maybe some roughness is necessary
It's the middle of summer, and in the evenings to unwind it's fun to watch some TV. Since it's reruns on almost every channel (and our satellite provider is having a much-publicized dispute that prevents Comedy Central from playing), I have som... Read more
I'm still moving, and still here
Time flies, yes it does :)
I'm on SP daily, or very nearly daily, logging exercise and food and clicking around to earn some points and trying to read what y'all are up to.
My world is in flux, as ever, and this doesn't seem like the ... Read more
Sometimes, I weigh myself, and if I've gained a pound or so I don't log it here, because I think "Oh, I'll just lose it next week." Sometimes it happens, more often lately it's just wishful thinking.
But I finally realized that hey, no, I'... Read more
Ready for spring
I'm not going to deny, this has been a really crappy time for me. The past year or so. I wouldn't wish this on anyone.
However, it's life, it happens, things keep going.
I went for a run this morning and thought I'd take a picture af... Read more
I missed a goal
And yeah, I'm thinking of the recent Glee episode (I didn't watch but saw enough commercials) called I Kissed a Girl as I write the title. The actual working title for this post for the last couple weeks, in my mind, was "Failures, Big and Smal... Read more
a year and a half
I've been on Spark People for eighteen months now (maybe not precisely that, but really close).
I have been wanting to write something to celebrate, or at least recognize, this milestone. I keep coming up short.
Some fabulous things h... Read more
I would walk 500 more
500 miles on foot! I did it.
OK, it has taken a year and a half, but that's partially because I do things the hard way - barefoot.
I hope I can finish the next 500 miles more quickly.... Read more
I'm still here
I realize I haven't posted a blog entry in a while, but I'm still on SP daily and I'm still tracking my fitness and nutrition goals.
I admit I am not quite as careful with my eating right now, which is probably why I'm on a plateau weight-w... Read more
believing in myself
Well, today has been a turd from pretty early on.
It started out FANTASTIC, I mean definitely in the running for Best Monday Evar, and then things started rolling downhill by lunchtime and pretty much hit rock bottom by 6 PM.
No, the d... Read more
keepin on (and a picture)
It's nearly the end of August. This hasn't been the most awesome week, nutrition-wise, but in the grand scheme of things (for instance I'm not staring down a hurricane, as millions are) it isn't so bad.
My car spent two weeks in the shop... Read more
The office I work in has few options for eating lunch - you can bring something from home, or you can visit a vending machine and have chips or crackers. Most of us either bring something or just go out to eat.
I spent the morning running ... Read more
It seems that my weight loss has finally reached the point where co-workers feel like they need to comment about it. The past month or so I have received many compliments.
I am so NOT complaining!
Everyone is so nice, and some are hes... Read more
not easy being cheesy
I don't really have anything to write about; it has been an interesting week, but I took a picture and thought I would share it with y'all. Nothing special...
219 pounds this morning, it's been kinda flat for a couple weeks, I don't know i... Read more
another week down
I've had a pretty good week, over 15 miles running this week, eating pretty well, etc. The scale says I've lost a half pound, so maybe I should eat a little better, right?
I'm sick of the bathroom mirror, so here's... Read more
a milestone for me
As of this morning, according to the handy calculator that SP has someplace, I am no longer obese.
That's right, I have lost enough weight that I am (just barely) now in the 'overweight' category. When I started I was off the chart, beyond... Read more
