Feeling better about eating more food now!
Friday, June 29, 2012      3 comments

Finding out that my body fat is so dangerously low (11%!!) the other day has really helped me feel better about eating more and cutting back on my cardio. Even though my doctors told me to gain weight/reduce cardio/stop running long distances, I... Read more

I went to see my gynecologist yesterday, since I "failed" the progesterone challenge - taking a progesterone supplement to make me start having a period again. Didn't work. So I went and talked to my doctor yesterday, and he ordered various blo... Read more
Struggling to accept having to gain weight

I've done a fair bit of crying recently, because even though my doctor told me I need to gain weight and reduce my cardio in order to be healthy and start having periods's hard to consider gaining weight back when I've worked so hard ... Read more
Doctor says I need to gain weight and cut back on cardio

Sigh. I knew it. I did. And I agree. But it's still difficult to hear that and not worry that I'll go too far back in the wrong direction and get fat again. I had a check-up today, and my blood work was great and everything, but we tal... Read more
Ran 16.27 miles, yelled at a dog :)

So on the heels of my dog bite from a week and a half ago, I am a bit leery around unleashed dogs. While I was out on my run this morning, I had a number of dogs bark at me, but there were two at one house that weren't leashed or contained in an... Read more

I got some beets from the farmer's market the other day, and I have no idea what one does with beets. I could (and will) do a recipe search, but I was wondering if anyone on SP had any particular recommendations. I'm looking forward to doin... Read more

It was AWESOME. I mean, I mostly spent the day settling in to my new office and getting things set up...and I didn't do a whole lot of real work. But it was WONDERFUL to just be left alone, for once. My previous position in th... Read more
Rest days
Saturday, June 16, 2012      0 comments

I have a problem with rest days. I have a really hard time accepting that there can be days where I just take easy/short walks or something light like that as my activity. I simply can't take a day where I don't do ANYTHING active, but I keep sh... Read more

First off, I ran another unofficial half marathon today! 13.27 miles, actually. I didn't exactly intend to; I was shooting more for 9 or maybe 10, but the weather was so nice and I was actually feeling really good once I got going, so I kept goi... Read more
A possible extra weight-loss perk?

I had an interesting conversation today with someone who is basically a stranger, though we've exchanged "hi" a couple times. I'm not pinning all my hopes on the outcome or anything, but it COULD be something pretty exciting. So there’s thi... Read more

I'm literally only blogging because I want to push my SparkPoints total a bit higher. Is that pathetic? :) I felt okay today, hunger-wise, but my legs (particularly the knees) were tired and I'm feeling a little burned out. I've been dreadi... Read more
I finally saw a number on the scale that made me unhappy
Sunday, June 03, 2012      4 comments

Because it was TOO low. I mean, I'm in no danger of dropping too low in body fat. My BMI is still like 21.3 or something like that. I have a belly. I'm 5'4"...I can handle losing more. But the scale this morning said 123.6, and that is lowe... Read more
OMG look how far I ran!!

So recently I was thinking that I could maybe run a half marathon sometime, since I've recently done some long runs of 11.7 and 11.85 miles, and it's not that much further to 13.1 from there. Today, I was off from work and thought I would d... Read more
