Chocolate Cake for Breakfast, Cross-Country Skiing, and Mixed Feelings
Last night I celebrated my birthday with my boyfriend, my parents, and his parents. I did pretty good with the eating - taking a cue from my mom and ordering the healthiest thing I could - the salmon, minus the butter, two veggies, salad with ... Read more
We had lots of snow last night. I'm actually happy, because it finally looks like winter outside - so pretty! This storm was well-predicted, so lots of school districts in my area decided a day in advance that there would be early dismissal. ... Read more
So today I am 31. You know what's interesting? My mother AND my grandmother both got married at 31, had their first child at 33, and their second child (and, in my mom's case, her third child too, since my brothers are twins) at 35. Here I am... Read more
My Body Likes me Better when I'm on Track
140.0 today... still on track and planning on STAYING on track. I still fit into my size 2 pants which just proves to me that the vanity sizing is ridiculous - someone who's 5'6" and 140 lbs SHOULDN'T be fitting into size 2 pants! Ha.
Gym ... Read more
Back to it.
Thank you so much to everyone who left me kind comments about my slip-up. When it first happened, I was thinking that the last thing I would want to do would be to get on SparkPeople, enter my new weight into my ticker (a weight I'd last seen i... Read more
I did it - I fell off the wagon for the first time in over five months. Goodbye, longest streak ever.
A few days ago I predicted that two parties in one weekend would press my trigger button. Was I setting myself up for a self-fulfilling ... Read more
Ohhhh, so full still! Jess' coworker has an annual xmas brunch party and he always has the BEST food (and drinks)! I had a bloody mary and thre mimosas, BBQ-Jack Daniels meatballs, cheese fondue, other fancy breads with cheese and spinach-arti... Read more
New Attitude about Parties and Healthy Eating
I have definitely broken through a mini-plateau to a new level. All of a sudden I've been noticing even more changes - my abs keep looking better (even though my butt's still flabby!) and other people have been noticing too. I had a conversati... Read more
I Love Fridays!
Finally, I'm having a day when I feel well-rested and energized. Twice this week, including yesterday, I took naps in the afternoon. I don't usually do this, but lately I have been reading that sleep is so important that naps are better than n... Read more
I weigh 134.0 today!!!!!!!!!!! (Jess' scale) This was my mini-goal weight... I set a goal on Nov. 19, when I was 137, to hit 134 by Dec. 19 - a goal of three pounds in one month. So I am eight days early! I am so surprised by this sudden wei... Read more
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
137.0 today again - third day in a row at this exact number...my body must like it!
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!

The Angels are Running!
Here I am, three seconds after crossing the finish line...I am the one in the pink jacket and gray hat.
I was in a 3.2-mile race today in the town where I teach. The rac... Read more
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
