It's the Food, Dummy.
I am five months away from turning 40.
(!!! Pause for momentary freak out !!!)
I've started to backslide after losing 30 pounds. That has to end. Turning 40 is momentous enough. I do NOT want to be 40 and still fat. Or fat again.

Pushing 40: The Reckoning
I made several goals for 2018, including to run a race every month. Some of those will coincide with my friend's race schedule. She is training for her first marathon this year. She is also 10 years younger than I am. So we signed up for a 10K o... Read more
Running Into 2018
One of my #8in18 goals is to run a race every month. That means I have to start running again. I KNOW, HOW OBSERVANT OF ME. :)
Last year I only did 2 races all year, and I haven't really run since the second one last September.
So I d... Read more

Obligatory 2018 Goals Post
First off, HEY STRANGERS! I swear I didn't fall off the wagon entirely, but I simply got out of the habit of blogging regularly. Let's fix that.
I set a simple goal for the holiday season - just don't gain. Well, that was a bit ambitious, ... Read more
Going Off the Rails On a Crazy Train ...
Thanks, Ozzy Osbourne, for the title.
This weekend got a little messy. I'm a homebody, see, but this weekend I packed all my social activities for the month into one weekend. And when I'm out of my house, I am off my game. Off my diet. Off... Read more
Last weekend, I went shopping. Though it's still upper 70s to mid 80s and 472989284% humidity (rough estimate), fall will be here eventually and I needed fall/winter clothes.
(Side note: A few weeks ago I posted about how I was having a ha... Read more
250 Day Streak - A Self Pep Talk
I've logged into this site every day for 250 days.
Obviously I've made huge progress, right?
Not so much.
I've lost roughly 7 pounds in just over 8 months. Not exactly lightning speed here.
I suppose a loss is ... Read more
The Backslide ... IS POSTPONED (And Meal Planning!)
I am home now and not going anywhere for ~7 weeks. Time to buckle down, again, and get things moving in the right direction. I did a bunch of meal prep on Friday which is KEY for me, and I'm back to class regularly. Gotta get back on the train. ... Read more
Ditching The Fat Clothes ...
I am a big believer in getting rid of 'fat clothes.' As soon as something is too big, off it goes to charity. Then if I start to backslide, I realize I have no pants left and I better put down the pizza and pick up some broccoli or I'm going to ... Read more
Out of Africa
Last week was kind of a mess. I was in South Africa (which was lovely!) but it's 26 hours of travel each way, plus jet lag, work stress, and too many social events that I can't really say no to.
1. Too much wine. But GOD I LOVE STELLENBOSC... Read more
39 and Feelin' Fine - 5 Good Things to Celebrate
Today is my 39th birthday!
I didn't hit my weight goal, and even though I knew it was a HUGE stretch and extremely unlikely, I'm still a bit disappointed in myself. BUT. I'm writing this to convince myself of my own awesomeness and shut up... Read more
Weight Loss Problems (The Good Kind, I Guess!)
I have an embarrassing backlog of dirty laundry piled up, so it was pretty slim pickins when I went to get dressed this morning. But I found a pair of pants I haven't worn in ages and they were always the tighter cut so I figured they'd be a bit... Read more
Need Advice: Not Hungry is a Thing??
A little background: I am not, nor have I ever been, one of those people who forgets to eat. I plan my days, my life, around food. And, honestly, even more so when I'm focused on my health. OK we can do x, but what will we have for lunch if we d... Read more

Frustrated and In Between Sizes
I mean, yes, the scale is a bit stuck at the moment, but I'm working on that part. But, practically speaking, I am stuck between sizes. In EVERYTHING.
I seem to be:
A Medium And A Half in shirts
A 33 in bras
An 11 ... Read more
