The Thanksgiving we decided to pass on..

leave a comment »


At the current moment, we should be on I-5  to Olympia. But, at the current moment we are sitting on the couch. Everything I’m wearing is keeping me cozy.

This morning, there was fresh snow on the ground. Kevin called his mom and told her we might not make it. She said she understood. She later called to tell us it was warming up and we said we still weren’t coming. We have opted out of doing Thanksgiving this year. We have both had an extremely stressful week and we are both thankful for a day to do nothing. And, we both are working tomorrow.

I’m thankful for so many things… in no order… health.nutty water.being employed.gluten free pillow.pine trees.a car that always shoes.warm socks.a body that showers.teeth.great friends.hoodies.quinoa.a house to live in.a drama  free home.lattes.being able to be me.

Hiya. I haven’t done a lot of listy love in a long time. Here’s a new list of stuff I love…


  • Kevin. The boy put up with me and my family for 7 days in a row! We are happy to be home and back to our normal scheduled programs. ♥
  • Abigail. Hello dog! I had a dream about you while we were in Canada. I woke up and was sad that you weren’t there. ♥
  • yoga. I had dreams about doing yoga while I was in Canada as well. I’m upping this to twice a week. Super stoked! ♥
  • Eve. Friend, yoga instructor, walking buddy, and fellow Weight Watcher. Also, at 52 she is a total fitness daredevil and really inspiring.♥
  • weighting 190! and, no rounding.
  • lululemon athleticaScuba Hoodie. I bought this as a 190lb reward, I want to live in it! This will not be making the rounds at work.
  • Damn You Auto Correct! via Door Sixteen. Remember iPhone, I want shit, not shot.
  • Lush. But only while I’m in Canada.
  • broccoli
  • how much changing my pillow case every night has helped my skin
  • pu-erh tea

  • sparkly eye shadow
  • snowy forecasts

  • buddha bowls. I love this for some reason but can’t justify the price.
  • chai lattes
  • christmas mugs
  • water! I didn’t like the taste of the water in Whistler, I was SOOO thirsty when I came home.
  • hazelnuts
  • home
  • Uggs. I still stand by them. They keep my feet super warm, just not very dry.
  • Taste Nirvana’s Coconut Water with Pulp. Great after a good 10 mile walk.

Fat Doctors?

leave a comment »

Oh hai! Long time no see…

So. I just spent a week with my family in Canada. Fun, relaxing, and lets me know how happy I am that I don’t spend ample time with the fam all at once. My brother has been dating a really nice and quite gal for a while and she came along as well. She’s going to med school…

So here’s my huge question…

Would you take medical advice from an obese doctor?

As some one who has lost a lot of weight and dealt with some medical issues that my doctors seemed unable to help me with, my answer would be a big NO.
