I've Tried Nothing, and I'm All Out of Ideas!
Wednesday, January 13, 2021      12 comments

I titled this blog thusly, because I'm self-aware enough to know that what you are about to read is a bunch of excuses. They do feel insurmountable to me, however, so I'd love some input as to overcome them. I got rid of my gym membership, ... Read more
What You Focus On Matters

I, like many people, have been glued to the news after the events on January 6. My emotions are all over the place with it. I work in Washington, and I'm disgusted by what I see, and every day, it looks even worse. I think I'm in shock to an ext... Read more

First, I want to say that my Christmas was EXACTLY what I imagined. It was perfect, except we had to watch "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," and it's SO BAD. I could write an essay on all the things I hate about that movie, so of course, my son ... Read more
Surprisingly Stoked for Christmas Eve

This year sure has been...special. There hasn't been much to look forward to, nor much to look back on. When people ask me what I've been up to, it's like, uh...Judge Judy and online shopping. What else? I'm not going anywhere. I'm not doi... Read more

I'm really glad I have started blogging more frequently again. It has helped with feeling accountable and making better decisions. I would like some of your suggestions for solutions on a problem I'm having, though. My brain is...brok... Read more
A Follow-Up to Yesterday
Wednesday, December 09, 2020      5 comments

First, I feel like I need to say that I have no intention of remaining this prolific for the long-haul. I just have a lot to say after a year, but I'm sure that after only a short while, I will run out. And then I won't have time to blog some da... Read more
Always on My Mind

When I wake up, my first thought is how today I'm going to do what I need to do to lose weight. When I get dressed, I am reminded by my tight clothes how very far I've let myself go. Every time I walk around, I'm focused on my fallen arches and ... Read more
I Am Here
Monday, December 07, 2020      12 comments

I haven't blogged in a year. That's so weird, but maybe not really. I find it completely unsurprising that I have had little to say about weight loss and health in the last year. I'm at a new highest weight. I know what happened. It st... Read more
Get Excited!

I had an NSV earlier this week. My coworker brought Panera bagels for everyone. I dutifully spread the word on my floor, but I didn't go to the kitchen to partake. I love Asiago bagels. Panera has them. They might have been in the kitchen, but I... Read more
Goodbye, July!
Wednesday, July 31, 2019      11 comments

I seriously cannot wait to say goodbye to this stupid month. It has been one of the worst months of my entire life, if not the worst one. Definitely top 10. Or bottom 10? Top Ten Worst Months of My Life, or Bottom Ten Months of My Life. Is... Read more
Because Losing 30 Pounds Isn't a Priority for Me
Tuesday, July 30, 2019      13 comments

Today, I was perusing the getdisciplined subreddit. Someone had posted a request for advice for getting past procrastination. They said when they are out with friends, they feel very motivated and anxious to start their projects, but when they g... Read more
Holding Your Mouth Right
Friday, March 15, 2019      11 comments

In the annals of folksy, old-fashioned slang, right between calling someone a "good egg" and saying you'll be back "in a jiffy," there lies the delightful phrase, "hold your mouth right." It's something oldsters (myself included) say when someth... Read more
Daycare Drama and Making It Work
Friday, February 15, 2019      11 comments

When I was looking at daycares, I wanted one that closes at 6. I get off work at 4 everyday, but I wanted the time to go to the gym, run an errand, or just sit somewhere quietly, like at the library or the Burger King. I first started going... Read more

I have been sitting on three blogs in my head for kind of awhile. I finally decided yesterday to sit down and start pounding them out, if for no other reason than to get them out of my head, into the universe, and then I can spend another six mo... Read more
Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Some Thoughts On Mindfulness
Monday, January 28, 2019      22 comments

One thing I've noticed since I've had a baby is how my perspective of my own childhood has changed. Not in the overall sense, but I seem to recollect memories that I hadn't thought about in a lot of years. Oddly, it's not like my baby is of an a... Read more
