Years ago, I knew this guy Curtis. Once, I was hanging out in a group with Curtis, and someone offered him some gum. He declined, and then recounted how he had a friend who wanted to stop smoking, but it was too hard. Curtis said that it isn't t... Read more

I've been wearing out my exercise pants for a year now, but not because I've been exercising. Oh, no, no concern about that! But since they were also pajama pants, lounge pants, grocery shopping pants, everything but work pants, and now, they ar... Read more

I've been keeping up with my New Years Resolution perfectly so far. I just picked one small one. My resolution is to make my bed every morning. I've done it every day except for the days when my husband did it. Neither of us ever hav... Read more
I've Tried Nothing, and I'm All Out of Ideas!

I titled this blog thusly, because I'm self-aware enough to know that what you are about to read is a bunch of excuses. They do feel insurmountable to me, however, so I'd love some input as to overcome them. I got rid of my gym membership, ... Read more

I, like many people, have been glued to the news after the events on January 6. My emotions are all over the place with it. I work in Washington, and I'm disgusted by what I see, and every day, it looks even worse. I think I'm in shock to an ext... Read more

First, I want to say that my Christmas was EXACTLY what I imagined. It was perfect, except we had to watch "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," and it's SO BAD. I could write an essay on all the things I hate about that movie, so of course, my son ... Read more

This year sure has been...special. There hasn't been much to look forward to, nor much to look back on. When people ask me what I've been up to, it's like, uh...Judge Judy and online shopping. What else? I'm not going anywhere. I'm not doi... Read more

I'm really glad I have started blogging more frequently again. It has helped with feeling accountable and making better decisions. I would like some of your suggestions for solutions on a problem I'm having, though. My brain is...brok... Read more
A Follow-Up to Yesterday

First, I feel like I need to say that I have no intention of remaining this prolific for the long-haul. I just have a lot to say after a year, but I'm sure that after only a short while, I will run out. And then I won't have time to blog some da... Read more

When I wake up, my first thought is how today I'm going to do what I need to do to lose weight. When I get dressed, I am reminded by my tight clothes how very far I've let myself go. Every time I walk around, I'm focused on my fallen arches and ... Read more

I haven't blogged in a year. That's so weird, but maybe not really. I find it completely unsurprising that I have had little to say about weight loss and health in the last year. I'm at a new highest weight. I know what happened. It st... Read more

I had an NSV earlier this week. My coworker brought Panera bagels for everyone. I dutifully spread the word on my floor, but I didn't go to the kitchen to partake. I love Asiago bagels. Panera has them. They might have been in the kitchen, but I... Read more
Goodbye, July!

I seriously cannot wait to say goodbye to this stupid month. It has been one of the worst months of my entire life, if not the worst one. Definitely top 10. Or bottom 10? Top Ten Worst Months of My Life, or Bottom Ten Months of My Life. Is... Read more
Because Losing 30 Pounds Isn't a Priority for Me

Today, I was perusing the getdisciplined subreddit. Someone had posted a request for advice for getting past procrastination. They said when they are out with friends, they feel very motivated and anxious to start their projects, but when they g... Read more
Holding Your Mouth Right
Friday, March 15, 2019      11 comments

In the annals of folksy, old-fashioned slang, right between calling someone a "good egg" and saying you'll be back "in a jiffy," there lies the delightful phrase, "hold your mouth right." It's something oldsters (myself included) say when someth... Read more
