Rockin' the Cardio Tracker

Take THAT, cardio! I kinda love seeing that big block of red text telling me I've done more than I intended. Unfortunately, I've also been eating more than I in... Read more
More Cooking Adventures!
Monday, January 16, 2012      2 comments

Cooking really is a magical thing. How you can take a bunch of raw ingredients, mash them together, and come out with something that looks nor tastes anything like what you put in there is a fascinating process. As a kid, my mom used to ma... Read more
Adios, AJ

I meet with my trainer Monday mornings at 630AM. He has someone else at 6AM. He is sometimes ~5 minutes late for my session, but it hasn't really been a problem. Well, apparently, he's been screwing the poor 6AM session entirely and he's been ge... Read more
A New Kind of Weekend
Monday, January 09, 2012      3 comments

I'm good with a routine. Wake up, gym, water, healthy breakfast, water, work, water, healthy lunch, water, work, water, healthy snack, water. Dinner is the only iffy part of a regular work day. Was I a good little girl and did I cook over the we... Read more
Climbing Mount Overpacked Closet
Saturday, January 07, 2012      3 comments

I live alone in a pretty good sized house, and every closet is packed. When you have everything in every size from 10 to 18, well, that takes up a lot of room. There are pants that haven't fit since my size 10 days that I hold on to becaus... Read more
What Are Limited Pants?
Wednesday, January 04, 2012      5 comments

I gushed here about finally being able to buy pants from The Limited. Yay! Actually, two pairs from Ann Taylor and a pair from The Limited has me feeling pretty good right now, even if the number on the scale isn't cooperating. This mornin... Read more
Cardio ADD
Thursday, December 29, 2011      0 comments

This morning was my first trip to the gym in a week. Boy did I need it, but boy did I dread it. I intended to run, but I didn't think my stomach would cooperate, so it was a Cardio ADD day ... that means 15 minutes per machine - elliptical, rowe... Read more
Well That Was Weird
Wednesday, December 28, 2011      4 comments

We all have our stores where we know we'll buy a bunch of stuff. I have recently re-discovered The Limited. I *love* their dresses and tops. But pants from The Limited are, well, off limits. I went into the store and I found some cute tops, pick... Read more
Weekends Are Awesome
Monday, December 12, 2011      0 comments

The good: - I was in Boston last week, but went to the hotel gym twice, so go me! - I ate reasonably healthy while on travel aside from a yummy dessert and a bit too much snacking - My friends came into town Friday afternoon (the... Read more
5Ks are SOOOOOOOO Much Better Than Half Marathons
Monday, December 05, 2011      4 comments

Yesterday I did the Run With Santa 5K in Reston, Virginia. It was my first race since October 1st, the half marathon. Let me tell you. 5Ks are so much more my speed it's ridiculous. I was mildly nervous about the 5K just because I ha... Read more
Aiight, December. Let's Do This.
Thursday, December 01, 2011      1 comments

I've learned enough about myself in this process to know that I don't respond well to challenges or competitions, so I'm not going to join any Do/Don't Do or Eat/Don't Eat type things. If I were to join a Don't Eat Any Sugar Until XX challenge, ... Read more
Today's Happy
Tuesday, November 29, 2011      0 comments

Almost a year ago, after eight years wearing jeans and t-shirts to work every day, I took a job in a more traditional office. That meant I had to go buy some freakin' pants. Some of the first ones I bought were from Kohl's in size 16. They were ... Read more
WTF Happened to November?
Monday, November 28, 2011      2 comments

Forgive me, SparkPeople, for I have sinned. It's been 12 days since my last post. OK, so I haven't gone totally off the rails, but it's been an insanely busy few weeks. Taipei was an interesting experience. After the week-long confer... Read more

I've basically given up on photographing my food. Some of it hasn't been stellar, but it's been OK and I have been going to the hotel gym. It's been mostly breakfast at the hotel (included, convenient, HUGE buffet where I have been eating too mu... Read more
Fake Turkey Is Gross
Thursday, November 10, 2011      1 comments

Generally speaking, I am a fan of whole foods. Foods found in nature. Foods that grew on trees or bushes or in the ground. Food gatherers may have consumed back in the day. (For the most part. I'm still eating bananas in November, after all.) ... Read more
