I haven't made any blog entry posts on here or anything for about 2 years now. If ... Read more
VERY quick insanity update.
Hi alllll. Okay, I don't have much time to post an actual in-depth blog because I am sweaty and smelly and sore and it's already almost 12:15AM, but I just want to let everyone know that I've officially started Insanity and so far, it's definite... Read more
Prepping for INSANITY (OooOOoooh!) and Starting Measurements
So, for those of you who haven't read my previous blog, I'm starting the 60 day "Insanity" program (created by BeachBody, the company I believe is also behind P90X), since my boyfriend bought it recently and I've been dying to try it. Plus, he's... Read more
YES. STRENGTH TRAINING.
On a random, positive note: I finally ordered "The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Clean" and "The New Rules of Lifting for Women." I’ve been yearning for these books for a while and was hoping to pick them up at my local Barnes and Noble, but ... Read more
"STOP hating yourself for everything you aren't. START loving yourself for everything you are."
"No one can tell what goes on in between the person you were and the person you become. No one can chart that blue and lonely section of hell. There are no maps of the change. You just come out the other side.

Okay. THAT was an accomplishment.
Hello all. :)
I'd like to make this as short and sweet as possible, since I have a biology test to study for (blech!). There is something I've been dying to do forever, and I finally got my chance today:

A (VERY) Brief Reminder to Myself of How Far I've Come
I don't really count this as a blog update (I'm at school and I have like...5 minutes, haha). But I want to post this to remind myself of just how FAR I have come in the past year and a half. While I may be struggling to get completely back on m... Read more
How and Where do I Restart?
Stay tuned for some sick-day musings.
I'm getting back to the place (mentally) where I start to get antsy when I haven't moved in a while. Which is a HUGE difference from the past 7 months of "oh hey I have nothing to do and that couch look... Read more

Denial Hurts so Deeply (some language!)
What do you say to yourself when you're finally ready to accept the fact that you have fallen COMPLETELY off the wagon? That you've bullshat everyone--including yourself--for almost five months and have nothing to show for it?

What Do You Do When...?
Let me preface this by saying that I am by no means expecting an answer to my problems somewhere in responses to this blog. Also, let me say that I do not expect many replies, since I've been awful with blogging and when I DO blog I'm lazy and d... Read more
(Progress Pics!) My Nine Month Sparkiversary and a Look into Birthdays Past and Present
I'm tired of starting each of my blogs with a statement about how _____ is going wrong, I'm failing at ____, or struggling with X, Y, and Z, so I'm not going to talk about that tonight. Nope. Not a single negative word will fall from my lips. I... Read more
The Little Epiphanies in Life...(It's a long one!)
To say that the past, oh, month or so has been a "rollercoaster" would be the world's greatest understatement. Seriously, in the history of all understatements, it's pretty high up there, wedged between "I think the kids from the Jersey Shore ta... Read more

Time to Get Crazy. Forget Being Lazy.
[HA! I like to rhyme. :P]
When did I become the girl who watches myself from the side lines? Who gives a few half-hearted cries of excitement when I turn down this bad food or that hour or two on the couch? Since when has it become acceptab... Read more
