Man, today I am having some Grown Up Problems™. And they suck!
I'm not super ready to talk about it with my actual, legit friends and family. I don't know why. I guess because I'm more accountable to them, and the decisions I make will effe... Read more
Ever since March 27th, I've been in kind of a weird... foggy rush? There's so much to fight and so little time to get things done. Our hope waxes and wanes with each new development, and it's so ungodly exhausting to constantly think, "Today! To... Read more
A Little Help?
Hey guys -

I wasn't going to update...
...because this isn't the photoblog I keep talking about. I feel bad about not making it yet, but I've honestly just been brutalized by work over the last 10 days. My co-workers mother did die on Saturday, so she will be completely out of the of... Read more
Some ME Time!
I love going to Zumba. It's essentially the greatest decision I've ever made, for two reasons.
1) It gives me and my best friend a chance to hang out twice a week!
2) It gives me some MUCH needed "me time."
Paula and I have a li... Read more
This is not the blog you're looking for...
Okay, so the big, fun "big pants" blog I was going to do is STILL happening... just, not now. Not til Saturday, probably, because my life is insane right now.

Gonna Take Some Pictures
My favorite band did a limited (24-hour only release!) t-shirt two weeks ago, and the singer posted a status to Facebook on Wednesday that he put them all in the mail that morning, with BONUS surprises. :3
I figure coming from TX to NE, th... Read more
Chest Cold Bleh.
Yesterday, I forced myself to take a day off work to stay home and get some extra sleep because I've been fighting a chest cold for the last week. When I woke up in the morning, I was hot and dizzy. I pretty much knew that I needed to stop.

I just want to weigh under 200 lbs
IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK!?
I'm up 1.5 lbs this week, and I know all the explanations for this: water retention due to muscle destruction, new muscle being built, my body freaking the eff out because of the new program.

BOOM! One Thousand Calories Burned.
Yesterday, I accomplished one of my main March goals: to hit 1,000+ calories burned during my one hour Zumba class.
I finished the hour at 1,002 calories. And as soon as I saw that, I was almost jumping up and down ecstatic. I hollered to ... Read more
Last night, C went to a fancy dinner thing for his job. This meant that I got to be lazy about dinner, because I didn't have to worry about cooking for him. So I microwaved one of those Steamfresh bags of broccoli, carrots and cauliflower with c... Read more

Soup and Sleep and Shoes and Stuff
I feel like I could sleep for years this morning, but I did get some good sleep and relaxation in this weekend. It's kind of working out nicely that I do all of my cardio Monday - Friday and then just a strength day on Saturdays. I get a lot of ... Read more
