I'm posting this on my main blog, but I'm trying to figure out how not to be so selfish. Here's the link; it won't be up till I get home and can put in a couple quotes, probably tonight. http://ragamuffinchild.wordpre Read more

I tried to run earlier this week with a friend, and I don't know if it was the heat, or if we were running too fast, but I had to keep stopping and finally realized I couldn't breathe (asthma). So I ended up walking half the distance :( ... Read more

This week was...fractured, to say the least. Very odd. But a nice week. I pulled an almost-all-nighter Thursday night to finish homework for a class; stayed up till 4 AM, and then slept till after 3 PM. Got nothing done today really except p... Read more

I didn't get anything school-related done, which is bad, because i have a big paper due Sunday. Oh well. Maybe I can get it done before my gf's party... I did, however, go to the gym with DH and work my arms. Then I went to practice the ... Read more

I went swimming for 30 minutes yesterday. Good thing: I didn't hurt the way I did last time (leftover from accident), but I do hurt! Bad thing: I'm very slow! I swam about 5-7 laps in 10 minutes (depending on the stroke). I don't remember h... Read more

didn't exercise since Friday because of time. :( It's a lot harder to get "back in the swing of things" when I've been off habit since DH got back from Denmark the beginning of June. I thought I wasn't going to get to exercise again yesterday e... Read more

So after spending a little too much time watching gymnastics last night (but I couldn't leave...!) I went to the gym to do my Olympic challenge for the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans -- 5K (I chose the elliptical, but we could run or walk). ... Read more

I took these for my mom so she can stop fussing about me maybe being anorexic because I said I wanted to get down to 125#. She's a nurse, she should know better. Whatever. But this is me at 145.8. Like I said, don't look if you don't want to... Read more

I dropped another pound between yesterday and today...I've just realized I'm about one pound away from my lowest weight in college. I hadn't really been thinking about it. I've lost it differently this time, since in college I lost weight swim... Read more

I had a small disappointment today, after a frustrating day with students (it could have been worse, but it's always disappointing when kids act up, especially if they haven't been). I felt like crying. I texted a friend and my husband, and wa... Read more

So finally the scale budged this morning -- down to 147 and a few tenths ;) (My scale flips back and forth between numbers usually if I move a micro-hair -- digital!) In other news, I just finished what grading I'm going to do, now I hav... Read more
