Double Tracking. Oops!
Tuesday, January 03, 2017      0 comments

I got a new Garmin for Christmas, and I've been wearing both it and my FitBit to compare how they measure things. They each have their pros and cons, but I think I'm going to stick with the Garmin for the most part. Problem is, in playing ... Read more

Monday, January 02, 2017      1 comments

I just took a peak and over the course of 2016 I gained 14 pounds and lost 18 pounds, for a net loss of 4 pounds. Hey, a loss is a loss. Right? The good news is since August I have been moving mostly in the right direction. It's not a solid down... Read more
The Elusive 20 Pound Mark
Monday, December 19, 2016      1 comments

Seriously, I don't think it's ever going to get here. Two weeks ago, I mysteriously gained 2.5 pounds. NO FREAKING IDEA WHY other than the scale and my body think it's hilarious to f*ck with me. But, it's finally back down now and we're mo... Read more
Cherry Blossom 10-Miler. GAAAHHHH! WHEEEEE!
Wednesday, December 14, 2016      5 comments

I signed up for the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler lottery. I truly was torn between hoping I made it in because it would force me to train over the winter and hoping I didn't make it in because OMG WHO DOES THIS? Welllll, I am in. I shall be run... Read more
Psycho Scale
Tuesday, December 13, 2016      5 comments

I can't decide if the title of this is because the scale itself is psychotic, or if it's that the scale is making ME psychotic. I'm back to obsessively weighing every day, because I am crazy. After that mysterious 2.5 pound gain last week ... Read more
I Never Learn
Monday, December 12, 2016      4 comments

I got frustrated with the scale. i shared it here. You all felt my pain. I told myself I had to suck it up, get over it, keep moving, not let it get me down, power through ... every cheesy cliche I could think of. It didn't work. I l... Read more
GGGGGAAAAAAAHHHHHH.
Friday, December 09, 2016      4 comments

I find it really annoying that Spark won't let me swear. Because mothertrucker I'm flurking pissed at the ducking scale right now. I was at cough-cough4.0, which jumped to 4.8 after my Korea trip. I was stuck there for three weeks and then... Read more
Channeling My Inner (Faux)Meathead.
Thursday, December 08, 2016      0 comments

When I first started Nutrisystem, I was doing really well with snacking on vegetables instead of fruit (or worse) and generally lowering my carbs. Then time marched on, as it tends to do, and I found myself truly dreading another carrot stick or... Read more
What I Learned from Yesterday's Mini-Binge
Wednesday, December 07, 2016      1 comments

To set the scene - I had to go to the grocery store - the nice one with the prepared food section. I decided to go yesterday at lunch time. I thought I could trust myself to get lunch there and not do anything stupid. I was wrong. ... Read more
New (Snarky) Motivational Signs!
Tuesday, December 06, 2016      6 comments

A while ago, I put up motivational signs around the house. A combination of serious and funny. Case in point: "You don't get the ass you want by sitting on it" next to "This is your reminder that you are amazing and can do anything." But t... Read more
Motto: Plateau Early, Plateau Often
Monday, December 05, 2016      0 comments

OK, so that's a terrible motto. But it's reality. However, PLATEAU FINALLY FREAKING BROKEN. For now. I never actually officially recorded the pound I was up after my last trip, so SP thinks I'm down 1 pound, but in reality the scale ... Read more
Running & Eating & Upcoming Events
Friday, December 02, 2016      1 comments

Yesterday, kind of on a whim, I signed up for the lottery to run the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler. It's in April and is a HUUUUGE race here in the DC area. Lots of my friends have run it but I've always deemed it Too Intense. Wellllll, yesterday I ha... Read more
November Recap, December Goals
Thursday, December 01, 2016      0 comments

Welp. November wasn't exactly stellar. Not only did I not lose anything, I gained something. Now, technically it's 0.2 pounds, but still. And I know exactly why. Because I didn't eat right. Exercise is never the problem. It's FOOOOOOOOD. I didn'... Read more

The good: I went to a 90 minute boot camp class on Thursday. I ran on Friday. I ran on Sunday. I brought a big healthy salad for Thanksgiving. I didn't go completely off the rails. The bad: I definitely ate too much. I ... Read more

Wednesday, November 23, 2016      0 comments

Today, I got a random comment on a blog post from nearly a year ago when I got my treadmill and mentioned that two teammates and I had taken the 2016 Miles in 2016 challenge. He asked if I had reached my goal, and so I went and plugged in the la... Read more
