I've recently read Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman. I have read it before, and followed the suggestions about six years ago. At the time, I lost about 40 pounds. I am pretty shocked by how good I feel, and it hasn't even been a week. It is ser... Read more
Bronchitis
Monday, November 16, 2020      5 comments

Bronchitis sucks. It's really frustrating to be out of breath all the time! But I am now realizing that I need to put in the work to get my lungs back in shape. Using my inhaler and doing the stairs more often. That's my plan! I don't know how... Read more
Counting my blessings
Sunday, November 15, 2020      2 comments

I grew up in Minnesota, and one thing that I was taught growing up was not to brag! So I really struggle with both confidence in myself and counting my blessings. I'm so blessed, how could that not sound like I'm bragging? But I'm going to give ... Read more

I'm not sure why I'm so excited to hit 329 pounds. I am just happy to not see a number over 330 on the scale! My weight has been in the 320s for a while. When quarantine started, I lost ten pounds. There were a few different reasons. First... Read more

Today is the one month anniversary of my little brother's death. It has been a very difficult month. In fact, I have been thinking about how much has happened this spring, and I can't believe how much my life has changed. Some of the chang... Read more
Day 20
Friday, June 05, 2020      3 comments

It has been 20 days since my little brother died. His funeral was last Tuesday. I suppose at some point, I will quit counting the days. I can't quite help it though. It is still too new. It's still the overwhelming thing in my family. ... Read more
Great Big Rainbow World the Musical
Tuesday, November 05, 2019      1 comments

Last night, I was able to go to a staged reading of Great Big Rainbow World the Musical. It's a lesbian rugby coming-of-age love story, and it's absolutely wonderful. I've been hearing snippets of songs for months, and I was really excited about... Read more
Cholesterol
Monday, November 04, 2019      5 comments

This morning, I opened SparkPeople, and I was quite bothered by what I saw. Before I could get to my content, there was an advertisement for eggs. And it proclaims, "a healthy start to your day!" or something along those lines. Well,... Read more
Behind The Scenes

Wow! I had a great day yesterday working behind the scenes on a movie. Specifically, I helped with craft services, and took behind the scenes photos! It was a LOT of fun. It wasn't as active of a day as I would have liked, and there ... Read more
Motivation?
Wednesday, October 30, 2019      3 comments

The last two days have been really rough for me. I'm not sure what's going on, but I've been really depressed. I've also had headaches. Well, nothing makes me want to move less than a headache! But I feel pretty good today. My headache is ... Read more
Grocery Shopping
Sunday, October 27, 2019      2 comments

I met my step goal today! But I met it exclusively through shopping, which I find to be absolutely exhausting. What is it about shopping that is so much harder on you that walking or hiking? My ankles, feet, and knees are all sore! I... Read more
Meeting my step goal
Thursday, October 24, 2019      2 comments

Every Wednesday, I get an email from fitbit that tells me about my activity for the past week. It lays out every day, and how many steps you had, and your "best day." This week, for the first time, my "best day" didn't meet my step goal. I ... Read more
Job Search
Wednesday, October 23, 2019      9 comments

I'm feeling a lot of stress in looking for a job. I've actually been able to stay pretty calm. I quit my last job without having another job lined up. I thought I would just be able to start temping and find something quickly, but it hasn'... Read more
