PiYo and Diet Day 6
Saturday, January 16, 2016      2 comments

Yesterday I skipped PiYo because I ran 2 miles at work and was absolutely wiped when I got home. I then overdid it on a late night snack of Ben and Jerry's while my husband and I watched a movie. But, today is a new day. I started the day ... Read more

Thursday, January 14, 2016      2 comments

Yesterday I was so sore I could hardly walk, so I took a rest day. Today I did PiYo Sweat. It was surprisingly difficult and I didn't make it through the full 35 minutes. I got through 20 before I was shaking so badly I couldn't continue. I'll g... Read more

Well, I jumped a few leaps back between work getting increasingly stressful, the holidays, and general travel, I found myself slowly posting less here, not tracking my food, and falling back into unhealthy habits. I've gained back everything I l... Read more
Guilt-free food
Wednesday, November 04, 2015      6 comments

Tonight I went out for dinner. The person I was with ordered an appetizer to share and I "indulged" in a piece of gyoza. Almost instantly I felt the guilt begin to build. I didn't plan for an appetizer, it was fried, it wasn't the best choice. I... Read more

I am traveling again this week. Fortunately the hotel has a mini fridge so today I picked up salads, fruit and yogurt for lunches through the week. I went out to dinner and had salmon with spaghetti squash no drinks, apps, or dessert. I stayed w... Read more
Happy Halloween!

Today is one of my favorite holidays. Scary movies, fun costumes, imagining a world more enchanting than my own, enjoying pumpkin everything, and, of course, eating lots of candy. As a child I loved Trick or Treating, coming home with a pillow c... Read more
Week of Travel

I just got back home after a week four days of travel out of state. Planning was key, but I stuck to my plan. I found I didn't meet my fiber goals at all while out (we don't stay in a hotel with a kitchen and may not always be near a store, so o... Read more
Crash, but don't burn

Yesterday was a rough day. Work was hectic and I only got to eat half of my breakfast (a bagel with strawberry cream cheese) before I ran off to a meeting and was in back to back meetings most of the day. I had a Smart Ones for lunch, but didn't... Read more

Today was a stressful day at work. I'm in a position where I have so much to do, but am pulled into so many meetings that I don't even have time to begin working on what I have to do. I spent 8 hours of my day in meetings, 1.5 hours before the m... Read more
Cooking for the week
Sunday, October 18, 2015      1 comments

Today my husband and I did the cooking for the week. We made two SparkPeople recipies: White Chicken Chili and Slow Cooker Vegetable Curry. The chili was fantastic. The recipe called for cloves which made it slightly sweet. The curry smells real... Read more

After disappearing for quite a while, getting pretty far off track, gaining back everything I'd lost and then some, I'm back again. I started back up on a travel day for work, much to the surprise of my co-workers, but did very well tracking eve... Read more

Last night I didn't sleep well. I woke up at 11:15 pm, 12:45 am, 4:00 am, 8:00 am, 8:30 am, and 11:00 am. I slept in since I was up and down all night and felt exhausted this morning. I had a headache and nausea when I woke up, so I had crackers... Read more
Getting back on track

I haven't been as active on SP the past week or so for a few reasons. My knee took more than a day or two to recover, and once the pain finally stopped I became really sick. The top theory for my mysterious illness is stress and lack of sl... Read more
Injury

Today my knee hurt, a lot. I was still tempted to run and work through it, but after being on my feet all day, taking the stairs, and walking around campus, my knee was swollen and burning when I got home. I definitely pulled or injured somethin... Read more
