Thankful for Running

if I were an organized blogger this would have been done on time for Thanksgiving and/or my birthday, but I am not. I’m somewhat hooked on The Morning Shakeout podcast and as I was grinding out Friday’s miles, I listened to the Bart Yasso interview from earlier in November. What an inspiration. Among the comments […]


TOTR: How Running Changed Me

How Running Changed Me: perhaps the biggest way it changed me is that I truly enjoy the gym. Linking up with: Erika at MCM Mama, Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and Patty at No Guilt Life. And if anyone in the linkup knows where to find the prompts ahead of time, I’d love the link. […]


January in steps, miles and pages

So there must be something about an end of month rush. Last year at the end of February I did a mad dash of exploring NYC and yesterday? More of the same.  I needed 14K for my stretch goal and came home with 16K January, you were amazing. 301,695 steps 124.2 miles walked 85.14 miles […]


Confessions of a Designated Fat Taxi Driver?

aka a two-in-one review because I started and finished two books in the last three days Confessions of a New York Taxi Driver by Eugene Salomon and Jennifer Joyner’s Designated Fat Girl. Two very different subjects but the right level of reading depth I was in the mood for this weekend. I started with Joyner’s […]


Invisalign is the new Weight Watchers?

Over the weekend I was kicking myself for missing my Weight Watchers anniversary, but then on the way home today I realized that I got my Invisalign very close to my WWversary. Now what on earth do braces have to do with WW (which I haven’t followed since Dec ’10 anyway)? I’m down 4 lbs […]


2013: Pretty Well Done

Perfect? No Well done? Absolutely That graph is from when I restarted through today. Was the year perfect? Nope. But I ended 2013 17.3 lbs less than where I started it. That’s good. I was very good with mini goals and quarterly goals this year. Time to look back at 2013 and set some new […]


Chubster: where reading and weight loss intersect

Part of the reason for the increased number of book reviews here is simple, an increase in reading. It’s partially the iPad, partially more down time, but whatever it is, I’ll take it. It has led to this blog being a bit disjointed but, to be honest, it always has been at heart. Anyway, Chubster, […]


Weigh In: April 7 and Accountability Redux

Loss Since March 10: 1.6 lbs Total Loss: 16.8 lbs I could look at that and be disappointed, but I’ve instead chosen to focus on the last two weeks where I got back on track. I was so good through March 10 but then some things popped up and I wasn’t. I still tracked every […]

DietBet: WI 2

WIs for Diet Bet 2 and 3 also known as “I don’t see it in the mirror daily but I definitely see it in the photo.” This also has to be the first time where the first place the weight (or lack thereof) has shown in my face before anywhere else. I haven’t officially won […]
