Blah. I haven't logged much of anything in the last 2 weeks. I've made it to the gym a few times, but not as much as I would have liked. I'm super busy, working a ton, and have a big event this Saturday I've been helping with. When I'm stres... Read more

Almost 2 years ago I ordered 4 sets of scrubs online to wear to work. They're super cute (not plain-jane) and were expensive. Out of the 8 pieces (4 tops and 4 pants), not one fit in a way I would feel comfortable wearing it to work, and some ... Read more

To make a long story short, 2.5 yrs. ago I received a Garmin GPS/Heartrate monitor for my 30th b.day. I was doing C25k and was up to being able to jog 20-25 mins. straight. I ended up having to take some time off due to some issues with my hi... Read more

Wow! I weighed in today and lost 1.5 -- not too shabby, considering we've been out of town this weekend and I've gotten no exercise, tracked nothing, and eaten freely, including a Vietnamese dinner Saturday night and lunch at Chilis yesterday. ... Read more

So today is one of those days where I am feeling UBER ANNOYED that I have to lose weight. Ticked that I just can't be thin and healthy and be able to eat whatever I want. Mad at myself for letting my body get so out of control. Yesterday,... Read more

I am starting to freak myself out a little bit. I lost 4 this week, and I realize that is AWE-SOOOMMEEE, but after my little Mexican debacle Friday night, I've kind of just grazed, shoved a handful of this in my face, a few of those, some apple... Read more

I went out to dinner with a friend last night, who I see often for nights out and breakfasts on days when I'm not working. We met at a Mexican place. I did well all day long and had plenty of calories left in my bank account. Some backsto... Read more

So I joined an 8 week "Choose to Lose Program" at the Y. Basically, a mini fitness assessment at the beginning, 1 or 2 customized fitness plans written up by a trainer, a t-shirt, and a mini assessment at the end. And then at the end, prizes a... Read more

Oh wow. I spent the last 4 days visiting my husband in Michigan, away from home. I did well for the most part, until yesterday afternoon. We went out for Chinese and I made better choices than what I normally would, but I still probably went ... Read more
