Here I am, with "babies" who are now 11 months old. And...starting to wean themselves. Suddenly, I'm sad to say that I can't eat whatever the fluff I want and still maintain weight. I know, right, what do you MEAN I can't eat a box of brow... Read more

Here I am tracking my food out of curiosity...I have not tracked in so long. I have had children! And my body is a totally different animal than it was a mere year ago. We had an extraordinary adventure together. I'd love to lose weight,... Read more
Happy to be gaining weight!

Dear SparkEverybody, I am officially 14 weeks pregnant! I am very happy to be gaining weight, exercising with less gusto (weights are ok...crazy cardio not so much), and tracking food for the primary reason of protein and not calorie count... Read more
Two weeks with no sugar--clarification
Friday, June 07, 2013      1 comments

So, I was thinking that it wasn't really fair to post that I lost weight when not eating sugar and make it sound that straightforward. What really happened is that I am trying to work with a dr. on some things, and I had a two week period of ve... Read more
Thwarted! The bike and the ankle
Friday, May 10, 2013      5 comments

So...I have injured myself, I need to refrain from a bike ride, and it is supposed to be 80 degrees today. :( I strained my ankle riding my bike on Monday. 16 miles to work, 16 miles home. Despite the discomfort I felt like a stud anyway... Read more

I won't even question why, but we are in the high 70's this weekend, expected temp of 83 on Monday (hmmm, is that a virus I feel coming on? hate to spread that around the ol' office...). I LOVE heat and sun. I'm eating this week up, and it i... Read more
Freakin' freakout
Tuesday, April 23, 2013      4 comments

Or so I claim, anyway, but there is always more to the story. Starting taking some pills, dr. orders. Hormones, actually, and I expect to see these in my future a lot over the coming months. In a nutshell: Holy feels-different-but-no... Read more

Do any of you remember the following Chanel commercial from the late 70s?
oVwvmozG6-A I used to run to watch it when I'd hear the music start up, from any part of the house. I absolutely l... Read more
Clean and Jerk

So, I'm moving into the wide world of new routine with my trainer, and last time we met we worked with heavier weights than normal. HOLY COW. It was a ton of fun, and I am very proud to say that I finished all my reps even though the first... Read more
The mouse, the oven, and the lasange that never happened
Sunday, March 24, 2013      10 comments

We were going to have a fabulous veggie lasagne to last through the week, made with nettle and whole wheat noodles and other such goodness. And, yesterday was my pick-up at the ol' local community college pottery studio, and I wanted to take my... Read more

I went to the gym for not only my PT session this morning, but then decided I was a stud-muffin and I also ran a treadmill 5k. Came home hungry like the a little carried away....and look what happened! ... Read more
Lemon Curd and the Wayward Husband
Wednesday, March 20, 2013      7 comments

I had a fever, and lemon curd was the only cure. Why? I have no idea. I've been craving it for almost the full week now, and just succumbed! I made some tonight, a delightful little recipe I found on Cooking Light: www.myreci... Read more
Sugar free
Sunday, March 10, 2013      7 comments

Starting Monday I wanted to re-visit an old experiment of mine that asks for no refined sugars for a week. Last time I was stoic, as I was freaking out about a knee injury and really wanted to heal via diet and exercise rather than via medicati... Read more
I could get used to this
Wednesday, March 06, 2013      5 comments

Not to sound (again?) like a sales advocate, but I am so thankful that I have signed up for a year with a trainer. I allowed it to influence my life heavily. Thank goodness. I'm wearing my new confidence today. Wearing my new habits, a... Read more
Is anyone else cold?
Sunday, January 13, 2013      4 comments

Soo hard to get out of bed this morning...I totally missed yoga and my morning 5k both. I'll try to make the 5k later today, but I suspect my own motivations this week. In related news, I did not run on Friday. I had my laptop in the car, an... Read more
