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…

Killing the Jiggle

Alright folks, I’m back in action!These past few weeks have been heinous – exams, allergies, strep throat, no work-outs and dealing with Herbert (the Thanksgiving Turkey), mocking me for not eating more. Dastardly bird!I was so freaking disciplined. No. Joke.Every skinny twiglet in my beau’s family was like: But all I could do was sit there and think…How do you stay soooooo thin?!?!?!?! I mean: Twig-bitches. I say that with…

Let’s Get Naked!

Now, I’m not a fan of scales…because, let’s be honest – most of the time their language is painful. They only give out numbers, no “way to go”… “hey, champ – looking slim”… just, “yo – you’re hefty! don’t believe me? Here’s yo numbah!”UGH.So, imagine my surprise when I stopped running for a week due to intense class assignments…and I LOST TWO POUNDS! In one week, that’s fantastic! :] I’m…

Cheater, Cheater

Now, this title reflects a couple of things. 1.  I have been cheating on my running with Halloween candy. Ugh. I’m somewhat ashamed of this weakness, but hey – I’m not perfect and won’t pretend to be. I have set-backs and walls and crazy high standards for myself. I’m much more in shape now than I was a few weeks ago, so I’m not too terribly disappointed, but I did need…

Sex, Sweat and Taboos

My large hispanic family shrinks shudders cringes at the thought of talking anything related to health, fitness, sex, partnerships, politics, love, life, and pretty much any topic with opposing views. But, what can we all agree on?FOOD! <— Click here for some food PRON!That’s right, who would’ve thought that Hispanics are foodies? {eye-roll}Yes, most of us are foodies. Actually, I’ve never met a Latina/Latino who doesn’t practically worship good food (what type…

Slow Your Roll!

I had a very long chat with my bestie last night. Unfortunately, her words stuck with me and very much interfered with my studying/cramming review time. She told me how she worries that I am always too busy to just sit back and enjoy the day. I guess that, for the most part, she’s right. My idea of relaxing is going for a 30 minute run or reading a chapter from…

The Challenge!

It’s over!24 days. Done!Hallelujah! I’ve lost 9 pounds and I am damn proud of myself. So proud, in fact – that I’m purchasing myself a LBD (little black dress – a sexy one, to celebrate our 5 year anniversary in chicness!)Plus, a pair of bootines and an awesome pair of running shoes ::cough, underarmour, cough:: Oh darling, the choices! These booties caught my eye. They come in black and green. Hmmm……

Love your Booty!

Here’s one for you to remember: Pamper yourself! I am always forgetting this. Between work, studying and volunteer work – I tend to put my needs last and all others first. This is the fastest way to run yourself into the ground! AVOID! AVOID! AVOID! I’ve been seriously forgetting to spend any time on myself, especially since I still feel phat. Ugh. Yes, I’m losing weight – but I’m not…
