It's been a very long time since I've written. As you can see, I wasn't kidding in the Introduction when I said that I'm no good at keeping a journal lol. I was doing pretty well for about a month there, blogging every day, sometimes two or three times a day. But eventually, I fell off the blogging wagon.

This pattern is repeatedly woven throughout my life. The most notable example is my approach to dieting and exercise. I've said before that I often have an all-or-nothing personality, meaning that I will do something (i.e. going to the gym) to such an extreme that I burn out and never set foot in a gym for months afterwards.

I'm just now breaking that pattern in terms of my journey to weight loss, but I really need to break it in all aspects of my life. However, in all fairness to myself, I have to say that burning out wasn't the only reason why I haven't written...

(1) This is gonna sound like a total cop-out, but I have been SWAMPED!!! The life of an entrepreneur is much busier than I ever expected. Juggling that with school, work, and working out has been hard.

(2) I keep injuring myself, so I can't work out as hard as I did before, which makes for boring blogging.

(3) I keep getting sick! Last week was particularly bad because I was running a high fever that would not break. The doctor thinks it's strep. I'm on antibiotics and back to work today for the first time in a week.

Thanks to my swollen throat, which made it painful to eat, I'm now officially back under 190. Yay! Thanks strep! (*sarcasm*) The downside is that I can't talk or hear very well, and every time I want to eat, I have to take a Tylenol first :(

Can't wait until my body gets itself together...ears, throat, and that I can start working out again. Gah!

Today's weight: 188.5
Total pounds down: 35.5
To 165: 23.5
To 139: 49.5


  1. It sounds like this is your body's way of asking for mercy. :)

    I'm glad you're getting some rest, although it's at the expense of your general health. I hope you feel better soon and then when you work out again, take it easy! :)

    Thanks for posting!

  2. Hey Mel! Yeah I think you're right. I've learned that she (my body) is very strong-willed, and refuses to be ignored lol.

    Thanks a lot. I will definitely listen next time. How are things going for you?

  3. Glad you're back I pray you feel better real soon. Blessings girl.

  4. Thanks Natalieh! I appreciate it. How are you doing?

  5. Woot Woot you go girl!
