"Insanity" - not a misnomer.
Monday, October 26, 2015      3 comments

Since I got Beachbody On Demand, I've been playing around with all the different programs. It has quite a lot of full programs as well as sneak peeks of newer ones that aren't available for "free" on demand. I did a couple of 21 Day Fix workouts... Read more
Crummy Update
Tuesday, September 08, 2015      2 comments

Oh hey. I haven't worked out or logged my food since last Monday. The Monday that was a week before yesterday. That one. I had a really rough period and was achey and lethargic all week. And the horrible heat and humidity did a number on m... Read more
Well THAT hurts.

Well. Yesterday was the first day of week 3 of T25. Maybe you noticed that I stopped blogging the individual days (or you didn't). That's not because I stopped doing them. It's just because I realized that I wasn't going to have much to say day ... Read more
Second week of T25 - NAILED IT
Monday, August 17, 2015      1 comments

Today was the first day of week 2 of T25. (Saturday was a double workout and Sunday was a rest day) Strangely, I wasn't watching the clock the whole time and when I finally looked at it and saw there were only 9 minutes left, I decided I wa... Read more
T25 - Day 3 (Total Body Circuit)
Thursday, August 13, 2015      2 comments

On the T25 calendar there are two boxes to choose from when checking off each workout. There's "Nailed it" and "Barely made it." Usually I feel there should be a third box that represents a middle ground. Like, "I wouldn't say I nailed it so muc... Read more
T25 - Day 2 (Speed 1.0)
Tuesday, August 11, 2015      2 comments

Hey look. I made it to day 2. I have that all-over comfortable "I did something!" soreness that I love. Today was Speed 1.0, which I gotta admit, (and I remember the others from last time) is my favorite. And I may go so far as to admit it... Read more
T25 - Day 1 (Cardio)
Monday, August 10, 2015      4 comments

Well. I wrote most of a quite smashing blog entry about how I'm starting over with T25 and blogging about it to make sure I keep at it. (Think of how disappointed you would be if I just quit...er, right?) ...but then my internet died and th... Read more
Motivation is so much easier when there's payoff.
Tuesday, January 20, 2015      9 comments

Last September/October, I was running two miles a day at lunch then going to the gym after work, or doing a workout DVD when I got home. I was eating as little processed food as possible, making all of my food, eating tons of veggies, and using ... Read more
I want the brave girl to come back.

A few years ago, when I lost 40-some pounds, I was a machine. I worked out before work, during work, after work. I tried everything. A boxing class, a HIIT class, kickboxing. But I needed more. I bit the bullet and signed up for a water aerobics... Read more
Why do they have to trash talk? (rant)

Since going back on McDougall, I've settled in nicely to the McD forums. They move pretty slow, but they're a great resource and they keep me motivated and on-track. But yesterday someone posted about, basically my idol, Isa Moskowitz, badm... Read more
Spicy Jackfruit Chili (attempt 1)
Monday, March 31, 2014      5 comments

I've had this can of jackfruit in my car for about two weeks. After looking for it for ages, it took me this whole time to figure out what to do with it. Every year my brewery sponsors a chili cookoff, and this past year, there were zero v... Read more
A good a time as any to re-up.
Thursday, January 02, 2014      5 comments

With this new year, a very obvious time to start eating right again, to start working out again, comes actual TIME for me to do those things. The entire month of December is a blur of 10-12 hour days, being up before daylight and home after dark... Read more
What would you do? (not weight-lossy)
Tuesday, December 10, 2013      13 comments

Let me preface this by saying... I know the answer. I mean, I know the answer any well-adjusted person would give to a well-adjusted person who asked this question. But that standard answer is a little bit tricky for me. The question: I hav... Read more
Priorities. Reset.
Wednesday, November 13, 2013      8 comments

I was at the point where something had to give. I could not keep going the way I was going. All of the days, all of my "free" time rationed out and pre-scheduled and divided. Workout schedule taped to my wall, Sharpie nearby to mark off the days... Read more
Derby update plus HAIR PIC... yes, a hair pic.
Tuesday, October 29, 2013      8 comments

Practice last night was kind of brutal. I was irritated by the coach, and was angry through most of it. Having a coach who doesn't skate has always ended badly -- they believe they are fulfilling their job by standing there with a whistle yelli... Read more
