I’m ending the year in a big exciting way… I’m gonna be on a talk show!

This post will be a combination of many things. There’s good news. Yay! There’s bad news. Boo! There’s more bad news. Double Boo! And there’s a lot to catch up on. Let’s not waste any time!
First and foremost, I’m back to exercising…. for now. (Cue foreboding music. That ‘for now’ will be explained later.) Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve been forced to take a unplanned hiatus from exercise this week, thanks to an annoying and painful injury. I think I have a bruised rib. It’s the worst.
Ironically enough, I injured myself while exercising. (Perhaps that isn’t actually irony, but it is when you use the Alanis Morissette definition.) I was out for a run on Sunday afternoon when Read the rest of this entry »

Hey, remember my Cardio to Vegas challenge? In June, I challenged myself to do enough cardio to take me the 274 miles from my home in Los Angeles to Las Vegas, Nevada. It was a virtual journey: I logged all the miles I completed running, biking, and on the elliptical, and plotted my progress on a map. It was an awesome and effective challenge – read more about it on my Cardio to Vegas page.
Even though I reached my goal in September, I’ve still been logging the miles I complete during my cardio. They say that old habits die hard, and this is proof! For the first time since reaching my goal, I’ve plotted my progress on a map. Wanna see where I am now?

As of December 1st, I’ve logged a total of Read the rest of this entry »

Sometimes I don’t look forward to weigh-ins when they happen right after a trip, but that wasn’t the case this weekend. I got home on Saturday evening from 4 days in Colorado, but had a hunch that my weigh-in on Sunday morning would go well. And it did! Check it out!
