    the dating game – bachelor # 1

    guys , i did a thing. my hair is fine. wonderful actually. i go to a bougie salon on long island now so if there’s one thing that’s right in my life, it’s my hair. if you’re new here – i’m single. very, very single. awkwardly single. paaaainfully single. got it? good. if you know me in real life you know that i believe in psychics and mediums and all of that stuff. so, if we put those two things together what do we have? no, not a problem. however – i paid someone to draw my soulmate. oh, i’m also a hopeless romantic. and then i quickly realized that…

    i shoveled snow today.

    i shoveled snow today. i shoveled a lot of snow today. i think the actual amount was a fuckton. it definitely felt like that much. before you say “yea, ok. and?” and click off, i have to explain. first of all – i loooooaaaaaatheeeeeeee the snow. second – we, in the new york tri -state area, just experienced a record setting blizzard. my area got about 15 inches, which i will admit, we’ve had worse. other areas got upwards of almost 3 feet. *gaaaaaag* however, 15 inches is over a foot and i don’t cope well with this. so why am i writing a whole post about me shoveling and…

    kids are assholes.

    i try to keep things light around here. weight loss and witticisms, that’s what’s on the menu. every so often though, i feel the need to talk about things that aren’t so fun and light. i’m being a little bit dramatic, but i didn’t know how to start this post since it’s a little bit out of my norm. well, my new norm because i used to post things like this – you know, before the weight loss took over. not that it’s a bad thing, i just miss it but can’t seen to get my shit together. excuuuuses, excuuuuuses. anyway, i saw this story on the news the other…

    $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…

    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 and be all of the world. “If it’s meant to be, it will be”. I catch myself saying that all the time. It has become one of my many mantras that get me through my (many) “why not me?” moments. BUT. TIMING. Sure, if it’s meant to be it will…

    martina is losing it #25 – stoop talk

    GIIIIRRLLLL… it’s been a month. Not in a my life is a whirlwind of activity way, just in a it’s been a month since I last posted. Cool. I briefly forgot I had a blog, TBH. But I do and I’m here now so let’s get started, shall we? Back in the heyday of blogging, to keep it interesting, instead of just writing rambling paragraphs updating the masses on what’s going on in your life, us bloggers would switch it up a little and write them as if we were having coffee and conversation. I’m doing that today because I feel like it and it’s been a month since I’ve…

    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.…

    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 way, we had to interview someone and I picked my grandmother. I don’t remember what the interview was about, her childhood maybe? My grandmother was born in 1919, so by the time World War II rolled around, she was already married with a child (well, uncle Phil came closer to…

    loving lately

    I was working on a different post for today but it was kind of whiny and blah so I scrapped it and am throwing together a Friday Favorites/Five/ Fwhatever the kids are calling them these days. I recently got the unexpected but fantastic news that Supermarket Sweep 2000 is now on Amazon Prime. Be still my nostalgic heart. If there’s one thing I love it’s watching people in pastel sweatshirts tear ass around a fake supermarket, hurling gold foil wrapped hams in their cart like their lives depend on it. LOVE IT. Speaking of TV, Netflix has revamped Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. I’m obsessed. I loved the original…

    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…
