Update and Plans

Posted under Nutrition, Plans and Goals, Running, Uncategorized - Sep 21st, 11 - 1 Comment

I haven’t posted in a while, but I’m still running. My weekly mileage is pretty low, though. I need to bump it up. Right now I’m at only about 9-10 miles running, 20 miles on the stationary bike. Next month I’m going to get an electric bike for my commute, so that will add some […]

Treadmill Desk & Bike & Run

Posted under Health, Nutrition, Running - Jul 29th, 11 - Comments Off on Treadmill Desk & Bike & Run

So this week, I finally rigged up a desk for my treadmill. I have to spend hours working on the computer every day and I’m lucky enough to get to work from home several days a week. So I decided to rig up a shelf-desk so I can walk slowly while working. It’s super-easy to […]

11 Days Later

Posted under Health, Nutrition, Plans and Goals - Feb 27th, 11 - 2 Comments

I have decided I am going to try to lose just a few pounds, to get below 160 consistently. I really feel like I will run faster if I am lighter. I’m not dieting, though. I’m going to do a combination of cutting back on some of my treats (smaller soy lattes, only one Cherry […]

I Know, I Know

Posted under 2008, Nutrition, Plans and Goals, Running, Veg*n - Apr 16th, 08 - Comments Off on I Know, I Know

It has been way too long since I last posted! I’m in a holding pattern right now as far as weight maintenance goes– which is GOOD! I’ve been too busy to think about it and I haven’t really been eating right, but I’m still easily maintaining size 14 (sometimes 12.) However, I don’t have as […]

Lunches

Posted under 2007, Nutrition, Veg*n - Feb 17th, 07 - Comments Off on Lunches

I hope to start posting pictures and descriptions of my vegan lunch boxes. I have a collection of interesting lunch carriers (one laptop lunch, one bento, and one Corningware, plus a bento on the way, and I hope to buy an Indian tiffin soon.) Usually, I just carry rice and veggies or leftovers, but I […]

178.4

Posted under 2007, Health, Intuitive, Nutrition, Veg*n, Weigh-Ins - Feb 6th, 07 - 2 Comments

178.4 was yesterday’s weight, and the official weight of the week, but today, I was 177.1. It’s driving me nuts that I can’t remember something I wanted to talk about earlier. It has something to do with my new attitudes about food. It’s so refreshing to feel “normal.” How strange that I had to go […]

179.8

I’ve switched back to weighing in pounds. It’s easier, and it’s not affecting me as much emotionally as it used to. Sometimes, I even forget to weigh every day! (As long as I keep up with SparkPeople, I seem to keep losing… slowly, but surely.) Well, I’m not making my goal of bed by 11pm […]

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. […]

Confession

Posted under 2006, Nutrition, Plans and Goals - Oct 30th, 06 - Comments Off on Confession

I have to confess that I haven’t really been working hard on trying to lose weight in the past two months.  I have been maintaining, by not having pop and a lot of candy, but I need to work harder on getting rid of the bad eating habits that are keeping me heavy.  I’ve been […]

Update for October

Posted under 2006, Nutrition, Plans and Goals, Veg*n - Oct 12th, 06 - Comments Off on Update for October

I know it’s been a while since I posted.  I think it’s because I’m bored with weight loss talk.  From me, I mean.  I’m interested in how other people are doing, but for me… I know what I’m supposed to do.  Actually, with my diet, I am doing it.  I’m maintaining my 6.5 kilo loss […]
