June 15: Weight Surprises

Monday, June 15, 2015      5 comments

I haven't been super dedicated or super consistent lately. I'm having a hard time keeping my calories in range. But hey at least I am tracking. That's something. At least I know how much I'm eating. I'm exercising a lot. Biking, walking, s... Read more

June 14: Biking Plus Five

Sunday, June 14, 2015      6 comments

My biking "coach" -- really, a friend who is a serious biker -- said if I want to bike a century ride this fall, the way to build up to that is adding 5 miles to my long ride each week. So yesterday was my 30-mile ride, up from my 23-mile ride ... Read more

I had a bad day.
watch?v=JlENFkf6upw Without going into too much gory detail, things got really ugly 2 days ago, pretty much right after my last blog. We've had some underlying stress for sever... Read more

June 10/11: The Lessons of Overeating

Thursday, June 11, 2015      10 comments

Yesterday I went out for breakfast at Perkins. My meal included a muffin, which I took to go. (Can you imagine eating an omelet PLUS potatoes/fruit PLUS a muffin???) I ate the omelet (minus hollandaise!) and fruit and saved the muffin for later... Read more

June 8/9: I'm a Biking Fiend

Tuesday, June 09, 2015      6 comments

Forgot to blog again last night... did I mention I'm trying to blog every day during the month of June? Trying! Anyhoo... I biked to work today. 7.5 miles one way. And home again. 15.72 miles total. And it was 95 degrees today. I loooo... Read more

June 7: Inactive Family Blues

Sunday, June 07, 2015      9 comments

Today.... I will admit it..... I shed some tears. I asked my family (husband and two teenaged boys) if they wanted to go for a bike ride. No. How about a hike? No. My husband shot back with: "It's incredibly humid today. I don't want to do... Read more

June 5/6: The Joys of Summer

Saturday, June 06, 2015      7 comments

It occurred to me this morning that I forgot to blog yesterday. As with all the other goals I set for June..... I made it 4-5 days and started slipping. It's time to hoist up my britches and get back on track. Mixed metaphors -- it's my thang! ... Read more

June 4: Thinking of Dad

Thursday, June 04, 2015      7 comments

Four years ago today, my dad passed away. It was completely unexpected -- a complete shock. He died from a heart attack at 69 years old with no known history of heart disease. He was active, fit, and strong. And he meant the world to me. So... Read more

June 3: A Sugar Tale

Wednesday, June 03, 2015      4 comments

The food challenge today for Streaking Into Summer was to count up all added sugar. I ate pretty decently today. The only sugary food I had was a small piece of cake with lunch. Still, I ended up with 50 grams of sugar! I wish foods that a... Read more

June 2: I'm a Hungry Girl

Tuesday, June 02, 2015      7 comments

Today's lesson, boys and girls, is that when you have been eating pretty much whatever you want (that is to say, a lot), and then you attempt to eat like a thin person, your tummy will cry out: THAT WASN'T ENOUGH! I WANT MORE! I NEED MORE! ... Read more

June 1: Restarting the OCD

Monday, June 01, 2015      8 comments

Howdy friends! 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

Falling Down

Thursday, April 09, 2015      7 comments

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
