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…

Today was weigh in number 5! I knew going into this weigh in I would not see much movement on the scale. I started lifting over the last month and just like I predicted a 1 lbs loss. I’m down to 246 lbs. Not a huge movement. The number that made me feel better was…

How I Hit 300 lbs

Thankfully I haven’t seen the 300’s on the scale for quite a few years but in 2016 I was there. Actually I was over 300, quickly approaching the 330’s… I was a first time mom, but way past the ‘baby weight’ excuse. I had an active 6 year old, a full time job, and two…

My Current Sweet Obsession

I’ve been doing a fantastic job of sticking to healthy eating. I’ve avoided fast food 99% of the time, drinking almost all water, and avoiding junk. Lately though, I’ve had a bit of a sweet tooth.

The Best Leggings On Amazon

I’ve found the Holy Grail of leggings on Amazon. The reviews were great, almost 5 stars, so I gave them a go. They are SQUAT proof, no underwear visible see through crap. They compress in all the right places, but not skin tight. They are high-rise to just the right spot. They are SO SOFT…

Goodbye January!

January was not easy. The sun has been MIA for almost the entire month. The lack of daylight is killing my energy levels. I’ve had zero social interaction. I’ve been sick, worked, and worked. All of us have been hating on January so hard. It got me thinking… What went well this month? What were…
