Peaking (and some Valleys)

Monday, October 26, 2009      1 comments

I have to admit, I haven't been feeling the Spark much, since I last updated. I got sick during the last week of September, and then again weekend before last. I've also had my period TWICE this month, which makes absolutely no sense to me, beca... Read more

It's PT For Me

Friday, September 18, 2009      1 comments

I finally, FINALLY had my knee appointment yesterday, and the news was, fortunately, not terrible. They took x-rays of my knee, asked a bunch of questions, and checked for swelling and tightness. The x-rays looked normal, so that was good, but t... Read more

Making The Cut Wrap-up!

Thursday, September 03, 2009      0 comments

I've been so busy I haven't had a chance to talk about Making The Cut! I completed Day 30 on August 25th, and it felt like SUCH an achievement. I remember looking through the book when I first read through it, and my eyes literally bugged o... Read more

Knees and Fears

Tuesday, August 25, 2009      1 comments

I had a really bad moment over this past weekend. I'd taken Friday off from work to get several errands done, and my mood felt strangely erratic all day... I'd go from feeling mellow, to feeling like crying, and back again. At one point, I was t... Read more

Where to go next

Wednesday, August 19, 2009      0 comments

I'm on Day 24 of Making The Cut, and it's been pretty tough going, off and on. Stress has kicked my butt, so I haven't exactly been on-point with the food plan 100% of the time, but I'm in range most days. Thing is, I find my muscles just gettin... Read more

Oy vey. To say that I had an insane week last week would be a HUGE understatement. It was a week of insane workload at my job, with more than a few last-minute surprises, and that was on top of bumpy waters at home. Good news is, I laid dow... Read more

Like I mentioned the other day, I've been having some rough times. Things are very crowded and stressful at home (in short: too many roommates having too many overnight guests... it's driving me insane!), and I haven't had a lot of luck releasin... Read more

Overdoing it?

Friday, July 31, 2009      0 comments

It's been a hard week. We've had over-100-degree temperatures here, and it's been tough trying to sleep, or do much of anything, really! I'm trying to keep hydrated, but that's hard, too, because I sweat so much! I've been dutifully sloggin... Read more

Restarting At Last!

Sunday, July 26, 2009      1 comments

I just got e-mail notification that I'm FINALLY at the front of the holds queue, and I have a copy of Making The Cut waiting for me at the Central Library! I was bummed that I had to turn it back in before I left for China, so I'm pumped to have... Read more

Food is fun... not "work" ;)

Monday, July 20, 2009      2 comments

My boyfriend asked me the other night why I like to put so much "work" into my food. Well, I was in the middle of making food at the time, so I didn't really answer him adequately. Now that I've actually *thought* about it, though, it basi... Read more

Fighting back

Monday, July 13, 2009      1 comments

Ugh. I've been working my butt off by day, coughing (and thusly not sleeping well) at night, and generally feeling as though my life is not my own. I had two weddings to shoot this past weekend, one of them running almost 9 hours (!), and I coul... Read more

This? BLOWS. I don't know how I did it (well, okay, I probably do), but it looks like I completely negated any advantage I had from the extra training, and also un-did months of weight loss progress in just two weeks, while I was on that trip. ... Read more

Hi from China

Wednesday, July 01, 2009      0 comments

I've been out of touch these past few weeks, but for good reason. I'm in China! We spent a week in Beijing, and just came to Xi'an earlier this morning. I got to train at Shichahai (Beijing Sports University) while we were in Beijing, and it was... Read more

Making The Cut Day 10

Wednesday, June 17, 2009      1 comments

I'm on Day 10 of Making The Cut, which means it's a rest day. Thank jeebus for that, because I went to wushu practice last night and thought I was going to die. XD I was incredibly sore, and then they made us do MORE conditioning at the end of p... Read more

Naturally tasty

Monday, June 15, 2009      1 comments

I get rather frustrated with some of the recipe blogs I'm subscribed to, sometimes, because they're often built on diet principles that are antiquated, or just not universally true. One of the blogs I like, for instance, specializes in low-fat a... Read more
