Over all of it

Tuesday, March 02, 2010      3 comments

I've been on edge for the past week or so, and I've just about had it. Last Wednesday, I got the shocking news that my cousin's wife was killed in a workplace accident. Thing is, it was the kind of workplace accident that makes the front page o... Read more

Not as happy or as driven as I usually am

Thursday, February 25, 2010      1 comments

This week, I feel like I've taken a giant step backward, even though I still seem to be moving forward. Last week, I was all about declining paczki, "food is fuel," and getting to the gym regardless of how I felt or what time it was. This week, ... Read more

My own version of "eat, pray, love"

Wednesday, February 17, 2010      0 comments

I honestly don't know what that book is about, but the title "Eat, Pray, Love" pretty much sums up what's on my mind today. Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten period leading up to Easter. It's one of two fast days during Lent, t... Read more

Laissez les bon temps rouler! (Sort of)

Tuesday, February 16, 2010      1 comments

"I'm too tired." "It's too late." "I'm too busy." "I have to run errands." "I didn't eat yet." "It's cold out." "There's a TV show on tonight that I *really* want to see." "I DON'T WANNA!!" And that, my dears, is my version of... Read more

Ready for a Monday morning reboot

Monday, February 15, 2010      0 comments

I had kind of a "lazy, but not lazy" weekend. That is to say, I started out the weekend working late to get part of my project done, then went immediately from dropping off my laptop at home to changed and at the gym in about twenty minutes or s... Read more

I don't want to be sick

Friday, February 12, 2010      0 comments

So, as part of my commitment to better health, I had a check-up with the doctor on Monday. It had been a while since I'd been to the doctor or had blood work done and I wanted to make sure that I wasn't going to keel over on the track at some po... Read more

Regrets, I've had (more than) a few

Wednesday, February 10, 2010      6 comments

So, this is what was running through my head when I was woggling (I love that word- so descriptive!) around the track last night, while surrounded by other runners: "I wish I'd taken up running when I was *her* age." "I wish I'd stayed ac... Read more

Finding the time

Thursday, February 04, 2010      0 comments

I have a bit of a quandary this week. I finally feel like I'm really making progress on C25K. Last week, I did three week one sessions and finally made it to doing all eight without stopping early or starting late. This is a very big deal to me.... Read more

Not-so-great expectations

Wednesday, February 03, 2010      3 comments

So, after the first week I was on Spark People, I was stunned on the first Monday because when I weighed myself, the scale said I lost five pounds. Which made me suspicious, because it's more than I expected (or actually wanted) to lose. Then be... Read more

Ready to get a move on

Monday, February 01, 2010      0 comments

It seems that I am finally in a groove, when it comes to working out and eating well. I did C25K three times last week. It appears that adding it as my team goal was just the kick in the pants I needed. If I don't follow through, I'm not just le... Read more

So doggone tired

Thursday, January 28, 2010      1 comments

Last night I left work at 6:00, went grocery shopping (and managed to forget peanut butter and bananas), got home, fed my cat and went to the gym. It seems the more I C25K, the more excited I am to go. Which is excellent! I'm still struggling to... Read more

How I baked cupcakes last night, but replaced guilt with pride

Wednesday, January 27, 2010      3 comments

Although I've never been much of a cook (I'm good at it, but seldom do it), I have always been a baker. Maybe it was that first obsession with my Easy Bake Oven, but I find baking so satisfying. I always get excited over my birthday, because I b... Read more

A new appreciation for cooking for one

Tuesday, January 26, 2010      1 comments

I made a pretty fantastic dinner yesterday. A co-worker gave me some frozen black-eyed peas, so I made Hoppin' John. I've never made or even eaten Hoppin' John, but when I think black-eyed peas, I think Hoppin' John. And Fergie, but that's a who... Read more

Lesson learned

Sunday, January 24, 2010      1 comments

So, yesterday, between a very early hair appointment and a Trader Joe's run, I called my mother from the Panera parking lot and said, "It's not a very healthy, low fat breakfast, but it will be better than the McDonalds breakfast I was contempl... Read more

Bad knees and weird food stuff won't stop me

Wednesday, January 20, 2010      0 comments

So, this is the third day I've done the C25K week one program, but the first time I've done it already hurting. I've had problems with my knees for years from a variety of causes (skiing, weight gain, genetics). It almost always hurts to some de... Read more
