Well, my answer to this question this week is – 360 minutes of exercise in seven days, and 4 lbs lost. Not bad, eh? I weighed in at 168.2 lbs on Sunday, April 7. I had finished a busy week with travel (meeting in Toronto April 1 - 3) and th... Read more

This is the second time it's happened - I get overwhelmingly busy near the end of the year, and have an absolutely insane first quarter. My sleep suffers, my nutrition suffers, my exercise suffers, and my stress level skyrockets. I've got a plan... Read more

Over the last year, three things have caused me considerable stress: 1. Money 2. Weight gain 3. Work I don't know why it took until now to realize it, but these things are linked in a big way. Forgive me if this is obvious for yo... Read more

The last time I did this, I went from 182 lbs (when I finally stepped on a scale; I wouldn’t be surprised if it had been higher at some point) to 142 from March 2009 to June 2010. That time, I started out by keeping a food journal, getting to kn... Read more

161. That’s the number my scale gave me this morning. 161 lbs. I haven’t seen that number in over two years. In spring 2010, I reached 143 lbs. My original goal from spring 2009 was to reach 150 from a starting weight of 182. Since 2010, b... Read more

The last few weeks have had my head spinning. I’ve been exercising like mad...and eating about the same – I have an insane appetite right now! The man and I decided we are definitely going to Europe; in fact, we’re going to Italy for the full 8... Read more

Today, I completed the Couch to 5K running program. With a 5-minute warm up walk and a 30-minute run, I ran 3.2 miles (5.25 km) in 36:30. I have such a feeling of accomplishment – I’m a runner. I never identified myself as one but I can run 5 km... Read more

April was an incredibly busy month in terms of work travel and meetings, as well as personal commitments. Although I didn’t get in all of my planned workouts (and I’m not entering Week 9 of C25K yet as intended), I still managed to eke out ~100... Read more

I’ve got to admit it, as far as healthy eating goes I’ve been struggling for a while. When I started my new job in July, I’d just ended my relationship and was apartment-hunting while working 50+ hour weeks and packing for the move, and I just “... Read more

At the end of 2010, I had a feeling that 2011 was going to be a big year. Something big was coming, I told people. I could feel it. I wasn’t wrong. In the last year, I changed jobs (from receptionist to marketing specialist – a significant c... Read more
