Running & Eating & Upcoming Events
Yesterday, kind of on a whim, I signed up for the lottery to run the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler. It's in April and is a HUUUUGE race here in the DC area. Lots of my friends have run it but I've always deemed it Too Intense. Wellllll, yesterday I ha... Read more
November Recap, December Goals
Welp. November wasn't exactly stellar. Not only did I not lose anything, I gained something. Now, technically it's 0.2 pounds, but still. And I know exactly why. Because I didn't eat right. Exercise is never the problem. It's FOOOOOOOOD. I didn'... Read more

I didn't go completely off the rails.
I definitely ate too much.
I ... Read more
2016 Miles in 2016 (Team Challenge)
Today, I got a random comment on a blog post from nearly a year ago when I got my treadmill and mentioned that two teammates and I had taken the 2016 Miles in 2016 challenge. He asked if I had reached my goal, and so I went and plugged in the la... Read more
Nutrisystem, Korea, and Miscellany
I'm back from Korea, and apparently up 0.4 pounds. However, as I'll get to in a moment, I think that's partially water retention and buffet remnants, and it's also partially hormonal. I am not too concerned about it, except that I am not going t... Read more
430AM Gym Time -- Sup Jet Lag?
Greetings from Seoul!
This is one of my favorite hotels so far. It's beautiful, the room is large and gorgeous with actual storage, my view is fabulous, the shower has great water pressure, the linens are beautiful, the bath towels are hug... Read more
An Almost Success & Upcoming Travel
Let's start with the good news! I got a new battery in the scale and it's down 0.6. It's not huge, but I will take it. Yay!
The bad news is, I'm officially not going to make my 20 pound goal before my trip tomorrow unless I cut off a hand,... Read more
Race Report (TL;DR I FREAKING DID IT!)
My relay race was on Saturday and I am so happy I did it! It took a lot of training for me but I conquered that sucker even better than I expected. I told our team captain to expect a 12:30/mile. Instead:

I went to an orchard last weekend and got a half bushel of apples. If you don't know what a half bushel is, let me tell you - IT IS A CRAP TON OF APPLES.
So I went to work right away, making four batches of applesauce and an apple cake. An... Read more
Oh Hey Skinny Jeans
A week or two ago, I went through the giant stack 'o jeans and found that all the 12s are fitting. But I did not tackle the few pairs of skinny jeans I own because that seemed like asking for disappointment. But this morning ... I tried two of t... Read more

Numbers Will Drive You Crazy
I 'officially' weigh in on Sundays. I shouldn't weigh myself every day because I'll drive myself nuts. Case in point:
*Obviously* I'm ho... Read more
Closet Shopping ... & Eating (Not in the Closet)
I have a giant stack of jeans in my closet ranging from size 10 to 16. Every once in awhile after weight loss/gain, I go through them.
Yesterday I realized the 10s are still too small. That's not very surprising. But all the 12s are workin... Read more
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.
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
