My Biggest Successes (MFP Posting 07/21/2020)
Thursday, September 24, 2020      3 comments

Well, I think I've procrastinated from writing long enough. It's amusing how the mood ebbs and flows. I feel like I used to be so empassioned to write, that there were days when I absolutely had to get the words juggling around in my head out th... Read more
Quarantine Reflection (MFP Reposting 06/29/2020)
Wednesday, July 22, 2020      8 comments

I'm so sorry for my absence. I'll be honest - this self-quarantine and pandemic has been psychologically and emotionally rough for me. In addition, I did end up gaining some weight, so that also isn't helping my mental state either. But I am sti... Read more
Changes
Friday, May 01, 2020      3 comments

Yesterday, I had a conversation with the landlord. We had started discussions about renewing the lease on the townhome that I call home back in February of this year; as I think back to February of this year, all I can think of is, "That feels l... Read more
One Year Anniversary
Wednesday, April 22, 2020      6 comments

On April 15, 2019, I logged my weight of 185.8. That had been the first time in nearly 5 years that I had touched that weight, the line for a 5'6" woman from being Obese to being Overweight according to the BMI. I had touched that weight several... Read more
Quarantine
Thursday, April 02, 2020      6 comments

I've honestly been avoiding posting a blog. I don't really have words anymore for this year. I keep hoping to wake up tomorrow and find out I accidentally got character swapped for a boring NPC in an apocalypse game or movie or something. I... Read more
Where I have been
Wednesday, March 11, 2020      5 comments

I haven't posted in quite a while, not because the thought didn't occasionally strike me, but because I've been struggling against the same damned cold/flu/whatever I caught January 20th of this year. It started with a fever, lapsed into a week ... Read more
It's Not about the Mirror
Tuesday, February 11, 2020      3 comments

On MLK Day, I ended up with a fever - shivering and feeling that horrible start to a sore throat. It's damn near been a month since that day, and still, I wake up congested and absolutely dead tired, even though I've slept well. I'm not sure if ... Read more
The Groundhog Day Diet
Monday, February 03, 2020      7 comments

Happy Groundhog Day! For those outside of the US, you might wonder what the blankity blank I'm talking about. In short, it's a goofy little day when a town in Pennsylvania "consults" with a groundhog about how much winter is left. It's silly, it... Read more
Old Eating Habits - A Treat for Every Meal
Tuesday, January 14, 2020      2 comments

I felt the urge to write, but the topic was evading me - until I realized, you know what I haven't done since last year? Old Eating Habits! What a better topic to discuss in January, the time where you've made New Year's Resolutions and are rese... Read more
Overthrowing a Lifetime in a Week
Thursday, January 09, 2020      4 comments

I have an Apple Watch. The Watch in trying to encourage one in one's health goals gave me two goals for January: one was specialized for me and one was universal. The Universal one called "Ring in the New Year" was this: to get all three of your... Read more
Yet Another New Year's Post
Friday, January 03, 2020      3 comments

This time of year is always a bit of a weird one, I find. I love the holidays; Christmas is hands down my favorite holiday of the year. But the moment the packages are open, the meal eaten, the carols sung, the very next day after Christmas even... Read more
2020 - Vision of the Future
Thursday, January 02, 2020      2 comments

Welcome to 2020, where I'm already sick to death of the vision and Barbara Walters' jokes! Has it really been 20 years since we all freaked out that the world would collapse under Y2K?! Does that age me more than I already am? I have been s... Read more
The Best Holiday Treat
Friday, December 20, 2019      7 comments

Happy Friday before the holidays! (We've got Solstice, Hanukkah AND Christmas lined up boom-boom-boom this year!) The Christmas cards are out. The presents have been bought (not wrapped yet, but fortunately I am only buying for 4 people and... Read more
Introvert or Extrovert?
Wednesday, December 18, 2019      3 comments

For the longest time (before my roommate when I lived alone), I considered myself an introvert. I read Susan Cain's "Quiet" and nodded in agreement at all the attributes of introverts: (Using Psychology Today's list) https://www.... Read more
Getting through the holiday season
Monday, December 16, 2019      7 comments

I've tried to write a new blog post at least once since December started. I honestly had no idea where to begin - do I want to talk about how I feel or what's going on or some generic topic? I still don't really know where this post will go... Read more
