Let’s talk about how I’m down to my lowest weight in 5 freaking months. Yeah I’m pretty damn excited. No headaches.  No light-headedness.  No killing myself with ridiculous amounts of exercise and no depriving myself of delicious foods. Aside from having to log everything I put in my mouth, I’m pretty excited about my current…

Active Day

So the good news is that I killed two hours of Les Mills classes today and I am not in zombie mode.  That is a major improvement from the last two times I attempted this.  I think it’s the combination of my improving stamina and a solid night’s sleep. And because I wore my Polar…

Crazy Nicole Has Arrived

It’s working! It’s working!  That’s really all I can think right now.  I’m now down 5.6 pounds since Wednesday.  That’s 4 days.  Insane. I can’t be totally sure if it’s the water I’m downing or the actual daily calorie deficit.  Either way, I’m feeling encouraged.  I needed this jumpstart to feel like I’m doing the…

Big Difference

Quick post today because even though it’s barely 10pm, I am freaking exhausted. So last night’s dinner with new friends went fantastically.  I’m really getting the hang of playing hostess.  Well, we ate on paper plates and I served boxed wine.  I’m not exactly the fancy type. I measured out plus logged my taco salad…

21 Days Part 2

21 Days

I’ve been talking about going gluten-free for awhile now.  I was waiting for our pantry to be clear of wheat products, so I figured it’d be a few more months.  And then last night happened. For the last few weeks, I’ve been feeling constantly bloated & gassy, full of headaches, and totally lethargic.  Basically, I’ve…
