I may be a boob, but this makes me tear up, smile, and be inspired every time I watch it. Read more
Weights...blargh and yay
Saturday, August 04, 2012      2 comments

I've never been a huge fan of the weight room. I don't hate it but I'm always staring longingly out the window wishing for a run. Y'know how I know it's good for me though? First, I read books and blogs and Oxygen and they tell me it's good for ... Read more
The Cringe Picture
Wednesday, February 22, 2012      2 comments

C'mon you have it too. That one picture...or two...or sometimes a whole vacation's worth. The ones where you take one look and cringe. Where the original moment is pushed aside for the "God! I'm fat!" moment. What's even stranger is coming acr... Read more

I'm sitting here at the desk in my bedroom thinking about time. How much has passed, how much is yet to come, how precious and important the present is. The world lost two amazing people this week. Sarah Burke and Etta James. Both legends in... Read more
How much structure is too much?
Monday, September 26, 2011      1 comments

Have you noticed something about my blog? I have. I make big plans involving lots of numbered days that last for about a week or two and then fizzle out faster then a candle in hurricane. I crave structure. I like tracking my food, seeing the co... Read more
Live Fit - Day 5 Surprising Conclusions
Friday, September 09, 2011      1 comments

Today was a f@ck it sort of day. Little sleep, no workout at the gym, emotional eating and stress, stress, and more stress. Blarg. I keep telling myself that I will not react in those ways but it is SO hard to obliterate all the old, nasty ha... Read more
Live Fit - Day 3
Wednesday, September 07, 2011      1 comments

God, am I sore. Not injury sore, but burning muscle sore. I had a 9 hour day at work and I was bushed when I got home, so it was rest day. I'll resume legs tomorrow. On the nutrition front, I'm eating clean, but I feel like I could be gettin... Read more
Live Fit - Day 2 Tired
Tuesday, September 06, 2011      0 comments

Ok. Day 2. First semi-busy day since starting this thing. I had a networking event for work, then a doggy play session, and didn't get into the gym until 10:30 tonight. I definitely had a moment or two where I debated about working out. But I... Read more

So, can't sleep and thought I'd post the pics I took today as a starting point for my progress in the Live Fit program. While I'm not over the moon about my shape, when I compare it to my 212 lbs pics, it's definitely progress! So these are a ... Read more
Live Fit - Day 1
Monday, September 05, 2011      1 comments

Wow. It's amazing to look at my last blog entry and realize it's been a year almost to the day since I last posted something. It's ironic that I did exactly yesterday what I did on the same day a year prior. I logged my breakfast on SP, ran 2... Read more

And we're back home from our nomadic vacation across North America. We traveled something ridiculous like 30,000 km at the end of it between all the there and back and mini trips but I'm finally home! I also got on the scale yesterday and weig... Read more

6 months
Sunday, July 04, 2010      3 comments

I'm looking back over my blog and realize it's been 6 months since I decided I was sick of status quo. In 6 months I've lost 21 lbs, said good bye to the 200s forever, been ridiculously happy and successful as a vegan, currently sit at 41-35-46... Read more
I want to run.
Sunday, July 04, 2010      1 comments

I really do. I've never considered myself as much of an athlete, but I've been reading some blogs here on SP and I'm in awe of what some people have done once they committed 100% to something they wanted. I want to run. I harbor dreams of bei... Read more

I feel like a Lulumon advert but this really sums everything positive today. Something's finally clicked. I really WANT this. It's the only way things are going to happen. Woke up at 5 today for an outdoor run, made it almost twice around th... Read more
