Well, I'm finally on the upswing. I had strep a few weeks ago, finally started feeling better for about a week, and then got hit with a sinus infection that totally knocked me out. I couldn't breathe at all, I had a low grade fever on Monday of ... Read more
Still pregnant!

Okay well yea. Still pregnant. I hate being pregnant. I feel bad saying that sometimes because I know there are a lot of people out there who put themselves through hell to get pregnant, but I just hate it. I love the kid when it comes out, but.... Read more

Well...this pregnancy has definitely been different than my first. I can tell you one thing for certain, though - I am NEVER getting a flu shot again! I don't usually get them, I have a pretty good immune system as it is. I got one during my fir... Read more

This hasn't been a good month. Well...not food wise anyway. I found out shortly after my centennial ride that I'm pregnant (yay!) but this pregnancy is 100% different than my first. I'm NEVER hungry. With Max I was hungry ALL THE TIME and e... Read more
Centennial ride
Sunday, October 07, 2012      5 comments

Just got back from a 100 mile bike ride. Single stupidest and most awesome thing I've ever done in my life. On one hand, I was stupid enough to ride 100 miles in 30 degree weather on extremely rough terrain with NO training. On the other hand, I... Read more
My willpower slipped this week...

I made the mistake of keeping sugar in the house (fruit roll ups, to be exact) for my husband and son. I know I've eaten more of them than the two of them combined. This is not good. I was strong against cakes in the lounge on two different... Read more

...I wanted it baaad. We're talking like I could TASTE it before I even saw it. I walked into HyVee this morning to get a salad for lunch, and that delicious fried dough and sugar smell wafted to my face immediately. My salivary glands went... Read more
Feeling REALLY good!

I've had a string of really good days, pertaining to diet, renovations and life in general. Diet: I lost again this week! Down 2.2 from the past few weeks. Feeling really good about that. I feel a lot stronger and have so much more ene... Read more
No loss again, but interesting discoveries!
Sunday, September 09, 2012      3 comments

I did not lose again this week. I did have a piece of chocolate cake, and a few cookies this week, though. And those indulgences led to some interesting discoveries. I am fairly certain that sugar causes my migraines. I didn't have ANY migr... Read more
No weight loss

I wasn't very strict with myself this week. I allowed myself a few M&Ms here, a piece of candy there, a bite of real pizza or two...and I noticed first hand the effect. For the first time since seeing the nutritionist, I did not lose any weight.... Read more

This morning I spent my morning with sledge hammer in hand beating our bathroom floor to a gravel pulp :) Under our furnace, which is now in the bathroom we're redoing, there is a concrete platform that is about 2 inches higher than the rest of ... Read more
Temptation is an evil witch.

Temptation got the better of me TWICE yesterdday. During a meeting there were pretzel m&ms right in front of me, and I made it through the first 40 min just fine, but the last 10 min I found myself grabbing a handful of them! Ack! Then MIL ... Read more
Upping my mileage
Monday, August 27, 2012      1 comments

Jan and I did a 4 mile run this morning! Longest I've ever ran. We walked a total of maybe 1/4 mile - just at the end of 2 long climbs (like 9 block climbs). I was pretty proud of us. We did it in 50 min, which is a 12 1/2 min mile. Not too shab... Read more
A good week

I made it through my first week with students! It was actually a really good week. I have some big classes but they seem like REALLY good kids this year so I think it will be okay. Our 7th grade class last year was really awesome, and they're s... Read more
