BMR, oh, BMR... and another new recipe!
Sunday, May 24, 2009      4 comments

When I came back to SP back in late March, my BMR was 1817 and now it's down to 1801. I can't help but be deterred by this, though I know this change is inevitable and is actually a sign of progress, in a way. I also made a new recipe! ... Read more

I currently weigh under 150 pounds! I lost another 0.8 pounds in the past week (that seems to be my lucky number lately, haha) and now weigh 149.4 pounds. Woo! I haven't been in the 140s since 2004! Also, my measurements are changing some more! ... Read more
EVERYONE -- Help me pick my new SP username!!!
Thursday, May 21, 2009      7 comments

I want to change my username, and I want you all to be a part of making up my mind! I'm changing it because, well, I don't really think @MYBEST really says anything about me. I want something more... me! Here are some ideas I have and the r... Read more
An early "rest day".
Tuesday, May 19, 2009      4 comments

Last night I only got 3 and a half hours of sleep, so today the last thing I wanted to do after work was go for a run. (Well, not the LAST thing, but I'm so so tired!) I'm going to bed early instead to catch up on my sleep. My rest day is S... Read more
A bittersweet week.

My measurements are pretty great (hips are finally going down in size! Yeah! However... I only went down 0.8 pounds. I'd normally be thrilled about this, but this is the first time that according to my weight-loss chart on the Results ... Read more
Cookin'.

Lately I've been cooking up a storm in my kitchen! Sunday night I made Cola Cake out of 1 box of reduced sugar Pillsbury devil's food cake mix and 12 oz of Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper. It tastes like chocolate covered cherry DELICIOUSNESS! I baked tw... Read more
Ch-ch-ch-changes!
Friday, May 08, 2009      2 comments

I was completely confused, befuddled, and confuzzled yesterday regarding a change I made. I've always had my Calorie-burning set to 2700/week, 6 days/week, for 30 minutes/day. I always had a hard time making it to 450 Calories, nonetheless in 30... Read more
Saying goodbye to the "before" picture.
Thursday, May 07, 2009      4 comments

I surprisingly feel good. I threw in "surprisingly" becuase, well, the scale hasn't really budged in the past week and a half. I should be frustrated (and, well, part of me is) but I really feel like I'm doing myself some good. My clothes are st... Read more
Back to being an omnivore, Sweatsuit to Swimsuit, and other things in my life.
Tuesday, May 05, 2009      5 comments

I'm loving eating meat again. Haha. It's been an absolute cinch to get my protein for the day and stay within range. Another thing that's a lot easier since ending the vegetarianism is my fiber. So easy! My fat intake is fine, too. Really, the o... Read more
My SP Convention experience...!
Monday, May 04, 2009      11 comments

This weekend was the Spark People Convention. Here's how it went down: I left work and when I got home at around 3pm I realized I did NOT have as much time to simply "throw my stuff together" as I had originally assumed. Oops! So, I gathere... Read more
An overview of my vegetarian month.
Friday, May 01, 2009      3 comments

So, as you all should know by now, I ate a vegetarian diet for the month of April. I actually started on March 29, so in reality it was a full 5 weeks. With the exception of one day where I forgot (haha) I had a flawless month of this personal c... Read more
Veggie day 33 - The last day.
Thursday, April 30, 2009      3 comments

You would think that today being the last day of April (thus the last day of my vegetarian diet challenge) that I'd be a good girl. Nope. I had half of a chocolate chunk cookie at work that was just SCREAMING my name. I felt guilty whi... Read more
Veggie Day 30 - Back on track.
Monday, April 27, 2009      2 comments

This is my last week of strict vegetarianism. Oh, what a month! But I'll save an overview of April at the end of the week. I went to the farmer's market Sunday, as usual, and got some more sweet potatoes, asparagus, spinach, honey, mandarin... Read more

This messy weekend.

Good news: I stuck to the vegetarian thing. Bad news: I ate a lot of sh!t. I don't think I went over 2000 Calories either day, but still. Not very good. Heh. This week is a brand new week though, and I honestly could have done a LOT ... Read more
