24 Day Challenge: Day 8

Today I woke up crying – what an odd way to start the day! I didn’t have the best sleep last night because of Miley, she was crying and barking and she had me up at 12 and 3am. At 6am I woke up in tears, missing Charlie, feeling alone. How sad!! I got upContinue reading “24 Day Challenge: Day 8”

1 week down, 2.5 more to go!

Week one is done and I’m officially down 4lbs! I didn’t re-measure because I want to do the official halfway measurements on day 11 after the cleanse is over! I gotta tell you I see the biggest difference in my midsection – my legs and butt always take a long time to change, and myContinue reading “1 week down, 2.5 more to go!”

24 Day Challenge: Day 6

Before I fell asleep last night I set my alarm for 6:30am thinking that I would skip the gym and take a rest day since I’ve been going since Saturday without a break, but clearly my body had another agenda. I woke up this morning at 1/4 to 5AM! I wound up laying in bedContinue reading “24 Day Challenge: Day 6”

24 Day Challenge: Day 5

This morning I woke up before my alarm! Holy cow can you believe it?!

In class we did things like kettle bell swings, burpees, and a lotContinue reading “24 Day Challenge: Day 5”

24 Day Challege: Day 2

Today I went to the SPCA of Westchester’s Walk and Pet Fair with my dogs! We hung out at the ASC/KBVC booth chatting with many people who had good and some not so good experiences at our hospitals, but overall the vibe was good! I walked around, made some contacts at a local YMCA andContinue reading “24 Day Challege: Day 2”

24 day Challenge: Day 1

In an effort to be completely transparent with both my readers and my challengers – I decided that I would put my entire challenge experience out there. I thought this would be great for other people because they can see that they aren’t alone, and it would be great for me – to keep myselfContinue reading “24 day Challenge: Day 1”

Spartan Workout Tour

Today I went to a free Spartan workout as part of the Spartan workout tour. I won’t lie, I was a bit nervous – but as I arrived I saw people of all different shapes and sizes and my nerves began to ease.  I didn’t know what to expect other than burpees… Lots of burpees…Continue reading “Spartan Workout Tour”

Spartan training update: ED recovery & Spark

As I continue on my journey to recovery I find myself having many less binge episodes. In fact, I have been able to focus on training for the Spartan sprint in May and have had very little urge to binge.  I’ve been following a macro based plan, pretty well – but not 100% – whichContinue reading “Spartan training update: ED recovery & Spark”
