So here we go. Time to wrap this baby up with post #350! Wow. I’m still a little torn about putting the blog on hold. I think I’ll miss it sometimes. It’s been a great motivator to keep on track. Even if I wasn’t meeting my goals, it kept me accountable to keep trying. Also, […]

So far I’m sold on the whole Blue Apron thing. I quite enjoyed putting the meal together. It’s so nice, all the portions are already figured out, you just have to wash, chop and cook. So…penultimate. What’s that all about? Yeah, I’ve been thinking about this off and on since Thursday. I think I’m done […]

So I’ve got all this food! And I haven’t eaten any of it! D’oh. :) Last night I was just too tired. I actually fell asleep around 7…(week of horrible sleeping). Then I figured, well Friday is better. I’ll be more in the mood to cook to start off the weekend. That didn’t happen either. […]

Today I had my appointment with Tiffany at Mindful Counseling. It was mostly a get-to-know-you, see if it’s a right fit sort of appointment. I think it will be. We talked about what I want out of the counseling and I realized it is going to be a long-term project. I hadn’t quite thought that […]

Today is one of those days I got up and made it to work early and haven’t much left my desk since. So there’s really nothing to write about. I’ve got class in a little bit. And then home… super exciting day! :-) I did have a funny thing when I woke up this morning. […]

If you can believe it, this will be post 345. I am just shy of a year posting on this blog. As the year is winding down I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’ve accomplished and more so what I have not accomplished. I’ve learned a lot this year, but I’ve had a lot […]

Pretty awesome sunset for about a minute while I was stopped at the stoplight on the way to school. Looked down to check the photo, by the time I looked up the color was nearly gone. There was also lots of snow today, but sadly, no photogenic snow, so I didn’t bother with the snowflake […]

About Me

-23.1 pounds, 76.9 to go!

 

Howdy hey there! My name is Maryn. I’m a digital artist who sits at a computer all day. I am horribly addicted to carbs and Diet Coke and very rarely go outside. So yeah, about that, I’ll be making some changes.

I’ve made the very ambitious commitment to lose 100 pounds in 2015. To do that I need to not only make some drastic lifestyle changes, but stick to them long term. That’s where this blog comes in. It’s going to keep me honest by blogging my successes (and my failures) every day. So hop along for the ride. I’m sure it will at least have some pretty pictures to look at.

You can also follow me on Instagram asĀ gomaryn. I tend to ramble, so if you just want pictures, that’s the ticket for you!
