Long time no see. I was running 6 miles a day 2x a week with my friend from high school and then stopped because of the cold but somehow lost weight anyways and got to an all time low of 107 (probably not eating enough if I’m being honest). 

Then my new boy came to visit for a week, he’s a body builder/personal trainer and we went to the gym every day and he trained me. I’ve since fallen in love with weight training. I’m a bit nervous to do it without him here to check my form and such but I’m excited to really change my body for the best and hopefully get the results I’ve been looking for for years.

I’m also going to change my diet, trying to eat more and healthier foods. I’m aiming for protein, veggies and carbs with each meal, 2 snacks a day, healthy fats and minimal sugars/fruit. 

Wish me luck!


I suck at clean eating…

Yesterday was an epic fail… Blue Moon + Regina’s pizza = Delicious but NOT clean eating. Yet to have a clean eating day all week.


Breakfast: 2 egg whites and a cup of Blue Diamond Iced Coffee

Lunch: Stuffed Pepper

Dinner: Going to a dinner party where I will drink, eat and be merry (or unhealthy)

WOD: 6 sets of 5 burpees, 3 sets of 10 burpees (going easy and no running because the spartan race is Sunday and because it’s pouring out!)

3 Mile Runs and Bikram Yoga

For the past week or so I’ve been running 3.11 miles every day and doing Bikram Yoga. Such a good feeling to sweat like that, on my way to a summer bod :)


Desperately want to get rid of my pooch and love handles :(


6 mile run!

About to attempt a 6 mile run (the longest run I’ve done in a longggg time). I’m hoping my 2 3 milers yesterday will make this manageable! Wish me luck!

Attempt 1: failure, just didn’t have it in me only ran 1.65 miles interspersed with walking.

Attempt 2: non-existant… took a nap instead haha


2 months, 15 pounds… I WILL DO THIS!

I found a website that breaks down how many calories I need to lose the amount of weight I want to lose in a certain time frame.

I am 5’1” and 120 lbs. I want to be 105. That’s 15 pounds. 15 pounds in 2 months.

Week 1: 1076 calories/day and I should be 118 lbs at the end of the week

Week 2: 1064 calories/day and I should be 116.26 lbs at the end of the week

Week 3: 1054 calories/day and I should be 114.51 lbs at the end of the week

Week 4: 1043 calories/day and I should be 112.76 lbs at the end of the week

Week 5: 1032 calories/day and I should be 111.02 lbs at the end of the week

Week 6: 1021 calories/day and I should be 109.27 lbs at the end of the week

Week 7:1010 calories/day and I should be 107.52  lbs at the end of the week

Week 8: 999 calories/day and I should be 105.78 lbs at the end of the week

2 Months and I will be 105

I plan to track my calories using my fitness pal and record them in a journal and on tumblr. I will do 30 day shred and keep up my running training for my 2nd half marathon.



Felt another comparison was necessary! (Black bra is my starting pics before this tumblr weight loss journey began)- I haven’t actually lost any weight (in terms of pounds) but I see a big difference. Any thoughts?


Day 5 of 30 Day Shred and loving my body :)
