First of all, a big thank you to all of you for your support yesterday. I'm still a bit of a wreck and getting a bit of distorted vision, but at least I recognize it this time. (I woke up today and looked in the mirror and was sure I was still... Read more
Monday I went home from work early. I didn't feel good. My stomach felt weird. My head was causing some pain. I was exhausted from no sleep the night before. So I left for lunch at 1:15pm and didn't come back. I figured I'd go home, take a... Read more

Today was a good day.
I spent the morning with my coffee, 1/2 a wheat bagel, and Spark. I was super nervous about my upcoming interview at 1:30pm, but my Sparkie friends gave me the encouragement I needed. I painted my toenails and finger... Read more
I nearly chickened out again this week. You see, I had really no clue what to expect from pilates. At one time I thought of pilates as yoga with pulleys and ropes, but it seems to have moved on from that. The guy at the gym told my son, Logan... Read more
I hate self-help books. The only thing I hate more than general self-help books, though, are diet and weight loss books. Let's face it, most of them say pretty much the same thing. And many of them include some diet that, if followed, will al... Read more
I've spent most of the morning and afternoon in training yet again. (And then got asked some rather rediculous and stupid questions from our intern. *sigh*) Anyhow, just a quick note to update you all on yesterday/my mood/etc.
After I wr... Read more
Okay, I wasn't going to blog today because, well, I'm just not feeling up to being happy. So, warning, this is not one of those happy, encouraging, positive blogs. It's a heads up...for you, for me.
I'm more sad and depressed ... Read more
Take a look through my photo gallery on my computer and you'll start to think I'm a narcissistic fool! Page after page of photos of yours truly, often 10-20 in the same outfit from the same day, all different poses. I used to take that many pi... Read more
So, yes. I'm frustrated. I'm moving on from it, but recording it here, for posterity and all that.
Over the past two days I've been avoiding the scale like the plague. I used to weigh-in every morning, but after hearing so much about how... Read more
"I envy your motivation."
I'm so sick of hearing this I could spit! Look, when people think of the word "motivation" they often think of this mystical creature, this invisible feeling that comes from God-knows-where, deep within our souls,... Read more
I was so excited yesterday to have a day off from work that didn't have to include a day off from the gym. (Hate it when my gym closes for holidays, but I understand...) I knew I wanted to renew my Zumba muscles and that I had to ST, but I als... Read more
Since today is a holiday for state workers (YAY! Election Day!), I get to work short days this week, 8:30am-4:30pm. That means that I will be able to get to the gym by 5:30pm instead of 7pm, which opens up a few more classes for me this week. ... Read more
