Sad Day

I think today we have to put our family dog to sleep.  He is 15 and is suffering from chronic kidney failure.  He is so sick.  I know it is the right thing to do, but I am devastated.

Saying goodbye to a pet is the hardest thing, maybe the hardest thing I have ever had to do.

Did great until the weekend where I did nothing.  The average calorie burn is LOWER that what LoseIt uses to estimate how much I can eat.  Meaning I’m not running a deficit even when I think I’m running a deficit.  If that makes any sense.  It is complicated diet math.

Killin’ it.

Killin’ it.



We’ve been getting up early to try to get walks in before it gets too hot out.  We are usually rewarded.  Lovely and quiet.

This Shouldn't Feel So Familiar

A possum broke into an Australian bakery and ate so many pastries it couldn’t move. This is how they found him. -Imgur

I saw this on FB and thought “Yeah, this is pretty much me since I turned 35…7 weeks ago”.

Guys…I have GOT to get my head back in the GAME.



Mental Health Day

Hi friends! I have been a terrible blogger lately, but I promise, I’m going to try harder.  I mostly haven’t been blogging because this is supposed to be a fitness/weight loss/savings blog and I have been doing NONE of the above.  Mostly because I’ve been traveling/getting ready for traveling for the last 6 weeks.  Sad excuse, I realize.  BUT…today I took a much needed mental health day.  I woke up with a horrendous headache, took ALL the pills, and went back to bed.  Called in sick around 6:30 AM. Finally woke up again around 8:45.  Much needed.  The headache is still there, lingering right behind my eyes and nose (like most sinus headaches do).  I feel like it could get worse at any minute, so I’m taking it easy.

I’ve got dishes in the dishwasher, clothes in the clothes washer, and a stack of magazines to go through.

Sometimes you need a day to just breathe.  Today is that day. I hope yours is equally fabulous dear reader!



I swore I would never do another juice cleanse after my Blueprint cleanse dates got screwed up and I had to do it during a work week (to be read…it was terrible…if you are doing a Juice cleanse, I highly recommend doing it on days when you don’t have to make decisions). BUT…Living Social had an amazing deal on a 3-day cleanse by Jus by Julie.  In a moment of weakness, I bought it.  Then I forgot about it.  Then I had to pick a weekend to do it.  Last week I spent 8 days in San Diego for work. Every single night was a multi-course dinner with booze.  As such, I decided this weekend was a great one to detox.  I’m not sure I buy all the hype about “detoxing” but I do know I feel gross and bloated and drinking juice all weekend couldn’t possibly make that worse.
Any tips from regular juicers?  I’ll review when if I make it!
