They always kick in when I'm sleepy and sore. My RA is being a beast today (it's been raining for hours). I decided I'm not ready to totally give up my crutch and my coach and therapist agree... but I am only eating the good stuff, and that's a ... Read more

I made it back from my visit to Fort Myers, FL and am actually down a half a pound. I tried to squeeze in exercise and since I was staying with family, couldn't snack throughout the evening like I would if I were alone. I got to indulge in... Read more

I’m visiting family this week and I love them so much but I’m also having a lot of complex feelings about aspects of my upbringing and how it set the stage for an adulthood of insecurity and approval-seeking and all I want to do is eat my feelin... Read more

Do you guys like crying as much as I do? This movie was the perfect end to my girly self-care day. Cuddled up with my mint tea and my dog, I allowed myself to get sucked in to a movie. I'm used to multitasking with Candy Crush and an overf... Read more

He's out of town, using his vacation time to assist his brother with a cross-country move. Honestly, that tells you everything you need to know about the man. He is just so honorable and thoughtful and kind. Such a huge part of my suc... Read more
Taking control of my image
Tuesday, January 21, 2020      4 comments

My (so far, slight) weight loss has inspired me to take control of my image. I may be doing some more fundraising and networking for my work and feeling frumpy is not going to get the job done. I've never really loved how I've looked, but I... Read more

A new location was opened in Center City, Philadelphia a few months back. I never considered it before that because the closet one was by the scary Walmart with all the parking lot seagulls and the row of strip clubs (oh, the glory of living in ... Read more

I'm watching some guilty pleasure tv and was thinking about what it takes to be prepared for an emergency. I've watched 4 episodes of "Doomsday Preppers" today ( while folding laundry and otherwise adulting) and while I'm not going to buy 200 po... Read more
Pour some sugar on me

"Splenda" and "monkfruit" don't have the same ring to them, do they? Sweets have always been a struggle, especially because my anxiety and health struggles create a "treat yo' self" mentality and it's the cheapest, most readily available wa... Read more

I had two girl friends visit from Michigan this weekend and together we took in all Philly had to offer. This included Reading Terminal Market and BYOB at the improv club. I haven't built the food tracking habit yet, but I know enough to know it... Read more

I don't want to be one of those spouses who starts a blog post off with "I love my husband but...", so I will say this... That man works incredibly hard. So hard that we are able to cashflow my graduate program and I can pursue my passions ... Read more
