My Fitness Goals for 2018: Get Back Into It, Girl!

As I write this, I just polished off some Girl Scout Lemonade cookies dipped in hot decaf tea. Am I proud? No. I’m less than 4 weeks from having my baby, I’m stressed out, and overall health and fitness haven’t been a priority for me in a while. But 2018, you haven’t seen the best …

The Beauty Loser: Finding the “One”

I know what you’re probably thinking. “What is she talking about, finding “The One”?! I thought she found the one, and that he proposed with that awesome nail polish proposal?!” You’re right. But I’m talking about “The One” that comes next after “The One” proposes…finding the perfect wedding dress! I gotta tell you, I can’t share it …

The Beauty Loser Weekly Update 1/24/2012

OK, I seriously lack in recent photos of myself. So I provide you the brochure I got for the surgery I had done yesterday – TA DA! *sigh* I am hoping to include a before/after shot next week. It’s about time for that, there’s definitely a difference! Well, friends. It had to happen. I’ve had it pretty good …

Goodbye, Gall Bladder

I’m never one to pass up an opportunity for occasion-appropriate nail art (World Water Day? World Blood Donor Day? Or how about the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, 2010?). But gall bladder surgery nails? Hmmm. I did have some trepidation. My colleague at work asked me, “are you going to do gall bladder nails?!” And we …

So not winning!

So, Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas! I thought I’d catch you up on all the fun reasons why I’ve not been blogging lately, because I finally have a moment and I feel good enough to sit at the computer. For a bit. I had a gall bladder attack a week and a half ago. In …

On a break but probably not for much longer…

I have hit a wall with blogging, and it has stopped me as hard as if I’d been hit with bricks. I have even put off writing this post for more than a week, the idea of getting in front of my computer for blogging has me so turned off. A reader actually asked me …

The Beauty Loser Weekly Update 11/14/2011

Sing it now: “One of these things is not like the other” Happy Monday, everyone! The last week was quite a challenge, but looking back, I feel like my motivation and desire to be healthier and skinnier made the challenges easy to overcome. There was a spontaneous work dinner, office donuts and office pizza. But …

China Glaze Tarnished Gold

Before I launch into my review, I just wanted to tell you that I apologize, I have not drawn the winner yet for the Sally Hansen LE Salon Effects yet. The week got away from me between work and other things going on, and then with the weekend came a lot of turmoil. This has …

A fresh start

I ran my first half marathon in September, 2006. It was such an awesome moment, crossing the finish line. I had started to gain a little weight back from when I’d lost a bunch in 04-05, but I was still running, and I was athletic. Today, I am back to the weight I was when …
