Insert clever post title here

So much for keeping up with the regular blogging, eh? I’m chalking it up to the terrible sadness that accompanied the end of Blogger Road Trip 2012 and leaving Shauna behind. Sniffle, sniffle. I’ll be alright eventually but I still hate that I can’t just say something silly to hear her laugh as we’re getting ready to go out.

I want to write something clever and insightful but I don’t think I have it in me right now. Since my return to the real world I’ve been consumed with work and my volunteer obligations, neither of which makes me feel in the slightest bit clever or insightful. Still I’m fairly certain this funk (code word for depression) will pass and I’ve been composing a post in my head about my joining Weight Watchers – which I did last Saturday morning – and why I have been binge eating as a result. Perhaps over the weekend it will make it from my head to this page.

Fabulously good news is that Lori is back to blogging at her original site. After meeting her in person I am even more convinced than before that her great writing and amazing design sense are an unbeatable combination and should be enjoyed by everyone, so do go over and give her a read (if you haven’t already).


    I’m having a similar problem with working out. It’s like I’m mad that I can’t just do what I want. Now there’s guilt and stress brought to the forefront that was just below the surface before. There is just so much more to this than hey fatty just moderately eating and exercise, people think it’s so simple but there’s something really nestled in there wanting to rear it’s ugly head. Thanks for the shout out. You and Shauna are both so wonderful. It was an honor and pleasure to meet you both and spend time with you.


      I can totally relate to the stress and pressure being brought back to the surface, that’s just how I feel. I was loving life while I was on vacation and it was so easy to make good choices and feel good about myself without any of the day to day stuff to deal with but once I got back, the pressure of “supposed to” started to build and now I’m just in full-on binge mode. Grrr.

      Meeting you was a definite highlight of my trip. I’ve been reading you since before I had a blog of my own and you’ve always been such an inspiration! Now you’re my inspiration come to life and I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to spend time with you.

  • It was great seeing you at FitBloggin. I also joined Weight Watchers again last week. It’s lucky number 7 for me. The 7th time is a charm. 🙂


      Hi Patty,

      Thanks for stopping by! Congrats on the WW joining – I know we’ll both be successful and am looking forward to showing everyone a lot less of me at next year’s Fitbloggin’

      Wait, that sounds naughty, doesn’t it? You know what I mean, though! 🙂

      Thanks again,
