My Awesome Plan of Awesomeness has been over for two weeks now, and I’m taking December “off” from all the Awesome. In January, I’ll be starting up round two of the Awesome, hopefully with some support and company from my cousin! (Oooh L, did you see how I suckered you into that? ;)) December is […]

At the end of August, I signed up for a course through BCIT. I’m pursuing an associate’s certificate in non-profit management through them, and decided to take a class on human resource management. My goal for the class was to get better than 75% overall, and on each of my assignments. Well I did better […]

Yesterday, I told you that in early August, I made a plan. I was tired of living my life passively and decided to take control of my life and my goals. This week marks 4 months since I started my plan, and I’m going to use this week to describe my plan and how it […]

For the month of November, I’ll be participating in NaBloPoMo. This means a blog post every single day! To give myself some help coming up with 30 posts, I’m going to follow a pattern. Monday through Saturday each week, I will blog on a letter of the alphabet; Sundays will be whatever I come up […]



I’m changing my “official” weigh in day from Thursdays to Sundays. I think it will be easier to have one day for everything. I’ve been weighing on Thursdays for myself, Sundays for FatBlokeThin‘s challenge, and now I’m supposed to start Mondays for a Biggest Loser challenge on the 3 Fat Chicks forums. So it’s going […]

September Goals


So it’s almost the end of the month, and time for back-to-school! That means it’s also time to assess how I did on my August goals, and set some new ones for September. Weight goal = 190 by the first day of school (Sept 4th). HAHAHAHAH. That is me laughing at how not even CLOSE […]
