Feeling Dedicated
Wednesday, March 01, 2017      1 comments

Like a million other people, I have ups and downs in the motivation department. I know if I track my calories and watch what I eat (and drink) and exercise regularly I feel better, I have a better chance of losing weight, etc. But IT IS EXH... Read more
Meeting with the Dietician - Hello Calorie Cycling!
Tuesday, February 28, 2017      2 comments

Yesterday, I had my first meeting with a registered dietician. I didn't really know what to expect, after having a bad experience with a nutritionist several years ago. I liked her. She didn't say anything that blew my mind, but I think she offe... Read more
Erased From History

Before I go to my first appointment with a registered dietitian, I thought I'd reflect a little on my weight loss history. This is my go-to "before"... Read more
One Bad Photo

I am my own worst critic. I know that. And this picture probably isn't that bad. I've had worse photos. But you think you're making progress and then yo... Read more
Worst. Run. Ever.
Thursday, February 23, 2017      4 comments

I have been doing a lousy job of running during the week. I go to boot camp, and then I do my scheduled long run on the weekend, but I really need to get out for short speed work or hill work during the week if I want to get any faster before th... Read more
Calculating the Damage
Thursday, February 16, 2017      1 comments

As I've said the last few posts, the last three weeks were kind of a mess. Now I'm home for 6 weeks and I'm back in gear. I got home Sunday and told myself I would not go near the scale until at least this weekend to give myself the week to eat ... Read more
20 Pound Lightbulb
Wednesday, February 15, 2017      5 comments

I recently hit the 20 pound mark. I also immediately rebounded, but I'm home and back in the swing of things so this gain is temporary and in my head I'm still saying I'm at 20 pounds even if that may not be 100% true at the moment. ANYWAY. This... Read more
Meal Preppin'
Tuesday, February 14, 2017      2 comments

I got home Sunday afternoon and knew it is definitely time to get my act together after the last three weeks of travel/chaos. (But first I had Chipotle for dinner Sunday as one last hurrah! Oopsies.) So yesterday I went to the grocery stor... Read more
I'm Baaaaaaack!
Monday, February 13, 2017      1 comments

The last three weeks have been a bit of a ... I can't think of another word for sh!tshow, really. First I was in Mexico, then I was home for a few days, then I was off to Holland for a week. I hit the 20 pounds lost mark the day I left for Mexic... Read more
Mmmmm, Tacos.
Wednesday, February 01, 2017      2 comments

I'm back from vacation and back in the saddle. I had a GREAT time and was still pretty active during the trip. I ran two mornings, and one day we went to this huge park and walked over 8 miles. It was a nice mix of active and lounging. I d... Read more
Happy Monday! Viva Mexico!
Monday, January 23, 2017      3 comments

I still have no progress to report. I'm still at 19.2 pounds lost, and I don't think I'll ever lose another 0.8, or anything beyond that. It is very frustrating. What was NOT helpful was eating both mac & cheese for lunch and pizza for din... Read more
If You're Having Girl Problems, I Feel Bad For Ya Son
Friday, January 13, 2017      1 comments

I am not a normal female human in many respects, but one in particular is that I don't really have periods very often, so when I do I am completely befuddled. I *JUST* figured out why I've been (seemingly) powerless against junk food whims and w... Read more
More Garmin Geeking Out - With Photos!

I find this hilarious. I had my watch on the 'cardio' function today at boot camp. Mainly I try to watch my heart rate, but I was looking at so... Read more
Nerd Alert! (AKA Driving Myself Nuts With The Garmin)
Monday, January 09, 2017      3 comments

I got this fancy Garmin for Christmas, and it has all sorts of bells and whistles on it. I had a Fitbit for years and would obsess over my steps but now I have a whole new set of numbers to obsess over. Heh. Maybe this is not a good thing.... Read more
So Far, So Good. Heh. It's Day 5.
Thursday, January 05, 2017      3 comments

I'm feeling pretty good so far this year! In the middle of day 5. Ha! I cooked/prepped a bunch of healthy food on the 30th, knowing that new year's eve would be crazy and then I needed to hit the ground running on the 1st. And I have. I di... Read more
