Monday, July 23, 2012      4 comments

I’m at a place I never thought I would be. After losing 69 pounds, I regained 24 of it. Since I got rid of all my fat clothes, I’m barely cramming myself into my current clothes. I have a plethora of excuses. Some legit. Most ... Read more
HLC: I am worth it...
Thursday, April 12, 2012      3 comments

1) I am worth it because: I need to be the person I imagine myself to be. 2) I am worth it because: life is easier when there is less of me to carry around. 3) I am worth it because: my outer strength needs to match my inner strength. 4) I... Read more

I want to be able to compete in a triathlon at the end of August. To do this, I will swim twice a week, run twice a week and bicycle twice a week for the next 10 weeks (at least). When I reach this goal, I will get myself a competition worthy ... Read more

I've been trying to be upbeat on my postings. But, basically I'm in a huge funk and have been for a while. I'm putting up a fraudulent front. I gained weight in Nov/Dec which depressed me bc I thought about how vigilant I was about losing... Read more

The grocery store had boneless, skinless chicken breast on sale for $1.49/lb this weekend. I bought 18 packages. (probably 2-3 lbs/pkg) My co-worker just loaned me a food grinder that affixes to the KitchenAid. Assuming it fits onto m... Read more

While in NJ for work, I totally took advantage of the free pass I got from the local gym. I went to Zumba. I hated it. The moves were lame-o. I really dislike when the moves are changed up every 4 beats bc by the time I figure out what ... Read more
TRIed and Completed!!

Taking JENNSWIMS's suggestion, I decided to do my own personal sprint triathlon on Friday. Doing a triathlon is something I’ve been hemming and hawing about for awhile. I guess I just needed the kick in the pants to do it. Plus, the lack ... Read more
Running Out of 2011
Saturday, December 31, 2011      2 comments

My running has been for-crap lately. The shortened daylight (and bad weather) is killing me. I can't motivate to run more than 2.5 miles on the treadmill. B.O.R.I.N.G. I did a 5K today. I went by myself. And joined 2449 others ther... Read more

I'm pretty frugal with my clothes budget. I've basically convinced myself if I spend a lot of money on some clothes, it's like I've told myself that *this* is my finishing place on the weight loss journey. So, I go to the really awesome th... Read more

Disclaimer: Ridiculous vanity follows. Click BACK on your browser if you don't want to read self-important whining. I'm doing pretty good at going to the fitness center. I set my alarm for 5:00am and after a few Snooze smacks, I make it ... Read more
The Oz Wasn't the Only Fraud

I’m a dichotomy. By my nature, I’m introverted. (INTP!) But, I live in a world where extroversion is rewarded. I’ve trained myself to be extroverted even when I don’t want to be. And the WWW is my gateway. When I blog, I’m perky, pepp... Read more
Courtship of the Arc Trainer
Thursday, December 08, 2011      0 comments

This morning I did 1.5 miles on the treadmill and got bored. My HR was about 145-150 most of the time. I decided to try the Arc Trainer. The Arc Trainer looks like a gazelle and an elliptical had a baby. I do.not.like ellipticals. I... Read more

Since my running program has pretty much fizzled out due to the weather/lack of daylight, I finally bit the bullet and got a gym membership. The good news is that it's a month-to-month contract - which means I can stop paying once the sun c... Read more
The Disappointed Oh

Over the last month or so, I've been seeing a lot of people that I hadn't seen for 6+ months. Nearly everyone has something positive to say about how much better I look and is complimentary of my weight loss. Yay! {Begin rant.} T... Read more
Windsail on the Racecar Course
Monday, November 21, 2011      0 comments

Yesterday, Shapeshifter09, my sons and I ran a 5K race. I think I like Sunday races better than Saturday races. The boys took off early and I didn't see them till the end - as I expected. I was the only person with a stroller in the r... Read more
