Hey, It's Okay!

We're back with the ever popular "Hey, It's Okay", where we discuss what we're totally fine with that happened during the week.

We're not bothered by...

Being a zombie in the morning. (Seriously, even as I know I start early morning training for my first 5K in May, mornings are not for me. A friend asked why I was up early one morning - work or work out? My response was that I can hardly function at that time.)

Skipping a day of laundry, even if you know that it's all you will be doing the next day. (Sometimes I wish the laundry would wash, dry, and fold itself.)

Ignoring a text as you fall asleep and feeling horribly guilty about it the next day. (The same would go for if I get a text as I was waking up. My brain can't comprehend basic motor skills at those moments.)

Avoiding Valentine's Day like the plague. (Some people call it Singles Awareness Day. I call it "Waiting For Discount Chocolate Day". Single and discount chocolate? Sign me up!)

Lastly, it's completely fine to have gray hairs! (At 32, I already have gray hairs. At first, I kind of freaked out but now, I have no problem with them. I embrace my glittery highlights!)

What's okay with you this week?

Weigh In Week 1

This year, I decided to start a weekly weigh in series, to show the progression of not only my running, my journey to losing weight.

Let's go back to November. I weighed myself one morning, and noticed I weighed 275 pounds. At one point at the end of 2015, I easily weighed over 300, probably close to 350 or 375. I knew I had to make a change.

Back in July weighing in at 300
I knew I was tired of being overweight and unhealthy, so that's why I started running.

You'll notice that I don't have any full-length before photos. I was so insecure about my weight, I made sure I didn't appear full-length in any pictures.

Goal weight: 210lbs
Current weight as of February 2nd: 245lbs

Next weigh in: February 9th or 10th

Did you have any new years goals to lose weight this year? How are you doing so far?

Apologies... And 2017 news!

It has been a few months since we last posted. A lot of things were happening, some not so good, here at the Edge Of Insanity household. 

We apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused, but we are happy to tell you that we are returning with fresher content, and more fun!

We also have some great things coming your way this year! Here are some new things we are rolling out soon:

We will be redoing how things look around here. We took a short poll just before our hiatus and many have said that while they like the menu bar, other things look a little disorganized. So within the next few weeks, we will be working on making things look more user-friendly and clean.

You can also expect weekly weigh-in posts! Many have expressed that while they enjoy seeing the "health" posts, they are more inspired by transformation posts. 

"Hey It's Okay" will return shortly. We have decided that instead of Tuesday, they will be posted on Thursday. Feel free to share your week on those! 

We cannot promise more recipes or crafts, but we'll try our best to at least post healthy recipes we make. 

We hope you all had a great holiday season and we're ready to make 2017 an awesome year!
