Fitness Goal? Check!
So, I was really hung up on this fitness goal thing. But after thinking it over (and reading about how having a goal improves your performance SO MUCH), I figured I had to come up with something. Livingproof's comment really helped: what did I l... Read more
Fitness Goal... Huh?
So, my husband is deployed right now, and we're both trying to get ourselves back in shape by the time he comes back to the US (in June). It's really nice to hold each other accountable (really!) and to cheer our way through it.
The thing i... Read more
Running Ragged, but Still Committed
Happy Earth Day everyone!
Whew, am I tired. I am definitely not getting the amount of sleep I need right now. I'm averaging around 6 hours a night, but my body clearly wants more...For instance, this morning I woke up at 5:40 (my alarm goes... Read more
Tsk tsk, ladybug.
Well, I've been bad. I don't think I've been onto SP in almost 3 weeks :( I could easily make excuses, with defending my dissertation proposal, hosting my parents for Easter (when they met my boyfriend), and other stuff. But re... Read more
Happy April Fools Day!
I have to say, I've never been pranked (personally) on April Fool's Day. Perhaps that's why I get such a kick out of the whole premise! I get massively entertained by all the funny and clever tricks people come up with.
I've got to say, Goo... Read more
My friend and I were discussing Spark People today, as we're both using it to track food and exercise. Both of us have pretty good figures, but are trying to be healthier and lose a few stubborn pounds.
We were remarking on how helpful SP ... Read more
What a long day! I was at school today for almost 14 hours. Yikes. But I did manage to squeeze a quick, high intensity workout in between two classes. I wasn't sure I could get to the gym, work out, shower and get to class all in an hour and 20 ... Read more
Gray, rainy Thursday
Ugh. It is so nasty out today--gray, cold, rainy Thursday. For some reason, I think of Thursdays as rainy days, so it kinda fits. But man, I did NOT want to get out of bed this morning!
Last night I went to the grocery store (my supplies we... Read more
Back at it
I can't believe it's been a week since I last logged into SP. Bummer.
I travelled down to Georgia this past weekend to visit my boyfriend. It was so glorious out there! It's definitely spring in the South...Am still waiting for it up here i... Read more
Good morning! Aaaaah, Wednesday. I love Wednesdays! First of all, my schedule is wide open on Wednesday--no class, no teaching, no seminars! So I can really focus on my research and dissertation, with few distractions.
Wednesday is also gre... Read more
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Top o' the mornin' to ya!! I hope everyone's having a lovely St. Patrick's Day.
I just got back to Philadelphia (where I live) from being home in NH all weekend. It's SO HARD to eat smartly when I go home. My mom just wants to spoil my sist... Read more
Happy Friday the 13th!
Today is going to be a long day, as I'm at school til 9pm, then hop on a plane to head home (to NH!) this evening. But I'm super duper excited to go home for a few days. My sister is coming home as well, so it will be fabulous having the whole f... Read more
In undergrad, "Thirsty Thursday" was the unofficial start of a weekend of boozing. There are a few bars around campus which would have drink specials on Thursday nights, and since many students (especially after freshman year) don't have classes... Read more
I'm so surprised that it's Wednesday already! Sometimes the weeks just fly by, which is both good and bad...Good because it means I'm staying busy, but bad because I almost always haven't gotten everything done that I mean to!!
I'm definite... Read more
So I've been battling a sore throat in the morning for the past 2 days. But when I woke up this morning, OUCH. I stopped at the store this morning and bought a huge bottle of OJ, guzzled that (yeah lots of calories, but I'm counting it for 2 ser... Read more
