    martina is losing it #1

    *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 I can look back on days where I feel like it’s not working or if I (God forbid) plateau. Also, same for my blog in general, if there’s someone out there who finds this blog and can relate, connect, enjoy, then great! I’d love to hear from you. I want…

    weekend update: birthdays, bridesmaids, and onion rings

    Happy Monday! I don’t know about you but I’m ready to start a new week! Oh, it’s Tuesday already? Great. Slacked again. Anyway, I had a full weekend and didn’t want the opportunity to tell you all about it to pass. Sounds like fun, right? that’s the spirit! Friday – I was up at the ass crack of dawn because I had to be at work for 6:45am. I don’t usually work on Fridays so this was a double shock to the system. After work, I went home, freshened up and went to meet my cousins in Queens for happy hour in the city to celebrate my cousin Desiree’s birthday. After…
