Still Alive!

Wow, it's been quite awhile since a post! For anyone reading, I promise I'm not falling off into the blogger abyss! I spent two weeks at my parents house in Indianapolis over the holidays, and they actually don't have Internet access. They're periodically able to steal neighbors' unlocked wireless networks, but let's just say it's spotty at best.

Since returning to Boston, I've been hit with the double whammy of 12-hour work days and lots of rehearsals and performances with my choir. But I have some good posts ideas brewing and will make it a priority to get a good one up tomorrow.

Other updates:
  • Jeff and I are spending the weekend in NYC! We've never been there together, so I'm really excited.
  • I started going to Weight Watchers again on Wednesday, and I'm really excited about it. I've made a promise to myself that I have to go to a meeting every week, regardless of whether or not I think I've lost weight. In the past, I've followed this very distinct pattern: I'll cheat for a bit, not lose very much, skip a meeting telling myself "I'll work hard and go next week," and then voila, it's five months later and I'm five pounds heavier. Not this time!
  • I've been pretty on track with my workouts (thank you 30-day Shred), and I've tried some really cool new healthy recipes. More to come!
That's it for now. I'm still at work and will probably be here until 8. Bleh. January is a very busy month for PR practitioners, as it happens! :)


  1. I second going every week. It keeps you in the now about the weight loss journey. When you skip a meeting, or whatever your measurement of your progress is, you subtly tell yourself it isn't as important as fill-in-the-blank. Cue to weight gain.

    Good luck with the work!! I don't envy you at all...

  2. Totally. I ate a LOT in NYC this weekend, but I forced myself to get my butt in gear and workout. I knew that weigh in was coming. I absolutely know I never would have worked out last night if the weigh in hadn't been looming!

  3. Did you have fun at least?? I've only ever driven through NYC, on my way to look at colleges in MA. All I remember is that I had to crane my head all the way back to look at those buildings.
