Hello ghosts and goblins! Happy October (9 days late) to you! I actually planned on writing this post for the last week but all my dumb responsibilities and commitments got in the way. New month, new goals, new focus. September was kind of a mess for me. I completed my 100 mile running challenge and … Continue reading Falling Leaves
There is a book I read to my daughter sometimes called, "The Most Magnificent Thing." The gist is there is a little girl who decides she is going to build the most magnificent thing, but each time she tries, it's not quite perfect and she gets more and more frustrated. Finally she explodes because it … Continue reading The Most Magnificent Thing
We've had a bumpy few days around the ol' homestead. Our oldest human we created started Pre-K last week. She marched in with intention and excitement. She has since developed the shortest fuse ever for the stupidest people (her parents) she's ever met. The big change of leaving her cozy and comfortable daycare environment that … Continue reading Change Management
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
