I haven't been doing too great the past couple of weeks. I didn't just say "screw it" and eat what I wanted for every meal, but I didn't stick closely to my plan, exercise, or track my food. I went to the nutritionist last week and I hadn't lo... Read more

I went to the weight loss doctor last week. I had only lost 2 pounds in a whole month! I know, I know, I should be happy that I lost and did not gain. And I am. But when your goal is 1-2 pounds a week, losing 2 pounds in a month is not exact... Read more

I've had a kind of blah week this week. There hasn't been much sunshine in Charlotte. I haven't had much work to do to keep me busy. It's that time of the month so I feel crappy. I skipped exercising on Monday and Tuesday and haven't been doin... Read more

Flying High and I never thought I'd miss exercise!
Wednesday, September 14, 2011      0 comments

I recently attended and was a bridesmaid in a wedding in NY. It was my first time flying since I was about 14 years old and I was very concerned, not because I was afraid we'd crash, or anything like that, but I was terrified of being mortified... Read more

I just got a new Wii game I ordered "Just Dance 2". I played it at a party once and we had so much fun I had to get it for myself. The great part is that the point is to have fun, not necessarily to lose weight and get toned, like some other g... Read more

Did you know that there's a category beyond morbidly obese? I mean, what's worse than being so fat you've pretty much got one foot in the grave? I discovered the other day that there's a category called "super obese" and I'm in it. While it's... Read more

Studying for the bar exam sucks. But you know what I bet sucks even more than studying for it? Taking it. Just picture it... 2 6 hour days worth of questions about the minutia of law. Hey, I'm supposedly a lawyer and I can't even stand it! ... Read more
