Calculating the Damage
As I've said the last few posts, the last three weeks were kind of a mess. Now I'm home for 6 weeks and I'm back in gear. I got home Sunday and told myself I would not go near the scale until at least this weekend to give myself the week to eat ... Read more
20 Pound Lightbulb
I recently hit the 20 pound mark. I also immediately rebounded, but I'm home and back in the swing of things so this gain is temporary and in my head I'm still saying I'm at 20 pounds even if that may not be 100% true at the moment. ANYWAY. This... Read more
I got home Sunday afternoon and knew it is definitely time to get my act together after the last three weeks of travel/chaos. (But first I had Chipotle for dinner Sunday as one last hurrah! Oopsies.)
So yesterday I went to the grocery stor... Read more
The last three weeks have been a bit of a ... I can't think of another word for sh!tshow, really. First I was in Mexico, then I was home for a few days, then I was off to Holland for a week. I hit the 20 pounds lost mark the day I left for Mexic... Read more
I'm back from vacation and back in the saddle. I had a GREAT time and was still pretty active during the trip. I ran two mornings, and one day we went to this huge park and walked over 8 miles. It was a nice mix of active and lounging.
I d... Read more
Happy Monday! Viva Mexico!
I still have no progress to report. I'm still at 19.2 pounds lost, and I don't think I'll ever lose another 0.8, or anything beyond that. It is very frustrating.
What was NOT helpful was eating both mac & cheese for lunch and pizza for din... Read more
If You're Having Girl Problems, I Feel Bad For Ya Son
I am not a normal female human in many respects, but one in particular is that I don't really have periods very often, so when I do I am completely befuddled. I *JUST* figured out why I've been (seemingly) powerless against junk food whims and w... Read more
More Garmin Geeking Out - With Photos!
I find this hilarious.
I had my watch on the 'cardio' function today at boot camp. Mainly I try to watch my heart rate, but I was looking at so... Read more
Nerd Alert! (AKA Driving Myself Nuts With The Garmin)
I got this fancy Garmin for Christmas, and it has all sorts of bells and whistles on it. I had a Fitbit for years and would obsess over my steps but now I have a whole new set of numbers to obsess over.
Heh. Maybe this is not a good thing.... Read more
So Far, So Good. Heh. It's Day 5.
I'm feeling pretty good so far this year! In the middle of day 5. Ha!
I cooked/prepped a bunch of healthy food on the 30th, knowing that new year's eve would be crazy and then I needed to hit the ground running on the 1st. And I have. I di... Read more
Double Tracking. Oops!
I got a new Garmin for Christmas, and I've been wearing both it and my FitBit to compare how they measure things. They each have their pros and cons, but I think I'm going to stick with the Garmin for the most part.
Problem is, in playing ... Read more
2016 Recap, and 2017 Goals
I just took a peak and over the course of 2016 I gained 14 pounds and lost 18 pounds, for a net loss of 4 pounds. Hey, a loss is a loss. Right? The good news is since August I have been moving mostly in the right direction. It's not a solid down... Read more
The Elusive 20 Pound Mark
Seriously, I don't think it's ever going to get here.
Two weeks ago, I mysteriously gained 2.5 pounds. NO FREAKING IDEA WHY other than the scale and my body think it's hilarious to f*ck with me. But, it's finally back down now and we're mo... Read more
Cherry Blossom 10-Miler. GAAAHHHH! WHEEEEE!
I signed up for the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler lottery. I truly was torn between hoping I made it in because it would force me to train over the winter and hoping I didn't make it in because OMG WHO DOES THIS?
Welllll, I am in. I shall be run... Read more

I can't decide if the title of this is because the scale itself is psychotic, or if it's that the scale is making ME psychotic.
I'm back to obsessively weighing every day, because I am crazy. After that mysterious 2.5 pound gain last week ... Read more
