Man, I really need to tone up. I saw a photo of myself and my teammates from this weekend's Cinciditarod race on a local news site... and holy hell, my thighs are still monstrous and they didn't airbrush my cellulite out! Yikes! ... Read more
The Craziest Weekend EVER
Monday, March 07, 2011      3 comments

The best way to describe Saturday is the following: Absolute insanity. I woke up an hour earlier than usual for my newly-rescheduled Saturday morning run. It was pouring outside, as expected, so it was a very very wet 7 miles! Luckily ... Read more
Super-full!
Friday, March 04, 2011      1 comments

I had a very, very sensible breakfast and lunch today because I knew the office chili cook-off (which I entered) would provide me with a lot of other food to cram in my mouth. For breakfast I had my usual: oatmeal. I topped it with cinnamon... Read more

A Quick Morning Update
Thursday, March 03, 2011      2 comments

I normally don't blog this early in the morning, but there are two things I need to get down and share! 1) Water weight! I normally don't weigh myself more than once a week; if I do weigh myself a second time, it's never the day after my We... Read more
Why I Want to Kick My Scale (and Slap the Stupid Out of Myself)
Wednesday, March 02, 2011      2 comments

I weighed in today, as usual. I always dread the scale, as mentioned in previous posts, and assume that there will be an increase in the number from last week. Well, unfortunately there was... 138.6 -- That's 1.6 pounds more than last ... Read more
K-K's Confessions: Part I
Monday, February 28, 2011      3 comments

I have lots of little vices and not-so-secret secrets that I think I'll share once in a while with you guys. Why not show the world that despite everything great I may have accomplished, I'm far FAR from perfect! Part I -- Cookies. At ... Read more
Why I Don't Blame My Family (And Why You Shouldn't Either!)
Monday, February 28, 2011      6 comments

My family is notorious for over-analyzing, over-scrutinizing, and over-worrying. Both sides of my family are like that, though in different ways. When I'm having an internal struggle with myself, including weight-related issues, I can usually tr... Read more
Size: An Ode to Spark People
Friday, February 25, 2011      10 comments

I've always found it more satisfying to go down a pant size than losing a few pounds. Yeah, the scale telling me I weigh less is fantastic news and always brightens my mood, but when pants start swimming on me... it's damn near orgasmic. I ... Read more
me + running = omgFOODNOW!
Thursday, February 24, 2011      4 comments

I have been absolutely, 100%, insanely ravenous lately! I had a Gu before my run (Vanilla... not as good as Chocolate but much better than Raspberry!) and when I got home I had my planned dinner (scrambled egg whites with herbs and spices o... Read more
Hello again, 137!
Wednesday, February 23, 2011      1 comments

Why is it that nearly every week when I weigh-in, my mind goes into a negative place? I always think, "Oh, it'll probably be more than last week," or, "If it's the same as last time, I'll be thankful." Well, those thoughts entered my mind, as us... Read more
Thinking Aloud
Tuesday, February 22, 2011      2 comments

There are some things going on that may affect my progress, both in the scale and with my measurements. At the moment I'm not sure if these changes will be negative or positive (or nonexistant) but I just want to jot them down so if things do ch... Read more
All I Wanted in a Weekend
Monday, February 21, 2011      2 comments

FRIDAY after work, I was immediately thankful it was the weekend. I had an emotional week and wanted to do nothing but enjoy the nice weather and relax. When I got home, the boyfriend and I decided to go for a walk to get some stuff at CVS (abou... Read more
Tea Time
Friday, February 18, 2011      3 comments

For my entire 25 year life, I've hated tea. There are only a couple of things in the world that I can say I hate, and tea is one of them. I think it started when I was young and my mother's remedy to make me better when I was home sick: gin... Read more
It's A New Dawn

Soonafter yesterday evening's blog post I left for my usual Wednesday night group run. Unlike previous runs, this one was in GREAT weather! The sun was setting in a clear sky, the wind was calm and refreshing, and it was over 60 degrees! Of... Read more
