In consideration of last Thursday's epiphany, I'm going to introduce some new rules to help keep my calorie differentials in check: 1. exercise more, burning at least 250 calories per day 2. eat a little less, at least 250 calories below ... Read more
Thursday Examination, and Answers!
Thursday, March 29, 2012      2 comments

I am excited. First, tomorrow is Friday. Second, tomorrow I work from home. It's still work, but it's a welcome change of pace. I took the day off to do something I've put off for several months: replacing my car's timing belt. Now, to address W... Read more
Wednesday, and the Cycle Continues
Wednesday, March 28, 2012      2 comments

I don't have much time to write, so I'll post a summary of what I want to blog about later (mostly to help me remember): 1. continuing weight fluctuations 2. no soda for four days (and counting) 3. epiphany at the book club last night r... Read more
The Promise of Monday
Monday, March 26, 2012      1 comments

I'm back down to 133.4, to where I was before that little uptick. I think the scale reflects the importance of rest days and relaxation. Sunday consisted of little nothings around my apartment and going out to dinner and a play with a friend. We... Read more
Sunday Blues

It's cold and overcast and I only slept a few hours. Last night I met up with some friends. I drank two vodka sodas and stayed up late playing cards. They had a bag o... Read more
Saturday Goals & Incentives
Saturday, March 24, 2012      1 comments

I think it's time to incentivize myself, to spend some dough to motivate good eating and consistent exercise. Here's a possible schedule: Currently: 135.6 ("AKA, I diet to gain weight!") 132.5 - manicure/pedicure 130 - music/festival ti... Read more

Friday, and Regression
Friday, March 23, 2012      0 comments

One step forward, two steps back. Hopped on the scale this morning and weighed 135.6 when I was expecting future loss. 133? 132? C'mon! But, I'm not too concerned: 1. It's physically impossible to gain 2.2 lbs. in 2 days 2. My weight alwa... Read more
Prep for Thursday

Normally, I'd wait until tomorrow to post, but I thought I'd save some time, especially if I plan to actually go hiking before work. I have a busy couple days planned. Tomorrow night I'm going to an event for work; Friday morning I need to wake ... Read more
Wednesday, and Some Progress
Wednesday, March 21, 2012      0 comments

Yippee! I lost 1.6 pounds according to the scale today, from 135 to 133.4. Funny, because last night I was a little concerned after chowing down on roasted cauliflower soup, a few slices of french bread, cheddar cheese, and two small glasses of ... Read more
Tuesday, Day 5
Tuesday, March 20, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday was difficult. I made an unscheduled trip to the dentist because my filling had fallen out Sunday night and needed to be replaced. I made the one mistake I make every once in a while when I forget it's a mistake. It was around 12:30, h... Read more
Starting Monday Right
Monday, March 19, 2012      2 comments

It must be dissatisfaction that leads to weight gain, maybe not in your case, but certainly in mine. And it may be that dissatisfaction is the wrong word, that there is some word that better describes the feeling that results from maintaining/ga... Read more
St. Paddy's Day & Sunday
Sunday, March 18, 2012      0 comments

My boyfriend, his mom, and I all went to the Cat & Fiddle for dinner and ate while the rain got heavier and we had to awkwardly move our table and chairs. I don't think I've ever eaten while rain poured down the back of my raincoat before. My bo... Read more
