I really don't know what I am thinking/feeling right now. I found out today that the fire had been arson! Someone had broke a hole in a back door at the back of the building and threw accelerate in and lit it. I just can't understand why some... Read more

This morning everything seemed fine. Better than fine, actually. I started my morning with a 1.5 mile run then had some fresh fruit and granola for breakfast. I got the kids out of the door on time and easily got them to school a few minutes ... Read more

My body is going crazy. I know I haven't been treating it right. My whole "love myself" campaign has been all mental and has not translated into the physical again. Until now. Since the beginning of the year I have gained 15 pounds and prett... Read more

Thursday, August 11, 2011      1 comments

Yesterday, I read a very disturbing article on AOL. It was about how processed meats greatly increase the risk of cancer. This was not something new, I have heard about the link between hot dogs and cancer for years. I always shrugged it off ... Read more

I spent most of my life apologizing for existing. Even as a child, I did not feel like I deserved to be important to anyone. I would work hard on my grades, practice long hours to make the cheerleading squad, work for hours on a poem or short ... Read more

I have a love-hate relationship with myself. At the end of last year, I was so happy with myself. I had lost 65 pounds and felt really good about myself. I loved the way I looked in my just-slightly-tight size 16s and XL tops. I could even w... Read more

The past two nights I have gone to Zumba. I love it! So what if I don't have a lot of rhythm and don't know the steps? I was a cheerleader from 4th grade through my junior year and it was never easy for me. It always seem to take me longer t... Read more

It's Monday. What can I say? I woke up feeling sick and still don't feel well. I am drained even though I got 8 hours sleep last night. I ruined a new streak I started yesterday of exercising every day. Maybe I will feel up to walking this ... Read more
