I quit my job
After over a week of stress, anxiety, and insomnia, I finally handed in my resignation. I have been unhappy in my job all year and it has just gotten worse and worse. I'm burn out, I'm exhausted, and I need a break for a while. I am on anti anxi... Read more
So, I had 3 days off following my diagnosis of exhaustion. I took my 3 days worth of sleeping pills, as instructed, and tonight is my first night without them... And it's 1:30am and I'm still awake. I tried taking a couple of melatonin, but that... Read more
Officially dianosed with exhaustion
I went to the doctor on Monday. I hadn't slept properly in weeks. I was stressed, my mind was constantly racing, I was over thinking every single second of my job, I was having nightmares when I was sleeping... So I took myself to the doctors ye... Read more
Working, and gymming, and studying, OH MY!
So it's 5am. I've been up since 3am. I live in the windiest city in the world (yes, worse then Chicago) - Wellington, New Zealand. I also live 1 street away from a beach, on a hill. When it is particularly windy, like it is tonight, it is super ... Read more
The great gym question (plus some photos to prove I'm still alive)
Ok, that's an exaggeration. It's a fairly basic question - should I keep my gym membership?
Since I got back from my trip I have been a grand total of once. Yep. One time, in 8 weeks. I KNOW, I KNOW! I've been walking a bit, but mainly I've... Read more
The 6 week adventure with too many photos
Whew! We have been back for 10 days and I'm only just getting around to updating spark!

The first time I met my stepson, Riley, I knew something was different. He was 20 months old and didn't talk or babble at all. The more time I spent, the more sure I was - He had severe delays and possibly autism. It was more than, "boys start t... Read more
Flood! Lots of pictures
I want to start this by saying that I am FINE! I am safe and my husband is safe. All kitties are accounted for and the bunnies are enjoying the view of their new pool from the second story of their bunny house.
This morning I called in sic... Read more
Tales from the gym (holy heck this is wordy!)
First off - 7 weeks and 6 days until we leave for our trip!!!!
Secondly, I've been sick again. Strep throat. For those who don't know, Strep throat is a very serious illness that needs to be treated with antibiotics to prevent it from becom... Read more

Hi all. I'm back on my laptop! The husband managed to fix it for me.
Speaking of husband, we celebrated our first wedding anniversary on Monday. We went out for dinner and then went home and ate freezer burnt wedding cake. It was a low key... Read more
From my ipad
My laptop has died! So I'm updating from my ipad, which is far less convenient to type on!
Working out has been non existent for the past few weeks. I went to Auckland (home) for a week and had planned on not working out that week since I t... Read more

My commitment to myself
First of all, WOW. My last blog must have struck a chord because it was voted a featured blog post and I got 75 comments!
I have recommitted this week. I made it to the gym 3 times! That is a very big deal for me, since I haven't been able ... Read more
Putting myself first again
I have gotten SO bad at putting myself first lately. My job is way more demanding this year and I find myself working more evenings and weekends than I care to admit. The husband and I are slowly doing up our house which takes up weekends. My st... Read more
