Dark & Twisty

My friend gently reminded me that it's been over a week since I've blogged. I just haven't had much to share lately.

I've been in a little bit of a funk. "Dark and twisty" is what I like to call it. Lots of stress at work, trying to get through school work, not feeling especially great and a few bouts of low self-esteem have piled up on me lately.

So yesterday, after a particularly low moment, I felt like I've just had enough of feeling like a sluggish, flabby downer. I haven't been eating well and I've really slacked off in the exercise department.

And it shows. Not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, and so on. Those closest to me know that I am much easier to tolerate when I have a regular exercise and rest plan. Without it, let's just say I can be a bit unpleasant.

I am on My Fitness Pal now, and plan on tracking every sip and crumb that passes my lips, as well as my exercise. I even have a buddy there to go through this with me. My first goal is to lose at least 7 pounds by May 1st.

For the next few weeks, I'll share my progress and my meltdowns (I had an epic one yesterday).


  1. I think I'm going to start using dark and twisty now. That totally sums up how I feel on many days too! I'm on my fitness pal also and when I actually use it it works!! I can totally relate to this post!

  2. I got "dark & twisty" from Grey's Anatomy a season or 2 ago. Seems to fit many situations.
