ALL THAT I GAIN WHILE I AM GAINING WEIGHT #fitgirl #confessions #fatgirl #truth

My clothing is now rejecting the body I have become. I no longer fit in my wardrobe, though I can still get most of what I own on somehow. I am still able to wear all clothing with the exception of pants. I can no longer get my jeans on, not even a little. I’ve […]

NEGATIVES ARE THE KEY TO UNLOCKING STRENGTH

#day15 #TeamErin #Oxychallenge At 2:50pm on some Tuesday I am sitting at a local coffee shop with my computer in front of me and a page that is blank, but full of promise. If my life were a book I could write any story and I suppose that is the truth of what this here […]

HIS AND HER CAVES: HOW TO LIVE IN A SPLIT HOUSE

“You took down our kisstletoe,” my heart sank to see he had reached up to remove one of the last few traces of me left in his bedroom, that used to be our room together. He glanced at the mistletoe like it was nothing. “Yeah, it’s not Christmas anymore.” I grew quiet, dim like a […]

IS YOUR WRITING RUINING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS?

Today is day EIGHT of the Oxygen Magazine fitness challenge. I woke up to a mouth that felt like it had been sucking on a sock through slumber. This didn’t just happen in the morning. I had the same experience in the middle of the night, along with toes that started to turn inward as […]

THE TROUBLE WITH BEFORE PICTURES #day5

“How can I be this f*cking stupid!” That was my thought this morning as I realized that I have run out of time. The deadline to upload BEFORE pictures is today. Of course I procrastinated. Why wouldn’t I wait until the clock is about to run out? Tick. Tick. Tick. #whiterabbit   I still have […]

WHO FALLS IN LOVE WITH A CARPET CLEANER?

1:04pm Day three of the fitness challenge feels like more life being more life. I made myself eat lunch, barely. Right now I have a wad of chicken breast sitting on my desk and an apple I started to eat at some point. I could have sworn I grabbed a fresher one, but I suppose […]

THE LOSER PACE OF A WINNER’S RACE

8:09 pm #day2 I don’t think my fitness coach likes me very much. How’s that for ego. There are nearly 2,000 members on our fitness challenge team and today I decided that I am the one that is hated. How stupid is that!! and untrue. Of course she does not hate me. She doesn’t even […]
