The necessity of routines

Wednesday, January 12, 2011      1 comments

I guess you can say I've fallen off the wagon just a bit. Ever since moving back to San Francisco from Los Angeles and moving back in with some family I've been having trouble adjusting. As I'm still sorta unemployed/underemployed I have h... Read more

It's like starting all over again.

Saturday, October 23, 2010      0 comments

I'm still without a routine and it's throwing off the way I eat. When I was working it was much, much easier to plan my meals and stick with it. I'm finding myself not using my measuring cups and scale as much as I was before. So I need to get b... Read more

Taking time for me

Thursday, October 14, 2010      1 comments

So my contract at my last job ended 3 weeks ago today. I was completely upset that I had to leave because it was a job and company I loved and I know if they could have kept me they would have. Since then I have moved back home and I'm taking th... Read more

Cha-cha-cha-changes. . .

Tuesday, September 21, 2010      0 comments

So this week begins my last week at work. It was an internship that turned into an additional 3 month contract position. And I have loved every minute of it. The only downside is that without a job scheduled for me to begin like next week, I'm g... Read more

I told myself that I really did want to blog about my journey through the C25K. And then life happened (well, life, vacation and a big deinstallation at work). So it didn't really happen as much as I wanted. But that's ok! I'm ready to dust off ... Read more

W3D3 and wine tasting

Sunday, August 08, 2010      0 comments

I finished Week 3 of the C25K last Friday (didn't get a change to write). It felt really great and I'm really excited to start week 4 tomorrow. I'm a bit apprehensive about actually running the longer amounts but I'm all done for it. Yester... Read more

W3D2 and down with H8

Thursday, August 05, 2010      0 comments

Yesterday I completed day 2 of week 3 of the C25K. I was definitely feeling tired at the end of the 25 minutes and when I went to bed. I generally try and make sure I do my elliptical cardio also on the days I run but I tend to do it before I ru... Read more

Today was the first day of my C25K challenge for myself. I skipped the first two weeks because I've been doing running intervals for about the last three weeks before I heard about the program. Week 3 is definitely more hard core than the interv... Read more

Changes that aren't always visable

Friday, July 30, 2010      2 comments

It's only been within the last month or so that I have really felt the difference in the way I have been eating and purchasing food at the market. That being said, I had 2 tacos for lunch today at work as a Friday treat. They were rather light w... Read more

Hitting a goal without planning too

Tuesday, July 27, 2010      1 comments

For the past few weeks I've felt like my body was beginning to hit a plateau with my exercise regime (which basically consists of cardio - I'll eventually put weight training back in). So I began toying with the idea of running. I have to state:... Read more

A riff on a Giasa de Laurentiis recipe

Monday, July 26, 2010      1 comments

Last week at work the cafe made a special menu for staff who wanted to view a Giada de Laurentiis episode that was taped on site a few weeks earlier. I passed on the event but was very intrigued by the recipe. (

Being the dreaded calorie counter of the group

Tuesday, July 20, 2010      0 comments

Living in Los Angeles I definitely feel a bit more self conscious than I use to feel about admitting that I count calories. I feel there is still a stigma around the term "calorie counter" that people view as less than desirable. It can be my ow... Read more

The Truth About Pasta . .

Monday, July 05, 2010      6 comments

Brown rice pasta that is. I have to admit, pasta is my go to food. Being Italian, pasta and rice was the staple of childhood (that and Friday nutella sandwiches for school). Since I've been aiming to eat better I've actually been eating muc... Read more

Having fun (without going crazy)

Monday, June 14, 2010      2 comments

For at least 50% of the last 8 or so weekends I have either been traveling or have had plans to require eating out. And I really do love eating out especially at restuarants with cuisines I don't cook. It hasn't affected my goals to horribly bec... Read more

Learning from (minor) injuries

Thursday, May 13, 2010      0 comments

About 2 weeks ago I ended up slipping at work and coming down really hard on my knees. I ended up missing the gym for a good 5 days because 1) I hurt and 2) I didn't want to aggravate my knees anymore than falling on them did. Since then my knee... Read more
