Witty, Snicker-Inducing Title Here
I'm having an off day today, it's pretty strange!

Eff the Scale!!
Ha! I knew my scale was a big fat liar and not worth my time!!!
Yesterday was the 27th, my new monthly weigh in date, but I had to get up 2 hours earlier than normal and my brain wasn't nearly active enough at that time to remember the scale,... Read more
Pollen: I Think We Should "Just Be Friends."
Wearing contacts has been a NIGHTMARE for me for the first time ever this spring. I've been wearing contacts nearly every day for the last 10 or 11 years. As an irresponsible teenager I often even slept in them and left them in for days up to ... Read more
I don't know why, really, but that's what I was thinking about in the shower this morning. I got this cool new shampoo that helps bring out the red highlights in my naturally strawberry blonde hair, and since it has to sit for 2 minutes before ... Read more
Did Pretty Okay
Well, for a busy and sometimes stressful handful of days centered around food, I'd say I did pretty okay. Not, you know, fantastic or anything to write home about, but not really terrible either. And I'm okay with okay!
Too much stress an... Read more
I Couldn't Help Myself...

Pushing Myself When I Don't Want To!
Believe it or not, that's me!! That's the end of summer 2004, the last time I felt really great about my body. I certainly wasn't at my thinnest, or lightest, or most in sha... Read more
Giving Myself a Break
Not in like a "screw this I do what I want!" stuff my face and lay on the couch way, don't worry!!!

Oh Spicy Chocolate Covered Bacon, I Love You.
That's right, spicy chocolate covered bacon. You read it right!
Bestie was able to come for her Wednesday visit with the wee baby niecelet for the first time in like a month yesterday. We met in college in Santa Cruz and both feel in love wi... Read more
I Just Kept Telling Myself I COULD... And I DID!
I went to RIPPED at the gym last night even though Blobby McFlabface was in fine form with about 9000 excuses to skip it.
"You've only had one rest day after exercising 7 days last week, you're sore!"
"You're still tired from not really s... Read more
Well I skipped out on my gym class last night. I couldn't get out of work until 5:30, so I'm technically justified in not being at a 5:30 gym class, but I could have rushed over and done half of it, so I half-slacked. I also could have done at... Read more
