Getting My Money's Worth"
Thursday, May 05, 2011      6 comments

Does trying to 'get your money's worth' ever make you do things that in retrospect are totally illogical? I'm sitting here in a pair of pants that I quite proudly messaged my sp buddy BETTERJULIA about last Thursday because they kept fallin... Read more
How Far Second Should the Rest of My Life Come?
Wednesday, May 04, 2011      8 comments

I'm well aware of my own personal truth when it comes to successfully getting in better shape, eating better, and hopefully losing weight: I have to move that priority up to first on my list or I'll never get to it! But lately I've been fe... Read more
Re-learning from the Same Mistakes (at least one more time)
Tuesday, May 03, 2011      7 comments

So while I've been feeling pretty cool about wearing my size 16 jeans, even after drying them all the way in the dryer, I didn't consider the change in size "official" until Sunday. I mean, I've been wearing these jeans even though they were to... Read more

Eff the Scale!!
Thursday, April 28, 2011      12 comments

Ha! I knew my scale was a big fat liar and not worth my time!!! Yesterday was the 27th, my new monthly weigh in date, but I had to get up 2 hours earlier than normal and my brain wasn't nearly active enough at that time to remember the scale,... Read more
Pollen: I Think We Should "Just Be Friends."
Wednesday, April 27, 2011      2 comments

Wearing contacts has been a NIGHTMARE for me for the first time ever this spring. I've been wearing contacts nearly every day for the last 10 or 11 years. As an irresponsible teenager I often even slept in them and left them in for days up to ... Read more

Tuesday, April 26, 2011      3 comments

I don't know why, really, but that's what I was thinking about in the shower this morning. I got this cool new shampoo that helps bring out the red highlights in my naturally strawberry blonde hair, and since it has to sit for 2 minutes before ... Read more
Did Pretty Okay
Monday, April 25, 2011      2 comments

Well, for a busy and sometimes stressful handful of days centered around food, I'd say I did pretty okay. Not, you know, fantastic or anything to write home about, but not really terrible either. And I'm okay with okay! Too much stress an... Read more
I Couldn't Help Myself...
Wednesday, April 20, 2011      3 comments

Ha! It was just too funny to not add here! And I'll bet you thought I was going to talk about some kind of brownie or snack or something from the title, didn't you? Mu... Read more

Tuesday, April 19, 2011      5 comments

Believe it or not, that's me!! That's the end of summer 2004, the last time I felt really great about my body. I certainly wasn't at my thinnest, or lightest, or most in sh... Read more

Not in like a "screw this I do what I want!" stuff my face and lay on the couch way, don't worry!!! In a, sometimes it's okay to change my plans kinda way. And it is, and I just need to get over all the messy control issues around it and g... Read more

There it is! Photo evidence of how hard I worked out last night! Not to worry, it doesn't hurt. I didn't even notice I had it until dear BF started poking it on the cou... Read more

That's right, spicy chocolate covered bacon. You read it right! Bestie was able to come for her Wednesday visit with the wee baby niecelet for the first time in like a month yesterday. We met in college in Santa Cruz and both feel in love wi... Read more
I Just Kept Telling Myself I COULD... And I DID!
Wednesday, April 13, 2011      7 comments

I went to RIPPED at the gym last night even though Blobby McFlabface was in fine form with about 9000 excuses to skip it. "You've only had one rest day after exercising 7 days last week, you're sore!" "You're still tired from not really s... Read more
