I've been running for a few weeks on and off and esterday and today I got up at sunrise to rune three and three 1/2 miles. I think I may take up running. If I'm not in Egypt in April, I'm going to try the 5K (3.107 miles) in the Hogeye Marathon.... Read more

Just put my favorite pair of pants on the pile today. They were a 16 and fall down even when they're zipped and buttoned - right over my hips! This is really good. I really can't believe that I weigh 156 pounds. I never thought I'd ever be this ... Read more

I bought a pair of purple courdory capri pants from Old Navy after my comprehensive exams for the PhD in October of 2004. They were a size 14 and they were pretty tight, but I thought they were cute and I needed something more comfortable to cha... Read more

I'm tired today. I think since I've increased my physical activity I've been needing more sleep every night. I woke up today in a terrible mood and I'm not sure why. I went to sleep irritated at Tom for the messy house but this has been growing ... Read more
Calorie Distribution

I've realized that it would probably be helpful to get most of my calories during the day before exercising. Tom and I kind of came up with this because on Friday, after essentially starving myself, I threw a temper tantrum over something minor ... Read more

Well I did well this week so far. Yesterday I even snuck in 10 minutes of cardio to burn off some calories. I knew I needed it because we were invited to our friend John's who had just caught a bunch of crawfish in his pond and wanted to boil t... Read more

I'm feeling very irratible. Ever since I saw how many calories were in French Dressing, the dressing I thought would be healthiest, I've been pissed. Yesterday I was good and was very motivated. Today I'm still motivated but really have a lot o... Read more
