That butt won't get any smaller by sitting on it...

I'm 31 years old. I've been chunky for a good deal of my adolescent and adult life. I don't want to be chunky anymore. I am an emotional over-eater, binge eater, and a foodie, which makes for a BAD combination. I do not want to be skinny; I want to be fit. I want to be healthy. I want to fit into clothes.

I like fitness, I just hate not being motivated. I enjoy step aerobics, yoga, pilates, swimming aerobics, ballet, tap dance, hiking. I'd love to learn boxing, kayaking ...

I like fitness, I just hate not being motivated. I enjoy step aerobics, yoga, pilates, swimming aerobics, ballet, tap dance, hiking. I'd love to learn boxing, kayaking (which I've done twice and crave more!), surfing, indoor rock climbing (which I tried recently! Woo!), and breaking dishes. I'm always looking for inspiration and motivation!

On June 13th, 2010, I graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a BA in Theatre; Minor in History (women's/gender studies focus.) Since achieving this milestone, my goals have changed. I want to enter a Master's Degree program in nutrition to become a Registered Dietitian.

Hi Jilly. Thanks for your comments on my blog about my brother. You are right, of course.I do excuse him and his behaviour all the time, but something inside me has snapped, and I can't do it any more.

I hope you are feeling well, and looking after yourself.

Debs x

*someday* the farm will be set up for guests. We've pondered doing retreats, teaching folks how to can, having little music festivals that include food, etc. I would LOVE for you to visit :)

1. I will help you and GHK1962 beat the crap out of that table! We re-watch Office Space *almost* as often as we re-watch Idiocracy.

2. I'm beginning to suspect that there are psychological factors at play for both of us...we KNOW. We also have time (because everyone has time for the things they deem important -- something else we both know). We know how to and what to cook and eat. Therefore, it has to be some psychological thing. For my part, I think that money and fear are playing into it really hard. I'm afraid of hurting my back and not having the money to get the care that will require. But the logical part of me knows that's not a good reason to keep on buying bigger pants.

Hahaha, got your comment on my page about that Office Space printer episode ... yeah I saw that one.

But wasn't there 3 of them? So before we beat the heck out of that damn table we'll get SmilingTree over here to join us.

Then yeah...table gonna get it.

(And if anyone asks why we are being so violent to the table we can just let them know the stoppid tabled started it.)


*kicks the table again*
