I'm writing here just from the desire to record and reflect on today. I often set goals that are too rigid... too much to ask of myself based on where I stand. So, no goals. No expectations. Just reflecting on today.
Sunday, I joined the gy... Read more
Food Allergies, Weight Gain, Fallback
I have had weight issues for several years. When I moved back home from Minnesota, I was depressed and lost weight from not eating nutritiously. While I was single and coping, I slowly got healthier and began running to relieve anxiety and stres... Read more
I have been in MN for almost 1 year!
It is hard to believe how much time has passed since I wrote my last blog entry.
Before the move, my greatest concern was my job. Well, I stumbled upon the Americorps website and have been working as a Literacy Tutor in a Title I school sin... Read more
So instead of doing my DVD workout, we are going bouldering at Climb Nashville. I am excited. I wish I was a more confident belayer so we could do some wall climbs, but I am still pretty bad at that. But bouldering is a good strength workout, ta... Read more
Saturday morning I had to trudge my way through the snow to work. That meant waking up an hour earlier than usual just to get there on time. So I did, but I skipped breakfast. I cannot be at work and be hungry. It drives me to the brink of insa... Read more
I am a grazer.
So I have realized my eating style: Grazer.
As soon as I wake up, I usually eat something light, 200-300 calories before a workout. If I am not hungry, I go straight into my workout. Then, I drink a lot of fluids until I can prepare my lunc... Read more
Things given up for fitness
Today I went to Hastings to sell some CDs so that I'd have cash for gas and my $2 cycling class! It's so close to payday, but far enough away that I had to do it. I have itunes, though, so I was able to import the CDs to my itunes library before... Read more
I am back to sparkpeople.
Well, the first go around at sparkpeople was not very successful. I am also a bit bummed that this has been a three year battle; I had forgotten how long I had been trying to lose weight. But I did end up going from 152 to 132. And then I gained... Read more
Well, I know my number one weakness. Stress. Not just school stress, because I can handle that. And work stress. I can handle that one, too. It's school stress, work stress, and a huge argument with the boyfriend that knocked me over today. All ... Read more
What's been going on...
Ahhhhh I can't wait for Christmas! This was my lil Charlie Brown christmas tree last year... I'm gonna get it out again soon.
So I've noticed two things changing about my eating habits. I've noticed that my stomach has shrinked, if only a t... Read more
This week so far
UGH---I had a stomach virus. Despite exercise and better eating, I can't help but feel like the virus is the only reason I lost two pounds. I guess I'll be able to tell if it stays off.
I also weighed myself on a newer scale and it read ov... Read more
I sweated today!!!
At 11, my friend Courntey and I went to the fairgrounds and walked/jogged. I hurt!! FEEL THE BURN, right??? Well, I sure do. I was proud of myself, but I still get embarrased over how insanely out of shape I am. Afterwards, I took some pictures ... Read more
Today was honest and good
Today I recorded practically everything I ate except for 3 SMALL general tso's chicken bites because I don't know exactly how that ranks against a serving size... and I refuse to believe it's 233 calories for THREE small chicken lumps as I orgin... Read more
Did well today!
I started out with some popcorn for breakfast. I've realized that all my breakfast foods are either 1) an empty fill; I'm hungry two hours later or 2) loaded with calories. So I opted for some uber healthy popcorn. You can get a 4 pack at Kroger... Read more
1) I got on the scale yesterday and hadn't even lost a pound. My heart dropped away from the place it was in. I am now eating chocolate out of the BEEhind.
2)Halloween. Candy. Everywhere. Mostly, in my stomach. A lot of it.
3) I am sur... Read more
