About Me

My Photo
Well let’s see. I was born during the Blizzard of 1978 in Lima, Ohio. I have lived in Ohio all my life. I like it here. We have corn fields instead of oceans, overpasses instead of mountains and fog instead of smog. Sure it's not the promise land, but sometimes one doesn't need postcard worthy beauty on the outside to have it elsewhere. I'm a writer for fun, a Paralegal for profession, and while one pays the bills, one feeds my imagination, or perhaps my imagination feeds my writing...either way, Writing is as much of who I am as the color of my eyes, or the way that I smile. Blogs are great communication tools, and I'm here to communicate with YOU...yeah, you who's reading this right now....*assuming anyone's out there* *crickets chirp* Alrightee then, IF anyone should find themselves here, be it by accident or on purpose, welcome, glad to have you aboard. Throw anchor, stay awhile! Sunshine & Smiles, ~Heather Lynn~

"I'm having a relationship with my Pizza..."

I have a lover, and his name is Pizza. He's hot, and sometimes spicy, cheesy, fulfilling and sometimes is the only one I want to hang out with in bed on a Friday night after a particularly rough week.

It's scary how close the following clip is to my mental state sometimes!

But while Julia's out buying bigger jeans, I'm looking to downsize mine.  Not because I am ashamed of my body, I've learned a long time ago that I'll never be a size 2, me as a skeleton wouldn't fit into a size two!

Today is day #1 of diet attempt #2 for the year 2012.

Thinking back to the 11 pounds I lost earlier this year, I'm sad that all the headway I made, was lost after the car crash I sustained back in January which has left me at times, a shell of who I used to be.  Chronic pain and headaches are no way to go through life, that much I can assure you.

Two years ago, I wore a bikini top in public, I'm ready to be that brave again, and I have 39 days to get back to where I can feel comfortable doing so again.  It's 39 days until I have an event I would like to display that bravery.  Will I make it, I don't know, am I going to try to, you bet your bottom dollar I am.

It's not going to be easy, and I will likely be one cranky redhead for the next 39 days, but crankiness can be soothed away with success, and I'm counting on that helping me through.  I did it before, and hopefully I can do it again.

I can't exercise like I used to due to the pain I'm in.  And the complete and total havoc working out causes my body every time I try to do the things I used to doesn't help either, but I'm going to give it my best shot.  Optimisms key I think.

So if the tone around here is ever so skewed momentarily, bare with me, and let me apologize for any bitterness that you might hear underlying in my words, in advance! 
I'll do my best to not be a total crankypants!

I had nine almonds for breakfast, and so it begins!

Wish me luck if you will.

  1. Here's a couple funnies that came to mind as I read this. I think I had a small orgasm yesterday when I finally succumbed to scratch at a rash on my arm...I kind of blacked out for a minute and forgot where I was....Matt asked if I needed to be alone because the kids were just staring at me waiting for my turn at UNO.....lol. Ok, so my next thing is I saw on the news a study done on a group of dieters showed having your desert for breakfast helped them stave off cravings the rest of the day...and I was like "that's a diet for me!". I am on day two. Yesterday I had birthday cake, today I am having six mini snickers :-) so wish me luck! I give myself to Sat. What do you think? Ang

  2. ha,ha....i had an itch like that on the bottom of my foot the other day, I tell you there was nothing like it...however I do think itch induced-mini-orgasms are illegal in the presence of small children in the state of wisconsin aren't they? ;)

    six mini snickers for breakfast?! what is that like..*does the math* well that's only 330 calories, quite frankly I'd MUUUCH rather have your diet than mine, I ate a slim jim for breakfast! I'm about so sick of meat I just see a cow and I want to vomit! I really need to get to the store and buy some fresh veggies, the colorful sweet bell peppers make me happy just looking at them.

    In happy news, the new dr. i'm seeing seems to be making progress, I'm hoping that pretty soon I'll be able to get feeling well enough to add back exercise to my routine, and that will really help. I can finally use those new nikes to their full capacity. Right now I just wear them when I go to the dr. They make me feel sporty, even though right now, I'm not. :)



Leave me a message! I'd love to hear your thoughts...AND...while I may be slow, 99% of the time, I'll leave you a comment back! So get interactive would ya!? :) xoxoxxo, ~hl~
