Report in after Crawfish Boil...

I SUCK at laser tag.
I kinda wanna practice so I can get better. Now that I'm a goal making machine, being bad at something just makes me want to take it on as a challenge and kick it in the butt.
But to give you an idea -- I was in last place... Read more
Friday, how I love you so!
Today was another good day at the gym.
Much lower stress workout, burned about 515 which leaves me needing another 1000 over the weekend. BUT! I still have a 30min run planned, plus the day of Pilates and Yoga at the gym....
AND - L... Read more

WOOHOO! Today is so much better!!!!
For one thing, it's reallly gorgeous outside. I did my run outdoors. Didn't really push it, but didn't hold back TOO much either, finished around an 11min mile. It was pretty.
THEN it was time ... Read more
TOM came roaring in full force today, along with the constant morning munchies. Now, if I eat all my planned snacks, I'm left with a smaller than usual calorie allotment for dinner and I'm not even working out today!! But anyway -- it's still v... Read more
Last night's workout...

This maintenance thing is really hard sometimes.
I overate last night.
The REAL foods I ate were not so much the issue, it was all the FLUFF surrounding the real foods. Ham, asparagus, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob (CRAP, forgot to track the corn, oh well it won't add too ... Read more

21 Days, 16 workdays till SPARKCON! ;)
Today was my "light" day at the gym and I burned 574 cal. It was actually more than that because I forgot to start my HRM for a good 5-10 min, but I decided to let those calories be a BONUS burn. :) So now I'm nearly halfway through my 4000 ca... Read more
My mind is so tough! RAWR!
So today I planned to run indoors -- I knew I would be sucking it up running around a track for 30min. I only made it 2 1/3 miles, but I was DEFINITELY pulling it back the WHOLE time trying to keep my HR in the 150's. It'd creep up to the 160'... Read more
What Am I Celebrating Today?
The fact that now unflattering candids are about me making a weird face, or claw like hands. A bunch of pictures just got posted with me in them on facebook from the party on Friday night, and I will show you the one that I find the least flatt... Read more
