There's a part-time position open at the Central Library for a YA librarian. Pros: It's more money. 30 hours a week instead of 40 might allow me to take an additional class per semester and finish my degree sooner. It's a YA position, som... Read more

I'm still moving forward. I did really, really terribly yesterday, coming in at 2300 calories eaten. But I'm on track today and I spent 30 minutes on the elliptical yesterday and today. If I'm particularly careful, I won't mess up the week wi... Read more
Starting Out

It's the new week and a new day. I slept really well, though that meant getting up a little later than expected. My iPod's been at work all weekend and was utterly dead when I got here, a disappointment for my workout after work, but I'll be o... Read more

So I weighed in this morning. Last time I'd weighed in was back in April and I was 162. This morning, I was 164. I'm pleased with this, honestly, because it means I haven't back-slid as much as I was afraid I had. This gives me a stable plat... Read more

I made black lentils and kidney beans for dinner tonight. Complete and utter success. Taste was out of this world, even if the sodium was kind of high. Great protein, great potassium, flavor that just wouldn't quit and a warm, buttery texture... Read more

It's been really hit and miss for me since the beginning of the year. I like to say it's just a day or just a rough week, but it's really been a rough six-months. It seems like since I hit 25 pounds lost, I haven't been as motivated to keep lo... Read more

My aunt is supposed to come visit tonight, but has so far gotten turned around on a cloverleaf and may not make it now. I'm on pins and needles, not sure if I should be excited or not and wishing desperately that she manages to find the place w... Read more
Rough Day...again

Just found out that all the things I need for a paper due on the 14th aren't readily accessible. I'm really stressed about trying to find sources for this paper, in addition to work deadlines and other class deadlines and exams looming on the h... Read more

I've logged in. I've posted to SparkGroups. I've answered trivia. I'm writing my blog entry. I'm back. I had an appointment with my allergist today, just a check-up to make sure things are okay. He's concerned that I'm having suc... Read more
The SparkWagon

I'm determined to get back on the SparkWagon. I fell off pretty hard in the last few months, especially during my bronchitis about a month ago. But I know I can do this, even if I won't do it by the wedding. I'm back to 162 and I've reset... Read more

This weekend, my weight was up to 170. What the heck. *long sigh* I swear, I know I can do this. It's just frustrating to back-slide like this.... Read more

Bolted from the house and managed a mile and a half at the gym today. Matched my best time for the mile: 13:30. Feeling pretty good! Though I'm a bit puzzled. I've input my calories for the day and I'm coming up short. I had my normal b... Read more

Yes. I blew it. I even looked my husband in the eye and ate it anyway. I binged horribly yesterday at the Super Bowl party. I ate five pieces of pizza and I lost count of the chicken wontons Nikki brought. I ate WAY more calories than... Read more

My weigh-in this morning was 166. Ian reminded me that this was my weight when we got married, seven years ago. I'm back to my wedding weight! *happy* Tomorrow marks the first day of the Spring semester. I'm nervous about trying to get ... Read more
5k Milestone
Tuesday, January 08, 2013      2 comments

Or is that a Km-stone? I dunno. Anyway. I ran a 5k in less than 45 minutes today! I'm pretty excited, since that beats my old time. I went to the gym before work today and just kept going until I reached 3.11 miles. I've already crosse... Read more
