Progress Report-July 2016

I found my Fitbit! It was in the same place I put it when I lost it last time. You would think that I would have looked there first! I learned my lesson and I’m back on track. A few weeks ago, I started getting frustrated with my slacking. I’m normally pretty disciplined and I’ve let stress…

I lost my Fitbit. =(

It has been a long time since I posted. I’ve fallen into a bit of a fitness funk. I’m still going to the gym and trying to eat right but I’m not working to my potential. I’ve been stressed. I’ve been tired. I can make a ton of excuses and it still doesn’t make that…

Understanding-Daily Prompt

I see you there. You’re trying to blend in with the crowd. You don’t want to be noticed. You feel like the biggest person in the room. I see you fidgeting with your clothes. I see you self-comparing to other women. Don’t worry. They don’t see you, but I do. I see the beautiful woman…

Twirling away…

Image Credit: Playfuloakdance.tumblr.com   Even though I’m not at my goal, I feel foxy as Hell. I will wear sleeveless tops without worrying that other people would think my arms were too big. I wear tight fitting items that hug my curves in all my favorite places. There is no shame in my game. I…

If you can see it, you can be it.

Let’s face it. Humans are visual creatures. If we weren’t we wouldn’t feel all the pressure to look good. In weight loss, visualization is key. It may take a long time to get to where you want to be but if you can see it, you can be it. I never would have thought I’d…

Not losing? Keep going!

Lately I’ve noticed the scale number plummeting. I’ve gotten to the point where I’m not craving carbs and sugar again. I’m about 20lbs away from the big 100 now! I try to only weigh myself on Monday morning but I have a physical coming up next week and I’ve been peeking a little more.  This…

Looking in the mirror

When I was heavier, I was nowhere near as confident as I am now. I would constantly worry about how other people would view me. I dressed in mostly baggy men’s clothing or oversized band t-shirts. I didn’t feel pretty so I didn’t dress pretty. When I looked in the mirror, I saw a huge…

Fitbit anxiety

  Every morning it is the same. Wake up, put on Fitbit, get ready for the day. I don’t wear it overnight anymore because I know I’m not getting enough sleep and it keeps me from getting the infamous Fitbit rash on my wrist. It has helped me stay on track to my goals since…

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful mothers out there! I hope you have a lovely day and get spoiled like you deserve! Motherhood is hard work. No one prepared me for just how chaotic it can be. It is the hardest yet most rewarding thing in the world.  We often fall into bad habits…

Rain, rain, go away. Seriously.

Motivation is not my strong point this week. The weather is bumming me out big time. Even though I work out inside for the most part, something about the dreariness makes you just want to curl up in a blanket and do nothing. Ok, well not nothing. There is eating and television involved.  It is…

Single, single, double, double.

  Zumba is a magical thing. I am completely obsessed. Two to three times a week, I will wrestle the kids into the car to go to class. It is more than a class to me. It’s a party. It’s my happy hour. It’s my 60 minutes of sanity. I can’t listen to any music…

Here Goes Nothing…

  Hello readers! I’m Nic. I want to share my journey to wellness with you. It has not been easy. It has taken 8 years to get to the point I’m at now but I still keep going. I want you to see that anyone can achieve the success that I can. It takes hard…
