Just when you think the party starting. After three years. Lots of amazingly good times. Confusing at times, emotionally destructive at others, and breathtakingly beautiful at others still. The sig-o and I got together a year out ... Read more
Fighting Regret
Thursday, October 20, 2011      3 comments

We've all done it. Relapse. Un-learning the good things we've come to believe in almost no time at all. Then, coming to the conclusion that now is now, and we begin retraining ourselves. Today, I fought with myself over something s... Read more

Howdy! I've been a bit AWOL for the last month and a half or so. I was offered a short term position as a production coordinator for a film studio, and couldn't really say no! The hours were long, the job was fun, but it severely cut into m... Read more

Goals
Wednesday, April 06, 2011      3 comments

I've had a whiteboard on my desk for quite some time now, with every major (and some minor!) goals spelled out. I've achieved quite a few, and those have a bright green date next to them to remind me of when I made it. Every 10lbs is a rewa... Read more

Today, while out walking with my younger, attractive (read: tall, skinny, pretty, quirky and funny too!) friend: me: "J, Are you as happy as you could possibly be, completely lucky in love- finding the man of your dreams who has stuck with ... Read more
Day.. something. I'm REALLY good at keeping track, yes?
Wednesday, March 30, 2011      2 comments

The good news is, I've evened myself out. I've found my rhythm! I'm back at work, back at the gym, and back to the weight I was when I *first* got back to SF on March 3rd. It took me a good solid 2 weeks of work, but I dropped the extra 4lbs I g... Read more
Day 8 & 9 - Habits
Wednesday, March 23, 2011      4 comments

One good point: I made it to the gym both days, and I'm working hard to extend my current cardio regime. Added another 5 minutes per session this week. In two weeks, I'll add another 5. My problem seems to be food. I love going to the gym, ... Read more

Days 5 and 6 were spot on! Weight lifting on friday, and saturday.. well, I went for a short wlak, and ate right. Day 7 started off badly. Forgot breakfast, had a huge slice of pizza for lunch, snacked on m&m's and skittles, had 2 extra coffee... Read more

Another positive day. Spent the morning (and afternoon into the evening) with friends. Knowing I'd be meeting a friend for coffee, I made a simple breakfast of oatmeal with a banana and an orange. I met up with a friend at 10, had a love... Read more
Day 3- Habit Forming- Kickin' and takin'
Wednesday, March 16, 2011      4 comments

Today was juuust about right. I kept within my calories range, although I was a bit low on protein. I did my weights- and cardio- and feel like a thousand very heavy and sweaty dollars. Things I can do better on: Drink water more f... Read more
Day 2 - Habit Forming
Tuesday, March 15, 2011      2 comments

Well, I weighed myself this morning. 190. Ouch. All the more reason that kick-starting myself has to happen now. I started today with a lovely bowl of steel cut organic oatmeal from whole foods (1/4c dry), a cup of *ah-mazing* esp... Read more
Day 1- Habit Forming
Monday, March 14, 2011      0 comments

I've been gone a long time from the world of structured and disciplined exercise. Sure, there were days and spurts of swimming and weight lifting, and hiking- but only randomly. I've missed it, dammit! So, to get the ball rolling (and... Read more

Yup. That's me. With 40+lbs on my back, sunburned and soaked wearing shorts as the fog turns to rain. This was the second to last day of an 11 day epic journey through the "w... Read more
Monthly check-in - Yay!
Monday, November 15, 2010      4 comments

This last month (ok, month and a half) has been wrought with a lot of up and downs. The days are speeding by and yet crawling. I normally post pictures around the 1st- but was feeling so blah, it didn't happen. I'll post another blog with pho... Read more
