Jess (Mr. SeppieSusan) is all better now and went back to work today, and so far I haven't gotten sick myself yet, so fingers crossed that all is well.
Don't make fun of me (at least not to my face), but I still use hotmail for my email and... Read more
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

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
