I said no.

I said no last night. I said no to ice cream for dessert. I said no to multiple pieces of bread (which turned out to be good because Brad burned it..) I said no to guac and chips before dinner. I said yes to steak (which pained me--I'm n... Read more
Thursday and UPS
Thursday, July 07, 2011      1 comments

I hate waiting for UPS. UPS was to deliver my box of USANA stuff today. And they did...and the driver was very kind. But I still hate waiting. It was a pretty good sized box. And now I have everything I need for a 5 day "cleanse" and... Read more

Let me explain my status message from this morning, now that I am significantly less emotional. I went to bed early last night and felt pretty good. I got up to go to spin (I checked that there REALLY WAS spin today...just in case.) and wa... Read more
So I woke up early this morning and...

turned off my alarm...and then realized there was no spin today. Today is Tuesday. Meh. But, I got up and went to the gym anyway and ran on the treadmill for an hour. I found a treadmill with a tv that WORKS so I got to watch bad cable :... Read more
Uneventful :)

Today was pretty uneventful. Highlight of the day was using my Pampered Chef (read: way too expensive) mandolin to slice up a cucumber and some onions to make cuke salad. I successfully made the salad and my fingers never touched a knife... Read more

Well, I didn't lose anything this week, but I didn't GAIN anything either. So that's a plus. Kinda disappointed that I didn't lose ANYTHING, despite all the workouts and only having one meal (Dinner with Brad on Thursday night) that didn't qui... Read more
Running is all in my head.
Saturday, July 02, 2011      4 comments

I really think that running is a sport that is 90% mental and 10% physical. Maybe my percentages are off, but today's run showed me that it is definitely more mental than physical. The physical first: plantar fasciitis sucks. It's basic... Read more
Spinning and slipping on jeans...

I did it! I got up (before the alarm went off even!) and went to spin this morning! I'm still trying to work the logistics so that I can still get to school at a reasonable hour (e.g. more than a half hour before school brain will N... Read more

I feel REALLY full considering my "nutrition counter" says I've only eaten about 700 calories today. I went and had breakfast out, and just had pancakes and bacon (and coffee). Then I got invited to lunch by one of my friends who happens to b... Read more
The Eighth Circle Of Hell

Let me put this in perspective. It's June. In Colorado. Usually this means the high is somewhere mid-70s or low 80s. Outside. Inside, it's comfortable. We have a week or so in July during which AC sales go through the roof. Right now how... Read more

Today was much better food wise. Light breakfast, then spent a few hours at school, came home and had a small lunch, went to the dentist, and am now waiting for my oven to heat up so I can make a chicken breast, couscous, and creamed corn for ... Read more
Ice Cream Conspiracy
Monday, June 27, 2011      5 comments

I really think that the ice cream companies are involved in a conspiracy to thwart my weight loss efforts. I've been good about not having ice cream in the house because I *KNOW* it's hard to have just a little. I caved today. *sigh* ... Read more
Races & Running
Sunday, June 26, 2011      2 comments

I volunteered today at the second annual race of the "Hellacious Trail Challenge." I ran this race last year in three hours 18 minutes. It's 9.8 miles through really technical, difficult trail. Lots of boulders, trees, roots, and bears. (Yes.... Read more

First the good news: I lost two pounds! I'm not going to jinx it by saying anything else about it :) Training: Today was the first day of training for the Denver Half Marathon. The bottom of my left heel hurts like hell and I had some pai... Read more
Damn voices.

This morning I got up and went on a great hike with my friend Anne. Part of why I like going with her so much is that we're both at roughly the same place fitnesswise. Sometimes she's ahead, sometimes I am... We hiked for almost 9 miles throu... Read more
