I Blew it - but I'm RIGHT BACK
Normally, the pattern starts small and snowballs. I am at a party, for example. I have a cooler full of my own, healthy, balanced, pre-portioned, pre-calorie-counted food. I see some chips and guacamole. "I wish I could eat that," I think. ... Read more
Eight Weeks til Cape Cod
I am at 154.6 today. I realized that all these weekend meals at restaurants have really put my sodium at a much-too-high level, so I'm honestly relieved that my weight isn't even higher due to water retention!
We didn't end up going biking... Read more
My weight is back up to 155.0 today. I just finished guestimating my calories from last night and ended up with about 2,700. Ugh.
At least I had fun and was very active......and today we're biking the Minuteman Trail! Twelve miles!... Read more
Yesterday I went to the gym and did 45 minutes of chest, back, abs, and stretching, and then 45 minutes on the elliptical. Then we walked to and from a restaurant for dinner...over an hour in all. I had almost 2,000 calories yesterday, but was... Read more
Four More Hours 'til Three-Day Weekend!
Heehee. Yes, here I am blogging from school again!
Jess could not believe I walked on the treadmill for a whole hour yesterday. I was on an incline of about 3-6, and a speed of 4.0-4.4 mph, so I did get my heart rate up. I also did stren... Read more
Dragging Day at Work
So I've been in this mood lately, like all I want to do is play. I want to be at cool bars and lounges in new outfits, I want to be shopping for said new outfits, I want to be hiking and biking and taking fun new classes at the gym, I want to w... Read more
The Alcohol Diet?
It happens almost every time... I lose weight after I drink. Last night I drank enough to be pretty "happy" throughout the whole game. Probably more than I should have, but I swear I don't do this that often. As I mentioned in my last blog en... Read more
Jon Lester just had a No-Hitter!!
Go Lester!!! I'm going to Fenway tomorrow... wish I could have been there tonight! GO RED SOX :)
On a totally different, totally random note, TOM started Friday night, 5/16, and is already over. I had a doctor's appt about my back on Fri... Read more
Been a while since I last blogged...and it's so gorgeous out right now I'm not even sure I feel like writing a detailed blog right now. In a little bit we're going to take my friend's puppy for a hike up Blue Hill. I will summarize how things ... Read more
Plugging through the week
My back's still bugging me. I think I need to see the doctor. I couldn't do my leg presses without my back really feeling uncomfortable. That's making me kind of upset, because I don't want anything getting in the way of me feeling fantastic ... Read more
So last night, for Mother's Day, my mom wanted to go to a Chinese restaurant. My family has always shared a bunch of dishes. Nothing was particularly healthy - even veggies were covered in salty, oily sauces, but everything was delicious and I... Read more
I just earned my 10,000-SparkPoint trophy, woohoo!
Today is gorgeous. I did three days of bootcamp videos (all caught up now), plus my Great Abs video, then a 45-minute walk at the Arboretum with Jess, then 30 minutes of legs and stretchin... Read more
I've been back on track now for almost three weeks and I am down over 10 pounds to 156.4.
I've been trying to do the healthy, balanced lifestyle "thing" this weekend. On Friday there was all kinds of food at school for Teacher Appreciation... Read more
Just wanted to quickly note that I went for an 11.14 mile bike ride today. It took me exactly 1 hour. (Weird - so did my run the other day...coincidentally!)... Read more
Checking in from school
Yesterday I was reeeeeeally tired, and kind of sore from the run, so I did a minimum of exercise - just a 30 minute walk with Jess around Jamaica Pond, and the Swimsuit Bootcamp day 4 video, which is under 10 minutes long (yesterday was a "core"... Read more
