A Bean, A Green, A Grain

I have no intention of going vegan. I love yogurt, cheese, ice cream, milk, etc. WAY too much. However, I've been reading more about veganism and health choices and, truth be told, I do eat too much cheese so I'm trying to cut back a little bit.... Read more
Why Does Math Hate Me?

Let's focus on the good news first: At my monthly weigh-in with Paul today, the scale had me down two pounds. Woo hoo! Two pounds! Go me! I also lost some (quarter- and half-) inches on my hips, thighs, and calves. Woo hoo!... Read more
10 Miles ... Uphill, Both Ways!

Saturday, per the half-marathon training schedule, we had four miles on the calendar. My running partner and I met up as planned, but she wasn't feeling well so we decided to walk the whole thing. We threw in a little extra, so we ended up walki... Read more
I Cut The Cheese!

So, yesterday's lunch left me very unfulfilled. I had Reduced Guilt Trader Joe's frozen Mac & Cheese (which is actually pretty good!) and a banana. Of course, it was also birthday cake day, so I followed up my yellow lunch with a white sna... Read more
WTF Was That?

Boot camp is back outside. It's cold, but it's tolerable. Outside classes are tougher than indoor ones because we have more room to move and it usually involves a lot more cardio. Friday was BRUTAL, mostly because it was a lot of tricep dips and... Read more

Using a GPS-enabled iPhone app while still on a treadmill really confuses the poor little thing. In reality, per the treadmill, it was 1.8 miles in 30 minutes. Silly... Read more

After yesterday's weigh-in-and-measurements debacle, I'm feeling a bit ... off-kilter. And, to be honest, like I've wasted two months exercising and being overall behaved and seeing absolutely no progress because my body hates me. I've vowe... Read more
Paul Is Not Amused. (Neither Am I.)

Weigh-in and measurements today. Good news: Body fat went down 1.5%. That's it. The rest is bad news. A couple of measurements went down by 1/4 inch or so, but overall, nothing. And I managed to go UP 0.3 pounds on that scale. It's ve... Read more
The Ugly Truth

I come from a family of large people. We eat. Too much. We like sweets. We throw some vegetables in there every once in awhile, but we also eat out most of our meals, and at crappy low-quality chain restaurants. That's how I grew up. That's what... Read more

I do not know what's going on with me lately, but I am constantly hungry! And not I'm Bored/Sad/Angry/Avoiding Something Big/Stressed hungry-with-a-little-h, but actually physically stomach-rumbling Hungry. I wasn't eating right for awhile... Read more

Scale goes down, totally fine to squeal like a little girl. (And scare the crap out of the cats.) Scale goes up, no panicking. YAYYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY for the scale going down this morning! And that's after a 3-course not... Read more
Crushed ... For A Minute, Anyway

Sundays are weigh-in days. I had a good week, and I got on the scale Sunday morning and I looked at the number. Down a pound. A whole pound! THIS IS AWESOME!!! I was euphoric. Then I logged on to Spark and reali... Read more
Called Out ... And It Worked
Friday, January 28, 2011      2 comments

I feel like I've been eating everything in sight lately, and just this morning I realized why. (Hint: Being a girl sucks sometimes.) Since I haven't been eating super well, I haven't been exercising much. I made it to my PT session on Monda... Read more
It’s *Only* 13.1 Miles …

Some girlfriends and I have been talking about taking a girls’ trip to Disney forever and I think it would be a lot of fun. We’ve been talking about going to the Food & Wine Festival, in particular, and that sounds pretty awesome. (Since I’ve be... Read more
The Good, The Bad, and the Bipolar
Friday, January 14, 2011      2 comments

This all started when I walked into Lane Bryant, one of only a handful of stores I could shop in at all, and realized size 20 just wasn’t going to cut it. I got the 22s, put them on, and had an absolute complete mental breakdown in the fitting r... Read more
