Why do we fall?

So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

Bad news: I didn't lose the 5. In fact, I only lost three. I'm not posting the photo because it felt crappy to take it. I'm at 258. It kind of blows, but it's also reflects a lackluster month. Needless to say, I have to step it up.

For starters, I'm going down to bi-monthly weigh ins. It'll help keep me on check.

I have to go back to weekly goals and trying to accomplish said goals.

I have to watch what I eat like a hawk. This was kind of my downfall for the month: I ate three cupcakes in less than 24 hours. Bleh. That just sounds so horrible. There's a reason I haven't had pasta or sweets. I can't stop myself. I suck at moderation. :( Boo for disappointment.

But I still have 10 months to go. More or less 310ish days to kick ass and take names.

I'm going to go plan my week in meals. Send good vibes my way...I'm not feeling awesome right now.


  1. In your defense, Feb is a short month and my birthday messes everything up. I apologize :(

    But you're so gonna kick ass in March. It won't even know what hit it!

  2. Don't get discouraged! You have set a GREAT goal for yourself and you're taking the right steps to achieve it. We all have our weaknesses (my personal downfall this month was Girl Scout cookies), but you're committed to make a positive change in your life. Though it sounds totally cliche, you are making a lifestyle change for the better.

    Also, working out = more muscle mass; on the weight scale, muscle mass > fat. You're building muscle on your body that weighs a little more, but it will burn so many more calories for you as you progress. It's like you're on the third week of one of my favorite shows, "The Biggest Loser". February gave you the most muscle gain, but numbers didn't change much on the scale.

    If you want to see some different results, try taking your measurements. I think you'll be pleasently surprised at how your body changes over time.

    And now that I've written you a fabulously long comment, here is the bottom line of the post: Keep your chin up. You will kick ass in March. I expect a list of names. :D
