The Pity party is SO OVER
So, I have been off track for almost a month now. I had friends visiting me the end of May, and let myself get out of my routine. And I have just not tried hard enough to get back in it. I have not been losing the weight I want and even worse,... Read more
Zumba...AKA shakin' my groove thang
I did my normal Monday night Pilates Reformer class last night. After class, my instructor asked if I was staying for Zumba. (Did you NOT just put me through ENOUGH torture?!?) I have been hearing about it though and was curious, so I stayed.... Read more
Do you know anyone like this?!?
I love my sister, don't get me wrong. But seriously, if it was dependant on her to be on time somewhere or the world would end, well I'd bend over and kiss my fat @ss goodbye... I just don't get it. HOW is it you are late to EVERYTHING???

Hey, who turned out the lights?!?!
So I woke up this morning to no electricity. Being that I live in the belly of Tornado Alley, I guess it shouldn't surprise me that last nights wind and storms took out something important in my area. Do you know how bad it sucks to get ready ... Read more
Traveling and diets
So, I have to go to Chicago next week for work. I guess it says something about my attitude (in a good way) that this worries me. Anytime in the past something has come up out of the ordinary, my attitude is, well, it's just for X days, you ca... Read more
It's not always about the numbers...

New month, new focus, RAH RAH RAH
Ok, so I've managed to do pretty well with my eating. That isn't to say I'm in my calorie range every day, but I would say I only go above maybe 1 day out of a two week period, which is WORLD'S better than I was. So I'm not struggling with foo... Read more
Friends and shopping
So I was gone for a loooong weekend, went to visit a friend who lives in MN (another friend and I drove from OK to MN!). We spent 10 hours at the Mall Of America on Friday. It was a shopping marathon. Shopping with skinnier people than yourse... Read more
Finding encouragement, inspiration and humor
What a difference a day makes...yesterday I was feeling down, feeling discouraged and wrote a blog about it. Really I was just wanting to get it out of my head, and stop dwelling. Yes, I realize my blog is public, but never thought anyone woul... Read more
Discouraged but hanging on...
Frustrated today...I need to stay away from the scales. I feel like I've done well with my eating and exercise for the past couple weeks, but the scale is just not moving. I do feel a difference in my clothes, so that's a positive. But why is... Read more
