    $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 I just get them out of the way? Everything is related and connected in some way, so I’ll just get it out of the way now. To date, I’ve lost 91.6 pounds. It was more a few weigh-ins ago but I had two small gains for two weeks in a…

    a love story, in 11 parts

    It’s been a long time since I’ve talked about anything other than my weight loss (up .7lbs this week. it’s fine. shark week started tuesday, NYE dinner was kind of heavy. it will be gone by next thursweigh. hopefully.). I’m sure you’ve noticed and I’m sure you’re thinking to yourself “I wonder what’s going on in Martina’s love life? She hasn’t updated us in a while. No news is good news, right? Good for her.” uuuummmm. no. To be honest, I’m feeling myself falling into the same feeling of hopelessness and despair (#dramaqueen) that I did last year. It’s weird because every early January I see the whole year filled…

    martina is losing it #17

    When we last spoke, I said that I was 1.9 pounds away from 60 pounds down. That Thursweigh, I lost 3.3 pounds, making my total amount lost 61.4. The following week, I had a teeny tiny gain (.2lbs), but still leaving me in the 61 range. As of my last weigh in, which was a tiny loss, I’m down 61.9 pounds. If any of this math doesn’t add up, blame WW, because it’s what the app is telling me. Math is not my strong suit. Either way, 61.9 pounds! Still seems impossible, but I’m not here today for the shock and awe of myself. I live it everyday.  We have…

    martina is losing it #5

    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 it. I mope about enough; I’m over the weight mope. Anyway, I hopped on the scale and gained a pound and a half. There were alot of factors to this though. 1) I usually weigh in first thing in the morning. It was already after dinner when I hopped on.…

    single gal speaks: don’t PMS & Bumble

    I’ve been trying to write this for about two weeks now but I don’t know what to really say. Unlike my last post, where I didn’t know how to start it because I was so excited I just wanted to word vomit all over the screen, this one is a lot more personal. Ok, I’m being dramatic. It’s about online dating surprise! My biggest issue with writing this post is that I’ve talked about it here before and I’m sure I will again and as much as I want this one to be THE one, I know I’m going to wind up sounding like a broken record. However, I know…

    2017, are you listening?

    It’s Friday, so here are five things. What better time than just past the middle of February to make a list of things I’d like to see in 2017? These aren’t resolutions, so it’s fine. Right? 2017 – I’m going to need a few things. You listening? A new “We Didn’t Start the Fire” – I  was watching Billy Joel’s WDSTF video and thinking back to when I heard it live at Madison Square Garden. It’s one of my favorites from Bill. With all that’s going on these days and all that’s gone on since the original came out, I think it’s time for BJ to update and re-record this…

    single gal speaks: BUMBLE

    Bumble has finally made it to the Google Play store. Bumble, if you aren’t aware, is yet another one of those right swipe/left swipe dating apps. Except, after you make a match, the GIRL has 24 hours to start a conversation with the guy or else he disappears forever. Kinda love the idea, kinda hate it. Anyway, I downloaded it and, of course, have had some thoughts about it that I am going to share with you right now. I wonder if Bumble is ready for Android yet. Or do I? Maybe I should just leave it alone. Let me just check. Oh, look. There it is. Should I download…
