How do you lose weight? How do you work towards the life you want?


(and a healthy sense of humor)


While I was out...

On my last post before on of my "breaks" I was granted an award from Genie . Thank you so much Genie!

Being the slacker blogger I am, I am going to only complete the first part of the rules (since I am so uber behind on reading blogs) I will nomiate folks soon.

Six outrageous lies and one outrageous truth:

1. I am married with 10 wonderful children.
2. I am Facebook friends with the Dalai Lama.
3. I strip on weekends for extra cash.
4. I own well over 500 books.
5. I have a degree in animal husbandry.
6. My favorite fruit is tomatoes.
7. I won the lottery and donated it all.

Reading crazy,

Cardio Party?

Hi all -

Trying a new workout this week - The FIRM Cardio Party. It is a 40-minute workout with no equipment needed. I was an idiot and tried it after I had breakfast and got a cramp pretty quickly, I may try again this afternoon. AnyWAY the first 10 minutes kicked my butt, I'm not very coordinated and they change it up pretty quick. I'm hoping by the end of the week I won't be cussing them out nearly as much. From what I can tell though it will be fun...eventually. (link to pic)

For breakfast I had brown rice, chicken and egg - it was actually really good. I need to make it to the grocery store today so I not eat out all week. On Friday and Saturday I am working tech for a dance show (hanging lights and such) from about 8am to 10pm so I will try to still do my workouts so that the hanging light burning calories bit will be a bonus.

I have a music festival to go to in August so I am hoping to do some major FAT damage in the next couple months.

Happy FAT blasting you all,


Still alive

Not sure how life gets away from me so quickly. I am maintaining the loss I have so far, but haven't been able to up the workouts I have been able to do.

My mom has moved back to my state, and was living with me for about a month before she got her own place and I have an ex-boyfriend who knocked on my door...still deciding what to do about that.

I am transferring schools so that is good, I feel like it is going to be a better path to where I want to be long-term. The big goal is to some day run my own theatre, so X your fingers!

I'm a horrible blogger and someday I hope to be a better one.

Good news, is that with mom in town I can buy bulk stuff at Costco since she has a card. My favorite find so far is frozen Edamame, it is so easy to heat up for a quick meal/snack.
