Disappointed in Myself

Sunday, January 20, 2013      3 comments

This week, not so great in terms of meeting goals. I had planned to go out on my birthday and not worry about calories, but unfortunately one day turned into 4. It was a very celebratory week, some of my dear friends had birthdays too and ... Read more

Quiet Weekend

Sunday, January 13, 2013      3 comments

After the past week, it was good to have a quiet weekend. Other than going to my first painting class -- which was very interesting although we didn't touch paintbrush to canvas yet -- I pretty much rested. I think I was emotionally exhausted a... Read more

Tracking Stress

I KNOW these blogs are pretty boring. Sorry to anyone who is reading! But I made a commitment to keep track of my stress and how it affected my eating and exercise habits and now I am torturing mySparkfriends by keeping it! So, to catch ... Read more

Eight Day Streak and Hot Yoga

Thursday, January 10, 2013      0 comments

I am on an eight day streak and of eating less than 1550 calories per day and it feels great! I also went to a hot yoga class and it was really challenging. The heat really loosens up the muscles and it feels good to sweat it out. I... Read more

Today was better than yesterday...

Tuesday, January 08, 2013      1 comments

Today, thankfully, was better than yesterday. I kept to my plan to work out this morning at the gym and thought about what I needed to do to resolve work problems (see yesterday). And then I went into work and had a talk with my boss, ask... Read more

Lots of Stress

Monday, January 07, 2013      3 comments

So, today sucked. I was really angry at work when I got my annual review and it was not what I expected and hoped for. I had a major project last year for which I was promised top reviews and bonus if I performed well. Which I did, by all obje... Read more

Stress

Sunday, January 06, 2013      6 comments

Today was tough, emotionally. Recent breakup with SO, and a day we would have spent together doing fun and familiar things. I knew it would be difficult so I prepared. Monitoring stress and trying to be proactive, as I promised myselfÖ ... Read more

January Goals

Saturday, January 05, 2013      4 comments

I really need a kick start so I decided to set some basic goals for this first month of the year. They are pretty minimal, since I think that's what I need right now, what with slower than expected recovery from knee surgery, a lousy cold and ... Read more

Holiday Update: Back On Track Again!

Thursday, December 27, 2012      6 comments

Well, I can't say I've been very successful in consuming fewer calories over the past months, or losing weight either. Actually gained 3 lbs but I hate, hate, HATE to move the tracker. Isn't that silly? It is what it is, so I may as well admi... Read more

Just the Basics

Wednesday, November 07, 2012      3 comments

For a long time, I was in the business of setting myself a lot of goals which were wonderful and idealistic, but I was never able to fully achieve. I had a whole lot of things on my list like creating art and getting a masters degree that I tho... Read more

Knee Surgery and Recovery

Saturday, September 08, 2012      4 comments

A week and a half ago, I had arthroscopic surgery on my right knee to repair a torn medial meniscus. Good news: the doc didnít find any arthritis, which is great news since it is pretty rampant in my family. The bad news: it hurt! For some cr... Read more

Ten Tough Days

Saturday, August 11, 2012      2 comments

I just got back from a week and a half on the road for work. It was harder than I thought it would be and between working really long hours and going out at night with colleagues, I didnít meet my goals. I only managed to work out once and I w... Read more

Bad News

Tuesday, July 31, 2012      5 comments

I went to the doctor yesterday and he thinks I have a torn meniscus. Basically, torn cartilage in my knee and I probably need arthroscopic surgery. I know when I did it. I ran a 10 mile race in April and got my best time in 10 years. I di... Read more

Getting Back on Track

Sunday, July 29, 2012      0 comments

Today, I got a new bike! This will be a great way to make sure I get my cardio, since whatever is wrong with my knee is keeping me from running, which has been not just exercise but a great stress reliever as well. Looking forward to getting out... Read more

Wild Undiscipline and a Good Start

Tuesday, July 24, 2012      2 comments

Since I posted my last blog about learning from my struggles, I have been wildly inconsistent and undisciplined. I've eaten too much and had too many drinks and not exercised at all. But at the same time, I feel like Iíve moved forward. ... Read more
