  • Blogmas Day 10: If no one sees or hears you eat it, do the calories exist?

    12/10/2019 2:31:29 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    It's been a busy day so far! Got a lot of gifts ordered too! I was waiting on a big sale and finally got the coupon I wanted. I saved 25% plus $40 bucks off! It was glorious! I got out for a run this morning and the trees were so pretty! They are turning to a gorgeous bright orange. I tried to get a... Read more

  • Blogmas Day 9: Can't I just blink and be at goal weight already?

    12/9/2019 3:49:42 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    I was thinking about how the time goes by slow sometimes yet at the same time, it can fly by! I just want to wake up and BAM! All my weight be gone and to be at my goal weight. Buuut....no, that's not how it works. It takes time, effort, patience, and more time. Sometimes you just need to take a bre... Read more

  • Blogmas day 7: Big fight! A bit worried about falling behind and gaining

    12/7/2019 5:57:53 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Short blog today. I'm a bit worried about the holidays. It's more rainy which means hubby is home more and he never wants to workout or do much. I was gonna go out on my own for a workout but he wanted to watch a fight and I got into it! Big fight, a rematch! I got caught up in the excite... Read more

  • Blogmas Day 6: Thanksgiving caught up with me....and tom

    12/6/2019 1:20:40 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    So, yes, like the title says a lot is against me right now. I ate quite a bit of stuffing and rolls on Thanksgiving and it shows on the scale. I'm up 1 lb. Plus tom is supposed to start today or tomorrow and I can feel the bloat and pain starting up (sorry if tmi) Thought that was cute. ... Read more

    Much nicer day today! The sun is shining outside and I got out for a nice long run! It rained the whole day yesterday and was freezing outside so we just decided to stay in. I did clean the house and start setting up some decorations though. So I burned a little bit? Still, I'm gonna count yesterday... Read more

    It's raining today! I love rain and all but it messes with my workout schedule! Stuck inside today. Will be going to the gym later on. Hubby is also home today due to the rain so that throws off my schedule too. I don't know why, but when he's home I don't like to do tae bo or workout inside. It jus... Read more

    Day 2 today! I got out for a run this morning and am feeling great! After having a bit of a vacation, I already felt a little out of shape and wanted to quit! I had a big heavy jacket on due to the cold so I'm thinking that was part of it. I only took off Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. It's crazy ho... Read more

    So it's December now!! I can't believe it! The countdown to Christmas is on! I got a few gifts so far, but not as far as I want. The problem is, the kids are older now and it's harder to hide the gifts from them. I think I found a place but wow, they are sneaky. So, since it's December 1... Read more

    11/28/2019 3:15:51 PM, by SPRITEPRINCESS

    Today I am taking a small break from the fuss of keeping healthy and focusing on being thankful. I am thankful that I have a new client that doesn't want me to work on Thanksgiving. I am great that Father in law was approved for caregiving hours. In just a few weeks I will have full time hours wi... Read more

    11/28/2019 1:16:39 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Well, I caved. I was genuinely curious and hopped on the scale and hit a new low weight! As for the race I was gonna do? Cancelled due to rain. Bummer. It's ok because the thought of running in pouring cold ice rain on Thanksgiving doesn't sound very fun to me. I doubt I'll get a work out in t... Read more

    Can't believe we're almost to Thanksgiving! I'm actually really excited! Nervous too because Thursday is the day before Friday which is usually my weigh in day.

    Last summer I went camping. For the first time in a very long time I wore a bikini played in the water and went fishing and did everything feeling free. When I got home I looked at all my pictures and was immediately disappointed. I had let myself go. I was embarrassed by what I had let myself becom... Read more
