Missing: My Butt
Wednesday, August 22, 2012      14 comments

NO REWARD FOR RETURN!!! haha So, I work at the University as a researcher, and one of the (many) perks is that I don't have a dress code. I work in jeans and a t-shirt most days. So, my jeans have been feeling looser, but I haven't ... Read more

Well, the doctor told me yesterday that my super low blood pressure is likely caused by dehydration (heat exhaustion) from Belgium's recent heat wave, added to the BP lowering action of the beta blocker I am on (for an irregular heart rhythm). ... Read more

Well my BP this morning was still super low, 80/40, so I made an appointment to see the doctor during lunch. I'll have that looked at ASAP.... because I certainly didn't feel well last night! I am feeling a little better today, though. I... Read more

Woke up about 90 minutes ago with the start of a migraine. Got it in time with meds, and my head feels better. Then started having pain in my veins(arteries?) in my arm and decided I needed to check my blood pressure. 80/40 - yikes. I have... Read more

My joint pain went away 2 years ago when I found out I was allergic to milk protein (after I went vegan). Some of my joint pain has been coming back over the past couple weeks, and I am starting to suspect a new allergy (wheat or soy being the... Read more

So I hit it. I hit my 20 lb total goal this week! Despite this being one of my lower loss weeks (as per my hormonal pattern), despite nearly losing it and failing to track my food this week, and despite having a mini-vacation to the land of w... Read more

getting back into the swing of things
Wednesday, August 15, 2012      5 comments

It just goes to show how easily a good habit can be broken.... 5 days without SP while I was away, and now I'm having a hard time getting back into it. I haven't tracked my food or other goals since I came back, I haven't gotten any log-in poi... Read more

So my little trip to Italy was beautiful. Beautiful weather, beautiful beach (even though I am not really a 'beach' person), beautiful surroundings (PHEBESS was right - the colors of those houses on Burano were magnificent!). I followed... Read more

So I'll be in Italy for 4ish days: I fly in tomorrow night, and I'll be there THURS, FRI, SAT, and I leave Sunday mid-afternoon. This is my plan to still enjoy, while not wrecking my diet progress. Hopefully I will still lose even. :-) ... Read more
it is a hard fall from the wagon.... but getting back on again
Tuesday, August 07, 2012      5 comments

Well yesterday, and to some extent the whole weekend, was pretty depressing for me. On top of my finger acting up (I'm still worried about it, though it seems like it might be getting better), I've been pretty hormonal and home alone (my partne... Read more
joint pain....ugh
Sunday, August 05, 2012      6 comments

Some of you may have seen posts I've made about my history of joint pain. For the better part of 15 years, I've had severe joint pain. Starting in my lower back vertebra, moving to my knees and a little bit in my toes, and most recently in my... Read more
running with myself (not to be confused with the Billy Idol tune)
Sunday, August 05, 2012      6 comments

"Well there's nothing to lose And there's nothing to prove I'll be running with myself" My partner is away on vacation with her mom in Italy - I couldn't take vacation days to go the whole time, so I am going to meet them next weekend. ... Read more
