Month 1 is almost over.
Friday, November 30, 2012      3 comments

It is hard to believe I've been going at this for over 4 weeks. Besides the 2 cheat days I allowed, I've kept on track. I've gone over by 100-150 calories a couple times, but I don't fret about it. I haven't wavered and I'm still as motivated to... Read more
Water intake
Wednesday, November 14, 2012      0 comments

I feel like I wasted an entire week of potential weight loss by not drinking enough water. I was unknowingly not drinking nearly as much as I thought. I lost only .6 even though I stayed under 1,400 calories/day and my protein and carb intake wa... Read more
Anthem ad on Sparkpeople
Friday, March 16, 2012      0 comments

Does it enrage anyone else? The constant pop-down ad really pisses me off! It always seems to show up when I'm in the middle of typing or tracking something. GRRRRR! Sparkpeople.com, PLEASE GET RID OF THIS AD, or at least disable it so it doesn... Read more
Vitamins make me gag
Wednesday, March 14, 2012      2 comments

Does the taste of vitamins, especially the B variety, make anyone else gag or actually throw up when they taste them? I have to plug my nose and have actual food as a chaser to eat immediately after I take my daily vitamins to cover the taste le... Read more
Clothing sizes...

My ultimate goal is to get down to a comfortable size 6. By comfortable I mean things aren't tight, I don't have to strain to fit into it, no "muffin top", etc. You know what I mean. I've never been a size 6. My lowest as a teenager and early 20... Read more
How many calories are you really eating?
Friday, March 09, 2012      0 comments

There are 4 calories in every gram of protein and carb, 9 calories for every gram of fat. At the end of a day of tracking your food, open the calculator on your computer/phone and do the multiplication with your final numbers to see what you rea... Read more
This altitude is killing me
Friday, March 09, 2012      3 comments

I live in Colorado. I'm over 6,500 feet up where I live. When I used to run in Okinawa (basically sea level) I would warm up at 3.5 mph and it was no problem. Here I start off at 2.5 and 3.5-4 is fast! I feel like such a wimp. :-) Training here ... Read more

Each goal I set will be a loss of 10% of my weight. No more "I want to lose some crazy ass number!" Setting smaller goals will make it feel more attainable.... Read more

We bought a treadmill and it should be here in a couple weeks. Time to get my bottom on that thing and run like a mad woman. I don't know how easy that will be in the beginning since I'm in Colorado and over a mile up, but one step at a time. :-... Read more

On September 1st I embark on a 3 week long, 4,000 mile solo road trip from Colorado to Baltimore and back. During that time I will meet a bunch of online friends for the first time (reason for going to Maryland), and I will see my dad's side of... Read more

Why do we obsess over the number on the scale when we are seeing changes in our bodies? I remember back in 2006 I was working out 5-6 times a week for 3 or 4 weeks and didn't weigh myself at all in that time. Both my husband and I saw defi... Read more
