5 Thoughts It’s Sunday. Why am I up at 7 a.m. without the alarm for no reason at all? Oh right. I started coughing. So much for going to bed without Nyquil for the first time in a week. What a beautiful day outside and pleasant inside. It’s a great day to do whatever! And so we went mattress shopping. And it was virtually painless (except for when I cut my thumb on the laminated price sheet). We were in

5 Thoughts Need to eat 7 times a day is easy when you’re at a Renaissance Faire, I tell you. There’s food EVERYWHERE and tavern at every corner! And I want to eat EVERYTHING! Fortunately for me, there’s only so much cash in my wallet… …and even less room underneath my underbust corset. LOL Seriously. There must be a study somewhere about how women get drunk faster and/or feeling the effect of alcohol more while wearing a corset. I had 2 drinks

5 Thoughts ….well, screw the five thoughts for today. I have ONE major rant. Whoever said that keeping a food journal and tracking your calorie intake is good for your diet must really and truly hate food, and therefore hate life. I mean, look at me. I have NEVER felt guilty about my food choices or what I eat. For the past few days, I have been anxious and upset over the fact that I’ve exceeded the 1,550 calories per

5 Thoughts I foresee interesting substitution meal and weird scheduling in the future if I don’t start the day with 8 a.m. Breakfast. I’m getting hungry almost to the minute of my schedule now. It’s kind of creepy… I stuck to the schedule quite well considering that I spent half a day running around LA on geeky adventure with my Team Wicket partner Christine. Hooray for Free Comic Book Day! I fucking hate LA. I did exceed the 1,550 calorie

Let’s do a quick recap of 2013 first. 2013 Goals: kind of 7 out of 10 Find a job I love? Check! Oh my god, check! Don’t finish last at Race on the Base? Totally check. What I didn’t expect is that I would stick with running and continue to run 5K races around the neighborhood. This year’s Race on the Base is my one year anniversary race, and also my last race in a series of 3 to receive

I know I usually do a 2013 recap here with all of my high points and low points of the year. 2013 has been a year of great things. You could say it might have been one of the best years of my life. So, instead of the usual recap, I’d like to actually, literally, count my blessings. Blessing #1: A Permanent Job Since I moved on from the last permanent job in 2011, I was freelancing for about 12
