Today's HIIT Insanity (Dubbed CardiOHMYGOD)
This morning it was about 14 degrees Fahrenheit when boot camp started with some insane wind chill making it feel like minus 298340982343 (give or take). Tom says, "Well, today was supposed to be a long run, but ... even I'm not that crazy. So i... Read more
Scales Are Stupid
I'm feeling pretty good. My clothes are fitting better. A couple of people have commented that I look like I'm losing weight. I feel healthier, stronger, more active, on track.
By my scale at home, I've lost 8 pounds. Then I went to the do... Read more

Oh yeah, that's multiple successes.
1. I'm wearing my Limited size 12 skinny jeans for the first time in, I dunno, a year?!
2. I signed up for a two week trial of boxing and kickboxing - the kind where you actually get to hit and kic... Read more
Merry Christmas to Me! A Treadmill!
At my request, most of my family gave me Amazon gift cards for Christmas, and what did I do with them?

Countdown to Vacation
The good news is I've lost 8 pounds.
The bad news is that's only about half of what I gained in the last 6 months or so.
I'm starting off 2016 in the right direction. I go on vacation (bathing suits and all. ugh!) in three weeks. I'm... Read more
One of my boot camp instructors has been sharing her 7-day detox plan. I've never done such a thing before and honestly I'm a bit skeptical about the whole idea, but when she posted a picture of the food for the week I realized it looked awfully... Read more

1. I haven't posted anything since July. Wow.

So, remember the last few posts (probably not b... Read more
Regain = Refocus
Despite my best intentions, I've let the 10 pounds I lost creep back on. I have lots of excuses, and some of them might even be moderately valid, but the bottom line is they (both the excuses and the pounds) need to go bu-bye. And stay gone.

Moving Forward ...
After my friend Ali died 2.5 years ago, I went into an emotional eating downward spiral and gained back all the weight I had lost and then some. It's now been just over a month (a month an two days, but who's counting) since my beloved passed aw... Read more
1 Year, 9 Months, and 11 Days.
That's all I got with the love of my life before he passed away last week from a particularly aggressive and ugly form of cancer. I'm in a fog and have no idea how to get out of it, but I know I will somehow, someday. Seriously the smallest thin... Read more
MIA but not really gone ...
Warning: This is a bit depressing, but it gets better at the end.
It's been a long time since I've posted anything on here, and honestly I don't even know where to begin.
Let's start with the major life upheaval in that the love of my... Read more

Stress, News, Motivation, and Stuff
Basically all hell has broken loose on the homefront lately. When I bought my tiny little (by suburban standards) condo back in 2008 I was a single girl. Fast forward and now we've got two adults, a teenager, two cats, and a dog living in a 1440... Read more
