Well, shoot
Tuesday, June 19, 2012      2 comments

I knew I'd been letting things slide and yesterday was particularly bad because it was stressful, I didn't calculate my lunch calories ahead of time and ended up eating more than double my normal amount, and then dug into the peanut m&ms (I don'... Read more
Family Stress
Monday, June 18, 2012      0 comments

So I know this is silly to be upset about but I AM. A little backstory: So the boyfriend and his family were all on that cruise to Alaska that I didn't get to go on, right? I've mentioned this before. All told, 9 of them got to go and... Read more
Work

ARGH! I waited to talk to my boss until 7pm last night. Literally sitting on my hands for about 2 hours because, as I told her, I couldn't finish two projects until I spoke with her. At 3 she said she should be able to talk to me in an hour. I t... Read more
Update on Gluten and Weekend
Monday, June 04, 2012      0 comments

Alright, so I gave up gluten (almost, I did falter once!) for a week and felt no differences other than irritation at those companies who add gluten to otherwise naturally gluten-free foods. So I started relaxing the strictures, particularly wit... Read more
Mornings
Thursday, May 31, 2012      2 comments

I am not a morning person. I have dry eyes so the first thing I have to do when I wake up is put eye drops in. I can't see without them. Then I usually have some blurry vision and will put more eye drops in as I get ready for work. The next thin... Read more
221.8, 221.8, 221.8, 221.8!!!!!
Wednesday, May 30, 2012      5 comments

I've been hovering here for WEEKS! This is the week to break through the plateau, I am DETERMINED. (Also, running a 10k this weekend, that should do it if nothing else!) I had such a brief flirtation with 220, my inaccurate scale (usually off b... Read more
Tonight's run
Wednesday, May 30, 2012      3 comments

Just got back from an uber-not-fun 5 mile run. I had to talk myself into it in stages. First, at the office: "Maybe I'll just go home and get changed there and that way I can stop at the store on the way and (deeeeeep down) maybe I just ... Read more
Wheat

So I got my blood test results back and my fasting glucose is high. Too high. Not yet diabetes high, but high. There could be a couple reasons for this unrelated to diabetes: 1) My doctor did not tell me how many hours I needed to fast. Th... Read more
Humbling Realizations
Thursday, May 17, 2012      4 comments

I have always been the strongest person I know. Yes, person. Not "girl," person. My DAD would ask me to open pickle jars, and he's a former collegiate football player/rabid exerciser. Still. And I have really taken that for granted, especially ... Read more
Brains...
Wednesday, May 16, 2012      3 comments

...not like a zombie... As I ran last night I was thinking about how to reprogram our brains. I have this thing, I think a lot of overweight people do, about food/drink. I always think it will make me feel better. For instance, yesterday I ... Read more

Panda Express
Friday, May 11, 2012      0 comments

Ahhh, sweet and sour Panda Express. I always think it will be SO GOOD and then I get there and I eat it and I feel SO BAD. I am trying to remind myself of this x1,000 right now because that is what I am craving for lunch like none other. I miss... Read more
In and Out
Tuesday, May 08, 2012      3 comments

That is my motivation lately, in and out, out and in. I am pleased that despite the poor motivation I have not gained a bunch of weight back or anything like that. I was down to about 222.6 and I'm holding steady at 225. However I went to the do... Read more
Rock Climbing!
Monday, April 30, 2012      0 comments

Did 2 hours of rock climbing over the weekend, it was awesome! I was SOsoso very dreading going because I haven't climbed in at least a decade, and that was really just for fun, and I'm about 40 pounds heavier, not to mention ten years older! I ... Read more
