Day 139: One Mission Accomplished
Tuesday, May 27, 2008      0 comments

The wedding all this started about is over - and it was, simply, the most fun ever. It was a reunion of five hardcore best friends who haven't all been in the same room in five years. It was reconnecting with people I missed terribly at 2am on ... Read more
Day 133: Poisoned!
Tuesday, May 20, 2008      1 comments

Yeah - I totally have food poisoning. From a veggie sandwich at Potbellys. It has to be the culprit. I woke up at 4am with chills and feeling like I needed to throw up - which I haven't.....yet. (It still feels like I could.) Ugh. I feel li... Read more
Day 132: The cold hard truth...
Monday, May 19, 2008      0 comments

So I've been super good about calories, running, doing strength training, living a more active lifestyle, and I've gained 2.5 pounds. Which I'm hoping/praying is muscle, but still... It's got me a little bothered. Thoughts?... Read more
Day 127: Okay - I'll blog sporatically
Wednesday, May 14, 2008      0 comments

Just thought I'd appear and offer some suggestions. :) MY WORKOUT PLAYLIST (ie, if you see me at the gym - im listening to these in some order) (and yes, I like cheesy pop music while I work out. Don't judge.) "What you want" from... Read more

Okay, I know I said I was on a sabbatical. But I went dress shopping this weekend. And bought this. And it's an 8. As were they all. Woot & Holla!... Read more
Day 122: Overwhelmed by Life
Friday, May 09, 2008      1 comments

Dear Friends - I am overwhelmed by life at present, and as such need to cut back on something. While Spark-ING isn't one of those things, Spark-BLOGGING (in addition to the other blog I maintain) is... I simply can't do everything. S... Read more

Thursday, May 08, 2008      0 comments

Hair? Cut. Check. Gym? Done. Check. 30 minutes on the elliptical while watching "Wife Swap." Holla. Calories? Totally good - and I had Panera. Awesome. 15 days until I leave for the wedding. These last 2 pounds until my first... Read more

Day 119 (Personal challenge Day 8)
Tuesday, May 06, 2008      1 comments

...Oh, I think I've lost my will to blog. :) I've been doing okay - staying inside my calorie range (if leaning to the upper side more than I'd like) and being fairly active. I'm taking a night off from all annoying responsibility and watch... Read more
115 (Personal Challenge Day 3)
Friday, May 02, 2008      0 comments

I did good. I negated to walk outside at lunch yesterday, but I ate super well - even if you count the 10:30pm Minestrone soup and rye toast I ate after my show. :) It was a much needed therapeutic outing with friends. It was at IHOP, too - so... Read more

....This personal challenge stuff is hard. Already. Yeah, I've seriously lost motivation. A lot. But sigh - I've got my gym bag, and it should be a nice enough day to go walk at lunch. Slow but steady wins the race, right? DAY 1 RECAP: ... Read more

Tuesday, April 29, 2008      2 comments

Yeah. It comes and goes. I didn't do very well, diet-wise, yesterday - but I rocked it out at the gym, so.... I guess you can't have everything. It's a nicer day in Chicago today, so I'm going to take a HUGE walk at lunch. Personal Challe... Read more
Day 111: Really?
Monday, April 28, 2008      2 comments

Life is too crazy at present to blog much - sorry, y'all. BUT I've been good the last few weeks, and it paid off when I weighed in at the gym on Saturday and came in at 152. If I get to 146, I'll have lost 40 pounds. Which is incredible. ... Read more
Day 107: Kick out the jams
Thursday, April 24, 2008      1 comments

Well - It was gorgeous yesterday, so I walked for 3 miles, which was nice. I almost do it for stress relief anymore as much as fitness. Then - after work, since it was my last night before another 4 show week of The Skriker, I went to the g... Read more
