Round 2 of the Fix is over!

Well we've ended our 2nd round of the 21 day fix! Now, I started this blog with the intent of being honest and accountable with my weight loss journey. So it's in that mindset that I have to tell you my whole heart wasn't in it this last time. I don't know why- maybe I got arrogant from my first round and thought I was all of a sudden a weight losing goddess? Maybe I figured I'd just keep losing weight after such a great round?

I have no clue.

Regardless, I'm the only one that suffered from my empathetic attitude. In 3 weeks I lost 2 pounds, though I did still manage to lose 6 inches from my body.

That brings my final weight loss total in 2 rounds (though technically a round and a half, if we count my laziness =P) to 17 lbs and 16 inches!




Not too shabby, huh!? I mean really, 2 lbs in 3 weeks is still great. 6 inches in 3 weeks is still great. But I constantly found excuses to not work out, or eat "treats" when Heaven knows I don't need them.

Clean eating or not, a treat is still a treat.

SO. In the interest of meeting my 30th birthday goal (you know, to look like I'm wearing Spanx without actually wearing them), I'm starting a challenge group on March 21st!

Oh yeah, I also signed up as a Beachbody coach. Did I tell you guys that?? I seriously love the 21 day fix though and I want other people to do it with me! =) 

Now, back to the challenge group. It's going to run March 21st-April 10th and I basically want everyone to do it with me. =P There'll be giveaways (word on the street is there's a $25 Amazon gift card at stake. I don't know- it's a rumor!), silly inspirational sayings, far too much optimism for any 1 person to handle, tons of recipes, and more importantly- a lifestyle change.

If you're interested in signing up, purchase your challenge pack HERE* and drop me a note so I can add you to the private facebook group! It's completely private, and there will be a "cone of silence" placed on it so everyone has privacy and can speak freely. =)

*Note: I know, $140 is a bit steep. Buuuuut you get a month of Shakeology which in itself is normally $130/month. So you're basically buying a month of Shakeology & getting the 21 day fix program for FREEEEEEE! =) I'm crazy cheap as you all know, so I'm trying to offer perspective. =)

Shame Eating

I found the above image on the interwebs and it always makes me laugh. All.the.time. It's kinda true though, right? IF you've ever had any kind of food addiction then you know the sweet sweet embrace of "one more" handful of kettle corn (ahem), or "one more" piece of bread, or whatever.

I was joking with my co-worker that I might as well be shame eating out of the Costco-sized bag of Kettle corn on my counter in the dark, licking the sweet and salty remnants off my fingers. That I can't be trusted alone with it. That I grab a bigger-than-small bowl and PILE it up, lamenting the few rogue pieces that make it to the floor.

Another colleague overheard us and said she used to do that with angel food cake. She would sit it on the passenger side and just drive, picking at the fluffy confection. I know a girl who could knock out an entire family size container of Sara Lee pound cake.

So friends, those are a few confessions. Using the powers of anonymity that y…

Frustrations & Fertility

The Bearded Wonder and I got married on a sunny Saturday afternoon in September 2013. Barring a few minor hiccups, the day was pretty perfect. Per the (unfortunate) societal norms, people started asking questions like "So, next comes baby, right?" or "When are you guys going to start popping out kids?". 
Between me, you, and the Internet, I was a virgin when I got married so I was in ZERO rush to start having kids. I wanted to enjoy being married for awhile, hopefully travel, and just settle in to living with this person I'd never lived with before. 
It's funny to me now, looking back on those first few years. The Bearded Wonder had some job transitions which led to some tight finances. We got by (not without help), but I was in a constant state of fear that I'd get pregnant. We were just floating with the 2 of us, but adding a baby in the mix? Yikes. Definitely not the right time. I remember calling my best friend in a panic, "I'm craving hot…

Body Image & All That Jazz

This is a post I've been mulling over for a couple of days and thinking of how to approach. It's been prompted because people keep picking up on little nuggets in the blog and asking me questions, so I thought I might as well address everything here in an honest and factual manner. It's about to get real up in here, so grab a snuggie and some ice cream water and let's see what happens.

This may be a trigger post, so feel free to skip the red text below

I suppose the best place to start is with my eating disorder.

Well, "under control" eating disorder is more appropriate.
Anyone who's ever had an eating disorder of any variety knows that it never really goes away. You learn to overcome it 98% of the time, but with the occasional yearn for your former vice or the even more rare slip back into bad habits.

I became bulimic when I was about 16, and we had a fast and heavy kind of relationship. I remember watching a L…
