Things have been BUSY lately. I haven't tracked for about two weeks and I don't know if I have too much time to track right now. What I am going to do is see how I'm doing without tracking food and if I can't intuit then I'll have to get back to... Read more
Last week I planned my food and was feeling good. Until Thursday night. I moved. Of course, I didn't move into an apartment stocked with healthy food. My boyfriend and I went to a pub where I had two beers and a chicken taco salad. The salad was... Read more
Not to be confused with apple-bottomed. I had thought of myself on the hourglass side of things, not a full hourglass, I guess a bit towards the brick since I have a short waist. Nonetheless, when I measure my waist and hips there is a substanti... Read more
I binged on mini eggs on Monday... though I wouldn't call it a binge. I mindlessly ate a few handfuls and though I enjoyed the first few, the pleasure of the mini egg disappears after the first few. I kept going though, as drawn in my a mysterio... Read more
Not just in my eating habits, though there too. I am not feeling comfortable in my own skin right now and even though I'm going to zumba three times per week and yoga at least once, I'm not eating right... maybe more on that later.

... and sort of odd markers.
Two years ago when my Dad was ill, I was weighing around 146. I had at that time lost about 12 pounds in the previous few months, though I'd had two bad colds. When he passed away at the end of April 2012, I we... Read more
This weekend started out wonderfully (and overall it was a good weekend, but keep reading). I got to the gym for zumba (my boyfriend also came but I had him drop me off at the door because the parking lot was busy and I only had 10 minutes until... Read more
Lots has been going on in the past two or so weeks, and most of it has been good.
I went to New Mexico for a conference two weeks ago, that was great. I went to some great sessions but, unfortunately, my paper seemed to be placed in the wro... Read more
Alright tomorrow is Friday! It's been a week of ups and downs.
First, the ups. I made it to zumba on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Monday I had a job meeting (not as formal as an interview and not for a job that currently exists) that has left ... Read more
First thing I did this weekend was get some fitness time in! Zumba (and about 15 minutes on a stationary bike with the attached screen that 'shows' you where you are riding and adjusts tension accordingly) first thing on Saturday morning. But it... Read more
This week has ended up being a sick week for me and so I've not gone to the gym. I did take a walk outside yesterday and today and that's at least something! I will go to zumba on Saturday morning though, that is a given! I'll get back to a more... Read more
I kind of want a fitbit. Will that help to motivate me? Probably not. Would it help me stay on track? Possibly. What colour wristband would I chose? Bright pink.
I will think about this a little longer... and seeing as I have a trip coming up ... Read more
I'm continuing along on my unmotivated-but-trying-to-get- it-together-anyways spiral. At least I'm trying. Sometimes I think I am thinking too much about it.
First, I just saw this TED talk this morning.

I have not been disciplined, mindful, or 'good' in my eating habits lately. I'm not sure what my problem is... but I need to figure that out! I cheated on my cleanse, and since then I haven't felt like eating meat but I have not been balancing m... Read more
