Good news, Bad news

Tuesday, March 25, 2014      1 comments

Usually I'm complaining that my work schedule is insane, that I'm wearing myself too thin, and that I don't have time to workout. All of that is still true, however, there is good news. Now that my new insurance kicked in, I finally got a ... Read more

I am a failure

Wednesday, February 05, 2014      3 comments

OK. So the title is a little misleading, but I am a failure - a foster failure. After the first two kittens of the four I was fostering got adopted, I got busy with all of my other activities and work so I was unable to take them to adoption eve... Read more

There have been very few times....

Monday, January 13, 2014      3 comments

that I've been completely ashamed of my weight. I know I'm fat. I know I've been fat for awhile, but there are only a handful of times where how I look has made me feel like less of a person. Saturday was one of those days. Let's backtrack.... Read more

[Not] Slowing Down

Wednesday, December 11, 2013      2 comments

For once, I'm not going to whine, although whining is something I do quite well. Simply, the office is still a train wreck, the job prospects are slim, the NPO work is exhausting and retail sucks. NPO Projects: re-writing/re-designin... Read more

I think life doesn't want me to be healthy

Monday, October 07, 2013      2 comments

As soon as my schedule starts to clear, more things get piled on. I tried to take a couple of weeks to come down from the big event I planned, but I continued to get slammed. The president's father-in-law passed away the morning after th... Read more

It's finally over

Monday, August 26, 2013      0 comments

Last night was the fundraising gala that has monopolized the last six weeks of my life. I didn't eat as horribly as I could have (I didn't eat well either) and I didn't work out once (I also hardly slept because of the massive amounts of work i... Read more

My Favorite Trade

Tuesday, July 23, 2013      1 comments

I don't even want to talk about the disasters that were my interviews - especially the one that was scheduled for yesterday. Instead, I'm going to share my absolute favorite trade. For as long as I can remember, I've loved brown sugar cinn... Read more

Every Frickin' Time

Friday, July 19, 2013      0 comments

I finally thought I had gotten myself a bit of a work-life balance. After my last entry I decided to make working out more of a priority. It looked like my schedule was actually clearing up a bit for the next couple of months and I thought tha... Read more

I think there comes a time (this is going to be long)...

Thursday, June 20, 2013      3 comments

When we all need to re-evaluate our lives and figure out where we're going and what we're doing. For the last three years, my job has given me some of the most amazing experiences. I've interviewed athletes, mingled with politicians, and g... Read more

Since my last update

Monday, December 31, 2012      1 comments

When I updated (about a year ago - man I'm bad at this), I was talking about how working two jobs was killing me and I needed to get myself back on track. It never quite worked. I came to the conclusion that as long as I was doing retail plus ... Read more

Accountability

Friday, January 20, 2012      1 comments

I'll be the first to admit it - the last few months have been awful for me, at least fitness-wise. I had been doing well for a few months. I had cut out soda and had myself down to eating junk food (french fries) once a week. Sunday was m... Read more

How I Got Here...

Thursday, October 20, 2011      1 comments

Thanks to Josh's complete honesty about how he got where he was, I feel inspired to do the same. How and why I got to where I was and why I end up never making it to my final goal. It'll be personal, and probably not something I want the entir... Read more

January, October, What's the difference?

Tuesday, October 04, 2011      3 comments

My last blog entry was in January and talked about "The Year". The Year never quite happened. Shauna moved again, I got stressed at work, we both had way too much going on personally, and it all just fell apart. I'd love to say that we needed... Read more

Here we go again...

Tuesday, January 04, 2011      1 comments

I have a huge problem with consistency. I start, I do well, I get distracted by something shiny and I stop. Rinse. Repeat. So, now that I'm 30 (blech), Shauna and I have decided to make 30 "The Year" and really get our butts into gear. ... Read more

It doesn't seem to get easier...

Thursday, March 12, 2009      2 comments

I am the worst when it comes to this whole getting on a schedule and sticking to it thing. I'll do fantastic for a couple of weeks and then completely stop for months at a time. There was a time where for a few months I was doing excellent (bu... Read more
