I've lost 185lbs, and then gained some back.
But I'm kicking ass and striving for my ultimate goal: A 200 lb loss.
Working all mental, physical and emotional aspects of being healthy, happy and fit. You'll see my ups and downs here, because I'm proud to be imperfect!

Workouts like our Saturday smack down (I think now called
The Monster), and Sunday’s Superbowl Slaughter are brutal in their own special
way, mostly, I think, with the longer interval for each is one of the reasons.
In The Monster, work intervals are 1 minute, and in Superbowl Slaughter they
are 48 sec (after Super Bowl 48 – Ha!). Very little rest/recoup in between. For
This may not even be a physical issue. It’s a mental issue.
There is SO MUCH TIME for you to talk yourself up, or talk yourself down. You
look at the clock and there is still 25 seconds to go and you are thinking that

It’s about school. It’s about parenting, relationships, work. It’s about life.
Because if you don’t keep plugging away. If you don’t keep moving forward, you
are just going to get run over.
Today I have to pleasure of battling Blackout with long-ish
intervals as well (40 seconds).
40 seconds that I can turn into self-defeat or
