Sunday, February 20, 2011      7 comments

Rebooting Day One
Tuesday, February 08, 2011      1 comments

Day one of my so-called “reboot”…I spent the day struggling to ignore the chocolate that is strategically located in every possible location imaginable, even the most obscure. Luckily Valentine’s Day is only a week away, and all temptation will... Read more

169: A Tale
Saturday, June 19, 2010      12 comments

In the past I've been a bit of a klutz... There was the time, 2 days into a 6 week backpacking trip, I tripped on a flight of stairs in a quaint hotel in France, and did some serious damage to an ankle - the fact that I had a 40 pound pack str... Read more
Donuts...Stop Staring at Me!
Friday, March 05, 2010      4 comments

I love junk food, carbs, etc. Put a glaze or icing on something, and I will devour it in seconds. Which is why I don't bring these foods in to my home. That is also why I'm thrilled *sarcasm* by the plate of donuts, cinnamon buns, desser... Read more

Saturday, January 30, 2010      5 comments

I often get asked how I lost weight initially. Generally, people hope for an easy answer - e.g."I sat on the couch for 10 hours a day, loaded up on carbs, and the weight literally drained away..." It wasn't that simple...or enjoyable. The o... Read more
It Amazes Me...
Saturday, January 23, 2010      1 comments

After 2 years of "healthy living", it amazes me how difficult it still is. I definitely see the benefits of healthy living, eating right, working out, etc - but why is it so darn difficult? Why do I feel hardwired to be unhealthy? Even after... Read more
