A Bad Food Day Yesterday & Taking A Break From Running
Tuesday, June 19, 2012      1 comments

I can say that yesterday was the first truly trainwreck food day I have had in the last 6 months. This is the first time I have managed to consume over 3,000 calories. Holy cow. 3,000 calories, nearly TWICE what I usually eat in a day! I had a... Read more
Missing The Spring Folly

Well, it had to happen eventually! I skipped my race last Saturday. Part of it is that I am just burned out; I have done three 5ks in the last few months. Another thing that got to me was that I forgot to get directions to the race location whic... Read more

Monday, May 14, 2012      3 comments

Of course, reviewing my past blogs from 2008 is making me face-palm pretty hard. In October, I weighed in at 197 at my doctor's office. I had a long chat with my doctor about what I should do to become more healthy. She gave me some simple ru... Read more

This past week has been rough for my family, from nearly being taken to court for not paying rent to desperately searching for a student loan. I allowed exercise to fall to the side, which I know is just going to make it worse for me, since... Read more

2 Months Smoke Free
Saturday, July 19, 2008      1 comments

Today marks 2 months without smoking. It feels surreal- I never truly thought this type of thing was even possible. I'm not even TEMPTED anymore, and I can just hope that it continues like this after I get back into school- school is a huge trig... Read more

1. It has been almost 2 months smoke free! I am so excited! The cravings have been no where NEAR as bad as during past attempts to quit smoking, so I think this time it is really going to work for me. WOOHOO! 2. I am totally pumped about th... Read more

So, it is 2 days post surgery, and I am feeling better than expected! A bit of pain and soreness still, and I am not ready to go off of the narcotic pain killers yet.. but still, better than expected. Two days smoke free, and not even the s... Read more
Oral surgery

So, this Monday I have to have all 4 wisdom teeth extracted at 9:30 am. I have no clue what I'm going to be able to eat afterwards, except for ramen noodles (as horribly unhealthy as that is). I find myself wondering: what is something healthy, ... Read more
Trying To Get Back On
Saturday, April 05, 2008      0 comments

Well, after a few weeks of some serious slacking, I have packed on 7 lbs. Took me MONTHS to work that off, and a couple weeks to gain it back. No cool! Anyway, trying to get back on the wagon now. I don't want to be unhealthy anymore. ... Read more

Saturday, February 16, 2008      0 comments

Ok. December 19th I was very happy to see myself down to 150. Now, almost 2 months later, I am still seeing 150 on the blasted scale, and it is driving me NUTS! I work out religiously (training for a 15K in May), and am doing quite well wit... Read more

Ok, I have been trying soooo hard! I've been eating very well, exercising 5 days a week (cardio and strength training)... and I have been at 150 for the last 34 days, excluding 2 days where I had an extra few pounds of bloat from PMS. On top ... Read more
