Writing Healthy

Holly is a professional writer who claims, tongue-in-cheek, to channel the spirits of Edgar Allan Poe, Erma Bombeck, and O. Henry.

Holly also hates to exercise and is quite fond of procrastination... but all that is about to change!

Hey, everyone! I took a little break (met my goal, got complacent, overindulged, regained it all and then some) and I'm baaaaaack!

It's not all bad. I quit smoking five years ago (12/08/06).

Hey, everyone! I took a little break (met my goal, got complacent, overindulged, regained it all and then some) and I'm baaaaaack!

It's not all bad. I quit smoking five years ago (12/08/06).

My first children's picture book, Trockle, was published by 4RV Publishing in April 2008. My second children's book, A Puppy, Not a Guppy, was published in 2009.

My son and I went camping with some terrific friends at Lassen Volcanic National Park in 2008, where we hiked and ate and prayed the bears wouldn't get us. We need to get out more - and I do mean OUT. That was a fun, active, healthy trip.

I have a supportive, loving family; a steady job I enjoy; good friends; and overall good health - although I was diagnosed in 2010 with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), or early-stage breast cancer.

I could make all the excuses in the world for why I'm lugging around an extra 80 lbs. of flab, including this "spare tire" where my once-skinny waist used to be, but the best one I can think of at the moment is: "I grew my own replacement boobs on my abdomen!" (I'm scheduled for DIEP flap surgery on 1/25.) Not sure why I felt compelled to grow a matching pair on my behind, but I'll need to get back with the SparkPeople program now and work on getting rid of them.

UPDATE: Did you know that boobs weight about 5 lbs., total? Moving the ab flab up a foot doesn't actually reduce anything. And hospital food isn't all that bad. That's my happy way of saying I didn't really lose an OUNCE, despite a 12-hour surgery in January. So now that I'm cleared to exercise and all... :) Time to get serious and stop joking about it.

Can't think of a better place to do it than SparkPeople.com! :)

UPDATE: That was back in 2011/2012. Well, gee - isn't every day just Groundhog's Day around here? :)
