Overdue update(s).

Wow. The last time I made a blog post, I'd been diagnosed with 2 herniated discs. Much has happened since then. - I have a new chiropractor who has done wonders for me. The pain isn't as horrific as it used to be. - Once the (now ongoi... Read more
There’s always something.

As some of you already know, I’ve been mostly walking since this past summer. I was diagnosed with sciatica and along with walking being good for mental health, it also helps alleviate the sciatica pain. Well, I underwent a MRI test last week ... Read more
Keep on walking.

Since my last blog post, I’ve not stopped walking. I do it 3-5 times weekly and the minimum I’ll walk is 1 mile each time. Walking alleviates some of the pain from sciatica, so I do much more than a mile 98% of the time. I started seeing a chiro... Read more
Got f***ing angry... then walked.

As I mentioned in my last post, there’s a chance that maybe I’m going through an overall transformation. I don’t know for sure, but whatever it is, I’m dealing with everything by myself - little to no support. Yesterday, another straw broke this... Read more

Thus far, since returning to exercise 02.17.2018, I've lost 12 pounds (I think). But now, I think I'm getting rid of emotional & mental weight too. I'm a very private person, online and in real life, so I don't say much here. But suffice i... Read more
Finally... back at it.

It has been a long time. But on Saturday 02.17.2018, after almost 16 months, I went back to the gym for the first time. I was diagnosed with a medical issue in April 2016. I was fine at first - still going to the gym, trying to improve my d... Read more
Coming back (slowly but surely).

I started a new job in September 2015. The commute was pretty bad - so bad that I didn't have time to go to the gym. On weekends, I was often so tired from commuting that I didn't even bother going - I mostly slept. (Studying for my professional... Read more

Good day. I started a new job yesterday, and the commute is long. (I plan to move nearer by the end of the year.) I'm studying for a major exam. I exercise 3-5 times per week (usually averaging 4 times per week) and still won't lose weight. It'... Read more

I just weighed myself. 2 weeks ago, I was finally down 10 lbs. Now I'm back up 6 lbs. IDK WTF is going on. I drink 8 cups of water per day. I've gotten better with tracking my food (please see my last blog entry about that). I exercise 3-5... Read more
Count from 1 to infinity.

I faithfully counted calories until recently. Honestly, I got sick and d@mn tired of it - it seems neverending. Anyone else feel this way? If not, how do you stick to it?... Read more
Still running.

Since finishing the SparkPeople Couch To 5K Your Way (rookie running program), I run 2-3 times per week, usually 1.25 mi. each time (NOT counting warm-up and cool-down). I wear compression sleeves because I get bad shin splints, and they help a ... Read more
Here we go again.

Sigh. Gained yet another pound, in spite of doing Couch To 5K. In the past 2 months, went from 15 lbs. lost, to putting back on 5 lbs. Been doing this for over 1 year now, and based on my SparkPeople report (and my own common sense), this isn't ... Read more
Run for it.

I began SparkPeople's Couch To 5K program at the end of January. I figured it'd be a good way to spice up my exercise routine. I'm currently in Week 7. It has taken me longer than the prescribed 8 weeks - I had to restart 1 (or was it 2?) week d... Read more
1 year today.

Wow. Can't believe that today marks 1 year since joining SparkPeople. I've stuck it out thus far; may as well continue on the road, even when it aggravates me. What have I accomplished within the past year? - Learned about calorie int... Read more
Almost 1 year in...

and still like a yo-yo. I'd finally lost 15 lbs. after almost 1 year. A couple people asked if I was losing weight. I was feeling good about myself, thinking that maybe the Couch To 5K program was what I needed to jump-start the weight loss... Read more
