First Time Ever
This will be the first time I've ever attempted to do some New Year's Resolutions type things. My NYR is to be good to myself. So I'm starting this morning.
My goal is to get off the medications: 1750mg of metformin, 20mg pravastatin, 4... Read more
What is Wrong with Me?
Why can't I seem to stick to anything? I did so good from June to August - I dropped about 15 pounds. And then suddenly, I just go right back to my old ways and gain it all right back. I'm so miserable, sad, depressed, and lonely and I just d... Read more
I actually moved back in February like I wanted to, because I just couldn't deal with living with other people anymore. I now live alone. Recently I went on the South Beach Diet with a coworker in support of her husband because he was told if ... Read more
I Was Zapped. It Worked (Mostly).
So, I had the laser treatments since August. I'd say 80% of the hair is gone. I now wax every few weeks and it's like I don't have issues at all.
With this out of the way, I'm wanting to start going to the gym - but alas, I moved in with ... Read more
Something Happened to Me.
I believe I've mentioned previously that I suffer from PCOS. The symptoms of this awful condition include, among other things, hair growth in places a woman shouldn't have hair. I've suffered with this for over 10 years now, and it has impacte... Read more
I got into school and I start an online course in July, followed by some traditional courses mixed in at the end of August. Time to finish my degree and be good to myself.
I can't sleep tonight, and I wish I had some Tylenol P.M. I drank ... Read more
Thursday, 64 DEGREES?!!! in February??? What!!!?
I walk to work. Walking to work provides me with a mile of walking five days a week. Over the winter it's been so bitter cold, I sometimes cheat and drive in, and pay a rediculous amount of money to park in the city.
So when I saw 64 de... Read more
Bloggity Blog Blog - Awareness!!!! It Works!
I am experimenting. This week alone I've dropped 3 pounds already and I'm not even dieting. How, you are asking. I know you are thinking, she's starving herself. NOPE. I am AWARE. Becoming AWARE may be the single most important thing you ca... Read more
What Am I So Afraid Of?
I feel like I'm testing "how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?" The center of the tootsie pop is the root of everything that makes me so awesome, and the tootsie pop itself is the sweet, sweet layer of indecision, in... Read more
I'm Not Happy.
I can't motivate. I can't sleep. I eat like crap. I'm lonely. I'm miserable. I hate my life.... Read more
Perhaps This is the Answer I've Been Waiting to Hear...
I joined the gym last year, and in the summer I got a bike and started riding the trails. I tried, sometimes I'd fail and I'd go right back to doing the things I shouldn't. I had friends who were active and trying to tell me how to do things e... Read more
Putting an End to "Nothing's Changed About Her"
So I joined SparkPeople in 2005 or 2006, and to date, I've done very little, if anything at all to stay motivated. The emails I get on a daily basis from SparkPeople was making me depressed, knowing I'd never really look at the new recipe or ne... Read more
This past weekend was very difficult to maintain my sanity. I love my mom and dad, and it was nice to have my nephew out of the house visiting his mother - but the temptation to binge is always looming in the distance. I still catch myself ope... Read more
The First One (I posted this on MySpace, too)
Hello my friends!
As I am sure you all very well know, I've been slacking and overindulging, I've let my body become a slum - so, as part of my goal on my Fast Track for the next two weeks, I have to tell at least one person a day about my... Read more
