    just call me quarentina

    full disclosure: it took me a full 7 minutes to log in here because i forgot not only my password, but the email i use. this also led me to un-earthing a long forgotton, never posted blog/ blog post. either way, i’m here. and you’re here. in this quaran-weird time, where else would you be? edit: i don’t know why or how it happened, but this post went up on my asplashofmimosa.wordpress.com site instead of on here. i was wondering why i had not engagement. not that i have os much usually but i usually get a like or two thrown my way on twitter (thanks Dez!). i know nothing…

    martina is losing it #22

    ….aaand we’re back. Hello? Is this thing on? It’s been so long I’ve almost forgotten how to do any of this. But we’re here and we are thriving. I know that when blogs that aren’t weight loss blogs (or that are, whatever) don’t give an update in a while, it usually means the writer/loser had fallen off the wagon or is too busy being on billboards in Times Square. I have not done either, but I should be on a billboard. Because, friends, -sit down for this unless you’re ready, which I don’t think you are-  I am down a total of 76.7 pounds. SEVENTY-SIX POINT SEVEN POUNDS I hit…

    martina is losing it #20

    I know, it’s been forever since I last updated everyone. Unless you saw my latest instagram post. If you did, then just act surprised. Three weigh-ins ago, I lost 4.1 pounds, which at the time put me at 70 pounds down. Like, 70 on the nose. I know, crazy. I was guardedly optimistic. I’m still in awe of it all and it still doesn’t seem real. It’s almost a year so I don’t know what’s going on. Anyway, I wanted to wait a week and see which way the scale went. At the next weigh-in, the scale betrayed me and skyrocketed up 4.4 pounds. Rude. RUUUUUUUUDEEEEE. I was really upset.…

    martina is losing it #15

    As with the past few of these posts, you’d be amazed at how many times I’ve tried to start a post and then fell into a Youtube hole and wind up closing the tab without writing a word. I’ve been hacking up a lung for two days now and seeing as it’s the weekend, what a better time to lock myself in my bed to write and convalesce. Cutting to the chase, I know I’ve missed two weeks of updates. November started off strong with a 3.2 pound loss. I felt that one. My body felt different in the days leading up to Thursweigh. The second weigh-in of the month…

    martina is losing it #11

    Sorry I missed last week and left you hanging. Did she lose the PMS weight? Was it really PMS? Did she fall off the wagon? WHEN WILL WE FIND OUT??!! Yes/ I assume so/ Nope/Eventually, calm down. Last week I lost all of the PMS weight and then some. I was down 3.6 pounds, so, for the math challenged out there, that’s the 1.6 and 2 more pounds. This week I lost another 2.2 pounds. For those keeping any kind of track, that’s a grand total of 46.5 pounds! I am soooclose to entering a new decade, one that I can’t remember ever being in. There was a long stretch…

    martina is losing it #3

    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 anything and I had started to hope that I at least stayed the same. I know gains will happen, especially if I ever start working out. Those are considered gainz though, right? Anyway, I wasn’t too optimistic about weigh in. Then, for dinner last night my mom had went shopping…

    keeping up with martina

    *insert same sorry i’ve abandoned this space again greeting* *insert next sentence about how i didn’t mean to be away this long but life got in the way and time just moves so fast when you’re an adult (or an “adult”)* Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I know I’ve been quiet here lately and the truth is, there’s lots of stuff I want to talk about but it’s hard to write when everytime you sit down to put fingers to keyboard, you wind up instead falling down some Youtube hole and then falling asleep with your laptop on your chest. To try to combat this, I’ve…

    currently…

    Well, at least I’m consistent at being inconsistent. I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I’ve gotten back from San Francisco. I have yet to write the overview I wanted to write and time is just flying, as time does – especially in the summer. Since I’ve gone MIA for about three weeks, I’ll ease back into it with a good old Currently post. Everyone likes those still, right? Reading: blogs. Since California, I’ve been so backed up on blog reading and commenting; it’s embarrassing. As far as books, I’m officially (after about a month) am giving up on A Dangerous Age by Kelly Kiloreen Bensimon (yes, the real…

    blog reno- done!

    Ok, so, the colors don’t totally match, and it’s still a bit rough around the edges, but my blog renovation is complete! I couldn’t choose a specific color scheme so I figured the rainbow watercolor would work. And I kept some glitter since it’s my favorite color. I like it and that’s what matters, right? I’ll be on sometime during the week. I’m getting there, guys. Tell me what you think! (unless you don’t like it. keep that to yourself.)
