Heat makes me dreamy.
Today I just feel so...... confined.
It's like I'm wrapped up in blankets, every inch of my skin feels tight and warm and stiff. It doesn't help that my TOM is just around the corner, as in, any hour now. I was stretching, trying to loose... Read more

I hated writing that last piece, and I felt like something se... Read more

Wow, the little things really add up. I didn't realize, or even notice, ... Read more
Moving On Up

Dang It, Dang It All to H-E-double hockey sticks!!!!
So maybe the puking after trying to run wasn't a fluke. Maybe all the little excuses I've been making really aren't true.
I might just actually be sick. And burned out.
So, I wrote about Friday and puking and being all post-nasal-dri... Read more
Ok, maybe next week
So, I decided to try to begin a C25K today. Like, I can walk pretty fast and pretty far and pretty good uphill, why not add in some jogging. And I got all into it last night, setting up my music to play back and forth with the fast vs slow, ev... Read more
I was reading today and noticed a theme.
Changes for life
There is no endpoint
No finish line
First day of the rest of your life

Well, that's depressing

Like A Bag Of Bricks
I think it just hit me. Seriously hit me-- what I'm doing here.
I've been so focused on the numbers and the planning and the obsessing over the minutia that I forgot the big picture kind of stuff.
I'm losing weight. If my prediction ... Read more
Cheese Pizza is Calling my Name
Hence, I will be eating pizza tonight. Because tomorrow is my big brother's birthday and tonight is his birthday dinner. He has chosen to go someplace with bad food and crazy high prices, and only my parents are allowed to go and pay for the f... Read more
