Sex and Chocolate (and steak and fries and cheese and pie)

Well…It has been a week and a half since I joined Weight Watchers, and I have done very well. I have been dedicated, stayed within my points, and lost two pounds. It’s going splendidly, but it has greatly exemplified something I was well aware of–I love food. I don’t just — “maybe go to dinner…

Let Me Take a Selfie

Ah, the selfie; a staple of the modern times. We have all taken them. We all have found ourselves sitting in front of the mirror at one time or another and taking 20 pictures of ourselves in order to find one appropriate for posting.   My feelings about selfies are complex. And I am referring…

Joining A.A.

I finally did it, I joined Weight Watchers. It’s like A.A., but the meetings aren’t free, there are no cookies, and we don’t get hospitalized for our withdrawal symptoms.

An Ode to Daniel Bartlett

I was feeling particularly discouraged this week. I was feeling like I was working so hard and I wasn’t seeing any results. I have been exercising 5 days a week for what feels like forever now (Update: I still hate exercising! When am I supposed to start liking it?!) I have been keeping my calories…

Clothed in Grace

For as long as I can remember, I have been an eccentric dresser. What started out as an affinity with lime green clogs at the age of 6 has morphed into and obsession with vintage frocks and expensive shoes. As a fashionista with addictive tendencies, I deeply identify with the great Carrie Bradshaw when she…

Yes

“One of my New Year’s resolutions is to say “yes!” Yes to love, yes to life, yes to staying in more!” –Liz Lemon   One of the most important lessons I have learned in my life is the importance of saying “yes.” It is one of the main reasons I firmly believe all people should be…
