I'm a night owl by nature and have an awful time getting up in the mornings. Lately I've swung even more nocturnal and going to bed earlier at night only leaves me staring at the ceiling for hours on end. Even days when I am up at 6am, it's hard... Read more

Summer 2012: Trying Again
Sunday, June 24, 2012      0 comments

Today I ran 1.25 miles in 30 minutes. Not as fast as I once was and I probably lost two gallons of sweat, but it felt good in the end. Now it's time to hit the books. ... Read more
C25K - Week 1, Day 1
Monday, January 16, 2012      2 comments

Today I kicked off my C25K program. I'm doing it on the elliptical because I have one in my house and it feels like -4 out in Boston. In the 25 minutes I only managed to go 1.25 miles. While I guess this works as a jumping-off point, it's a lit... Read more

Sunday, October 02, 2011      0 comments

I love my job but last week it just about ate me alive and this coming week will only be more intense. On Friday we had both month end and the end of 3Q11. I do a lot of monthly reporting and work with data that populates the business day after ... Read more

Goal: I am going to weigh 225 or less by March 12th. Update: I lost 1.8 pounds this week! Maybe it was constantly digging my way out of my house or staying within my calorie range, but it seems that I am off the plateau!!! Now I've just g... Read more
A mish-mash morning
Monday, January 31, 2011      1 comments

This morning I was part student, part woodsman, and part auto mechanic. Obviously, this is not a normal combo for a city girl, but here I am anyway. I got up and started studying my tail off for class tonight. We had 1.5 cords of wood delivered ... Read more

The articles say that writing goals down helps you keep them, so here goes: I am going to weigh 225 or less by March 12th. That gives me six weeks to lose 12.6 pounds and reach what I've been aiming for as a short-term goal (although i... Read more

I totally blew my diet out of the water. Today I started out alright with mini pizzas made on light whole wheat sandwich rounds, but I had a soda with it. Then I ate a small bowl of BBQ chips.... and then a pack of Skittles! At dinner the wheels... Read more
Help! I'm considering a 5k
Wednesday, January 19, 2011      6 comments

I am considering registering for a 5k in mid-late March, but have never run one before. Running was always a "necessary evil" involved with training for another sport in high school. But it seems like everyone I know who starts running 5ks LOVES... Read more
