How time flies in a bad way

Wednesday, December 26, 2012      5 comments

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. ... Read more

Biking Tally for 2010

Monday, January 03, 2011      6 comments

So I'm a device nerd. I have had a version of the Garmin Forerunner since they first came out. emoticon I ... Read more

Not a bad at work lunch!

Thursday, October 21, 2010      6 comments

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

Tuesday, June 01, 2010      6 comments

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

Monday, April 19, 2010      10 comments

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

Thursday, April 08, 2010      5 comments

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

Monday, April 05, 2010      5 comments

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

Thursday, March 25, 2010      3 comments

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

Thursday, March 11, 2010      7 comments

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

Downward movement

Tuesday, March 09, 2010      3 comments

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

Nature endures

Thursday, March 04, 2010      4 comments

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

Monday, March 01, 2010      3 comments

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

Wednesday, February 10, 2010      4 comments

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

Monday, February 01, 2010      4 comments

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

Back from Maui

Monday, January 18, 2010      2 comments

OK, so I'm back from Maui...Diversion here, oh, what an absolutely beautiful place! If I were American I would move there in a ~minute~! Anyway, as expected, the week was a bit of a food bonzo...lots of fresh food but also chips, lots of w... Read more
