Long time no blog. Long time no waist either! I took some measurements for the start of BLC13 - GO CAMO! - & learned I've gained 2" on my waist since last July. No wonder my pants are tight! Truth be told, I miss it. I've got a stra... Read more

I'm in one heck of a downward spiral. Have been for months & yes, I'm blaming it on the new job I got in November. How have I been coping with the stress? Eating! & lots of it! I'm an optimist, but for all the positivity I kept conjuring up... Read more

I left work angry, frazzled & frustrated. My eyes were strained & burning all day because of the endless spreadsheets I look at. Many of my friends were in downer moods (& for some, some very good reasons why!), & the hours dragged on. Th... Read more
