Portabella mushroom experiment results!
Thursday, October 15, 2009      9 comments

Not for me. No sir. I really gave it a fighting chance. They smelled delicious and the stuffing in the mushrooms was great. But halfway through it, I realized that no matter how much I want to convince myself that it's delicious... it total... Read more
I am trying a new food today!
Thursday, October 15, 2009      9 comments

I've always prided myself on loving food and trying new things. I'll try pretty much any food, no matter how weird it may be. If I don't like it... whatever! I'll either try it again if cooked another way, or just acknowledge that it's just not ... Read more
Oh, plantain chips! (A lesson in portion control.)
Monday, October 12, 2009      6 comments

I cannot control myself around plantain chips lately. I don't know what's up with me! I normally have NO issue with these being around. Sure, they're yummy, but I never had a problem just counting out a serving and eating it. Today, howeve... Read more
What I used to eat.
Sunday, October 11, 2009      10 comments

I just saw a commercial for Qdoba and had a bit of a flash-back to what I used to eat before I joined SparkPeople. Usually for breakfast I'd grab something like a Luna bar or a Carnation Instant Breakfast from the market across the street f... Read more
I've been slacking and need The Spark.

I really need to get 100% on track again. My original goal was to be 135 pounds by my birthday and *eventually* get to 130 sometime in early 2010. But when I hit 140 a couple of weeks ago I changed my goal to be 130 by the end of the year s... Read more
Recuperation week.

So, I didn't have the flu and luckily my fever broke Tuesday afternoon. I went back to work on Wednesday so this was a nice, short week! I still have a little cough and my nose is running a bunch, but I'm so much better than I was! Because ... Read more
It's not the flu, but...

So, I got tested for the flu yesterday and my tests came back negative. Yesterday my temperature was as low as 98.8 and as high as 100.8... just yo-yo-ing... However, I still have a fever and continue to sweat my butt off (then freeze, then... Read more
Influenza?
Monday, October 05, 2009      5 comments

I was always really happy to have never gotten the flu, to my knowledge. However, looks like that's biting me in the @$$ now! Haha. Yesterday I started coughing but I attributed it to having sang and danced and drank a lot after my 5K on Sa... Read more
Another fantastic weekend.

Friday after work I realized I had nothing better to do, so I decided to drive down to Lexington (just shy of an hour and a half south of me) to visit my friends. We ended up doing our usual: Rock Band, bar-hopping, etc. It was a lot of fun... u... Read more
Undou Kai
Friday, October 02, 2009      4 comments

At my job, we had an "Undou Kai" event. Undou Kai loosely translates to "field day" in Japanese. It was a semi-competitive 2-mile run around our office buildings. I ran it in 16:30! My split was 8:15! That's crazy! So it seems that for ever... Read more
My last month at 23.
Thursday, October 01, 2009      5 comments

So, my 24th birthday is exactly one month away. Because my birthday is the day after Halloween, I'm having the usual hybrid birthday/Halloween party at my friends' house. Wee! I'm not sure what I'm going to be for Halloween. I've been plann... Read more

Slowly but surely...

...I'm in the 130s! (139.8, to be exact!) For the first time since my brief skinny stint at age 18! And, before that, I hadn't been in the 130s since probably 10th grade (age 14-15). Sweet! Now, I weighed myself last week as well and w... Read more
Mrs. Fields, taunting me.
Tuesday, September 29, 2009      4 comments

My coworker has a not-so-secret admirer who keeps sending her baskets of tasty items. Of course, before the huge basket of fruit arrived, a bucket of Mrs. Fields products were delivered. I chose the butterscotch blondie becuase I *love* buttersc... Read more

Sunday, September 27, 2009      18 comments

Even the word "elation" doesn't come close to how I feel right now! This is just completely surreal. I woke up early Saturday morning (even earlier than I do for work!) and did my interview in the Northern KY Convention Center. It was reall... Read more
