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
I weighed myself this morning (I record my weight every Monday morning & report it to my dietician) and I was up 2 lbs from last week. Normally, in the past, my reaction would be getting very upset and then eating my feelings away…not today. Honestly, I did step on and off the scale a… Continue reading A couple pounds up
Today when I got home from work, I immediately changed into pajamas. Then, I ate dinner and dessert and watched TV in bed. 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.
Tonight I was dripping in sweat after my workout at the gym. I felt so satisfied. I had a phone meeting with my dietician this afternoon and I told her about my new polar a360 and about doing measurements with my trainer Monday (down inches on my calves, thighs, hips, chest, and waist). I am… Continue reading Trust the process
