Hello, Fall!

Weighed in today at 185 -- the goal I had set for my birthday this coming Tuesday. Woohoo! Medication I'm on had seemed to make weight loss harder, so I had assumed that was all I could do -- glad body seems to be responding better at the moment... Read more
Spicy Bean Burrito review

A and I decided that we want to attempt more meals without meat. I've been collecting recipes on a pinterest board. Decided that I can use this space to post about things we have tried. Tonight's menu is Spicy Bean Burritos recipes... Read more
Killing Fat... slowly

Just finished the 30 Day Shred dvd. Good night, 20 minutes later and my muscles are jelly. I was pretty energized by the time the 3rd cardio segment came around -- probably could have handled a few more of those, but the rest served as a wake up... Read more
Inching along

Woohoo! Weighed in at 165 today. I'm trekking along. I realized a few minutes ago that I'm 2 pounds away from the lowest weight A has ever seen me at. Of course, *I* don't remember being under that... I think the last time I saw the 150s (or 161... Read more
Mind over failure

Do you ever feel guilty even when doing everything right? I'm not sure how I manage to do that -- after breakfast this morning I felt like all was worthless, even though the breakfast I ate was planned AND healthy (a kashi granola bar and fruit)... Read more

Hey Sparkers. It has been a long time since I've updated here (obviously -- although I do check in and track food to check in every few weeks). I've mostly maintained my weight over the last year (weighed in at 166 this morning), but am getting ... Read more
HELLO 160s!
Thursday, June 25, 2009      15 comments

Let's just say I'm no longer feeling stuck! Despite too much pizza for lunch (rest of the day's calories had to be SEVERELY modified), the scale plummeted to 169 this morning. I lost 4 pounds this week (the previous week was TOM, so I know I was... Read more
Feeling sticky
Tuesday, June 23, 2009      4 comments

Do any of you ever feel stuck when you aren't? I've been down on myself the last few days for no good reason. I'm finding myself discouraged with fluctuations of the scale -- even when I expect them. I feel like I'm gaining and failing, when in ... Read more

Tomorrow my little sister gets married. I'm currently trying to work on my speech and am facing a serious case of fear-induced writer's block. I'm not scared of speaking, I'm scared of not saying all I really mean on her big day. So I'm writing ... Read more
Startin' over!
Monday, June 01, 2009      3 comments

I am officially starting over. And, of course, that make it sounds like I've fallen off the wagon and am starting again. NOT the case. This time, I've hit my halfway point and changed my ticker to show it as my top weight. Sometimes it has been ... Read more
It fits!
Tuesday, May 26, 2009      5 comments

I don't post on this blog very often. I think that is mostly because I have so many other areas to keep updated -- knowing there is yet ANOTHER blog to post in can be overwhelming. But I also recognize that posting here helps me. So ... Read more
The upper limits
Tuesday, March 24, 2009      2 comments

I made a decision today. When the swimmer in my tracker is at the halfway point, I'm resetting my starting weight. I think having all of that space to the left becomes a fallback for me -- "I'm not ALL The way back where I started..." But what i... Read more

Last Saturday, my running buddy Tiffany and I were excited to have a Spring-like day for our 8-miler training run. After about mile 3, my saliva turned into paste, and ... Read more

After completing my marathon in November, it has been hard to think about "what's next." Sure, I want to continue running and achieve new personal records, but I'm ready to start scanning the horizons for new challenges. At the end of last ... Read more
