On Grief and Health

Here is what I have learned about grief thus far. It’s unpredictable.  Unruly.  Some days you will feel joy as normal; others you will experience a profound sadness that you cannot shake.  Those days you may find yourself shedding lots of tears, or making a cup of coffee and settling into the couch with a stack … Continue reading

Loose Ends

I realize I’ve left many loose ends on the old blog of late. First, remember my New Year’s Resolutions? Yeah, me neither. If there is one thing I’ve learned this year, it is this: a woman cannot be expected to set lofty goals for self-improvement when she has a tiny baby/is not sleeping/is dealing with … Continue reading

Weekly Round-Uppiness

I’ve decided it is high time to reinstate the Weekly Round-Up, for a myriad of reasons: I need to keep better track of my workouts. I like talking about myself. My weight is a creeper.  I’m currently sitting at 144.2; and judging by yesterday’s photos, my body is looking about ten pounds heavier than that. … Continue reading

Emotional Eating

I’ve been struggling lately. It’s no secret that I’ve been fairly stressed over here.  This week is spring break; and since my classes for this semester were split into two separate eight-week courses, I don’t really have a whole lot of school work that I can be doing now.  (Of course I ordered my next … Continue reading

Weekly Round-Up: Where Do We Go Now?

Welp, it’s February 18th, and I’ve yet to share with you my February resolutions. Spoiler Alert: I have not done ANY of my February resolutions. And why, you may ask?  In no particular order: my birthday; out-of-town guests; teething; growth spurts; no sleep; finance class; cramming in moments to study; workouts; cooking; Valentine’s Day prep … Continue reading

Weekly Round-Up: Onward.

It’s hard for me to begin this week’s round-up without mentioning how busy we’ve been over here at the Orlando Ranch.  My MIL and SIL and nephew left last Thursday, after a fun-filled week that unfortunately ended with a bout of a stomach bug.  (H, A, and I remain the only men left standing.)  With … Continue reading

Weekly-Round Up: DietBet Fin

I just reread the post I started yesterday. Y’all, I am kind of in a bad way. Here’s the gist: No time. There’s never any time. I don’t have time to study!  I’ll never get into Stamford!  I’ll let everyone down!  I’m so CONFUSED! That’s right, friends.  My life has taken a Jessie Spano shame … Continue reading

Weekly Round-Up: Finance and Teething

My week can be summed up in two words: Finance. Teething. It’s the final week of the DietBet, and Mama’s goal is to avoid the chocolate chips.  Much easier said than done.  Let’s get to it, shall we? Current Weight: 143 Pounds lost since blog’s inception: 19.6 Pounds lost since A’s birth: 47.6 And this … Continue reading

Food Journaling

Yesterday, a Facebook friend mentioned in a status update that she had hit her pre-pregnancy weight. She had her baby at the end of October.  I am not sure how much weight she gained during her pregnancy; but let me say for the record: I had my baby on August 16th.  I am still not … Continue reading
