Where is My Wagon?
So I fell off the wagon.
But I didn't just fall off, I dove off, rolled a few times down a hill, bumped off a few boulders, slid down a muddy path until I flopped face first into a pile of manure then slowly skidded int... Read more

Avoidant Behavior Is My Friend
Thank you, Spark, for providing me with a place where I can spend lots of time not doing my homework and still convince myself that I'm doing something "good" for myself :)
I have a paper due on Monday at midnight-- a paper that is a giant ... Read more
It Isn't Starting Over, My Body Remembers
I think it is a fair assessment that in many ways things got pretty crappy for me in 2012, both in terms of weight loss (gain!!!) and the rest of my life.
Things are so much better today, better in so many ways, except for the stinkin' mea... Read more
My Butt Hurts
Yup. I said it, my butt hurts. A lot. Ouchy. I'm not overly pleased with my butt right now. Spin to yoga sounded like a lovely idea. I get cardio for half an hour with some serious biking and sweating, then I get my reward--some stretching, s... Read more
Back On The Wagon... Err Kayak, Whatever
So I haven't blogged for oh, about 6 months. This is not a good thing. Why? I'm now carrying more adipose tissue than I was in January. Poop. I weighed myself today and I honestly think Captain Meaniehead is lying to me, or at least I'm expe... Read more
Things I Learned Today Other Than Eat Breakfast
Now that's a big scary kind of thing, isn't it? Brings to mind charley horses and barfing and the footage of those freakazoid (read: awesome) Ironman people wetting themselves and crawling across the finish line before collaps... Read more
Motivation, Tomorrow's Triathlon & Shirts
It is bad enough that I am doing a sprint triathlon at the gym tomorrow and harassing others to join me, but I had signed up for a yoga class with a friend prior to that proclamation, so now she insists I hurry up and finish so we can make it to... Read more
I've Lost My Mind... Care To Join Me?
So it's been 10 days of on-plan eating with regular exercise and I'm starting to feel great again, aside from the copious farting. It's time to ramp up my exercise, quit making excuses and being afraid of stupid things. I need to kick things i... Read more
Goals, Poo, Starbucks, TMI, Crazy Contortions & The Resolution You & Yours Need to Make
So December was horrific. Sucktacular. Truly awful. Poopy. How awful you ask? Well, the suckage included 3 trips--2 alone-- from Ohio to Iowa and back which equates to over 4,000 miles driven and over 66 hours driving in 14 days. I'm up 12 ... Read more
Do I Deserve It?
There is this thing we do where we tell ourselves we deserve something.
I've worked hard, I deserve a new car.
I've finally graduated, I deserve a nicer apartment.
I'm cute, I deserve the $17 lipstick from MAC.
I'm the best great dan... Read more
There are 39 Days Left In the Year
Yup. 39 days until there is no more 2011.
That's not quite 6 weeks.
There is a lot of potential left in 2011. LOTS. Heaps. Loads.
That's two food snarfing holidays (maybe more, if you have a birthday coming up). For me, t... Read more
Goals Goals Goals... It's Time For Goals!
When I had a goal of walking a quarter marathon, I walked.
When I had a goal of swimming from Alcatraz to the mainland (until it sold out and I missed out) I swam.
When I was headed toward my 20 year class reunion and hating the idea that I ... Read more
My Day 4/7. Mostly not weight loss related.
Woke Up at 0730 on sleep in day. Boo! But feeling perky all the same.
Perkily decided $110 was too much to spend on having my hair colored. Colored hair myself.
Went to hot yoga. Sad that tomorrow's advanced class is cancelled, happ... Read more
Today's Successes and One Depressing Realization 3/7
Almost forgot to blog today, after I said I would (try) for 7 days straight. So my first success is remembering to blog.
I acquired a gel seat for bike riding. My butt made me do it. I figure it can't hurt, and since eleventy billion... Read more
