  1. Oh and Happy Belated Birthday!!
  2. Amazing!!!! You kicked ass!!! Congratulations on hitting all of your goals AND placing!!!
  3. I am exclusively in dresses, skirts and stretchy pants right now. Sigh... Good luck!
  4. I can’t see the pictures either. I’m sorry to hear about your sugar! Please be careful with your toes, as well as your eyes and kidneys. I know you aren’t looking for advice, but I agree with Mrs Dave. My dad wasn’t advised to test his sugar regularly either but started doing so to keep an eye on things. He uses that to not only monitor how he is doing, but also to monitor what foods affect him more.

    Tiny progress

    Guys, it happened. I was doing four sets of five minutes, in the hopes of eventually stringing along enough minutes to ditch the walk breaks all together, and it happened! It was my third set. I was chugging along, listening to “Nice White Parents,” and fretting about the world, when I realized that I wasn’t struggling. I looked at my garmin, assuming that I must have slowed down, but no! I was at my normal pace. It just didn’t suck. I didn’t feel like all I wanted to do in the whole world was stop. For the first time, in over a year, I was in that space. I could keep doing this. I wasn’t dying. My lungs felt okay. My legs felt okay. I was just... running. I am so relieved. I was starting to think that it was never going to happen again. I was just feeling defeated. I could run. It’s not that I couldn’t. I had even built up some small mileage last year. It’s that it never got any easier. It never felt easy no matter how slow or short. It was always hard work and I never got into a groove. It was making me lose that passion that I had for running. It was just a taste but it’s enough to keep me going for now. Just a tiny bit of encouragement to build off. A little flame to start fanning and see what happens. I am excited.
  6. I mean, as a lifestyle, I am okay with it. It’s my pants size that is suffering. 😂
  7. It depends on how skinny you are 😝
  8. Who knew that staying indoors, driving instead of walking, and having outdoor restaurants be your only form of entertainment, would lead to weight gain??? I am almost unable to deal with myself at the moment on this front. I am at the limit of my wardrobe and I refuse to buy new clothes and accept that I might stay at this weight for a while. I am honestly and simultaneously doing everything I can and having no idea what I am doing. I started tracking my calories and dropped half a pound. HALF A POUND!! Usually when I start doing something serious about my weight, I drop five pounds in the first week! Now, barely anything!! I hear this little voice telling me that I am approaching middle age and this is the new reality but that can’t be right! Wasn’t it just last week that I was doing body shots in the basement of the Chelsea Hotel while Gwen Stafani’s hot new banger, Hollaback Girl, was packing the dance floor??? Besides, I am WAY too immature to be nearing my 40’s. No, it can’t be that. Okay, until I figure this out, I am just going to keep at it. Slow and steady. Just like my running.
  9. Thank you!! Oh! You just reminded me, I have to move my car tonight!!!!
  10. If I had to guess, I’d say maybe five or six bagels. The mini is a fast car and made to keep the driver comfortable. Unfortunately, that means that the back seats are only decorative and the truck is at capacity with my snow scraper thingie.
  11. I’ve been told that my driving can be offensive but I think I am getting better! Erika hasn’t screamed from the passengers seat in a few weeks. (Sadly this is true)
  12. I KNOW!!! No, like deep in Queens! Like off the GCP!! 😭
  13. 1. Thank you!! 2. Oh my god I love that car!!! 3. Me too. I need something stable and sustainable.
  14. OMG! Gwen!! All around bad ass!!!
