In January, I wrote about a marathon that I had signed up for and never trained. At that point, I had 6 weeks to go before the race, and was really wanting to run it. In the end, I decided to play it safe and not run it. But, as I said, 5... Read more

Well, life got hectic for a little while. I know this is no excuse to stop paying attention to what I eat - in fact, it's probably more of a reason to, but something had to give and it ended up being my tracking. Excuses aside, I'm back to... Read more

I have had two bad days in a row. The delicious snacks and not eating dinner before did me in at the Super Bowl get together Sunday evening, and yesterday I was stressed and indulgent. After a quick run, the fiance and I went to Famous Dave's,... Read more

During lunch, as I peeled a grapefruit, I got to thinking about this Grapefruit Diet my mother went on once or twice when I was younger. I can't remember what it consisted of, except eating a lot of grapefruit. Then I got to thinking about... Read more

I've heard it takes three weeks to form a habit. Well, I'm 1.5 weeks into trying to form a few good ones. I've tracked my food and exercise everyday, and that hasn't been too tough. Finding time to fit the exercise in takes a little work, but ... Read more

Yesterday, I was terribly unfocused and maybe a little overwhelmed with everything that I have going on - house renovation, work, wedding planning, DIY details, second-guessing decisions. It seems like the only thing I could focus on was the ba... Read more

Before I even get started, I'm going to admit this is a bad idea. 6 weeks until the marathon, and I'm just now starting to train? Yes, I'm that crazy. Where do I even start? Back in 2008, when I was on Weight Watchers for the first time,... Read more
