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…

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…
