The Skilled and Unskilled Observer (and post vacation weigh-in)
Friday, December 11, 2009      2 comments

To the unskilled observer, I should not be losing weight. They might be thinking I can eat anything and not gain. I eat 'normal' food. I don't avoid carbs or fat. I am seen eating a fast food burger or taco on occasion. I drink a glass... Read more
My Friends' Wedding!
Thursday, December 10, 2009      5 comments

After coming back from the private beach, it was time to get ready for the wedding. We didn't plan it, but three of us had matching dresses! Totally coincidental! It was the most efficient sharing of one bathroom for three girls I've ever see... Read more

We took a red-eye flight from Seattle to the Bahamas. I napped on the plane, but didn't get much restful sleep. During our plane change in Charlotte, we had breakfast. Then we got on the last leg to the Bahamas! We arrived at about 2pm a... Read more

Snorkeling is way better than the gym!
Friday, December 04, 2009      5 comments

Just a brief entry to say - snorkeling and swimming in the Caribbean Sea is way better 'exercise' than peddling for hours on the elliptical at the gym! I'll take it any day! Having tons of fun in the sun and activities. My friends' weddin... Read more
The Weigh in Before Vacation
Wednesday, December 02, 2009      1 comments

I took my pre-vacation weigh in this morning. I stepped on the scale, prepared to face the music for Thanksgiving week. I prepared myself for the worst, rationalizing after I get back I'll be in control of counting calories and regular workout... Read more

Poor Hygiene at the Gym
Sunday, November 29, 2009      4 comments

I'm always amazed by the gym rats who religiously exercise for hours miss one of the most basic tenants of good health - good hygiene. How can they exercise for good health and yet not wipe down their exercise machines when finished sweating on... Read more
The Day After Review: Not as Bad as I Thought
Friday, November 27, 2009      3 comments

Yesterday was a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends. I enjoyed sharing food and stories, and spending time with great people. While yesterday I wrote my goals that I wasn't going to worry about calories and dieting, it would be dishonest f... Read more

Eating More, Losing Weight, and Thanksgiving Feasts
Wednesday, November 25, 2009      2 comments

Last week, I seemed to be at a plateau. My weight stabilized. My GoWear Fit showed that I was burning more calories than I was consuming. However, no inches lost, and no change in the scale either up or down. I ate a couple of large meal... Read more
The Biggest Loser and Pondering Success
Wednesday, November 25, 2009      2 comments

I know, I know. It threatens to set unrealistic expectations. It's basically a game show. But I still kind of like it. I haven't seen the show in the past couple of weeks. Tonight I caught the tail end of the weigh in. They looked amaz... Read more
GWF (Bodymedia Fit) Eerily Accurate
Sunday, November 22, 2009      8 comments

I bought a GoWear Fit (now renamed Bodymedia Fit) about a month ago because I heard it can track your calories burned with about 90% accuracy. I've always been curious about how much my body really burns during exercise. I'm a bit of math nerd... Read more

Thursday, November 19, 2009      6 comments

Last Saturday, my boyfriend and I took advantage of the early ski slope opening in Washington. The past couple of years the skiing has been terrible. No snow. This year, lots of snow before Thanksgiving! Snoqualmie Summit opened their lifts ... Read more
