Thursday, April 30, 2015      3 comments

My work is celebrating May the Fourth this year ( working in a graphic design department allows me ample opportunity to "nerd out"). I've decided to dress up as Han Solo. This seems like nothing but previously my thoughts would say " wow, a gend... Read more

Can we get real for a second? You're pretty lame. Want to know how I know that? Because I'm pretty lame too. We sleep eat work and repeat. For years I sat on the couch and asked myself "Where's the glory? W... Read more

WOW. Stuff happened. The following rant is not to justify my absence or lack of progress, if anything I'll be using it as a motivator to fuel the fire. A couple of months ago my boyfriend's mother died unexpectedly at 49. Really tra... Read more

Tracking my eating times yesterday was BRILLIANT! It demonstrated how perfect my eating is up until I get home from work at 8:30, it's like at that point I just give up and stop caring. A couple of missteps last night put me about 300 calories o... Read more
