My sweet hubby came home early today with either food poisoning or a stomach bug, and now I'm lying in bed thinking I'm about to catch it myself any second now. I'm a huge baby - I am TERRIFIED of vomiting. So I'm kind of scared right now and fi... Read more
Week 1 I lost 3.2 pounds, from 170.0 to 166.8.
Week 2 I lost 1.6 pounds, from 166.8 to 165.2.
Week 3 I lost 1.0 pound, from 165.2 to 164.2.

I stayed late at work almost every day last week, so today I gave myself the gift of time. I had a meeting at the middle school that ended a bit past 2, stayed afterwards and chatted with the person who has the same job I do only in the sixth gr... Read more
#1 I don't get why I don't see more women in the strength training areas at my gym. Probably the majority of the time, I'm the only chick out there. I'm really loving strength training these days - you know a runner's high, well, I sometimes get... Read more
Halfway done with my six-week plan already?! I started three weeks ago on Feb. 18, for no other reason than I knew I had to sometime. I was 170.0 pounds that day, but my weight had been even higher a few days before, and I didn't fit into my pan... Read more
Today I went for my first run in over a week...I'm really trying to take it easy on my knee and fully recover from one run before I do the next. I would have loved to go somewhere more scenic but it was almost 5 P.M. when I started, so I did my ... Read more
On February 18, 2012 I started a six-week plan to jump-start the process of getting myself back on track with my weight. I have only one rule: eat 2,400 calories or less per day. Today marks two weeks completed!
Start weight (2/18/12): 170... Read more
For the past couple of months or so I've experienced some knee pain (and sometimes hip too) especially on the left side when I run. It started when I was using treadmill jogging exclusively for my cardio, doing an hour on that thing several time... Read more
What a disaster Body Pump was this morning - or, at least, the first 10 minutes of it. (The rest was OK.)
First, I left a little too late and seemed to be behind slow drivers and hitting red lights the whole way.
Second, when I arrived... Read more
Just a quick one while I finish breakfast. In a few minutes I'm off to Body Pump, and then I'm meeting my mom for lunch at a little bakery in Brookline Village. I can't believe it's the last day of February vacation already!
Yesterday I jus... Read more
On February 18, 2012 I decided to start a plan/diet/challenge to myself/whatever with one rule: stick with 2,400 calories or less per day. I decided it would be a six-week challenge so that the last day would coincide with my husband's 30th bir... Read more
Hubs and I just watched the documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. It was well done and inspiring! My only complaint is that it sometimes came off as a big infomercial for juicing machines. Oh, and that it doesn't really seem like a juice "fast" i... Read more

1. Pushup Test: 32 pushups in one minute ("good" range for women aged 30-39), however, my form sucked. It was hard wo... Read more
A long while ago, when I was actually at a relatively stable, healthy weight for once in my life, I went out and bought a bunch of work pants one day. They were all size 10 but different brands. One was khaki, one black, one gray, and one brow... Read more
I just read this little nugget in a blog:
"Since habits are created all the time and since we know their components, why not create our own? Rather than let someone else manipulate us with their chosen reward, how about deciding to reward ... Read more
