  • UK Called…So Off I Went

    uk-calling

    Hey hey my friends, a little update for you…I’m in the UK!  Swindon, England to be exact.  I’m here on an extended business trip for six weeks.  My longest business trip has been three weeks, but I’m not worried.  I’ve been to Swindon on business a few times before, enough that it feels like a […]

  • Changing It Up

    computer-code

    Sooo…..if you’ve been following the blog for a while, you may have noticed that I changed the design.  Again.  I can explain, I swear. When I first started writing the blog, it was really all about the writing—sharing my feelings about my weight and weight loss.  As I continued to write, I become infatuated with […]

  • Let’s Be Honest

    writing

    I have struggled for a while over the fate of Victoriously.  Having not written anything in months, and not feeling a desire to write, I decided that I would pack it in and leave the blogging to those who were truly passionate about it. When I started letting people close to me know that I […]

    There is no such thing as failure or rejection because we are simply here to learn and grow. – Mastin Kipp The time has come my friends. I have been half-assing it for far too long. In the two years that I have been blogging, I have accomplished nothing—literally nothing. I am exactly where I […]

  • Eyes Wide Open

    Every once in a while I witness something so bold and so daring that it knocks me back about three feet and shakes me to my very core. We’ll call it having an Oprah “Aha moment”. That moment when you realize that you were missing the point all along. For a little while now I’ve […]

    Dear Me

    In honour of International Women’s Day, YouTube launched a campaign called Dear Me, a chance for women to impart their experience and wisdom to their teenaged selves.  The letter is supposed to take on the form of a video, but since I’m not a YouTuber, I’ve written mine for the blog. Dear Me, As I […]

    Across-the-Pond

    Exciting news happening in the Victoriously world!  I’m headed to the UK for a couple of weeks for a work trip.  The prospect of travelling right now both excites and terrifies me.  I am excited because I love to travel, and I adore my co-workers at my company’s UK office.  Getting a chance to work in […]

  • Valentines Day Massacre

    Valentines Heart

    I typically dislike Valentines Day.  Mostly, because I am always single when the Hallmark-FTD-created day comes around.  Even though I am once again single this year, I avoided singing the single-girl blues by making plans with my very good friend Randy.  With both of us single on V-day, it was the perfect excuse to get out there […]

  • A Charmed Life

    Weekly and Charm

    Wednesdays are my normal weigh-in days at Weight Watchers.  I know the middle of the week seems like an odd time to weigh in, but there is a method to my madness. When I joined Weight Watchers previously (the many, many times previously), I would always attend meetings and weigh in on Saturdays.  My brain […]
