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

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!

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

So last night a friend in my DnD group introduced me to the "Hogwarts Running Club":

Sunday fun day

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

Back on track, but annoyed

Friday, September 11, 2015      2 comments

Today was much, much healthier than yesterday's binge. I got a good night's sleep, went for a hike, and ate really well - salmon and salad for dinner, yum! I got rather annoyed at my boyfriend today, though. We made it to the top of the mou... Read more

Got binge-y tonight. Real binge-y. Cookies dipped in peanut butter, a whole box of Annie's mac and cheese, big handful of macadamia nuts, and a seemingly innocuous meal of chicken and cabbage at the start of it all. Total loss of self control wh... Read more

Calling today a success

Monday, September 07, 2015      4 comments

Wow am I glad I tracked my food today! It felt like I really cut loose on the food front today, what with it being a holiday and all. I made a latte with breakfast, splurged on some GF toast with my eggs, had dinner out with friends and enj... Read more

Great hiking day!

I had a great fitness victory today! My bf and I climbed Mt. Nittany, a local hike that goes up 600 feet elevation in just half a mile...and we did it without stopping to catch our breath! We've been trying to do this hike at least once a week t... Read more

A trio of successes!

This morning I weighed in at 163.4 pounds, officially the lightest I've been in at least a year and a half. Then, I was way behind on laundry so I grabbed an old pair of too small size 6 jeans...and they fit! Finally this afternoon I r... Read more

Starting this week off on a high note!

Monday, August 31, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday was a fantastically healthy day. I woke up, had a small breakfast, packed some spaghetti squash and meatballs for lunch with some yogurt for a snack, went off and spent a day swimming at the lake, had some beef and veggies for dinner, ... Read more
