Who am I?

A different look at life
I am in the craziest of places mentally--as if I am having a mini "mid-life crisis", questioning all aspects of myself and my life. What do I want to do? Where do I want to do it? How can I further my career? What new things do I want to try?Str... Read more
Strange relationship with food
My husband brought this up the other day, but it's something I had already figured out. I find great success, then I slip up and fall (seemingly on purpose), then I get back on track---all to feel a sense of accomplishment, of overcoming. I do i... Read more

Poor Nutrition Day!
I have to stop eating BIG Cheez-Its at work. Ridiculously fattening, but soo delicious. Today was super high in fat and carbs and cals, but I feel okay. My swim went well, so that helped with the calories a bit. Too tired to write much today. G... Read more
