In a Funk
Friday, April 01, 2011      2 comments

I woke up with a bad attitude today and I'm trying to figure out why. I had a headache this morning, which either stemmed from sinuses or dehydration. So I drank some water and I felt a little better. I weighed myself and the scale was up. ... Read more
The Vacation Day that Wasn't
Thursday, March 31, 2011      2 comments

Yesterday I took a half-day off from work as "vacation time" so that I could meet with the Masters of Arts in Teaching program director. I had also scheduled a meeting with the chiropractor for later that afternoon--basically a follow-up on what... Read more
Silly Things I'm Worried About
Wednesday, March 30, 2011      5 comments

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but not only am I going back to school to get my teacher's licensure, but I'm going back with the sole intention of teaching English to 7-12th graders. Why high schoolers? Because I'm more of a li... Read more
Crap, now what?

I am extremely nervous and yet excited right now. My stomach is full of butterflies. I don't know whether I should cry or laugh or smack myself. I signed up for my first 5K today. And it's next weekend. EEEEKKK! I don't know... Read more
What 139 Looks Like
Monday, March 28, 2011      8 comments

Saturday was my first official weigh-in that was under 140 pounds...and I beat it by one whole pound. 139, baby! I thought I would take some celebratory pictures. ... Read more
Today is Being Difficult
Friday, March 25, 2011      4 comments

The scale was up nearly a half pound today from yesterday (but still below 140!), and I figured that was because of TOM and doing some more ST last night. Not too worried, but I promised myself I was going to have a nutritionally stellar day. ... Read more
That's Odd
Thursday, March 24, 2011      5 comments

I ran outside last night. No music. Just me and my phone that I'd morphed into a timer of sorts. Since I'm still doing the Spark 5K Your Way sessions, I needed to run four minutes and walk one. So I set my alarm clock for five minutes after I s... Read more

I'm trying to be more positive, but it's been hard. I'm just overly emotional today. Thank goodness no one has deigned to yell at me, because I would probably burst into tears. We had a health fair today at work and because I was just in a ... Read more
Crash, Burn, Cry
Wednesday, March 23, 2011      8 comments

Last night I was uploading some photos from my camera to my computer. Most of them were of the weekend and the children playing and the men being silly. A few were of me and my girlfriends. And that's where it all went downhill. A part... Read more
The Jeans Problem
Tuesday, March 22, 2011      4 comments

I pinpointed the reason for my lackadaisical attitude over the weekend. My clothes. Namely, my jeans. Yeah, it's a little weird for me to blame an over-indulgent weekend on my pants, but let me explain. I am curvy. As in CURVY. I ... Read more
Some Days I Just Give Up
Monday, March 21, 2011      4 comments

Some days I get tired of calorie counting. Some days I get tired of exercising. I don't want to always push myself. Some days I just want to take it easy. Some days I just want to be lazy. Some days I don't want to think abou... Read more

Feeling good and healthy about myself yesterday, I decided to check and see what my ideal body weight is (thinking, of course, that I was nearing it). Sometimes I have stupid ideas. All I succeeded in doing was completely depressing m... Read more
The Healthiest Person in the Room
Thursday, March 17, 2011      10 comments

Hanging out with my friends (one who is super skinny and the other who is overweight) the other night made me realize something: I am the healthiest of all my friends. But the thing is, my friends don't really think of being healthy. They t... Read more
She Tried to Eat Me!
Wednesday, March 16, 2011      20 comments

I didn't take the cat last night. I feel horrible about it and it took me forever to go to sleep last night because I felt so bad. I kept wondering if there was something else I could have done, but first let me tell you what happened. ... Read more
Oh, Snap!
Tuesday, March 15, 2011      8 comments

Yesterday was a super busy day at work with lots of people coming in and needing things from me specifically. In the midst of this chaos, I receive a phone call from a lady who has always just toed the line of being rude and condescending each ... Read more
