Weigh In: DietBet Results

in Weight Loss

If you remember, I needed to lose 10.7 lbs (putting me at 256.9) in 4 weeks to win Brooke’s DietBet.  It ended on Tuesday so I weighed in.


So I didn’t win the bet.  It sucks that I won’t get any money out of the pot but I refuse to be upset about this.  I lost 8.4 lbs in 4 weeks.  I used this as a way to kickstart my weight loss and get myself on track.  That’s nothing to scoff at!  Now I just need to keep it going…



What We Tell Ourselves VS What We Do

by Stephanie July 23, 2014

I read an article posted in a Facebook group yesterday afternoon.  In typical internet fashion the title was super catchy:  The 60 Second Guide to Learning the Awful Truth About Yourself. Doesn’t that sound like the kind of article you want to read?  I’m not sure I would have except it was recommended by someone I […]

Sunday Summary: Olympic Tri Training Week 2

by Stephanie July 22, 2014

I didn’t get my workout summary post up on Sunday but it’s going up today.  Thanks for that kind person that followed the spirit of #justtrollin and #tribelove and asked me where it was! The hill repeats were tough.  Sheesh.  At first I was all “sprint up the hill!”  Then I came to my senses and […]

To make something happen you’ve got to want it badly.  Big changes, big goals don’t just happen.  Why do you want it?  Does thinking about it make you feel alive?  That desire is what will take you through the hard times. What do you desire?

Recipes I’ve Tried Recently #3

by Stephanie July 18, 2014

I love cooking but I’m not much for creating my own recipes yet.  I don’t feel like what I do without a recipe is that special.  It’s a lot of stir fry and such.  I’m not Chopped champion level but I’m working on it. The three recipes in this roundup were really great.  I would […]

Weigh In: Back Home

by Stephanie July 17, 2014

Since I’ve been home I’ve been doing pretty well with my workouts but my eating has been a little off.  I have been tracking, most of the time.  I need to do better about that.  Feel free to ask me if I’m doing it and get on my case if I’m not!  Still, a loss […]

Monday Motivation: The Strongest People…

by Stephanie July 14, 2014

This quote speaks to me.  I’ve chosen to share my struggle with depression here but my coworkers and others who interact with me don’t know.  They don’t see how I struggle sometimes.  It makes me see others differently.  I think it makes me more compassionate.  We never really know what someone else is dealing with, […]

Sunday Summary: Olympic Tri Training Week 1

by Stephanie July 13, 2014

This week was a good start but I did take too many days off and I only got in one strength session when I was hoping for more.   The Body Pump class was fun and I definitely hope to work it in to my regular routine.  Only if my friend Aimee keeps going with […]

She really wanted an Independence Day race that supported the military so we actually drove 90 minutes to Braselton, […]
