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

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!

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

Rough day

Tuesday, January 13, 2015      3 comments

So I've been really on top of things the past couple of weeks, getting into the swing of making healthy choices for the Winter 5% Challenge (go Shooting Stars!). But yesterday was the first day of the semester, and all the stress that I had man... Read more

My mantra - choose awesome!

Sunday, January 04, 2015      3 comments

I've run with this idea before but I think it bears repeating. In order to be successful, in any endeavor, we just need to "choose awesome." Every day, every decision, every moment we have a choice: we can take the easy way out, being lazy ... Read more

Saturday, January 03, 2015      0 comments

New Years got me a bit off track, and I binged yesterday (triggered by some combination of gray weather, missing my boyfriend, and fighting off a migraine), but I woke up this morning in a great mood and ready to do All The Healthy Things again.... Read more
