Fenway Food - Warning - Ranting Ahead
Wednesday, June 17, 2009      11 comments

Last night I went to a Red Sox game with my boyfriend and some of our family members, and we also all went to the Longhorn Steakhouse for dinner beforehand. My observation? Food was WAY too central a feature! With the help of Sparkpeople I ha... Read more
Ten Percent
Tuesday, June 16, 2009      6 comments

One thing I love about SparkPeople is reading other people's blogs. Hearing about other people's triumphs and even their struggles reminds me to stay on track. And on a surprisingly regular basis, I gain valuable insight from other people's th... Read more
Blogging to try to prevent myself from going crazy!
Monday, June 15, 2009      10 comments

It's the end of the school year. As the special educator, I've stopped seeing students for the most part, and instead I'm swamped with end-of-year paperwork. Long hours of boring paperwork gives me the worst case of the munchies. Put that tog... Read more

ource/fitness_maps_home.asp I don't know if this is a new feature, but I just found it for the first time today! (There was a link from the start page.) I used it to find out that my bike ride this morning... Read more
Oh....We're Halfway There! (and 5K Calculations)
Friday, June 12, 2009      9 comments

Today I weighed in at 152.8, which means that I have now lost 12.2 pounds and have 12.8 more pounds to go! I am being optimistic and thinking that this weekend, after sleeping in late, my weight will be down even more, so today is the day that ... Read more
5K Times
Thursday, June 11, 2009      6 comments

I've decided to record all of my fastest 5K training times together in one place - here! So far, these have all been done on a treadmill. I know I have gone faster than this in the past, but it would take quite a bit of searching through old b... Read more
Two Dangerous Paths
Wednesday, June 10, 2009      12 comments

I have come to the realization that there is not just one, but TWO dangerous paths to which I am prone, both of which I must try to avoid if I want to effectively manage my weight. Dangerous Path 1: Do whatever I want, whenever I want, beca... Read more

Wow, I've earned my rest day tomorrow - 5.5 miles yesterday + 7.5 miles today = 13 miles this weekend! I need to list today's stats in two different ways - one for the running-only portion at the beginning, and one for the entire thing that... Read more

154.0 pounds this morning - that's a BMI of 24.9 - I am no longer "overweight!" Now, I have celebrated this exact fact multiple times in the past only to eventually become overweight yet again - no more!! This time I am being moderate, flexibl... Read more

I am going to be a big lazy dork right now and write a blog entry rather than going to each individual person's page to answer questions. I LOVE getting comments on my blog, but I find responding to them to be rather awkward! KJNE8O-We al... Read more
Random little check-in
Thursday, June 04, 2009      7 comments

Yesterday afternoon I was feeling rather tired, but had an "easy run" to do. (I see "easy run" and I think it means "easy but longer than normal," which I just wasn't up to yesterday!) Run_Lift_Eat suggested that I try running the route of my ... Read more
Pace Training Day
Tuesday, June 02, 2009      10 comments

Today was the scary pace training day - the day where I see how fast I can possibly run 5K on the treadmill. The result? 25:45. Not my fastest ever, but not bad! A few notes: *I had a mug of half-caf, and dinner, beforehand, but I thin... Read more
Best "Computer Game" Ever?
Monday, June 01, 2009      5 comments

What a ripoff - it turns out that I could only play the games on my new computer for free a handful of times. Now if I want to play them again, I'm prompted to a screen that invites me to buy "chips." WTF?? But also, what a blessing in disguis... Read more
