One Bad Meal is Not Gonna Slow Me Down
Today I went to a baseball game with a friend and had a fabulous time. She's someone I haven't seen in a long time and it was great to catch up.
After the game, we went out to dinner at Perkin's and, honestly, I didn't even try to choose a ... Read more
A Great Run and RAGBRAI Photos!
Today was my first day back to normal exercise after the craziness that was biking across Iowa. For me, biking doesn't feel like exercise - it just feels like manual transportation in a fun way. So when I got back on the treadmill this evening, ... Read more
A Week of Biking and Pie
RAGBRAI was amazing. For those who don't know, it's an annual week-long bike ride across Iowa that attracts more than 20,000 people. Its It's basically a huge bike party.
It was a great week and an awesome ride but I am exhausted. And according... Read more
Down 2 pounds, See you in a week
The scale this morning said 192, which is great. But for some reason I just wasn't as excited about the loss as I was in previous weeks. Maybe it's because I'm greatly anticipating the moment I'm out of the 190s (something I haven't been since p... Read more
Good Weeks and Hair Cuts
This week has been fabulous! I've been good about working out, I've been eating within my calorie range (although not as many fruits and vegetables as I'd like) and on a whim last night I decided to cut my hair!
Horray for the App Update
FINALLY, I can blog from my phone on the SP app. It's a feature I've been hoping they would add for a while now and I'm so happy they did.
Yesterday was very full. I started work at 7am, got off at about 4:30pm and then hung out at a coffee sh... Read more
I'm Getting Better at Sticking With Things
I'm starting to notice that the older I get and the more life I live through, the better I am at sticking with things. My tendency to hop from one thing to the next has always been my fatal flaw.
On one hand, it stems from abundant curiosi... Read more
Playing Tourist in Minneapolis
I had the day off today so I decided to play tourist in my city. I'd never been to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts before and since it's a free museum, I figured why not?
It didn't open until 10:00am and since I'm trying to wake up at a ... Read more
After the excitement fades...
Going into my 5th week of actively trying to lose weight, I've lost a lot of the motivation and excitement I felt the first few weeks. My progress has been good - I've lost 6lbs in 5 weeks - but this has stopped becoming a shiny new goal and has... Read more
A Very Happy Fourth of July!
Happy 4th, everyone!
I'm doing alright. At the end of this week, I started to get lazy. I didn't feel like making food so I ended up eating a lot of Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches. Not the best choice but it could have been worse, I gu... Read more
Canoes at Pride
My weekend was so hectic that I never even turned on my computer until 9:30pm on Sunday night. Hence the lack of activity on this website. I wasn't even able to track my food.
I spent the entire weekend at the local Pride Festival leading c... Read more
Of Distractions and Bike Rides
These past few days have been really good and not so good. After getting home from the weekend at my parents place, things were good. But I think I have a little too much time on my hands because on Tuesday I made the mistake of starting to watc... Read more
So for a while now I've been thinking about getting a fitbit or some kind of activity tracker. But I was shocked at the cost of many of them. Aren't these just glorified pedometers? The main addition is being able to track numbers on their apps ... Read more
The End of the Weekend
This weekend went better than I expected.
On Friday, I went for a run and ran a few errands. My mom usually brings home fast food on Friday nights and she asked me what I wanted. I told her to get Taco Bell and I found some relatively heal... Read more
I Had Nothing to Worry About
I was worried about my weigh in this morning because I played around and weighed myself in the evening yesterday and the result wasn't good. But I think that was a mixture of water, clothing, and a trick of the day because when I stepped on the ... Read more
