An exciting weekend
My boyfriend proposed to me on Saturday! It was not much of a surprise, but it was still the perfect day. He told me he was secret surprise date day, which was already suspicious (plus with some other things that have happened in the past weeks,... Read more
August did not treat me well. Luckily, that month is over; a new one has begun. I was doing alright, but then this past Saturday’s weigh-in happened. My boyfriend and I both gained almost three pounds in a week. I’m not even sure how this is pos... Read more
The fruits of my labor: gardening part III
First, an update. I haven't been around much. Lurking on peoples blogs, not much to say. I stopped caring a bit. I've been in a plateau since July. Frustrating. The last 2 weeks were rough. Not much exercise and not much calorie counting. My boy... Read more
The only luck I have is bad luck
Or so my mother says. LOL. I'm not complaining about my life, of course. Just giving an update! My eye is healed (yay!), so I'm back in the pool. Since finishing the 0 to 1650 program, I have been swimming 2000 yards (25 yards = 1 length, so 80 ... Read more
The one armed man and one eyed woman
So my boyfriend's surgery went well. The days after were pretty tough, but things are getting better. He's already not using his sling even though the surgeon said to keep it in there for 2 weeks. He has a followup appointment next week. He's pl... Read more
Never say be careful
Saturday, my boyfriend needed to go into lab to take care of some cells and then go get a haircut. Usually, he takes me car, but decided to bike (he biked all the time before I moved out here as he sold his car). Before he left, I told him to be... Read more
Some goals and holiday nails
After some thought, I decided to make some attainable goals for myself, now that I have reached the one that I had set for myself ahead of schedule (finish 0 to 1650 swim program).

Back in the pool and a question of weight
I haven't had arm pain in about 24 hours and no discomfort either, so I decided to try jumping in the pool today. I picked a swim set that wasn't as hard as a straight mile, out of paranoia. Sadly, I only made it halfway across the pool before f... Read more
Food blog: crustless quiche
Tonight I made the crustless quiche (spinach, onion, and feta) from sparkrecipes, with some minor changes. Here's the link:
I added mushrooms and garlic to the veggie ... Read more
And an injury
I woke up Sunday with some shooting pain in my left arm. No, I'm not having a heart attack. My exercise on Saturday was a bike ride, which did not hurt my arm (my butt is a different matter haha). I attributed the pain to perhaps sleeping in a b... Read more
You'll never know what you are capable of unless you try
Today was the beginning of week 5 of my 0 to 1650 (mile) swim program. Last week, the set was 600 (24 lengths of the pool), 300 (12), 4x100, 4x50. The first day (three per week) was really rough, and it took 2 days for me to recover enough to be... Read more
Every once in a while I have a day where no matter how much I eat, I am starving. Today was one of those days. I ate my usual calorie amount for breakfast and lunch, though I was feeling hungry since I woke up. Good food choices.
In additi... Read more
Gardening part I and II
I'm baaaaack! I know everyone has missed my incredibly insightful and witty blogs, so I have finally decided to get back into it. I am never sarcastic. I am settling into Fort Collins, CO very nicely. It has been a bit of a culture shock, going ... Read more
Don't count your chickens...
This morning for the first since October, I felt healthy enough to run to catch the bus to school (about a block, usually I miss it by like 1/2 a block because I couldn't put on the hustle). No knee injury. No flu or sinus infection or bronchiti... Read more
One week of back to tracking a success
So I mentioned in my update blog yesterday that I had made it through one week of tracking food again (and staying in range of caloric intake).
I lost five pounds. This means there are only 8 more pounds til I am back where I was when I to... Read more
