Italy bound!

Saturday, March 14, 2015      1 comments

Well, Monday afternoon I am off to Italy for a ten day intensive geology field trip! We're going to be doing a lot of physical activity (caving, hiking, generally walking around) and since I can't eat wheat-based products I won't be particularly... Read more

Healthy choices!

Tuesday, March 10, 2015      0 comments

Some friends and I have a regular board game night where we get together and, well, play nerdy board games. There's usually some form of hideously unhealthy takeout food involved, so I've started packing my own home-cooked meals instead. Tonight... Read more

Resisting temptation

Thursday, March 05, 2015      2 comments

Man, losing weight while in a relationship is HARD! Yesterday my bf gave me a ride to the grocery store, and he wanted to stop at Wendy's on the way back. He was more than happy to share his french fries and frosty, but I resisted! Because... Read more

For my next challenge...

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      1 comments

Today I discovered that there is a sub-reddit for a "body transformation fitness challenge" with an opportunity to win real-world prizes. I've loved having the motivation to stay on target that's come along with the 5% challenge here on Spark, s... Read more

Back to low-carb

Saturday, February 21, 2015      2 comments

Tracking every bite that goes into my mouth is kind of exhausting, and if I eat a little sugar or rice or GF pasta I just want more. So I'm going back to low-carb paleo, at least from now until my trip to Italy next month. I'll make an exception... Read more

Today my boyfriend said, "No, I'm not getting fast food. I need to start eating healthier too." emoticon <... Read more

A birthday, a big milestone, and getting back in the groove

Sunday, February 15, 2015      2 comments

I turned 31 last Wednesday. It feels a little weird, being really firmly past my 20s, but ultimately 31 feels just like 30. And 30 was a FANTASTIC year in my life - new boyfriend, new cat, some travel, some new friends, work successes - pretty m... Read more

Tough week

Sunday, February 08, 2015      1 comments

This past week was a tough one. There's something about the persistent stress of a gigantic exam looming overhead that makes me want to stress eat, and it's hard to resist when you have to keep your butt glued to a chair writing for 8+ hours a d... Read more

Stressed out, but going strong!

Sparkfriends - especially you in the Winter 5% Challenge, and double-especially my fellow Shooting Stars - thank you, thank you SO MUCH for being here and giving me an incentive to stay on track right now! Even if I don't spend much time interac... Read more

Weigh in - holding steady

Saturday, January 24, 2015      3 comments

The number on the scale this morning was identical to the number last week. But - I ate quite poorly last night (Indian buffet and ice cream), and I woke up feeling very bloated with a heavy, full stomach. If the number hasn't changed betwe... Read more

Success breeding success

Thursday, January 22, 2015      1 comments

I had a craving for ice cream today. A big, bad craving. I was close to caving - I have none in the house, but I had to go to the store for groceries anyway, and I had every intention of picking up a pint, consequences be damned. But then I... Read more

Weekends

Sunday, January 18, 2015      2 comments

Well, this weekend was a little more footloose and fancy free (food wise) than I had planned on! My boyfriend had a friend visiting so we went out for a couple of meals and then to watch the football game this afternoon. Then another friend had ... Read more
