The Fork is My Friend
I had an insight today: How much healthier would my diet be if I only ate things that had to be eaten with a utensil? Clearly, fresh fruit and vegetables are, for the most part, excluded. But this rule would exclude sandwiches: although my sandw... Read more
Last Friday's Swim
I can't believe I forgot to memorialize this. I go back and re-read my blogs from time to time, and last Friday's swim was a break-through workout.
I've been using a gadget called a Tech-Tok. It gives audible feedback when I'm rolling my hi... Read more
The Cold Finally Caught Me
I skipped a meeting last night because I just wasn't up to it. I'd already arranged to come into work late today, because the meeting meant I wouldn't get to sleep until eleven p.m. or so.
I think I have a bit of a cold. I have allergies, s... Read more
The lows are predicted to be in the teens most of the week, so I won't be riding my bike. I might brave the ride Thursday evening, because the overnight low should be in the 20's. But, barring that, I will be driving home the next few nights. My... Read more
Because of the Tuesday holiday, and unseasonably cold weather, I didn't commute by bike this week. That made getting to the gym a lot easier.
Monday evening, I did strength training and yoga. Wednesday, did intervals on an exercise bike. Ye... Read more
Why I Don't Take The Numbers Too Seriously
Wednesday, I ate within range. I walked at lunch, and I spent an hour on a exercise bike in the gym doing intervals. The following morning, both my weight and my body fat percentage were up.
Yesterday, I ate lunch in a restaurant, ate an en... Read more
As the day passed, I found myself getting sorer from last night's workout. Not terribly so, just enough to make me know I worked out. Some of it is in my upper back - probably from the yoga.
Having a Tuesday holiday makes for a weird week... Read more
Baby, It's Cold Outside
I leave work at 5 p.m. Yoga starts at 6:15. I can get to the club in 15 minutes, so yesterday, it occurred to me that I can probably get in a strength training workout before yoga.
With the exception of the short, body-weight strength trai... Read more
Two Blog Posts In One Morning? Is Facebook Broken?
Apparently I'm feeling long-winded. Or inspired. Or bored.
I just changed my ticker to reflect my goal weight. In the past, I've set goals that represent losing 10% of my body weight. That's a lot less intimidating than putting that BIG goa... Read more
A Most Amazing Monday
Yay! It's Monday!
I have no idea why I'm so happy it's Monday, but I am feeling really upbeat. Let's hear it for maintaining this positive mood!
So, had a nice chat with the potential coach Friday evening. If I hire her, I will be her ... Read more
Swim? Mow the Lawn? Sell a Kidney?
It's my afternoon off, and I don't have to go to court. I'd planned to go for a swim, but a little while ago, it occurred to me that I could go home now and mow the lawn while there's still daylight so that we don't have to do it tomorrow. And I... Read more
The Program Only Works if You Work It
Three weeks into the Quick Start, and I'm doing my usual mediocre part. Each one of these weeks has had at least one day in which my diet was a total wreck, if not two. I've missed a few workouts.
But heck, it's only three weeks.
I d... Read more
In Response to GHK's Zombie Survival Guide
I have long been a hiker. Prior to meeting The Hubs, I was a solo hiker. Solo female hikers are a source of endless fascination to many. I'm actually much safer the farther I get into the back country than I am in civilization. Nevertheless, man... Read more
Not Sure Why This Is Happening, But I'm Loving It!
I was at the very end of an entertaining and inspirational blog post when my browser shut down and restarted itself. I am saddened that this blog post window reopened BLANK. The post wasn't so entertaining and inspirational that I want to write ... Read more
