I am not my mother!

Several years ago, I intensely disliked my Mom and the way she treated my brother and I when we were growing up. I wanted to shove the truth of the way I grew up into my relatives’ faces and ask them why they allowed her to mistreat us so much. Mother’s day is never an [...]

It has been a week of Monday the 13th and it’s still not over!

It has been a crazy week! It’s like it has been Monday the 13th all week and tomorrow promises to be a nightmare! Since I work in retail, the first of the month is always something to look forward to - almost as much as say, a root canal. Now, management has lost their mind [...]

Mean people suck!

Why do people have to be so mean and hateful? If you are going to be mean and hateful everywhere you go, please stay home, cause I’m tired of dealing with your hatefulness!

Tomorrow I will hate the scale

So, after I did the fit day journal and recorded all my stuff, I realized how bad it was. Not only did I eat WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY bad for me food/drink, I also had alost triple the calories I should be having in a normal day! OUCH!
This is really helping me to see how much I am [...]

Sweat pants inside out!

Yesterday, I started my training for my 8k “event”. I left the house full of confidence and optimism. As I was walking, I was looking at the pretty houses and the pretty flowers. I was one with my world.
