Out on my usual Saturday morning run. Tired, but not unusually so - generally by 7:30am on Sat mornings I've been awake for 22-23 hours already (transitioning from days off back to night shift, you know). About 2/3 of the way through my run. Aa... Read more

I'm referring, of course, to my work-schedule "weekend," which is Wed-Thurs. Delicious food, cake, good feelings all around. I'm going to be a little scared to step on the scale come next Thursday, though - I'm not sure I want to know how much d... Read more

The lack of pants I can wear without a belt led me to hit the local thrift store on Thursday for some additions to my wardrobe. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself fitting into 14s now - I came away with 5 pairs of pants, and every time I ... Read more

It was lovely and sunny this morning when I got off work, I have a new jogging outfit, and I was feeling a bit adventurous, so I decided to change up my route a bit. I jogged the first 1.5mi as usual, then detoured over to the local park, which... Read more

Around the time of my 29th birthday, I decided I was going to be 200lbs or less by the time my 30th rolled around. Because that three decade mark is magical, or something. xD My birthday is at the end of May, and this morning I weighed in ... Read more

As of today's weigh-in, my BMI is 29.3 - which means I'm (just barely) no longer obese for the first time since before I hit puberty. I am seriously giddy right now. Just... WOW. I've been making tons of progress in the last year+, but som... Read more

I braved the Monday morning traffic for 3 miles of pure, uninterrupted jogging. I'm very proud of myself. I managed to curb my anxiety by internally saying "$&#% you, and you, and @#%# you," at every car and person I passed. #not... Read more

Wednesday night I jogged further than I've ever jogged before - 2.2 miles. I was thrilled with my progress. Thursday night, I did it again. I felt like I was walking on clouds afterwards (my legs were a bit wobbly after all ... Read more
