I am overwhelmed. And when I get overwhelmed, I tend to avoid doing the stuff that will make being overwhelmed less... overwhelming. So I've been trying to catch up on all the things I've been avoiding. I worked out this morning, I've eate... Read more
Standing Up For Myself
Thursday, August 20, 2015      18 comments

Yesterday I reached my limit. I work with a grand total of 4 other people. My boss likes to be vague when explaining things to people, and prefers to leave passive aggressive notes instead of saying stuff to people's faces. I, as the resid... Read more
LIFE Update

I know I haven't been around much. I don't have any excuse except that I just have felt like writing much lately. Not 100% sure why. Not feeling inspired I guess. Not feeling victorious because I'm running. Who knows. I'll start by recappi... Read more
Quick Foot Update

Dr. says he's almost certain it's not a stress fracture. Will be getting an X-ray just in case. He doesn't think it's a Morton's Neuroma either. He thinks it's extensor tendonitis, which would be very good because the fix for that is stretching,... Read more
August Goals

I haven't written a goal blog in a while. I guess getting on the scale this morning and seeing 175.0 made me realize I need a flippin' goal! I'm almost to my goal weight anniversary and I'm weighing in 15 lbs heavier. Yes, a bunch of it is muscl... Read more

Monday evening I got walloped by a bout of major pity party. My anxiety has been a thousand times better ever since I had that epiphany, but I've just had a lot of crap on my mind lately. A lot of people around me seem to be having relationship ... Read more

Tired, but Better

I was venting in my last blog. I don't think one episode of bad PMS is enough to run to the doctor for, but I will address it during my annual which should be in the next few weeks. I will not be going back on birth control, it gives me high blo... Read more
Being a Woman is Stupid Sometimes

My PMS is ridiculous this month. RIDICULOUS. My mood swings are so bad I'm giving myself whiplash. I go from being angry about something, to sobbing for no reason, to being calm and mostly fine within minutes. I am feeling INCREDIBLY insecure ab... Read more

I AM Maintaining plus Running Alternative Workout Plan
Wednesday, July 08, 2015      11 comments

So I've been writing that I've been "maintaining". In quotes. My "panic weight" was 175, up 15 lbs from from my goal of 160. I've never weighed in at 175 or more since I hit goal. In fact, I've managed to stay between 165 and 175 since October. ... Read more

I tried to run a 5K this morning and ran for less than 3 minutes before I stopped. My left foot immediately started hurting. I think I may have a metatarsal stress fracture. Boo. So I'm going to pause my running for a few weeks so I'm able to do... Read more
I'm Here, I Swear!
Sunday, July 05, 2015      6 comments

I have had a very busy week. I almost wrote drama filled, but in all honesty none of the drama was mine. I'm rife with PMS, though. It's like I want to murder anyone I spend more than 10 minutes with. I told my husband today that I would strangl... Read more
Busy Weekend

Sunday was the Mini Mega Adoption Event for the Animal Adoption Center (the animal shelter where I volunteer). I arrived at the shelter at 9:30 AM where I got lucky enough to "claim" little 5-month-old Blondie. Here she is napping on a blanket w... Read more
