Day 1 -- February 15th, 2016
So here it is. Day 1 of 60 for InsanityMax30. Day 1 of 100 for 10k steps/no fanfiction/Paleo challenges. T-169 until I turn 40. Wow--that's a lot, huh? I plan to blog as much as I can (every day?) to track my exercise & eating on my way to reac... Read more
Day 1 (Again)
This is Day #1 of Paleo/Whole30 challenge, part 2. The food cravings are back, which is unfortunate, as last Thursday (day 10), I felt I had turned the corner on cravings foods that aren't good for me. Today's craving: a bagel. Fortunately, I al... Read more
Starting Paleo Again on 10/15
This past weekend, I made the choice to fall off the Paleo bandwagon. I take full responsibility for the fact that I fought a battle with myself over eating the ice cream on Saturday (10/13) and allowed my cravings to overpower my will. Today, I... Read more
Update from Day 11
Here I am, almost two weeks in, still going strong on Paleo. The sugar cravings appear to have subsided. I'm still having difficulty eating enough, especially since I've started exercising again and even doing some intense workouts besides (e.g.... Read more
It's Day 9 of the October Paleo Challenge and I'm still going. More importantly, the cravings have begun to subside. Someone came around with chocolate bars today. I walked by mac & cheese in the work cafeteria, right after I exercised (Mike Don... Read more
Week 1 Weigh-In (aka Water Weight)
Drive-by blog with results of 1 week of Paleo/modified Whole30.
10/1 Weight: 166.3
10/8 Weight: 160.5
Loss of 5.8lbs, of which I'm sure 5 is water weight. I was seriously bloated at the end of last month.... Read more
I'm an hour into my inaugaral 2-hour teeth whitening plan from my dentist. The whitening gel has a rather putrid taste and I'm not allowed to drink anything (not even water) during these 2 hours! I'll need to wear the tray daily for the next 3 w... Read more
The first weekend on a Paleo Challenge is generally the hardest for me. My day/time isn't structured, I'm running errands all day that put me face-to-face with all kind of cravings, and my body has hit the energy wall. A bean burrito sounds SOOO... Read more
Crazy Exercise DVD
Have you ever completed a workout and asked yourself "why did you put yourself through that?" That was me this morning after the RushFit Full Body Strength and Conditioning DVD. Seriously, it's Crossfit on DVD.
Round 1: 5 min AMRAP 10 air s... Read more
Random Craving today
It's Day 4, which is typically the worst day of cravings when eating the Paleo way. It was also a really busy/stressful day (of a busy/stressful week) where I didn't eat lunch. The day could've ended badly; cheese enchiladas, tortilla chips, and... Read more
The Cravings List
It's Day 3 of Paleo/modified Whole30. Previous experience (i.e. Paleo challenges) indicates that cravings will hit hard today. And right on schedule, there they are. I'm trying a new tactic, though; instead of being annoyed that I have cravings,... Read more
I broke a sports bra!
Today is my second day of Paleo/Whole30 and the first day of exercise for the month of October. Now that I'm exercising consistently, I'm realizing that I no longer have enough "good" sports bras. If I don't have time to do laundry or wash out m... Read more
Because I'm going to need lots of cheering to get through this...
I'm sharing this with everyone. Starting October 1, I will be doing Whole30...though I'll be honest: there will be post workout smoothies after the 90 minute boot camp craziness I do on weekends. So maybe it's not truly Whole30, but I will be do... Read more
Blogging for Points
So my title says it all. Actually, it's more like blogging to fulfill the Day 1 Challenge.
There's not much to say. I did Paleo for several days, June 4-8th, and lost about 4lbs. This past weekend, I went off Paleo--hate some rice and ice c... Read more

First Blog in Forever...going back on Paleo
It's been about three months since I last wrote in a blog. In the interim, I went an entire month (April) without exercise, which hasn't happened in the last 4-5 years! I also ate up a storm, especially since I've discovered Oreo Sonic Blasts, ... Read more
