Still Vegan But Not Cooking
Monday, May 10, 2010      5 comments

I don't know where my motivation to cook went, but it's gone :-( I don't know how long I can survive on Grape Nuts with almond milk, PBJ, canned beans on saltines, and hummus on melba toast!!! I'm just so tired when I get home from work, and m... Read more

This weekend will be my first back-to-back long bicycle ride of the year. I'll probably ride 60 miles on Saturday, then 72 miles on Sunday. I look forward to finding out how I'll feel after a back-to-back. I've got Ride the Rockies coming up ... Read more
Never Goin' Back Again
Monday, April 19, 2010      3 comments

As I walk around today, feeling all light and whatnot, and looking forward to feeling even lighter, I'm determined to never, ever, neverevernever, gain this weight back. Did I mention never? I've been this weight (and lighter) before, in t... Read more
Steady as She Goes
Sunday, April 18, 2010      7 comments

I'm about half-way to current goal. I weighed in at 156.5 this morning, down 1.5 since last week. I actually got two readings on the scale... the first one was 154, but I didn't believe it, so I weighed two more times for a consistent 156.5 (w... Read more
Back to Hiking
Saturday, April 17, 2010      3 comments

I went on an awesome hike this morning... 8 miles in the Huachuca Mountains. The Spring melt had the streams bubbling over, and it was just beautiful up there! I've really missed hiking! One of the reasons I haven't hiked so much in recent ye... Read more

I want to talk about my beloved Sady Girl, our family dog of 14 years. Sady passed on yesterday, and today I am sad and missing her. I'm also working through feelings of guilt because I didn't check in with her before I left for work yesterday... Read more
This is the ONE
Thursday, April 08, 2010      4 comments

This is the chapter of my weight management journey that will be the beginning of the rest of my life as a "normal-weight." I've been at this since I was 12 years old. I would have been "struggling" with weight sooner had I known anything abou... Read more
People are Starting to Notice
Tuesday, April 06, 2010      7 comments

People are starting to notice that I've lost a little weight. There's a sort of high in that I think :-) When they ask how much I've lost, I always have to stop and think. That's very strange for me; used to be I could tell you to the ounce w... Read more
Cooking is my Nemesis
Wednesday, March 31, 2010      1 comments

Here it is Wednesday, and I still haven't made up for the cooking I didn't do on the weekend. I wonder why I hate cooking so much. I was almost enjoying it when I first started the E2 diet, but it seems I've reverted back to my old mindset. I... Read more
My Karma's Off
Monday, March 29, 2010      2 comments

Ever have one of those days? I'm having one. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, feel quite "snippy," and feel that same energy coming back at me (I'm not inviting the good stuff). I'm so glad days like this are rare! ... Read more
Increase Calories When the Body Says To (but keep it healthy)
Monday, March 29, 2010      1 comments

I was hungry all last week and found myself eating more than usual. I kept everything pretty healthy, definitely vegan, but went over calories every single day. I've guestimated a top-end calorie range of about 1750, and most days I was closer... Read more
Day 28 of the Engine 2 Diet
Friday, March 12, 2010      6 comments

Today is my day 28 of the E2 Diet... this is how long I committed to. Except for the pizza crust that contained cheese (two Fridays in a row), I've stuck to the diet pretty well! I won't know until weigh-in tomorrow how much weight I lost in t... Read more
Time for Recovery
Wednesday, March 10, 2010      3 comments

I set my alarm for 0500 so I could get up this morning and go to Spin class. Wednesdays are split double-Spin days, a class before work at 0500, then another class after work at 1730. I don't even remember my alarm going off this morning, and ... Read more
