$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…

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?

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 recently got the unexpected but fantastic news that Supermarket Sweep 2000 is now on Amazon Prime. Be still my nostalgic heart. If there’s…

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…

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…

rant and ramble: a possible case of stockholm syndrome

I’ve been at my new job for a month now and I never thought I’d say this there are things I miss about my old one(s). I know, so crazy. Especially after all of the blog posts I’ve written, both in my head and on here, all the tears I’ve shed over shitty situations, letters of complaint I’ve threatened to…
