Starting (Again)
Sunday, October 30, 2011      4 comments

I don't blog here much, but when I do, it's because I don't have any other forum to say it in. I recently learned the delights of boxing. I don't want to hit anybody, but I got a heavy bag because I heard it gives a total body workout. ... Read more
Climbing Back in the Saddle

Back in June, when I went to my friend in LA to help him with his dying mother, I fell out of the exercise/eating right saddle. I still haven't had the courage to get back in. My health has suffered as a result. My immune system is below ... Read more

Plateau Hell

Maybe I'm stuck on a number. When I had 2 months till Vegas, I set the goal to loose 25 lbs before my trip. It was ambitious, but I felt confident that I could reach it through a combination of healthy eating and regular exercise. Yesterd... Read more

I noticed yesterday when I was doing my running that it hurts to run in my MBT's. Today, the pain was even worse. I could barely run at all, and wound up only going for about 6 minutes and 10 minutes walking. Walking back to my office w... Read more

Today is a New Day
Thursday, May 28, 2009      1 comments

For the first time this week, I.... I don't want to say I messed up. I just wasn't as perfect as I could have been. I've committed that this is not a diet. I am not exercising just to loose weight. This is the way I choose to eat. I cho... Read more

Spinning IS For Me!
Tuesday, May 05, 2009      2 comments

I went to my very first spin class last night. My friends have been encouraging me to go for close to a year now. I always allowed something to get in the way, even if it was just my self-consciousness. But an intense fight with my fian... Read more
Food as Comfort?
Monday, November 05, 2007      4 comments

It's funny. Often I turn to food for comfort. That's what my mom does, it's what my grandma does. The rest of my family turns to liquor. I love food as a comforter, but lately, as I've been more aware of what I'm eating (although it's more a... Read more
