Fear the Blog Reaper

Hey all!  Life has been kinda busy lately but I’ve got a few minutes so, here I am!

So the other day I finally broke down and bought a couple pairs of jeans. They were size 16. You know what? I don’t freaking care what size they are, they are comfortable!! There is nothing more irritating than wearing jeans that are too stinking tight. I’m not talking about jeans that are a little snug (Debby and Vickie I’m looking at you), but when a pair of jeans has the power to ruin your whole day because you are so self conscious in your too-tight jeans, well then sisters, it’s time to buy a new pair that FIT. I’ve gotten so many compliments on these jeans in the last week that I keep asking myself why I waited so long.  And did I mention that I bought a couple new tops as well? So I’m sporting the “walk” these days – you know that swagger you get when you are feeling fine? Yeah, that’s me, sashaying all over the place in my threads. All I can say is, thank God for bigger sizes!

I’ve got a couple of product reviews and some giveaways (!) coming up – I just need to find the time to sit down and write out the reviews. I always procrastinate on things like this, but I’m working on NOT procrastinating so much, so I hope to have these banged out by this weekend. So keep checking back for the opportunity to win something (see what I did there? I’m keeping you in suspense so you’ll come back and read my blog! Ooooh, I’m so crafty!!)

These days I’m feeling…neutral, which is a lot better than I’ve been feeling these last 8 months or so. I’m on my way back out of the hole, slowly but surely.  I’m just kind of going with the flow lately – eating what sounds good, and what sounds good is not pizza and candy,amazingly enough, but fresh veggies and nourishing foods. So that’s weird for me, but hey, I’ll take it. Same with exercise – I do it when I can, but I’ve stopped obsessing about how I”m NOT working out like I think I “should”. Going with the flow, folks – I highly recommend it.

I’m working on some things right now with my food etc, but I don’t want to post it here because of the The Blog Curse. After a few days I’ll let you know, but right now I’m keeping mum. I’m also doing this because I want to start writing about what I’ve DONE instead of what I INTEND to do, because I’m not always so good with the following-through-with-my-intentions thing. So I have to save up some stuff so I can say “hey look what I did!”.

I think that I am the Black Plague of Blog Death – just when I find a blog that I really love, that blogger inevitiably says “I think I need to take a blogging break”. This has happened at least 3 times in the last few weeks. One of those bloggers is Mish at Eating Journey (I can so identify with her struggles!) and another one is Confessions of a Compulsive Eater. The third one is The Diet Naked Blog. I’m not kidding, within weeks of finding these blogs, they have all checked out.  So if I read your blog regularly, you might want to be careful. Apparently I am the Grim Reaper of Blogs.  Sorry.

Hello, my name is Jill and I will be taking your blog today.


Okay well, that’s all the rambling I can come up with today. Any one else find and then lose a great blog lately? It sucks, doesn’t it?  😦

  1. LOVE jeans that fit right. I only have one pair of jeans that fit perfect that I love so much (Coldwater Creek thrift store,) and those ones I mentioned the other day, I found toward the bottom of the drawer, and they fit. I didn’t even remember getting them (also thrift.) They just weren’t cut as perfect for my shape as my favorite jeans, thus the feeling fat in them. I’m gonna have to get a new pair pretty soon. Time to hit up my favorite ‘up scale’ thrift store LOL.

    I’m glad you’re feeling good about yourself. That’s so important. And I can totally relate to wanting to try something before you blog about it.

  2. My blog’s not dead yet! It feels fine! [singing] It feels happy…it feels happy!

    Hurrah for clothes that fit!!! And oooo, I love my Coldwater Creek jeans, too! Pear-shaped people, rejoice, because the 10″ standard difference between waist and hips in women’s pants works in your favor. Apple-shaped me usually has pants with either baggy butt or tight around the tummy.

    Glad you’re feeling good, and I’m looking forward to hearing about your product reviews and the like!

  3. Maybe it’s time for me to buy the next size up in jeans (dang it!) because I dislike the breaking-in period after each jean washing — the time of freshly washed jeans that squish the muffin top over the edge and make the rest of the body look like it’s gonna pop! After a day of waddling in them, the threads finally loosen up, but heaven forbid I have to tie a shoe.

    It seems like my blog is inactive because, well, it is. I feel so guilty taking blog time. Even now. But, it’s a moment AWAY if you know what I mean. And I wanted to check in with you.

    5 year old walked in. Moment gone. Take care!
