June 1: Restarting the OCD
I haven't been very active on Sparkpeople lately, but I'm still here, still working on losing the last little bit of weight I want to lose. I should say: working on it, then not working on it, lather, rinse, and repeat. I ha... Read more
Last night I had a 1-hour run planned. My last long run was so great -- I felt so energized and positive about it. But this run, the first 30 minutes anyway, were not so great. My energy just wasn't there. It was windy out and colder than I like... Read more
Remembering Biggest Loser
One year ago we were wrapping up our Biggest Loser competition. I was eating extremely light (1200) in an attempt to win one of the top 3 spots. I got down to my lowest adult weight ever (122.5), and immediately started gaining it back when the ... Read more

I'm on Day 6 of sickness, and I'm sick of being sick! All training has ceased. I wish I could sleep, but I'm too congested to breath. Ugh, hate this.
How long does it take to get over a cold?... Read more
I'm sidelined today by a nasty cold. I'm hoping it passes quickly because I was making such great progress with my running -- building back up to where I was before Christmas. AND I signed up for a 7K race in March, so I need all the time I can ... Read more
I seem to do better with the whole fitness / weight-loss thing when I become 100% absorbed by it. You know me - that whole middle ground thing eludes me. So I'm all-in. OCD time!
I started up a Facebook group, and we have about 30 people! T... Read more
Howdy! I'm back after being away (super busy) during Christmas, and now I'm seriously committing to getting back in shape. I'm excited!
I believe that when you've been lazy and eating poorly for a while, your body just craves physical movem... Read more

Two Good Days
Quickie update: Day 2 went well. I went a tiny bit over in calories, only because after I ate it, I discovered that the yogurt I had for supper was higher calorie than I expected (170!). I also ran, and it was HARD. I need to remember to never t... Read more
One Good Day
The new, big number on the scale and the big bloated feeling shocked me into eating like a reasonable person yesterday. Nothing extreme. Just reasonable. I even did my toning exercises. I postponed my run until today though. It would have been t... Read more
Yes, I am rebooting. Again. I am sick of this hamster wheel. A few days of motivation and then............. a terrifying slide into obesity.
I was on track for ONE WEEK before I completely stopped tracking. I'm not even sure why. Apathy? ... Read more
Ah, November. I started the month with GREAT ambition. I was SUPER dedicated the first week. And then..................
I got lazy? I felt run-down. I suspected my iron was low again. I started slacking. And eating. I had a bad week.

Just Like Starting Over
I gained 12 pounds. It seemed like every bit I gained since last April's low point went largely unnoticed. I still felt good and my clothes fit. And then, gradually, I felt quite fat again. My pants are tight, and those few pounds that seemed oh... Read more
Yesterday I had the thing at work that I was totally dreading. I taught an online class. I've never done anything like this and pretty much NEVER EVER EVER do public speaking. I can get pretty tongue-tied. Deer in headlights.
But I agreed ... Read more
