How many time's the charm?
It's been probably a good 5 months or so since I made a good-faith effort to track, log, exercise, budget, limit, and all the other things required for a successful SparkPeople endeavor. At first I felt bad, then it got easier and easier, and n... Read more
The Law Enforcement Family
I haven't been on here much lately. There's been a lot going on in my life and, for the time being, I'm having a hard time keep track of tracking. I'm trying to be conscientious of what I'm eating (I ate like $h!t today, but otherwise have bee... Read more
My god man, what happened???
UGH, last week was CRAP! Too many parties, too many celebrations, and too little time at home--my husband came home Friday night so we were all over the place all weekend. Mexican food was EVERYWHERE. And I LOVE Mexican food. And I have abou... Read more

I'm being harassed by my co-workers to try Zumba. I've finally given in to their pleas, but what the heck am I getting myself into?

Glad It's Over...
Election season, that is. No more ads bashing one party or the other. I am content with the fact that my department will be run just as the way it has been for another 4 years--meaning nothing will get done and important issues will go by the ... Read more
Running in the rain??
I have a crazy urge to go out and run today. The idea of running isn't crazy, but if you looked out the window and saw what I see, that's where the crazy comes in.
I'm not sure why, but I always get these urges on days the rain is coming d... Read more
A kick-start or a kick in the @$$
This morning I feel like poo. And it's all my fault. I take full responsibility. I just wish I would remember this every time I attempt to do the same thing again.
For the past 4 days, every show that we've sat down to watch has involved... Read more
Today I had the most surprisingly tasty sandwich for lunch. I was going to make a turkey and cheese sandwich until I smelled the turkey. I threw it out and we'll leave it at that. So, since I already had my heart set on a similar sandwich, I ... Read more
Wow is this random!
What happens when you have too much energy and too many things going on in your mind? Well, in my mind, it leads to this. Apparently all of my chores didn't exhaust me enough...and I JOGGED 3k worth of my neighborhood, which is why I think I'm... Read more
Just me venting (since I use this as a journal)...you don't have to read. :-)
The Washington State Traffic Safety Commission (WTSC) has committed to ZERO traffic fatalities and/or serious collisions from speed, DUI, or lack of seat belt use by the year 2030.
That's a lofty goal. And the majority of my position at th... Read more
A co-worker just suggested that Chinese sounds good for lunch. WHAT TO EAT??!?! I have limited my consumption of food establishment meals since July, and the few times I have gone out, it's never been to Chinese. THEY BREAD and TEMPURA everyt... Read more
I took my husband to the airport again yesterday afternoon, so I'm a single mom for 2 weeks again. I take him to the airport with mixed emotions--happy he's been home with our son for 2 weeks, sad because he's going to be gone working 2 weeks, ... Read more
