Goals and goals.
I joined a Sparkpeople challenge in the Progress Not Perfection team called "Four by the Fourth", in which you try and lose 4 pounds from the beginning of June to the 4th of July. I am usually very sporadic on my team participation, but I have ... Read more
One Year Later
I was looking at my weigh in report today, and realized that I started tracking a year ago today. On my spark page it says tomorrow, but you know. Close enough.
I have gained and lost, gained and lost weight since I was 14 or 15 years o... Read more
Tiny Steps Become Leaps
Yesterday I was off work, lounging around, trying to talk myself into a pizza for dinner. I didn't do so hot at lunch, but I didn't REALLY want to keep on with the derailment. I know that if I let myself argue long enough, I will give in to pi... Read more
Best. Workout. EVER.
I had the best workout today! I did the interval setting on the treadmill, 30 minutes with 1.5% incline. The "rest" portion was at 2.9 mph, "work" at 5.0 mph. The last interval I worked at 5.5 mph. It was a nice run/walk and I feel AMAZING n... Read more
Outside Doesn't Reflect Inside.
I mean the weather. It's pouring, it has been gray and gloomy all day. In this building, I am bright and happy. I am wearing a pair of size 16 slacks today. They are snug, but not tight. I can't believe it. I see glimpses of myself in the m... Read more
The New Loss

Getting Out of These 20s
I am hanging on to size 20s and I don't know why. The 18s have fit for a while, but they were snug. Well...they aren't snug anymore, they fit just right. Yet I still have two size 20 pants that I keep around. I put them on in the morning, an... Read more

Getting back on.
I have been tracking, but I haven't been trying very hard to get my stuff done. I haven't pushed it with the workouts, although I have made sure to get 90 minutes a week just because I don't want to end my months long streak! Like I said, I ha... Read more
A little update. Scattered thinking included.
It is so hard to work so hard and feel strong and awesome and then... see that you don't look much different.
I'm not complaining! Okay maybe yes I am. But its so hard to be patient sometimes. I know this will pay off, and I can immediat... Read more
Speaking of sizes...
Before I begin, let me just say that I love all of the Moving Comfort products I have used and would be happy finding a gift certificate in my stocking. I'm not picking on the company, per se, so much as adding to the dialog of clothing sizes f... Read more
Update...and navel gazing.
I completed Week 3 of Couch to 5K two or three weeks ago. After that I just started running at my own pace. I think that this has paid off, because I saw my average speed jump tremendously! I am feeling really good about my running. ... Read more

On track? Yes!
Yesterday I ran outside again. It was chilly and windy and overcast, and I ran on a path along the river. It was cold (I def didn't sweat) but it felt great! There were a few times my legs, especially my shins, felt wooden but I pushed throug... Read more
