So I'm back to spark-ing! Huzzah. My Halloween 5k is on Sunday. I'm excited to see how far I can run and how fast. I'm pretty sure it'll be slower than in July, but whatever. Bob and Lindsey are running too, which will be a riot. Back ... Read more

I've reached a wall where there is just no way I can count calories anymore. Like, I physically can't handle doing it anymore. I've maintained my 148 pounds now for two months now, which is awesome. And though I'd love to lose another 8-15 pound... Read more

Check-in time. I went back to the gym last night, after weeks of theatre madness and no time at all go hit the treadmill. I ran and worked out and it hurt, and I have 26 days until another 5k I'm enrolled in. Let's see if I can do it. ... Read more

Around, vaguely. I'm simply too busy to even log-in to sparkpeople most days, though I am watching what I eat and trying to get to the gym as much as possible. I'm also making serious life changes. More to come on that in the future. ... Read more

Day 222: Unstoppable
Monday, August 18, 2008      1 comments

It's official. I cannot stay within my reccomended calorie range anymore. I vowed to do it today, then ruined it with fries and chocolate. I'm such an emotional eater, and sometimes even though I know I'll hate myself later, I can't stop! I... Read more

....TO RUN TONIGHT. Seriously. I've spent the last two days in a battle against Bank of America (who, in all seriousness, lost a money order I deposited.) and crying a lot. It's a very weird time right now. I'm not really sure how much long... Read more

Sunday, August 10, 2008      0 comments

Today, while running, I remembered why I like running. For a few minutes, I can shut out the world. And it's the nicest feeling ever. Only I can screw myself when it comes to running. I need to remember this next time I get too overwhelm... Read more

I read something yesterday that made me think. It said you should find a safe place and confess things, in order to get them out in the open and purge them from your psyche. So, for fun. :) 1. I'm an emotional eater - Combine this... Read more

Woot. So my first 5k is on Sunday morning (bright and early at 7:30am.. seriously.) and it had been bothering me that I hadn't yet run more than 2 miles... so last night, after a spectacular rehearsal, I went to the gym, plugged in my earbu... Read more
