Why I'm not caring [about food] anymore.
Saturday, May 12, 2012      2 comments

For most of my time on SP, I've been trying to figure out exactly what the best way to eat is. I've tried vegetarianism, veganism, low-carb, smoothies, all-natural... but I'm sick of it, and I've decided not to care anymore. I've always tol... Read more
The Perks of Being a Tour Guide
Sunday, April 15, 2012      1 comments

Holy moly, let me tell you... when I signed up to be a tour guide in the city of Cincinnati, I knew I'd be walking a lot; however, I wasn't active on SP when I first started back in late summer 2011, so I had no idea how many Calories I was burn... Read more
Truthful Tuesday

I used to choose Wednesdays as my weigh-in day. (Hey, I like the alliteration of "weigh-in Wednesday"!) Well, I'm weighing in on Tuesdays now... just because... ...just because I weighed in today and got a dose of reality: 143 pounds ... Read more

It's Passover... and although this holiday has always been my favorite due to the food, I always falsely think to myself, "I can't eat any wheat, yeasted foods, and must keep kosher... there's no way I can over-eat!" False!! ... Read more

Forgive me, SparkPeople, for I have sinned. It has been nearly 13 months since my last SparkPeople log-in. But, I really think I'm back. Nearly four years ago to the day, I re-joined SP and kick-started what would be a 38-pound weight-... Read more

I need to stop lying to you all, and to myself as well. I have a hard time admitting my own faults especially to myself, but also to others. I always want to seem like the strong one, the person who can face adversity, and the person who can ove... Read more

[DAYS 5 & 6] I'm going to combine Saturday and Sunday into one report. I stayed relatively low in carbs for the day and proudly reached my Calorie intake range. I was pretty satisfied both days, not feeling hungry or over-stuffed. I did hav... Read more
Carb Redux - Day 4 (cont'd) & Today's Run
Saturday, March 12, 2011      1 comments

So, after eating a yummy low-carb dinner of grilled curry chicken with a side-salad (lettuce and balsamic vinegar) I totally splurged at the party I went to. My cupcake cones were a hit (and nobody knew they were low-carb!) but eating two of the... Read more

[DAY THREE] Yesterday I had a Yelp event to go to at an Italian restaurant I've been meaning to try for a while. There were going to be light appetizers and free wine. I figured I'd eat whatever the lowest-carb item is, and have one glass o... Read more

So, due to laziness, forgetfulness, and technical difficulties I only just uploaded Saturday's run to Runkeeper as I was uploading last night's run before going to bed yesterday. Anyway, here's the run-down (pun? haha). Saturday, 5 March 20... Read more

As if I wasn't already feeling a little less-than-pleased with my appearance (see yesterday's blog post) the scale wasn't too friendly today, either. 137.8 I mean, it's .8 pounds less than last Wednesay's sodium-induced gain, but it's ... Read more

Man, I really need to tone up. I saw a photo of myself and my teammates from this weekend's Cinciditarod race on a local news site... and holy hell, my thighs are still monstrous and they didn't airbrush my cellulite out! Yikes! ... Read more
The Craziest Weekend EVER
Monday, March 07, 2011      3 comments

The best way to describe Saturday is the following: Absolute insanity. I woke up an hour earlier than usual for my newly-rescheduled Saturday morning run. It was pouring outside, as expected, so it was a very very wet 7 miles! Luckily ... Read more

I had a very, very sensible breakfast and lunch today because I knew the office chili cook-off (which I entered) would provide me with a lot of other food to cram in my mouth. For breakfast I had my usual: oatmeal. I topped it with cinnamon... Read more
