I'm not really a student, but I've been thinking about maybe getting a third degree... in French. My local university allows you to "bank" courses over time that you can later apply towards a degree, so for the past two years I've been taking F... Read more
I kind of love December.
In the same two-week span I get to celebrate my birthday, Christmas and New Years!
Also, this year I'm doing something a little crazy for the holidays.
Usually, I work until a few days before Christmas... Read more
... but I'll show you my body! On July 24th I weighed 152 pounds, today I am 126. My immediate goal is 125, but really, it's not hugely important to me anymore. I'd also like to eventually reach 119, but I'm again open to taking my sweet time... Read more
I have a coworker who I've never established much of a relationship with. After more than a year of working together, he came to me and said, "Ummmm... what's your name?" Dude! Couldn't you have discretely asked someone else in our office?

I'll be hitting the town this Saturday night (with a more reliable friend than last weekend!) and this is what I'll be wearing:

Most of my workout wardrobe are clothes that I wore to my weekly fitness class in high school. There is also a pair of (probably knock-off) Adidas pants that I bought at a weird department store in a developing country. Oh, and my sports bras ... Read more
A friend did some very unfriendly things last night. I met a guy and when I went to the washroom, she basically propositioned him. Then she bailed on our mutual plans and left with him, accidentally taking my purse with my keys. Yup, she took... Read more
Every week I go to a bootcamp class that is ninety minutes, and the gym has it labelled "Intermediate/Advanced". When I started it felt impossible, but now I find it comfortably challenging.
This morning I decided to drop in for a class ... Read more
I currently have 10,124 fitness minutes. This is equal to more than seven days! Yup, that's a week! That's seven days! That's one hundred and sixty-eight hours! Ten thousand, one hundred and twenty-four minutes. Or six hundred and seven th... Read more
My favorite boot-camp instructor, who I credit with pretty much all of my fitness progress, will not be returning until 2012. Sadly, she's off for medical reasons. Instead we'll have a series of substitute instructors, and I'm really fearful t... Read more
I'm starting to pay more attention to couponing!
Yesterday, I bought $150 worth of Starbucks Cards from Shoppers Drug Mart (in Canada). If you buy $150 in gift cards, they'll add 8,000 Optimum points to your account. This took me up to t... Read more
Looking back over my food tracker, I ate over my calorie range (WAY over, some days) for EIGHT days in a row, on and around Halloween!
It's nice that I'm thin and pretty enough to get lots of free shots at the bar... but did I really nee... Read more
My bootcamp instructor's iPod wasn't working tonight, and nobody else had one. I thought she was just going to test it out to see if the sound system was irreparably broken, but we ended up using my music for the full ninety minute... Read more
