A little blue but still kinda green!
As I blog (thanks to SparkCoach for the prompt), I am icing the ball of my left foot after walking around on it all day, supporting my friends who ran the Monumental Half and Full marathons!
Argh, I am blue from not being able to run.

Well, I went to Taiwan 2 months ago and it was like hitting the reset button for my eating habits. I ate a lot, mind you... how can you not with grandparents around? ... but I generally ate what I wanted, when I wanted, in the amount I wanted...... Read more
Portion Control = Way Hard
Hello hello all,
Just blogging because school is cancelled for the 4th day in a row (and it's the weekend after that). This week has been havoc on my eating habits because I live alone and the silence is kinda eerie and tiring after a while... Read more
Wow... that countdown didn't last...
Hi everyone, back again but just for a brief moment.
Things are pretty tough on this end, with grad school, student teaching, the COLD weather, and wiley, riled up students... not to mention training for a half marathon, being in community ... Read more
Well, I underate all day. Then I ran 3 miles at a good pace, did abs, went to orchestra, then went to Wal-Mart to buy supplies for tomorrow plus some food. Went WAY overboard on the food. Came home and ate alone (I HATE EATING ALONE) and then do... Read more
Day 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7
Wow, I am really poor at keeping up with this blogging. I'm never at my computer, though!
So, I had a good couple of days until yesterday. I didn't hardly eat yesterday and I had a 5K to run.
I WON FIRST PLACE IN MY AGE GROUP!!!

Well, I ran 2.1 miles right before it rained.
I didn't sleep much last night... but I did come home, eat a lot while reading about not overeating, and took a nap.
Not a perfect day, but hey. I don't think it was too bad.
Goal: to... Read more

I'm back on SparkPeople.
I've made it my homepage so I can't help but log in and see how many login points I get!
With my ultra busy schedule, I'm not sure I can track every little thing and plug it in, but I think I'll just write it d... Read more
Setting a Higher Standard - for myself
Everyone that truly knows me knows that I am too hard on myself. I don't think I am. I think I am a wimp most of the time. After I finish a hard workout, though, I do feel like a champ. I also feel like rewarding myself with food. I know it's im... Read more
I Put My Two Weeks' Notice In Today
My big news:
at 4:30 PM I put in my two weeks' notice.
My boss took it quite well, considering. I think he was just way shocked. It was really tough as I don't easily quit - at anything. Even if I need to!
He said he was sad that... Read more
Woo Hoo! Feeling Great About Myself
So as most of y'all know, I went to an acupuncturist and got some needles in me as well as cupped.
This picture was taken at Sunday's swim meet. I swam a 1000y freestyle i... Read more
March in Review & April Plans
March in review April plans
1)What I accomplished in March: I trained even when I didn't feel like it. I started P90X but am just doing strength training on alternating days, so it'll take me longer than 90 days. I swam almost 2 mi... Read more
Weigh In #3, and What's going through my mind today
An excerpt from a post on a message board for the swimming challenge I am doing:
"I am training for two events (running and swimming) but if I had it my way, I would only train for the swim. Running in my life is a social thing. I run to ca... Read more
Getting to the Root of it
I read an article in Oprah magazine in which she interviews Geneen Roth, who wrote "Intuitive Eating" and a new book called "Women, Food and God" where she explores the reason behind overeating.
She says the reason we overeat is because we ... Read more
Weigh in #2
140.5 pounds again.
1) This weigh in was after the swim, but the swim was at lunchtime instead of before breakfast.
2) Did pretty well, calorie-range, but did go over a few days.
3) Wore my sandals on the scale (I can... Read more
