Crock Pot Freezer Meals
I saw a post about crockpot freezer meals on FB a while ago. This was huge news to me. I didn't know you could throw a bunch of ingredients in a bag, freeze them (including raw meat) and just thaw and dump them in your crockpot when you're rea... Read more

Loss of Fitness After Time Off
Emotionally and physically, 2014 has been a rough year. So, I spent a lot of time using this as an excuse to eat without logging. (Which means, turning a blind eye to the amount and quality of the calories I was consuming from November throug... Read more
Sub-Freezing Half Marathon & Comfort Food
I could focus on all of the weight that I've gained and kept since Thanksgiving, but I think I'll look at recent positives instead.
Manhattan Half - Recap:
This weekend I ran the Fred Lebow Manhattan Half Marathon in Central Park. My hus... Read more
So, I ran yesterday...
... I ran 5 miles at the park yesterday. It's amazing how freeing and easy a nice 5 mile run can be, when its not part of a larger training program. I felt like I could do two more laps, but it was really, really nice knowing that I didn't nee... Read more
Logging for Realz
As of tonight, we are back to hard core logging - not just logging estimates of what we ate, but carefully planning a day in advance, and weighing everything down to the lettuce on our sandwiches. (Though, we might ditch this *one* tiny item, b... Read more

I didn't get a big workout in today, but I did work out a little - so, I'm declaring a victory in weight training, and a draw for cardio today.

Life Between Marathons
I ran my first NYC marathon on 3 November, and I'm already signed up for my 6th NJ marathon at the end of April. That leaves less than 4 weeks until I start my next 20 week marathon training program. My goal is to make the most of this time.

2013 NYC Marathon
Starting with the positive - I ran the NYC marathon last week, and it was a really great experience - much more fun than I imagined it would be. It was worth the 2 year wait. The crowd support was amazing.
My time was ok. I can't really ... Read more
I'll admit it - I am a bad blogger.
Come to think of it, I'm not such a good food or exercise logger either..... maybe this is why I haven't been blogging. I find my regression in healthy activities embarrassing.
I am tracking some food ... Read more
Cooking, Logging, Running
I think I'm finally getting back in a healthy groove. I've been doing a lot of cooking, logging & running recently - and it think I'm starting to see some results. (It's always so hard for me to continue in healthy habits if I don't feel like ... Read more
Happy New Year!
Today, I keep thinking, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life."
I have a ton of holiday health sins to atone for - starting.... now.... Read more
Ups and Downs
On the upside, my 5K time is down.
On the downside, my weight is up.
Focusing on the positive, I've PR'ed my last 3 5K races, and in one of them, I was dressed as a hot dog. (I know, right?) On Saturday, I broke 28 minutes, ... Read more
Thanksgiving - lost the battle but not the war
So..... it's been unbelievably long since I've blogged here. I've been doing a decent job of tracking calories & semi decent with exercise - but I just haven't been blogging. A whole heck of a lot has gone on since my last post... but starting... Read more
I can't seem to get excited about anything. I find my diet frustrating, my marathon training time consuming, my commute oppressive, my job uninspiring, ..... and I suffer from an overall lack of sleep and time in the day, .... and I feel like I... Read more
