I went to a personal trainer on Friday night -- and she kicked my ass. Like, it's Monday morning and I can still feel it. I also discovered (or rather, confirmed, since I was vaguely sure of it already) that my digital scale is ... crap. So, th... Read more

I took a mental health day yesterday, and though it wasn't terribly relaxing, it WAS terribly productive (and GASP! I actually have time to relax this weekend...amazing, no?) I got a ton of stuff accomplished. This includes going to the gym... Read more

So I won't be updating tomorrow, as I'm taking a much-needed mental health day. I don't think it's a big secret that for some reason my job is currently stressing me out - and my other/real life is piling up, too. SO -- To counteract... Read more
Day 21

Oh Lord... I'm falling in love with the gym. Seriously, yesterday was stressful at work - so I went to Ballys, did some cardio, and got all that out of my system. Then I went home, had some soup, and ignored the State of Union addr... Read more

Well, this whole week I've been BEATING myself up for a few tiny splurges - a hot chocolate, one of Annie's famous cupcakes, and last night at our callbacks, a small sugar cookie. BUT, apparently all the rest of my hard work paid off (being a fo... Read more

Well, last night - AFTER work and AFTER rehearsal, I went to the gym. And thank goodness I did, because it felt great. Surprisingly, Miss Annie joined me, storming up to me and leaping on a treadmill and clearly along for the ride. H... Read more

Blar. So I'm a mopey girl today, and moped at work and moped at Target... and then I get the following email from my dear darling Mother. "You're in the 2-week dump now. Your body has decided "ok, enough of this famine business, I'M HUN... Read more

Oh, weekendzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. The Good: I joined Ballys and had my first workout, and it felt great. That said, ooh do I need some new workout clothes. Realized at about minute 12 on the stationary bike that my trusty black dance pants h... Read more

Oh, Superstress Day 2 - ...but at least I had a moment in the madness of last night to go grab some healthy groceries so that when I choose to drown my sorrows in food today, it can be broccoli and carrots. I didn't cave yesterday - instea... Read more
Day 8. Superstress.
Wednesday, January 16, 2008      2 comments

I had my first weigh-in this morning and was successful...which made me happy...until now. I'm completely stressed at work today. Like, to the point of almost in tears stressed. It's all very complicated - except that.. I'm a receptionist. All ... Read more

SOOOO --- my first weekly weigh in is tomorrow, and I'm excited. And nervous. If I did all this work and GAINED weight, I might kill someone. :) ALSO EXCITED BECAUSE - I took a trip to Target (ah, a mile walk at lunch, hooray) and bought so... Read more

Monday, January 14, 2008      2 comments

"I get by with a little help from my friends..." sang The Beatles, and it's so totally true. Ellemac7 and I run a theatre company together, and have now found ourselves being sparkpeopleobsessed together, and thank goodness - because we had two ... Read more
Day 4. (I told you it was one day at a time, didn't I?)
Friday, January 11, 2008      0 comments

Yesterday was our crazy fabulous work event at the Marriott - and I was terrified that I'd go nuts and eat everything in the place. But I didn't, and thanks to my nutritional research I felt a step ahead of myself, keeping with red wine instead ... Read more
Day 3.
Thursday, January 10, 2008      1 comments

Managed again to get up early - 6:30 and be out the door at 7, which got me to work unstressed and in plenty of time. ....But minor sadness - when I joined SP, I didn't have access to a scale.. so I estimated my starting weight. Well, yest... Read more
Day 2. Of many to come.
Wednesday, January 09, 2008      0 comments

So normally I have this issue where I CAN NOT get out of bed in the morning. I need to leave my apartment at 7:00, and lately I've been getting up at 7:00 and just diving out the door pretty much. This means I'm always stressed right from the ge... Read more
