Here I Go Again…To The Fabulous Me!

Just another weblog


Runnin’ to the Hills… from Life

Hi, again.

It’s been a while-over a month.

To be real, life has been happening. The main thing that kicked my butt was that I got food poisoning. That is a story for another time, and a store chain that I will never shop at again with how they treated me (which I won’t put the name of considering how vicious they are).

I also went on a stay-cation for a week. That was relaxing only for the fact I didn’t have to come to a place of work that is driving me up a wall.

So overall, my life has been fun, so fun that any weight I lost (got down to 282.8) is pretty much back (286ish). I will try and post more, especially receipes.

Though I don’t know if anyone is even looking… such a lovely mood, eh?

Starting Out… More Funky then Fresh

It’s been 2 weeks!



For what, you ask?


That I joined a gym! I know, I have decided to do more than “eat healthier” to get fit. So on 1/19, I was searching for a gym and I found one, an expensive one but a nice one (*cough* LifeTime Fitness *cough*). I had two prerequisites: 1) they had classes I could go to and 2) they have a steam room. The reason for the first, is that after an internal search, I realized the thing to make me do something I really don’t want to do is to have to show up for it. School, Work, now Exercise. If I have commited to something (especially paying for it extra like this class), I am showing up. Maybe late (like I have recently, but I’ll be there. Hey! Fate conspires against me! See the overflowing toliet about 30 min before class… my apartment people have!) The class I signed up extra for is “Team Weight Loss” (nothing like making it obvious, right?). I have attended 4 classes (M/W/F), and though I am the youngest by 10 years and the biggest by I don’t wanna know, the ladies (and its an only ladies class right now, save the teacher) have been very welcoming. I have done 4 classes and I actually have sweated!

The second reason, is that I fell in love with steam rooms in Vegas (the Hard Rock Casino’s Spa had one) on my recent vacation and wanted to go to one here in Ohio.

They take stuff seriously in this gym. With the class, I got a heart monitor and a fitness test (hooked up to a breath mask and everything!). It has been interesting and I actually want to go to the gym, whereas before, the gym and exercise had bad memories for me.

I have included my fitness test- not the best but its what I got!

My fit (or rather unfit) results...

I’M BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FAT BEWARE!

This feels so weird. I haven’t been on this since 2011. I have made a Resolution though….not on New Year’s but now to really do this-write down and take accountability for my life. I have been thinking on this for months…when I was disgusted with my self for eating fast food every night..when I was buying my lunch out of a cooler at work…eating the leftover fast food for breakfast…BUT IT STARTS NOW! I am going to do this for me…not my Sister’s wedding in October…not for any man I have yet to meet…not for my judgmental grandma who would hit my hand if I went for seconds…but for me. So when I look into a mirror I see who I really am…not just the results of my flaws.

I know this is going to be hard. I have been dragging my feet for the last couple years saying, “oh, I don’t know how to cook or what to cook,” “I need to research this more,” “oh, I should wait like all the programs say to get my doctor’s permission before I start exercising,” or “I’m too tired. I’ll start tomorrow.” Well, NO MORE!!!

This blog will be my coach, my diary, my adherence, to this goal of being fit, of losing the bad weight, of finally fitting in my skin as I want to. I am buckling down as there is no time to waste, as I have done for the first 25 years of my life. I am turning 26 in six months and I want to have the life of a 20-something person, instead of a antisocial shut-in who only leaves the house because she has to earn money to live. I already have so many regrets about not living that I am done with them. Whether its YOLO or FOMO or whatever I am going to start now.
