritt). Additionally, the scale went down again this week and while I… Continue reading I feel good!
This entire pizza totals up to about 600 calories! I had a pizza craving and instead of ordering out, I went to the grocery store and bought healthier options. I cannot say confidently that I have been working towards my goals at 100% this past couple of weeks. I maintained my weight during my vacations… Continue reading Getting my groove back…
You know what is crazy to me – I have restarted so many times. I’d probably have AT LEAST $10 more to my name if I had $1 for every time I said “this time is different” to myself. But, you know what, this time IS different. I was thinking yesterday and I was talking… Continue reading We can do this.
