Words are POWERFUL.
"Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt me."
If I could find the person who came up with that nonsense, I'd go back in time and assassinate them. Those 13 words are the most damaging, dest... Read more
Getting to the gym for a workout sets me up for a successful day from right in the beginning.
It gets me up early so I'm available to do the things I need to do. I'm a night owl by nature, and am happiest staying up until 3 AM and sleeping... Read more
I think I'm being extra icky and bloaty lately not just because of the fast food overdose (although that's definitely a HUGE part of it) but I suspect I'm around my "time of the month." I don't really have a period per se; I have an IUD, so I h... Read more
Over the past few months, I've gotten to where I don't eat too much fast food. It's not something I crave, and I've never really been a big fan.
Today, though, I really, really wanted some Arby's. I like Arby's generally; as far as fast fo... Read more
So, it's no secret that this entire summer has kinda sucked for me. I've been terribly inconsistent with my workouts, and in fact, haven't been more than once a week in two months. Very uncool. Part of it is that without the motivation of having... Read more
Some of you may have read my previous blog entry, "If nothing changes? Nothing changes.": http://www.sparkpeople.c om/mypage_public_journal_i ndividual.asp?blog_id=4931328 . This is sort of the sister post to that.

This is a very exciting non-scale victor that I always think about when I lay down for bed, and forget about first thing in the morning, so that I never post to crow about it.
This is one I've actually been looking forward to for many yea... Read more
First and foremost, let me thank each and every one of you who took the time to wish me a happy birthday. It means the world to me, and doubly so because you know the pitfall of a birthday celebration. :)
Did I eat too much? Oh HELL yes. I... Read more
Turns out the bike repair shop didn't call me when my bike was ready. LOL. I called today and it was ready! My husband tried to talk me into waiting to go get it until Monday, since we're busy today and tomorrow's my birthday, but I just kinda l... Read more
So, I overate today. I haven't input the final damage, but it's not going to be pretty.
I think this lack of exercise is really starting to hurt. I'm trying to ease back in, but it's tough; today I just lost my self control.
Two ste... Read more
My husband bought some snacks for the girls and me the other day. Fudge rounds, an old favorite of mine. I didn't ask him to, but it was sweet, and I accepted.
It's about 2.36 ounces of fudgy goodness. Can't be that bad, right? 9 months a... Read more
A new dragon has replaced the snack dragon. I have definitely identified my biggest eating problem.
Yesterday, I seriously bombed out in the food department. It's eating out that does it! You see, the last few weeks hav... Read more
Generally speaking, I'm a pretty together chick. Recent travails aside, I do pretty well with self control. I avoid binges, for the most part, I make healthier and healthier choices as time goes by (seriously, today I got Baked Lays as a cravin... Read more
I'm very pleased with the last couple of weeks. We went on vacation two weeks ago, and a trip to the beach was not kind to me... I overindulged, and bloated two whopping pounds (I know, I know. ;) Not bad.) I wasn't too worried, though; vacati... Read more
