Here's a totally "duh" observation I've had recently... when I work out less, I'm less hungry! In the late months of 2008 I was working out a LOT - a few hours a day - and I was hungry until I'd eaten over 2,100 calories. Now I'm working out a... Read more
Marathon watching and Jillian Michaels' reading
Today we went downtown and watched the Boston Marathon close to the finish line. I was so impressed that so many people were able to run so far, so fast. It was a lot more meaningful now that I am a bit of a runner...I know that these people w... Read more
Not much new to report, but it had been a while since my last blog entry. Today was my "official" weigh-in...I'm exactly two weeks into my latest weight-loss effort...and I am down another pound. Three pounds in all.
I've been feeling a b... Read more
I think I should change my weight loss ticker to reflect a more appropriate goal weight for me - currently the goal weight is 130. The problem is, I have extremely mixed feelings about what my goal weight should be.
In my adult life I have... Read more
Learning more about what works for me
Daily weight fluctuations make NO sense sometimes. Case in point: After gorging on Easter dinner, my weight remained completely unchanged yesterday. Then this morning, after a relatively light day calorie-wise and an hour-long run, my weight w... Read more
Awesome Fun-ness: A Tour of Boston by Sneaker
I just had the most fun workout!!! After work, dentist appointment, and a visit to Barnes & Noble to drink a skinny latte and read Shape, I drove to my boyfriend's office in Boston's South End. I popped up to say hi, and then, with my phone, c... Read more
I didn't gain!
163.2 again today - that means I didn't gain any weight from Easter dinner!... Read more
I'm Jewish, but since I've been with my boyfriend I've now celebrated Easter with his family five times, so I think I've earned the right to wish you all a happy Easter! Happy Passover too, though I don't think any Jewish Sparkers read my blog.... Read more
My boyfriend and I weigh the same
He's 5'10", I'm 5'6" and today we both weighed in at 163.2. Yuck! He looks great at this weight - me, not so much. Not only is he taller but he also has so much more muscle. Yesterday was a chest strength training day for both of us at the g... Read more

Another Busy Day
So last night I probably ended up (briskly) walking about 40 minutes from where I parked to the ballpark and back. We ate at Quiznos before the game - I had a chicken caesar salad and only used a bit of the dressing, and I gave half of my pita ... Read more
Six more school days until April vacation - thank goodness! I can't wait for some time to really spend on my goals!
The first Red Sox game of the season was yesterday, and I went out to watch at a bar across the street from Fenway Park. I... Read more
When I'm on my third blog entry of the day...
I must be on track, right? I'm on my third blog entry of the day!
Here's a picture Jess took last night of my family. I did NOT want my picture taken at my current size, but I was pleasantly surprised that my loose shirt hid my sins pretty... Read more
A couple more random things
I just calculated that I was running an average of 5.8 MPH at the pond yesterday. Not bad considering how out of shape I am now! I want to be back in race form eventually - maybe even do better in the Tufts 10K in Oct. '09 than I did last year... Read more
