This week is teacher appreciation week. It's nice to be appreciated, but I don't like how we are appreciated with food. That doesn't make me feel appreciated and just makes me feel awkward and stressed out as I choose to say no to all of the f... Read more

Wednesday, May 01, 2013      7 comments

So I took a break from SparkPeople, ok so 9.5 months isn't really a break, I guess I quit (and the time frame might make you think it was due to a baby, but nope). I didn't just quick on SP, I quit on myself. ... Read more

Finally, a blog post after 9 months
Sunday, February 19, 2012      1 comments

You'd think a 9 month break from blogs would mean I had a baby or something. Nope. I just stopped for some reason. Sad truth is that I got lazy and gained back all of the weight I'd lost and then some. This month had me weighing in at a reco... Read more
