It's been a while... I knew this would happen. As a teacher, and someone who really thrives on built-in routines, summer is a really difficult time. You would think that having entire days with nothing on the schedule, and all this beautiful wea... Read more
I've Been Bad

I feel like I've been in this rut of inconsistency. On some deeper level, I think I'm embarrassed and ashamed of myself for continuing to say, oh today I"m getting back on track.. and for that day, I am. It's not so much that I'm not ACTUALLY do... Read more
Day One Redux

So... ummmm.. yeah. Stress and crazy work took over these past couple of weeks. A little while back my body was telling me to take a break. Now, deeeeeep in the pit of my soul, I know that *I* just wanted a break. And, I took one. But that break... Read more

I just learned about the consequences of falling for the new "healthy" choice at chain restaurants. We had been working hard all morning--I went for my run at the gym, which felt really good, only to come home and continue working on building ou... Read more

Anyone just have a super disappointing day? Well, recently, I have applied for three different programs, each at sort of different tiers of importance. One is a teacher training program--I would run workshops for teachers new to the Everyday Mat... Read more
Tired Body Makes for a Split Personality

So, after a short week of going a little bit, not a lot, lighter... I pushed a little bit harder. I did a short, but high intensity circuit training for the first time since I started up my cardio. Actually, it's the first time I did any real ... Read more
I've Hit That Point

Ok, so any other time that I have tried to lose weight or take control, it started very similarly to this time. I was on break from work (teaching), got bored and tired of eating crappy food, so I had that innate motivation to get to the gym and... Read more

So, if you stop by my blog at all--I say that like anyone would--you might know that I was super down on myself and my body earlier this week. Well, on Tuesday, I did a faux weigh-in.. it was fake because it was neither on my regular weigh-in da... Read more
Feeling Bloated and Fat... Moop.
Tuesday, April 27, 2010      2 comments

Just feeling.. not great. My energy is low.. even though I've kept up a little bit better this week with my work-outs. Made it to the gym to run on the rainy days. Though nothing changes in how it fits, I just feel that extra double-chin hanging... Read more
This Week, It's ON!
Sunday, April 25, 2010      1 comments

Last week sort of felt like a failure to me... I'm feeling a little more bloated, I got a little bit relaxed with the logging and I certainly did not work to my highest potential with my fitness--I did my run/walks and one day of an easy 30 minu... Read more
Icky Weather Makes for Icky Feeling

Sometimes.. when it's gross outside, I succumb to feeling icky myself. I'm trying to stay active today and switched my run/walk to tomorrow... if it's still gross then, I'll make sure to go to the gym to do it.. last resort. Meanwhile, I did ... Read more
Confused by Varied Weigh-ins
Thursday, April 22, 2010      3 comments

So, having been slight discouraged by a lack of weight loss over the past two weeks (I've really stayed positive overall trying to think about how I feel inside, how my clothes fit and the fact that I didn't actually gain), I decided to try an a... Read more
What a week.. and it's only Wednesday!
Wednesday, April 21, 2010      1 comments

This week has been rough... career-wise, which has had an impact on my fitness regimen. This frustrates me because I feel like a "coulda" person right now. I "coulda" not put off my walking days... I "coulda" found time to log my food yesterday.... Read more
Every Time is a Little Bit Better... Just a Little
Saturday, April 17, 2010      4 comments

I think I've spoken to this point a couple of times in my blogs already, but I am really so surprised at how great running outside is. Maybe I shouldn't really be all that surprised because, of course, it's beautiful scenery, people having fun, ... Read more
A Little Discouraged, but Moving Forward!
Thursday, April 15, 2010      5 comments

This morning was my second weigh-in. After an amazing first week weigh-in with a loss of 6lbs, I knew I couldn't match that kind of loss this week. So, I wasn't anticipating anything drastic. That said, I was hoping it'd be something worth talki... Read more
