Excruciating pain and nail polish

I had a rough night last night. It involved a really bad familiar pain flare that left me feeling like this:

all night. Then, I ate a taco salad after my calories for the day had already been used up. I was having insane cravings. I required salty crunchiness. Augh. That is the second time this week I slipped up. The first time was due to eating too early one day so I ended up eating extra that day cuz my schedule was a mess.

I haven't been exercising much this week either. Pain was creeping up on me and I've spent my days off in bed just trying to prepare for what hit last night. I wanted to do the cardio max dvd but that was not happening because my hips and joints were on fire.

I slept a lot last night, and I woke up feeling quite a bit better. I think I'll be doing c25k today, MAYBE cardio max, depending. I do have a very long day tomorrow and don't want to kill myself the day before it. Yeah, I think c25k will be all I do. and LOTS of pt today. Lots and lots. I need to be able to handle this, I need this job, I love it for one, and I like the feeling of Independence the extra money is going to give me.

I also need to be able to pay for my new nail polish addiction! This is sally Hansen's Cyber with two coats of Byte over top. Cyber is a bright purple and Byte is a sheer hot pink with purple flashes in it. I also have  Express Finish's Timely Turquoise that I layer Hansen's DVD sheer purple/blue over top of and love that too. I highly suggest the HD line, it's amazing! Oh! EDA: Also, I put a coat of sally hansen green tea nad  bampoo nail strengthener over top to 'seal' the color and I'm on day four with NO CHIPPING. :)


  1. I hope you feel better! I hate pain in my body in any form.

    The nail polish is gorgeous!

  2. Glad to hear you are feeling better. I love that color combination you have there!

How Intuitive eating (did not) work for me

So I have spent roughly the last year and a half or more trying to lose weight by eating intuitively. I'm not really great at it. I have lost 30 lbs in a year and a half, it's moving at such a snails pace that I have finally decided that the only thing that works for me is tracking, and even though in my head I know I won't possibly do it forever, I have to go back to it.

So, Joey and I are tracking again, so far so good. It's only been a few days, but it at least hasn't been a struggle. I figure we will stay where we are calorie wise and after about a month and hopefully some loss (not being too focused on the scale though, it's been my downfall in the past) we can reduce our calories a little bit at a time.

I know this is the right thing to do, but I feel kind of down that I did so poorly with intuitive eating. Then again I probably wouldn't be fat if I were good at that sort of thing. :P Here's to being "On Plan." :D

Also, my job has finall…

I Was a Fat Bride

Our wedding pictures are the first thing you see when you walk into our home. 

Joey and I have been together for over 22 years. We've both gained and lost a lot of weight over the course of our relationship. Then we regained, and re-lost, you know how it goes. We got married on our 19 year anniversary, which is in March.  We had decided to get married just four months prior. So after what our friends teased was a 'brief 19 year courtship", we decided to just go ahead and do it. I know there are a million blogs and articles about losing weight for your wedding. This is not one of them. I had four months to lose weight. I don't really even remember what was going on, but I had NO desire to diet or attempt to lose weight and so I just...didn't. Joey lost a bit of weight so he could wear that fancy vest. I appreciate the effort, he looked handsome in it. :)

We thought we would never get married. We didn't see the point, we kind of still don't, and luckily, be…

Flying While Fat

"I'm scared of flying while fat," I told my friends when I was planning a trip from Pittsburgh to Denver in October of 2016. It was to be my first time on a plane, and I had heard all about Kevin Smith's problems with Southwest Airlines. There is the obvious fear of my ample hips spreading into the seat next to me, and some poor unsuspecting fellow passenger being assaulted by my fat spilling onto them. The fear of being told to buy a second seat, that I probably couldn't comfortably afford was real. Should I buy a second seat to begin with? I did decide to spring for the slightly larger seats in the front on a Frontier Airlines flight.

The anxiety leading up to the trip was palpable. I scoured the internet for stories about people's experiences of flying while fat. People who felt as if they had been crammed into a sardine can, pictures of squished thighs and disgusted and disgruntled fellow passengers, offended by the amount of space their fat fellow passen…
