Yeah, it is that time again...when we face the scale and remember that we were supposed to stay on track and maybe we did, maybe we didn't. This year I didn't. I had one of the most stressful semesters of my law school career, including planing ... Read more
Just wasted time?

Saturday, October 15, 2011      8 comments

Being called "Fat"
Saturday, July 02, 2011      9 comments

So in a recent conversation someone close to me confessed that they think I look "fat." They did not say this with the intention of hurting me, but they said this because they honestly think I look fat. This came as a crushing blow to my self im... Read more

Not giving myself ANY excuses!
Sunday, May 29, 2011      2 comments

Hey there sparkers! I am the queen of excuses and justifications. I can convince myself that almost anything is a good idea, including but not limited to: eating a whole large pizza, not exercising, and not doing chores. My excuses range f... Read more

New Home new life
Sunday, August 08, 2010      1 comments

I'm all moved in to my new place. Ali helped me a TON. The place is really small so it took a ton of work to get it all together. But at last it is starting to feel like home. I'm fairly sure all my hard work on the place was cardio enough! LOL.... Read more
