$4,812 – by carrie’s standards

I’M A SHITTY BLOGGER. there. i said it. let’s move on. Instead of a weight loss update, because this is more than a weight loss blog and that’s the hill I will die on, I wanted to just do kind of a Currently post. A brain dump of sorts. Should I wait to mention weight loss related things? Or should…

martina is losing it #27

It is currently Sunday night. I’m fighting the Sunday Sadness by watching the new Four Weddings and a Funeral on Hulu because Mindy Kaling is behind it and I can only re-watch The Mindy Project so many times. Luckily, I haven’t exceeded that limit so I’ll probably turn it on later. God, I miss that show. Anyway, we’re here for…

timing vs. fate: a debate

I may have written about this before (God knows I’ve tried), but come with me on it. I’ve been thinking alot – probably too much – about timing. *puts philosopher’s hat on* Is it fate or timing that dictates how things are going to go? Are they in cahoots? I always thought it was fate. Fate was the end all…

musical memories

In a refreshing twist, this post has absolutely nothing to do with weight loss. I’m doing well and an update is coming, just not now. I’ve mentioned here before that we’re not allowed to play music at work. It sucks but I was dealing with it. And by dealing with it, I mean it was driving me up a wall.…

omg [i’m] back again

If you were here before this turned into a weight loss/accountability blog, you’d know that I used to talk about things that I was passionate about, like Harry Styles and The Mindy Project. I also used to talk about things I did or events I attended. And when those things combined, you know I was on here for sure letting…

martina is losing it # 26

How is it that it’s been over a month since my last general post and even longer since my last weight loss post? I could say I’ve been busy, which, if you don’t look at what I’m doing Monday- Friday from 9a-5p () and only at the weekends, it’s an accurate statement. But it’s not an excuse. I didn’t have…

to martina on her (32nd) birthday

I turn 32 today. I feel like I’m 8. I act like I’m 12. I’ve talked about this before, but it’s my birthday so I make the rules. When I was in first grade, we had journals that we were given a prompt to write about every day. Usually just a sentence or two and a small illustration. I remember…

martina is losing it #24

Here I am again and this time I’m prepared. I checked my last post to see where I left off. I usually just guess and hope I’m not repeating myself, which would be nothing new. When we last spoke, I had briefly hit the 80-pound mark. Last Thursweigh brought a 1.5-pound loss so we’re back in the 80-pound range and…
