If You're Having Girl Problems, I Feel Bad For Ya Son
I am not a normal female human in many respects, but one in particular is that I don't really have periods very often, so when I do I am completely befuddled. I *JUST* figured out why I've been (seemingly) powerless against junk food whims and w... Read more

Nerd Alert! (AKA Driving Myself Nuts With The Garmin)
I got this fancy Garmin for Christmas, and it has all sorts of bells and whistles on it. I had a Fitbit for years and would obsess over my steps but now I have a whole new set of numbers to obsess over.
Heh. Maybe this is not a good thing.... Read more
So Far, So Good. Heh. It's Day 5.
I'm feeling pretty good so far this year! In the middle of day 5. Ha!
I cooked/prepped a bunch of healthy food on the 30th, knowing that new year's eve would be crazy and then I needed to hit the ground running on the 1st. And I have. I di... Read more
Double Tracking. Oops!
I got a new Garmin for Christmas, and I've been wearing both it and my FitBit to compare how they measure things. They each have their pros and cons, but I think I'm going to stick with the Garmin for the most part.

The Elusive 20 Pound Mark
Seriously, I don't think it's ever going to get here.

Cherry Blossom 10-Miler. GAAAHHHH! WHEEEEE!
I signed up for the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler lottery. I truly was torn between hoping I made it in because it would force me to train over the winter and hoping I didn't make it in because OMG WHO DOES THIS?

I can't decide if the title of this is because the scale itself is psychotic, or if it's that the scale is making ME psychotic.
I'm back to obsessively weighing every day, because I am crazy. After that mysterious 2.5 pound gain last week ... Read more
I Never Learn

New (Snarky) Motivational Signs!
A while ago, I put up motivational signs around the house. A combination of serious and funny. Case in point: "You don't get the ass you want by sitting on it" next to "This is your reminder that you are amazing and can do anything."

Motto: Plateau Early, Plateau Often
OK, so that's a terrible motto. But it's reality.
However, PLATEAU FINALLY FREAKING BROKEN. For now.
