Bad Attitude, But I Went
Wednesday, May 10, 2017      2 comments

Some days my heart just isn't in class in the morning. I've been really sore since Monday -- everywhere, really, but particularly in my butt. I almost slept in this morning, but eventually got my sore butt out of bed and headed in. Trainer:... Read more

Last night I made a delicious dinner that was enormous and also really low in calories. I just sautéed: Onion (1 small) Garlic (2 cloves) Mushrooms (8oz package, chopped) Broccoli (2 cups, microsteamed for 1.5 minutes before add... Read more
Lessons from the road

I went to Orlando for a couple of days to celebrate my niece's college graduation. GO HER! I tried to stay on track as much as possible. Things I learned: 1. Adding eggs back into the diet has made breakfast SO. MUCH. EASIER. Most places w... Read more
Regrouping. WITH SCIENCE.

OK, my last post was kind of a downer. I get it. But I am better. I've decided to ditch my RD in favor of someone who will work with me. I did some research and found the GW Weight Management and Human Performance Lab just 10 minutes away from m... Read more
A 90-Day Check-in (Warning: Downer!)
Monday, May 01, 2017      5 comments

I recently passed a 90 day login streak. I've been pretty frustrated because the scale is not moving. So this morning when I checked in and saw that it's day 93, I figured I'd go look back three months and see all my fantastic progress and feel ... Read more
I Miss Running. Whaaaaat?
Thursday, April 27, 2017      1 comments

I haven't been running much. I trained for the 10-miler and then my foot hurt and then the weather's been bad and blah blah blah. This morning I found myself thinking of running this weekend and came to the realization that I miss running.... Read more
Laziness Works In My Favor For Once!

I went out at lunch time to run a couple of errands. I had my lunch already planned and even logged, but I found myself contemplating all the restaurants around said errands and what I could get. But. It's raining. And the ones that ... Read more

My protein quest (ha!) continues. I'm still obsessed with my Quest chocolate milkshake protein, and my friend let me try this Syntrax fruit protein powder that I liked so I ordered the sampler of all their flavors. They seriously taste like Kool... Read more
Spring Cleaning ... The House and The Diet
Friday, April 21, 2017      0 comments

Yesterday I talked about some small changes I've been making. Today I'm looking at more high protein vegetarian recipes to mix up the rotation a bit. I just found these Greek Yogurt Oatmeal pancakes that look good so I will try them this weekend... Read more
Making Small Changes
Thursday, April 20, 2017      3 comments

Not much new to report, but I'm making some small changes to my diet to, I hope, continue the extremely slow but forward progress. 1. Smart Water. I've always been pretty good about drinking my water (about 100 oz per day), but I've ... Read more

The scale is still stuck. To give myself credit, it did budge 0.2 pounds down, but OH MY GOD WHY IS THIS TAKING SO LONG? I am doing the right things. I am eating right. I am exercising. I am drinking sh*t tons of water. I'm still not back where ... Read more

Got back from a work trip with the scale up, which I expected. But, honestly, I also expected it to go back down pretty quickly once I was back home and in the swing of things. Well, it's now Thursday and the scale has refused to budge. It even ... Read more
Back At It (Again)
Wednesday, April 05, 2017      1 comments

I knew Chicago would be tough on the scale, and sure enough I came home 5 pounds heavier. It's amazing how easy it is to gain weight. Three of them came off pretty much right away so water/travel/whatever. But, I'm still up 2ish pounds, wh... Read more

Yesterday was the Cherry Blossom 10-miler in DC. My longest race in over 5 years. Early this year, once I knew I was in via the lottery process, I set a goal time of 2 hours. That's a 12 minute mile. That's doable, but fast for me, especially at... Read more
