Inches will have to do...

My first gain this week :( Boo hiss. It's only 1.4 pounds. It's not going to kill me - but it's been a wild ride having never seen that scale go up yet on this journey. But today it did. And it sucks even more because I worked my BUTT off t... Read more
Like a Fish to Water

Back in the pool tonight after four weeks away and it's like I never missed a day! The water felt SO good tonight, my bathing suit was a little looser and I still managed 55 laps in 55 minutes. I'm beyond thrilled. How I have missed that feel... Read more

So it's been a LONG tech week and a huge build-up to last night's opening of "Sunday In The Park With George". But we survived, the show is open - we're still waiting on critical reviews, but we have already been Jeff Recommended (Chicago's ver... Read more
A Trifecta of Awesome

Wow. I've had a good day today. Come to think of it, I've had a pretty darn good couple of weeks. And it's unfathomable to me that I'm managing everything that I am right now. This will be the first time I've survived a CLEAN tech week. No ... Read more

I don't know what it is about fall, but for me it will ALWAYS be associated with getting a new wardrobe. That feeling of fresh, new beginnings - a new pair of shoes, and a pretty little something to wear on the first day that the weather turns.... Read more
Too Busy To Blog!
Saturday, September 04, 2010      6 comments

Hi Everyone! I'm sorry I've been slow on the blog posting lately. I have so many great ideas for things that I want to write about and by the time I look up from what I'm doing it's too late, and I should be in bed, but I need to get some stuf... Read more
Oh, For Shame! or The Life of a Lemming
Thursday, August 26, 2010      11 comments

I admit it. I'm wrong! About a lot of things. But I'm tired of feeling ashamed because of it! OK - hold the phone. Let's back this up a bit so you get an idea of where I'm coming from here. I'm a pretty opinionated ... Read more

As a kid I used to HATE Sunday drives. My parents would always load us in the car after church in our Sunday best and then proceed to take the LONG way home. It was the worst. All we ever wanted to do was get out of those stuffy clothes and enjo... Read more
The Blame
Tuesday, August 17, 2010      17 comments

I'm going to say something here that might be a little controversial, but I know I'm right, so I'm going to say it anyway: I am not 100% responsible for my obesity. Yes, I am the one who snuck cookies into my room as a child, and I am ... Read more
New Scale Blues
Monday, August 16, 2010      10 comments

As a reward for starting my C25K Training, I bought myself a whole set of new measurement items last week. I got a brand new scale (ooh, shiny), a brand new food scale (ooh, sexy) and a brand new tape measure (ooh, slick). I couldn't wait to b... Read more
Hottest Day and FIRST 5K!!!
Thursday, August 12, 2010      13 comments

It is THE HOTTEST DAY EVER in Chicago today. I'm on lock down in my office in the air conditioning. I need to go home soon, but I don't even want to step foot outside right now. But all I can think about is running. To my surprise, I got... Read more
Quite Possibly the BEST DAY EVER!!!

First and foremost, this is a HUGE THANK YOU to all of the wonderful Done Girls who have wished me continued success and who support me endlessly every day! Being Done Girl of the Day is an absolute honour and one of which I am very proud! ... Read more

I woke up early this morning to do W1D2 of C25K. To be honest - it SUCKED. The only thing that keeps me doing this running thing right now is that when I'm not running, I think/feel like I want to run. But while I'm doing it - WHOLE other sto... Read more
Blame It On The Rain...Or Lack Thereof
Tuesday, August 03, 2010      7 comments

Monday nights are my walk-home night. I get in my 2.5 miles before I succumb to the power of The Bachelorette on t.v. Yesterday I was already having trouble with the whole idea of walking home. I was tired and I really didn't want to miss... Read more
Who Wears Short Shorts?

Um, I do! :) I was out for breakfast a few weeks ago with a friend of mine. She's about 30 years my senior, but also a big girl, and we have a fun camaraderie together. She's totally kooky like me and we seem to really get each other. I ... Read more
