2020 is Not Cancelled.

So far 2020 has been interesting. If you’re watching the news it’s been the worst year ever, we should just give up, and stay in our houses forever until the government says we can come out… Anyway, I’m not here to be political or argumentative at all, so why am I here? 2020 is Not…

Foodie Beauty, Please Stop.

Posting something a little different today. First some explanation. I find a lot of inspiration on YouTube. I follow many health and fitness channels of all different approaches. Some sugar coat it, some cover it with F-bombs, and others are polite yet to the point. On the flip side I follow a few channels who…

How to Identify Your Trigger Foods.

I really hate the word trigger. It’s almost as cringey as the word “offended.” I guess I don’t like words that are thrown around when one is throwing a tantrum… Anyways. Trigger food. They’re real and they are hard to overcome. If you have or have had an unhealthy relationship with food you know all…

My New Addiction: Mini Cucumbers

Where have mini cucumbers been my entire life? Why are mini cucumbers so much better than a regular sized cucumber? The answer to those questions are difficult to articulate but I can tell you one thing mini cucumbers are GREAT. Everyday for at least a solid week now I’ve been having mini cucumbers with a…

Health Update

Well, we made it to the halfway point. July is here. This 2020 Weight Loss graphic pretty much explains everything. January I started at 272 lbs and as of June 30th I’m 234 lbs. March and May taught me that diet is so, SO very important. I mean I ‘knew’ this but now I KNOW…

Calories In, Calories Out

Dieting, lifestyle, healthy eating, whatever you want to call it doesn’t have to be hard. Over the last 15 years I’ve tried so many different ‘diets’ or lifestyles with a membership fee, a catchy name, or claims of fast results. All of them left poorer, still fat, and sad. Weight Watchers Keto Plant Based Low…

Quarantine: Week One.

The Lose It Weight Loss Challenge was supposed to end TODAY. I obviously don’t have to explain why it was ended early, but here we are. On March 16th gyms in Iowa were ordered to close. As of that date I was at my lowest weight of 241.8. With no gym, social distancing, and the…

My Favorite at Home Workouts.

*This is not a TED talk, I’m not that smart*   Well I’m officially tired of talking about, reading about, and thinking about Coronavirus. We’re all feeling a certain way. As of today (Iowa) we our tentatively out of school for 4 weeks, businesses have adjusted their hours of operation, and social distancing is in…

First Goal Achieved! Plateau Broken!

After a 1 lb loss at my last weigh in on 2/28 I knew I needed to change up my diet and gym routine to push through my plateau. Any time that I’ve had weight to lose I plateau around month 3 which is usually the time I start heavy lifting. I drop a large…
