Sunny Skies and Cooking New Things

I have definitely fallen off the blogging wagon! Ack! It’s unfortunate, because I’ve realized over the past month that this (super public) journal really has been helpful in keeping my mind clear and focused, and the support you’ve all given me makes a world of difference. I’ve been open in past blogs about my struggleContinue reading “Sunny Skies and Cooking New Things”

Housing Market Madness

I’ve had to take a break from watching my house porn on HGTV – no Property Brothers, Love It or List It, Too (the regular version is hateful, plus Bachelorette Jillian!) nor my beloved Fixer Upper.  It’s just too frustrating to watch, especially Fixer Upper.  Waco is apparently the only place to buy a houseContinue reading “Housing Market Madness”

Houses, Health Care and the Word of the Week…Mystifying.

I think I have four good reasons why I’ve been a little quiet on my blog this week: I’ve gained five pounds, and I’m annoyed at myself.  Hard to talk about my big life changes when I seem to have lost all enthusiasm.  I’m pretty sure it’s just all salt bloat, but I still feelContinue reading “Houses, Health Care and the Word of the Week…Mystifying.”

Not only can I probably not eat 90% of the recipes shown, but I’m the only overweight person at my pretty person gym. Whatevs. I’ve got my playlist bumping and the Pioneer Woman isContinue reading “Just a Casual Monday Night Dinner”

Good News, Bad News and the 50 Pound Mark

Good news first, yes? I officially hit the 50 pound mark over the weekend. It’s hard for me to wrap my head around being 51 pounds heavier this time last year. I’m still struggling with how I look and how my body (poorly) functions at this size, so how on earth was I doing itContinue reading “Good News, Bad News and the 50 Pound Mark”

Ode to a Cow. A Judgmental Cow.

I’ve been back in Dallas for nine months, which seems absolutely insane.  There are still people I haven’t had a chance to see!  Time just passes in a blink, doesn’t it?  Life changes so much – marriages, babies, careers, relocating, moving to the ‘burbs…it goes on and on.  It used to be so easy toContinue reading “Ode to a Cow. A Judgmental Cow.”
