Wednesday nights are activity nights for the Young Women (age 12-17) at church. Tonight my friend Rachel is coming to talk with the girls about nutrition. I'm hoping that the fact that she's young and peppy will keep the girls interested and t... Read more

Jason has lost about 20 pounds since he started running and watching what he eats. "Watching what he eats" basically means not eating everything in sight, not cleaning other peoples' plates, and not eating the cookie and the chips with his Subwa... Read more
Working It Out

There are some days when I feel like I'm just not very good at my job. Today was one of those days. I felt defeated and close to tears when I left the office. I decided that I wanted to walk. Ellipticaling was on my schedule today, but I ne... Read more

It's 90-freaking-degrees! In Providence! Rhode Island! Last week we were being flooded and this week the National Weather Service has a fire warning out because the winds are high, the temperature is high and the humidity is low. ... Read more
New Week

We're always so busy on the weekends that I never seem to make a Monday morning workout. Jason fell asleep on the couch last night at 10:30 and when I woke him up he said, "Let's go to bed" so we did. And somehow I still had a hard time getti... Read more

As I mentioned before, last weekend we went hiking. We woke up, ate breakfast, then hit the road down to Connecticut. An hour and a half later, we made a pit stop and I realized I was STARVING. I thought the rest stop would have a little stor... Read more

This morning I had planned to go swimming for 40 minutes. Instead, I fell asleep with the beginnings of a migraine and woke up with the same migraine. Note to self: it's better to just take the two dollar migraine pill initially than to down 8 E... Read more

I got a swimsuit for Hawaii! Land's End won't let me copy their picture, so I'll give you the link: tinyurl.com/y8gou9f . I wound up getting this one not so much for its slenderizing properties, but because I thought the criss-cro... Read more
Tried To Run...

Well, after a little more than a week since the last time I tried running, I thought I would give it a try this morning. I managed to do 1 jogging interval and that was it. My knees were killing me. Sigh. So I stopped the treadmill and... Read more
The Pill
Monday, March 29, 2010      0 comments

I emailed Rachel, my nutrition and healthy living guru*, about this and thought I would post and see if anyone has any thoughts. Is it possible I'm not losing weight because I'm on The Pill? *Everyone needs one of these in their lives. I'... Read more

Of Bums and Swimming
Friday, March 26, 2010      2 comments

No swim this morning after all. I was up lateish and I know this weekend I'll be extremely active. First the swim-a-thon, then we're going hiking with our friend who does crazy things like trail races in the Alps. Though to be fair to him, he to... Read more
Water Baby

Last night after work I went for a swim and managed to do 60 lengths of the pool in 30 minutes. Exactly the pace I'm shooting for on Saturday at the swim-a-thon. I started out slowly, so I think if I start out at a medium pace, I can definitely ... Read more
Chubby Babies

Babies are adorable. Chubby babies even moreso. That's why articles like this ( tinyurl.com/yemglpo ) one, stating that maybe the chub on your baby could indicate an early slide into obesity, make me so mad! It's not the only... Read more

Apparently now my knees are rebelling. The rebelliousness is just moving up my legs, I guess. The next couple times I run, I expect my hips will hurt. Last night after work I went to the gym, planning to do some strength training and to get... Read more
