Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the twilight zone that is my life today, where people who have never had a significant weight problem are full of advice and admonishments. I went to the doctor today for my monthly weigh-in. I managed to... Read more

I have to write fast, because it came to me in the middle of yoga, right before my cat bit me and then jumped on the coffee table to knock over my water glass, and then I got heartburn, so here it is: My mind was whirling during mountain po... Read more

Greetings everyone. I suppose you are wondering where I was yesterday. Well, I'll tell you. A combination of holiday blues, tiredness, hormones, stress, tiredness, did I mention tiredness? pretty much knocked me for a loop. A good bit ... Read more

Monday, December 04, 2017      1 comments

Greetings. I took a break from the program yesterday for two reasons: I had a boatload of cleaning to do, and my husband and cats were being clingy. Also, I'm really trying to prevent injury and burnout. I have completed Day 3 of 21 for t... Read more

Greetings. In today's workout, I attempted to make it through 3 of the 6 HIIT intervals, totaling 20 minutes of aerobic exercise. Observations: 1) This would have been a whole lot easier without a cat underfoot. 2) This would ha... Read more

Greetings. As you may or may not know, I was diagnosed (finally) with asthma last year. In the last few weeks, it has become increasingly difficult to deal with. My medication just barely seems to stave off that tight feeling in the chest... Read more

That's it, really. I've come to the conclusion that that is my natural disposition to be irritable. I've been irritable since I was born, and I'll be irritable until the day I die. And probably a few days after that, just because. My ghost w... Read more

Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. So. If you were looking for something uplifting, or cheerful, or positive, or even anything remotely about weight loss, yeah, you better turn back now. Go watch cartoons or something. I'm about to talk about every... Read more
Squirrel vs Car Alarm, which is not relevant to my interests
Sunday, August 06, 2017      2 comments

I couldn't really think of a snappy title for my blog, so I will dedicate it to the squirrel down the street who is, in turn, dedicated to shattering the suburban Sunday morning peace by chewing on the neighbor's car alarm wires. It is a pity t... Read more

Well, two blood transfusions and five enormous tumors later (three of which that were unexpected), I am finally home from the hospital after my hysterectomy. Strangely, it did not hurt near as much as I thought, mostly because they gave me some... Read more
Bye, Uterus. It was "fun" while it lasted.
Monday, September 19, 2016      9 comments

I'm going to make this quick, mostly because I don't have the energy or attention span to deal with it. I found out last Monday that I have a 9cm tumor perfectly housed in my uterus. Takes up practically the whole thing. Needless to say, it's... Read more

I am so ready to be done. My job is about to drive me over the edge. Correction: it already has. I've been fighting off anxiety and sleeplessness for the past three months. I thought I could deal with it on my own, but my body is telling me ... Read more

I am at the end of my rope with my Specialized Sirrus Sport. It seems that just about every month I am down at the bike shop for something or other. Just since the beginning of the year, I have had to replace the back tire, the cassette, the s... Read more
