Getting Better
Tuesday, October 25, 2016      2 comments

Last night I took both a unisom and an ibuprofin, went to bed at 9PM, and didn't get up for 10 solid hours. I FEEL LIKE A NEW WOMAN! My back does still hurt a bit, but it feels a whole lot better than it did yesterday. I had my first (ever... Read more
4 Miles of Fun! Or Pain. Whatever.
Monday, October 24, 2016      2 comments

Yesterday, I did the Go Time Fitness Challenge. It's about a 4 mile course with (apparently, I didn't count) 25 fitness stations along the way. I knew the run would be OK. I also knew the stations would be OK as they're all things we do in boot ... Read more
Surprise Calories!
Thursday, October 20, 2016      1 comments

I'm counting calories. And doing Nutrisystem part time now. NS breakfasts are super easy. Grab something from the box or the freezer, add in some greek yogurt, and you're done for about 250 calories, tops. But last night we had a fundraiser for ... Read more
Frustration & Acceptance
Wednesday, October 19, 2016      4 comments

I know I'm doing the right things. I am counting calories, increasing my protein, lowering my carbs, exercising regularly, sleeping well, and I've built a shrine to the weight loss gods in my closet. OK that last part is a joke but seriously I k... Read more

I got bored on a conference call and started looking at Google Images. These are too funny not to share. emoticon ... Read more
A Loss is a Loss is a Loss
Monday, October 17, 2016      1 comments

I went to visit family for a few days. Ate too much, but at least I ran 6 miles one day while I was there. It wasn't too off the rails except it was all restaurant meals and high fat and high sodium and not at all helpful for weight loss. But! A... Read more
Busy Weekend & A Nutrisystem Buddy
Tuesday, October 11, 2016      2 comments

My BFF was in town this weekend. She and I have each had our weight struggles, but we're both doing pretty well right now. She showed up and opened the fridge and was surprised to find Nutrisytem meals everywhere. Turns out she's done it too, an... Read more
Doggy Endurance Training
Wednesday, October 05, 2016      2 comments

I've been doing weekly short runs (2.3 miles) on Tuesdays. I have not been running with the dog lately because she lets her inner hound dog run wild and insists on sniffing every blade of grass. But she LOVES to run too. Usually when I've run wi... Read more
Running My Butt Off (Eventually)
Monday, October 03, 2016      6 comments

There's a running group that meets every Saturday. Most of them are super hard core - fast little gazelles constantly training for another marathon or triathlon or something. Then there's me, who just needs a little motivation to get out of the ... Read more
My Mysterious Body (And Less Mysterious Photos!)
Friday, September 30, 2016      1 comments

I'm home from my first trip since rededicating myself to tracking calories and behaving and seriously working toward weight loss. I would have said it was a failure. First, every single meal I had to tell some waiter that a fish is not a v... Read more
The 62-day Check-in
Friday, September 23, 2016      3 comments

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.
Monday, September 19, 2016      2 comments

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. BUT. I am trying to st... Read more

A Better Week ... So Far
Thursday, September 15, 2016      0 comments

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
About Cheese
Tuesday, September 13, 2016      6 comments

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
