D37 Cranky Pants

Man I am CRANKY today!! Stay away from me, haha!! I have no idea why, but just one of them days I guess!! So in order to try to set myself up for a better mood tomorrow I'm going to take 5 seconds now to list a few good things that have happened today (or in general):
  • a cozy bed
  • a loving wife
  • adorable pets
  • payday Friday!
  • amazing clients
  • a full schedule
  • workouts
  • food packed and tracked
  • yummy food
  • supportive family
  • sleep
  • zumba
  • zumba class participants who make me feel SO welcome
  • amazing WW members who keep me accountable on Facebook
  • yoga for the first time in FOREVER 
  • hot stone massage
  • rain shower massage
  • body scrubs
  • body wraps
  • good friends
  • Halloween parties
  • sleep
  • delicious breakfast (eggs, turkey sausage patty and light toast with cinnamon and truvia-SO GOOD!)
Today was wonderful! It was a super productive day! Very, VERY busy at work but thankfully I packed lunch last night (as I always do!) so I could go to Zumba AND yoga this a.m.!! Didn't realize how much yoga would help me feel looser...I didn't realize how sore and tight I actually was until I spent an hour and 15 minutes loosening up. It felt great and I'm definitely going to make it part of my Friday a.m. routine! An hour of Zumba followed by an hour and fifteen minutes of yoga then work!! Definitely sounds good to me.

Food is all packed and tracked for tomorrow and gym clothes are ready too, the plan is to get up and go for a quick run before work because I'm going to a party after work but I'm reallllly tired so we'll see what happens when the alarm goes off. Sleep is as important as exercise and healthy eating when you're trying to live a healthier lifestyle so I might sacrifice the workout for rest...I'm not 100% sure yet but either way I'm set up to succeed tomorrow so therefore I WILL!!

I Fell In Love Today

I fell in love today. It was the craziest feeling and one of the most amazing moments in my 29 years of life. I will never forget the day I stood in the Target dressing room looking at her. Admiring her. Seeing her strength and beauty despite her flaws...maybe even because of them. She was stunning. Absolutely radiant and proud. She was beautiful outside but not because she had a toned stomach, tanned flawless skin and a thigh gap; she was a different kind of beautiful. She was genuinely beautiful. I stood there staring at her and admiring her and I felt myself smiling; caught off guard by how I was feeling! Almost a little ashamed that she caught my admiring eye. But she didn't reject my admiration; instead she smiled back at me and before I knew it I was crying.

Time was suspended as I stood there weeping softly, hot tears rolling down my cheeks but I didn't feel embarrassed in her presence. I was overcome with emotion but shame was not one. With her standing there I I felt s…

Falling In Love Again

At Weight Watchers this week we were talking about being kind to yourself. I was asked when it was I decided to stop beating beating myself up and I started to cry the moment I said “it all started with a bikini”.
You can read that story here if you want to be caught up. 
I instantly felt my face flush as I realized I wasn’t going to be able to keep talking without tears rolling down my cheeks and I paused for a moment to look around the room. Was what I was about to do career suicide? What would my boss think if she walked into the meeting room and witnessed the leader having an emotional breakdown? 
My job as a leader is to facilitate a conversation among members, to create an environment where each and every person who walks through the door feels safe and supported and to ensure that each week members leave feeling like they got a figurative hug with a side of science.
It’s great to be warm and fuzzy and I love that Weight Watchers has moved past the days of a leader lecturing for 45 …

I was scrolling through Facebook yesterday and this article popped up on my news feed. I've been running for a while now and I figured it would probably have information I already knew because I know it all...obviously! But I clicked on it anyways, why not!?

And I'm so happy I did! I actually found it funny and I appreciated the reminders because even though I knew things before I read it I wasn't applying them to my runs...but as I read I realized how much this article was a metaphor for other aspects of my weight loss journey! I can apply these tips to more than running, and heres how:

1. Get your chin down! Keep your jaw relaxed. Being aware of tension in my body is super important for me and it's especially important I'm aware of tension in my jaw. I get stressed, I clench my teeth and what happens next? I'm STARVING. Why? Because I'm tense and anxious, I'm not actually in need of food! If I can catch the clench and get to the bottom of what's cau…
