fat girls love cake

the ramblings of a girl on a journey to finally get fit.

7/365 - post crossfit

i am in love.  i really like the intro class and i feel like i am finally going to learn how to do all of these weight training exercises properly.  i am so excited.

i was complimented by the coaches on my kettlebell swings, push ups, and box jumps. that was AWESOME.  i have my boyfriend to thank for all of that.  when i used to work out at the studio, he taught me how to really do some wonderful things.

i am really looking forward to this part of my life.

so, my grandmother is really sick and our family doesn’t think we are going to be here much longer.

that means that things are getting way more difficult for me to focus.  BUT i will persevere.

however, i really wanna get that mani-pedi…so i’m going to my first crossfit class ever tonight!

3/365 - Ramblings

W: 177.8

I looked at the scale this morning and felt sad. That being said, I didn’t want to dive head first into a brownie.  Instead, I tracked my breakfast and had a really yummy and filling greek yogurt bowl with a kashi bar crumbled in it that was drizzled with honey and blackberries.

I signed up for gympact last night to keep me honest.  I am going to have to work out at some point today and if I do not, then I am definitely going to have to go tomorrow morning.  

I think i might just enjoy being lazy today with my dog and my boyfriend and get back to the rat race tomorrow.
