Teenage Mutant Ninja Marla? Or, Maybe I’m Shadowcat?

I have a genetic mutation. It is not the intangible phasing of Shadowcat (one I might choose if given a choice). Less exciting, mine is a hereditary blood-clotting mutation. I don’t think “throwing clots” is listed in any X-Men superpowers. Oh whoopty do. I think if they did extensive DNA testing on more people, they … More Teenage Mutant Ninja Marla?

My Only Backslide Will be on a Slip ‘n Slide (Fitness Friday)

No going back. No backslide. No relapse. Ha. No way. Of course I’ll have times I slip up, gain a pound when I’m not paying attention. But I’m talking about the “big stuff.” As I reach a smaller size, I am eliminating ALL the previous size clothes from my wardrobe. Most are being donated. Favorites … More My Only Backslide Will be on a Slip ‘n Slide (Fitness Friday)

Wish Me Luck: Training at Muscle Beach

Yikes! I have no idea what to expect from this morning. I’m headed out to meet a trainer at Muscle Beach. I thought this might be a nice idea for a blog, but the closer I get to my training time, the more I wonder, “What the hell was I thinking?

I’m sitting here typing during what has to be one of the worst premature atrial contraction attacks in a long while.

Technical Difficulties and Marla Meltdown. The Computer-Brain Metaphor

What else is new? Really, who would I be without my crazy-beautiful rollercoaster of emotion? More on that next week. First, if you are reading this in your email inbox, thank you. I really appreciate that you enjoy this blog enough to have it delivered daily. There are only a handful of other blogs that … More Technical Difficulties and Marla Meltdown.

21 Days Without Sex!!?!?!?!?!?

Sugar! I meant sugar! Darnit, how could I ever confuse sex with sugar? Sheesh! Oh, right. Because aside from the obvious sugar-sex metaphor (if it’s not obvious, bless your heart!) in my mind, sugar is the culinary equivalent of sex. It’s like if (*pornstar) Bree Olson were my lover and I’m suddenly asked to kick … More 21 Days Without Sex!!?!?!?!?!?
