Turkey & Bacon

I’m not even going to try and hide it. I went to Panera last night, and ordered a Panini…it had not only turkey on it, but bacon. But you know what? I didn’t even enjoy it. It honestly didn’t even taste good and I didn’t finish it. Within 20 minutes of eating it, I felt … Continue reading

Out of Shape.

Yikes! I mentioned the other day that I was excited to get back into the weight room. I started following Jamie Eason’s Live Fit Trainer (sort of…but more on that later) which I thought was going to be a breeze- mostly because phase 1 is meant to “build muscular endurance.” Build muscular endurance? Ha! Or … Continue reading


Sometimes life overwhelms you and lose track of your goals, you know? It happens. But I’m trying to re-focus and get everything back on track. Before you know it, you’ve finished a bottle of wine and an entire bag of popcorn, it’s almost midnight, and not only are you exhausted, but you feel like shit. … Continue reading


Here were my goals for September: Workout before class at least once a week: check! Stick to the schedule: check! (except for when I got sick.) Yoga/Stretch: still working on it. Don’t Stress: Check! (for the most part.) Prioritize: Check! Food: getting better. Take More Pictures: working on it. Scrapbook: working on it. It’s hard … Continue reading

Hyperventilatory Breast Strokes.

(swimming. get your mind out of the gutter ;)) I love fall! I wish Chicago looked remotely this beautiful in fall, but it doesn’t =( October is definitely one of my favorite months. I literally feel like I just wrote my goals for September! And since October is this weekend (what?!) that means it’s time … Continue reading


I am feeling 100x’s better than yesterday and the day before!! I’m not 100% back to health, but compared to how awful I was feeling, I feel SO much better. My first instinct was to run today, but I knew that would just be bad news. 1) I’m NOT all better so I feel like … Continue reading

My White Blood Cells= slackers.

Last night’s attempt at getting any sleep failed miserably, but I think I reached my quota for talking about snot in last night’s post, so I’ll spare you the details. During my shower this morning, it hit me. Holy shit! The triathlon is less than two weeks away! And I’m sick. I’m not sure about … Continue reading

Biggest Loser.

I hope everyone else’s night has been filled with far less mucous than mine!! (TMI?) I am in continued amazement with how much mucous my body (read: nose) decides to produce when I get sick. This morning? Mucous and phlegm free! Now? It’s pretty much pouring out of me and I’ve already gone through an … Continue reading

Day 1.

Hello everyone! Happy-Monday! (since it’s 9:40pm and Monday is almost over which means one day closer to the weekend!) Mondays aren’t actually that bad for me since I only have two classes and am done by noon. Somehow my easy afternoons always end up full and before I know it, it’s almost 10pm and time … Continue reading

The Las Vegas Diet, Part II

(In case you missed it, part I is here) The number on the scale is misleading, frustrating, and at the end of the day- it’s stupid. One day I’ll be 5 pounds more than what I thought, and the next day I’ve lost that 5 pounds and then 2 more! This is a dangerous, vicious … Continue reading
