My Achy (not breaky) Arms
Thursday, December 02, 2010      1 comments

My triceps are pleasantly achy today. I'm sad that my free training sessions are up at the gym. Jared the wannabe Canadian football player is much better at targeting what I want to train than I am. Guess that's why he gets the big bucks. ... Read more
I did it. I joined a gym.

I did it. I joined a gym and have already had my first lesson with the trainer. I told him my ultimate goal was to do pullups so he showed me the assisted pull up machine which I love love love!!! It is definitely a super cool tool and I've g... Read more
Me? A gym rat? Could happen.

I was talking to my old team lead at work and the subject of fitness and weight loss came up. She mentioned that a good percentage of our department haunts the Gold’s Gym around the corner and that got me to thinking. See, there’s nowhere ... Read more
Slimmer? No thanks. I'll have the stressor instead.

I woke up this morning feeling slimmer. My calorie intake over the last week has been great and that TOM should be just about over. But when I stepped on the scale, my heart plummeted. I gained half a pound. Really? Ok fine, but I f... Read more

I've discovered the one absolute factor every time I find myself successful at this healthy journey. A positive attitude. I don't know why this is such a surprise for me. You get what you put into something. If you go in with the d... Read more
Forget dreams - I want reality. Or why New Year's resolutions are bunk.
Monday, November 15, 2010      3 comments

The subject of New Year’s resolutions came up today and I have to confess I don’t understand why anyone would wait to change their behavior until the first day of the new year. I mean, I get why that particular time can lead to introspection an... Read more

I've known for a long time that I was wearing the wrong size bra, but I simply don't buy clothes online so I was making do with the largest size I could buy in the department store since even Victoria's Secret failed me. I knew I wasn't a DD an... Read more

So I ran last night after work. Ok, it was more of a weak shamble and I only went about a mile if you count the warmup and cool down. I could have run farther, but it was getting dark and I started making excuses for myself. I don't want ... Read more
I hear a race calling my name.
Tuesday, November 09, 2010      0 comments

So I'm really thinking about training for a race. It would mean starting at pretty much the beginning as I've been couch surfing for a year and a half but I miss the structure of race training. And I won't lie - the physical benefits don't suc... Read more
Day 2 of being a lunchtime vegetarian
Wednesday, September 22, 2010      2 comments

Today was day 2 of my lunchtime vegetarian experiment. I skipped the garden veggie soup because it seemed too filling and instead went for a small garden salad and a cup of fresh strawberries. I don't know if it will keep me going until dinner... Read more
A new challenge
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      0 comments

It seems if I can't do anything unless there's some sort of self-competition involved. I learned to run because I wanted to know I could run. I ran a half marathon so that I could say I was a real runner and to justify spending $80 on shoes an... Read more

So my office has this deal where you sign up for a Virgin Health Miles program and they send you a pedometer. The cool part is, they let you do the uploads from it right onto software preinstalled in our desktop computers and based on how many ... Read more

I decided that this week I would start making strides towards eating cleaner. My friend Linda and I are pretty competitive people so she joined up with me and now we're having a race to see who loses 10 pounds the fastest. I'm worried, because... Read more

Wow. Two months since my last blog entry. And in that two months, my world has changed drastically. I moved my family halfway across the state, started a new job, rented a house, sold a house, and spent a lot of time cleaning, unpacking and d... Read more
