I may never completely free myself from the habit of overeating. The truth is, sometimes I just DON'T CARE about the consequences. My priorities shift depending on my mood and the events of the day. While one day it may seem that looking hot in ... Read more

Today I ran for an hour! It has been a long road back to running, but I am finally doing it. I won't lie, it was tough. A lot of the run was uphill, but I just kept going even if I had to slow down at some points and had to force my mind t... Read more

The last few times I have gone running I have gotten a bad pain in my knee and could not go on after 25 minutes. Today I decided that I would run 45 minutes no matter how slowly I would have to go. Guess what? I was able to run for 50 minut... Read more

The last three (ahem!) or four days I haven't been tracking and have sneaked dessert and alcohol back into my diet- this tends to happen to me fairly regularly- two steps forward, one step back. I am aware of this and tracking again today. Just... Read more

Well, my period is finally over and as predicted, my body feels and looks much better than it did last week. I am also much less hungry now, so eating smaller portions and healthier things is easier than last week when I wanted to devour everyth... Read more

This has been a tough week of tracking, hunger, frustration and monthly visit from that wicked witch of the South! I must say that I am starting to feel more confident that I can do this. I had a cheat day (yes, I allow myself to eat whatever on... Read more

I will admit it: I am a wannabe. I consistently browse the pages of the folks in the 'Fitness Achievement' section of Sparkpeople. They seem so determined, so unstoppable, almost superhuman. I can't imagine creating the kind of change some of th... Read more

I realize that I am still at the very beginning of my journey to reconditioning my eating habits, getting back to regular workouts and losing a few pounds. The first days are always the hardest. I just want to make a note that I am already fee... Read more

I have known for a few months now that I have gained weight and my clothes have begun to fit differently- my pants have especially become more snug. What I did not notice until this past week is that the main culprit is not my stomach (although ... Read more

Well, it is not mystery to me how I gained this weight. I have not been carefully about what I am eating and have not been working out as hard as usual. This semester has been truly stressful. Never before in my life have I had to teach 4 c... Read more

I am tapering in the next few weeks. I will still be following the same lifting routine, but cutting back on my miles during the week. So I will run 30-40 minutes instead of 1 hr- 2 hrs. I have a friend's wedding coming up June 7th- so that... Read more
