Changing Faces (PICS)
Wednesday, November 24, 2010      23 comments

I spend so much time obsessively charting my waist line that I kind of forget about my face. I've always thought of myself as being pretty with the excess weight affecting my body but not my face. But looking through old photos I can see that th... Read more
Trigger # 6: Fatigue
Sunday, November 21, 2010      6 comments

I took a nap today--boy, was it wonderful! And when I woke up, I had my dinner. I slept right through my prime snacking time. I think I am more susceptible to binging when I'm tired. My last binge was after my PR exam when I was exhausted ... Read more

I joined the muffin top challenge! Here are my before photos. A little background on the jeans: I bought these Joe's Jean's in December 2006. They are a size 32 (12) in the Provacateur style (which is basically their petite/short style). I love ... Read more
WIN Sodium Blog
Friday, November 19, 2010      5 comments

OMG! I just checked my sodium for the week and saw that it was high on Sunday. I wasn't sure why so I checked my reports. Apparently, a 6 inch turkey sub from Subway has 910 mgs of sodium! I know cold cuts are high sodium but really?! That is in... Read more

1) No eating unplanned foods during the day on campus This has been going very well. While I have supplemented my lunch box with a few purchased snacks (like Baked Lays), I have not been eating free candies or pizza. One day, I had a free ... Read more

Monday, November 15, 2010      4 comments

On Thursday, my sister and I stopped by a frozen yogurt place. They had Yellow Cake Batter flavored frozen yogurt. Generally, I can take or leave frozen yogurt but I just had to try the cake batter flavor. Yellow cake batter is one of my favorit... Read more
I Stepped On The Scale Today...
Friday, November 12, 2010      9 comments

For the first time in 6 days. I lost weight. But I didn't feel ecstatic; or disappointed. I just nodded my head and accepted it. It was what I expected after the commitment I've made and the work I've been doing. But I didn't feel that my mood w... Read more

Yesterday, I wrote about my response to being stared at by men.

Why I'm PROUD of my 15 minute miles
Thursday, November 11, 2010      17 comments

Sometimes it's hard to be the slow poke. As I pant and gasp my way around the track, swifter, lighter runners speed past without even breaking a sweat. My friend Val runs 10 minute miles; my big sister runs 12 minute miles...and there I am far b... Read more
Trigger # 4: The Male Gaze
Wednesday, November 10, 2010      6 comments

I don't know if this counts as a trigger but I feel very uncomfortable when people stare at me, specifically, men. You would think quite the opposite since I'm a confident, outgoing person, with an extensive background in theater and public spea... Read more

Great Run and Meatless Meal!
Tuesday, November 09, 2010      5 comments

I had a great run this morning! I started out running by a man made lake in Golden Gate park which is all concrete. But the concrete was really bumming me (too much impact) so I ran off my usual path and discovered an amazing dirt track just a f... Read more
Trigger # 3: Can there ever be enough?
Monday, November 08, 2010      8 comments

So, I am now in the midst of TOM. Thanks to all my exercise last week though, the symptoms are not nearly as bad as usual. I am mostly feeling a little tired and hungry but I will up the cardio and see if the endorphins help. Today, I'm doing ca... Read more
Trigger # 2: The Battle of Little Big Cheese Puff
Sunday, November 07, 2010      2 comments

Today, my husband and I went grocery shopping at Trader Joes. I saw my favorite Baked Cheese Crunchies (like a reduced fat cheeto) but I didn't get them. Last week, I polished off a bag of those in 24 hours (should take about 5 days using the co... Read more
Avoiding the Winter Blues
Sunday, November 07, 2010      2 comments

Last year, I lost a lot of weight in the Fall but really started to fall off track in the winter. The weather changed on me. I didn't have appropriate gear for running in the rain. I didn't go to the pool as much because I didn't want to be damp... Read more
