In light of my recent dieting mishap, I’m trying to set aside my feelings of disappointment and disgust in myself and look on the bright side. I’ve been oscillating between chubby and obese for pretty much my entire life, and because my bad habits are so ingrained, I may still be fat for [...]
Well folks, I have a confession to make. I completely blew it this weekend. I was doing fantastic with my diet and exercise routine, I felt great, and I was finally starting to drop some weight. …And then I went on vacation and ate everything in sight.

Yesterday was day 14, the end of my second week doing Insanity. I missed one day last week, so I did the missed workout the following day and pushed my week’s schedule back one day. I’m skipping this week’s off day and starting week three later today to avoid throwing off my whole [...]
As an explanation for the very general title of this post, I want to analyze a several-minute segment of my thought process this afternoon as I was trying to make myself get up to work out. As is habit for me, I fully planned to set myself up for failure mentally by assuming that the [...]
