I totally did not realize that it's been a good two weeks since I posted! Brief recap: Disneyland was fun, but my plane and thus shuttle were so delayed that I did not make dinner. So that big thing that I was looking forward to? Just gone.... Read more

Alright, I have a quite hellish day at work and then I'm going to have to (possibly literally) RUN about a half mile in the rain on 2 inch heels to make my flight to Disneyland, THEN by the time I get there? I'm going to be too late for dinner. ... Read more

Ugh, I think I overate lunch. Bowl of soup, apple, string cheese = hurting belly! Ahh well, pretty healthy! A few posts back I mentioned this "Maintain Don't Gain" Holiday challenge I'm doing in my workplace. I have a perfect score so far, ... Read more

So my #1 woo hoo! is that despite family lunch with lots of beer and wine AND family wine tasting followed by dinner at a brew pub (two different days) I abstained from any and all alcohol. I simply explained that I'm in a contest to win an ipad... Read more

I'm going to list the good things and hopefully take my mind off the bad thing. I went to the gym last night even though I didn't want to and it was late. I walked on the treadmill for a while at 3.5 and 1 elevation. Then I got competitive ... Read more

I'm a little down this evening. I know I should go exercise but it's already 6:30 and dark as heck outside and I'm still at work (the work part is actually good, I have the gym just 1.2 miles away!) and I'm hungry because I'm finally finally fin... Read more

Short one today: They say it's "obsessing" to exercise 5x per week and eat right. Why isn't it obsessing to watching tv for hours and hours per week and eat poorly? When I saw this it was attached to a nice picture and was very inspiri... Read more

Monday, November 05, 2012      5 comments

Okay, so I didn't meet most of my goals for October. I was a lot busier and I finally, after a lot of frustration and anger, realized that I needed to prioritize my work and my relationship for a little while. With that said, both work and the ... Read more

Last night I ran to the gym to go to the cardio-weights class. For some reason I remembered it being just under a mile to get to the gym, it's actually more like 1.25 miles. Oops. So I started running faster and faster as I realized I was going ... Read more

I get it I get it I get it. Food. Planning. I'm over my calorie range almost every day. It's pathetic. BUT I figured out that the one day that I was running around and NOT at my desk all day (with refrigerator and treats 10 s... Read more

The problem is wanting to. I want to be thinner. But I also want to eat that cookie! Anyway, the 10k went GREAT. 1:02:14! It was a nice race and on the greenbelt in Davis, where I trained for my marathon, it was like coming home! (Sadly, fo... Read more

Well then. This week has been and will continue to be a challenge. Sunday night I didn't get home until about 11. I went pretty straight to bed, but I wasn't able to get up at 4:45 to go workout like I should have. I know what went wrong, o... Read more
