After today's post, I decided to try to try a sampler. I went and collected 4 different types of compression garments. 1) The Compression short. It comes down mid-thigh. Made of wicking material. Very comfortable, but very fitted. ... Read more
Awake before noon?
Monday, July 08, 2013      2 comments

Holy moly. I actually woke up before my alarm. I'm attempting to get back into the habit of working out prior to work. I go in much more alert and powerful when I workout prior to work. I work a night shift 4pm - 2am, so my schedule may seem off... Read more
Sunday Musings

Today was great. I woke up way before Dylan was going to dream of waking up, so I did something I wasn't sure if I should do. I walked to the dog park with Riley today. It was quite a trek. 2.5 miles from my house to the park. We stayed fo... Read more
Diet + Exercise = Empowerment + Mental Clarity

Today was crazy, but wonderful. I've been feeling very empowered lately. I'm not sure if it's the exercise or the diet, but I've been KILLING it at work. Maybe it's because I survived my first bout of deliberate sexism in the workplace. I'm wi... Read more
It was actually a pretty good Monday.

Yesterday was a good day. It just felt like I had more control. I'm not sure why. The entire management group was pulled into a meeting room to let us know 3 of the 6 Sr. Managers were let go. If anything I should feel like I was next, but... Read more
Late night ramblings

Walked 2 miles before work, then walked two more at lunch. I'm getting good at tracking EVERYTHING I eat, but I'm trying not to obsess about food like I typically do when I'm tracking. It's Saturday and I have a normal shift of work 4pm - ... Read more

I'm tracking my food again and attempting to use this as an outlet. What's new? I'm married now. YAY! The day went amazing. I have an amazing support system with my best friend, and my in-laws. I had one of the best few days of my life away... Read more
Another one bites the dust

At least it's a steady loss. 1 lb down. I need to find some sort of work/life balance. I can't seem to get up early enough to make it to the gym, shower, and then make it to work, then there are so many nights that I stay late at the offic... Read more

So, I went to meet with a personal trainer yesterday. He was adorable, short man with lots of muscle, but still a little beer belly. He recommended doing circuit training for me. 1-3 sets ;15-20 reps at a time; 30-90secs of rest between se... Read more

Down another lb: 207. It's coming off slowly. I think it partially has to do with me eating half a block of stirfried tofu last night for dinner and not having nature's call yet. That call should reflect next week at least. I've been doing... Read more
Busy Weekend

I'm sorry I don't have much tracked on SP as of late. I have had one hell of weekend. I did the Foam Fest 5k. Thought I may die a few times in there due to inhaling foam accidentally and falling into the water during the lily pad jump (Gia... Read more

21:20 min - 1.63 miles - 13:05 min/mile Really happy with that pace as it was with the dog. Think it's a new PR for me. Felt like I didn't stop running but for a few seconds at a time. My calves started to cramp the 2nd half of the run. ... Read more

Instead of running, I opted for some yoga in the backyard. 20 minutes of breathing, stretching, and Warrior poses has me feeling empowered for the day. This is the last day before the weekend. The last day before a few days of wedding ... Read more
