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

Struggling to Learn

Saturday, July 21, 2012      3 comments

Struggling again. I feel like I keep getting myself stuck... Iíve been really tired, almost unable to get enough sleep. Iím a little depressed because Iíve been having relationship problems with the guy Iíve been dating for almost a year, a... Read more

Frustrated

Wednesday, July 27, 2011      6 comments

I don't know what's wrong but I can't seem to get back in track with either eating right or working out. I haven't run in almost two weeks and I am racking up over 2000 calories per day, most days of the week - and I know because I'm still track... Read more

Fresh Start/Rededication

Sunday, February 27, 2011      4 comments

Lately Iíve been slipping. Iíve gained back some of the pounds I lost and while I know it was due to some minor health issues, itís always hard to see hard-won progress lost. I think what bothers me more is that itís been hard to regain the mo... Read more

A Running Blog (with pics!)

Thursday, September 09, 2010      4 comments

I haven't been blogging much since I got serious about changing my life. I'm not sure why, because normally I like to write and I'm not shy about putting my thoughts and feelings out there. Maybe itís because I've been having such a good time ... Read more

Iím leaving Monday for a 9 day trip Ė 4 days in Wisconsin for work and 5 days at my Momís in Canada for her 75th birthday. Each with its own particular challenges! So I decided Iíd better think about my strategies in advance. I noticed ... Read more
