Insanity Day 1: Fit Test
Today was our first day of Insanity and it did not disappoint. If this was just the fit test, I'm a little frightened by what the future holds, haha. In any case, here are my results; you have to do as many of each exercise you can in one minute... Read more
"Insanity laughs, under pressure we're cracking."
Couldn't resist the rock n' roll quote--we have ordered Insanity! It is coming in the mail by March 1! I'm so excited. My husband and I were watching the infomercial and out of the... Read more
What have I become?
There's a cycle in place but I can't seem to break it. Being aware of the cycle is only a teeny tiny portion of the battle and I have no clue what the next step is. Every time I get very busy--with finals, journal, working over the summer and no... Read more

Casa de los Vegetarianos
I'm concerned that Jeremy and I are both eating too much animal protein. With that in mind, I have launched an anti-meat household campaign. Which is to say, I am now preparing only non-meat meals at home. Dairy is okay; I might make some except... Read more
WIN Blog # 4: I love my sense of fashion
Most days I just wear yoga pants and a work out tee. But when I feel like looking my best, I can throw together a great outfit. I have a strong sense of style honed from spending my formative years with my nose planted deep in Vogue, Elle, W, et... Read more
WIN Blog # 3: I love my LIPS

WIN Blog # 2: I love my intelligence
Haha, this is starting to sound like bragging. WIN made me do it!

WIN Blog # 1: I love my personality
The WIN challenge is write about things we love about ourselves. I love my outgoing personality! In my humble opinion, I'm friendly, funny and a whole hell of a lot of fun to be around.

November Recap and December Goals
Here were my November goals:
1) No eating unplanned foods during the day on campus
2) Cardio min 5x... Read more
I can't help but be disgusted by myself today. I didn't work out yesterday or today; I ate a ton of food and drank a million calories. And rather than bouncing back, I'm wallowing today, beating myself up, doing things I would NEVER advise a Spa... Read more
A GAIN? Why? Help!
I seem to have put on over a pound this week.
Nutrition: On point. I was 200 calories over on Sunday night--since then, I've been in range every day. I weigh all my food on a food scale so the likelihood that I am underestimating my calorie... Read more
Changing Faces (PICS)
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
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
