When the Gossip Gets Back To You...

Friday, September 16, 2011

Apparently someone thinks I "sparkle".

And they think it's because I'm having lots of sex.


I chalk it up to a healthy diet and lots of exercise!

(Though I'm not opposed to having lots of sex...)

Worse rumors could be circulating.

    Hey, that kind of gossip is a whole lot better than the negative stuff.

Second Time Sparking - What I've Learned

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

I just realized that- I think- I am five pounds away from where I was when I stopped Sparking in 2010. I primarily stopped Sparking because I went on a seven-week backpacking trip with no way to track fitness (walking HOURS upon HOURS every day... sometimes from one country to another!) or calories (I have no desire whatsoever to know how many calories are in placinta cu branza, thanks!). I should have kept up the good habits when I got back, but I was looking good and feeling invincible. I did look good for about six months or so, but then I went down a rapid slide into letting myself go. This time, I've given myself an initial goal that is five pounds higher (twelve pounds from where I am now), and I'm planning to CONTINUE TRACKING FOOD AND FITNESS in a way that allows me to mostly maintain, but lose those last five pounds over five or six months. I work with kids on goal-setting, and it would be ridiculous if we told them it was fine to get an A+ on your math test once, then slide back into getting Fs all the time. The same needs to go for my health- it's not enough to REACH my goal, I need to MAINTAIN it.


Back to Boot Camp

Monday, September 12, 2011

I left my car outside this afternoon so that no matter what, I'll have to move it. My plan, though, is to move it by driving it to boot camp! I haven't been since early June 2010... more than a year! It's a super-intense ninety-minute circuit training class lead by an instructor who has NO sympathy whatsoever. If I never post again, you'll know I didn't survive!

Then and Now... (WITH PICTURE!)

Saturday, September 10, 2011

In July, I was carrying some fat all over abdominal area. Today, I've just got a little pouch of it right under my belly button. Honestly, I'm not sure which I prefer! The little pouch feel weird... it's so easy to grab!

(I am looking forward to an illustrious career in graphic design.)

    Yes, I think you have a lively and remunerative future ahead of you. I am glad to know that I am not the only person to observe closely the "pouch" of fat.

"Repurposing" Food!

Thursday, September 08, 2011

My meal plan is a bit of a mess. I'd prepped meals for this week and weekend, and now I've been invited out of town AND I will be a guest at a luncheon tomorrow. So, some of my food MIGHT have gone to waste. Instead, I've decided to "repurpose" some of it!

I made a hearty salad with farro, roasted cauliflower, chickpeas, sage, leeks and shallots. I'm not going to be able to eat it this weekend, so I'm going to cook it in some stock and turn it into a soup, which I'll freeze and eat for dinner next week. (Three meals.)

The vegetable soup that I've been eating for dinner will also get frozen and taken to work next week for lunch.

This means I can enjoy my weekend and not worry about cooking until prepping Wednesday's food on Tuesday night! (After my first official yoga class.)
