It’s Not Only About The Numbers

July 7, 2014

I don’t talk about my weight or (lack of) efforts here much here because I don’t see the point in it. I’ve gained weight, and I don’t like it. I know that I need to make some changes if I want my weight to change, blah, blah, blah… I’d like to start seeing the numbers […]

Question: Would You Be Thankful? Embarrassed? Offended?

July 5, 2014

I wrote this while traveling to New York yesterday, but I got distracted before posting it.  I’m still curious about the answer to the question so please take a minute to hear me out. —– I’m currently on a flight to New York City, and when I arrived at the gate I learned that I […]

Honest and Uninspired

July 1, 2014

I don’t love blogging here anymore.  I like sharing my thoughts, but it’s been a long time since I was interested in discussing my health here. I’ve droned on about my feelings of regret and failure because I’m not succeeding in the area of weight-loss, but while I was in Savannah a friend posed a very […]

Fitbloggin, Friends, NOLA Church and Stuff

June 23, 2014

I can’t believe that it’s already finals week for the summer session.  The last few weeks have been busy and awesome, and while I haven’t made much time to check in here, I decided to do that this evening.  (I should be studying for a final exam that I’m taking tomorrow at noon, but blogging […]

The Handsome Guy at the Coffee Shop

June 13, 2014

Dating isn’t easy in my body, but the truth is, it’s complicated for most people. I just have the added frustration fun of waiting for someone to see past my size and gorgeous friends.  (Seriously, I have some incredibly pretty friends, but I wouldn’t trade them.) I spend a lot of time at Starbucks because of […]

Making a Difference in a Big Way

June 12, 2014

I don’t always share the projects that I’m involved in on my blog, but if we’re connected on social media, you might know that I’m involved with a pretty incredible group of people who aren’t afraid to stand up and make a difference. PlusInc is a nonprofit organization that is committed to giving a voice […]

Seeking Validation and Instant Gratification

June 10, 2014

We all like to feel validated, and some of us need it more than others.  I used to be among the neediest people I knew, and as I sat with Jeff and Shannon last night at Starbucks, we reflected on the changes we’ve all gone through over the last year. Jeff got married, and Shannon […]

Tieks and Tory Burch and Why Target Won

June 5, 2014

Last week I wrote a post about Tieks and Tory Burch because I desperately needed new flats.  I love Tory Burch, but when I was searching for a replacement for my latest, doomed pair, I didn’t see anything as cute or versatile my last pair. While I was at Target with my friend, Ariel, we […]

Back To New York

June 4, 2014

It’s been quite a long time since I made a trip back to New York.  I went several times in 2012, but when I moved into my apartment later that year, I started loving my life here.  I didn’t spend much time thinking about New York, and that was an unexpected relief. I’ve grown and […]

Things Change

June 2, 2014

Clint is moving to Chicago in a few weeks, and when he called to tell me about the job offer, he asked if I thought he should go.  My opinion matters a lot to that guy, and I don’t like it lightly.  I asked him if he wanted to go, and he answered the way […]
