If only every day were like this
Saturday, August 09, 2008      3 comments

Today I went out walking before lunch, to make sure I got out for a walk before the rain came. I walked a mile, and am over 5000 steps for the day! After lunch I did my usual workout, which completely kicked my butt. What they say about h... Read more
Time to sit down and plan
Thursday, August 07, 2008      5 comments

I've been having trouble with meals this past week because I haven't made myself sit down and plan meals all that well. I certainly haven't been carrying through on cooking them! This needs to stop. Today, in addition to finishing abo... Read more
It's not just a miracle
Wednesday, August 06, 2008      4 comments

Today I was down 1.2 at WI -- I was amazed! I need to stop being amazed and just accept that even when I'm not eating "the best" or not getting in as many APs as I'd like, I've still made a huge change in how I live and eat. That change is wha... Read more
Failing to plan
Monday, August 04, 2008      1 comments

I'm having trouble getting back into the swing of things, food-wise. Today I had a theoretical plan, but got caught up in unpacking the box with my jewelry in it, and setting up my jewelry box. While it's great that I finally unpacked the ... Read more
Things I'm DONE with
Sunday, August 03, 2008      3 comments

As of 2 August 2008, I'm DONE! - I'm DONE with trying to make my body conform to others' standards - I'm DONE with not living my life to the fullest - I'm DONE carrying this extra weight around - I'm DONE wondering whether the... Read more
No fat-free cheese for me!
Saturday, August 02, 2008      3 comments

Oh my, that was unpleasant. When I started doing WW Core I had major digestive issues. While I thought some of it might have been connected to trying fat-free sour cream or ff cheese, my gut was so messed up by the change in food (fiber, o... Read more
I'm married!
Thursday, July 31, 2008      9 comments

Wheeeee! My hope to keep on top of Spark during the days leading up to, and immediately after, my wedding was apparently overly optimistic. It's been a wonderful few days, and I'm looking forward to posting more about them soon. I've ... Read more
Here, sort of
Sunday, July 20, 2008      1 comments

First, I want to apologize to all of my friends. I've been trying to deal with wedding stuff for the past several days, so I haven't been keeping up with people's blogs. I'll be back soon, I promise! Despite the craziness I'm still gettin... Read more
I like this kind of miracle
Wednesday, July 16, 2008      6 comments

I'm not quite sure how this was possible, but I'm down 2.8 from last week -- despite my bachelorette night binge! I'm definitely not complaining and am glad that I managed to keep doing something right while I was away. I haven't had time ... Read more
Better at home!
Monday, July 14, 2008      2 comments

I'd thought that maybe I was exaggerating how much easier it is for me to be OP when I'm in CT, but nope -- the difference is nearly miraculous. I've been eating Core practically without thinking about it since getting back home, and this m... Read more
Another challenging day
Wednesday, July 09, 2008      4 comments

Today wasn't challenging the way yesterday was, but it was one of those days when all I wanted to do was chuck my program. I've been going to WW meetings for 7 weeks now. I think that may be the longest I've ever that I've ever succeeded ... Read more
Friend's twins update
Wednesday, July 09, 2008      2 comments

As of the last update this morning, my friend L's twins made it through the night in utero, and seem to have no current plans to change that. ;) They were able to stop labor this time, but aren't taking any more chances -- L is stuck in the ho... Read more
In short ...
Tuesday, July 08, 2008      3 comments

I'm almost ready to elope. It's been a trying day ever since it began -- yes, starting at/about midnight. I was already feeling frustrated about wedding and friendship stuff when I found out that a friend, L, has gone into premature labor ... Read more
Okay, I'll cop to it, finally:
Saturday, July 05, 2008      6 comments

I'm feeling pretty lousy today. Yesterday I went from feeling incredibly proud of myself for eating a completely Core lunch at a friend's house yesterday (including having fruit salad for dessert) and exercising in her pool, to cringing whe... Read more
Warning: if you're under a size 10, you might not want to read this
Saturday, July 05, 2008      5 comments

This may turn into a rant, and may not be particularly pretty. You've been warned. One of the thing that's always turned me off about WW was the thought of being in a room with all of these skinny women who're trying to lose 10 lbs -- even... Read more
