25 days to go - Thanksgiving mini challenge to myself
Sunday, November 02, 2014      2 comments

Frustration. I made my Thanksgiving travel plans this morning, and it's going to be super expensive. I really need to find a way to skip going back for Christmas, both for emotional and financial health. Times like this, I miss having a c... Read more

I woke up this morning super early and one of my first thoughts was - I have a $4 coupon for CVS I need to use before Monday, and I could probably find discount Halloween candy if I get there early. And then I realized I haven't had one single ... Read more

My boss came back from vacation today. Enough on that topic. I didn't track my food today. I may fill it in tomorrow, but it was basically a refined carb day. Oh well. I had 8 cups of spinach at dinner last night. Might have been a... Read more

Day 4 of waking up without a fuzzy head. I am having a terrible time falling and staying asleep at night though, so much so that I’m thinking of getting some of that Z-Quill stuff. A friend gave me a bottle of valerian, which I’ve read can ups... Read more

I woke up this morning feeling fantastic. No fuzzy head from drinking, no bloated feeling from eating crap. Phew. Also, I had micro-dermabrasion last night for the first time ever and wow, was it fantastic. I felt so light on my way home. ... Read more

I told myself I would not get on the scale this week until our weigh in on Thursday, but I was feeling particularly heavy this morning and I couldn’t wait. I am up 5 lbs since Saturday. Ugh. I know this is water retention but seriously. ... Read more

Last night, I had way too much wine, so I'm kind of hungover today (lasted til 3:30 pm). I normally don't get hungover so this was unexpected. I had already planned to clean things up starting today, but got a couple of reminders from the unive... Read more

So the race started at 10 and right up until about 9:15 the defeatist in me was thinking of all the reasons why I should stay home - I don't want to be doing it alone when everyone else is there with friends, I'm going to come in last and I'll b... Read more
First 5K and pre-Thanksgiving planning

Dandelion root tea; I’m loving this stuff lately. I started drinking it for liver support but the only thing I’m noticing is that my mood is hugely improved. Maybe that is a side effect of not having a toxic liver anymore. Tomorrow is my ... Read more
Week 1 Day 1
Saturday, October 04, 2014      2 comments

I had a fairly rotten week, mostly due to work. My office is toxic. Enough said there. It's Saturday night and I just completed C25K week 1 day 1! It wasn't that bad, but the truth will be in whether I do week 1 day 2. That's where I've... Read more
Running (away if I could)

Well, I did it. I just signed up for the 2014 HoBOOken 5K! The race is in 31 days, so I have a lot of prep work to do in advance. Nothing else is going right this week, so I NEED to focus on training for this.... Read more
Hello there Fall!

Where did my summer go? It’s hard to believe I haven’t posted anything since June, but I suppose that’s because things didn’t exactly go my way all summer long and I didn’t want to memorialize much of it while I was still stewing in disappointm... Read more
Day nothing

I am super excited to be part of the BLC emerald team this summer. But, like many others, I question my ability to stick with it. I've been following a mostly paleo diet for about 3 weeks or so. I've noticed a few things, both positive an... Read more
Funny how time moves on when you stop obsessing
Thursday, May 29, 2014      2 comments

I don't have much swirling in my head today but I did want to make a point of noting that I'm now 5 days into what I'm hoping will become a lifestyle change for me. Wine (or any alcohol) consumption - zero Chocolate/candy consumed - ze... Read more
I want that joy
Tuesday, May 27, 2014      3 comments

Each morning as I walk to work, I pass a mom and her two small daughters walking to school, with the smaller one being in a stroller. I first noticed them because they are sidewalk hogs, but at some point over the winter, I started glancing at ... Read more
