Haven't done much in the last year. But I'm back, and my husband has joined SP as well. Excited to see what the future holds!... Read more
I'm Slipping in a BAAAAD Way!
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
This is Only a LITTLE BIT Depressing...
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
I Did It!!!
Short but sweet -- I did it. I stopped eating when I was full, instead of cleaning my plate. This is HUGE for me.
I made a delicious, low-cal dinner. Sauteed whatever veg. I had in the fridge (ended up being cabbage, onion, mushrooms, an... Read more
Feeling GRRR-EAAAT Today!
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.

Today is One of Those Days...
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
This is Scary.
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
Ruh oh...Friend Sabotage
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
Well Now...THAT Was Sure Embarrassing
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
Learned a BIG LESSON --I NEED Sparkpeople!
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
Waaayyy Too Hard on Myself. How Do I Change???
Blah. That's how I feel after weighing myself this morning, the first WI since starting Sparkpeople (again) and the BL Challenge.
As my username suggests, I'm a total Type A personality. I stress about everything, want every little thing ... Read more
