Gift Giving

Gift Giving

My favorite part of Christmas is giving gifts. I love the reaction on people’s faces. I love the amount of time and thought I put into each gift. I rarely give a thoughtless gift and am troubled by it when I do. I come from a family of givers. Both of my parents have always … Continue reading

Progress, Not Perfection

Progress, Not Perfection

On Valentine’s Day my husband bought me the most beautiful roses and wrote me a love letter. It was the perfect gift. In his love letter he wrote about how proud of me he was for how I’ve handled our loss. How he recognizes the bond between mother and child is like none other. How … Continue reading

You Know How To Take It Off

You Know How To Take It Off

I went to the Doctor’s today and it was the first time in months I’ve stepped foot on a scale. Within the last two weeks or so I’ve started getting back on track with running and cleaner eating. Within the last week my eating has been clean again. True Story: I contemplated going back to … Continue reading

Snowjam 2014

Good God, y’all. I live in Atlanta. WTF just happened to us? I was one of the fortunate and lucky. I typically have a 35 minute commute. I left my office at 12:30pm. I got home at about 3pm. That was a struggle. The roads were already icing and cars were already abandoned. I contemplated … Continue reading

When the tough gets going…

I’m trying to be tough…and say no to booze and yes to running and hell yeah to the best balance ever! Thanksgiving came and went and it was filled with love, family, friends, amazing food and booze. With there being no grey in my gluttony. I overdosed on good times, long distance family, bourbon, my … Continue reading

I’m trying

I’m trying

I’m trying. God knows I’m trying. I’m trying to find the balance between sanity and insanity; something I most often struggle with. Either I weigh in compulsively or not at all. I haven’t stepped foot onto the scale since my Post Op appointment. Kevin says he is glad I’m not torturing myself, but I can’t … Continue reading

Weekend ReCap

Weekend ReCap

Kevin, Alicia and I ran the Tap N’ Run 4k this week. “Ran” is generous – more like me did a little speed walking. Regardless, it’s beyond fun. The whole idea of the race is to drink and run. Ah-mazing! Here are a few pics! How was everyone else’s weekend? Don’t forget – there’s still … Continue reading

Looking Forward

Looking Forward

I had my post-operation visit last Thursday. The Pathology report came back to show that there were no genetic/parental issues and this was a true chromosomal fluke. We should be good to go in the future. Talk about a relief! The Doctor said to spend the next 6 or so weeks doing whatever makes me … Continue reading
