10 things Friday and weigh in

I'm still a little off  this week - so forgive my day lateness of TTT.

1.  Gas Rationing.....wth?  I guess its time to learn my license plate number.

2. Day light savings sucks.  I told Mo I wasn't sure I could do another winter here....not sure what that means since I have no way of moving south....

3.   And the number is 166.4 - holy S-H-I-T.  I feel like an epic failure.  

4.  I haven't been working out.  This has to change - I would like to join a class or something but money is pretty tight.

5. Slow cooker Chick Pea Curry ~ damn straight it rocks

6. I'm looking for a job.  Time for a steady paycheck.  I'm not giving up on my career but the reality is that we can not afford to live without my income much longer.

7.  Can someone remind me what I was doing in the past to be successful? 

8.  My heart aches for the victims of the hurricane.  I want to buy blankets and tools and send them to the people who need them.   It kinda sucks being in this situation - too broke to help.  I think I'll offer up some man power and head west this week to see how I can help.

9.  Miss Lorie over at I just ate my willpower      is in Vegas running some crazy race for 36 hours - she is totally a badass!  I cant wait to hear how it goes.

10. Everything is connected. When one thing is out of wack the whole thing is off balance.

10a - I would love to hear how those of you who live in the cold dark north battle the winter blues?  I'm trying to do it without drinking gallons of wine and wearing slippers and robe 24/7

Heres to pulling yourself up when you fall down!   


  1. First, you are not an epic failure. Not even a little. You are human and humans fall. Pick your badass self up, dust your badass self off and be a badass. You have accomplished so much and failure is not one part of it. Not even a little.

    Second, please share your chickpea curry recipe. :-D That sounds delish!

    Third, you are fabulous! And a badass. Keep on keepin' on. :-D

  2. I don't live in the North, but I am going to the tanning bed once a week to try and battle the winter blues. So far it isn't working, but I think it's because I have other things going on that are causing the blues :(

  3. I'm a New England girl, so I get the SAD. I bulk up on my vitamin D supplement for sure. It helps. :-)

  4. A - I truly adore you warrior chick. You are my warrior hero and even without the exercise and the mountain biking etc you are still my warrior. : )
    B - I wish I had the answer for getting back on track. I'm taking a page from Rockband Barbie's book about maybe not worrying to much about the numbers and just trying to do the healthful thing most of the time and just judging by feeling and looking great. *shrug* does the number really matter? Yeah, honestly I would love to see the 100 lb lost mark.
    C - yeah, Kelly's right. You're a badass with your badass self. And did I mention I adore you? *hugs*
