It's Always Darkest Before The Dawn
Wednesday, February 16, 2011      7 comments

After an awful, headache-filled day at work I came home and talked to my boyfriend about our money issue. We've had this talk before, at which point he started applying for jobs to help us out. Before the first talk, he stopped paying for g... Read more
Time for a *real* rant.
Wednesday, February 16, 2011      6 comments

Bear with me. This may get ugly. I posted a while back about how I'm worried about finance for the first time in my life. As if it wasn't bothering me enough, I found out yesterday that my rent is being raised $50/mo starting in July (when ... Read more
A weekend of gluttony... oh well!

As my voice slowly came back, my sinuses started getting more congested. As I mentioned, Saturday I still went for a run even though my nose was pretty awful and gross. Sunday I did yoga with Stepf and sipped tea in between vinyasas. I cleaned t... Read more
I ran 9.5 miles... and my nose followed suit.
Saturday, February 12, 2011      9 comments

As I've blogged about all this week, I've barely had a voice. Well, after taking the Z-Pack antibiotics I was prescribed Wednesday my throat is much better... but definitely not the post-nasal drip and now I'm super freaking congested like no on... Read more
Sick? Me? Nahhh...

When I'm getting sick, I know it... but I'll never admit it to myself. I'm a firm believer in "mind over matter". That's how I was able to run 4.5 miles on Wednesday even though I had no voice and I was feeling slightly congested. Mind... o... Read more
I'm feelin' a little burpee.
Thursday, February 10, 2011      4 comments

I saw someone post about burpees on the message board but never read the post because I figured it was about yet another miracle diet pill on the market. Then I went to a SP member page and saw that she and her brother are doing a "hundred burpe... Read more
Annoyances
Wednesday, February 09, 2011      6 comments

Right now I'm slightly annoyed by two things: 1) My health. Right now I have no voice. My throat is dry, I speak in a whisper, and no matter what I drink or how many lozenges I suck on, my throat feels like it's a desert. It started being ... Read more
Perpetual Learning on Spark People

I've been a member of SP actually since 2006. I joined when I hit a low point, having just quit an organized sport in college due to needing to concentrate on my studies. That resulted in beginning to gain back the 25-30 pounds I'd lost in my fi... Read more
I ate trans fat. Lots and lots of trans fat.

I knew this weekend was going to be full of food and probably not the good kind either. I made some cake balls for a superbowl party I was invited to yesterday. I made healthier substitutions for the cake mix itself (using apple sauce in place o... Read more
This is what happens when you test your limits.

This morning I had yet another one of my group training runs to prep for my half marathon in May. When we run on Saturdays, the distance depends on if you're training for the half or the full marathon. For instance, today if you are planning on ... Read more
My Biggest Frustration
Friday, February 04, 2011      4 comments

Money. Dough. Dinero. Cash. I'm definitely not in the poor house, but I'm not happy with my finances lately. Here's how things are right now... My boyfriend moved in with me when he started grad school in August 2010. He's not working ... Read more
I love "Gu"!
Thursday, February 03, 2011      2 comments

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, I am at the point in my half marathon training where I should start looking at what kind of electrolyte substance I want to use during my race. There are so many options out there: gels, jelly beans, powde... Read more
An "Off" Woo-Hoo Wednesday
Wednesday, February 02, 2011      1 comments

Today has been really weird, pretty much starting at 6am when I woke up. I realized upon waking up that I didn't take out the clothes I planned on wearing to work, which I usually do before going to bed. My boyfriend is still asleep when I ... Read more
All About Supplements
Tuesday, February 01, 2011      4 comments

Yay! Supplements! I take many things to improve my daily nutrition. Yeah, yeah... I know... I should just get it from whole foods. Whatever. This works for me. +VITAMINS+ I currently take VitaFusion Gummy Vites for Adults in the mornin... Read more
New Version of an Old Fave: Tuna Melt
Monday, January 31, 2011      3 comments

I love tuna melts. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner... they're one of my favorite meals! I made one for dinner tonight and it got me thinking about how different tonight's tuna melt was from the tuna melts I used to make when I was less healthy. ... Read more
