Keep On Keeping On

I struggle with body image. If you’ve read past blogs, this is no surprise. Call it a side effect of my anxiety medication. Call it lifestyle changes. Call it whatever you want. But every day when I look in the mirror, a part of me is uncomfortable with the reflection I see.

If I tally the amount of sleep I have gotten in the past two days, it would amount to 20 hours and that’s purely napping.

Too bad there are literally hundreds of other things I would rather be doing than studying infants and how they develop. Here are some examples:  Read the rest of this entry

New Blog!

This blog post will be short and sweet BUT big news! I have a new blog for my weight loss journey. You don’t have to follow it. It’s more for me to get motivated and see changes. As my dosage for PD is back down to 25 mg, now is the time to do this. 

I’m ready. 

Here’s the link to my new blog: http://bebraveandchange.wordpress.com/
