If we're being completely honest, I don't want to do anything this week. The exhaustion and frustration of feeling like I'm stuck in a neverending loop has certainly done a number on me. I won't talk about it anymore [EDIT: But I can't help my... Read more
Nearly one month ago I set out some goals for myself in certain exercises. With one week left in May, though, my time to complete these is dwindling fast! I'll have to really buckle down and get these done...especially considering there's a ja... Read more
Okay, so I watched Weight of the Nation last night for just a little bit and, boy, was that depressing! Seriously, hearing doctors go on and on about how hard it is to lose weight, how we're all doing it all wrong, and how even after we lose th... Read more
I debated not sharing this at all with anyone, because I've gotten a lot of crap about how I shouldn't be running at my weight and that's probably why I got hurt in the first place (it isn't). But I won't deny myself the reminder of what yester... Read more
A few positive notes about this weekend.
1) Blackberry Merlot = YUM!
2) Finally got to take a warm bubble bath, read, and shave my legs up proper.
3) Getting a little more adjusted to the standing job each weekend. My body isn't ... Read more
Okay, confession time...it's not working.
LiveFit felt great, it really did...and then I had to give it up. Just like my cardio. I've had to give just about everything up lately and it friggin' BLOWS. And as much as I tell you I just wan... Read more
So I bit the bullet and took yesterday off to get some rest. Of course the day ended up being full of chaos and errands to run and all that jazz, but it wouldn't be my life without the craziness it seems.
I had set an appointment to see th... Read more
More and more as I struggle to adapt my 2-job lifestyle to this way of living (note the order there), I'm faced with difficult challenges when it comes to getting to the gym. Now I love my lifting programs and am currently trying to use them to... Read more
So it's no secret that I've parted ways/broken up with my scale. He hasn't shown me any love in months and, well, sometimes it's best to let someone (*thing*) go if he isn't providing what you need and is only causing pain and toxicity and stre... Read more

Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to take this moment to announce something to you all. I have decided, in my personal opinion, I think it's important...that we stop using the... Read more
Thanks to my girl LIMELIGHTSHINES for sharing this. No words are necessary...just watch and gain some much needed perspective about limitations.

I've been struggling with the idea of this second job for...well, since I started. On the one hand, the extra money will be great in getting my family back where it needs to be. Hubs is in between paycheck periods from the old job and new, and... Read more
As in...this is trying my patience and resilience.
And as in...but I'm still trying.
No, my food choices have not the best. I haven't been able to get enough water in me. I can't seem to find a second to breathe, let alone get a workout... Read more
So, I bit the bullet last night and asked my son to take some progress shots of me. I probably should have put on better pants as these don't quite fit me anymore, but, alas, such are the woes of "weight loss".
We've all been told a millio... Read more
