To the lady who told me I'm getting too small
Did you know that I’m 3 lbs away from my goal weight? That I don’t plan on getting smaller? But if I do build muscle and burn fat, I’ll probably get smaller while still weighing the same. Did you know that my BMI is 21.4? That it is smack dab in the middle of the healthy weight range? Did you know it’s been a year since I started this weightloss journey? This didn’t...
My weekend was THE BEST weekend I have had in such a long time. My laundry didn’t get done and our bedroom isn’t clean, but I feel refreshed and recharged. Hubs and I went to see The Descendants on Friday. Pretty good movie. I definitely recommend it for at home viewing. I like movies that make you consider your life and how you live it. Up early on Saturday to grocery shop. I LOVE...
Thanks for the good juju guys ;)
I second that! Thanks! Great run this morning, Emily! Yay knee!
Not Over Night: DC Meetup: Run in the Zoo →
notovernight: First, thank you Jess for getting this all together. Emily always a pleasure! Erica (sp) nice to meet you. So this morning Jess, Emily, Erica and I all met up in DC for the unofficial/official DC Meetup thanks Ben. And, what a beautiful day it was. Not hot like it was training in the… Thanks for such a great recap, Avi! If you aren’t following notovernight,...
It’s a beautiful day, too!!
Jess and I are meeting at Columbia Heights Metro
emilydoesscience: tomorrow at 9:40am, then running to the zoo. It’ll add about 1.7miles. Message me for a phone number if you want to join us!! :) Otherwise, see you at the zoo at 10! WORD!
I missed my anniversary!
My first post was on Jan. 25, 2011. I just looked back because I thought it might be getting close. Bummer! I will not miss my one year progress pictures though. Next Sunday. Feb 5. Wait for it. Also of mention: I do not want to like any posts because my most recent likes are mock-Annas. Look at my actual page!!:
The one in College Park 10-3. It’s on my “if I have time, but really I don’t have money for that” list. You know.
I went ahead and ran my 8 miles scheduled for today last night at Pacers. This means today is a REST DAY and my EPIC WEEKEND is about to begin. Movies tonight with Hubs. It has been a WHILE since we’ve had a date. What should we go see? Suggestions? Then tomorrow DC MEET UP AT THE ZOO!! REI ATTIC SALE? TWO GENTS: A Rock Opera and Sunday HALF MARATHON! Can I handle this much awesome?...
Who's up for a good Thursday?!?!
theysayanythingispossible: How I know today is going to be good? I woke up. I’m healthy. I’m fit. I worked out. I have a job. I have great friends. I have an incredible family. I have a super supportive tumblr community. I have a roof over my head. I have nutritious food in my tummy. Why wouldn’t it be a good day? Thanks for this pick me up. All these things are totally true, but I...
Quite literally - I did not get on the scale as soon as I woke up. Let me try this once a week thing and see where it gets me.
5 for the day
And I’m really wondering why my brain almost always tells me not to go on my run. Like every single time. wth? I want to read something about this. Anyway, some stats for you: 5.09 miles 45:19 8:55/mile average pace Now to write next week’s math plans. Bleh.
notovernight asked: Who all is coming this weekend? Just thinking depending who is participating we maybe able knock out more than 3 miles. My other alternative is metro to DuPont and run, but that is some serious hill training.
The "Hi! I'm still here" WIW
1.4.11 - 132.8 1.11.12 - 133.2 1.18.12 - 132.4 1.25.12 - 133.0 Welp. That’s how it goes! I’ve been feeling indifferent about losing weight lately. Also, I need to post about the miles I did run lately. Seems I like to focus on the bad.
Re: DC Zoo Meetup
Here’s the deal: HOWEVER there will be shuttle buses and you can always drive. (Or you can be like easybeinggreene and run from a different metro stop. I’m running from Columbia Heights which is 1.7 miles from the zoo.) Hope you can still make it!!!!!!
DC Tumblr Meet Up: National Zoo
Still interested? Written in pen on your calendar? 10 AM, Jan. 28, 2012 @the front gate of the National Zoo Who’s planning on going?
This has not been my weekend.
I had 12 on the schedule for yesterday and cross training today. I only got in 3 yesterday before wimping out and did a workout video afterwards. Today… I’ve been grading. I assume since I’ve been putting running first for the last 2 months, this was inevitable. I’ll try to get my 12 in tomorrow, but if I don’t, oh well. Also of mention- bad experience with...
Short Mom: Push-ups for Pennies!! →
shortmom: For every push-up you do this Saturday and Sunday, I will donate $0.01 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. IF you do your push-ups in costume and on video, you will earn $0.02 per push-up! IF you do your push-ups in costume while lip syncing on video, you will earn $0.03 per push-up! … Let’s rock this!
So, I’ve been curious of my cravings lately. I’m not pregnant. But I’m probably PMSing. Usually I’m a lot crankier, so it went unnoticed. I like to make sure that what is happening to me is “normal” because don’t we all want to be normal? Anyway, I stumbled upon this article. So my body is working with me and understands these crazy things that...
Do not put off your run until 8:30 at night. And do not stuff your face up until 8:30. Running 8 miles with a stomach full of crappy food is one of the worst feelings ever. If I was the kind of person who vomits after running, I would have - thankfully I’m not. (Or maybe throwing up would have made me feel better?) (Hubs is a vomitter. He claims the relief he feels afterwards is one of the...
1. Don’t eat the cookies 2. Sort the bag of papers 3. Run 8 miles
1.4.11 - 132.8 1.11.12 - 133.2 1.18.12 - 132.4 Sweet! Happy Wednesday!
What do I want to do with my life?
or get a Masters in. I’m so confused right now, tumblr. Do I want the Gifted Education/Technology degree from Johns Hopkins or the Early Childhood Education degree from Towson. VERY DIFFERENT THINGS. (That lead to very different life dreams.) Two roads diverge into a wood, and I took the one less traveled by. BUT WHICH ONE IS THAT?
Next time, pick don’t pick Daria. You always pick Daria.– Samuel (to Amanda during 7-up) Students names have been changed. They are so funny!
Saved by my students!
I love lunch! I love it so much that I always eat it during my planning time instead of my lunch time. My lunch is just so delicious! Anyway, I’ve been fighting the cookie temptation because there’s a stash of cookies in my cabinet leftover from a holiday party in December. Everyday, or at least it seems like everyday, I want to add to my delicious and nutritious lunch. I want to add...
Finished 4 miles
And I’m wet (and now cold!) from sweat. Bbbbbrrrrrrrrrrrr. Saw/heard a whole flock of geese land in the lake. They had a lot to say. Saw a tree on its side. Fallen? Dug up? Who knows. Putting on warm clothes, drinking some new green tea, and getting ready for tomorrow. In other news - bought my first pair of skinny jeans tonight: Guess where they are the tightest? My calves. ...
I wanted to write something to embody my running experience from yesterday. 20 miles is quite a milestone. Sitting here now, it’s hard for me to believe that I did it. Have you ever had that experience? The night before, I believe I fueled well - Lots of rice, lentil chips, lots of popcorn. (We had friends over) The morning of I had a big bowl of oatmeal, a banana, and some coffee. This...
Free IKEA breakfast!
Here we come!!
Ugh. Swollen day
I really dislike waking up and looking bigger, rounder, puffed up. Operation Drink More Water commences now.
Hi friends! So far this morning I’ve: Gone grocery shopping Been to the gym (cross training, check!) Started a load of laundry I feel awesome (and PRODUCTIVE!!) Here’s me on the bike at the gym: I don’t know how you frequent gym-goers do it. I felt like I had no purpose. I wonder if I would feel better if I went with a workout written down. 10 min walk/run warm up ...
shortmom: I cannot believe the amount of awesome on my dash today. Do you guys have any idea how much ass we kick, cumulatively?!! I felt this way too, today! This weekend will be owned by us. I’m glad I can be part of such an amazing community!
Things of mention
1. I’ve been procrastinating this 20 mile run for about an hour and a half 2. I waited until I went to te bathroom because I want to train my body that it isn’t okay to have to stop around mile 5 3. Yummmmm coffee 4 (and most importantly). Free ikea breakfast Monday morning at the ikea in college park! I’ll be there at 9:30 for free coffee if you’d like to join Hubs and...
Just went out for 8 cooold miles! and it was great! I decided to mix up route a bit. Nothing too exciting. And now I’m gearing up for 20 tomorrow! Woweee!
I will do my run even though it's freezing.
I will I will I will GAH!!!!
