Journey to Wellness 11.6

Happy Wednesday loves! I feel like this is going to be a super long week at work, but at least we are half way done. The Dream Job is kicking my butt lately…and then because I am working in NYC, I keep trying to have a better social life too. This leaves me happy because I get to see my friends…but drained since I used to spend that time home.


Mind// On Monday I talked about conjuring your desires, and I feel that it really helped me calm down a bit. I’ve been a tad wired up and having faith that my intentions and desires are known and in the works is really helpful.

I also had a mini blog meet up with Patty, Cassandre, and Nellie last night and blog friends always energize me. We all work, have families,  and maintain a blog so you are surrounded by people that just get it. Plus the food was amazing at Serafina on 55th and Broadway.


Body// I couldn’t remember if I mentioned this already OR if I typed it in a post that I am planning for later….but I found medical records from 2005 that I submitted to live in college dorms. The university needed a full vaccination report and on that was also my weight.

 8 years later….I weigh the same exact amount.

I was shocked! I was expecting to see that I was in the 140s or 150s, but nope! I was 167lbs in the summer of 2005. But my body looks and feels so different! For some reason, this comforted me and made me feel a lot better about the progress I made from my highest weight back in April 2011 of 185lbs.

Another body moment this week was going on my scale to check my body fat. I’m officially below 30% body fat! My weight didn’t go down, but my  body composition is showing improvement,  so I am too excited!

How was your week?
Have you ever found an old medical record that you could compare your current weight too?
Do you measure your body fat?

    I think maintaining weight at this day and age is hard so I think it’s awesome that you still weight the same. And body composition (as you pointed out) is much more than just a number on a scale.

    I do have a pair of calipers but measuring your own body fat is hard. It’s much easier to measure someone else. I also have a body fat scale but those things aren’t really accurate. I can go weigh myself before and after peeing and it will give me two different body fat numbers that are hugely different. I usually go with the one that says I have the lesser body fat. LOL!

    • HAHAHAHA! Don’t we all… I have 2 scales… and sometimes I spot check. AND I always go with the one that reads the most favorable number.

  3. I feel your pain trying to maintain a full-time blog, a full-time job and a full-time social life. It’s a lot! But you really seem like you have things together! 🙂

    • I have got to try to be like you all! 🙂 & thank you! It is a work in progress.

    That is awesome! I wish I weighed the same from 8 years ago! 😉 you look fabulous! I’m nervous to check my body fat. I know it won’t be pretty.

    I also wish I had some blog friends turn in real life friends to get together. I’m always slightly jealous 🙂

    • Everyone carries body fat differently, so you may be surprised!

      Well you are only a stone throw away from NYC, right? Next time you are in town we can schedule a link up! I think of you as a friend IRL anyways, lol.

  5. Look at you blogging on the go! I saw yall checked in I think! So fun that you can hang with each other whenever you feel like it!

    11.6.13 ·
    • I’m trying, girlie! 🙂

      It’s always so hard to coordinate schedules, but when it works, we always have fun. Wishing you were closer too!

    Yay for the low body fat!! I’ve never checked mine, I am too scurred. So good seeing you last night!

    • I was scared at first, but my trainer said it could be a better & more motivational measurement of my success since your body fat can change but your weight stays the same. Sadly… I have to do them together unless I get my bf measured at the gym so I see my weight anyways. lol

      AND YES! I had a great time seeing you last night, as always. Going to buy my BlogHer ticket today too.
