So. I didn't meet my goals today. No exercise beyond PT (it's hard since that is already a major time suck). Way over calories (not exactly sure why, but it's a combo of lunch out (even though I made good choices, salmon over Caesar salad), Shab... Read more
Let's review how today went.
- fit in a walk and time for myself before my intensive afternoon of interviews
- got an allergy shot!!!
- ate a healthy breakfast (oatmeal and hard boiled egg), lunch (supermarket sushi), and dinner (BFD... Read more
I realized that more and more, lately, I've been reaching for the sweets. There are so many excuses: Jewish High Holy days and the family dinners that come with it. Birthday parties. My own love of baking. A little something to wind down with be... Read more
For the last month, I've been more or less phoning it in to Spark. I've had a long birthday weekend, two trips, two kids starting school, three work projects piled on top of each other, and a refrigerator on the fritz. I've mostly tracked my foo... Read more
Friends, I am tired.
I think I've written this in every blog post I've made for the past few months. Not the fatigue of not getting enough sleep, not the pleasant muscle tiredness after a long workout. I'm existentially tired of all the stu... Read more
Sometimes, weighing in is so confusing!
See, I don't own a scale. I have had an adversarial relationship with it for many years, and ultimately, it was time for a breakup. So when it broke, out it went.
Now I weigh in at the gym. That... Read more

Yesterday was one of my extra-long days at work: Get up at 5:45, out of the house by 7am, at work by 8 (ok, so it was 8:30), run usability sessions all day long from 9-5 with a 1-hour lunch-break, debrief, clean up everything, leave the office a... Read more
Summer is going by so fast! Here is a partial list of things I want to do before summer is over:
😎 go stand up paddle boarding – date set! This will be a week from Sunday morning while the kids stay at my parents' house.
😎 eat ... Read more
So, today I gained about 3/4 of a pound since Wednesday's weigh in. I've been doing great with food and exercise, but I did eat out yesterday, so I think it's probably mostly water gain. Nevertheless, discouraging.
(I know it's not reco... Read more
I have benefited so much from the new and improved Spark since I returned to this site for real in April. My favorite thing about it is the Friend Feed.
Every day, I start the morning by surfing through the Friend Feed. It is inspiring to ... Read more
Yesterday was my first 5k!
I have been looking forward to this day for over a year. As a kid, I always hated running; but as an adult, it looks like fun to have some exercise that can be done solo, with minimal equipment, in a beautiful locati... Read more
So, I really turned up the juice last week.
I increased exercise intensity, and got in at least three really good strength workouts.
I worked hard on my running, including a couple of "long" (5k distance) runs and a speed workout.

An excellent day from a weight-loss perspective!
Relatively low calorie breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner. I was home working, or trying to work, most of the day, and headed to the gym at 5 PM. Despite my snack of cottage cheese and fruit, an... Read more
So ... still trying to bust through my plateau.
Friday was a really busy day. Preschool graduation in the morning(!!!), then a 45-minute drive to Santa Monica for a professional meeting, then back home and Shabbat dinner with the family. I... Read more
