It's Been a While
Howdy, friends! It's been a while since I blogged. Not much to say, I guess. I'm spinning my wheels with this weight-loss thing. My motivation is yoyoing as much as my weight is!
Despite the weight spike, I'm feeling pretty good about thing... Read more
January 1, 2016: Starting Over at 132.5
I'm a full 10 pounds UP from my lowest weight (April 2014). Sigh. Lots of yoyoing in 20 months. And so I begin again, the downward trek. Smarter eating. I've been pretty faithful to working out during this period -- especially cardio, not so muc... Read more

On Again Off Again -- 2015, the Year That Was
Nearly 5 years ago, after a life of fatness, I had had enough and I set about finally losing the extra weight that had plagued me my whole life. I wasn't morbidly obese, but "chubby." I started running and tracking my food, and I lost 30 pounds.... Read more

Wednesday morning 4:00 a.m. I rolled over in bed, and that sickening spinning feeling crashed over me again. I looked at my alarm clock, and the numbers were dancing all over the place. As quickly as I could, I rolled back to my other side, and ... Read more

Losing Weight Is Not Rocket Science
#1 - Eat like a reasonable person. I've been trying to eat within my SP calorie range but going just a tiny bit over all week. Still, I've lost a few pounds. So I'm very pleased. Compared to how I ate during August -- with the occasional in-rang... Read more
I stepped on the scale this morning to a surprising 4.5-pound weight gain. I stepped off and back on again. That can't be right. Hm. Yup, up 4.5 pounds.
Here We Go Again
Despite my frequent declarations that I am really getting serious this time, my weight has crept back up to a weight I swore I would never see again. I am sooooooooooooooo irritated with myself.
I cannot keep eating like this an... Read more
Day of Rest
A lazy Sunday ahead........ starting with some couch time with my dog and some recorded concerts on the DVR (Annie Lennox and Simon & Garfunkel).

Only twice have I achieved the coveted 2000 Monthly Fitness Minutes trophy on Sparkpeople. Shocking, I know.
Lately, I've been putting in A LOT of minutes. I'm running three times a week, biking three times a week, and walking almost every... Read more

Following my training plan, today is a day off from both running and biking. My legs say: THANK YOU!

I've been really dedicated to running an... Read more
