What kind of person am I?
Monday, February 26, 2007      0 comments

My new project is to stop making self-limiting statements that let myself off the hook. I won't say that "I'm not a math person" just so I don't have to think about it. I will take ownership for the choices I make in what I attend to. Similar... Read more
Quick post

Just a quick post before I get started on a DiscoveryHealth podcast exercise video. It's great. Doable and makes my whole body feel tired.... Read more
Warning, whining and complaining ahead

I'll know I've lost weight when the first thing to wear out on a pair of jeans is something other than the thighs. Another pair is on the verge of becoming indecent, so I tried to go jeans-shopping yesterday. All I want is a pair that won't fa... Read more

My housemate just got back from a conference and he brought back all kinds of weight-loss materials that he is all excited about. So now all of us have charts on the fridge to track our water-drinking, eating and exercises. Plus a magnet that ... Read more
The good and the bad
Saturday, January 20, 2007      0 comments

Good: I run three times a week. I do crunches every day, and other strength exercises. I eat mostly healthy things- lots of vegetables, whole grains. I have a job. Bad: I'm not very consistent (read: I don't) at stretch... Read more
Running
Saturday, January 13, 2007      0 comments

Three days of jogging this week. It's all good so far. Actually, trying to follow the Spark to 10K plan was a little difficult because I wanted to run more and walk less. But I figured that starting slow is usually a good course of action, so... Read more
Sparking My Way
Tuesday, January 09, 2007      0 comments

Today I started Sparking my way to a 10K. I don't actually have a 10K in mind, but the program should give me structure as I start running. Wednesday, I'm going to try running after work, and maybe it won't be quite as dark as running before w... Read more
Bad Choice

Last night I made a conscious decision to binge. It was so weird. I didn't want to eat, but I felt like I needed to punish myself for feeling upset.... Read more
Bitter and Sweet
Thursday, January 04, 2007      0 comments

So, I went to Boston before Christmas for a reunion with my college housemates. The first thing one of them said when we met her at the airport was "we all look just the same". She said it delightedly, and meant it in the nicest way: these a... Read more
Community Team
Monday, December 18, 2006      1 comments

Today is my first day on the Community Team. I hope I can keep up with it. I have been doing reasonably well, with a few out-of-control days. Don't really know what sort of progress I've had, as I've been without a scale for about a month. A... Read more
So Irrational!
Saturday, November 25, 2006      0 comments

As I mention in my introduction, making good choices makes me feel good and want to make more good choices. So, I know that. Why, then, do I make bad choices. If, for whatever reason, I don't feel very well, my response is just to throw more ... Read more

I am going to really need to commit in order to keep getting my exercise in now that I am working. It isn't that I don't have enough time, but just that I come home so tired. It does amount to six hours of standing, which is better than sittin... Read more

I can't wait until making healthy choices is second nature and not something I have to think about. As it is now, I really want to track my nutrition right away. I feel stressed about making sure I meet my goals and challenges, instead of just... Read more
Tomorrow
Sunday, September 24, 2006      0 comments

I will go unicycling up the ridge tomorrow, just as soon as I get up and eat a healthy breakfast and drink some water. It just may be the case that I have to post it here to make it a reality, but if so, that's what I'm doing.... Read more
Whoops
Thursday, September 14, 2006      0 comments

Well, I broke my pledge, using the excuse that I'm still sore from the last time I unicycled up the ridge and that I was already planning to walk to the grocery store. No good. But I did round people up to make a tennis date for tomorrow, so t... Read more
