Quick Vent - Scale vs. Measurements
Friday, July 03, 2015      2 comments

I have a spreadsheet drawn up with projections of 2 pounds per week until October, when I will be starting skiing as a new hobby. (Yes, I'm type A.) I began this process on May 5th, and I had thought that I'd be able to drop about 8 pounds per m... Read more
Spreadsheets to the Rescue
Tuesday, May 05, 2015      3 comments

So, after a couple of weeks "on" - I feel back off until today. I got to thinking: even if I have 40+ pounds to lose, all it will take is long term goal planning and realistic expectations. I'm awesome at planning, so I looked around for a 12-we... Read more
Starting again, yet again

I'm bigger than I've ever been without being pregnant. It's been out of control emotional eating and overindulgence in wine, paired with an extended stay with family that has lead to a nearly sedentary lifestyle for several months. I accept that... Read more
Small Habits
Thursday, February 16, 2012      6 comments

I decided that I needed to really go back to square one on this, instead of expecting perfection out of myself when I am so deeply out of the habits. Once I embraced that idea, I felt a lot better. This week, I have been active in some way every... Read more
Getting better
Sunday, February 12, 2012      3 comments

I'm definitely starting over with this healthy habits thing. Rather than whining over how absurd I am for letting myself get out of it, I'm sucking it up and making a change. I spent a few hours last night planning my week's food and fitness, an... Read more

I'm not sure if anyone even reads this, but I need...something. I'm not sure if support will do it, motivation, maybe some goals..? I'm having a hard time. Let's just start with a quick update. I had my second child at the end of August 201... Read more
Feeling Fit and Healthy

I've had a fantastic week, full of exercising and delicious, nutritious food. Yesterday, I ran my C25K - week 3, day 3, with sore muscles from the day before and still managed to handle it. Today I am pretty achy all over, so I am planning to go... Read more
I love new recipes

I never want to make the same dishes when I cook. I always want to try new things. I'm going grocery shopping today, and I plan on getting the ingredients for a pumpkin smoothie, baked apple french toast, and turkey pepper roll-ups. I am also ha... Read more
Mixing it up
Wednesday, September 29, 2010      3 comments

I can't get the nagging out of my head about not losing weight. I was advised to mix up my routine, and I'm not sure how to really do this. First of all, I haven't HAD a routine for long, so it seems incredible that I already need to change it. ... Read more

I've weighed 130 for a very long time. It's not a bad weight, but I just wish it was less. I was stuck at 140 for several weeks, maybe even months, but I broke through that when I attempted to be a Vegan for a couple of weeks. It's hard to "lose... Read more

For 2 weeks now, I've been trying to remember "this song I like," with increasing frustration. Couldn't find it on iTunes, nor on a TV show archive that I knew had played it, nor could I remember how it went. When I was standing in line at Disne... Read more
Vegetable Snacks?
Friday, September 24, 2010      6 comments

I am really not a vegetable fan. :( I could eat fruit all day, but I struggle with veggies because they taste SO overwhelmingly bitter to me. I get them in with green smoothies, salads (with the air of speed eating and forcing them down), etc. b... Read more

For some reason, I have been eating SO MUCH today! I'm ashamed to admit that we've been out of produce for a couple of days and I haven't gone to buy more. But my body is craving carbs pretty hardcore - breads, tortillas, etc. and I have been li... Read more
Week 3, Day 1 of C25K
Wednesday, September 22, 2010      2 comments

Yesterday I got back on the treadmill for the first time since I was sick all last week. I got a burst of energy and just went for it. I opened my C25K app on my iPod Touch and hit start without paying much attention. After warm-up and about 5-6... Read more
Had a tough week
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      1 comments

I'm only just now feeling back to normal after a week of one miserable ailment after another. I'm still not quite 100% and I have no desire to exercise as of yet. I'm eating healthy today, and have been carrying my baby around a lot trying to ge... Read more
