If you are in the least bit interested in fitness and exercise (and it helps if you’re a geek or nerd like me), do yourself a favor and head over to Fitocracy.com. It’s my newest “thing,” and I don’t see my obsession dying out anytime soon. The site is still in beta at [...]
So… I just got back from spending a week on the beach during my family vacation. I knew I was eating too much, but my general line of thought was “Ehh, I have lost 60 pounds already, if I gain a couple back I can re-lose them easily enough.” So I ate, and ate, and [...]
I have completed my first week back after my one week break. I was expecting it to be a lot worse than it really was. I think I kind of psyched myself out because week six went so badly, since I was getting sick but didn’t realize it yet. Doing week seven with a normal [...]
I would like to think of myself as a fairly sane, moderately intelligent person most of the time. There are some things I have done that I look back on (or still do on a regular basis), however, that just ooze with ridiculousness. A lot of these things have to do with eating. I am [...]

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 [...]
I’m starting to get very, very frustrated with my lack of weight loss. I am exercising more than I have in quite a while, I am keeping close track of my calories, I am choosing healthier foods over less wise options… and yet, nothing seems to be happening. My gut is as flabby and awful [...]
I firmly believe, and I am fairly confident that I am backed by a substantial pool of scientific evidence, that too much or too little sleep can play a huge role in both weight gain and depression.
My boyfriend recently started working an 11pm to 7am shift at work. We knew beforehand that the [...]
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 [...]
