Rants

It was a Sunday morning. Angela, Baby G and I went to the grocery store as we usually do. We picked up our normal grocery haul for the week and headed to the nearest checkout line. I unloaded our groceries onto the conveyor belt and waited for the cashier to scan them. And then something […]

On Wednesday morning, I started to see a huge amount of posts on social media talking about Starbucks’ new Unicorn Frapuccino drink. (source) This drink is a novelty that has bright colors and supposedly it’s sour. And it’s got everyone talking. I’m not going to talk about how it in a negative light like most […]

Over the past few weeks, I’ve had a lot of conversations with people. In those conversations, people are worried about what others are or are not doing. The problem I have is that people should really worry about themselves. They should worry about their own well-being. They should focus on their own problems instead of […]

I am a binge eater. I am an emotional eater. I could say that I “was” both of these but I would truly be lying to myself. It never goes away. For the longest time, I used food as a tool. As a suppressant. I used food to control my emotions. To make myself feel […]

The last time I posted a blog post was exactly two weeks ago. So, where have I been? I had to take a bit of a break from a lot of stuff going on. My days have been consumed with strength training in the mornings, marathon training/cross training in the evenings. It started taking a […]

As I write this blog post, I have just finished watching the movie, Julie & Julia. If you’ve never seen it, then you should. It came out in 2009 and was directed by Nora Ephron. It stars Meryl Streep and Amy Adams with each playing the roles of chef Julia Child and blogger Julie Powell. The […]

For the past few weeks, I’ve been thinking about my own personal journey over the last few years with weight loss. The journey has been thoroughly documented over at Angela’s blog. I’ve been thinking about what got me to the point of losing weight and what we’ve done since the journey began. It amazes me […]
