Some Good News
Monday, July 09, 2012      4 comments

After some yo-yo action on the scale, this week I was finally back down where I started a month ago. I'm happy to be back down, but annoyed with the yo-yo (see yesterday's post). This morning I had my regular weigh-in with Neil. The gym sc... Read more

After a few successful shopping trips (and a few compliments from friends) I'm feeling pretty good lately. But the scale hasn't really been budging. In fact it had gone up over the last few weeks. I buckled down and got back to work becaus... Read more

Miracles happen. After trying on about 40 pairs of jeans that were terrible (no, I'm not exaggerating), I finally found a pair that fits! But it gets better. Check this out. ... Read more
Jeans = The Devil
Friday, July 06, 2012      6 comments

For me, finding pants that fit are THE WORST form of shopping. Freakishly short legs, proportionally tiny waist, giant hips, more junk in the trunk than I care to contemplate ... the legs are too long, they're too low-waisted, they're too high-w... Read more
Race Report - *SOCLOSE*

I felt pretty good heading into the Firecracker 5K yesterday. I wasn't anticipating it being a record-breaking event or anything, but I felt good and strong and ready to tackle it. Mile 1 usually goes by pretty fast for me. And it did. 12 ... Read more

I got a little lazy. I found vegan junk food. I ate out a lot. I exercised a little. I skipped proper meals in favor of snacking all day long (and never feeling full because I hadn't had an actual plate of healthy food). The scale cr... Read more

One of the things I miss the most about my pre-vegan days is yogurt. I loved greek yogurt and ate it just about every single day. Since going vegan four months ago, I have been experimenting with various kinds of soy yogurt. It's just not the sa... Read more
Ropes Course!
Sunday, June 24, 2012      1 comments

Yesterday I spent about four hours on a ropes course in Maryland. I had no idea how difficult it would be! The courses are color coded - Purple, Yellow, Green, Blue, Black, Double Black. Purple is for kids, yellow is considered easy, green... Read more

I was going to call this one Good News, Bad News, but then I realized ... it's all good news and who cares about the downside? I decided a little retail therapy session was in order at lunchtime and there just so happens to be an Ann Taylo... Read more
Muffiy Strong Like Bull!
Thursday, June 21, 2012      2 comments

My lower body is reasonably strong. Monday Neil focused on legs, and good lord I'm still sore. We did leg presses, forward, back and side lunges, squats, more dead lifts than I care to count, and these insane wall sits/squats standing on a BOSU ... Read more
Tomatoes Stuffed with Israeli Couscous Pilaf
Tuesday, June 19, 2012      2 comments

This. Is. Delicious. Thought I'd share. I made it as indicated, but added a handful of parsley to the couscous since I had it on the counter. It's really pretty stuffed into my farmers' market ridiculously delicious tomatoes, but hon... Read more

I gained 0.2 pounds last week. I'm not too concerned about it. Last week, I was in New Hampshire (with a brief field trip into Vermont). It was fantastic. It was hippie and extremely vegan-friendly and it's the first business trip I've bee... Read more

I was a little worried about last night's four-miler. 1. I haven't been running a whole lot lately. 2. When I have run, it's been about 2 miles, tops. 3. I am a morning runner, and this race started at 7PM. 4. I have food/st... Read more

(Sorry I started writing and it took a turn for the depressing.) The past few weeks have been challenging at best. One of my best friends is nearing the end of her battle with cancer, so I spend most of my nights and nearly all of my weeken... Read more
Body Weight Strength Training
Wednesday, May 23, 2012      4 comments

Neil has been on me to do more strength training after I managed to lose weight and gain body fat. He's right. I need to do more. So I found two workouts, both labeled 'beginner.' The first was three sets of this: 20 squats 10 ... Read more
