Okay. New Plan. Elements: 1. Less ambitious weight loss. All that happens when I go for broke is that I burn out. My current goal is to drop 15 pounds by August first when I go home for my best friend's wedding. It's a loss of... Read more
Sick. Again.
Wednesday, February 04, 2009      1 comments

So, last week was phenomenal, as far as exercise goes, and my eating wasn't too far off from where I wanted it to be. I was happy to finally be getting back into a groove. And then I got sick. For the second time in two months. I'm... Read more

So today, I thought to myself, I thought, "Hey, I'm kind of hungry. What should I have to eat?" So I went over to my fridge and opened the door and saw not one, not two, but FIVE containers of Sabra Hummus with Pine Nuts. It is remarkably... Read more

Well, today is a mix. I succeeded in going to the gym four times last week, which was a great feeling. However, when I went to weigh in today before my workout, I was sad to see that my weight hadn't budged at all. This is added to by the fac... Read more

So, I've decided to give SparkPeople a try. I heard about it through two friends. I'm not sure how many of the features I'll be using. Meal Tracking has always struck me as extremely tedious and I generally fall out of the habit of it quickly... Read more
