After over a year hiatus, I'm back on the 5% Challenge. I was very active on the challenge for a couple years, taking on leadership roles and having a blast, but never lost my 5%.
I can do this. I can lose my 5%.
The Pre-Challenge assi... Read more
I posted a blog then got all freaked out because I did it from my work computer. So I deleted it. Not that it would matter if they were monitoring it, but I don't know. Do people still do that? I figure there is too much web traffic at even the ... Read more
I was reading this blog: www.drdeah.com/fatigued- finding-a-second-wind-in-b ody-acceptance/
which linked me to this article: blogs.scientificamerican .com/food-matters/2014/05/ 22/what-if-we-all-just-s... Read more
and with a lot of other people, really. Tommy Shaw, for one. He is so hot. For reals.
But especially with myself. Today, within a span of 20 minutes, I had--no kidding!--five jobs fall into my lap, or my inbox, as it were. The first was fro... Read more
My puppy ate the carpet today. Like, a lot. There's no way we're getting our security deposit back now. I wanted to murder her.
But then, I heard her heaving under the couch. I looked under there just in time to see her upchuck. When I went... Read more
I'm trying to decide if I should spend $50 at Sephora so I can get a consultation there before my upcoming conference. On one hand, I'm kind of uncomfortable about money these days, but on the other hand, it might help my confidence and my appea... Read more
I got a birthday card last year. This blog has been sitting in my drafts box for a looooong time--at least five months. Anyway, my friend who sent me the birthday card isn't just anyone--she's a very good friend who lived with us for a year and ... Read more
So, I think I've thoroughly regrouped after my performance evaluation. I've come to terms with the fact that if I'd had it earlier, this wouldn't have happened, that these people are not going to change their minds, no matter how ridiculous, and... Read more
Dear Drizella and Anastasia,
I wanted to follow up on the meeting we had on Friday evening--my performance evaluation. I am glad to have had some time to decompress all of it, and now want to go over some of the issues I see.
First of ... Read more
I was a grouch today. I admit that. This doggie was allowed to sleep with us last night, and she couldn't decide if she was hot or cold, so she went back and forth from under the covers to next to my head over and over, panting when she was hot.... Read more
I know it's been awhile since I've blogged, but I don't know. I have a blog sitting in my drafts box, and I just haven't had the desire to finish it. Perhaps I will at some point.
Daisy's doing well. She is very sweet and silly. Yeeeeeah, I... Read more
Yeah, I got a puppy. Seeing her and getting her made me realize I'm not quite ready for a new dog, but my husband sure is. He had, like, hearts coming out of his eyes like a cartoon character when he saw her. Ah-OOO-ga! ... Read more
Tracking my calories today would be a lesson in futility, starting with even the most basic thing one takes for granted when tracking calories: I can't even tell where yesterday ended and today began! Overnight flights, man. I'm in Brasilia, the... Read more
I went to get a massage today, because I got an email special. I'd never used this guy before, and he was really, really good. His background was in physical therapy, so he really knew his stuff. Unfortunately, he was quite a talker, which I don... Read more
I went over my calories today. It was the first time. I had 10 days of being in-range. I didn't mean to go over, and I only barely went over...and what tipped me over was a pluot I'd forgotten I'd eaten at lunch! That's what happens when you eat... Read more
