I have...9 weeks until the wedding. I had hoped to be at a weight about 20 pounds lighter than my current weight in time for the wedding. Now, with this new plateau I'm in.. I think I have to rethink that goal. Hmmm. However, I bought ... Read more

Remember when I used to blog here? My vanishing for the past few days has been entirely the fault of my running a theatre company who is kicking off their 2008 season next Monday with a three day festival of new short plays. I'm the produce... Read more

... I walked 2 miles at lunch today in the gorgeous weather. And I'm going to walk another .75 miles to a different bus to get home. And then Brent and I are going to the gym. And then I'm going grocery shopping. Sha-zam! Sometimes I... Read more

So I had an Everything Bagel with lite cream cheese today. Once in a while you have to cave to those old cravings. However, I countered this disaster with a 2 mile at walk in the beautiful, beautiful Chicago weather. It's 51 degrees... Read more

I've been hearing sparkpeople, hungrygirl, and a billion other sources going nuts for the Diet Coke cake phenomenon, and decided I had to try it - and what better occasion than the first time I'd seen Bob in a month. He's one of my dearest frien... Read more

...I took a half day yesterday and went home to lay on the couch since I was being attacked by the cramps that ate Chicago. It was a generally yucky kind of day - where I felt really bloated and depressed and thought eating cake would be a geni... Read more

This weekend was great, actually - I had a good rehearsal, did some shopping (lots of walking around downtown Chicago), ate healthy, and had a good time. I have 11 weeks until THE WEDDING - I'm wondering how much weight I can lose in that t... Read more

(Don't judge my rhyming!) Oh, I needed a weekend. So badly. This week has been walking on eggshells, crossing my fingers, and waiting for several miracles, and I think.. they're all resolved now. Mainly -- My Dad won his Social Securit... Read more

I like to cook. Thats the revelation I've had from all this nutrition and food talk over the past 55ish days. I made muffins last night. From scratch. Literally, I grabbed ingredients from my cupboards and altered a recipe I'd found here on... Read more

At the gym last night, I weighed in... at 165! Whee! And my gray pants, which were snug even when I bought them, are officially "baggy in the ass." - To quote my girls at work. To celebrate, I'm cleaning my room tonight (it NEEDS... Read more

...I need this terrible winter weather in Chicago to stop. I'm not normally a seasonal depression kind of gal, but this year... seriously. I think it's happening. Going to the gym tonight with the intention of blasting cheesy pop music unt... Read more

Well. So, I kinda figured with being SO good about all this for the past 50+ days, there had to be a "falling off the horse" moment. And that moment was this weekend. Now, to preface this, let me say that my theatre company had the playwri... Read more

I'm eating sugar-free jello at my desk. I just got back from a lunch trip to Target where I bought a belt, sugar-free maple syrup, and a copy of "Eat, Pray, Love." Go me. This weekend is going to be insane - since we have a playwright flyi... Read more
