In December, I rode my recumbent bike every day. I started the daily bike ride habit on August 1, so that means it was a 154-day streak on December 30. (Yes, I’ve biked eve... Read more

November wrap-up

Monday, December 01, 2014      3 comments

In November, I rode my recumbent bike every day. I started the daily bike ride on August 1, so that's a 123-day streak - so far. And I've gone from 6 minutes a session to 14 minutes a session. I'm still hoping to be up to 15-16 minutes a session... Read more

August wrap-up

Sunday, August 31, 2014      1 comments

I weighed myself this morning, and my weight was up a pound. A few weeks ago, that would have really upset me, and I probably would have given up on my health quest for the billionth time. But today, it didn't even faze me. Earlier this su... Read more

Remember how far you've come...

I haven't blogged in a long, long time, but I felt the need to share this today. Last week was the first week since my hospital stay (October 2013) that I averaged 5000 steps a day. That's HUGE. And I've managed to (recumbent) bike for 6 m... Read more

If all goes to plan, I will be finished with my doctorate in September 2015. Per my cardiologist I need to take my weight-loss slowly, so I'm just going to align my weight loss and education goals, and aim for a target weight of 150 by the end o... Read more

Hi all. I can’t believe that I've been away from SparkPeople for so long. Life became pretty crazy, and trying to lose weight (heck, trying to be *healthy*) stopped being a priority. I've been working a lot with the local theater group, mostly b... Read more

Trying to do this PROPERLY

Sunday, March 11, 2012      0 comments

I was going to blog specifically about the health stuff, but that would take too long, so I will save that update for another time. In a handful of words, though: I'm still alive and I have a bit more energy, so hooray!! :) To recap: I over... Read more

The First Week of 2012

Saturday, January 07, 2012      0 comments

This blog will be short, since I am still working on my 2012 goal list, and defining some of those goals will have to wait until I talk to my cardiologist at the end of the month. In the meantime, I am tracking my food every day, and I joined th... Read more

Thanks for the goodies!

It has been a while since I've posted a blog, so here's an update on where I've been, and what's been going on in my world. A couple of months ago, after many tests and a lot of worrying on my part, I was diagnosed with a form of dysautonom... Read more

Starting weight: 249 Goal weight this week: 235.0 Actual weight this week: 216.0 (net total lost: 33.0 pounds) How's this for crazy: I am less than 10 pounds away from being Overweight (as opposed to Obese). It seems strange to be exc... Read more

Facing my Fears (part 2 of ??)

Thursday, April 07, 2011      2 comments

I survived the dentist appointment this morning! Yay me! :) The dentist and hygienist were awesome - they were very patient with me. And when it was over, I went straight to the surgeon's office with my referral before I could chicken out. ... Read more

Facing my fears

Wednesday, April 06, 2011      3 comments

I did something brave today. I made a dentist appointment. That may not sound like much, but I have a serious fear of dentists (thank the butcher who treated my brothers and me when we were kids. :P) So why did I make the appointment?... Read more
