Sunday was the Mini Mega Adoption Event for the Animal Adoption Center (the animal shelter where I volunteer). I arrived at the shelter at 9:30 AM where I got lucky enough to "claim" little 5-month-old Blondie. Here she is napping on a blanket w... Read more
The Bad, the Good and the Awesome
(This blog is brought to you by the entire Offspring album Smash because it's effing awesome. Period.)
I've been super tired this week. I haven't wanted to go to work, and when I'm at work, I want to go home. No reason other than the air co... Read more
With Father's Day having been Sunday The Hubs and I were a little worried the two of us would be a bit gloomy (we have both lost our dads in the last 5 years) so we decided we'd go to a minor league baseball game on Father's Day to get us out of... Read more
(Ahhhh! This blog is brought to you by a song today! Can you believe it? It's been ages! Okay, so it's Maroon 5's "This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like A Motherf*****" because I can't stop listening to it and I'm not ashamed of that! Anything that make... Read more
I'm going to go back to doing affirmations if I can, but my breakthrough yesterday has really helped me realize a bunch of stuff about myself. I think it's less that I don't love myself (I do, actually) and more that I don't trust my own decisio... Read more
There hasn't been a ton to say in the food or fitness department these days. I haven't been perfect, but I haven't been bad either. But I know you won't mind when I tell you that this blog is about emotions and self-worth, because you really see... Read more
Haha, I Love The Universe
From my "A Note From the Universe" e-mail subscription:
If I were a business professor and you were my student, Andrea, today's lesson might sound like this:
In the "real" world, it's better to have loved and lost, tried and fail... Read more
Guess Who Has Two Thumbs and a Case of the Rambles?
Quick recap since my last blog. I've been doing well with keeping my anxiety journal. I'm tracking anxiety levels on a 10 scale, my exercise, the weather, and the barometric pressure in hopes of seeing a pattern. I've only been t... Read more
Being My Own Anchor
Lots of stuff going on in my world this week. Nothing terrible.
We got a letter informing us that our apartment complex wants to raise the rent AGAIN, another 4.5%, which would be the equivalent of about $150 a month. For the third year in... Read more
Remember back when my coworker Josh's wife (who is also named Andrea) made a pound cake and brought it over for St. Patty's Day? Remember that work was closed the next day so I stayed home and ate four pieces of cake? And remember (I don't thin... Read more
It's Only Stormy on the Outside
Today has been a good day. I set the alarm for 6 am, made coffee and goofed off until 6:30 when I ate a banana and got changed for my run. I did a good job planning the run so I didn't have to spend too much time during the 8 minute run segments... Read more
A Pretty Good Day
The Hubs has snagged a job in a different department at work, and his schedule has changed again, putting him back on the same days off as me! Since I JUST LAST MONTH got used to not having him around on my weekend, it's been an adjustment, and ... Read more
New Blog on AML
Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my body image blog "Untitled Blog"!
I am so appreciative that it was received so well. I've written a blog about positive body image over on A Measured Life.

Did I Pinpoint It?
I thought I'd been getting better emotionally. Last week was pretty good. The week before was pretty good, too. This week? EPIC CRASH. Sobbing during yoga in the morning (mornings are my worst times for my anxiety) and rainy/overcast/cool days d... Read more
Night and Day (IT'S MAH BIRFDAY)
This day started out poorly. As many of you know, my emotions are incredibly affected by the weather. It's super annoying. This morning I woke up, not sad, but with tension. Like I wanted to cry for NO REASON. It was foggy and humid and generall... Read more
