Body Appreciation
Friday, August 09, 2013      2 comments

I wandered onto my Spark page this morning, mostly at random. As I was looking around, I noticed the picture I have of myself at 165lbs. I put it there as a reminder to myself that I was once that weight and that I can be there again, but I didn... Read more
Exercise for Enjoyment?
Wednesday, August 07, 2013      0 comments

So I read something interesting. It's not revolutionary or anything, but it came from a different angle, so it struck a different cord with me. I was actually on a depression clinic website, not a weight loss/nutrition one, so the suggestion to ... Read more
The Something Completely Different
Monday, August 05, 2013      1 comments

Ended up cleaning and going to bed, so I didn't double post yesterday. Yay! So here it is: I got a cookbook the other day that I am absolutely in love with. All the recipes in it have 4 main ingredients, and that's it. Admittedly, many of t... Read more
Bad Day for Calories
Sunday, August 04, 2013      2 comments

I still can't quite balance days out of the house with the family. If it's just me, I can bring a snack or hit Subway for a veggie sub. When we go out with Cora, I never think to pack us something because I'm so busy making sure I have all of he... Read more

Life got crazy again for a bit. Finished school, student teaching, been job hunting.... I have two interviews in the next couple days, so ... Read more

I always look forward to moving, but this time is a little different. We're only moving to a bigger place down the street, so we're moving gradually. I'd prefer taking a week to pack everything up, move it all, then unpack it. Doing little by li... Read more
Saying Stupid Things
Friday, March 15, 2013      2 comments

It doesn't happen often, but every now and then I say something and I think, "Darnit! Why? Why did you have to say that?" The current *facepalm* moment might be for the best though. Applications to be a speaker at graduation are due today... Read more
New Richard DVD
Sunday, March 10, 2013      2 comments

I got a new Richard Simmons DVD the other day and finally got around to trying it this morning. I've been using Sweatin' to the Oldies for a while now and decided Party Off the Pounds sounded like a good update. (My friend introduced me to... Read more
Don't Drink the Milkshake!
Saturday, March 09, 2013      4 comments

I'm in the middle of moving so I've been working really hard packing and moving boxes. I saw a recipe for a Mint Oreo Milkshake and thought, "Hm, I deserve a little treat for all the hard work." So I bought the ingredients, made the milkshake, d... Read more
Spring Boot Camp: Day 1...I mean, 2
Friday, March 08, 2013      2 comments

All right, time for another boot camp. Didn't update about the other one very well, but I hope to update on this one. Yesterday was officially the first day. I just didn't do my start entry for it. ... Read more
Jan Jump Start: Day 1
Monday, January 07, 2013      0 comments

I decided to do the January Jump Start boot camp again this year. I did it last year and it was really rewarding, so I figured what better way to break back into working out after a baby. Once again I find my knees are the first things to ... Read more

Well, the pregnancy ended with an emergency C-section at 32 weeks on 10/12. The baby is girl. Her name is Cora and she was 3lb 2oz when she was born. Overall, she is very healthy. She does have a VSD that will need surgery to fix, so she's still... Read more
Week 9 and feeling the mood swings...
Sunday, April 29, 2012      0 comments

Wow. Week 9 already. It's funny: I keep hearing that my due date will be adjusted at my first ultrasound, once they see exactly where the baby is in development. I'm a little nervous about that. Right now I'm on schedule to have the baby a coupl... Read more
Into Week 8
Tuesday, April 24, 2012      0 comments

A couple days into week 8 and I'm feeling pretty much the same as week 7: just waiting for week 12 (thanks for the advice, NH_MOM!). I have started getting a little of a handle on it--I have sleeves of Saltines stashed everywhere. I haven't been... Read more
Week 7 of Baby!
Saturday, April 14, 2012      1 comments

Well, life is getting more and more interesting.... Apparently I'm the nauseous type. All day, every day. I guess first pregnancies are supposed to be rougher than later ones, but it's a little crazy how sick I feel all the time. I feel hungry, ... Read more
