Yes I'm back on the fitness track. And I'm almost back on the healthy eating track, too. I overate healthy food yesterday. I sort of bombed the end of the Spring Challenge, apologies to my Rowdy Rebels. I plan to rejoin you at the end of t... Read more

I am going through a period of depression. This is not surprising considering all I'm going through right now. I have spent so much of the last 72 hours crying and trying to figure out my life. The good news is when I'm crying I don't eat. Today... Read more
Venting
Saturday, May 20, 2017      13 comments

I'm sitting here at my desk after just having spoken to my mom. This is the first time I've mentioned any problems with my husband to her. As I expected, she handled the situation in the most pragmatic way possible. I've got so much flying... Read more
New Workout Plan
Wednesday, May 17, 2017      10 comments

I have a tendency to take on way too many projects at once and overwhelm myself. I've been working out 6 days a week with an active Sunday for a couple of years now, so it's time to change it up for sure. I'm going to maintain the amount of calo... Read more
Therapy and Protein Powder
Wednesday, May 10, 2017      15 comments

I love my therapist. I found a Groupon for the website BetterHelp.com that gave me 2 months of unlimited messaging counseling for $99, and I figured at that price I'd give it a shot. The first counselor I was assigned was an idiot, so I switched... Read more

The PMS is super bad this month. No tears today but I am SO DOWN. It lies to me and tells me I don't matter to anyone. My anxiety is ramped up too, and my chest feels like a big hole that can't be filled. I KNOW it's PMS. But it still sucks. The... Read more
