Making the connection to how you feel afterwards
Wednesday, January 11, 2012      2 comments

I just wrote a comment over at Rainthief's blog, and thought "Hey, I should make an actual post about this!" I like to listen to The People's Pharmacy, a radio show on NPR about health and medicine. On New Year's weekend, they did a show ab... Read more
Other ways of taking care of myself
Monday, January 09, 2012      5 comments

Today I thought I'd write about a couple of other ways I am taking care of myself. This afternoon I'm going to see a new doctor to talk about medication management. I'm on a few different meds whose effectiveness and side effects change ove... Read more
A walk in the park

On Saturday, I went with my husband to a recently opened nature trail nearby. It's a great trail -- fairly wide and paved, so it would be great for riding a bike. (In fact, there were TONS of families out riding bikes!) The whole trail is a 12-m... Read more
An intuitive reset
Friday, January 06, 2012      2 comments

So I just reset my goals and tracking, which meant I had to go through the setup process again. The first time, I set everything up the way it had been. I chose the "I have a weight loss goal" option, and set a goal of losing 30 pounds in o... Read more

Well, since my last blog entry, I haven't actually been running again. Instead, I've been doing gardening and a WHOLE lot of house cleaning. It was a disaster zone in here. When the dishwasher broke, and we were out of clean dishes, I snapped. I... Read more

Yoga and Netflix
Tuesday, June 28, 2011      5 comments

Whoo! Today I did a 45-minute basic yoga video from Netflix streaming, and it was GREAT. It wasn't anything super-intense -- went fairly slow, relaxation between each pose -- but I was still sweating! And I felt so good afterwards. Calm, clear, ... Read more
Running, and foam rollers
Tuesday, June 28, 2011      1 comments

Yes, I'm back! After a couple of months away from running, I picked it up again last week, and found myself able to run (at 5 mph pace) for 15 minutes straight! Of course, the next day I barely made it to 10 minutes and was exhausted. I de... Read more
Thinking about motivation and rewards
Monday, August 30, 2010      2 comments

Well, I thought the sleepiness was getting better, and then spent Thursday through Sunday either asleep, or so groggy and grumpy that I couldn't do much but watch movies. Which means I didn't log food, and didn't get myself up and moving enough ... Read more
Losing another kind of extra weight
Tuesday, August 17, 2010      7 comments

Today I decided to clean out my closet and dresser. Not because I've lost a bunch of weight and need new clothes (that day will come) -- just because I was tired of having to shift around those clothes I haven't worn in forever. When every singl... Read more
Scale and C25K success
Monday, August 16, 2010      4 comments

After losing my ID card last week, I couldn't go to the gym on Friday. I went and got a replacement today, and then hit the gym. Weighed in as usual and -- hold the phone, 141?! I was at 138 last week! I started at 143 a month ago! I don't under... Read more

The weekend may have been rough, but this week has been great so far. I've powered through 2 of the Week 4 Couch to 5K workouts -- it feels awesome to be able to run 2 5-minute intervals. I've been doing well at making good food choices. And tod... Read more

Stupid browser ate my post. Trying again. So the weekend, not so great. It started on Thursday night when I let myself get too hungry before going out, and ended up eating fish & chips and beer because of it. Went on all weekend because I k... Read more
Yeah, I don't know

Happy birthday to me, I suppose. Rough night last night. Couldn't get to sleep and just mentally beat myself up for hours, about all kinds of things. I was mostly upset yesterday by the news that a classmate of mine -- who started his ... Read more
Couch to 5K, Week 2
Wednesday, July 28, 2010      2 comments

I'm on Week 2 of C25K. So far it's been going great. The pace of my running seems like a good one so far. I run at 5.5 mph and walk at 3.5. The running is just slightly challenging, as it should be -- but I'm not gasping for breath and wanting t... Read more
