What's Up With You?
Tuesday, March 06, 2012      3 comments

The latest news is that I think we're trying to buy the house we're living in right now. I'm not so sure that it's going to work out, so I'm stressed about that because we would have to be out by May 1 if it doesn't happen. We've talked about ... Read more

I joined Shape Up Rhode Island ( shapeupri.org/ ) this year because a woman from my church set up a team and invited a bunch of us to join. What the heck, right? Well, it's amazing what a little competition will do! I log in every ... Read more
Feeling Like Myself Again

The half cold I've been nursing for the past couple of weeks seems to have moved on. I wound up taking the entire week off of early-morning workouts and slept in every day and I think that did the trick. I did go for a walk at lunch every sing... Read more

If you can't tell by the subject, I'm exasperated (And xkcd has given me a great way to think about big long exasperated sighs: xkcd.com/1009/ ) So here's the thing. I've gained weight. Again. I weighed myself a few w... Read more

I've always thought, "My legs are strong! I am a fast kicker! My legs are STRONG!" You know what strength training has taught me? My legs are WEAK. We do all these isometric exercises where you have to, say, lay on your back, thrust your hi... Read more

I realize that I have been inconsistent. I blame vacations, though we don't have another one of those planned, well, at all, in the coming months. I'm sure something will come up - a long weekend somewhere nearby - but for now, we're here in Rho... Read more

So I've set up this challenge for myself, which is a means to an end, but I've been thinking more about what I want that end to be. Not that this ever ends, per se, because ideally the steps I take toward healthy living will go on and on. B... Read more
2 Days In and It's All Good

I suppose I technically should have started this whole challenge thing on Sunday, since that's the beginning of the week in most people's minds. Even though it's the sabbath for Christians, which is the 7th day, when God rested. Right? So... Read more
Someday This Will Begin, I Swear

The best laid plans. Am I right? Sunday night was...not so fun. I don't know if I had a brief flu bug, or food poisoning, but my body did not want anything in it, thank you very much, including water. By yesterday morning, I was able to ... Read more

I am apparently useless without an official challenge. I'm sure there are some New Years challenges I could still jump into, but I'm going to set a challenge for myself. So here we go with: ... Read more

The fact that my alarm keeps not going off is not helping my workout efforts. It happened last Saturday as well. Either that, or I am an even deeper sleeper than I originally thought and am fully capable of picking up my phone when the ala... Read more
Day the Second
Wednesday, January 04, 2012      4 comments

Confession 1: I ate some chocolate dipped peanuts last night, which is definitely NOT low-carb. It's not even low-fat. It's just better for me all around if I don't have that stuff in the house. Jason has a whole pile of candies on the coffee ta... Read more
Day 1 (for the Millionth Time)
Tuesday, January 03, 2012      4 comments

Here I am back at Day 1 of living healthy. We got into town last night and I ate some crab rangoon as my last hurrah of eating crap for awhile. And they were gooooood! Today has been so-so. I had some nice eggs for breakfast, then so... Read more

Jason and I are jumping on the resolution bandwagon (like everyone else in the country). We need to get back to healthy living Frankly, this is a perfect time to do it. We are both so saturated with junk food right now (especially sweet s... Read more
Sick of Being Sick

Jason and I are in Vermont. It's 3:49 am and I have been awake since 1:15 am. There are a couple of reasons. One is some family drama that has been swirling around in my head and preventing me from getting a solid night's sleep for almost 2... Read more
