2 year Fitversary: My Weight Loss Journey…24 to 2!

I am going to repeat this from the My Frump to Fit: Size 24 to Size 6 blog because I feel that this is a very necessary statement. This is only my journey.  This is what worked for me.  This is not what I recommend or suggest but simply telling my story.  We are not in a […]

My Frump to Fit: Size 24 to Size 6

Before I really get into this…  This is only my journey.  This is what worked for me.  This is not what I recommend or suggest but simply telling my story.  Many people have asked me what I did, do or are doing to get my weight down.  A LOT!  Well it doesn’t feel like a […]

Fit Prego: Home stretch!

Third trimester…here I come!  I am so happy with the progress that I have been making!  Still under my goal by 5 pounds…in the home stretch!  Luckily I’ve never gained a lot in the final trimester.  I’m hoping that trend continues.  I’ve started walking more again now that I’m passed the weird belly button stretch […]

Fit Prego: Issues.

Issues…making sure my shoes are tied and my bib laying flat lol. I’m still running!  I’m hanging on as much as I possibly can with the heat.  It has been forcing me indoors more than I like but hey…baby safety is much more important.  Thankfully, the day of the Blueberry Festival 5K was beautiful weather. […]

My Journey to a Half Marathon!

What a journey! I never imagined me being a runner. At first, I even hesitated calling myself a runner or even what I was doing was running. I began it all with a push of admiration.  Here I was trying to find my way to a fit life and there was two friends, Emily and […]

Fit Prego: Some things cannot be controlled.

The latest…the pregnancy and my thyroid just don’t seem to want to get along.  My iron level, however, is doing great!  It’s amazing what you can control with just tweaking your diet and other things are just too far out of common fixes.  I’ve been told to go on iron vitamins and supplements before but […]

Fit Prego: No chance!

A lot of people have asked me if I have intentions to slow down…not a chance.  I am listening to my body and I plan to keep on going.  Pregnancy does not stand for do whatever you feel like.  Eating for two and cravings does not have to stand for a vacation from healthy, but […]

Fit Prego: AMAZED!

I’m still in shock. Six months ago I could not run more than 30 seconds without pain. Six months ago my ankles hurt…my knees hurt…my shins hurt… Every time heading out to do the C25K I thought that I was going to die.  After 2 months I ran a 5K…pushing a stroller…finishing in 36 minutes. […]

Fit Prego: No comparing

There is an evil thing that us women do.  We compare ourselves.  We look at one’s accomplishment and think that “if they could, I can”.  Well that’s just not fair.  I may look at one woman…  “She was the same weight as me.  She lost 80 lbs.  Why can’t I?”  There are so many other […]
