I've made the same joke three times this week. When I find one that works, I just keep using it. I'm a 65 year old man. I just keep saying, "I need football season to start so I can be disappointed in something besides politics." It's kind of a joke. But mostly it's true. I'm … Continue reading (Mental) Health Nut.
Y'all. The flipping scale is NOT moving. On more than one occasion when I've climbed on that jerk, I've wanted to tell her where she can go when she gives her report. (I had a real hard time writing that sentence without cuss words. But I'm a lady, so just know that where I want … Continue reading The Scale is No Friend of Mine
Whatever June. What. Ever. June was kind of a bust for me, so I'm closing the door and heading right into the month of America's independence. Good riddance! I'm unsure which topic to address first: the wins or the losses. Both were pretty influential. I'm going to channel my inner 80s sitcom and go gloomy … Continue reading June’s Over? Julying.
I have been in a fight with the scale. I want him to be more flexible, he's a stubborn man who is staying put. And y'all, it is getting more frustrating by the day. The woman pictured above adequately portrays my dismay (and old age). My exercise has been steady and good. The eating has … Continue reading 9/10 of a Dalmatian
I will say this, while the scale is holding firm at 39% approval rating, I do feel like I'm accomplishing something mentally with this running challenge I've put myself up to.
Okay, so May is over, and can I just say covfefe? You know what I mean. Side note, I think I'm going to stop watching the news. All of it. I am choosing to exist in a world with no current affairs updates...gonna add that to the June goals. I promised to be honest with my … Continue reading Mother May I?
I discovered last week that it is difficult to write about being healthy and losing weight when you aren't losing weight. I could have written a "this is all so stupid" blog and "what is the point of any of this?" blog, but I don't think that would help any of us. Instead I whined … Continue reading Keep the Change
Time to check in on my progress, yes? I've been refocused for three whole weeks and I'm 16 days into my May Goals. So this is where we are, and by we I mean me and the inner me who loves salty snacks and being lazy. I'm down 6 pounds in 3 weeks. That was … Continue reading Progress Report
This isn't about fitness. Or weight gain. Or eating healthy. Not directly at least. It's about grief, so really it's about all of those things, I guess. And for the record, I don't understand this picture, but I think it is hysterical. I feel you tomato. I've been there. Give me a call, girl. We … Continue reading The Lonely Instability of Grief
So I did it. Three races in three consecutive weekends. To say I fell short of my initial goals would be a pretty big understatement. But I did end on a high note. Thanks to lots of insight, I laced my shoes differently, wore compression sleeves on my calves, wore thinner socks and stretched my … Continue reading My thoughts are racing
