This one falls in the ‘better late than never’ category. I weigh myself at the beginning of the month. This month’s weigh-in was delayed, because I was in the midwest for the first week of July, and even though I weighed myself last month, I forgot to blog about it. So today, you get a double dose of stats and graphs! Here’s my weight loss chart:

I have a whole list of blog post topics I could be tackling right now: recipes to share, new workouts I’ve tried, solving an exercise-related math puzzler, but right now, at this moment, I feel drawn to write from my heart. So guess what? That’s what I’m going to do!

New Year’s resolutions are a big deal, and so many of them involve losing weight. Self-improvement is always something I can get behind!

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the post I look forward to all year long. Every month I share my weigh-in results and workout progress report.

And, in order to do that, I’m going to need an assist from…My brand new weight loss chart!
This chart has been desperately needed for a few months, ever since I Read the rest of this entry »

I wrote a blog post last month about motivation, and how it had been eluding me. My foot injury had been preventing me from exercising, and then, once my foot felt better, I just didn’t feel like pushing myself to stick with it.
Well, I’ve been feeling the same way lately. My foot has been Read the rest of this entry »

On Saturday, I aggravated my foot injury while hiking. The very same injury that sidelined me at the beginning of the month, the one that sabotaged my motivation. And just when I had finally pulled myself out of that hole, that hike pushed me right back in. UGH! Sidebar: Injury aside, it was a great hike. I scattered my dog’s ashes, spent quality time with friends, and Tavi took this picture, which I absolutely love:
So, this week has been spent nursing my bum foot. Again. To catch everyone up, I have a Read the rest of this entry »
