Seeing the light arriving Greetings, my friends! And Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a great and relaxing weekend. It has been raining off and on yesterday and today and honestly it's been nice to chill for a hot minute. I did quite a bit of socializing this week and was oh-so-ready for a … Continue reading goals, direction, and starting to see light.
I have worked so hard these last couple of weeks in the gym. I'm pushing myself in my lifts and I've added "bonus" cardio everyday. And guess what? My weight hasn't changed. I've gone up and down the same 3lbs for almost 3 weeks now. I've stayed within my macros and I've turned down cupcakes … Continue reading I am not skinny … but …
Several of my twitter friends have shared a New York Times article over the last couple of weeks. I hadn't had time to read it, but so many people I respect kept commenting on it. So I saved it in my handy Instapaper to read later. Having now read it, I can see why it's … Continue reading who is influencing you?
OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN, Physical video, circa 1981-82 I'm writing this during the day. ON MY LUNCH BREAK. Yeah, I still can't get over that. 🙂 So this morning I did something that I wanted to write about. You want to know what it was? I didn't go to the gym and I didn't feel guilty about … Continue reading but then I stopped.
One of my compromises with myself when I started this blog (in deference to my last one) was to be completely honest. You get the good and the bad, the ups and downs, the wins and the losses. Why be fake? Why try to trick everyone into believing that life is rosy all the time … Continue reading Black coffee and honesty
Flying over a thunderstorm outside of Dallas this past October I think I've stared at the "Add title" part of this post for a good 20 minutes. I just finished writing a very mopey post about memories and pain. It's still in my drafts but I'll probably never post it. I'm sure everyone is tired … Continue reading the calm and the storm
Well, I think my title says it all. It fully encapsulates this week. I started Phase II of my new year journey on Monday. I jumped in with both feet. Phase II included new programming at the gym (both strength and HIIT), calorie and macro guidelines based on my reading of Fat Loss Forever, and … Continue reading tired and hungry and sore
I'm typing this post in the throws of a massive cold/flu/grossest junk EVER mess. Knowing that, it's safe for me to say that 2018 can just keep on trucking right out the door. HOWEVER...this year was one I won't forget: the good, the bad, and what's to come... Let's start off with the bad and … Continue reading 2018…let it go (queue Elsa.)
If you've followed me for very long at all, I write a lot about my weight, exercise, diet, etc. I like these things. I like seeing progress and I hate admitting failure. However, like two sides to any coin you're always going to have them both. Last year it was success upon success in my … Continue reading really real reality
I've been putting this post off. To be honest, based on my mood right now I probably shouldn't be writing it either, but oh well. You're getting a very honest and real Sarah today, folks. Hold onto your butts. A little over a month ago I wrote a blog post about my goals for the … Continue reading self-portraits & sushi
