Hello everyone and welcome to week 24 in the quest of a few internet friends who are trying to get healthy! We want to motivate one another and help each other get on the right track by working out, eating right, and reaching a great state of mind in the process. Join us weekly as we share our personal journey’s and stats to show you all that if we can do it, so can you!


This past weekend I refeeded. For those of you who do not know what it is, well you should Google. I know that my definition of a refeed is way different than what the IIFYM program says. For me it meant eating whatever the heck I wanted and not feeling guilty about it. So that is what I did on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. I had real ice cream, french fries, pizza, a greasy burger and it was all wonderful, while I was eating it that is. By Monday I was tired, cranky, and felt like crap. But since I have been following this diet since March, I was craving a break. But as of yesterday I am back to the grind and I feel about 100000% better. I did not gain, but I am happy to report that I was able to put on jeans today that two months ago I was not able to fit in AND I did not need to use a Spanx. I call that a win!  Wanna chat about diet or exercise? Tweet me @Sarindre or follow me on MyFitnessPal as korngirl723. Have a great week!

I wish I had amazing news haha but life is still pretty much up in the air right now, at least food wise we’ve been good here! I’m sure that will help haha however with packing and moving this weekend things are pretty much insane! Although I bet I am getting more exercising packing and moving than I was getting before! Hope the rest of you all are doing well!
Starting weight: 310.5

I don’t have too much to report this week, which I guess isn’t a bad thing. I got in a few nice outside runs last week, which is always preferable to the treadmill. Although, the treadmill did finally get moved to the basement, as opposed to the garage, so that is an improvement!! I am nearing the final season of Parenthood on Netflix, and I have plans to rewatch Bloodlines before I start the new season, so even the treadmill hasn’t been too bad lately. I also finally retired my Pearl Izumi N3 running shoes for – drumroll, please – some Pearl Izumi N3 running shoes. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I did trade my teal and grays for some pink and yellows (aptly nicknamed “Pink Lemonade” in my Garmin Gear Tracker).
For once, no complaints here! I hope this continues into next week!

TW – 20 miles

LW – 51 miles
MTD – 104.13 miles
YTD – 1155.48


Another pretty good week. I managed to keep up with my gym going, still doing my 4 day splits. I did forego leg day this week as I had a LARP this weekend that I knew would see me put in 10-15 miles over the course of it. The scale is still moving in a downward slope, not always by as much as I think it should, but people have started to notice and comment on the differences they are seeing in me. So that is definitely a good sign.

Starting Weight: 215.6

Weight at the beginning of the week: 209.6

End of Week: 208.8


Starting weight: 213 (3/1)

Last week: 198 (6/3)

This week: 199 (6/10)

Goal weight: 190

It was a little bit of a rough week, fitness-wise. My workouts were fine, but I pretty much sabotaged them with a weekend bachelor party for my older brother. Someone brought a nacho cheese machine. Nothing else needs be said. I followed through with my plan to make it to the gym three times last week. On day 1, I lifted, focusing on chest, upper back, core, and legs. On day 2, I ran 2.3 miles on the treadmill starting at 6.5 mph and edging up to 8 mph when I finished. I also did 2 miles on the stationary bike. On day 3, I lifted, focusing on arms, shoulders, legs, and core. I did have a little activity with this weekend with water skiing, but lets not kid ourselves. The food negated all of that! Plan is to stick with the general workout plan for this week and try to recover from the poor food choices.


Dear Diary

Pfft. That’s me blowing raspberries at my non-existent routine. I can’t wait until we move and I can get into a proper habit of Exercise/Swim/Walk rinse and repeat. At least I’m watching what I eat. The bonus is, I do love the local veggies so much, that my lunch these days usually consists of salad. This coming week is packing week for us (again) so it might be a bit of stretch (lol) to get some exercise in. As always, your ever diligent clumsypixie. <3
