I had a really good day at my school's retreat and felt like it was really interesting and engaging. But, I'm frustrated because I don't feel like I overate or anything and I still tracked over 2000 calories! I went for a run this morning ... Read more

Waiting for the Sun to Rise

Monday, August 27, 2012      1 comments

I was planning on running at 5:30 this morning, but it is DARK out then! I didn't realize! I will go at 6 as soon as my fiance gets up. My toes still hurt from hiking, though. This weekend was probably a little too decadent. I made a deli... Read more

My Calves Hurt

Saturday, August 25, 2012      0 comments

Such a fun weekend, but man, do my legs hurt! My fiance and I headed up to Vermont last night for a "daycation" - 24 hours of local fun. My mom had a Groupon for a resort up there that expired before they could use it, so she gave us the value t... Read more

After I changed my attitude about yesterday, it did get a lot better. I had a nice day reading on the porch with some watermelon agua fresca (pureed watermelon, lime juice, sliced jalapenos, over ice with seltzer - 25 calories a drink.) I ate at... Read more

Being Kind to Myself

Thursday, August 23, 2012      0 comments

I woke up feeling out of sorts (leftover from yesterday) and so far today I drank a cup of green tea and watched an episode of Supernatural (and ate an omelet...and a Nestle drumstick. If they're in the house I will eat them, and then I felt bad... Read more

Wedding stress

Thursday, August 23, 2012      1 comments

Yesterday actually ended up being not so successful. I was doing fine until my fiance got home at 5, when we started talking about our wedding guest list. There's this whole problem with inviting cousins vs. not inviting cousins...we don't reall... Read more

Revamping the morning routine

Wednesday, August 22, 2012      1 comments

First, yesterday was a good day. I ate in budget, and my exercise was walking around the mall trying to back to school shop for like 4 hours. None of my pants fit, which is a "yay!" because they're all too big, but I don't have the money right ... Read more

Buckling Down

Okay, back from vacation. It may not have been the most...goal oriented weekend, but it was fun. Eats first - I didn't track them because food at my sister's house is a disaster. I hope she never reads this because she's also hypersensitive... Read more

Busy Day and Pasta Night

Friday, August 17, 2012      0 comments

Side note, I think that posting in the morning is always going to work better for me. I just love the early hours so much better and it's pleasant to sit and reflect on what's going on. Anyways - yesterday was a bit of a bump in terms of my... Read more

Last night's wrap up

Thursday, August 16, 2012      1 comments

I came in 127 calories under last night (makes sense, since I didn't move all day - wasn't that hungry) and I had a .5 cup serving of ice cream (Edy's Triple Peanut Butter Chocolate Sundae...only 100 cals per .5 cup! Science is an amazing thing.... Read more

Under the weather

Wednesday, August 15, 2012      0 comments

I woke up this morning with a UTI :( I feel so yucky. I got my butt to the doctor's this morning (thank goodness that this happened now and not in the middle of finals or something!) and got a prescription for antibiotics, so hopefully I will on... Read more

Day 2 - the house is clean!

Tuesday, August 14, 2012      2 comments

Day 2 progress: Had one cup of decaf and went for a 2.35 mile run this morning, so check and check! No added sugar, either. After the run I mopped the kitchen floor and cleaned most of the rest of the house so it was a pretty productive st... Read more

Day 1 Progress

Monday, August 13, 2012      1 comments

1. Calorie allowance - close enough, check! I ended the day at 1777 - I had a tiny glass of wine that put me a bit over but was totally worth it. 2. Did 20 minutes of pilates and a 2.6 mile walk today. Check! 3. I'm writing here, aren'... Read more

Caffeine and sugar problems

Monday, August 13, 2012      0 comments

Well, so far today I have only had one cup of half caf/half decaf coffee and I had a pretty energetic morning - did my pilates and walked 2.6 miles to and from the library. I crashed around noon, though, and took a 2.5 hour nap. When I woke up I... Read more

Vacation Goals --> Getting Ready for Fall

Monday, August 13, 2012      0 comments

I'm on a two week break from school and work (amazing!) and I really want to use this time to get ready for the "deluge" - 4 months of grad school and student teaching without any breaks. Here are my goals for the next two weeks: 1. Stay un... Read more
