It's my Monday, and never has there been a better description of myself. I also need about 6 extra hours in the day while we're on the subject. ⌛🧚‍♀️⏳👩🏼‍💻

If I'm ever going to get my anxiety under control without the help of meds, regular exercise is going to be key. Plus, you know, I work at a gym. And I didn't lose over a hundred and fifty pounds just to stall out on the last 50. Bike today then weights...thanks @crwalks for taking time to be my personal fitness guru. #anxietysucks #mentalhealthawareness #workitout #myarmsarealreadysore #fitness #100poundsdown #50lbstogo #workout #doitforyourself #progress #fitnessstory #weightloss #weightlossstory #itsnotalwayseasy #icandoit #fattofit #hardwork

It's officially summer, and what better way to celebrate the longest day of the year than a lovely sunset solstice stroll with two of my Georgia mains, one all the way from Atlanta. #georgiabeaches, #georgiapeaches #solstice #sunset #firstdayofsummer #visittybee #beach #nature #atlantic #ocean #sand #explore #coastalgeorgia

I suppose there are worse things than living in Coastal Georgia. Even with the whole "constant personal sauna" of the summer humidity and a 107 heat index in mid June, at least there's always the beach. 🕶👙🏖 #southernsummer #savannahproblems #isthatsweatorrain #hotasHades #visittybee #beach #thirstythursday #livingthelife #savannah #hot #heatindex #northbeachbarandgrill

If you squint, this Georgia brewery where I had lunch ALMOST looks like it's in my most favorite state of Montana. Almost. #loveGeorgia #loveMontanamore #brewery #georgiabrewery #craftbeer #georgiabrew #50states50beers #explore #georgia #cheers #foodporn #beerporn #nomnom

Will it ever get old that there is a Bulloch County in Georgia? NOPE! I know, I know, Theodore Roosevelt was part of the esteemed Bulloch family, but to me it will always be too close to the British slang for testicles. Dirty South indeed. 😂 #bollocks #bulloch #samedifference #georgiasummer #exploregeorgia #wandering #statesboro #courthouse #architecture #dirtysouth

Official temperature in Statesboro: one degree short of Hell. #georgiasummer #hotasHades

Me: You should clean or something while you're waiting to leave for your doctor's appointment, since you took the day off. Also me: But you have to drive the whole way to Statesboro, so you should probably just continue to lay here on the couch and read national park murder mysteries until it's time to go. 🤷‍♀️📖🗡🕵🏼‍♀️ #booknerd #bookaddict #noshame #cleaningcanwait

Wrapping up what has been a fantastic week with Savannah Fire. Learning Incident Command isn't exactly an action flick, but even when the material is dry I love it. To me it's amazing just to be sharing a classroom with such cool (hot) individuals (y'all KNOW me; you knew it was gonna go there lol). They not only went through the same huge storms I did, but every day of their lives is jumping from one incident to another. And yes, they do rescue cats from trees, even though it ISN'T actually required. And they administer oxygen to dogs and it's the CUTEST. . . Apparently Savannah has one of the highest-ranked Fire Departments in the country, I learned this week and the interwebs confirm. It's not a big city, but this makes sense to me. These days most fires in my orbit are of the huge wildland variety, nothing like a structural fire. But to this town, to my wonderful, wonderful Savannah...here, a structure is so much MORE than just a building. The buildings here breath. They've inhaled the past and they exhale the stories. They aren't always pretty--this city is finally coming to grips with the darker parts of her history but the past still haunts. Slavery happened. It's the reason those breathing mansions even exist in Savannah. But I digress. Idk. Ever since I accidently started a teensy forest fire as a child (true story. #OnlyYou, says the park ranger) I've always been fascinated by fire and the people who spend their lives knowing it so well. Probably also because my dad is a total pyro. But Dad doesn't just love burning things, he loves FIRE. And I guess it spread. 🔥 . . (P.S. my father is not an arsonist. He burns things he has permission to burn. And one time the old Lazy Boy, but don't tell Mom. 😘)

I am reminded that three years ago I was on an epic road trip around the West with my platonic soulmate, Aleksandr. So here's a photo of My Favorite Russian in Arches National Park.
