Public + Bathing Suit = Scary times---that I conquered

Sunday, July 01, 2012      3 comments

I am one of those people who always are covered up. I'm getting better. I started wearing shorts last summer. People were shocked! They always used to bug me about wearing jeans in 90+ heat and humidity in St. Louis -- and I shrugged it off.... Read more

Two steps back... maybe two miles forward?

Wednesday, June 27, 2012      8 comments

Okay so I've been lazy. I'll admit it. I was away from home and didn't necessarily make the best choices. I had to go up to my old college town for a friend's wedding... and who doesn't revert to their old ways when surrounded by the college ... Read more

This is what I've been up to this week...

Okay -- so here's the last week or so of my Body Media armband data + my food tracker on Spark. Here's to hoping that this will keep me losing... Read more

$10 Bowflex Heart Rate Monitor

Monday, June 18, 2012      1 comments

This was on my Groupon this morning. I bought a white one ASAP -- all of the cute colors sold out immediately. $10 for an $80 HRM is a steal! http://www.groupon.com/deals

I did alright this weekend

Monday, June 18, 2012      1 comments

SO I planned on cleaning my house. I planned on working out. I only did one of those things--luckily for me if was the working out. I'll find time to clean later -- well before Wednesday when my mom gets here anyway. I was feeling pretty... Read more

Back to tracking...

Friday, June 15, 2012      8 comments

So I've decided that my weight loss has slowed--because I slowed. I stopped tracking. I was working out, but I fudged a little on the diet. Oh it was okay to flub here... I'd be good the next day... until I wasn't. I still worked out like cr... Read more

My scale is schitzo, and its starting to make me as well...

Monday, June 11, 2012      3 comments

My scale is schitzo, and its starting to make me as well... Last Monday I had a bit of a high. My morning scale reading of 180.8 made me do a -- wait, what?! -- moment. I double checked it. Felt awesome. Sparked the weight loss and felt... Read more

June Goals

Friday, June 01, 2012      2 comments

Hello June! (Did May go by really fast for everyone else?!?) May was a month of ups and downs. The scale mainly, but there were some emotional bits in there too. I started May at 183... gained two pounds somewhere in the middle... kept b... Read more

Super Stress (!!!) after a great weekend

Tuesday, May 29, 2012      2 comments

Quick update: I have a scientific article due tomorrow to the editor... my boss still has not read the paper, is possibly still in Europe, may get to the US tonight or tomorrow, and needs to approve said paper. So as a 5th year grad st... Read more

New Puppy + Lunch with the 'rents

Thursday, May 24, 2012      1 comments

My parents just left for their quick day trip to get a new puppy from a breeder in town. After much debate on the issue I think this little guy is going to be Walter: ... Read more

Dealing with a new guy... foot meet mouth.

Wednesday, May 23, 2012      2 comments

So I think this new guy that I'm dating might stick around. It also helps that he lives in the same town... but he started to put his foot in his mouth and I didn't speak up. He's a doctor and somehow we got talking about a random topic.... Read more

Whelp, I've had an interesting week...

Monday, May 21, 2012      2 comments

Whelp, I've had an interesting week... Not a great week for food, but I did work out A LOT! I'm mixing the Bob Harper DVDs in with cardio on my treadmill and I'm trying to walk more during the day instead of just sitting at my desk like I a... Read more

Taking a break from writing at work to write on Spark, go figure

Wednesday, May 16, 2012      2 comments

I'm taking a break from writing at work to write on Spark, go figure. I still can't seem to find the motivation to write this review paper. We got asked to do it by someone my boss met at a conference. And with my boss gone for this entire mo... Read more

Fine I'll take a rest day

Tuesday, May 15, 2012      1 comments

Even as I say I'm going to take a rest day I'm feeling guilty. Guilty to miss a workout. Who am I? I did a new kettle bell workout DVD -- Bob Harper's Kettlebell Sculpted Body. I made it through... barely. I've never used a kettlebell befo... Read more

Weekend of the carb monster.

Monday, May 14, 2012      4 comments

So this weekend I was not-on-my-game. I went out Friday, drank way more than I should have and spent Saturday semi-hungover. Which led to no exercise and poor food choices. Now I know = hangover = carb loading madness monster. Sunday I w... Read more
