Running against the wind

Sunday, May 02, 2010      4 comments

Last night, I had my first outdoor run. I'm not really sure how I feel about it. Up until now, I've done all my running around the indoor track at my community center. I used the unpredictable weather as an excuse, but the fact was, I was a bit ... Read more

The (very odd) source of my weight loss goal

Friday, April 30, 2010      1 comments

If you were to ask me what I think my ideal size would be, I would immediately say "Size 12, definitely." I have a very specific, silly and somewhat weird reason for thinking that. I think it makes a very "Friday afternoon" kind of story. W... Read more

Change you can see!

Wednesday, April 28, 2010      4 comments

Yesterday I wore a new cardigan and tank top to work and I was surprised and pleased to note that my waist looked more defined. It looked more hourglassy and less blobby. I thought it was just that the sweater had a remarkably flattering cut. It... Read more

Progress and girly stuff

Monday, April 26, 2010      1 comments

Woo! I must really be a blogger now- I attracted a spammer. I wonder how many calories you burn deleting comments? Anyway, I've been really happy with my progress lately. I had set a goal of getting to 210 by the end of April. Well, on Satu... Read more

Assignment: Trouble Goal

Wednesday, April 21, 2010      1 comments

So, this week's SparkDiet "action step" is to blog about a "trouble goal" and try to come up with a solution. I have a lot of trouble goals. This is due, in large part, to my habit of making plans and then not following through. So I develop go... Read more

C25K Week 3 begins

Tuesday, April 20, 2010      3 comments

So, last night I moved on from C25K week 2 to week 3. You know, the week where your running intervals go from being measured in seconds to be measured in minutes? I knew I could run 90 seconds without too much trouble in week 2. But week 3 is ru... Read more

Things: One excellent, a couple iffy

Wednesday, April 14, 2010      5 comments

I made a decision this past weekend that I was going to break through the plateau weight (215.5) I've been stuck at for over a month and get down to 210 by the end of the month. Weighed myself this morning and I'm at 212.5! I weighed myself four... Read more

Yesterday was pretty much awesome

Tuesday, April 13, 2010      3 comments

So, not only did I wake up with that unexpected "less tummy" feeling yesterday, I had a pretty freaking fantastic day, all around. First of all, on Sunday night, I sent a message to an old boyfriend congratulating him on the birth of his n... Read more

What a weird and wonderful feeling

Monday, April 12, 2010      1 comments

So, I don't know what the difference between today and yesterday was, but I woke up feeling like my tummy was significantly less rotund than usual. Not flat by any means, but more like a small mound of fat sitting on top of a potentially "flat s... Read more

Planned "cheating"

Thursday, March 25, 2010      2 comments

Tonight, I'm going to "cheat" on my "diet." Except that I'm not, because a) "cheating" implies some kind of furtive, impulse-based eating; and b) you can't cheat on a diet if you're not really on a diet, except in the classical definition ... Read more

And on that note...

Tuesday, March 23, 2010      2 comments

The one thing I've learned from annual performance reviews and goal setting at work is that goals must be specific, measurable and time-targeted. And on that note, I have taken out my handy-dandy homemade 18 month calendar and come up with a pla... Read more

Complacency is the enemy

Tuesday, March 23, 2010      3 comments

Two months ago, I was a relatively new SparkPeople user. One month ago, I was well on my way to becoming a veteran and was teetering on the brink of losing my first fifteen pounds. Three months in, I've stalled, gained a pound or two and gotten ... Read more

Fat and sassy, emphasis on the sassy

Wednesday, March 10, 2010      4 comments

Lately, I've been feeling pretty good about the way I look and feel. I've only lost fourteen pounds so far... Okay, hold up. I have to interrupt myself for a second. "Only" fourteen pounds? That's just over 6% weight loss. And it's almost ... Read more

Ogling yourself in the mirror

Tuesday, March 09, 2010      0 comments

When I first started going to the gym five years ago, I used to laugh inwardly at all the guys in the free weight area. There are a lot of guys at my gym who spend all of their time on free weights, and they invariably spend a lot of time betwee... Read more

Close distance dedication (an odd little entry)

Thursday, March 04, 2010      0 comments

I was just listening to my iPod while working and shuffle popped up a real favorite, Social Distortion's "Far Behind." I've always loved it, but this time it made me think about my fat. So, I'd like to dedicate this song to my fat and all of the... Read more
