Downs and Ups

IMG_20150619_152848

At weigh in yesterday I was up half a pound. After the scale I thought about that morning; standing in front of the mirror brushing my teeth, feeling like my stomach was finally starting to get smaller (maybe because it was morning) and wondered how I could feel smaller when I had gained.  When the …

The Goal

LEAH

It’s official; I’m now within a healthy weight range. If I wanted to, I could stop losing now and maintain my weight, not have to pay for Weight Watchers and be considered healthy. Of course, my aim has always been to be healthy AND fit, so I don’t plan to stop here. Picking a goal …

This Is Me.

When I started this blog as excited as I was, one of my worries was that I’d only be able to write about losing weight. I’m Fit Me Baby and that’s what I’ll have to talk about, getting fit and losing weight. How do you stick to one subject when you have so much to …

24 Things

“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path” –  Buddha Fitness and a healthy lifestyle have made me stronger physically, but the past few years have made me tougher mentally and emotionally. Something you should understand about me is that I did not walk …

Cardio Kickboxing For the Win

As I’ve mentioned before, the fearlessness and drive to try new things when you’re living a fit life is amazing. Two years ago I didn’t really exercise, never mind testing out different classes at local rec centres for fun. On Monday night my two girlfriends and I finally made it to the cardio kickboxing class …

Life’s a Hike.

This past weekend my boyfriend and I woke up early on a Saturday morning, grabbed a coffee, and hit the road to hike 8km around beautiful Buntzen Lake. I used to loathe hiking. I was always the slow one at the back, huffing and puffing and praying to god that it was almost over. This …

Numbers

Dieting has always been about numbers for me. It’s what I based success on. I’ve been on Weight Watchers and living a healthy life for 690 days. That’s 98 weeks and change.   .5 is the average lbs lost over those 98 weeks and change. 15lbs is what I’ve worked up to lifting for arms (each, …
