beauty in the breakdown

Hello! My name is Chloe. This is my Fitspo blog! I'm twenty and I have some goals! I want to be fit, healthy, and finally become the confident, sexy, badass woman I know I can be. I've already got the personality -- now I just need the confidence! Shouldn't be too difficult! ;)


What I do now: Jogging/running, swimming.


SW: 145 lbs as of 7/30/12
UGW: 115 lbs and October 2012 :)

{144, 143, 142, 141, 140, 139, 138, 137, 136, 135, 134, 133, 132, 131, 130, 129, 128, 127, 126, 125, 124, 123, 122, 121, 120, 119, 118, 117, 116, 115, 114, 113, 112, 111, 110}

At 120lbs, I'll buy myself something nice. :)


I bought some fish oil soft gel capsules (1000 mg) because my grandma recommended it to me. I heard it also helps you lose more weight when combined with exercise/good diet. Is this true?

Also…you have fishy breath?

Here’s my game plan for the week.

I’m going to try to go to the gym twice a day, starting tomorrow (too late to go twice today, and I have work that really needs to get done at home). I’m thinking going around 11am and then 7pm, cardio each time. I know I should try and lift weights or something, but for a quick fix, cardio will do.

Except my shins always hurt when I run, even when I’m at a comfortable pace and I don’t push myself very hard (something I know I’m guilty of). Le sigh.

Going to the grocery store in a few minutes and I’m going to pick up a few veggies and some tuna. Planning on eating basically salads and some chicken and tuna for the rest of the week, because obviously what I’m doing right now isn’t doing anything.

Also considering trying that Jilian Michaels detox water thing, even though I drink lots of unsweetened iced black tea every day. Hmm.

Honestly, just want to lose 5 lbs this week, whether that’s water weight or not, and eventually make my boobs smaller and face slimmer. Back problems and small shirts/big boobs are not a good combination. And no one likes a fat face. I certainly don’t! Can I blame depression on this weight gain?


My life just took some crazy turns. But I’m back for now!

Current weight: somewhere between 144-148 lbs.

This. Sucks. I’ve never been this heavy. I maintained 135 all through college, which sucked in its own right, but now I’ve gained 10 lbs from being back home! Must be all the food.

I want to look good when I meet up with some friends next week, so I’m back here to scour through tumblr and find what I need.

Goal weight is still 120-115 lbs. Want to lose around 30 lbs, could stand to lose 20 lbs.

Attempting to lose 5 lbs in a week. Wish me luck!


I need to stick to some sort of plan when it comes to food, but I have no idea how to go about that, since I eat cafeteria food. I could try and find a schedule, yes, but I don’t know what the best options are, what I should avoid at each meal, etc.

I can work out and think I’m eating healthy, but I’m not seeing any change, and I need someone to actually guide me through the process of eating healthier.

Things I have learned:

  1. Eat enough during the day. Tonight at boxing, I felt really lightheaded and dizzy and sick after about…fifteen minutes in to the workout. Turns out, I only ate one thing today — and it wasn’t enough. It’s all fixed now, I heated up some chili I made and whipped up a to-die-for tropical mango/banana/green tea smoothie, and it was so good. Drink water and eat enough to keep from feeling like you’re going to pass out!
  2. I weighed myself today and it said 134.8, which means I’ve lost a pound. Not a whole lot for a week, I’d like to lose more, but hey, it’s a start. Measurements on wednesday will tell if I’ve shrunk any!
  3. That’s pretty much it. I’m procrastinating on homework that was due this past friday. Get off tumblr!

So I weigh 135.8 lbs.

No real significant change there, although I feel bigger than that. So do my boobs. No friend. I still would like to get down to about 115 lbs, 110 if I want to push it. That just feels like a good number to me, especially since I’m only 5’4”. Going to use MyFitnessPal again and get back on track. Hmm yes.

On the plus side, though, I went to Zumba tonight and it was so much fun. Sure, I looked incredibly ridiculous, but I got all sweaty and glowy afterwards and it was a good workout. So, I’m happy with that. I also finally got my package from my mom the other day, and she shipped out all of the Christmas gifts I couldn’t pack in my suitcase — including my blender! So excited to get some smoothie ingredients and start drinking them all the time.

Tomorrow is boxing, and then I think another Zumba class on Thorsday (yes, Thorsday!), and then sword-fighting on Friday from 5-7pm, possibly until 8 if I’m lucky. Saturday is free, and Sunday is off in the dojo practicing grappling with a bunch of guys. LOL.

That is all.

Boxing final & a slight revelation

I have my boxing ‘final’ in an hour or so. Freaking out majorly.

I mean, I know my combination, so I don’t know why I’m freaking out!

It’s all I’ve been dreaming about for the past two days now. Aaaaaaagh.

But I’m definitely going to get those pink wraps! :)

Also, I’ve been checking myself out in the mirror lately, and despite the fact that I’m a bit upset that I’m not completely toned, I can definitely see that there’s some fat loss/muscle gain going for me. When I lie down on my side, my stomach used to stick out more, but it’s not doing that so much right now. And when I tense up my muscles, they feel much harder and a little bit closer to the surface. So I’m getting somewhere!

The only thing now, is, once I am fit, how do I lose weight? I’m not really comfortable being at 135lbs, I’d much rather take that down than remain that weight, to be honest. So how do I go about doing that?

I’ve never worn one before, and it’s not because my parents wouldn’t let me. I’m going to be 20 in a little over a month…it’s time I felt confident enough to wear one.
