Inception, Conception, and Contraception
Use these words in a sentence: Since the inception of the idea of conception, my perception about contraception has been... wonky.
As I sit here reflecting on my progress in the past week and a half, and the fact that after 7 months of work... Read more
Day 3 of Reset
I've been steadily working out about 5 to 6 days a week for about a year and a half, but when my diet started slipping, so did my progress. I gained back over half of the weight I'd lost.

So, I have not been doing great at eating right or taking care of myself this year. This is a gross understatement. This isn't really a pretty blog entry.
I went from 230 to 169 last year. This year? The pendulum has swung in the opposite d... Read more

I have gained 6 pounds in the last month and a half.

I'm back, sort of.
I don't have internet at my new place of residence yet, so I can't guarantee how often I will get on here, but I visit my parents' house fairly often for doggy daycare since we are closer to the highway and do not have a fence yet.
The wed... Read more

Pity the Fool
I just got out of a long bath. My ankle feels like I may have sprained it during a workout, so for the first time in years I took a bath, not a shower. I poured in all the good stuff I could find: Lavender Epsom salt and a muscle soak I bought a... Read more
Give Me Just a Little More Time
This month is flying by. I probably will not post as often as I was before, but when I get a chance I will try. I still have pictures to upload from last week, but right now we are in the final month of wedding planning so things are getting hec... Read more
