Goals for another year.
Wednesday, December 31, 2008      1 comments

I don't like New Year's. It's a lame reason for a party. Or a stupid excuse to be nostalgic and lament how everything wonderful and good is ending. Or an idealistic opportunity to pretend that everything is going to change because of a one integ... Read more
Holidays prove tougher than I'd thought.

Okay, confession: I haven't been active. On the site or in my day-to-day life. I don't really know I fell out of the habit, though I'm pretty sure that the funky working hours that come with being publications adviser don't help. By the tim... Read more
Restaurants sorta suck.
Thursday, August 07, 2008      5 comments

I have committed to eating both lunch AND dinner out with friends today. I AM TERRIFIED OF RESTAURANTS these days. Especially in these situations because I know I won't have any control over where we go for dinner. My willpower comes under heavy... Read more
Today was a GREAT day!

This morning I woke up at 6:15 am. I got dressed and met my friend (the girl who served as my initial motivation) to walk. The air was really muggy so we only made 10 minutes, but every bit counts... and it got me up-and-at-'em. Then we had... Read more
The boy is onboard!
Monday, August 04, 2008      3 comments

FINALLY! My boyfriend is working out! I'm SO excited. He's away in West Virginia, as you probably know since I whine about it frequently. He's eating at least two meals a day at restaurants. As a result, he's gained a bit of weight. Plus, h... Read more
Ah, I remember!

The happy vibes have returned. I'd let myself forget how great it feels to exercise and eat right. Not only is my body happy, but I feel good knowing I CAN make disciplined choices. I worried I wouldn't be able to do it again... But I am! T... Read more
This will bore you. Seriously... It's really just for me.

I head home Sunday. It's three weeks until my boyfriend comes home again... for a weekend. Three weeks after that is his birthday party. I'd like to be back to what I was by then. It might be feasible. I won't really know 'til I can hit a scale.... Read more
Intimidated and a bit insecure.
Wednesday, July 23, 2008      4 comments

I was so active and so disciplined. Then, my boyfriend's company moved him from Texas to Pennsylvania. I started out strong-- I cooked healthy meals for my girlfriends, I re-decorated my bathroom and I kept working out. But after ... Read more
The plan.
Sunday, June 01, 2008      2 comments

The plan, as Megan and I have devised it, is as follows: Stay in calorie allowance everyday (started off right by grocery shopping for fruits and veggies today) 30 mins of cardio five times a week (minimum) -- if weight doesn't come of... Read more
Starting over.
Tuesday, May 27, 2008      3 comments

Okay, I need to put this in writing-- Last week, I gave up. I completely quit trying. Part of the reason I gave up actually has to do with my success. My clothes fit again and I'm not as self-conscious. That makes it easier to justify ... Read more
Positivisms to counter-act the last blog.

Why I am amazing: I am a teacher. I am good at my job. My students love and trust me. They've grown and learned under my tutilage. And will continue to improve my curriculum. Not only that, but I took on teaching a subject I've never taken.... Read more
Um... uh-oh?

I've talked about being insecure before. Well, I don't think I really acknowledged exactly HOW insecure I am. It's pretty bad. My boyfriend's ex is beautiful. Like, REALLY beautiful. Size 0, 5'8", long brown hair with brown eyes, beautiful.... Read more
So glad.
Sunday, May 18, 2008      3 comments

I am SO glad to be home. My boyfriend and I went out of town this weekend with two of our closest friends. It was hell. But I'm home and happy about it. My food log isn't great, but I ate crappy foods and still managed to st... Read more
Variation.
Sunday, May 11, 2008      3 comments

If you had told me six months ago that I'd have any remote interest in gardening, I'd have laughed, chugged my beer and belched, "You don't know me at all." Okay... that's an exaggeration, but I'd have done all but the belching part. Y... Read more
Whiney cry-baby for NO REASON.
Tuesday, May 06, 2008      3 comments

Okay, I owe an apology for being a whiney cry-baby. I got all bent out of shape and teary-eyed because my scale sucks. I did my official weigh-in for our school competition today-- 134.4. That's a LOSS. Despite my over-eating Saturday. ... Read more
