Organization FTW

Monday, August 24, 2015      4 comments

So with a work schedule that is unfortunately unreliable and ever-changing, I spent a month or two trying to make my cheat/rest day coincide with one of my days off. Well, that doesn't always work so well when my days off come close together, f... Read more

C25K Progress

Finally starting to get the hang of yoga. I wasn't sure how into it I'd be, but I'm really growing to like it! The biggest challenge was figuring out how to transition from one pose into another, because the app I'm using didn't make that very... Read more

Yup, it's those few days of the month where I turn into a hormone-crazed lunatic. My best friend was cracking up over the phone because I just went on this angry diatribe about idiot drivers - a complete overreaction to a few morons in a parkin... Read more

Healthier All-Around

Friday, June 07, 2013      3 comments

It's interesting how, as I become more and more dedicated to being healthier, old habits just don't seem appealing anymore. I wasn't feeling great this morning, so I said screw it, today will be a cheat day. (I didn't get one on Tuesday. DRAM... Read more

High on Life

Monday, June 03, 2013      1 comments

Took a few days, but finally recovered from that stumble last week, and it's just amazing how much dedicating myself to a healthier lifestyle has affected me. I have so much more energy, I'm less irritable, and I'm slowly learning to vent my st... Read more

Frowny Face

Tuesday, May 28, 2013      1 comments

Fell off the wagon a bit the last few days. Pretty annoyed with myself and my complete lack of self-control. I really think that lack of sleep was a big factor. I keep saying I'm going to get more, but it's become clear that it's an absolute ... Read more

Did 45 minutes of cardio yesterday - rollerblading. Gotta love having a paved, 26-mile trail that runs right through downtown. Really wish I could afford a bike, I could bike for hours. Then again, you get a lot more arms in rollerblading. O... Read more

The Little Things

Tuesday, May 21, 2013      2 comments

So I'm back on the horse once again, after some major life changes that lead me back down the emotional eating spiral. But things are looking up, and I'm feeling better than ever with a healthy diet and exercise regimen. I'm pretty proud of my... Read more

I think one of the best parts about being both physically active in general and a runner specifically, is that I no longer have to stand awkwardly and pretend to be interested when the topic turns to exercise. In the past, I was always painfull... Read more

Yesterday morning was the Muddy Buddy!!! My partner and I realized late the night before that we didn't have bike helmets (you have to have one on the whole race, whether you're running or biking), nor a water bottle attached to the bike, so we... Read more

Crockpot Magic

Wednesday, March 23, 2011      0 comments

Got a little off-track for awhile, but I'm leaping back on! Finally used my crockpot for the first time and OH MY LORD. As I told my mother, while thanking her profusely (it was a Christmas gift), it was basically invented for lazy people who ... Read more

Stepping it Down

Saturday, February 26, 2011      1 comments

Aaaaaaaaand, my week of nonstop cardio FINALLY comes to a close! I've run or rollerbladed 6/7 days this week and burned 2163 calories!! I know that when starting (or restarting for the millionth time) an exercise routine, it's easy to get ... Read more

Back on Track

Thursday, February 24, 2011      0 comments

These last few days have been fantastic! It's always a toss-up as to whether being off of work for a few days will be a good thing or a bad thing. Sometimes, I start eating out of boredom - idle hands, idle mouths, same difference. This time,... Read more

Love-Hate Relationship

Saturday, February 19, 2011      2 comments

I feel like we who are trying to lose weight have a fair number of love-hate relationships: working out, favorite foods, and that one pair of jeans where it's always a toss-up as to whether they'll fit. Today I discovered a new one: the moment ... Read more

Big, Thick, Muscles!

Sunday, January 23, 2011      0 comments

Shinsplints started flaring up tonight; I think I jinxed it by raving about how pain-free I'd been with my new running shoes. Pushed through, because I am too stubborn for my own good, but I need to remember, as well as watching my stride, not ... Read more
