Checking In

I’ve had so little time for anything lately that I have several half written posts and a million more I should have written. I’ve been so overwhelmed at work that everything else has been neglected. It’s a really good thing that I don’t have any house plants… or a cat. Though, I’d really like a cat. Anyway, here’s a quick rundown of where things stand right now in my life. Weight ...more

Goals – Looking Back at 2012

Last year when I wrote my goals post I was trying so hard to be optimistic. I felt like I had been ripped to shreds and so I took it as an opportunity to figure out how to put myself back together. All of my goals were about rebuilding myself. I just wanted to be okay again ....more
