I’m not. for one, i share nothing really personal, so you don’t really know me and in turn, i don’t think many people read this, but that’s okay, this just serves as a visual log and place for me to write shit down, declare my goals from a tiny corner of the interwebs. but i’ll be better.
when i started this blog, I needed it to stay motivated because I wasn’t sure I was going to change for good, if a new way of eating/living was going to stick. when i started this blog, i just wanted to lose weight so I could go to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom. But I wasn’t even sure I would be able to keep the weight off afterwards…then i got really into weight lifting. now it’s second nature, a way of life…something i enjoy.
I like weight training more than food. my desire for building big muscles outweighs that of eating cupcakes or even bacon cheese fries. but the trick to eating cupcakes if you must (see below), is to eat one, just one and then resume consistent healthy eating habits.

i am losing weight slooowly. my current weight is 198lbs. 25% body fat. I have reached a proverbial fat girl milestone. they all dream and speak of this onderland. but i can tell you this: it’s just a number. but yeah I totally celebrated with this:
Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
my longterm goal is to be around 16-17% bodyfat at 175ish pounds. I will continue to lose weight sloooowly. I’ve learned not to overthink it, i just do it. if i’m consistant, results will come and they will take time, but i am in no hurry. consistency and patience. I am really enjoying the process immensely and bonus, I’m 86lbs lighter from my starting weight of 284lbs in dec 2010. I feel so much better.
on 3/25/13 my husband and I started this:
we’re almost done and it’s been a really fun process. I highly recommend it, it’s not easy but nothing worth having is! i still cannot bench 95lbs. I am stuck at 70lbs but I’ll get there.
i have still been taking pictures of every single meal, every single day this year so far. I’ve been posting them everyday of the book of faces. just not here, i get lazy but I’ll start posting them. I’ve been eating oatmeal egg white pancakes almost everyday for breakfast. oh, and I eat much more food now, when I started the gethin hardcore trainer, I had to eat every 2 hours and eat my bodyweight + in grams in protein, so I eat anywhere between 2000-2400 calories a day, and would you believe it, i still lose weight.
anyways, here’s what I cooked and ate yesterday:
Pre Workout: Sprouted Grain French Toast topped with Fresh Berries.
post workout: salmon, whole wheat pasta and mushrooms and asparagus.
Lunch: chicken, bean, baby arugula and spinach salad with cherries.
linner: cod and asparagus
Dinner: Ground Bison, Stuffed with Light Mozzarella Cheese, formed into a pocket. served with brussels sprouts
it’s a full time job planning/making every meal. now I see why people are lazy and eat lean cuisines, sandwich thins and 100 calorie packs. I used to. but it’s crap and investing the time in planning and making your own meals is just an investment into your future.
I’m seriously contemplating posting the past 2+ months of food pics in a post, any takers?
