The Fit Empress: Updates from the Empire of Me!

1205068_SMJPGI’m back, and the Fit Empress has a new home!  Follow me as I move through my journey of fitness, life and fun.

I started this blog in November 2013 as a way to document my weight loss journey (still in progress).

Flash forward to July 2014 and here I am: Continue reading

Back from VayCay and Making Plans

I finally have a few months with limited travel – time to focus!

I survived 3 weeks at World Cup without gaining any weight – all that walking and heat actually shaved off another couple of pounds despite all the food and alcohol!

Given my good fortune – I’m taking it as a sign to keep the train going and jumpstart my plans to reach my initial goal weight by October 1st.  Roughly 2lbs a week for the next 14 weeks – that’s actually pretty reasonable.

Now it’s a matter of strength, focus and willpower.

I think I can do it – therefore I will.  That’s actually going to be close to two months away from the 1 year mark of when I started this journey, so I really want to meet my goals by week 52.

My travel schedule picks up pretty significantly again this Fall and I want to be ready for the fun to come without worrying about how I look.  I’ve lost over 30 lbs already, but there is still much work to do!

On November 24, 2013, this number was 229.1.

5 months later and this was the number on my scale this morning. I’ve now lost 33.5 pounds. It’s taken a lot of work and discipline, but in some ways, it has been a very natural change. I still have more weight to lose, but I’m so much closer than I was!

Stay focused, even if you get off track. The results will come.


Alright – I’m ready to DTOX!  Planning to do a 3-day juice cleanse this week to get my body reset.  This past weekend was fun, but I’m sure all the alcohol, coffee and brunch food took their toll. 

3 days of juices – let’s see how this goes…. I’ll post my experiences here so you all can share my pain.

Rachel Frederickson, The Biggest Loser, and Losing Weight Fast

I’m glad to hear she gained back 20 lbs.  Her final show weight was just disturbing to me personally.   If anything, this shows that weight loss is a journey, not a destination.  Losing physical weight is just part of the process.  The mental road is much tougher. Good luck to Rachel!
