Just when I thought I had control over the television, or more date nights with my boyfriend, football eases it’s way back into my life. Don’t get me wrong, I like football, but I’m way more interested in the Food Network or horrible reality shows. In just a few short weeks, my living room is…

I’m using my new iPad to tumble currently so I think it’s just part of the app :)
The calorie counting app I use is MyFitnessPal! For those of you who asked.
It and the CalorieCount app are my favorites. I’ve just been using MFP the longest!

New year, new motivation.
Hi everyone! I know it’s been a while since I’ve been really active (you know, like I used to), but with the new year underway and quite a few newly acquired pounds, it’s time to (once more) get back in shape.
I’m back where I started a year ago: 195 pounds, 75 pounds down from my starting weight of 270. Unfortunately that’s a 25 pound gain from my lowest weight of 170 in May of last year.
I’ve got a new workout buddy, a new game plan (one that hopefully cuts drinking out of my life for good!), and a new motivation to get my ass back in shape (for the 30 millionth time…)
This is my last semester in college and I want to live it as healthily as possible. I want to get the body I’ve always wanted, and I’m hoping this will be the last time I fall of the wagon to such an extreme degree.
Some of you have been with me since the pre-New Zealand days, and some of you have only just begun to follow me. Thank you all for sticking around for so long, without such a wonderful and inspirational support system none of my weight loss would be possible.
With the new year, you should expect from me:
-daily calorie intakes (when possible)
-lots of pictures of me at the gym
-the same informative and helpful posts I usually post
-a serious lifestyle change
I’ve done this yo-yoing for too long. It’s time for my last strive for healthy, to—once and for all—get the healthy body I’ve always wanted and have come so close to having.
Thank you guys for all of your support over the years! I won’t let you down.
Gym opens tomorrow.
And Mauren v.2013 will be underway.
Merry Christmas, my beautiful fitblr family!
Looking at pictures from May is making me realize just how far I’ve fallen off the bandwagon.
I looked so happy and healthy in all of those pictures.
And now I just feel really, truthfully ugly because I’ve gained (a lot of) weight since then. And I HATE feeling this way. More than anything in the world.
Looking at those pictures is re-inspiring me to get back on track. I think I’m going to do a full introduction re-vamp with the New Year (how cliche of me) but my healthy choices literally start now.
I can’t keep coming back to this dark place, because it’s so hard to get out of.
