When Shoes Attack
Friday, April 22, 2011      6 comments

So, I was off from work on Mon & Tue this week for Pesach, which is always fun (especially seeing as how I'm what I refer to as a "bad jew"). During my time off, I decided to tackle my closet - in addition to my hair, as previously shared. ... Read more
Today's Deal: NEW HAIR!
Wednesday, April 20, 2011      4 comments

In today's unrelated to anything news, I don't know how I ever lived without the likes of Groupon, LivingSocial, BuyWithMe, etc... it's the best way to get the house cleaned, car oil changed, handyman services, try new gyms, personal trainers, d... Read more
short-changing myself
Friday, April 08, 2011      7 comments

So, the fact is that I work from 7:30am - 4pm. It really isn't that bad, a 7.5 hour workday (hour for lunch) and a 37.5 hr work week. The problem, however, is that if I'm going to workout, it needs to be BEFORE work. At the end of the day, I j... Read more
A new nickname
Wednesday, March 30, 2011      9 comments

So, as of this morning, I apparently have a new nickname (for lack of a better word) here at work. Before I share that, I want to go into the reasoning behind it. Over the last year or so, I've tried to get my focus on track. I have sta... Read more

So, it's back to the real world now after a fabulous (spa) trip to LA. First, there was the gorgeous Fairmont Miramar Hotel where we had a (semi)PRIVATE BUNGALOW: ... Read more

Confession, with a side of guilt.
Wednesday, February 16, 2011      5 comments

Like many people, I am an emotional eater. I really do love food, but if left to my own devices when upset/stressed/bored/whatever, I will eat. And eat. And then eat some more. Regardless of any hunger that I may or may not actually be feeling.... Read more

Keeping up with the 'During'
Monday, January 17, 2011      8 comments

After sharing the before & during pics last week, that REALLY got me thinking. I'm not really ready to be an 'after' just yet... well, hence the use of the word 'during' I guess. Anyway, I do still have a ways to go. It's just strange the way... Read more
Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Before & During (w/photos)
Friday, January 14, 2011      280 comments

So, I've been thinking about this for a while, but now have the guts to actually share. Someone at work showed me this picture that was taken from our office holiday party in Dec 2007 (so just over 3 years ago). This really scares me, because I... Read more
Another year, another blog entry?
Wednesday, January 05, 2011      3 comments

Well, it seems as though now that 2011 is here, tis the season to share goals for the new year. I see no problem with that, and think it is important. However, it's not exactly my style. I find it too easy to say things (like those well-meanin... Read more
pants are NOT my friend
Thursday, December 09, 2010      5 comments

For some (fairly obvious) reason, pants are not my friends these days. I've had to pull out some "fat" pants this week in order to be fully clothed for work. I don't know that it's really about weight-gain, since I'm still in the same general ... Read more
Growing Up
Thursday, December 02, 2010      2 comments

So, maybe the song is "breaking up is hard to do" but growing up ain't easy either! Yesterday, my parents moved. We had been in that house for 23 1/2 years, and as of yesterday, the house is empty. I called their phone number for the last time... Read more

For the next 4-5 weeks: I cannot spin. I cannot run (not that i like to). I cannot elliptical (is that a verb?). I cannot strength train. I cannot attend crazy-early insane workout classes in the morning. I cannot (well, SHOULD no... Read more
Just Beat (it)
Monday, November 22, 2010      1 comments

So, one week ago today I went into the hospital and had my first surgery. I stayed there for 2 nights, returning home last Wednesday. Not such a bad deal... no pain meds since last Tuesday, and lots of rest. Wednesday & Thursday were spent most... Read more
