I just logged onto Sparkpeople for the first time in over a year! Oops. I guess life just got in the way of keeping on track. That's okay, because I've lost a couple of pounds since I last logged in! I still haven't met my goal of 150, but if I ... Read more
Monday was the last warm day we are going to have for the next 4-5 months. I rushed home from work so I could get in a quick run before the sun went down.
I made it a half mile before I came across a woman walking a German shepherd on a lea... Read more
Well, I did it! I ran a half marathon on my birthday, which was on October 26. I turned 26 years old. I feel pretty great about it! It took me about 2.5 hours to finish. I'm not a fast runner, but I still feel great about finishing. It was a bea... Read more
Busy busy busy! The third week of summer camp is beginning tomorrow already. I'm still hanging around 170 but I can run 7 miles now! I started tracking my food again on Friday and I have no excuses not to at this point. I have the SP tracking ap... Read more
Hitting the Reset Button
Well, it's the middle of May in 2013, and I really haven't lost any weight! The funny thing is I feel that I'm handling this well. I'm not discouraged or depressed about it. In fact, I think I'm pretty satisfied with my progress and appearance. ... Read more
For those of you who don't know--whoever out there reads this--I live in the Boston area. I live a good 4 miles outside the city in a smaller suburban city. None of my friends were directly affected by Monday's event; however, it's had me thinki... Read more
After a good 3 months of a plateau, the scale finally budged ever-so-slightly down to 169.6. I actually smiled as I weighed myself yesterday. It was the time that I least expected to hit under 170--I was actually expecting to have gained a pound... Read more
I ran five miles today. Five!!! I've never done that in my entire life. I am pretty wiped out now, but I was feeling good during the run. I planned my route this morning while the BF was still fast asleep, and started out very slow and steady. A... Read more
I'm back to feeling 100%! I worked until 1:30, met up with a friend for a long late lunch, walked home (25 minutes) and then ran four miles!!! It's been a couple weeks since I did a 4 mile loop, but it felt really nice to be able to run outside ... Read more
Yes, I'm still at my original goal weight! It's about time to start getting to work on my new goal, though. It's March now and soon, the weather will get warmer, the days will be longer, and I'll have more daylight and sunshine to run in! I don'... Read more
We've had some wacky weather the past couple of weeks. Temperatures dropped down pretty close to 0 last week, and this week we had a day that felt like spring. Now it's back down to the 20's/30's. All this flip-flopping does NOT make me want to ... Read more
Before starting my new job, I would weigh myself almost every morning. I was really stuck in a routine of waking up, relaxing for a few minutes, and then weighing myself. No wonder the number on the scale rarely changed!
I am too busy in th... Read more
My first week at my new job is over--and I got a lot of information. Now I am going into super work mode. I want to do the best I can!
As for my weight, I managed to get back down to 172. My body seems more acclimated to waking up early alr... Read more
First Day! AKA My Poor Body
My first day went very well! I am going to be an extremely busy lady in the next 6 months, but I'm really excited to finally feel like I am beginning a career.
My body, however, is freaking out. I have gotten so used to waking up at 9 a.m. ... Read more
Got on the scale this morning. The past few days it's read 173!!! Oopsies! I'm not too upset about it though. My body does this every once in a while. It resists!! ALSO, I've been on vacation the past two weeks and while I've kept up with my ru... Read more
