Sometimes, It's Like Technology Knows.
Yesterday, I had a conversation with a friend who asked me if there was someone from my life that I wasn’t currently speaking to now - but that I knew, deep down, I would see or hear from them again. A simple question — yes. But a question that has been running through my mind ever since. Of course, with OMB - I know I will never see or hear from him again. I don’t know why I...
Game on Diet
So there’s this game some of my friends and I are playing in September. It’s called the Game on Diet. A friend of a friend has done it a bunch of times and had really good success with it, so I figured it would be fun to do with friends to kickstart some healthy eating. We all paid $10 to participate and the winners take the cash. SUPER EXCITING AND AWESOME, right?! Then I read all of...
youremybooradley: We’ve reached the point in this little living-with-my-parents adventure where there are empty beer bottles in my bedroom trashcan. Send help. K & B Take Wyoming needs to happen STAT. I just took my mother bra shopping. I feel your pain. Alert Cowboy Josh.

Bringing Back the Weight Training
I’m putting more focus on weight training than I have in awhile. I usually just do an average amount of cardio (40-60 minutes) and then I get lazy and skip the weights. Which isn’t good — because I not only want to build up my strength cardio-wise, I want to work on toning again. I used to really focus on weight and strength training in college — and I saw a much more...
Hip Hop Therapy
It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this exhausted after a workout. After really focusing on my arms on Tuesday with weights - and then tonight’s Hip Hop class (which was REALLY turned up a notch this week with a couple new routines) - I am ridiculously sore & burnt out. My whole body aches! I got home at 9, had a really late dinner at 9:45, and have been trying to...
Billy: All I’m saying is that there’s no good way to break up with someone. Carrie: Well, it’s funny you should mention that Billy, because, actually, there is. You can have the guts and the courtesy to tell a woman, to her face, that you no longer want to see her. Call me crazy but, I think that, you can make a point of ending your relationship in a manner that does not include...
Me: (eating lunch at my desk like a rockstar) Boss: (passes by) Look at you and your grapes! And your turkey wrap. You always seem to eat really healthy when you pack. And you gym so much after work! I wish I had your motivation. Me: (quickly) Oh NO! I only do well during the day. Then I go home and all bets are off. There are two problems with this. One being - why couldn’t my response...
Tonight, leaving work — traffic was a breeze. I suddenly found myself at the gym at 5:35, much earlier than my usual 5:55 arrival. (It’s crazy how long construction can delay your gym arrival time.) On a whim, even though I had just taken Hip Hop the night before at my old gym, I grabbed a schedule to see what was on the agenda for the evening. 5:45 - Kickbox Cardio Plus Abs I...
Question of the Day: Hip Hop Edition
So guess who got a little dizzy mid-hip-hop move in class tonight, lost her balance, and slammed into her friend during one of the routines? It’s amazing how embarrassing I am at times. And it’s not like I even try - it just comes so gosh darn naturally! (I quickly recovered and kept going. No friends were harmed in the making of this buff bootylicious bod.)
The Scale Doesn't Lie.
200.5 Exactly 10 pounds gained in three months. Almost to the day. In other news… 3/4 cup Cracklin Oat Bran is a whole lot less than I thought. Time to be honest with myself again.

Why do I...
…pick the worst times to get the summer head cold from hell? I have too much to do to be dealing with this.
Hocking Hills and Florida Recap
It is so hard for me to sum up everything I’ve experienced in the past two weeks. In a nutshell, the weekend with friends at Hocking Hills was FANTASTIC…at least on Friday night. When we arrived on Friday I felt like a member of the Real World — or if you will, Jersey Shore. Each time a door opened and more people walked into the house, I grew more & more excited. It was SO...
