Alright, truth be told.

I haven't been around the blog much because things have been pretty bad on the health and fitness front for me.  No bitching or complaining, but long story short, I'm sitting about 10 lbs. heavier than my lowest weight of 128.

I can give you all the excuses in the world for why it happened, but instead I'm moving forward and doing something about it!
I had enough!

Workouts are still happening but not as often and intense as I would like.  Working with other personal trainers helps a ton because we'll usually pair up to workout (workout buddies!!) but I still find myself making excuses to why I can't do an extra 20 minutes of cardio or why I HAVE to go out to buy my lunch.

But no more!

I'm not making any promises about how often I'll be blogging but I AM making a promise that health and fitness are back to being my number one priorities.

To get my eating back on track, I'm following an awesome diet plan, made by an awesome woman, whose concept and ideas behind the plan are things I strongly believe in.  Fighter Diet.  If you don't know, educate yourself with the link!

So official re-starting stats:

Starting weight: 176.4 lbs.
Last week weight:  ???
Current weight: 140.0
Current loss:  ???

Hey stranger! Great to hear you've "had enough." When we start petering out on our goals, keep asking WHY you began in the first place. It has to be more than "losing weight." This REASON for doing what you're doing will be the key ... and your driving force for the rest of your life. Why do you go through the pain, physically and mentally? Why do you sacrifice? Why do you blog? Why do you .....

This reason IS your motivation. When you become emotionally locked-in to it, motivation can't ever leave you again.

Also, I want to offer you my time (free of charge) to help you get your personal training "business mindset" going - help create that "You need my services" mentality!

Let me know. So glad your post found me.
