By the way
Did my RDW DVD tonight. NAILED IT!
Since I have a new phone with way awesomer recording capabilities, I’m considering restarting my derby YouTube channel up again…
So today, endurance day, is the day I decided would be a good day to break in the skates I won at Rollercon (I know, I know…) Of course, I’m still wobbly on my skates and new skates don’t help. At all. One of the girls noted my wheels were “probably the reason I felt like I was going to eat shit” (her words) because, silly me, I assumed since we were outside, I’d use my outside wheels and...
Power came back on two hours ago…I was too busy blowing out my candle and enjoying electricity again to update y’all.
Power is out on our whole block
…….and you get to know about it because I obsessively charge my phone.

'CAUSE THE PASSION AND PAIN ARE GONNA KEEP US...
It was beautiful. Even though I’d brought my gear, I really had no intentions of skating. I hadn’t skated in several, several months and didn’t really feel like making an ass of myself. Instead, I watched everyone warm up, stretch, and do crazy on-skates exercises that I would not have had the balance for. After gentle yet unyielding coaxing by some team members (and my friend,...

Let’s be beautiful together, shall we? Happy New Year, everyone!
So I had this dream...it's nowhere near as epic as...
In the dream I was putting my derby name on different shirts (possibly for RollerCon?), but the problem was I couldn’t decide WHICH name to put on each shirt and I was beginning to panic because I think I was running out of time or self-imposed pressure (one of the two) and all the shirts ended up being different colors with different names. I think the pressure’s getting to...
don’t know if i’m genuinely not tired or if i’m subconsciously fighting sleep because i know tomorrow i have my diabetic eye exam with THE EYE DILATING DROPS (3 SETS WHYYYYYYY) and the sooner i go to sleep the sooner i’ll have to deal with THAT madness
dread-alert: Really want to go to RollerCon, but I won’t know anyone there. GO ANYWAY. I went by myself last year despite my social anxiety and not even being on a league and ended up a) meeting up with people I met online (including Tumblr); and b) making new friends there. And you’ll be having so much fun and learning soooooooo much, it’ll be worth the trip! DO EEEET
Also, I can't wait for January.
That’s when I’ll be checking out my first So Cal Renegade Rollergirls practice! I’m super excited and I don’t feel all the pressure and anxiety I felt before. Just some of it. But in a good way.
After much deliberation and list making and...
…I have decided to go to RollerCon 2013. This time I will be getting a Skater pass, though, as I feel I don’t need an MVP pass quite yet. And hopefully this time I will either a) go with people I know; or b) know people once I get there (though I did run into a few people last year from online and made new friends!). More lists must be made. Things must be bought. PLAN PLAN PLAN...
want to go out and get food with someone and just talk. lately, i’ve been listening to everyone talk about themselves. which is fine, i like listening to people’s stories, but i also like to talk about what’s going on with ME. wish i had a friend. alone.

Gettin' stuff done.
E-mailed local derby league and got some info from a very nice woman. Felt very welcomed immediately. Messaged my cousin on Facebook who works at Skate Depot and asked when is a good day to go. Worked on breaking in my skates as much as I could (i.e. wore them for an hour). Ate food. OK, this may not sound like a lot to you guys, but I’ve been cooped up in my room under the blankets...
Put on my skates even though it’s dark outside. Sat in my room in my skates. Sent an e-mail to another local league. Freaked out about said e-mail due to social anxiety. Thought I should work out to pass the time, but instead got online, Tumbld and freaked out about e-mail. Thought, “MAN, I love these skates!” Thought about needing a camera for new blogs. Thought about...
Skating for a "broken" league
…and I really hate using that word. This was a status posted by one of the team pages of my home league, Long Beach Roller Derby: We would like to announce, that we are no longer skating for Long Beach Roller Derby. While some of us will be retiring officially, others will be moving onto surrounding roller derby leagues, and we are sure our paths will cross in the derby universe in the...
So it turns out a lot of the members of my late...
At least one for sure works at Skate Depot (maybe two), a local skating rink. Holy crap. How did I not know this. Well, I know how…but still! Skating’s in my blood. Must remember that next time I tell myself I suck.
Anyone use Nexercise?
Furthermore, does anyone know how to ADD people on Nexercise??
Self-Sabotage Patterns Prevail
Ugh. So disgusted with myself. Training physically abandoned (though I think about it every day). Diet completely screwed because I can’t go grocery shopping. Need motivation and/or encouragement. Can’t seem to find it within myself. I’ve disappointed everyone, most of all myself. Depression and anxiety is just getting the best of me, I guess. Ugh. ….. At least I...
I am writing this as a woman 26 POUNDS LIGHTER.
That’s right. According to my scale (and I weighed myself 3 times to make sure) and MyFitnessPal (where I’ve been keeping track of my weight) I’ve lost 26 whole pounds from my RDWC starting weight of 266. I am now exactly 240 lbs. I can’t believe this is happening. And all the feelings I’m having. That I’ve been having. Everything from ‘when is it...
WHEN YOU GET LEAD AND THE PACK IS STILL CHASING...
fallenbettie replied to your post: Couch to 5k Update I really like the couch to 5k program. I use a podcast while I do the runs and it has really helped. I should be done with it, but I was sick a few times so I just started week 8. You’ll be amazed at how well you can progress.’ I’m loving it so far! I only did two days of the 30/60 and I’m already up to 45 seconds…which...
Couch to 5k Update
Since I started, I’ve been alternating 30 seconds of jogging with 60 seconds of walking for 20 minutes after a 5 minute warmup walk (the site says to start at 60/90 - tried that and it was too much). Today I did 45/60…and didn’t die! Well, almost. I could only do 10 minutes, but still…today 10 minutes, 15 on Wednesday! :)

I’m now at 250 lbs. Yes, that was ages ago. But I’ve lost weight! And the trend will continue…! It’s so much more fun being healthy! :)
thequeenofslytherin: 2012 will be over in about 4 months how did this happen Wha-WHO DID THIS?
Today, I did it.
Tomorrow, God willing, I WILL DO IT AGAIN. And if I don’t get tomorrow? I accomplished today. And that’s what matters.
I’m now on Nexercise. If you’re into that sorta thing.
Finally DID work out.
I. Feel. AWESOME. I’m writing this as a reminder to myself next time I say I don’t want to work out.
