Wednesday Wisdoms 

Sorry about yesterday. The day got away from me. 

Today’s wisdom comes from knowing deep down you can only control so much, then you’ll need to put the work in. 


Don’t let a little bit of slacking off get you carried away from your goal. 

Until later.

One Meal Monday

Howdy folks. 

Today is brought to you by my new favourite thing to put in my water to help me drink more. It also brings me back to my childhood. 


Until later.

Sunday Confessional: waves

Confession: I was up this week, thanks in no small part for being a woman

I was glad it was only .3 and I am ready to kill next week. 

Being so close to a number goal has played on my mind. I’m four pounds away from my first 25lbs lost. I want that charm that WW gives out. 

But motivation moves in waves. Some days my mind is on and my choices are on point and I’m full steam ahead. 

Others I feel like I’ve been run over by my motivation truck. 

So much of this weight loss journey is not about food or exercise that it’s hard to remember to not focus so much on what goes in my mouth. 

The daily mental fight to make good food choices, get lots of steps in and make it to my gym class; it’s no joke. 

There are times when I feel like all I do all day is fight my own self worth for the right to be healthy and happy and not just ‘fine’ 

I fight with my need to love the person I am now but not settle with that person.  I fight to keep that person I know I can be in the forefront of my mind when making choices everyday. 

Confession; the fight comes in waves that wash over me 

Some days I surf and some days I’m pulled under. One thing I never do; I never stop swimming. 

I will keep fighting. 

Until later.

Tuesday Touchpoint 

I realized that today I am a progress junkie. 

I was in Combat class today and there is this hateful Track 5 that my Instructor just loves. 

It’s chalk full of push ups and mountain climbers and bear crawls and sprints. It’s like fun. If fun was a death march through a desert. 

However, today I did mountain climbers, on my toes. I did planks. On my toes. 

I didn’t die. Well I wished for it but I didn’t. 

Progress. It’s knowing you hate Track 5 but pushing yourself to be badass in the face of death. 

Until later.

Sunday Confessional: new ground 

Confession: today I hit a new place in my weight loss journey 

I have now lost more weight with WW since the first time I did the program – in high school.

Confession: I may be terrified of what comes next. 

With this new place comes things that could possibly derail or sabotage all my current progress. 

Things like; expectations from others, fear of failure in front of others, fear of success, fear of disappointment both alone and to others. 

I’ve always been my own worst critic and now that I’m super proud of what I’ve done so far it begs to reason; when will the other shoe drop?

Confession: I can’t see the visible changes in my body yet and I’m sure neither can others 

That’s another part of this. The vain person in me is disgruntled that one can ‘see my work’. Don’t get me wrong I’m not fishing for compliments but I’d love just one unsolicited damn girl wouldn’t suck. 


When you are on a weight loss journey and you have a lot of weight to lose it can seem like a very long dark tunnel. I’m just hoping to find a flashlight every couple hundred feet or so. 

When you are breaking new ground you need as much help as you can find a sure foot. 

Next steps? Keep digging that new ground. No way I’m filling any of it back in. 

Until later.
