The 62-day Check-in
It probably would have made sense to do this two days ago for a 60-day check-in, but what's life without a little randomness thrown in?
Anyway, it's been 62 days now since I regrouped and restarted this process. The scale has been sporadic... Read more
Annoyed. But trying to focus on the good.
The scale is stuck for another week. This is three weeks in a row now. I am not happy. I know these plateaus are part of how my body works and eventually it will bend to my will. It's just taking too damn long.
I am trying to st... Read more

A Better Week ... So Far
Last week, I had a (very small) gain. But the week before I miraculously lost 4 pounds so I wasn't too upset about it. Plus I know how my body works (or doesn't) and plateaus are just part of the game. This week, I'm doing much better on nutriti... Read more
Before I went vegan, I always thought cheese would be the hardest thing to give up. I was right. I missed cheese! Then I'd travel or for some other assorted reason not have any vegan options and so I'd have some cheese and I'd think OMG YESSSSSS... Read more
Shopping Trials & Tribulations
I love shopping. Sort of. Sometimes. Saturday was not one of those days.
The good news is I got a new industrial strength sports bra and I wore it today for burpees, running, jumping rope, and other jumping/cardio activities and I didn't g... Read more
Another Gain Approaching
Last week some sort of freak miracle happened and I lost four pounds. I was pretty damn excited, let me tell you.
This week, well, I've done a few midweek check-ins and it seems to be up about 1-1.5 pounds.
I'm not going to freak out... Read more
A Likable Picture? Whatttttt?
We use resistance bands at boot camp. Every once in awhile, if you pull too hard or it's super old, they snap. It doesn't happen a ton, but it's become a rite of passage. Today, I broke my first band and Mario insisted on a picture to commemorat... Read more
The Dirty Double
I've started running again. Slowly. Not that I have ever (EVER!) been fast, but slower even by my own turtle-like standards. I have a plan to train for this relay race, and it includes long runs on Saturdays and at least one speed/tempo run duri... Read more
Thanks & Stickers
First, thanks for all the kind words on my last post. You're the best! I think it's a lot easier to see changes on other people than it is on yourself. We are our own worst critics, right?
So things are sailing along after a not terrible b... Read more
4 pounds? Whaaaaaatttt?
My plan was to take a picture every 10 pounds. I was hoping that would be this week. But usually when I get my hopes up my body reminds me who's in charge and I end up disappointed. BUT NOT THIS WEEK. I was absolutely stunned to see a 4 pound lo... Read more
Running Through September
First off, how the hell is it already September?!
Anyway, I wanted to talk about running today. I've been saying for awhile now that I need to sign up for something longer than a 5K because I need something to train for. When I run on my o... Read more
My dad has been diabetic since I was a teenager. It's part of the reason I've attempted to stay active and healthy(ish), because I don't want to become a Type 2 diabetic and rely on insulin and face all the medical problems that can come along w... Read more
Well, it happened. i gained weight instead of losing it even though I was still working hard.
It was 0.2 pounds.
ZERO POINT TWO.
It's OK. It's not ideal, but it's OK. Could be water. Could be hormones. Things fluctua... Read more
The Fear of the Gain
Week 1: YIPPEE!
Week 2: YIPPEE!
Week 3: OH NO, A SMALLER LOSS THAN THE FIRST TWO, WOE IS ME.
Week 4: YIPPEE!
Now week 5 is underway and the scale hasn't moved down at all. In fact in a couple of mid-week sneak peaks, it's gone up.
