Messages from the environment, my car, my coworkers, my mother, my cats, and my gastrointestinal track have all brought me to the conclusion that my life (emotionally and physically) has too much going on, too much "clutter", to run both efficie... Read more

On my way to work this morning, I notice that the screen of my phone appears to be different. All of my icons are in different places, and some are missing. Uh oh. That can't be good. [instant queasiness] I pull into Starbuck's lot ... Read more

From this past week of bad food choices and the ensuing gastrointestinal, mood, and bloat issues I am experiencing, I am reminded that "garbage in = garbage out". I feel icky.... Read more
Push, don't pull

Two things I have never been able to do, even at my high school weight of 150 lbs: full pushups (hands and toes, not hands and knees), and pull ups. I had an hour personal training session today, and my trainer gave me my first superset t... Read more

I am really having difficulty wrapping my head around a situation that I will face in November. I am having a torn meniscus "cleaned up" in my knee through arthroscopic surgery in November, and my physician said I would need to not exercise on ... Read more

Helicopter-blade-sized MegaFan-- you don't know who you're dealing with. I came. I conquered. I won. Bite me. ... Read more
Just a coupla more sweaty entries

Ok, so I finally managed to work so hard I maintained a drippy ring of sweat, even with the "helicopter fans" in full rotor! A woman in the locker room laughed as I frantically tried to capture the "effort" with my cameraphone (she knew the bac... Read more

As I commented on a Sparkfriend’s blog earlier today, date nights are a food pitfall for me. My DH loves Chinese food and restaurants that specialize in comfort food (translation--high fat and high calorie), and he rarely exercises any more. ... Read more
Stupid Mega-Fan

Sooo I was working out for the first time in a new gym that I joined the other day (I'm a member of 3--can anyone say *excess*?), and I realized that, after 45 minutes, I still was not producing a sweat-ring. I checked my HRM, and I was at 140+... Read more

I believe that there is an athlete inside me. I'm not talking about the transformation from sedentary to active person due to living more mindfully. Fitness has increased, no doubt. But this feeling is different. I swear there is an athlete ... Read more

I am slacking in my effort pics, but I keep forgetting to find a mirror immediately after working out. By the time I get home, the ring has diminished significantly and looks like I barely did anything. So here is my pic from Monday. The swea... Read more

I've created a new folder in the picture file on my computer. They are not "before" or "after" pics. They are not evidence of how far I've come or me in the new dress I can slink into. (Those will be forthcoming, trust me). These are going t... Read more

When I first joined, I thought it was funny that you got little points, rewards, and "trophies" from Sparkpeople for various accomplishments. For reading articles. For logging food. For simply drinking water. I didn't think i... Read more
Vegas and excess
Saturday, July 21, 2012      0 comments

Went to Vegas this past week and assumed I would not make the best choices in terms of food and alcohol during my stay. But hey, this is Vegas, right? Who really makes good choices while they're here? I had to have that attitude or the guilt ... Read more
