So, I've been on a short tour (2 months). I did well for the first couple of weeks, with exercise at least, and tried to eat healthily. And then I got sick. With a chest cold. For 3+ weeks. So, I've been very much off the wagon for the rest of ... Read more
Tour plan snag
So, the 1 week on my plan worked out alright, in the sense that I didn't gain any weight. And I followed my workout schedule consistently and did alright with the hotel breakfasts (cereal, yogurt, cottage cheese, fruit). But it was tech, which m... Read more
Quick blog update
Okay, so I don't have a lot of time to write, since I should be out running errands, doing laundry, working out, and packing. Aka, everything I do the day before I fly out, every time I travel. But yeah, I just need to put some things into writi... Read more
I was so close!
Okay, so I let myself slide yesterday. And kind of started to today.
Yesterday was the Fourth of July, and while the beginning of the day went fine, my friend's cookout where we watched fireworks from the roof was . . . awesome! But not fo... Read more
Excuse vs. Rebuttal vs. Planning
Ok, so I've been terribly lax both about tracking my food and getting exercise in for most of July. I think I've worked out maybe 3 times this month (dedicated workouts, not at-work moving around, which for most of my job involves a lot of walki... Read more

I ran over a mile!
So, today was nice out and I didn't have work. I decided to go for a run. I looked on the fitness map tool and apparently there's a park not too far from me. So I decided to run to the park, around it and back (giant loop). I came back and mappe... Read more
Well, so much for having a light work week last week. I picked up some extra gigs (good for bank account, not so good for rest and recovery). The good thing is that they were both work calls with medium to high levels of physical work. And I tri... Read more
Slip up, up north
So, I went on a little road trip up north to visit family this week. The drive is only about 5 hours, but I have a history of trouble staying awake while driving. This time, totally prepared. I had my coffee, my water, my book on tape (Tina Fey'... Read more
Finally hit the recommended protein quota for the day for the first or second time since I joined SP 10 days ago. Don't know why it's so hard, but I'm researching more ways to add more protein into my diet.
Another small victory. Had the m... Read more
