iPod won't work, and I hate running without music
Well, I don't haaate it. But I do dislike it. I'd much rather run with some tunes going to distract me and help me keep my pace up.
But I think the iPod has maybe seen its last days. It's a really old one anyway, but we don't have anothe... Read more
I sure do like food.
Last night's party was fun...and I ate way too much. I did try to fill up on fruits and veggies before the real hors d'oeuvres came out, but of course fruits can run high on calories too. And then I still wanted to sample everything, and "every... Read more
"Heavy hors d'oeuvres" sounds scary...
Off to my husband's company Christmas party where the foo d is heavy hors d'oeuvres. This makes me a bit anxious bc surely it is mostly fried stuff. But we shall see. Maybe some will be healthy. I'll do my best! And I'll enjoy wearing my prett... Read more
Obesity now a bigger problem than hunger??
This is kind of crazy. I mean, I'm glad hunger isn't as much of an issue as it used to be, in a global sense, but....wow, what a turnaround. This is suc... Read more
New food: tapioca!
My aunt made some tapioca pudding, and WOW was it good! I'd never had tapioca before, but it was on my to-do list of foods to try. And unlike the seaweed from the other day, it turns out tapioca makes for some delicious food!
It doesn't see... Read more
I tried a new kind of produce....and this time, it was DISGUSTING
Now that my husband and I have moved, we have access to so many new and huge and awesome and fabulously stocked grocery stores, including Trader Joe's, and I LOVE IT!
So I took the opportunity to try a new food the other day, because I happ... Read more
And here's another example of how I've become a terrible person through all this weight loss....
I struggle with exercise compulsion. A lot. And I still struggle with fear of food. A lot. It makes me kind of a terrible person sometimes.
Today's example: My husband's uncle is dying. He's had a lot of problems with tumors and cancer and... Read more
Apparently I'm pretty hard on my feet
So here's the laundry list of things my podiatrist and I discussed:
~ Numbness/poor motor control over one of my toes (the 4th toe on the left foot, to be precise. This started when I was REALLY over-walking in shoes that were completely de... Read more
I feel like Paul freaking Bunyan
Minus the big blue ox.
Also minus the giant stature.
And minus any real lumberjack activity.
But I did chop down a tree all by myself!
Okay, what I actually did was take a hatchet to a holly tree (which wasn't all that big) ... Read more
Awesome housewarming party!!
We had a bunch of family over today for a housewarming party to celebrate our pretty new home, and it was lots of fun. I ate waaaaay too much, obviously, but I enjoyed it all and a lot of it was pretty nutritious (okay no, not the multiple piece... Read more
Oooh, I like my resistance bands!
I tried them today for the first time, and my arms certainly felt nice and tired afterwards, so hopefully it was a good workout! And it was nice to be able to catch up on some TV while I did it in the comfort of my own home, without being at the... Read more
Got some resistance bands!
Now that I no longer have access to a free gym with resistance machines, I'm having to make do with at-home strength training. I've got a pair of 5 lb dumbbells and a pair of 12 lb dumbbells, which I can do pretty well with, but I wanted to try ... Read more
So busy with moving, there's barely time for sparking!
All this unpacking and sorting through stuff in our new house is keeping me SUPER busy. Not too busy to exercise, of course! I've been either going running or going for long bike rides every day, but up until this evening I've had to rely on an ... Read more
Such a busy long day! It's been pack-pack-pack and clean-clean-clean around here...but I did go running for an hour and 25 minutes this morning, and then I had Zumba this evening. I know I should only do one OR the other in a given day, but this... Read more
Body fat up to 14% now!
According to my gynecologist, body fat generally needs to be at least 14.5% in order to have a period (something I've been lacking since, oh, FEBRUARY - right when my husband and I started trying to start a family). My body fat hit a low of 11%... Read more
