My First Spin Class
I'm on a new kick right now to really try to get more sleep, so I'm going to try to keep this short. Getting enough sleep is key for keeping my appetite in control and having energy for working out (and for life in general).
Yesterday - 13... Read more

I won't make this long, but I need to just state for the record that I LOVE the three dishes I've made myself this week. All recipes are keepers!

Moods, Bloating, Cooking, Boyfriend
Wow, I haven't blogged since Wednesday, which is a long time for me. I've had a bit of a roller coaster of emotions since then, although I can't exactly pinpoint why. I'll start with Wednesday night....I felt guilty about skipping the gym, but... Read more
Can't stop blogging today........
Naughty me, I didn't go to the gym. I put on my gym clothes and then drove straight to Jess'. WTF? I guess I could salvage the situation by doing at least a quick ab workout or something. I kinda feel right now like...maybe once in a while I... Read more
"Bad News" was the subject of an email my boyfriend sent me today. It is looking likely that everyone in his company is going to get a 20% pay cut and will only work four days a week. Plus, he might get laid off within the next six months. Ot... Read more
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
This has been my breakfast almost every day for the past couple months. It makes a HUUUUGE smoothie that most mortals would not be able to finish in one sitting, but it keeps me going all morning long!
1.5 cups soy milk (or you could use r... Read more
Quick Blog Before Bed #2
136.8 today, oh well.
A couple responses to comments on yesterday's blog: I am 5'6" and I agree, classes can be easier sometimes than working out on your own!
Today I held my new size 2 pants up to my old size 4 pants and they seemed t... Read more
Quick Blog Before Bed
I was very happy to weigh in at 135.6 today - same as yesterday, but much earlier in the morning AND on the scale at my place, woohoo! Then I wore my new size 2 pants to work and they already seem looser than they did in the store on Saturday. ... Read more
I should be cooking...
...but I'm procrastinating and blogging instead.
Last night we went out, just the two of us, and I had about 3.5 drinks and was up til 2 a.m. So I've been feeling a bit yucky today. I shouldn't have had so many drinks or stayed out so lat... Read more
Size 6 1/2 and Size 2!
One trip to the mall - two size stories to share.
Tiffany & Co: We got the full diamond tutorial!!! I am a size 6 1/2 and want a round brilliant cut, maybe 3/4ths to 1 carat, with a simple platinum (or white gold, maybe??) band. And when ... Read more
I feel good.
I've been sick for hmm....a couple weeks now....it started with a cough and sniffles, then I had a stomach thing for several days...and the whole time I was feeling very tired and run-down. I hesitatingly say that I feel GOOD right now! I hope... Read more
My version of shopping on Black Friday
This morning I slept in nice and late and then weighed in at 138.0 which sort of means that I gained 1.4 pounds on Thanksgiving, except that I was weighing in on a different scale this morning than yesterday (today was the scale at my place) and... Read more
The Thanksgiving Report
I did everything I said I was going to do, but I still kind of feel like I cheated because I ate so much more than I normally do and SO much more sugar. There wasn't a salad like I'd been imagining, but I was able to fill most of my plate with ... Read more
Thanksgiving Day Plan
So yesterday I rested and slept a lot, and so far today I'm feeling better. I didn't eat everything on my plan yesterday and came in at just over 2,000 calories, but I didn't exercise either and my weight was up a bit today to 136.6. Today I a... Read more
