But What I *CAN* Do Is ...

The scale is hopelessly stuck. Wait. Scratch that. Not hopelessly. I *will* get it moving again. The scale is momentarily stuck. Yes, that's better. Counting calories is no longer the way for me to go. Most of what I eat does n... Read more
You Want Advice? From *ME*?

Ab work is not exactly my favorite activity of all time, but I understand I kinda need to do it. I've learned a few tricks from my trainers over the past few years. Before them, I'd do a few crunches and call it a day. Now I have a whole bag o' ... Read more
Money, Self Doubt, and New Pants

Yeah, I know, freaking random post title. So, let's start with the money part. It'd be great if I could just win the lottery and not have to worry about this stuff, but, well, I'd have to PLAY the lottery to win it so in the meantime I bud... Read more
Progress - With Pictures!

The scale isn't moving, but I am definitely starting to see and feel changes. Several of my friends have commented. On Saturday I got "you look so tiny!" which felt pretty damn nice. This morning, the head trainer - a man chiseled ou... Read more

This past weekend was the Free To Breathe 5K and walk for lung cancer. My friend Ali, who has end stage lung cancer, was able to join us, and I was SOOOOO happy she could! She did the 1 mile walk (/wheel) with a bunch of our friends, while five ... Read more
My Butt Hurts

Sunday, I went kayaking. It was loads of fun, and a gorgeous day for it, but I don't have the world's greatest shoulders so I knew I would feel it later. Monday morning, I went to Neil. My shoulders were a little sore, so he said cool, we'... Read more
The Good, The Bad, and The Non-Vegan

The Good: 1. I'm home. 2. I had a FANTASTIC time in Vancouver. 3. I didn't completely blow my calorie budget. 4. I went zip lining through Grouse Mountain! 5. I wobbled on the Capilano Suspension Bridge! 6. I ran through Stanley Pa... Read more

Saturday I was supposed to go tubing down the Potomac. I had organized the whole thing and we were meeting by my house to carpool to the river together. It was going to be awesome. Instead, we woke up to a gray, 66 degree, drizzly, crappy ... Read more
Because I'm Awesome, That's Why.

I just gave myself a talking to. I bought the pants I'm currently wearing back in December. They fit well enough to purchase and I liked them, but they were certainly snug. I knew if I gained anything they'd go in the Maybe Some Day Pile. ... Read more
Full Circle.

Over the weekend I went through and was reading some old blogs here. I got all the way back to 2009, when I was super excited about finally breaking out of the 70s and had finally hit 167.2. Fast forward three years and change to today, an... Read more
Not Yet a Runner, No Longer a Jogger
Thursday, July 19, 2012      5 comments

Isn't there a cheesy pop starlet song about Not being a girl but not being a woman yet? That middle ground is where I feel about my running. I'm not a capital-r Runner, but I'm also not just a jogger. I take it seriously. I have pr... Read more
A big fat HUH? and a plan update.

I weigh in on Sundays. This week I had gained 1.4 pounds. I was bummed. I logged it anyway. This morning, since the scale was still out, I weighed in again. I've lost 1.6 pounds since Sunday morning, so do I record a 0.2 loss now? I know ... Read more

What a freaking fantastic weekend. Friday we managed to get my friend Ali, who has end stage cancer, not only out of the house but out to see her favorite band - and in a cute tank top and makeup to boot! It. Was. Amazing. Not gonna lie, I... Read more
Compliments & A Plan
Friday, July 13, 2012      2 comments

Last night there was a band in town that brought about a sort of family reunion for all my music people. EVERYONE was there, and since I stopped going on the music cruise that united us all, these are people I only see a few times a year now. We... Read more
Mini-binge = Crappy Feeling

The past week has been super stressful at work, with more bad news rolling in this morning. (I'm OK, for now, but I now have this added level of nerves that I wasn't expecting.) My inner fat(ter) girl came out to play today and all I wanted... Read more
