My Car of the Rollercoaster Called Life is Climbing the Hill
Tuesday, January 26, 2016      11 comments

Life is a rollercoaster. You have ups and downs. Nothing lasts forever: not the good times nor the bad. This is comforting to me. I'm feeling a lot better today. The sun is shining and despite the giant piles of snow outside it's a really ... Read more
I'm Tired of All of This
Thursday, January 21, 2016      18 comments

Not you guys. Not working out. Not eating healthy. I'm tired of feeling lost and sad. I've been depressed. No I don't need medication, it's situational. Things at home aren't bad, per se, but they aren't great. I'm unhappy. My husband has done n... Read more
Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016
Thursday, December 31, 2015      14 comments

It's 9 PM on New Years Eve and I'm pretty tired, but I figured I owed you all a blog. The last 2 weeks have been a whirlwind at work. The good news is I've hired 2 new employees, one of which has already started and seems to be working out... Read more
Latkes, donuts, chocolate chips, ugh
Friday, December 18, 2015      11 comments

I'm in a much better state emotionally this week. Things still aren't great at home, but they're better. My eating, however, has been terrible. Sunday night was my boss's annual latke party. The previous week I had an accurate 4300 calorie... Read more
Some serious thoughts and some good news
Friday, December 11, 2015      16 comments

I've had a lot of stuff on my mind lately. A lot. Most of it is entirely too personal for even ME to share here, and if you've known me long enough you know I share a lot. But I'm going through a bit of a transitional period in my life. I'll be ... Read more
Oh hey guess who's a weekly blogger apparently?
Monday, November 30, 2015      10 comments

This blog will be rather disjointed. I survived Black Friday. It was dead at work. Small Business Saturday was much much better. Saleswoman is still here and still having hissyfits. Interviewing someone on Weds, keep your fingers crossed f... Read more
Wow, it's been more than a week?
Monday, November 23, 2015      11 comments

I'm sitting here at my desktop, sipping my Melitta Hazelnut Creme coffee with cashew milk, listening to Core, a podcast about the Blizzard game Heroes of the Storm, which I don't even play, and don't plan to play. Why do I enjoy listening to pod... Read more
Not a Whole Lot to Say
Saturday, November 14, 2015      8 comments

I've worked out 6 days a week 3 out of the last 4 weeks, and the 4th week I had 5 workouts. So that's good. My reduced carb diet is going well, despite last night's random binge. Binges have been much better, so one bad one isn't too bad in my o... Read more

So I wanted to be able to come here and tell you all that we hired two new people and they're great and SALESLADY is on her way out. Well, we hired two people. Julie is GREAT. She's seasonal. Marsha was also picking things up fine. She was suppo... Read more

The Word of the Weekend is SHOPPING
Sunday, October 25, 2015      13 comments

Yesterday morning started out kind of low key. The Hubs had taken the day off from work so I left Bingley at home with him and headed to work, making sure to grab a delicious French Vanilla mixed with Hazelnut coffee for only $1 from Wawa. I nev... Read more
Insecurities
Friday, October 23, 2015      13 comments

What is it about our brains that cause us to feel insecure even when we logically know we have nothing to be insecure about? I've been feeling insecure lately. Not good enough. And I think I may have pinpointed why. Are you ready for this? ... Read more
Out of the Funk and Back Again
Tuesday, October 20, 2015      14 comments

I had a couple of good days. Nothing bad really happening. I was exhausted on Sunday and Monday (my weekend) and slept in until 7:30 on Monday I was so wiped. Well I guess I got caught up on my sleep because last night I slept like crap. I had t... Read more

Reduced Carb Days 7-10
Tuesday, October 13, 2015      8 comments

Day 7 - Saturday Friday I ran out of cottage cheese, so I subbed in Greek yogurt. I was much hungrier on Saturday due to this, and it sucked! I a) never knew I'd LIKE cottage cheese and b) never thought the difference in satiety between the tw... Read more
