No Processed Foods

So, I’m trying to figure out my diet.  My goal is whole food Vegan….but what does that mean? First – it probably means I shouldn’t have sushi every day. But, let’s be honest, I love it. Is it the best thing for me?  Maybe not, but there are (I’m sure) worse things that I’ve eaten … Continue reading

Plateaus and Frustrations

So, I guess I’m at what one would call a “plateau.”  I know where these plateaus come from – because I know that I’m not eating perfectly…so I’m (obviously) not going to lose weight. I guess where the frustration lies is that I’m eating pretty damn good. And I’m certainly exercising. And then this past … Continue reading


So – there is this program on the iPhone called GymPact (…I think it’s an awesome idea. You put some stakes in – say you’re going to workout 5 times a week for $10 each…and if you don’t do your workouts (check in at the gym) – you have to pay that $10 for each … Continue reading

Down 34 Pounds.

That may sound awesome. 34 pounds down!  But, the reality is that in November, two months ago, when I started this blog, I was already down 30 pounds!  That’s only 4 more pounds. That’s why “Down 34 Pounds.” had a period and not an exclaimation point.  Over 20 trainer workouts (That’s over $1000 spent!) and … Continue reading

Being Sick Sucks

I’ve spent the week in bed with a throat infection. It has sucked – but I rested and did the best I could with food (very few comfort foods!).  I cut out my workouts, and (quite frankly) slept all day. I missed Tuesday – Friday at school.  Saturday I felt better, but accidentally missed the … Continue reading

Wellness Coach?

So…I spend a lot of money on a Personal Trainer. I know many people don’t have that luxury.  Honestly, I may have to go into debt to continue that luxury. But right now, being healthy is the most important thing in the world to me. It’s what I’m willing to spend all (seriously – all) … Continue reading

A week later…

So, it’s been a week since my last post.  I did OK this week – ran (only on Friday – which was the plan MWF starting on Friday) and made it to the trainer days.  This week I planned to go on Wed and Friday and trainer Today, Thurs, and Saturday.  Until this morning.  I … Continue reading

Back to the Daily Grind…

Good thing I took my shower last night.  I’m just not in the mood to start moving and doing something.  I’m not in the mood to go to work. I’m not in the mood to admit that I accomplished nothing I was supposed to during my vacation. I did, however, work out a lot and … Continue reading

Movie Review – A Delicate Balance

One of the last movies of vacation.  This movie, while interesting, was very plain. A lot of information, given by a calm, european narrator…with a “we are killing ourselves and the world” theme.   I know, seems a little much.  Had it been the first one of these movies I saw, I probably would have … Continue reading
