Tuesday June 2 I know I should just stop, but I have a morbid curiosity. Today I'm back down 2 pounds. In other news, I actually did some strength training this morning in lieu of swimming. I had to drive to work today (and will again tom... Read more

As of this morning, I'm up 6 pounds in one week. I now weigh 1 pound more than I did at the beginning of January. Something is going on, and I don't know what it is... Regardless, I am pressing on. Today I swam 2400 yards and am walking to ... Read more

Talk about a rude awakening. I stepped on the scale this morning on a lark and it told me I am up 4 pounds! I totally call shenanigans on my scale! There is NO way. I've been eating well within my calorie range, and have kept my sodium low for t... Read more

I think the jogging may have to wait until I can get the right shoes. I have wide, flat feet (a la Fred Flintstone. Very pretty. Very feminine.), along with weak ankles. Yesterday morning I could barely walk, my ankles hurt so bad. I had pl... Read more
Jogging Aftermath and Weight
Tuesday, May 26, 2009      0 comments

Hi there. I am very, very sore. Apparently jogging works all these muscles that swimming completely ignores because, as I mentioned, I am very sore. You would think the soreness would be a deterrent, right? No, this is how crazy I am. The f... Read more

Yesterday I went for a jog with Jason. It reminded me that I hate jogging. Oh right. I was lame and woke up too late to swim, so I thought I would head out with Jason. He was shocked that with all my swimming, I couldn't keep up with him on... Read more

The last couple of mornings I have had the worst time getting out of bed. I wake up on my own at about 5:30, then Tiny the cat nudges me out of bed to feed him at about 5:45, and I know I should get up and go for an hour swim, but I just can't. ... Read more

Recently I told a friend of mine that I want to lose 30 more pounds. She looked at me like I was insane. I told her, well, I want to get down to 160, and let her do the math. She said, "Oh" because I'm sure she had no idea that I weigh 190. I te... Read more

Long silences usually indicate a relapse into bad eating ways. Not true this time. OK, so I did eat some junk when we went out of town last weekend. I also hiked, so it evens out. I have been doing pretty well with the eating. This wee... Read more
Podcast Recommendation
Tuesday, May 05, 2009      1 comments

I walk to and from work at least once a week and on those 2 mile treks I like to listen to fitness and health podcasts. FYI, there are a lot of BORING podcasts out there. I just want to ask some people why they think they're being interesting en... Read more
Saturday Weigh-In: The FINALLY! Edition
Monday, May 04, 2009      1 comments

The scale moved. I lost 1 1/2 pounds last week. And another 3/4 inch or so. Jason would probably be a total downer at this point and tell me how weight fluctuates and the 1 1/2 pounds may mean nothing. (he also likes to tell me how there's ... Read more
New Swimming Personal Record

Today I swam 2000 yards straight, which...I don't think I've ever done, actually. I always swam short distances on swim team so never had to do any real distance training. When I got to the pool this morning, it was super crowded. There was alre... Read more

After watching The Biggest Loser last night*, I was all fired up to swim this morning. However, I had an early work meeting. My options were to catch the 7:48 bus or the 8:08 bus to make the 8:30 meeting. Considering the 8:08 bus has been consis... Read more

I swam today without using fins because the fins have caused their own set of problems. Namely, blisters on 6 out of 10 toes. I found a set of fins that some people have said are good for wide feet, so I may be investing in a set of my own. My s... Read more
Saturday Weigh-In: SRSLY?!
Monday, April 27, 2009      0 comments

Guess what? I weigh exactly the same as I did last week. And the week before. To the tenth of a pound, says my digital scale. Is it too much to just want the numbers to change a little? Preferably in a downward direction? I did lose an inch... Read more
