So I've been having some not so fun times at work and at home. I don't know how detailed I want to be. It's in my nature to be an all or nothing kind of gal once I open my mouth. Pure word vomit. I may blog more about this at another time cause I literally need to get this off my chest. I've gotten to the point that anytime I become slightly stressed I break out in a rash. The wrist shot is from Sunday and the neck yesterday. At least I looked super cute last night...

    I'm sorry that's your body's way of telling you you're stressed :( Mine is weight gain (hey, cortisol, how you doing, GETLOST), tension headaches (kind of like migraines, but not), and ohh, breaking out on my face! COOL.

I feel you. Hugs!

    It looks like hives, but i'm no doctor...hopeit clears up girl! put some benedryl or take a nice oatmeal bath might help. I get a rash like that sometimes that & don't know why & thats what I do.

& hells yes to rocking it! keep up the great work & get back to reading girl, especially since that may be your zen moment! no more stress!

    Looks like you are definitely on track with your goals!

I know that stress takes a far bigger toll on us then we realize. I have never heard of a rash before, but I hope you find relief soon!

The wellness challenge at work hit a slump this week. We're at our halfway mark and the nurses are getting lax. It's not like they're doing bad, I just know they could do more. I'm a little competitive. I'm trying to not be overbearing, but some days I just want to yell, "move your asses!"

Keep up the good work!

I also decided to track my weight for the first time since the end of 2013. I've been checking it occasionally and after several weighings I decided I could trust the number. So that's an exciting scale victory of losing 8lbs.

Finished "Garden of Beasts" by Jeffery Deaver. Lots of intrigue, pretty good. It's about 400pgs long and probably really only needed 200. Starting Erik Larson's "In the Garden of Beasts" which is a nonfiction novel about an American ambassador and his family living in Berlin from 1933-1937. I'm interested to see how much of the details in the Deaver book are based on facts.: Read a Book Biweekly

We are FOUR WEEKS behind on The Walking Dead! I feel so out of the loop! However, we are all caught up on The Following. I love Kevin Bacon, but man is he looking like a skeleton! :Watch tons of Movies/TV Shows

Neon Lights Tour! Cher Lloyd opened for Demi Lovato. It was so much fun! Cher sang my favorite song of hers; swagger jagger, you've heard it being sung by a cow taking a shower in a California cheese commercial. I'm being serious. Demi was pretty impressive. I was happily surprised by her show. It was pretty straight forward, just a girl and her band rocking out on stage. We had a blast! Met 1:Take in LiveEvent of Some Kind

Little NSV: Got a flat tire on the way home. I have never actually changed a tire by myself. Got the flat off, donut on, flat in the trunk all by myself on the side of the interstate at 1am all under half an hour! #strongisthenewskinny I kinda hate that saying, but I felt crazy strong and a rush of feminism for taking care of myself. Also my dtr got to see how it's done.
