I've veered off course, but I'm back. Same old story. I was doing so well with my eating and exercise from April through most of August... then I went on a week-long vacation toward the end of August and started getting sloppy w... Read more
Miss Ya Spark Friends!
I haven't been around much lately, except to track my calories, which I've been keeping up religiously. I'm back on Cape Cod, but I brought my computer, and I've been totally on track! My weight is now down to 143.8 so I'm within a handful of ... Read more
Should I switch over to a bridal website for my blogs for the next six months?? Chances are I'm going to want to write about being engaged more than I'm going to want to write about health/fitness (although I'm holding my own in that area - I've... Read more
"Guess what...will you marry me?"
Wellfleet, Massachusetts is a special place for Jess and me. For those unfamiliar with Cape Cod, Wellfleet is an hour's drive once you cross the bridge from the mainland, just two towns from the "end of the earth" (Provincetown, the Cape's tip)... Read more

Jess and I are leaving for Cape Cod tonight and coming back on Sunday. I will miss SparkPeople while I'm gone!!
I have recently been re-reading my SP blog, starting with my very first entry back in December 2006, at which point I'd been bo... Read more

**BORING BLOG ENTRY AHEAD**
This afternoon, after I was done checking email, I settled down on the couch to start reading _Three Cups of Tea_ but promptly fell asleep and stayed that way until my boyfriend called me a good portion of an hou... Read more
I LOVE running in the city. There are so many superfast runners along the Charles - it's so inspiring. The only problem is that I tend to be the slowest one out there! Tonight I ran from where I parked in Mission Hill, to the Pour House where... Read more

Today my boyfriend, Jess, and a friend, L, and I went to Newport, Rhode Island to go to the beach! The weather was perfect for once - we've had so much cold and rain this summer, so for it to be sunny, 80 degress, AND a Saturday all at once was... Read more

Speaking of running, yesterday I did a longer version of a loop I've been doing lately - Speen to Hartford all the way to Bi... Read more
I Felt Fit Today!
Today I put on one of my tightest workout tops, which I hadn't worn for several months, since before I gained back the 30+ pounds I'd lost. It still clings to more belly than I'd like, but still, it made me feel pretty. :)
I wanted to run ... Read more

How things are going, in general.
I wonder if sleep deprivation can somehow make you gain weight. I only work until noon during the summer, and on Monday afternoon-evening I ended up taking an impromptu six-hour nap!! I have felt much better ever since, even though my weight i... Read more
Not a fan of Mondays
I don't know how to say this without sounding braggy, but I think I did a really good job on the eating front this weekend. My summertime weekends are three days long thanks to Fridays off (tough life, I know), and I stuck to my normal eating sc... Read more
