Hi there! Yesterday was a rough day. OMG, so. Hungry. So hungry. I tried to just white-knuckle it through, but I was ready to eat the sofa, so we mixed up some VegaOne chocolate with almond flavoring and a bit of salt and OMG it was delicious an... Read more

I'm tired of waiting until things are perfect to live my life. This thought all started a year ago when a family member passed away. Her cancer had ... Read more
15 days on WW
Thursday, October 01, 2015      5 comments

I've had some good success on WW. So far I'm down about 8.5lbs and my husband is down about 5 even though he isn't actually doing WW, he's just eating what I eat - although I remind him to eat more because he has higher calorie requirements. ... Read more

As I say in my other blog, I'm not really sure if this is a sign of desperation or a good plan. There's a bit of fear here that I'll fail yet again, but I have a bit of a plan of what I'm looking for and I had some success with WW previously so ... Read more

Way back in April - pretty much the moment we could schedule it after I finished treatment, we went to Vegas. You'll probably remember that I'm a bit of a Vegas addict and we hadn't been for a year. We hadn't been ANYWHERE for a year. (I spen... Read more

I haven't posted much at all in the last year. A year ago at this time, I was in the middle of stampede AND going through all of the diagnostic steps around breast cancer. While training for a half marathon that I never ran. In late Jul... Read more

Feeling good about yourself: Priceless
Saturday, February 01, 2014      7 comments

I feel amazing. It helps that most things in my life are going really well right now - it makes it easier to stay on plan when I'm happy. It's nice to have no reason to resort to emotional eating. It's great to see success on the scale (and i... Read more
Fat-shaming, fit-shaming and shame-shaming
Thursday, January 30, 2014      9 comments

One day back in October, an image ended up in my Facebook news feed. On the surface, it was simply another piece of fitspiration - something I remain on the fence about. The picture was of a beautiful, fit woman surrounded by her three young c... Read more

Back in my last post, I talked about things I was doing right and things I was doing wrong. And I said I was starting the next day improving those things I wasn't doing well. That was in October. For the record, I'm pretty happy with what... Read more

I've been slacking lately and feeling quite badly about it. I haven't even been logging on to SP (great new homepage btw). I had goals to accomplish by Nov 1 and I haven't met a single one of them and last night I had one of my "OMG I SUCK... Read more

I work in a ridiculously healthy office. Yoga is offered 2x a week, bootcamp 2x a week and both classes are full with waiting lists. 3/5 people on my team are ridiculously active - whether it's running regularly or playing team sports. Er... Read more
My morning weigh in
Tuesday, September 24, 2013      4 comments

I've got to tell you, I was pretty excited about my morning weigh in today. It's not that I've been eating exceptionally well. Or exercising as much as I'd like, but I had a good weigh in. I felt like I was finally down and I'd be able to upd... Read more

Signed up for another one. Yeah, I know. I spent the day trying to figure out if my goal should be distance or time for the next few months. Then I found the Hal Higdon Intermediate 5K plan. I'll be doing distance to increase my 5K time. So... Read more
