Moving Forward ...
After my friend Ali died 2.5 years ago, I went into an emotional eating downward spiral and gained back all the weight I had lost and then some. It's now been just over a month (a month an two days, but who's counting) since my beloved passed aw... Read more
1 Year, 9 Months, and 11 Days.
That's all I got with the love of my life before he passed away last week from a particularly aggressive and ugly form of cancer. I'm in a fog and have no idea how to get out of it, but I know I will somehow, someday. Seriously the smallest thin... Read more
MIA but not really gone ...
Warning: This is a bit depressing, but it gets better at the end.
It's been a long time since I've posted anything on here, and honestly I don't even know where to begin.
Let's start with the major life upheaval in that the love of my... Read more
My Skinny Jeans Are Just Jeans
First off, thanks for all your support on my last post (http://www.sparkpeople.com/my

Stress, News, Motivation, and Stuff
Basically all hell has broken loose on the homefront lately. When I bought my tiny little (by suburban standards) condo back in 2008 I was a single girl. Fast forward and now we've got two adults, a teenager, two cats, and a dog living in a 1440... Read more

It's 2012 All Over Again!
At the end of 2012, I was at my lightest. That was when I bought my size 10 jeans and several size 10 dresses.
However, how I got there was not ideal. I was working all day and then driving ~45 minutes to my friend's deathbed to spend as m... Read more
I posted awhile ago that I'm in this weird place where I've lost some weight, but not a lot and very proportionally so nothing is really too big, but things are a little bit looser in general and overall I just feel a little dumpy and frumpy. So... Read more
3 weeks, 30,000 miles, 3 pounds ... Sort of
The title is a bit fudged, but ...
In just over three weeks, I've flown just under 30,000 miles, and when I came home my first weigh-in was not quite three pounds heavier than when I left.
A day later, that went down two pounds, so I... Read more
A Good Problem To Have
I've lost about 12 pounds now. Which is great. Yay! Go me!
The problem ... and I use that term in the best possible sense of the term ... is that it's all coming off very evenly. Follow me here.
My clothes are not really too big. But... Read more
Woo hoo, look at me go flip a freaking monster truck tire!... Read more
Cardio Circuit Madness! And Tire Flipping!
Today was the kind of boot camp class I LOOOOOOOVE!
Being kind of competitive but super slow is not a good combination because even though everyone is super supportive and amazing, I can't help but constantly notice the fact that I'm dead ... Read more
The Big Lap
My boot camp is in a warehouse amidst a bunch of other warehouses, and we have our usual routes to run. One such route is down the line of warehouses, through the parking lot, around the next building over, and back.
But, see, I'm slow. Tu... Read more
I weigh in on Sundays. I was EXPECTING to lose my 10th pound this Sunday. I woke up, felt good, hopped on the scale, and ... it was exactly the same as the week before.
%$# YOU, SCALE.
But I brushed it off. Went for a 4.5 mile run. C... Read more
