First series of screw-ups.
Friday, March 06, 2020      3 comments

First, it's really hard not to swear on here! I curse like a sailor but I'm trying to refrain from such speech on here. I typed something other than "screw" on my title at first! Whoops! Anyway... I'ave had a rough couple of days, most... Read more
Formerly Kalorie-Killah, and My First SP Weigh-In
Monday, March 02, 2020      5 comments

My username was Kalorie-Killah from the beginning, but I decided after more than a decade of SP to make a change - now I am "TheNextJess". Minor, seemingly purpose-less change, but I want this to be more of me *now* than me *then*. So, I ha... Read more
Blast from the past.
Friday, February 28, 2020      4 comments

I thought about making a brand new profile. I was scared that by re-starting my journey on my original, 12-year-old SparkPeople profile would "taint" my past successes. I went from a 172-pound 20-something to a fit, active, happy 134-pound 20-so... Read more
Why I'm not caring [about food] anymore.
Saturday, May 12, 2012      2 comments

For most of my time on SP, I've been trying to figure out exactly what the best way to eat is. I've tried vegetarianism, veganism, low-carb, smoothies, all-natural... but I'm sick of it, and I've decided not to care anymore. I've always tol... Read more
The Perks of Being a Tour Guide
Sunday, April 15, 2012      1 comments

Holy moly, let me tell you... when I signed up to be a tour guide in the city of Cincinnati, I knew I'd be walking a lot; however, I wasn't active on SP when I first started back in late summer 2011, so I had no idea how many Calories I was burn... Read more
Truthful Tuesday
Tuesday, April 10, 2012      2 comments

I used to choose Wednesdays as my weigh-in day. (Hey, I like the alliteration of "weigh-in Wednesday"!) Well, I'm weighing in on Tuesdays now... just because... ...just because I weighed in today and got a dose of reality: 143 pounds ... Read more
Passin' Through
Monday, April 09, 2012      1 comments

It's Passover... and although this holiday has always been my favorite due to the food, I always falsely think to myself, "I can't eat any wheat, yeasted foods, and must keep kosher... there's no way I can over-eat!" False!! ... Read more
13 Months

Forgive me, SparkPeople, for I have sinned. It has been nearly 13 months since my last SparkPeople log-in. But, I really think I'm back. Nearly four years ago to the day, I re-joined SP and kick-started what would be a 38-pound weight-... Read more
Apologies, and Goodbye
Wednesday, March 16, 2011      9 comments

I need to stop lying to you all, and to myself as well. I have a hard time admitting my own faults especially to myself, but also to others. I always want to seem like the strong one, the person who can face adversity, and the person who can ove... Read more
Carb Redux Re-Cap & My Upcoming 15K
Monday, March 14, 2011      2 comments

[DAYS 5 & 6] I'm going to combine Saturday and Sunday into one report. I stayed relatively low in carbs for the day and proudly reached my Calorie intake range. I was pretty satisfied both days, not feeling hungry or over-stuffed. I did hav... Read more
Carb Redux - Day 4 (cont'd) & Today's Run
Saturday, March 12, 2011      1 comments

So, after eating a yummy low-carb dinner of grilled curry chicken with a side-salad (lettuce and balsamic vinegar) I totally splurged at the party I went to. My cupcake cones were a hit (and nobody knew they were low-carb!) but eating two of the... Read more
Carb Redux - Days 3 & 4 (so far)
Friday, March 11, 2011      3 comments

[DAY THREE] Yesterday I had a Yelp event to go to at an Italian restaurant I've been meaning to try for a while. There were going to be light appetizers and free wine. I figured I'd eat whatever the lowest-carb item is, and have one glass o... Read more
Run Recap

So, due to laziness, forgetfulness, and technical difficulties I only just uploaded Saturday's run to Runkeeper as I was uploading last night's run before going to bed yesterday. Anyway, here's the run-down (pun? haha). Saturday, 5 March 20... Read more

As if I wasn't already feeling a little less-than-pleased with my appearance (see yesterday's blog post) the scale wasn't too friendly today, either. 137.8 I mean, it's .8 pounds less than last Wednesay's sodium-induced gain, but it's ... Read more
