Getting off Spark for a bit

Saturday, November 07, 2015      5 comments

Hey folks, sorry to anyone that this lets down (particularly sorry to the WRJ&Grs) but the logging in every day, tracking minutes, obsessing about LTGL goals, and feeling bad whenever I don't have minutes to report or eat something unhealthy is ... Read more

Bad, bad weekend

Monday, November 02, 2015      5 comments

I want to apologize to my 2015 Fall Challenge teammates for being a slacker the past few days. I am not having a good time of things right now. There was a conference I was forced to go to as a condition of receiving a certain fellowship. A... Read more

Trying too hard

Monday, October 26, 2015      3 comments

Sometimes I push myself too hard, too fast, and it always comes back to bite me in the behind. This was one of those weeks. I was pushing hard on exercising, pushing hard to eat only good things, putting in really long hours at work and wor... Read more

Silly pants, aka The best laid plans...

Thursday, October 15, 2015      3 comments

I set out on a run after work today but alas, it was not meant to be. Legs? Felt fine. Breathing? Normal. Shoes? Comfy. Weather? Beautiful! But - pants? My pants? My swishy, comfy, stylish but practical pants? Well now, those silly, si... Read more

Back on target

I want to thank everyone who left such kind words of encouragement on my last blog. I was feeling really down this morning after having an off week/weekend, but you all made me feel so much better and really helped me stay on track today. I... Read more

Not so great week

Monday, October 12, 2015      5 comments

I've been completely off my game the past week or so, maybe slightly longer. I was in a good groove for a few months in August and September, and then school got really stressful and the Fall Challenge started and I pushed myself too hard. Next ... Read more

Patronus 5K!

I did it! I ran my first ever 5K in 41:30! It felt sooooo good! I think I'm really starting to like this running thing. emoticonRead more

Holding steady

Friday, October 02, 2015      6 comments

It's been a slow week on the weight-loss front for me. I've been exercising regularly - got in a run, a hike, lots of walks, and a couple bodyweight workouts in the past seven days - but we're in the middle of at least a week straight of ra... Read more

The strangest 'binge' - another NSV

Saturday, September 26, 2015      6 comments

I got home last night feeling really unsettled and binge-y. That kind of mood where you're just a little stressed out and don't quite know what you want but part of you is pretty sure you'd feel a lot better if you just started shoveling food in... Read more

Serious progress!

I weighed in down in the 150's today!!!! emoticon Read more

Running buddies!

Thursday, September 24, 2015      0 comments

So, I really like running but it's normally a solitary activity for me. Feel the urge, strap on my shoes, head out the door and go my own route, at my own pace. The health benefits are great but I mostly do it because it's an enjoyable stress ou... Read more

Regular readers may remember that I stopped drinking alcohol entirely a few weeks ago because I had noticed that even small amounts - just one glass of wine with dinner - were leaving me feeling hung over and bloated. The discerning reader ... Read more

A few small victories

Saturday, September 19, 2015      4 comments

First, I weighed in at 161.2 pounds yesterday (and again today) - officially the lightest I have been in about two years! Then, despite it being that TOM and feeling like my food cravings were wildly out of control, I logged everything I at... Read more

Patronus 5k

So last night a friend in my DnD group introduced me to the "Hogwarts Running Club":
lub-patronus-5k-2015 It's a virtual running co... Read more

Sunday fun day

Sunday, September 13, 2015      1 comments

I went canoeing on a very shallow, rather wide river with a group of friends this afternoon. Being on the water was great, and a great workout! I definitely want to spend more time on the water, maybe kayaking next time. Alas, I pulled a cl... Read more
