Getting Back on Track (Winner Announced!)


I am so sorry that I did not announce the winners yesterday! Ugh. Yesterday was hard… My fiance had grabbed some of my dad’s old stuff before my mom just abandoned it all, and we just found it again yesterday when looking for some important documents. In the envelope, it had pictures of my dad, his report cards from kindergarten to 8th grade, and some news from the naval academy. I broke down looking through it all. It has only been 8 months since he passed away, and I have pretty much just avoided anything that reminds me of him. Especially pictures. Needless to say, all responsibilities yesterday kind of went out the window. I ended up being really bad and hardly ate anything all day yesterday and then ate WAY too much last night (scale was not happy this morning). It was stupid, but I am feeling a lot more motivated today and I need to hold on to this motivation (at least for the rest of summer!).

Anyway, the winner… Dun Dun Dun…

I told my fiance to pick a number 1-10 without thinking…

And the answer was….9! So that means Jessica Begin wins! Yay!! So Jess, send me an email at with your choice of prize and your address. =D Thanks everyone who entered! I will definitely be doing another giveaway in the near future.


My stomach is definitely upset with my eating habits lately. It hurts pretty much after every time I eat. Definitely need to work on that this weekend and all of next week. I am going to go back on a “no processed sugar” detox for a week. No alcohol. No sweets. Just yummy fruits and vegetables and meat. I am also thinking about picking up a blender this weekend and trying some of these green smoothies I have been seeing everywhere! If you have a favorite green smoothie recipe, please share!  I am thinking of starting my mornings with that. I also need to drink more water…

So goals this weekend:

1. Buy a blender tomorrow and pick up some fresh fruit and vegetables up at the Farmer’s Market. Have a Green Smoothie every morning for a week, starting Sunday.

2. Start drinking 60 oz of water. I have been really bad about my water in-take.

3. Run 2 miles today, 4 miles tomorrow, and 1.5 miles on Sunday. Lots of running but I definitely need to get back on track with that. The weather has been questionable the past week, but it is really no excuse.

I really want to get under the 200 mark by the end of July. 18 pounds. I can do this. I know I can.

Just need to focus up.

I will do this.

  1. Congrats to the winner! Way to go Jess!

    I’m totally with you on getting back on track. Crazy how a change in schedule and the presence of certain someones can throw things askew – but we can be stronger than that!
