Well, all in all, I think that the Healthy Recipe Exchange party was a hit. At least, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves! The food turned out pretty well, and we have a decent stack of recipes that were shared (emails forthcoming, guys!). Th... Read more
Healthy Recipe Exchange Party
Friday, November 05, 2010      3 comments

So, it's finally here. Tomorrow I am co-hosting a Healthy Recipe Exchange party. Now, the sad thing is that a lot of people who were invited can't make it - apparently 11/6 is a big day for weddings, birthdays and other celebrations - but for t... Read more
Halloween Party Dessert FAIL
Friday, October 29, 2010      3 comments

So, I attempted to make a modified (in the bad way) spark recipe for my office halloween party - they're dessert eyeballs. More specifically, the Oreo Eyeball Treat found here: recipes.sparkpeople.com/

So, this week I've been doing better, food wise, using the Jillian plan (for the most part). A lot of what she says makes sense, so that's good. However, evening snacks have always been a problem for me, and her idea of no carbs at night or eat... Read more
And in today's news: storms & another 5k
Wednesday, October 27, 2010      1 comments

So, today it has been POURING. My office normally has a view of Georgetown, which is pretty nice & cathartic. Occasionally we'll see the president (or other important people) fly by in Marine 1 or on the ground in a motorcade. Today? Nada. Geor... Read more
Denial, even back then (but with a funny story!)

I was just commenting on another blog when a random memory occurred to me that I felt the need to share. I think I've mentioned before that right now I'm hovering around the lowest weight I can consciously remember being, 153 which was my weight... Read more
Minor Heart Attack (but it's all good!)
Monday, October 25, 2010      5 comments

Just a quick note/vent... totally had a minor heart attack on Friday afternoon when I received a call from the hospital confirming my surgery for next months (three weeks from today, actually - GAH!). They said "so this is outpatient, right?" ... Read more
Work Stress & Venting
Friday, October 22, 2010      2 comments

So, as I've vented before, I am trying to get back on track and make some progress before my deadline of November 15. This week HAS been better, so that's good. However, now there is some additional work stress being thrown into the mix. W... Read more
One Step Forward, Two Steps Back
Wednesday, October 20, 2010      2 comments

What is that saying? The road to hell is paved with good intentions? Well, I feel like that about sums up my progress recently. I try to make the effort, I really do. I say the right things, make smart decisions, and then? Pizza for dinn... Read more
Back and Ready
Friday, October 15, 2010      5 comments

So, as I said before, I was in Salt Lake City for the last couple of days (work trip). It was fun, a LOT of walking - site visits to hotels and the convention center, and a LOT of eating. For the most part, making good food choices was easy (o... Read more
Going (a little) M-I-A
Monday, October 11, 2010      3 comments

After a horrible weekend (diet wise - but great football wise - GO SKINS!) I will be going MIA for a few days this week. Tomorrow I get to head to the airport and hop a plane to Salt Lake City. I've never been before, so I'm sure it'll be inte... Read more

So, today is my boss's birthday. Since there was also another office birthday this month, we planned a celebration to take place this afternoon. Thankfully, it fell to me and another person to arrange. Typically, birthdays in my office are... Read more
Music Shuffle

I stole this from Anne (AWOLF24) who stole it from Elisha (CA_2_VATEACHER). So, here goes nothing! Just keep in mind that this is based off of my nano... which has a limited (more workout appropriate) selection. I'm sure that my regular ipod w... Read more
Giving it another go at the 5k
Monday, October 04, 2010      1 comments

As I'm sure I've shared before, a couple of months ago I participated in my first ever 5k. And it was a complete disaster. Between the near drowningness (it was POURING rain) and the course not being marked and running/walking VERY slowly - no... Read more
