Doctor's Office Scale
Thursday, July 19, 2012      3 comments

Does anyone know if the doctor's office adjusts their scale to account for clothes? Because I weighed 218.2 this morning, no clothes, no breakfast, no water. Then I went to the doctor and stepped on the scale, fully clothed in a dress,... Read more

Wednesday, July 18, 2012      1 comments

Ugh. One of my roommates (the only one who cooks) is an absolutely TERRIBLE cook. I mean, BAD. Everything I've ever eaten that he's cooked (actually, except one thing that he deep fried. Yes, he has a countertop fryer) has either tasted like car... Read more
You know...Lunch

I was just thinking that I really want to go out to lunch today. I just really want to get out of the office. So I'm trying to decide where I could go to still get something healthy. And I really can't think of anywhere other than Subway (and it... Read more

Just an FYI

Hey, this may be basic info, but I traind for and ran a marathon 4 years ago and never heard of it. Before I go out for a run of really any length, I put about a half a teaspoon of vaseline on the bottom of my feet and toes (I don't measure it, ... Read more
Goal for Today
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      2 comments

I can feel my energy and motivation fluctuating today. One minute I'm stoked to run, the next I'm grimly determined, the next I'm thinking beer at home on the couch with a fluffy blanket is all I need and I can't even imagine forcing my body to ... Read more
Quick Update
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      3 comments

Just on the boyfriend situation, I did end up going to see him and it was exactly the right thing to do. He was feeling like he was too old, plus he did not enjoy going to the bar with my dad and brother, since he had a hard time hearing what wa... Read more
Weekend and today...
Monday, July 16, 2012      1 comments

So this weekend was bad bad bad. First, Saturday we had to get up fairly early to get to Sacramento, so I had one egg over hard, which wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, and two pancakes. Not too bad. Then we got to Sacramento for my under ... Read more

Well, I guess it's always good to have a reminder that nobody's perfect. This week, particularly yesterday and today have done that for me in spades! Today I feel gross. Bloated, my stomach hurts, not at all good. Yesterday I ate: McDonald'... Read more

Gross! (Seriously, heed my warning!)
Wednesday, July 11, 2012      5 comments

In 12 hours I drank 8 cups of spinach as part of two separate green monster smoothies (one after my 4 miles last night, one for breakfast this morning). Just now, my poop had a definite green tinge to it. That's okay though, because I feel... Read more

I've been motivated by my spark friends to finally FINALLY join a gym. I moved to the area in January and intended to join a gym, toured one and didn't like it at all, did a lot of internet searching and pretty much settled on one, but the cost ... Read more

Monday, July 09, 2012      2 comments

I have a coworker that I really like, she's just great. We're not as good of friends as I would hope for, but considering she has a family and a baby, I think we get along great. Well, she was out last week. And I took a bunch of her calls ... Read more
