Monday, April 23, 2012      2 comments

1. Not smoke. Implement electric cigarette for transition. 2. Meet food and water intake goals. 3. Exercise. No specific limit, 10 minutes or 30 will be equally okay. Just get moving again. Ideas for exercise today: ride bikes with DH,... Read more

Last year's post: "I don't like New Year's. It's a lame reason for a party. Or a stupid excuse to be nostalgic and lament how everything wonderful and good is ending. Or an idealistic opportunity to pretend that everything is going to chang... Read more
Oh, no!

Well, I definitely let myself go this summer. I'm up ten pounds. I'm sitting back at 137ish. My clothes don't fit. I can't afford to buy new ones. I'm embarrassed to be such a yo-yo. Especially on Spark. So I've been trying for the las... Read more
Getting it out, I guess.

Last Thursday one of my students died. That statement doesn't convey the gravity of the situation. I had Trevor* in my journalism I class the first year I taught. H... Read more
I WILL keep my hands busied.

With projects. In order to slow this behavior of using them to shovel food into my mouth. -- finish crocheting a scarf -- do laundry -- clean my car -- plant a new flower bed in the back yard -- paint my neighbor's table -- pull u... Read more
Parasites. Why'd it have to be parasites?
Thursday, May 14, 2009      5 comments

Adam's brother spotted a worm on one of our cats last night. UGH! Parasites gross me out more than anything you could imagine. Seriously. And I've been making it worse by reading online. Now I'm totally convinced that I have parasites in my... Read more
A thousand times better.

I feel about a thousand times better today. I actually got to log a loss... which is really surprising to me, but I'm appreciating it. I'm one day closer to summer and we'll get our final newspaper finished up today. *whew*... Read more
Just things I'm reflecting on while high on allergy meds.

I picked another fight over food with Adam last night. I dunno what's going on with me. I feel angry a lot and I just want to eat, eat, eat. I know I'm going to end up logging another gain this week. I think it will be smaller (I hope) than last... Read more
Consequences.
Monday, May 04, 2009      3 comments

I stopped logging. Completely. After Thursday, I was done. I was determined to eat anything I wanted this week. I was sick of being the girl who counted calories and couldn't eat that. I just paid up. I logged so that I'd see the damage. Ba... Read more
It has to be cheating.

Okay-- this week has been a calorie nightmare. I've been posting my calories, but the total ain't pretty. Today I allowed my friends to persuade me to go out to lunch again. Sushi this time. I just KNEW, KNEW this would be bad because I've ... Read more
Heaving sigh.

I just binged. I went out to eat for lunch. I had Moo Goo Gai Pan. I thought it'd be relatively low-cal. I was definitely wrong. I ate an egg roll and all my rice and rice noodles too. I'd planned not to eat for the rest of the day. I just ... Read more
Too much of a leap?
Monday, April 27, 2009      6 comments

I did my first 5K this season. it wasn't pretty, but I did it. I actually (sadly) ran more of it than any of the other 25 people there. My time was about 52 minutes, but the trail was actually about a quarter of a mile longer than 5K. Not a grea... Read more
Sprinting.

Today has been amazing, and it's only 7:30 am. I went out to eat last night. Only went over my calories by 1. :-) I awoke at 5:30 am to the sound of Adam's motorcycle starting up. He bought an old, beat up thing from his brother's frie... Read more
Tasty Reese's substitute.

I've become addicted to chocolate rice cakes. I was low on calories today (that's rare!), so I treated myself to one with 2 tsps of peanut butter on it. It was DELICIOUS. And much more filling and fulfilling than a PB cup.... Read more
Seeing results.

So, I positive-talked myself into working out yesterday. It felt GREAT! I went to a friend's gym (as a guest) and was using the machines to train my arms. Guess what I noticed? A MUSCLE. I real one. I could actually SEE it. That was really empow... Read more
