Tomorrow Is My 5K... Today I Am Faking Enthusiasm!!!!
Tomorrow is my 5K, that means I don't have to work out today, right?

The Definition Of Insanity Is...
Have you heard this line about insanity: the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? I really try not to behave as though I'm insane, but I kept beating my big fat noggin against the same ... Read more

I Blame You For This.

I Had Another Fatmare
I've talked about having fatmares in the past. There are plenty of variations, Jenn as Winnie-the-Pooh getting stuck in Rabbit's window, and another version where I'm basically on the TV show Dirty Jobs but I can't fit in to, or get out of, any... Read more
It's Like a Teeter Totter!
