Stream of Consciousness

Thursday, August 11, 2011      12 comments

Today is an exciting day - it is the last day of summer school, but more significantly, today is the day Jess and I close on our house! We had our final walk-through last night and it was so surreal...all that space, all that 200-year-old charm,... Read more

Following a Routine vs. Stuck in a Rut

Wednesday, August 03, 2011      13 comments

My weight hasn't changed much in about five months now. Is this good or bad? On the positive side, this is probably the lowest weight range I've ever been able to keep relatively stable over this length of time, if that makes any sense. W... Read more

Awesome Weather - Jogger's Version

Monday, July 25, 2011      8 comments

2nd blog post of the day! After the heatwave that attacked Boston as well as the majority of the country for the past few days, today's 70s felt AWESOME and I HAD to get out and run. The fact that it started out cloudy and actually ended u... Read more

Eager/Annoying Threshold: Your Opinion Wanted

Monday, July 25, 2011      10 comments

If you taught Body Pump and there was someone (me) who came to your class faithfully every week, always set up right up in front, and always used heavyish weights (well, except for biceps and shoulders), would you be glad to have a "student" who... Read more

Social Eating Situations

Sunday, July 24, 2011      7 comments

Before SparkPeople, I used to write journals that were kind of like how-to manuals for myself about losing weight. They never really worked because I was never consistent for long enough to make significant changes, but I did put some good thin... Read more

Homemade Fro-Yo

Today was a day of temperature extremes. The A/C was blasting painfully hard at summer school, but the A/C wasn't working in my Jeep or in the gym! Ugh! Well, the studio had A/C, but nowhere else did. So I just did my Body Pump and about 10 m... Read more

Proactive PMS-Related Overeating Prevention Post

Tuesday, July 19, 2011      8 comments

Yesterday I commented on my realization that a lot of my urges to overeat are related to PMS. So for now, my strategy is going to be to blog more often to try to help keep a positive mindset. Maybe I can beat this with mental power and a good ... Read more

My mother-in-law and I were looking at old photos on her computer yesterday and we came across this one from Christmas 2009...I don't think I had seen it before and I like it so I wanted to share! Read more

Doing Well

Friday, July 15, 2011      10 comments

Just figured I'd blog since I hadn't checked in recently. Buying the house is looking like a go - we signed the purchase & sale agreement earlier this week, and we're set to close on August 11! In the meantime, we are trying to save as muc... Read more

I've been hemming and hawing about whether to mention this on Spark for a while...but I'm just too excited not to...I think we're buying a house!! It is a big antique colonial up on a hill in a woodsy part of Boston....needs lots of work but we ... Read more

Did you know you can run a report that shows your weekly or monthly average calorie intake? Cool! Now I've always been rather proud of the fact that I can apparently eat a lot more than the average Sparker and still lose or maintain, but I've ... Read more

New Baseline

Monday, June 13, 2011      17 comments

Before SparkPeople my normal weight range used to be the upper 160s to lower 170s. It used to be normal for me to not exercise very much and to overeat frequently. Once I found SparkPeople the roller coaster began. I tried very hard to de... Read more

We're huge Red Sox fans and had such a great time on Friday night enjoying our first Fenway luxury box! Free food and drinks and parking (meaning no long walk to get there... Read more

Random Friday Thoughts

Friday, June 03, 2011      15 comments

When you have Monday off, like many of us did on 5/30, you reap the benefits twice: First, you get a long weekend after looking forward to it all week. Then, you only have to work four days until the NEXT weekend! YAY, it's Friday again already... Read more

I wanna blog more often.

Thursday, June 02, 2011      13 comments

Blogging is such a treat for me. Sometimes I feel like I shouldn't do it because it puts the burden of reading it on all those who are subscribed to my blog, and what I write might be boring! But I've proven to myself that I need to stop taking ... Read more
