The Lost Week, or At Least A Couple of Days
Thursday, April 26, 2012      4 comments

I feel useless this week. It started Tuesday when I was nauseous at Masters swimming. I had a little tiny headache too, but I was mainly feeling completely ill, especially after every flipturn. By Tuesday afternoon, I definitely had a migrain... Read more

Today's WG moment: At a pause in the set, Coach says to WG, "Straight and narrow! Straight and narrow! Stay between the lane line and the black marker down the center. THAT's your space!" In a nice way, but emphatically, because she see... Read more
2.25 Again

Well, I'm glad that I'm taking measurements as well as weighing myself, because if I went solely by the scale I would be really, really depressed by now. I still haven't lost any weight. I'm still hovering around those same 2-3 pounds in a ran... Read more
More Mean Girls

We weren't really mean yesterday, more catty after the fact. But seriously, you know there's a problem when even the coach comments on it. So yesterday the Weird Guy (WG) was in my lane again and he was still weird. He continued to swim dow... Read more

This morning I made it to strength training, starting my week off right. I am still kind of amazed at how weak my legs are. We do this series of moves where we're on all fours and we stick one leg out straight and do this long series of lifts an... Read more

As work gets (or continues to be) crazy, my workouts are sliding again. I suppose I shouldn't beat myself up too much, since today is really the only day that I've missed because of work. I'm really good at getting down on myself when I me... Read more
Mean Girl(s)?
Tuesday, April 10, 2012      5 comments

This morning I was reminded how I used to call one woman in my lane "Mean Girl". We're actually very chummy now and I barely remember how she seemed kind of resentful when I got moved into her lane. But today we had a run-in with a new guy. ... Read more

Two weeks since my last weigh-in, and the weight is still in the same range, but I've lost another 2.25 inches. That means after a month of really keeping track of weight and measurements again, my weight is still basically the same, but I'm do... Read more
A Paleo Easter
Thursday, April 05, 2012      3 comments

In case you didn't know, it's Holy Week. For people who are affiliated in any way with church music, that means it's a very busy week. I was trying to cobble together some people for Easter dinner, until I realized I wasn't really in the mood to... Read more
Working Out

I was tired this morning, so I didn't go to strength training. No biggie, I thought, I'll make sure to take a lunch walk. Not as good, but it will do. Only then it started pouring rain at lunch. Well, I still have a little walk up the big hi... Read more

Work has exploded again, like it did in October, November and December, but this time I'm determined not to let it derail me. So even though I could come into work at 7:30 or 8 tomorrow, I'm going to go to Masters swimming from 6:30-7:30. And ... Read more

That's how many inches I've lost in the past couple of weeks! The scale is staying put for now, but I have lost a total of 4.5 inches. I'm thrilled with that!... Read more

"NSV" in weight loss lingo means "non-scale victory". I don't have one yet, but I have a couple of ideas of NSVs I want to shoot for. First, I just bought a cocktail dress (Yay for Nordstrom free shipping both ways!). I often have to go ... Read more
House Update
Monday, March 12, 2012      2 comments

Saturday I went to lunch with a friend and then we drove around and looked at the outsides of a bunch of houses in southern Mass. One of them made us both go "oooo, pretty!" But when I looked at my notes on the house, I was reminded that it had ... Read more
Sugar Buzz
Wednesday, March 07, 2012      1 comments

Yesterday, I was reminded what a real sugar buzz feels like, even though it was just natural sugar. I swam 2800 yards yesterday morning, then ate eggs and a banana at my desk for breakfast. Then we went to a meeting at another attorney's offic... Read more
