Measuring body fat % seems to require a college degree
Monday, February 01, 2010      0 comments

Yeah so, I'd bought a new scale a while back that was supposed to measure body fat %. The entire purpose of those things is to have an easy way to get an estimate of your body fat %, right? So why is it that my scale says 33%, while my tra... Read more
My body is a lying liar who lies
Friday, January 29, 2010      4 comments

I think the worst part about being sick is that in addition to the normal weirdness my body throws at me, all my normal cues of hungry/full, tired/energetic, sore/hella sore are thrown off. I may or may not be bloated right now, since it'... Read more
Plan of attack
Thursday, January 21, 2010      0 comments

If we didn't have obstacles to weight loss, it wouldn't be an achievement when we lose weight, right? It's not like just because I've lost weight so far it gets easier, or that the obstacles and pitfalls I had when I started suddenly disappeare... Read more
My New Year's Resolution?
Monday, January 18, 2010      0 comments

Well, I suppose it's either a late New Year's resolution or an early Chinese New Year's resolution. Whatever. My resolution is to improve my posture, form, balance, flexibility, and hopefully reduce muscle tension with all those improvem... Read more
And I thought LA streets were rough and pothole-y
Wednesday, December 23, 2009      0 comments

I've reached another rough patch in my weight loss goals. Regardless of my tracker, my weight is not a constant slide down. The hardest part is telling myself that my weight fluctuations are perfectly normal, and that I didn't suddenly start d... Read more
Thanksgiving? Hah! Next Challenge!
Monday, November 30, 2009      0 comments

I managed to lose my latest half pound after Thanksgiving. I weighed myself on Sunday, and netted my 40 lb goal. How? Because I'm apparently crazy and addicted to the gym if you ask my friends. Or in detail: 1. I have not skipped a ... Read more
Is boredom an emotion?
Thursday, November 05, 2009      1 comments

If you count boredom as an emotion, I suppose you could say I have some emotional eating issues. My work day is seriously tedious for a good chunk of the day, and when I'm sitting in front of the computer, I munch on snacks. I'm munching... Read more
My temptations aren't the same as yours
Monday, November 02, 2009      3 comments

I think of the comments my friends have made about my food plan, the one I hear most is "I could never do that!" or "what do you eat?". One of my trainer's new clients, when she heard how I eat, said "what? no ice cream?" It's not like I h... Read more
Obsessed? Hardly
Saturday, October 31, 2009      3 comments

Some people (ok one person) thinks I'm a little obsessive about my workout/diet plan. Mostly because I go to the gym a lot and I don't like missing days. And yeah, maybe I talk about my eating/exercise habits more than I should. What can ... Read more
Needs more something...
Monday, October 19, 2009      0 comments

I lost roughly 1 pound last week. Normally I lose between 2 and 3, but last week was rough for me. I didn't exercise in the mornings, and I didn't do as many interval sessions as I normally do. I think I did like, 3, when I normally do 5. I ... Read more
Er... what?
Monday, October 12, 2009      0 comments

So, today my trainer measured my body fat % using calipers. For the curious, when I first started training, he measured me at 38% fat. Next time it was 33%. Now, it's 27%. My scale, on the other hand, has had me at 36% or so body fat for... Read more
Hyperaware
Friday, October 02, 2009      2 comments

It seems that the more weight I lose, the more my slipups seem to affect my weight. I don't punish myself for them, I just notice. When I eat a seafood dish with what is apparently a buttery sauce, I end up bloated. And at this point, it's mu... Read more
Battle scars
Friday, September 11, 2009      0 comments

Personal training and working out is definitely leaving its mark on me, and not just in the areas of weight loss and strength. I'll normally feel the effects the next day in some muscle group or another, but there's a few marks that aren't quit... Read more
Milestone...
Monday, September 07, 2009      3 comments

I've reached my first mile jogging, nonstop except for quick water breaks. That's 13 times around the track, and I'm up to 5 laps without pausing at all. The rest of the time, I alternate a lap of walking and one jogging, until I've done a... Read more
Easy as breathing
Wednesday, September 02, 2009      1 comments

Whoever says something is as 'easy as breathing' obviously is one of those lucky people who actually knows how to breathe correctly. Yes, breathing is somewhat involuntary. Yes, normal people don't randomly hold their breath. It seems I a... Read more
