So here I was, blah blah blah, wah wah wah, about not making huge strides of progress on the bike. Then Monday night, I got on the bike and was all BANG! POW! ZOOM! I ended up with a new personal best of 15 miles in 57 minutes. I'm sure the peop... Read more

So swim workouts did not happen last week. I couldn't find my swim goggles and had to buy a new pair on Saturday. I also managed to order a swim cap, duffel bag, combo lock, and a shower caddy so I can start using the showers at the Y and their ... Read more
Getting back to routine
Wednesday, February 20, 2013      10 comments

I'm enjoying getting back to routine this week. I've got 2 workouts in so far on the bike, though neither was the 15 miles I was aiming for, 10 miles each is still pretty darned good. Dealing with some mild soreness in my thighs/quads, but nothi... Read more

Monday, February 18, 2013      9 comments

So last week was slack-tacular. Those cupcakes really threw me off my game. Well, the whole week was an odd mesh of craziness. Some things I can't really go into here, but they were all good, and I hope that means some good changes are coming my... Read more

Wednesday, February 06, 2013      6 comments

First off, thanks so much for the comments on my previous blog. I don't know why I've been on a food documentary/weight-loss reality show kick lately, but I've seen plenty enough to feel rather ranty about them. Maybe I'm just grumpy and this is... Read more
Fat Head + My Rant About So-Called "Experts"
Monday, February 04, 2013      18 comments

So last night I watched a food documentary on Netflix Instant called "Fat Head." Essentially, a comedian, Tom Naughton, wants to debunk Morgan Spurlock's (SuperSize Me) claims that eating nothing but fast food will cause you to gain weight. For ... Read more
Losing weight shouldn't be the goal
Friday, February 01, 2013      12 comments

I managed to squeak out a 1.4 pound loss this week. This time, I'm only setting a goal of a pound a week. It's definitely coming off a lot slower than it was 40-something pounds ago. More importantly, I want to make sure that everything I'm doin... Read more

Monday, January 28, 2013      8 comments

This is a long one, but I was feeling a bit ranty. So I'm usually not much on reality shows. I see enough craziness in everday life without having to watch Here Comes Honey-Boo-Boo or Jersey Shore. ... Read more

Fell into a small hole
Tuesday, January 22, 2013      11 comments

Of depression and anxiety, that is. The hole has gotten smaller over the years. It used to be a grand canyon that seemed impossible to climb out of and where I would get lost for days, months, years on end. No matter how much I cried or wo... Read more

So I thought it might be fun to try one Spark Recipe a week and post a little review of it here. Now here's the disclaimer - these are likely not going to follow the directions exactly. There's a few reasons for this. 1) Sometimes you are missin... Read more
