I'm Grounded and the Tale of Jerky Jerkace
When I was bad when I was a kid, my stepdads always took away TV priveleges as a frontline punishment (and yes that says stepdads- I had a few of em. My mom was always working and never home and didn't care what I looked like. We got closer as... Read more
Under Pressure... or Ice Ice Baby?
Vanilla Ice got sued mega big time for sampling Queen + Bowie's beats. He tweaked them only slightly and expected no one to notice. These days, people are noticing little changes in me before I do. 50 lbs is a lot. 50 lbs is a small child, a... Read more
Bite-Size Fun for 2013
I'm a little scared, because I know this is the year I'm going to get to goal and finish school forever. I'm not allowed back in a classroom unless I'm at the front of it when my master's is complete, and I won't be a big girl anymore. When you'... Read more
As Good as it Gets?
I don't do a very good Jack Nicholson impression. If I did, I would use this skill to make money. Here's a picture to get my point across. Rawr... sort of.
I haven't be... Read more
Veggie Tables - Three Weeks In
I'm digging this vegeatiran thing. I have Morningstar HARMS at least once a day, out of necessity. When I get comfortable and figure out some different stuff to do for lunch at work (which for me happens at midnight) then I'll start incorporat... Read more
Vegetary Anne - Healthy by Default
I haven't been able to keep weight off since I switched to nights. The cleanse didn't go very well- I did alright on it but I was so miserable I didn't make it all the way through.
So I've tried literally everything under the stars to ma... Read more
3 Week Metabolic Showdown (aka The Numbers Game)
This blog is to announce that I am officially waging war on my metabolism. I enjoyed the NC state fair, some brewskies with my brother and sister-in-law + my wonderful hubsband. I didn't track but I enjoyed it. It was ... Read more
Rolling Up My Sleeves
Things were going well in Bex Land. I had an adventure at Torrid in Greensboro, NC while I was visiting for class and fell in love with an ensemble. I didn't purchase it in-store, but stole it for 20% off online with an additional 10% Cosmo co... Read more
The SP Effect
I find that I have looked at so many before and after photos- for motivation, inspiration, etc. - that I look at ALL photos in this light. I'll see a picture of someone I haven't seen in awhile and automatically think- Wow she looks amazing!

More than Splitting Hair(s)
I've noticed among the ladies I follow that have lost significant amounts of weight (50, 100, 150 lbs or more) that their hair often lengthens and lightens as the weight comes off. This is not always the case, and I'm certainly not saying long h... Read more
A (Brief) Open Letter To...
To every jerk who has ever heckled me on stage while I'm doing something you would never have the guts to even attempt; to every idiot who felt the need to yell something unkind to me from their car as I RAN past you at Hugh McRae or the outskir... Read more
Switching Gears: A Study of Me in the Now
After three years on Spark and hundreds of fresh starts, I've finally come to the conclusion that my focus may have been off along. I've been sabotaging myself inadvertently and it's time for yet another new beginning. :)
I need to focus o... Read more
Ugh- I'm typing this from my flippin' recliner when I should be running. Actually I'm supposed to be at work. Instead, I'm in tremendous pain and I can't really walk.
At the outset of last week, I had decided to NOT go for my first half m... Read more
Hotness Training Month 3: Unplanned Maintenance
So long story short: mom and grandma, both in the hospital in mid-to-late February. Both are out, grandma is in physical rehab for a few weeks, mom is... mom. :)
Added dairy and whole grains back in- feeling much better. A stall for the p... Read more
