Stop. Then wiggle it!

I’ve been bouncing around all morning, an unleashed ball of energy. It’s fantastic!There’s so much to do! I’ve got engineering assignments, lab reports, two exams to prepare for, laundry, this week’s lunch to make and grocery shopping!GAH!So, I reminded myself to STOP. Stop thinking about all the cray-cray crap that’s gotta get done. Screw the deadlines. Forget about everyone who wants you to do them a favor. Take a minute to just…

Sexy Fluffy

BLAM!I’ve hit a plateau. So obvi…I feel fat. TOM is visiting, so I’m bloated on top of all this weight-loss business and feel the intense need to cry. Shameful, right? Ladies, I know you know what I mean. Gentlemen…it’s really is like shark week, but sometimes not even chocolate and kind words are going to save your butts. FYI.Anyhow…I’m feeling FAT. No, not PHAT. FAT. Hefty. LARGE. Giant. As tall as I am…

Jugs & Milkshakes

Quite the predicament, no? You know the one. It’s this wonderful frothy mixture that you know must have been sent down to us from Zeus in a spontaneous moment of insane kindness for us mere mortals. Mortals with a serious weakness for sweet decadence. [Yes, the apple has come full circle.] Chocolate, strawberry, butterscotch, vanilla creme….there are so many splendid flavor combinations to indulge those cravings and well – who doesn’t love sipping…

How Many Licks?

Listen to this, ya’ll! I think I’m finally over the “ooh-I-can-totes-snarf-down-another-frappuccino” to make it through my day. Those cravings. Yeah – you have them too! Don’t lie.Don’t get me wrong, usually I want a salad or veggies more than anything else. My coffee habit (albeit something FIERCE) is usually no more than a cup a day and less than 200 calories, if I mosey my derriere down to Starbucks. All…

Great Starts

This past week, I lost my voice. By Saturday afternoon, I had a fever + chills and absolutely NO love for running. Oh! Everything I tried to eat had no flavor, almost like licking air. Weird, huh? Darn sickly tastebuds.Now it’s Monday and I’m not feeling too much better. Hoping to force myself back into top-notch mode, I’ve endeavored to stay busy. Well, as busy as one can be with practically…

Hit It Before You Quit It!

Pay attention kiddies. Life lessons here. So, I went all dark and twisty on you guys a few weeks back when I got my rejection letter from graduate school. Missed that entry? Here ya go –> Serious Venting What did I do?  Well, after removing my head from my own fantastically shaped derriere and getting over the “woe is me” attitude – I put stock in what a few of…

Goals

I managed to sleep most of my day away because of a migraine that decided to assault me this afternoon. Jerk!My dreams during that blissful [4 hour] nap were…wonderful. It was like my whole year unfolded and things clicked into place. Maybe the migraine was strangling just the right neurons. Maybe. Regardless of the cause, I now know what I want to do:1. Lose 50 pounds by April 23. – This is…

Panties & Prologues

I dropped two more pounds this week.  Work it, ya’ll! Woo-freaking-HOO! Only a few more pounds before these panties start sliding their way down my fabulous derrier. Which, I might add, never seems to lose its shape. Does anyone else have that problem? I guess it’s not really a problem, except when you’re in between sizes and the skinny cow pulling your jeans off the rack can’t seem to understand…

Andy, The Whale

My work family lost a friend and leader today. I lost a mentor. When the news was broken to us, I felt a little piece of me break. It was a distinct sound. One of loss, shock and this cavernous piece of my soul closing off. Not with a bang, but a whimper. I think it’s hard enough to say good-bye when you know the event is coming, but we were…

Cheeky, Short and Brunette – Now What?

So, let me tell you what’s really going on.   Lately I’ve been a little more fierce and a little less friendly, which is most definitely NOT me. I’ve kept alot of these back-the-heck-up thoughts to myself lately because I’m stressed, freaked and have been waiting on rusty old nails to find out whether or not I’d been admitted to graduate school.For all that worrying and feeling like I might…
