Weighty matters

Weighty matters

Somebody made a comment on a pregnancy/motherhood message board that I read today that really resonated with me: I don’t so much trust my body, though. It’s hard to be fat and pregnant and not feel that the other shoe is bound to drop at […]

Detox: Day 3

Detox: Day 3

I might as well update with the end of my detox, since I’ve finished it! Here’s what I ate: Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, hash brown patty, coffee with almond milk, 1/2 banana (other half fell on the floor, sad face) Lunch: NOTHING, too busy working, grar […]

Detox: Day 2

Detox: Day 2

Day 2 went a little something like this: Breakfast: EGGS! And coffee with almond milk. Lunch: Salad from home, as seen above, with romaine and spinach, salt, pepper, sunflower seeds, and craisins. This was actually a delicious combination, and I treated the craisins as I […]

Cleanse Me

Cleanse Me

So, I’m thinking of doing a cleanse. I know. I KNOW. I know what you’re going to say, just hear me out. Basically, I need a mile-marker. I’ve stop-started this whole “change my eating habits” thing so many times, the lines between healthy eating and […]

32 Before Thirty-Two

32 Before Thirty-Two

So far in my life, I’ve made two attempts at broad “life lists”: the 101 things in 1001 days list, and the 30 Before 30 list that I put here. Both had pretty sad, pathetic results. So I should obviously try again, RIGHT? Right. I’m […]

Revampify Me

Revampify Me

(wait, can I be revamped if I was never a vamp in the first place?) So, I think that I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m tired of being a schlub. When I was a kid and my mother was in control of my wardrobe, […]

Tandem ride

Tandem ride

We went on a 2-hour bike ride yesterday, with our vintage Schwinn tandem bike. My, what a difference some endurance and increased strength makes! We got the bike a few months ago, and had only really taken it for a swing around the neighborhood once, […]

Running?

Running?

I went to the gym last night at 10pm, spent 30 minutes on a recumbent stationary bike and rode about 5.3 miles, and then jumped on a treadmill and walked @3.0mph for 20 minutes, with five intermittent intervals of jogging @4.5mph. This was my second […]
