No Weigh

Do you find yourself staring at the scale every day...

Or sometimes multiple times per day, just willing that number to go down or be smaller?

Are you obsessing over what that dial reads?
Do you feel like you've wrapped your self worth up in that silly number?
I hear you!
It's still a constant battle I have with myself.
What's really silly is that weight fluctuates day-to-day, even hour-to-hour.
It's one thing to track your progress, it's an entirely different thing to let a number determine what kind of day we'll have.
We can drive ourselves crazy watching that number go up and down, up and down all day everyday.


Well, one of my health & wellness support groups is doing something really refreshing, it's called "No Weigh October."
Basically, we're banding together to stay off the scale for the month and give ourselves a much needed break from the scale addiction...
Not to mention the worry and stress and FRUSTRATION if that number goes up instead of down.
Here's how it works:
We record our final weight, along with bust, waist, hips, upper thigh and calf of dominant leg, and bicep of dominant arm measurements. Then, we just live our lives the rest of the month, focusing on our fasting, nutrition and activity levels and forgetting about that darn scale.
On October 31st, we will weigh and measure again to check our results.
Here are my starting weigh-in and measurements:
Weight: 131.6
Bust: 33in
Waist: 28 1/4in
Hips: 36in
Upper Thigh: 21in
Calf: 14in
Bicep: 11in
I can't wait to see my results at the end of "No Weigh." It's amazing what you can accomplish with like-minded people and the right support systems.
No weigh we go!

Covid-19: A Message From A Front Line Health Care Worker

Hello friends, I hope this message finds you well.  Through out the recent weeks, and the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have been struggling on what to say.  I have been trying to keep a positive outlook, telling myself that we'll be okay. That everything will go back to normal eventually, but as we've seen, so much changes from day to day that it's hard to know what the future holds right now. It's scary. It can be overwhelming. We've never seen anything like this. Some of us are in major hotspots and some, thankfully, are in more sheltered pockets. The reality of the situation is that we are all affected. I am writing this from my home office, a place that I have spent much much more time in recently, especially in the wake of the governor of Colorado, Jared Polis' stay-at-home orders. Being that I am a member of the media, I have been deemed "essential." Like many of us, I have special documentation from Washington, D.C. that

I Slept Funny And Now I'm Dying

Okay, maybe not "dying," but omg. I woke up and realized it hurts to turn my head. TURN MY HEAD.  I have such a massive knot in the left side of my neck, it would make a sea captain proud...or at least my old Girl Scout troop leader. And why, you ask? Why am I in such horrendous pain? What is the cause of this completely over-dramatic post?  I flipping SLEPT WRONG.  Seriously. My neck hurts, because I apparently slept standing on my head while breakdancing. That's the only position I can think of that would make any sense for how I'm feeling right now. I really don't mind aging, I just mind the "my body is falling apart" part of aging. As a kid, I could sleep on just a blanket on a concrete floor with no pillow and wake up the next day feeling AWESOME. Now, I basically need to have a heating pad on top of a Tempurpedic on top of another Tempurpedic on top of a fluffy cloud just to wake up feeling like I may've been human at on
