Two days ago I had a "straw that broke the camel's back" moment regarding The Guy and our relationship. Last night I sat him down, told him about what I knew (not all of it, but it wasn't necessary), and that it's just not working out. I've done... Read more
I'm seeing a pattern here that I don't really like. I get worked up and ready to diet and exercise again, do well for a few days, then feel ill like I ate something that upset my stomach and I get off track. Then I work myself up again, get back... Read more
Ugh, did NOT want to do my workout today, but knew it would make me feel better. I just feel so BLEAH lately. Part of that is depression, I know. The rest? Maybe it's the weather. It's overcast, humid, and still warm. No longer 100-and-Firelands... Read more
Slept horribly last night. To make things worse, the people upstairs have a small child who was running the entire length of the apartment from 9 am-2pm. Seriously, FIVE HOURS of "thumpthumpThumpThumpTHUMP SLAM! thumpthumpThumpThumpTHUMP SLAM!" ... Read more
I don't know what to really say about Day 6 since it's a rest day. I need to work on my food issues, and haven't been drinking enough water recently either. I feel bloated. Some of that is from not eating right, most is from body retaining water... Read more
Since I took a day off on Wednesday, I'm technically a day behind (hence the Day 4 to relate to her calendar) but I'll be jumping to Day 6 tomorrow since my rest days will catch up and I'll be right back on track come Monday.
I'm still not ... Read more
Yesterday was supposed to be Day 3. I took the day off. I needed it. Anxiety sucks. =P I keep waking up from these dreams which I can only interpret as being the result of the upcoming changes. Like I had a dream in which my father had died some... Read more
ARMS. THEY ARE JELLO.
Got up late again, thanks to a nice bout of insomnia last night. Ended up tweeting with Jezzie most of the morning until I was finally tired enough to sleep.
Had a ton of errands to do today, and ... Read more
Okay, trying this again.
A couple weeks ago (week 3 into my last attempt at Blizzcon or Bust) I tweaked my back. I wrote about it on my wordpress journal if anyone cares to read about it ( firebudgie.wordpress.com /2011/09/09/and-j... Read more
This week I started my countdown to Blizzcon. I'd really like to drop another 10 pounds, or at least another jeans size, before I go. I finally broke that 166 plateau I was facing, but now it's wanting to stall out at 164 again. Stupid body. But... Read more
It's easy to go "Another birthday...blargh." Today was starting out like one of those days.
Then, thanks to my friends and my Twitter friends, I had several birthday wishes that cheered me up.
I spent a lot of time today trying to conv... Read more
This is a very hard topic, but one I needed to post somewhere for myself to accept the inevitability, whatever it may turn out to be.
I've been in the same relationship for 10 years now. We've been through many good times and many rough tim... Read more
I'm still around, and joined in on the Spring into Summer Bootcamp Challenge. I'm on week 2 now, and so far I think I'm doing pretty well.
I don't know why, but following "my own" workouts have always seemed easier to work into my day than ... Read more
The holidays were a bit of a whirlwind, so I haven't been posting/tracking on SparkPeople. I know, bad Aili. But with New Year's Resolutions and all that, I'm back to it.
I actually managed to keep the weight off over the holidays. I wasn't... Read more
You know that plateau I was on? BAM!
I don't want to speak too soon, but I think a "bad week" took care of the problem.
Let me back up...
So we've been doing the diet "game" for about 6 weeks, and Cataclysm launched on the 7th. We... Read more
