So I'm jumping back to a topic that I mention every so  In this case though, I'm specifically talking about decluttering my room, which is distinctly different.

Healing the Whole

On my About Me page, I talked about healing my whole self and the reasons why I want and need to do this.  I think that the body, mind and soul are all connected, and  in order to become healthier, I need to work on all three, not just one.  Already I have seen the effects as I've worked to make my body healthier.  In certain ways, that has also gone a ways towards healing my mind and soul.  I have also focused a bit on these other two, but it is not as straightforward as obtaining a fit body, and a more positive body-image.

Daily Eating Habits: The Balancing Act

I wanted to take a lot of time with this post because I wanted to offer explanations for some of my food choices and my thoughts on eating.  Writing it out took time because I have never put this into words in any form, so I wanted to make sure it made sense and was informative at the same time.  I'm not sure I actually succeeded though, so you'll just have to bear with me.

Weigh In #8

So officially weighing in again.  It has been 8 weeks, close to a total of 2 months since I started keeping track..  This has been the longest period of exercise and eating properly that I have ever managed and I see no reason to stop now.  I feel great and I think that my weight is in a good place.

Back on Track

Stay motivated, we're more than halfway through January!!  So, it took me a couple weeks to get back on track, but I feel like I am officially there.  I've been excited to hit the gym for the past 4 days in a row and my postponed weigh-in is going to take place tomorrow!

Blogs That Worry Me

I think I'm about to touch on a sensitive topic here, but as I search for inspiration photos, I commonly stumble across blogs that worry me.

Inspiration and A New Poll!

Posting has been a bit slow for me lately as I get readjusted to my schedule now that vacations have ended.  Yes, it's taken two weeks of readjustment, but I'm getting there.  Recent activity in my social life, while a definite good thing(!), has contributed to the delay in posting.

How I Get Things Done Everyday

Patience and determination are two of the main components to how I make it through my week.  I have a very busy schedule, and 75 work hours to work around.  It takes a lot of organization, preparation, creativity, and commitment.

My Motivation

How to stay motivated...What I've written down here are all the things that constantly motivate me to stick to my lifestyle and stay healthy and fit.

My Gym Routine

On my Sunday post someone commented asking a few questions.  Over the next few days I'm going to attempt to address these in my posts.  I tried to put all the information together, but then it started to look like a novel and I figured I probably won't hold onto people's attention for that long.  So today, I'm going to talk a bit (probably more than a bit)  about my gym routine.

Weigh In #7

So it is officially the end of the 7th week that I have been exercising and eating better.  When I look at the number 7, it doesn't seem that big, but when I look at the difference I have made in my own life, it tells me more than any number.  Always remember that non-scale victories are sometimes more telling than the number you see on the scale.

An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away

I've recently started to think that I might have an addiction to apples (the fruit, not the technology).  As convinced as I am that apples are great for you, I wanted to know all the facts, so I went looking.

Lunchboxes Are For Kids

Since I work very long days, I have to be sure to pack enough food for the entire day.  On my busiest days I go from 8am until 12am, a full 16 hours, not counting my travel time.  Sometimes I only work until 6 pm, and weekends I sometimes only go into work at 6 pm.  Either way, I need to make sure that I have enough meals covered to survive my day.

Ringing in the New Year: Weigh In #6

Happy New Year everybody!  I hope your evenings were all better than mine.  I spent New Years Eve at work unfortunately.  I arrived home in time to watch the ball drop, but my chance at having a fun evening was kind of shot at that point.  Oh well, there's always next year...
