2011 was a good year for me. I finally finished getting all of my licensing done (for ASHA and for the HPC in England) I ran in my second half marathon, but injured my ankle pretty badly in the process, and started having knee trouble as well. I... Read more
So, I know it seems contrived and cheesy, especially with the amount of Biggest Loser I've been watching... but I had a pretty huge breakthrough while running a few nights ago. It's not completely earth shattering, and I've known a lot of the bi... Read more
So, as I've said in recent posts, I've been exercising a lot lately. It's been a great way of dealing with stress and stuff! (though it is really hard to find time in my 65+ hours of work a week, I'm still managing it! go me!)
The scale is ... Read more
Day 2 met at 1500 calories. It was close...but I'm over-calculating, since my lunch was home made chicken noodle soup, and have NO idea how many calories are in it! I had a good deal of soup (maybe 3 cups worth...3.5?) so I guestimated on how mu... Read more
20 Day Streak
I'm tired of the not being back on track. Stupid school and life being hard. It feels like food is the only thing I have to look forward to anymore...but I'm going to try to make this work, gorramit.
So, I've decided that since I keep tryin... Read more
Yes, I keep falling off of it time and time again. Which is so frustrating, because I was doing such a great job up until my life fell apart in August.
I'm 5 weeks into the semester, and it's REALLY hard. I don't feel like I have time to ex... Read more
My boyfriend of 4 years left me Friday night. He told me he just isn't feeling it anymore, and that he doesn't think we've ever been right for each other.
I'm not doing too well with it. I'm scared about the apartment and my future. And I j... Read more
New Running Time!
About a week into this Sparking thing (April 7)I was super excited because I biked to school, jogged a mile without stopping, which took 16 minutes, went to a strength class, and biked home.
Now it's almost exactly 3 months later. I bike to... Read more
Becoming More Hard Core
Starting today, I'm going to see how many days I can go in a row where I make all the right choices! I'm talking about hitting my nutrition goals, exercising 30 minutes, drinking my water, posting in my amazing teams, and being more "hard core" ... Read more
Life is Too Busy
Even on this mini-break from school (while waiting for classes to really get started and for clinic to start) I'm still waaaay too busy. I'm putting most of my energy into my relationship right now. We're in a touchy phase, and I want to make s... Read more
One More Week of Finals
Wow, what a hellish couple of weeks I've had, and next week should culminate them in absolute misery :P
The good news is I'm still hitting my calorie goals...even though it's really REALLY hard! I haven't wanted to eat fast food and pizza s... Read more
This week so far, and will continue to be, a living nightmare.
Next week will be worse.
My goal is to hit my calorie goals each day, even if my proportions aren't perfect.... Read more
Mild Stress Eating
I finally gave in a little bit. The stress eating monster was killing me, so last night I had red wine (a whole bottle...I have an insane tolerance to alcohol...) and today I ate a chocolate brownie that my friend offered me.
But that's it!... Read more
E-mailing the teacher
I can't believe what I just did...
I e-mailed my Cognition teacher FIFTY questions I have on just the first (of 4) questions for the final. I feel like I've figured out what the answer is, but I don't understand it at all. So I went through... Read more
