Monday so Monday

My newspaper is doing a Best of 2009 special section. I agreed to do all the stories (about 200 words each) for this. I don't have a car right now so this will keep me busy and allow me to pull my weight. I think things are getting closer to resolving the car situation. I have start wa
lking at lunch. It is not for health reasons but just so I can get away from the newspaper. I eat my lunch outside while reading the newspaper or a magazine. The weather has been awesome. After eating, I go for a short walk or just people watch. It recharges me so I can finish the day.

I miss therapy so I am patiently waiting for my insurance to kick in. I am looking for eating disorder specialist around here. I am taking things day by day so I won't overwhelm myself. Tonight is the season premiere of Gossip Girl. I am celebrating with Domino's pizza.

For the first time in a longtime, I watched the MTV VMAs. Kanye West is such a jerk. What he did to Taylor Swift was just wrong. Why didn't he let her have her moment. I am so glad that Beyonce gave up her time so Taylor could have her moment. And I don't believe his apology for a moment.

Daily Dose

1. Eating lunch outside is the best.
2. Taking time to enjoy the moment.


  1. Ooh, Domino's pizza sounds so good right now! Is "Gossip Girl" good? I've heard it is, but I haven't seen t. I saw the YouTube clip with Kanye West being a jerk. What nerve! Beyonce was really classy about it.
    When I worked at the office, I used to love getting out for lunch and people watching. It was my favorite part of the day. I'm glad you have a nice routine down. The best of 2009 sounds like quite a project! Keep us posted :)

  2. Hello!

    I recently found your blog on, amongst other things, your recovery from an eating disorder, and I wanted to reach out. I’m the blog coordinator for We’re currently recruiting people to write a weekly blog post about their various health conditions and I thought you might be interested.

Everyday Health has over 25 million monthly unique visitors to their website, and there is a lot of potential exposure and traffic to come from blogging with the market leader in online health information. It’s also an excellent platform to promote awareness about eating disorders, and any cutting edge research or advice.

Let me know if this is something that you’re interested in and might like to talk more about.
 I enjoyed reading some of your old posts, and I think you have a unique perspective that Everyday Health readers would love for you to share.

Thanks so much!
