Haven't been on here for a while because, well, life. Anyhoo, in January, I started following Dr. Ludwig's plan (Always Hungry http://drdavidludwig.com/). I read some interviews with him and later bought the book. The book really spoke to me ... Read more
How time flies in a bad way
I have been putting off getting back on here for a while...it has been just about a year since I last tracked, and longer than that since I tracked consistently. The expected result has happened - I am approaching my highest weight since 2003.

Biking Tally for 2010
So I'm a device nerd. I have had a version of the Garmin Forerunner since they first came out.
I ... Read more
Not a bad at work lunch!
We haven't been making enough dinner for me to have leftovers for lunch, so I've been grabbing what I can at work. Yesterday it was a can of tuna - not too exciting. I walked 20 minutes to a grocery store today at lunch because it was nice out... Read more
Unexpected benefit of bike commuting
So I bike commute to and from work, rain or shine, about 15 1/2 miles each day. This week is "Bike to Work Week", but unfortunately, the weather has been pretty horrid, and the forecast is for the rain to continue for the rest of the week. No... Read more
Photo of my ride
Ka_Jun suggested in one of the threads that we post a picture of where we ride. A couple of blocks on my cycle commute are unbelievable right now with the cherry blossoms. They have started to fade a bit already, as the other day when I was ri... Read more
Change of heart: The wind is wonderful
So, on Monday I was complaining about how windy the ride was that we did on the weekend.
We've had some weird weather all week, and there was supposed to be a huge windstorm this morning, with 80 km/h winds. Given the description on the ne... Read more
I am in awe
So this weekend I did a metric century on my bike to support a friend who is just starting out biking and who will be doing a two day charity ride in June.
I ride a fair bit - I cycle commute and on the weekends my DH and I often do "long" ... Read more
Struggling this week
OK, so the title should really be "Struggling since our mini break 2 weekends ago". Yep. It has been a challenging two weeks. As usual, exercise is not the problem - it's food. I have been consistently eating over my calorie allowance, and u... Read more
My Empty Fruit Bowl Is Staring Me Down
So when I got serious about this about six weeks ago, I brought a bowl into work, put it on my desk, and kept it full of fruit. This worked well for me, as I have a habit of turning right instead of left when I leave my office - right lies the ... Read more
Thank goodness. I say that because I upped the fitness last week, and it would have been a bit of a hit to not have seen movement. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fanatic and I know very well that it's not ideal or healthy to focus on the number... Read more
This blog was going to be "Wet, Wet, Wet" as that's what I was this morning on my ride into work. I seriously misjudged the weather and was wet on both the outside (didn't wear my shoe covers) and the inside (it was much warmer than I thought).... Read more
Last week wasn't a good week, but hey, it's a new month
So the last couple of weeks I have been pretty much off the wagon in terms of eating. The first week, that's kind of OK as we were on a mini-break, so my focus was on keeping up my exercise and tracking the food (whatever it might be). I actua... Read more
Trying to Listen to My Body
So I didn't make it to swimming this morning. I feel extremely guilty about it but I keep telling myself this is a good thing. Why? I'm tired. Not the 'I don't feel like getting up where are the bon bons?' type of tired, but need to slow dow... Read more

Finally some movement on the scale
Today is two weeks from getting back from Maui and getting back to the routine of tracking and eating better (which for me generally means fewer baked goods and smaller portions).
Last week I was a bit frustrated as I didn't see any movem... Read more
