martina is losing it #6

Now that my birthday has come and gone, I could tell you that I didn’t hit 31 for 31. Instead, I hit 32 pounds! I’m being kind of cavalier with my finger guns and semantics, especially since I weighed in before my birthday weekend. My birthday was very nice, thanks for asking. Anyway, 32 pounds. My mind is constantly blown.…

With another Thursweigh on the horizon, I thought I should come on here and quickly update on last week’s results. As of last week, I’m down 29.5 pounds! This week, I cheated and hopped on the scale. I don’t really like to do that because if the number is higher, then I’ll stress until Thursday and be all mopey about…

As I’m writing this, it’s still Thursweigh so it still counts. It’s been three weeks since my last update; my middle name is OnTheBall. I’m going to make this pretty quick (3582 words later…) and painless. The long and short of it is I am officially down 26.5 pounds! lolwut. It’s very surreal and hard to accept. I still feel…

um, yea i do really care, actually.

When I was in fourth grade, we were given an assignment to interview someone who was a different age than you were. Or maybe it was to interview someone who was older than you, but that doesn’t make much sense because when you’re 9, pretty much everyone is older than you. Everyone that would sit for an interview, anyway. Either…

If you’re reading this as soon as it went up (as you should), it’s Monday, but as I write it, it’s Thursday, or Thursweigh, as I’ve renamed it. So let’s keep that in mind as I ramble on. This whole week leading up to my weigh-in, I felt like nothing was happening. I had convinced myself that I didn’t lose…

Robin Williams Joan Rivers Princess Diana Kate Spade These are the four celebrities whose death hit me like a ton of bricks. Ever since I got back from San Francisco (almost a year ago – WHAAT?), I said, to anyone who will listen, that as dramatic as it may sound, I felt Robin Williams’ spirit all through the city. I…

I know I insinuated that I’d be back soon with my favorite food/recipe blogs and weight loss updates. I also know that I said that going on three weeks ago. Either way, here I am, ready to share and update. No recipes though; I’m still tweaking the list. As of last Thursday, I am down 18.5 pounds! Two weigh-ins ago…

*taps glass with a knife* Listen up! I have an announcement. Hey! Phones down, eyes on me. I’ll make it quick. I JOINED WEIGHT WATCHERS (finally.) Now, that’s not to say that this blog is changing into anything resembling a healthy living/fitness blog. Not at all. I do, however, plan on using it for accountability and for posterity’s sake so…

scratching the makeup itch

I don’t wear makeup to work much anymore. Lately, I’ve been getting the itch, but then I realize that I could put off getting out of bed for an extra 20 minutes if I don’t scratch it. I was trolling YouTube, as I do to live vicariously through people who don’t go to work looking like they were hit by…

i wonder if i’ll get a badge for this.

Yesterday at work, I got a phone call from Margie Adams. Margie is 80 years old and lives in a suburb of Chicago. Her husband is 85 and blind. She’s got no daughters, just a few grandsons. She called looking for Cushion Grip, which is a high powered denture cream. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued and we have long since…
