Don't blink. Whatever you do, don't blink.

Allons-y!

Clearly, I'm a Dr. Who fan; however, I think the words at the top of my page are a fitting tribute to my battle with food. Not weight. Food. Weight doesn't make me fat, food does. Thus, the Weeping Angels are a metaphor for food in my life (and really, for those in the Whoverse, is there anything truly scarier?). I have to stay vigilant and not blink or I'm a goner.

I believe vigilance is the key to this journey and complacency is the lock. (Wow, I'm ...

I believe vigilance is the key to this journey and complacency is the lock. (Wow, I'm just full of metaphors.) I never struggled with weight growing up. In fact, I was downright scrawny. It wasn't until my late 20's that I started having problems. Since then, I've been within 15 pounds of goal (numerous times, *sigh*), and start getting complacent. I'm sure in psychobabble this would be called "self-sabotage."

With all of this knowledge at my fingertips and years of analyzing my eating habits, triggers, etc., you'd think I'd have this thing down pat. Alas, not so much. So, here I am making my way in this world today, taking everything I've got (any Cheers fans out there?).

I need to refocus on me. Actually, I need to find a new motivation--clearly what worked a year and a half ago, isn't working now.

My Goals:
I'd love to get healthy without relying on willpower alone. It's so exhausting to stay focused (no blinking!). If someone knows the answer, please share. lol

I want...
...to improve my 5K pace.

...to workout AT LEAST 30 minutes 4 times a week. Obviously, more is great, but I want my minimum to be attainable.

...my inner thighs to be enemies and never touch again.

...my belly button to be shallow and not the abyss.

...my skin and hair to glow with health.





Other Information:
I'm a total geek and love Dr. Who, Firefly, The Big Bang Theory, Harry Potter, Fringe, Highlander (TV Series), and lots more.

I love to read a variety of genres--even getting into some non-fiction.

Thanks for the blog comment! I will consider my hair up. You mentioned it would lengthen and slenderize my neck. That is my biggest insecurity other than my stomach. I usually wear my hair down to hide it. but I'll try out a few updos maybe. I was considering maybe a low to the side do or something if it's windy.

LOL..I doubt I will ever have triceps. I'll just keep throwing the kettle-bell around and hopefully all the flab on my arms will just fall off someday..haha. If not..I will just be happy with my one minute of glory..right after each workout :P

Thanks for the blog comment! I decided to wait until Saturday and my mother is going. I've all ready picked out/ordered the dress. This is just finally picking it up and seeing how it fits. So I'm good without needing fashion advice.

Here's a photo of it! http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/58/

Thanks for the blog comment

Hey at least you had days when you could curve your leg, tip your head back, and touch your toes to your head! I've never even come close!

Check out foam rolling and trigger points (2 different searches) on the web

These guys sell some good stuff and have good info on their site

I completely agree with you on the casual chic Jennifer Aniston look. I love it but when I wear what she does, I just look sloppy. I'm with you on not wearing accessories either. My accessory is a hair tie on my wrist always because I usually put my hair up and down throughout the day. Other than that, it's rare that I wear jewelry or anything like that. I'm strictly a jeans and tshirt girl.

You know, I do really like this girl. She's marrying my cousin and has always been super nice to be and tried to include me in things. So I think no matter how uncomfortable I may be, I want to make the effort. If her friends and family are as sweet as her, hopefully I won't feel too awkward.

I did buy a really comfortable and sort of flattering one piece swimsuit last year so I think I just need to push the negative thoughts away and suck it up and just wear it. I do like the idea of some shorts to go with it though as I have scars on my thigh that I would like to cover.

Thanks so much for such a long comment on my blog! You gave some great ideas and we also seem to be very similar when it comes to fashion (or the lack of fashion).
