In the past, I focused on my weight, or my calories, and, judging by the fact that I've lost basically nothing in the last several years, that obviously wasn't right.
This time, it was going to be different. I decided that I was going to f... Read more
A Lost Cause?
I went to Zumba today. I don't normally go, because I don't like it that much, but I heard some reggaeton music at a tapas place I went to this week and it made me kind of want to go.
Everytime I go, it's a bigger mistake than the time bef... Read more
...measly calories OVER today. Broke my streak, which, granted, was only three days (today would have been four), but still...darn!
At least I know I was 16 calories over, because I measured and tracked EVERYTHING today!
On the other ... Read more
The Official Announcement
Well, I'll have to let the other parties involved comment on their own, but I guess it's time I said something.
Yes. It's true. The innuendo, the rumors, all of it.
I have two sisters on SparkPeople with me. Yes, that's right. AMYL... Read more
10K in NYC
Today is like Friday for me, because I don't have to work tomorrow. I am going to New York this weekend to walk the UAE 10K in Central Park this weekend. It benefits the National Kidney Foundation. My husband is going to RUN it, but my sister ... Read more
Not Such a Good Day
First of all, my streaks are both over. It was time. I went over by less than 100 calories, so it's not such a big deal, and I'm okay with it. I am trying to expand my streaks each time, so it's actually kind of a relief to know I don't have ... Read more
Do you know the story of how I found Little Sammy?
I'd never had a dog before, and I never even much cared for them before, but I went through a phase about a year and a half ago, in which, whenever I was feeling low, I would look at pictur... Read more
Am I breaking my streak, or not really?
So, today the Knees challenge was to get 24 points for cardio. 24 points!!! 1 point is 5 minutes, so 24 of them is 120 minutes. I'm not sure this was calculated before the challenge was set, because that's a far cry from doing three arm exerc... Read more

I'm working with streaks right now. I'm on Day 5 of both of my streaks.
The first streak is staying within my calorie range. It's been all right. Today, I thought I went over by 15 calories, but then it turned out that I had had a half s... Read more

Time to Reflect
My Knees Wednesday challenge is to write a blog. So I'm writing a blog.
The questions to answer for the blog were:
How has your year been so far?
Have you made progress in the areas you wanted to address?
To answer those questio... Read more
Happiness Is Closure
I think a recurring theme in my blogs has been how depressed I get on weekends. It happened again today. I have such a routine on weekends that it seems to me that feeling depressed is part of that routine! So I read the paper and clipped som... Read more
Red Dots, Blue Dots
Yesterday, while I was sitting with the little dog, I went through the nutrition reports from December 2008 on. Then, I thought that I could create the grocery lists from weeks that were particularly good, but it turned out I couldn't. Oh, wel... Read more
Home with Little Sammy
I picked Little Sammy up from the hospital this morning. I cried when they brought him to me. I didn't know you could love a dog so much. He did really well during the surgery, and he's surprisingly alert this morning. He keeps wobbling arou... Read more
