Positive thinking
Tuesday, July 22, 2014      6 comments

Realized today that I tend to focus on my eating and exercise mistakes at the end of the say rather than the accomplishments. I never thought of myself as a negative person. In fact I'm usually pretty positive but apparently not when it comes to... Read more

Spark Activity Tracker - solution for where to put it
Thursday, January 02, 2014      7 comments

I ordered the Spark Activity Tracker since it seemed a good way to track my steps and also record my exercise on SparkPeople. It's not always accurate in terms of how long I've been exercising, but so far I enjoy using it. Right now I'm at 6000 ... Read more

I did pretty good over Christmas, not stuffing my face although I did go over my calorie count. I also ran every day while on vacation, which was fantastic. I read the One Day Way by Chantel Hobbs and it was really inspiring and helpful. It... Read more
Back at it again
Monday, December 23, 2013      4 comments

I feel like I do this all the time: Something sidetracked my fitness and eating, I gained weight, and I finally reached a point where I was too disgusted to continue and so I'm back on SparkPeople. But I guess that's better than not getting back... Read more
FMD - off the diet
Monday, July 22, 2013      7 comments

I quit the Fast Metabolism Diet after 3 weeks. I think I was doing something wrong in Phase 3, although I couldn't figure out what it was. I'd lose weight in phases 1 and 2, and then gain it back in phase 3, and so each week I lost only 1-1.5 po... Read more
FMD day 6 and day 7
Friday, July 05, 2013      3 comments

Yesterday was day 6, but I had such a bad headache last night that I couldn't write my blog entry, so I'm doing it today. Yesterday when I woke up, I was disappointed that I hadn't lost any weight. :( I hadn't gained any either. :) I t... Read more
FMD day 5
Thursday, July 04, 2013      5 comments

I'm feeling better today, but I was surprised to get a low grade headache in the early evening. I'm not sure what's going on --if it's because of my period or if I'm getting a detox headache. I had really bad cramps today and took Tylenol, ... Read more
FMD day 4
Wednesday, July 03, 2013      7 comments

Today was so much better than yesterday! And one of the main reasons is that my headache is now only a slight, mild one. Another reason is that I got on the scale this morning and I've lost 2.4 pounds! I was bloated later yesterday but I wa... Read more
FMD diet day 3 - WORST. DAY. EVER.
Tuesday, July 02, 2013      9 comments

I had high hopes for today, but the lingering headache I had yesterday became a full-blown migraine today. I kept to the diet and had very little problem sticking to only protein and veggies, but then the migraine got worse. I'm pretty sure... Read more
Fast Metabolism Diet: day 2
Sunday, June 30, 2013      6 comments

I started the FMD yesterday after reading the book on Friday. I really want to lose about 30 pounds also because I think it will help my running time improve and lessen the stress on my knees and ankle. I had a lot of the foodstuff on hand so I ... Read more
Overeating = guilt + bloating = disaster!
Wednesday, May 22, 2013      5 comments

I made a significant realization today. I had overeaten on Sunday, and I was feeling a bit guilty about that. On Monday, I was really bloated and exercise was AWFUL. However, that day I ate very clean and so on Tuesday I was much less bloated. I... Read more
Weird quad muscle twitching
Friday, April 27, 2012      7 comments

I ran today for the first time in about two weeks, and it felt great. But then hours after the run, I noticed that my rectus femoris (I think) muscle was twitching sporadically. It didn't hurt but it was very annoying. The first thing I did... Read more
