April Showers Bring May Flowers...and Lots of Humidity!
I'm excited about the start of spring! But I have to admit, the humidity is crazy~! I know this is Florida, but I was hoping this kind of humidity wouldn't start for a long while. Usually, the worst of it hits during the late summer to early fal... Read more
I swear I didn't quit, I was just bedridden.
So hopefully, the few lovely people I have befriended on this site have not considered me another drifter that gave up too soon in her challenge.
I know I haven't been very attentive to my trackers as of late. Unfortunately, I contracted a... Read more

From Laying Down All Day to Craving Workouts
First off, shin splints are the devil! I have some leg compression sleeves that have been a God send, but the aching in the bone is still a nuisance. Tell it to go away. :/

Low-Cal Cooking: Mushroom, Onion & Sausage Omelette
I don't know about anybody else, but I love me a good, hearty breakfast. But being on a low-calorie budget tends to put a huge damper on my usual favourites. It really cuts out a list of "can haves" with "can't haves" in bold, red lettering. And... Read more
Releasing the Scale and Embracing How I Feel Instead.

It's a conspiracy, I tell ya! Yearly illness on a schedule?
So I've found this strange, but for the past 3 years just like clockwork, I've managed to be ill around the 5th of January.
Year one, I had an ovarian cyst that decided to make itself known. Year two, I had uncontrollable vomiting that res... Read more
No weight lost, but still a good start!
So far the New Year has been going great now that my cold has passed. I admit, I'm avoiding any weight postings because when a woman is around her time of the month, water retention and bloating are unavoidable. I always shift anywhere from 3-8 ... Read more
Lost My Mojo! Oh noes!
