Year in Review/ Resolutions

Posted under 2006, Plans and Goals - Dec 28th, 06 - Comments Off on Year in Review/ Resolutions

It’s time for a year in review post and a New Year’s Resolutions post. Last year, I removed all of my archives in hope of a fresh start. It only marginally worked… I lost about 17 pounds this year, but am not fit at all. I’m going to leave up this year’s archives. 2006 in […]

Still 82.4

Posted under 2006, Veg*n, Weigh-Ins - Dec 22nd, 06 - Comments Off on Still 82.4

Haven’t lost… but I didn’t gain!  Which is great, considering I had a terrible month, school-wise.  Boy am I glad the semester is over.  My classes were great, but I wasn’t. I can’t remember what I wrote before, but I’m working on going more raw with my diet.  More fresh fruits and veggies.  This does […]

Videoblogging?

Posted under 2006, Documentary, Plans and Goals - Dec 18th, 06 - Comments Off on Videoblogging?

Lately, I’ve been flirting with the idea of making a video documentary of my weight loss progress.  I have training and experience as a broadcast journalist and I have access to decent equipment for shooting, editing, and narration.  I might do that as my fitness project for 2007, and post mini clips here or have […]

Soy, Again

Posted under 2006, Nutrition - Dec 13th, 06 - Comments Off on Soy, Again

I have got to stop consuming soy. I’ve gotten into a coffee with soymilk phase that is not doing me any favors.  It’s been adding up to less than a cup a day, but I can feel the effects.  I think it’s even making me gain weight, or at least, keeping me from losing weight. […]

82.4

Posted under 2006, Weigh-Ins - Dec 11th, 06 - Comments Off on 82.4

I’m down to 82.4… but it’s taken me about three weeks to get here.  It has not been a great few months.  The semester has been hard on me.  For about the past month, I have not eaten breakfast and have barely eaten dinner.  (Yes, it’s a bit frustrating that eating so little has not […]

Weigh-In: 82.8

Posted under 2006, Body Image, Running, SparkPeople, Weigh-Ins - Nov 21st, 06 - Comments Off on Weigh-In: 82.8

Downward progress!  Go body! It doesn’t want that extra weight any more than I do! My official weight for the week is 82.8. My body is doing what it wants, and I’m okay with that. My goal is living a healthy life and letting my body get to its natural healthy weight. At the Y […]

Cathe: B&G

Posted under 2006, Workouts 2006 - Nov 16th, 06 - Comments Off on Cathe: B&G

Last night, I did part of Cathe’s Butts & Guts workout.  It’s a good one!  I couldn’t do the whole torture session because I only had the amount of time my son was in a class, but I did most of the Timesaver, and it was good!  Today is an easy run/ elliptical on campus.  […]

Weigh-In: 83

Posted under 2006, Running, Weigh-Ins - Nov 15th, 06 - Comments Off on Weigh-In: 83

My first week faithfully following Spark and I ended up at 83.  Good news! Downward progress! My Spark buddy and I are trying to lose 1.3 a week until the end of the year. That’s at the high end of the range at which I am successful, but I’m willing to give it a try.  […]

I Needed That

Posted under 2006, Workouts 2006 - Nov 12th, 06 - Comments Off on I Needed That

I did go for a run and it was great!  I downloaded one of the Nike Sports mixes off iTunes and followed that. I got to the Capitol in just over 15 minutes!  Last time, it was nearly 19 minutes.  Tuesday, I’m going to use the speed mix at the track on campus. I feel […]

Depressed

Posted under 2006, Plans and Goals - Nov 12th, 06 - Comments Off on Depressed

I’ve been depressed for the past few days.  I need to force myself to go for a run in the sunshine as soon as the Eagles game is over.  I hope there’s still some sunlight left.  My eating has not been great.  I have to plan better for Thursdays, which are tough days for me.  […]
