9 Months Later...
...And I'm up 20 lbs. Granted, I've been doing strangely well at losing weight slowly and steadily, but un... Read more
So today, after finishing logging my meals and double checking because I didn't believe what I saw considering that lunch was a mini pizza, and dinner was a cheese and miracle whip sammich, I found out that I was within my target range for fats ... Read more
The nature of the beast...
or, taming my brain.
I notice, reading over my blog entries here, I seem to be much more upbeat and cheery than I ever feel in my day-to-day. Don't get me wrong, I know how depression manifests in myself, and I'm a long way from that, but i... Read more
Last year, a pair of mating bald eagles nested about 4 miles from my apartment, right next to the river yet in an area still considered to be the "city." This year, they're back mama laid an egg again! The local aviary set a preserve perimeter a... Read more
Today I learned...
My hair holds 1.7 lbs of water when wet.
Seriously. Who'd have thunk it.
otherwise, not much to report. Spent most of the day in front of my computer sorting my comic book collection, but I'll be making up for the sedentary time watch... Read more
The new adventure.
As Renata144 reminded me in yesterday's blog, Today, I start a new adventure. I've been a fitbit user before. Today, I got my long-anticipated replacement. Picked it up right after work, and even though it was two degrees above freezing and rain... Read more
Bank holiday. Right. I forgot...
The first time is when I went to the post office to get my fitbit, which has been sitting there in a box all lonely and unattainable since Friday. At least I got to hurt my ankle slipping on the icy sidewalks!
But then, after I ... Read more
Next time I'm kicking myself for eating too much or too little of something, I need to take a step back and instead of feeling like I made a mistake looking at the single day report, remember to go to the next page of the nutrient feedback repor... Read more
Work related guilt.
Again, it seems, I'm cursed by a combination of dropping blood sugar and being surrounded by bagels. If I have time to make a healthy option, i probably just wasted the little spare time I would have to get it eaten. We don't get meal breaks, ev... Read more
And ever onward.
New weapon to add to my arsenal: Every time I edit the podcast, I end up sitting by bored for large chunks of time while audio files are importing to the editor, converting from the working copy to mp3, compressing for the server... etc. I gener... Read more
Trying isn't good enough.
Pittsburgh winters remind me how much I miss the sun, and the outdoors, but with the slush and snow and bitter cold, it's hard enough to walk two blocks to work. Literally. The residential blocks are filled with people who don't believe in snow ... Read more
So little time...
I've had very little time to spend here, and have instead been working with food/exercise I know works. I've been able to maintain my weight, which is at least a start. I've been trying to make sure I'm eating the less calorie-tastic foods at wo... Read more
I've been doing EVERYTHING right. I've been controling portions, limiting condiments, swapping carbs for fruits and veggies, and staying active. What I don't get, then, is how I'm STILL gaining weight. I started taking a multi vitamin, and if th... Read more
I've been feeling a lot more energetic lately, and getting more exercise in without feeling like I'm stressing to fit it in. A trick that works quite well for me: I buy my non-perishables in a monthly shopping trip, and walk to the store every t... Read more
One month later
...and no gains or losses. But then again, I've been working 12+ hours a lot of days (It's not a money thing, I can't say no to family in need.) and I know my sleep has been all over the place. But the weather is finally getting to the nice rang... Read more
