Tips for Getting Back on Track

do it

This past week has been exceptionally hard and I keep having to stop and remember to give myself a break.  At no point in my life have I taken on so much, and it’s unfair to hold myself to unreasonably high standards of productivity. I’m days away from my final exam, worth 50% of my grade, …

A Beautiful Turn of Events

I’ve meant to write this for a while now.  Maybe I needed to experience everything and feel what I needed to feel.  You see, I’ve come to a lot of realizations lately.  I’ve been on a path to self-discovery and it’s been quite remarkable. It started around when the anxiety usually starts; exam time.  For …

The Game Plan

Honestly, since Christmas I’ve really struggled with maintaining my weight. This journey comes and goes in waves, and you never get a chance to really get comfortable.  Much like the fab diets, the phases of time where you work out 6 times a week and feel super driven, the “New Year, New Me” vibe… my …

The Do Over

Happy New Year! I’m unhappy to report that this is the first time I’ve written anything Fit Me Baby related in what feels like forever. Towards the end of 2017, things with school and work really started piling up and I had a decision to make.  I could continue to worry about writing meaningful blog …

Learn from the Past, Live in the Present, Believe in the Future

future

So often on this journey we look back on how far we’ve come.  We review pictures of our former body and self, bring out the old fat pants from the closet, remember the times we put ourselves down.  Some of my biggest pushes through the hard times in weight loss came from remembering how I’d …

The C Word

Cellulite.  Those bumps and lumps that show up on our legs, that creep up to our butts.  Crater-like signs of imperfection and another thing we hate about our bodies in our minds.  Yet another part of our body we try and cover up, like a dirty little secret hiding beneath our clothes.  We hate it.  We …

You’re Just A Cystie Person

I try to write about the real sides of my life.  The struggles, the ups & downs (even when it feels like I’m writing about more downs than ups), the awesome and the ugly.  I spent a few days this week debating on whether to write about my latest surgery and ultimately decided it should …

Weight Loss is Hard (A FitMeBaby Honest Post)

fail

Losing weight is hard.  There’s no denying it, and I’m not here to tell you otherwise.  I can preach about it being worth it, and tell you about my success along the way, but at the end of the day, dropping pounds and living healthy is hard.  The truth is that it does get easier, …

Time for Many Changes

Last week I took a few days off work to spend time with myself, do my own thing, worry a little less, and recoup from a very busy few weeks.  Despite being on my semester break between Summer and Fall, I felt like I’d continued going a million miles an hour, even after my last …

Fit My Lifestyle

I go back and forth on which seasons are easier to be healthier in.  Sure, Summer has great fresh fruits and sunshine that allows you to sweat throughout your day without even needing to workout (awesome).  But Winter (in Vancouver at least) gives you prime weather to not be outside, rather inside in a warm …
