Hello fellow fitness and weight loss folks! I have a bit of a problem. Lately I’ve been working out and eating right, but seem to be stuck at the same weight. My “shark week” is coming up this weekend, so I know my body is retaining weight. Is there any way to avoid this? I don’t want to weigh in Friday for Week #2 of the weight loss challenge at work only to be heavier than I was last week. :-(
Hello world! I’m one of those anonymous internet faces that has had about a billion blogs over the years, as far back as the times of Geocities and dial-up.
Thus far my adult life has been what some would call chaotic. While most of my peers went to college, got a job, met Mr. Right, and got married, I stumbled from one office position into another until I ended up working in IT. During the same years I wandered from one disastrous, bizarre, and at times mentally abusive, relationship to another.
Now, after wobbling around for the past 10 years, I find myself in a perfect position to, well, find myself. I started back to college, began finding my own hobbies, have begun working out and getting my weight under control, and gained enough self esteem to realize that it’s ok to have standards when it comes to men!
So, here’s goals I’d like to accomplish by May of 2013:
Get my weight down to 135 lbs
Be making around $60k a year or more
Learn how to cook well
Be 100% debt free
Cultivate a green thumb
Actively participate in a grown up, stable romantic relationship
These goals may seem silly or immature to some, but they’re mine. I find them important. I’ll be posting date reviews, before & after shots of weight loss, and career & college related updates!
