It's just my luck that I come down with a cold just as it's getting nice out. UGH, what the frack, immune system?! Haven't I been giving you what you need to keep me safe from ye olde creeping crud? Especially Taylor's creeping crud; thought for... Read more

(Why yes, I was watching Wreck-It Ralph last night, how'd you know?) This last week I haven't consumed a drop of soda, have pre-packed my work lunch with good-for-me things, and have taken all my vitamins and such in the correct amounts (no... Read more

I have discovered that while one is on time off of work it is very easy to track foods and exercise and all those things... but when one returns to work and real life.... eh, not so much. *grin* While I may not be writing down every single thin... Read more

I have discovered that being constantly hungry does nothing for my state of being. Today I have been hungry, and very restless and grouchy with it. I made a proper breakfast. I had a healthy snack. I had a salad with good proteins for lun... Read more

Thing one I have realized about why I keep losing track. Logging everything is a pain! Yeah, I said it. A PAIN. Seriously, picture me with a small green notebook in my left hand, a pen (a nice one) in my right, walking around my apartment loo... Read more

It's something!

yesterday I re-affirmed my desire and drive to get myself back in shape. Not skinny, not flat-bellied, not perfect... just fit. To be able to run up stairs without getting winded, to fit all my clothes, to just be... fit. I drank water, I logg... Read more

Happy new year! Unlike last year, I started this year off right by NOT being late to work first day out. How'd I manage this? By not having to work on the 1st because I am far too expensive for my store to afford paying me time and a half. HA! *... Read more

So it's come down to this...

I don't know why I bother jumping on the scale anymore. All it does is glare back in big red numbers and tell me that I'm doing things wrong. As of five this morning I have officially reached my highest adult weight. I told myself I'd never be... Read more

Sooo... I bought a few Halloween tees yesterday because it's that time of year and who would I be if I didn't score more witchy apparel... and I picked up my normal size... and... either the clothing companies are totally screwing with me or I a... Read more

No surprise, I am a HUGE fan of The Oatmeal. What's The Oatmeal, you ask? The Oatmeal, AKA Matthew Inman, is a web artist who is just a wee bizarre who has several comics (and a book!) about struggling with "The Blerch" and dieting and why he r... Read more

As I sit here I'm consciously trying to keep myself from slouching. I am a horrrrrrrible sloucher. When I'm at my laptop I slouch. When I'm working at the computer at work I slouch. It's comfortable, it doesn't take effort, I just wanna slump ov... Read more

today I discovered a whole side of my town that I didn't know existed. :) And it only cost the city... what did the guy tell me? almost $700,000. *snerk* I went to the Ren Fest with my family and my boyfriend on Sunday, and I had a great ti... Read more

So, today has been a rather disappointing day (hole in favorite shirt, stood up by favorite sister, tonight's dinner ingredients spoiled, etc) so I decide to add further insult by attempting to calculate just what my ideal weight should be. Wha... Read more

GRR. Just... grr. So I know I've gained weight. But I haven't weighed myself in a while, and my favorite pair of jeans have been hanging out in my sewing room waiting for a couple of strategic patches on a couple of weak points. Yes, the ... Read more

Take THAT, medical anxiety! :P

I did it! I passed! Hot Diggity Daffodil! (Yeah, do the Bender! Everybody do the Bender! *robot dance*) Today was the day, returning to the doc's to see if my BP was off due to meds or nerves... The last three weeks have seen an average of... Read more
