Let's start by saying that I have generally been against things like Nutrisystem because I always felt like it didn't teach you anything. Sure, eat their food and follow the plan exactly and you're likely to lose weight, but then what? You'll be... Read more
Oh hey, strangers! Sup?
The day of reckoning has come. I'm at my highest weight in a long time. I'm unhappy about it. And I'm ready to do something about it.
How did I get here? I let some old habits come crawling back into my life. ... Read more
How many times have I done this? The mea culpa blog entry. I've gained weight, but this time I mean it! I'm going to exercise 97 times per week and only eat kale and tofu! And I do. For like 2 weeks. And then things go back to normal.
This... Read more
I haven't run all winter. At least not outside, or more than about a mile and a half. I bought a treadmill but it turns out I don't like running on it so the only running I've done is circles around the boot camp warehouse. But spring is about t... Read more
I have talked before about my PCOS ( www.webmd.com/women/tc/p olycystic-ovary-syndrome-p cos-topic-overview ) but one of the wonderful things about it is that I don't have regular periods. In fact, I haven't had one in about ... Read more
This morning it was about 14 degrees Fahrenheit when boot camp started with some insane wind chill making it feel like minus 298340982343 (give or take). Tom says, "Well, today was supposed to be a long run, but ... even I'm not that crazy. So i... Read more
I'm feeling pretty good. My clothes are fitting better. A couple of people have commented that I look like I'm losing weight. I feel healthier, stronger, more active, on track.
By my scale at home, I've lost 8 pounds. Then I went to the do... Read more
Oh yeah, that's multiple successes.
1. I'm wearing my Limited size 12 skinny jeans for the first time in, I dunno, a year?!
2. I signed up for a two week trial of boxing and kickboxing - the kind where you actually get to hit and kic... Read more
The good news is I've lost 8 pounds.
The bad news is that's only about half of what I gained in the last 6 months or so.
I'm starting off 2016 in the right direction. I go on vacation (bathing suits and all. ugh!) in three weeks. I'm... Read more
One of my boot camp instructors has been sharing her 7-day detox plan. I've never done such a thing before and honestly I'm a bit skeptical about the whole idea, but when she posted a picture of the food for the week I realized it looked awfully... Read more
1. I haven't posted anything since July. Wow.
2. My last several posts have been f@#$1ing depressing.
3. This one might not be a whole lot better, but I am on a mission this time.
So, remember the last few posts (probably not b... Read more
Despite my best intentions, I've let the 10 pounds I lost creep back on. I have lots of excuses, and some of them might even be moderately valid, but the bottom line is they (both the excuses and the pounds) need to go bu-bye. And stay gone.

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
