The Motivation of a Future Picture
Wednesday, October 19, 2011      1 comments

I’ve gained the weight I lost with SparkPeople a year ago, but I haven’t completely let myself go. To date, I have run over 500 miles in 2011. I ran when it was 4F and 90F. I’ve run 3 half marathons since July. This past Saturday, I ran a hal... Read more

Today I went mountain biking with a friend. We finished around 1:00 and I was starving. As I was driving home, I started thinking about fast food. Like, Burger King. And I started justifying it to myself. Like, I'll have a chicken sandwich inst... Read more

New Exercise - Day 5
Monday, August 30, 2010      3 comments

So several weeks ago I read a very motivating SparkBlog about a woman expressing her willingness to wear a swim suit for exercise even if she wasn't her ideal size. That motivated me and reminded me that I wanted to swim. I had a free 10... Read more
Days 3 & 4
Sunday, August 29, 2010      1 comments

Saturday was a 10 mile run. I've been working toward running a half marathon next weekend and I haven't been consistent in my training throughout the sumer. So I've been in a pattern of over train, fall behind, over train to catch up. I know bet... Read more

So yesterday morning I had a flat tire on my mountain bike. At the trailhead, my friend got a flat tire. I had an extra tube, but it didn't fit her rims, so it was either wait 30 minute for her to go get another tube or re-schedule for today. We... Read more

Day 2 Back
Tuesday, August 10, 2010      1 comments

I was feeling so good yesterday evening. I had exercised and was on the low end of the calorie range. But I couldn't fall asleep and finally I decided I was hungry. It didn't go well. I tried to compensate this morning. That didn't go as planne... Read more
Back Again

Weight gain has been the rather predictable consequence of ignoring diet and losing focus on exercise the past several months. It happens. I was really struggling to stick to my goals in the spring. I took some time off. I played in my yard, I... Read more
Trouble Goal: Calorie Range
Thursday, April 15, 2010      8 comments

It's a daily struggle to stay in range. This seems like such a big piece of the puzzle; it acutally seems to big to be a "trouble goal". If I'm not staying in my range, what am I doing here? Lately, many days I don't try at all. If I know I'm... Read more

What am I going to do? My first year in Utah, I positively mourned the end of ski season. Even having a cermonial putting away of the gear. Now I love all the seasons -- well maybe not November - too snowy to hike and too early for reliable sk... Read more
Back on Track

I didn't hit all of my daily goals last week, but I did enough to feel like I've gotten back on track. I got in 3400 exercise calories- thanks to getting up for Am workouts 4 weekdays and a great last season storm that made for 2 great days of ... Read more
One good day deserves another
Tuesday, March 30, 2010      4 comments

So I said yesterday that passover might not be the best time to be worrying about calories. But it turned out quite well. First off, I'd forgotten how nice the seder is. It's my understanding that the tradition varies a bit house to house. I do... Read more
Trying to Catch up with the Wagon
Monday, March 29, 2010      4 comments

So my mellow sparking turned into barely sparking. I was thinking about sparking throughout the week, but not really seeing anything through - maybe my water and fruits/veggies. Those login points- they're great, but they don't really burn man... Read more
