Adding in the Activity
Sunday, March 30, 2014      1 comments

So it's that time of year again. The weather is slowly--oh so very slowly--turning warm and I'm coming up with all kinds of great plans for boosting my activity level. It's so much easier for me to be active in the warmer months. The cold really... Read more
Doing Well--Some Updates to the Monk Diet
Sunday, March 23, 2014      2 comments

Well, the new eating plan is working well. I can't quite bring myself to enter in on Spark every day since it's pretty much the same. I have added a couple things to it based on some research I did. Here are the changes I made: 5:45: 1c fru... Read more
Day...4? Maybe 5....
Tuesday, March 18, 2014      2 comments

So I've been on my new eating plan for 5-ish days. Overall, I feel like crap, but it's not because of the food. The food is working out great. For pretty much my whole life (assuming my life started around age 10), I have been addicted to ... Read more
New Meal Plan
Saturday, March 15, 2014      1 comments

Started my new meal plan today. I've really excited. It's a Buddhist-inspired set up of brown rice with a rotation of raw and boiled veggies, miso soup made with the veggie stock, homemade hummus, a variety of beans, and green tea. Add in a coup... Read more
I'm back for the final sprint...

I only have 20 lbs left that I "have" to lose and 30 lbs that I'd like to lose. Much of the weight I've lost over the last few months was accidental, happening due to stress and a limited access to food because of the new job. I was surpri... Read more
Got the Job!! ^_^

Well, I'm a teacher. I got the offer yesterday and it came from the first school I interviewed at. I guess they had to finish interviewing everyone else they received applications from before they could offer it to me, which is what took so long... Read more
Back From Vacation
Tuesday, August 20, 2013      3 comments

Third vacation of the summer is over (a week at my parents') and I'm glad to get back to normal life. I didn't get to my workouts and I only walked two days, but it was much lighter walking than I usually do. I ate pretty well, except for last n... Read more
Feeling Good About the Exercise
Monday, August 12, 2013      1 comments

Still working on my eating a bit, but I think I have a great exercise routine down. I've been walking 3-4 miles a day at a park near my house. It's a dirt path, so there are hills and slopes and plenty of twists and bends to keep the walk i... Read more
Overcoming Fear
Sunday, August 11, 2013      2 comments

At the beginning of the summer, my family went to VA to visit relatives. We ended up spending a day at Busch Gardens, because we always do when we go down there. Somewhere during the day, I decided that I was going to ride a roller coaster. I ha... Read more
Body Appreciation
Friday, August 09, 2013      2 comments

I wandered onto my Spark page this morning, mostly at random. As I was looking around, I noticed the picture I have of myself at 165lbs. I put it there as a reminder to myself that I was once that weight and that I can be there again, but I didn... Read more
Exercise for Enjoyment?
Wednesday, August 07, 2013      0 comments

So I read something interesting. It's not revolutionary or anything, but it came from a different angle, so it struck a different cord with me. I was actually on a depression clinic website, not a weight loss/nutrition one, so the suggestion to ... Read more
The Something Completely Different
Monday, August 05, 2013      1 comments

Ended up cleaning and going to bed, so I didn't double post yesterday. Yay! So here it is: I got a cookbook the other day that I am absolutely in love with. All the recipes in it have 4 main ingredients, and that's it. Admittedly, many of t... Read more
Bad Day for Calories
Sunday, August 04, 2013      2 comments

I still can't quite balance days out of the house with the family. If it's just me, I can bring a snack or hit Subway for a veggie sub. When we go out with Cora, I never think to pack us something because I'm so busy making sure I have all of he... Read more
Been a While--New Goals

Life got crazy again for a bit. Finished school, student teaching, been job hunting.... I have two interviews in the next couple days, so ... Read more

I always look forward to moving, but this time is a little different. We're only moving to a bigger place down the street, so we're moving gradually. I'd prefer taking a week to pack everything up, move it all, then unpack it. Doing little by li... Read more
