Wednesday Weigh In -- um not

Ugh, I've been off the reservation BAD about my eating and I'm afraid to get on the scale.

Today is another day!

And I woke up with the best of intentions of getting my flabby body on the elliptical and just.couldn'

I'm in a funk and am having a bit of a hard time getting out of it.  Sometimes it just takes so much energy to work full time, be a mom of kids in activities, a wife, running the household, being a friend. Frankly, I've been sucking at all of these things.  Also sucking at taking care of myself.

My sister has fallen off the wagon and is drinking ... drinking a lot. This might have something to do about it?

A new job? I have no idea what I'm doing -- I hate that. Being smart is my thing.  Because it isn't being pretty or sexy (I'm not ugly, I'm just not, whoa, check her out awesome -- more bring home to your mother pretty and appropriate -- the kind of pretty where women and gay men find me pretty - Lesbians and straight men, not so much).


Soooo, today I'm going to work hard in getting out of my funk. It's going to be a really long day at work -- which will give me an opportunity to NOT eat in front of the TV after work until bed time.

I did get my hair done yesterday -- I went short -- I love it. Here's a picture. Keep in mind, I really suck at those mirror shots -- not really a skill I'm feeling a need to perfect though.

Now that I have cheek bones and a jaw line again I feel good about going short.

Here's to restarting, getting back on that horse, starting over and getting it done!


  1. ahh sounds like you have a lot on your plate right look super cute with your new hair cut!

  2. Girl I feel ya! I put on my workout clothes this morning. And I didn't workout! :/ I like your new hair! And yes, the compliments from gay men are nice, but how about some props from the straight men??? (Or at least not the creepy straight guys, ugh) Story of my life. Have a great day!

  3. Family mess can really get to a person. I've been "off" myself due in large part to the stress I'm feeling over a sibling's inability to stay sober, and it's making me insane. It's not my issue, and I know that... but I still want to rip my hair out and rather than do that, I eat.

    So, yeah... I feel ya!

  4. I love the new cut and being able to see those cheekbones and jaw line! :) Plus, you are way better at the mirror thing than me because your mirrors are clean. :)

    I hope you get out of your funk soon!

  5. Sorry to hear about the family stuff....I will keep my fingers crossed it gets sorted out. I love your hair! I know I felt much more confident about going shorter when I lost weight in my face. You look great!

  6. Your new 'do' is super cute.
    It sounds like you have a lot going on. Try to just take a few minutes for you.
