Robyn last night was so so so awesome. I did my long run (10.5 miles!) a few hours before the concert, and I still had the energy to jump around for 3 hours at the most amazing concert I have ever been to ever ever ever. I bought this shirt after the concert. It’s from […]
1. Yesterday, I went to the gym and someone new was working the front desk. When you go in, they check your membership number with a picture that they took of you when you signed up for your membership. The new girl didn’t quite recognize me from my picture, but the other staffer that was […]
11 days until the race. I’ve ran on the treadmill every day since my long run on Saturday. This is my longest treadmill streak ever, and I’m getting really bored and tired of it — but there haven’t been many reasonable, above-0 days since then. And I do have a threshold. The weather is looking […]
Boston Marathon You know what? I will run in the Boston Marathon one day. I will need to improve my pace by over 3 minutes to qualify, but — no matter how long it takes me, I want to do it.

To review: 1. Eat vegetables. Make it easier by keeping canned and frozen ones around. 2. Be prepared. Bad choices happen when you don’t have easy healthy options. 3. No liquid calories. 4. Look for foods that are high in fiber. Part 3 … 5. The slow cooker is your friend. This is kinda related […]
Continued from Sunday, I’m writing a series of tips for establishing better eating patterns. I started writing this series for the blog because I’ve hit the 20-pounds-lost mark and I feel like I’ve learned a lot worth sharing along the way. 3. No liquid calories. This one is tough, and it’s easy at the same […]
The other day when I was standing in line at Save-a-Lot (my favorite grocery store), I looked back over my groceries on the checkout counter and they were mostly produce and entirely whole foods. This might sound pretty corny, but I was so proud of myself. I’ve been paying special care to eating more whole […]
