Under The Weather…

Hi, guys! Just dropping in to apologize for yesterday (and quite possibly tomorrow). I was unable to post due to feeling a bit out of sorts. A sudden change in the weather has really messed me up; it’s not uncommon for me to get sick during season transitions.

There Were Calories Aplenty… And Cheesecake.

Hi, guys! A most happy Monday to you all. I hope you had a great weekend. 

If you’re a mom, happy belated Mother’s Day! And if not, I hope the special women in your life who are mothers had a beautiful Mother’s Day as well.

As for my mom, she says she had a lovely weekend. I too had an enjoyable weekend, but since I didn’t post, there’s plenty to get you caught up on.

My family and I celebrated Mother’s Day on Saturday in order to avoid the crowds on the actual day. The Cheesecake Factory was my mom’s restaurant of choice, so The Cheesecake Factory is what we had.

But I Thought The Fat Would Just Go Away!

For someone who has essentially been obsessed with losing weight since childhood, I’m surprised by how much I still need to learn about the actual mechanics of weight loss.

I mean, sure– I know about weight loss. Aside from everything I learned in school, I’ve spent years upon years absorbing all kinds of information about the subject. However, it seems as though there was one critical tidbit I completely glossed over: Where fat goes when we lose weight.

It seems as though I learned the answer to this question once upon a time, but had long since forgotten it. Well, I got a wakeup call today, and you know what? I’m absolutely mortified. 😳

Can Watermelon Simply Count As Water?

Today’s post is going to have to be short and sweet, you guys.

As much as I would like to say that I’m in a hurry due to having super important stuff to do (even though I technically do have a to-do list as long as the Wall of China…), I can’t.

However, the Housewives of New York comes on at 9 tonight.

Long story short, I refuse to miss it.

Absolutely Not My Favorite Workout

Today’s workout was, by far, my least favorite. I knew I couldn’t keep avoiding it though.

I shudder to think how I’ll feel tomorrow. 😦

I Am Jealous Of My Cats.

Yes, I’ll admit it. I’m jealous of my two cats.

It’s not that I’m upset over lacking Cam’s beautiful emerald eyes or luscious snow white fur. I don’t covet her feminine grace or sharp intelligence.

I’m not threatened by Chi’s shocking athleticism or adorable face. Heck, I’m not even bothered that he has better social skills than I do.

Even though all of these traits make my sweet pets as lovable as all get out, none of these begin to scratch the surface of why I am so envious of them.

No, I am jealous of my cats because they know how to sleep… and I don’t.

Life As A Tumbleweed

All of my life I have felt out of place, never particularly fitting in with any one crowd and always doing my own thing.

And while I’ve always wished to understand why I felt like such an outcast, it never quite made sense until today.

I… am a tumbleweed.

Round, peculiar, and dry.

Like, really dry.

Betwixt a Rock and a Hard Place

It has been quite awhile since I last found myself in this position, but now that I’m here again, I’m left wondering what I should do.

Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures

Okay, so I know I’ve never been known as the most patient person in the world, but why does this whole weight loss thing have to take so long?

It all seemed so simple to me: eat less calories than you burn, exercise regularly to burn even more calories, and BOOM! Kate Moss.

What do you mean, that’s not how it works? Of course that’s how it works.


My eagerness to see some kind of physical proof of improvement was teetering on the brink of stone cold desperation this morning. I mean, I almost ran back into the traitorous, lying arms of my scale. Fortunately, I came to before stepping on it and destroying my self-esteem for the day.

This morning I looked in the mirror and scowled at my waistline thinking, “Ugh…what a mess! This is not working. But if it is working, it’s working much too slowly.”

I don’t know, you guys. It may be time to call for reinforcements.
