Tuesday's Jury Duty Musings
I, first, should thank those of you for the support and advice on my previous blog. My mother-in-law did not force her poor eating beliefs on me or my daughter that night; instead she force fed her plantains and hot dogs. Which did bring me to a... Read more
I am, admittedly, venting here.
Today is one of my four solid "days off" before I begin teaching summer school and has been a delightful day with the little one thus far - not too mention we've been doing so much that I'm 500 steps away from my daily goal and it isn't even 2 p... Read more
It's been a while
I appear to struggle with my allegiance to SP when pregnant; though that seems to be the habit of many an SP member when pregnant or immediately afterwards. It's something about suddenly not knowing your body so well that makes the intuitive und... Read more
A Return from Vacation
So I'm typing this on my phone, which is a first, so forgive my brevity and potential for typos.
We returned from a wonderful vacation that was filled with walking and climbing and unadulterated family time as well as indulgences. Indulgences ... Read more
I ate lasagna.
I ate lasagna tonight.
And I liked it.
But before this turns into a Katy Perry parody for Italian food, I feel the need to address that I hate lasagna. I can honestly say that absolutely nothing about its texture or taste has ever appe... Read more
More grievances than musings, but it's that kind of day
I thought about going to bed early and decided on blogging instead. Perhaps I will regret this in the morning, but only time will tell.
There's a lot going on in my head lately, which seems to be primarily stemming from some serious dissati... Read more
The 140 - 142 Paradigm & Other Musings
140.4 lbs - 142.4 lbs is my consistent weigh-in range. At first it was three weeks at 142.4 and then one week at 140.4, always the week before my TOM. This time when my TOM was expected, I was, sure enough, 140.4 again. But this morning the patt... Read more
Bury the Lead
So many things have happened and/or are worthy of blogging (for myself, of course), but alas time has not been my friend - or perhaps blogging just hasn't been my priority? I guess it's all a matter of perception.
On that, I have been havin... Read more
The Daily Dissertation (or series of grievances)
I'm not a fan of these few and far between blogs and, quite frankly, in an ideal, meritocratic, world riddled with self-confidence, I would blog daily - sometimes twice - and be paid handsomely.
Alas, this is not that world - one day, perha... Read more
Time Flies and Stands Still All at the Same Time
I've been busy.
In an alternate world that busy is jet-setting into unadulterated beauty where I swim and hike over and through landscapes of unspeakable colors and terrains and I end every day surrounded by a warm, glowing setting sun, my ... Read more
Chalk it all up to Fat Tuesday
This blog has nothing to do with Fat Tuesday, but as I'm running through what feels like a nonstop, crazy, and more emotional than should have been day, I'm hoping it's because it's Fat Tuesday. The logic? There is none, but I think I need a rea... Read more
This isn't my first rodeo (TMI)
Bare with me, folks, it's another one of THOSE blogs. Let's recap: the first time I thought I was pregnant, I was pregnant. The second time I thought I was pregnant, I was simply returning to my cycle postpartum. The third time I thought I was p... Read more
I. Feel. Pretty.
I've blogged before about my fairly consistent insecurities, which is certainly an issue and always will be to some extent. But aren't we all works in progress? And I'm not going to blog about that, but rather what materialized beyond my insecur... Read more
And So Concludes Another Whole30 (Oh, and there's that goal weight)
I've been busy - busier than usual - and I know that even if there were more hours in the day or days in the week I would still, more than likely, feel completely overwhelmed with, well, stuff. But that is not the purpose of this blog.
I - ... Read more
I Wrote a Blog
I wrote a blog.
I had clarity.
And a nice little writer's voice going, quite frankly.
And then the g*d damned server fritz and I lost it.
Along with my clarity.
