The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world....– (via fitguru97) I rarely reblog quotes and stuff. But this one is awesome.
So, I went over my calories today, for like the first time in a really long time. To be fair, it was only by like 60 calories and I’m not stressing out about it. I knew if I ate my dessert, I would go over, but I have been more hungry the last few days then I have been in a while. I think it’s my body burning fat. Yay body! Anyway, I still ate good food, no junk, no binges. If you...
fitbygrad13 asked: After looking at so many of your post about HFCS I was inspired not to eat them.
But I don't know how to stop and where to stop. I was hoping for a little help with this?

New food labels →
aneclairtoremember: “The Obama administration wanted the package-front labels to emphasize nutrients that consumers might want to avoid, like sodium, calories and fat. But manufacturers insisted that they should also be able to use the labels to highlight beneficial nutrients, including vitamins, minerals and protein. The administration concluded that ‘in the end, the label was going to be...
I LOVE my hair. Most of the time. I thinking of getting a hair cut, but I really want to grow it out. Bangs don’t work cause my hair grows wayyyy too fast. I’ll probably just end up getting it trimmed….or something… ugh, I dunno! Anyone have any thoughts re:my hair? And now… completely off topic…. Sophie has an iPhone now! (can you see all the little...
Yoga Journal: Entry 1
For class we are suppose to do a yoga journal, so I thought I would write it here. Feel free to scroll past :-) I had quite a few yoga epiphanies. One of which was finding out I was hyper flexible. Who would have thought? (Put your arm up, let your wrist relax, using the other hand push your thumb towards your forearm, if it’s a inch or closer, you’re hyper flexible) The second...

Anonymous asked: Hi i love all your posts! But i have a q since youre in the "weight loss community". Do you know what happened to iamlosingit's tumblr? :(
A year and a half ago, I was a couch potato. Like the serious definition of the word. I would even ask my husband to get up to get me something that was barely a foot away. The clinical depression aside, I never wanted to move, or cook, or walk or like anything with any remote form of physical activity….let alone exercise of any variety. When I moved into my parent’s house, I...

I have gotten a couple of questions about how I started my journey/ how long have I been doing this… Well, I guess saying forever wouldn’t be helpful, so… In October 2009, I couldn’t find any clothes that fit me. I was practically living in sweats & pjs…on the couch. I barely even moved. Serious depression. I weighed in on the WiiFit and I couldn’t even...

Cooking is Exercise?
(I’m not offend trust me) Someone questioned me counting cooking as exercise. Yes, exercise might be a little strong, but it’s definitely a form of physical activity. Let’s put it this way. Think about thanksgiving and cooking for 4 hours straight and how EXHAUSTED you are afterwards. (and hungry) Not everyone may agree with me counting it as exercise. But when you spend at...

The biscotti was a nice little treat too! (tea with the bestie) Also, the chicken satay was even BETTER the next day, if that’s possible. I think it’s the most delicious thing I’ve ever made,...
It was really nice being back at yoga. My sophomore year of college I did yoga…once or twice a week for a semester. (this was my body then) See? I’ve always made ridiculous faces. Anyway. After taking yoga at the U, I started taking yoga once a week at a private studio. That was right around the time the depression got pretty bad, so I eventually stopped going. I had also gained...
Back from Yoga
The teacher was really nice. I COULD DO ALL THE POSES! Hurrah! My bell got a little in the way for a few of them though *shakes fist at belly* NOT FOR LONG THOUGH! HA HA! Anyway, I’m exhausted. Lack of sleep + yoga = a very very very sleepy Sarah. I didn’t really sweat though. To be fair, the room was kinda cold. MFP says 90 minutes of yoga = 389 calories. Hurrah. Sleepy.

Weigh in Wednesday: The "Mambo No. 5" Edition
*cough* I mean… I’m totes not singing that…. Anywho…. I’m back to 229.7. (read: NEVER IN THE 230s AGAIN THOUGH!) My weight is being all yo-yo-y/plateau-y. BUT because of my eating, I KNOW it’s not fat, it’s water weight. And with me just starting to work out again, that’s not surprising at all. Let’s put it this way, I would rather have...

Stretch & Tone Class.....
Loved my teacher!!!! She’s super awesome. Definitely would not call it stretch & tone though, I would call it Pilates. Yes, there was stretching, but it was more dance-y stretching and, also, weights. Sore (well, maybe not sore, but I feel like I can feel my muscles, if that makes sense) and very sweaty, BUT I FEEL F*CKING AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *bounces aboot* MFP estimates it at...
