So I got the divorce papers signed on Thursday. It's up to him to file. I don't think he has the money yet, and once he does it's a 90 day process, but the papers are signed and that's it on my end. That night I got drunk and made brownies. I at... Read more
The Ex's Personal Ad
So things were actually going along well until yesterday. I pulled into work and just then got a message from a friend. My ex had a personal ad up on Craigslist. Somehow it didn't help that it was in the men seeking men section.
After takin... Read more
Cooking for one
So I am still not used to cooking for one. It's only one less than two, but even when there was two of us we always had leftovers, and now it seems like I just have MORE leftovers.
"I am so sick of the peanut noodles I made," I told my frie... Read more
Filling out the paperwork
So yesterday I met with my husband in a coffee shop yesterday to fill out the divorce paperwork. We spent about 20 minutes looking at the mountain of paperwork before giving up and paying for LegalZoom. It's sort of like TurboTax, but for divorc... Read more
I can't sit still
Physically, I can actually sit still a little *too* well. That's why I bought a FitDesk...
I had a very interesting phone call with a friend this weekend. According to her, she talked to my estranged husband the day he moved out and he told... Read more
First off wow, thanks to everyone who expressed their support on my last entry. My email kept blowing up with comments!
So my husband has moved out, and it's actually a breath of fresh air. For the month between him saying he wanted to end ... Read more
Preparing for the next step
So my husband is moving out on the 16th. The date is set, the boxes are packed. He's taking the vacuum. He literally never vacuums. But by golly, he's taking it! I need to find a way to finance a new vacuum.
The 16th is also going to be my ... Read more
I haven't touched base here in about a year. So quick updates: weight loss isn't going so well. I picked up probably 15lbs since I started school and it stopped there at least. I got a FitDesk, basically a stationary bike with a desk attachment,... Read more
So I haven't really had time to blog. It's November, which is NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), but I'm not participating this year since I simply don't have time.
Anyway, the scale has been moving SLOWLY in the right direction. Lik... Read more
So I am still working on my two goals. I just had to re-start the fitness streak today...I got to 9 days and then my work schedule got wonky with extra shifts and so I missed a couple days. So I restarted my streak today with a hike. Going to tr... Read more
Whelp, it happened. I hit 250lbs the other day. That's MORE than I weighed when I started SparkPeople! One year ago I was down to 225, so that's 25lbs gain in a year.
So I spent the weekend trying to figure out what to do about it. I was pl... Read more
Crawling back on track
So, this year so far has not been too well fitness-wise. The longer commute since I started my new job last August has eaten into my schedule. I didn't lose, but I managed to maintain until April when I started school. I've gained 5 lbs since th... Read more
Death of a grocery store
So today, I heard some tragic news. My beloved grocery store is closing. The Market on Lakeway starts its liquidation sale tomorrow.
No, this won't throw me into a food desert or anything...there's actually a closer store that is a mere two... Read more
Fitness Tracker Meme
I like hiking. This past season I aimed for a day hike a week, which I think I almost hit. While I enjoy hiking, my fitness tracker seems to flip out with angry red text every time I log a 4+ hour hike.

Crawling my way back to the track
So this morning I realized I've been in a cycle that hasn't been good for my waistline.
Somehow, we've stopped stocking the kitchen. I will see it is out of food, and I will be tired and order delivery. By the time I have the time and energ... Read more
