Over the summer I somehow developed a toe infection on my left big toe. As a result I basically had to stop running because of the pain; I biked a lot more over the summer than I ran that's for sure! The nail was not ingrown; it seemed like the ... Read more
Okay...'fessing up time. Back in April at a routine doctor's appointment, I brought up a topic that I'd been on the fence about bringing up; the fact that both my parents but particularly my mom kept bringing up anorexia and bulimia.

And so it continues...
Not quite, but pretty close to every day, one or both of my parents will make some comment about my eating/ weight/ appearance. It's becoming "normal" Stuff like "You need to eat more" "You're a stick" "I'm concerned". I try not to let it get to... Read more
Slightly worried (part 2 of blog entry Slightly Nervous)
Ok so maybe joining the gym was a bad idea. I go more or less every day for approximately 2 hours give or take. But it's pushing me down to a place i didn't want to go but now that I am going, it feels good.
My eating habits have shot WAY d... Read more
What do I pack into a gym bag?
My dad and I officially joined the gym today. With the membership we got a free gym bag, water bottle and coupons for a free facial among a couple other things.
To make the full use of it what do I need to put into the bag? The things I thi... Read more
Set a new personal record :)
For the first time ever I am at 32,037 steps for the day so far and it is not quite 4:30 pm.
I'm amazed at myself. Then again, when you get up at 5 am and have the house to yourself (or at least the kitchen/dining room/living room area) you... Read more
I'm a little apprehensive about the last 2 pounds I have to lose. I lost 7 pounds fairly quickly, all in a little over 2 weeks.
But I know myself. I am the type of person whose happiness depends on weight. Therefore, what's going to happen ... Read more
I am a person who is ALWAYS cold. One of the first things I do in the morning is put a sweater on. I LIVE in sweaters.
I take it off for my workout but within a 1/2 hour post-workout it's back on. Even when wearing it though, I can still ... Read more
I screwed up majorly....
And gained back the 3lbs I'd lost. In like 2 weeks.
Thankfully the holidays are almost at an end, and normal eating starts again, NOW! I've kept up my workouts, but they obviously have not been helping.
I need to get back to running. T... Read more
People who don't understand
People, sometimes no matter how hard you try to get them to understand, just don't. In this particular instance I'm talking about family.
When we were little my parents started the tradition of putting a box of Smarties in my Christmas sto... Read more
"Is there anything wrong?"
Yesterday, 2pm rolled around and I was just getting out of the car. My dad was dropping me off at choir practice. For a 1/2 hour we all sat around and talked, still catching up from before the summer break. Once we got started, the director remi... Read more
How I do it
Recently when I told a friend I haven't seen in a while that I'd found out at a doctor's appointment in late August that I'd lost 6 pounds, another person overheard and walking over, asked me how I'd done it. So here's my list (in no particular ... Read more
Any advice/ thoughts to give?
A few months ago I had an appointment with a foot doctor. On and off for several years I've had what, my mom, my family doctor and I thought was a toe fungus. At this appointment the doctor clipped a small piece of nail off the big toe of my rig... Read more
My water streak is currently at 248 days. It will be 249 today. Should I bother continuing this streak you think? Or is it so ingrained that I don't need to anymore?
Some days getting 8 glasses a day is very tough. Those are the days where... Read more
One thing out of many that's been bugging me lately.
On Friday, I went to my riding lesson. It was approx. 26 degrees Celsius-hot but not too bad. It was a pretty good lesson. Towards the end however, my instructor said she was happy I'd managed to ride the entire lesson.
I replied saying tha... Read more
