But A Good Weekend Overall

Monday, May 17, 2010      42 comments

For info about the very "bad" meal that will likely make me eschew unhealthy food for a little while, see the blog I posted a bit ago. I decided to move the good stuff over here! I was a gorgeous weekend. Warm weather and a ton of sunshine!... Read more

"Bad" Food: A Cautionary Tale

Monday, May 17, 2010      43 comments

My blog followers know that I am a big proponent of indulging your cravings once in awhile. I found thin crust pizza that takes the edge off most of my pizza cravings and find myself indulging in healthier versions of my favorites (my own Japane... Read more

Stronger, Leaner, Faster

Friday, May 14, 2010      83 comments

Holy head to wall, Batman! My body was feeling the last two 4-mile runs (I ran 3.5 on Sunday, 4 on Tuesday, 4 on Thursday) last night. I kinda hit the wall when I got home and was in bed before 10. I had to deal with a family issue and then... Read more

Wednesday, May 12, 2010      45 comments

Yep, 40 days until the start of summer: June 21st! I have a goal to be at 185 by then, which means 40 days to drop 10 lbs. I'm on track to meet that goal, but just barely. If I'm not there, I won't sweat it though, because I'm leaps and bo... Read more

Just about a month until the 10K! And my longest distance outside is only 4.5 miles! emoticon Yesterday's ex... Read more

Melrose Run for Women 3.5 Miler

Sunday, May 09, 2010      42 comments

What a great morning! My first women only race and my first non-5K race (3.5 miles). It wasn't a chip-timed race, so I had to rely on my heart rate monitor's stopwatch to determine when I actually started and ended the race, and it was plag... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Weight Loss: Not Just About Looking Good

Friday, May 07, 2010      280 comments

Sometimes we get caught up in the vanity aspect of weight loss. I'm totally guilty of this. Hey, we all want to fit into cute clothes, look good naked, and just generally sport a smokin' hot bod. So today was a fantastic reminder of the most imp... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Delete a "Friend"

Thursday, May 06, 2010      244 comments

I read a blog today where a woman took a beautiful photo of herself in a bright blue sari down from Facebook because a haughty "former fatty" had the audacity to tell her she should be embarrassed of the way she looked and should delete the phot... Read more

Hey Rubbernecking Gym Lady, How ya doing? Guess you're here with me on the dreadmill because of the thunderstorms that just boomed on in as soon as I laced up my running shoes. Sucks, huh? I'd rather be outside too. Pounding pavement is muc... Read more

Vroom! (And Other OT Thoughts)

Tuesday, May 04, 2010      33 comments

So we picked up a little sports utility vehicle yesterday. A Kia Sportage. Vroom vroom! I feel so tall! The brakes went on my old car and we were debating for a couple of w... Read more

Thirst and Hunger

Monday, May 03, 2010      56 comments

On Saturday afternoon there was a water main break from the water source that supplies pretty much all of Greater Boston. Well, I'll never take advantage of a constant source of clean drinking water ever again! Now all of our water must be... Read more

April Recap and May Goals

Friday, April 30, 2010      56 comments

April had its shares of highs and lows for sure. I had to bow out of my planned 5K because I tripped over a piece of pavement on my way to the start line! D'oh! And so I was off-kilter after that and Onederland took its slow time to finally arri... Read more

Brr, Cold All the Freaking Time!

Thursday, April 29, 2010      42 comments

One of the very few cons of weight loss is that I'm cold all the time now. I used to be one of those people who wore short sleeves all the time even in the dead of winter. I rarely felt that I needed gloves. I love cashmere sweaters, but only ow... Read more
