I Need To Learn How To Cook
Friday, September 09, 2016      7 comments

I'm realizing that most of the foods we cook (DH does most of the cooking) are high in fat, grease, calories, everything! Which is one of the reasons I'm eating differently from the family, but, it is also one of the reasons I've ended up with a... Read more

So I started my virtual hike of the Appalachian Trail yesterday on walking4fun.com (thank you Sunny!) and walked 2.3 miles yesterday. The pictures are so beautiful, I can't wait till I can hike the AT for real! Truly inspiring. I don't want to j... Read more

Getting Help
Sunday, September 04, 2016      9 comments

I talked it over with DH and... I'm going to seek professional help for my weight loss. I'm spinning my wheels here and getting nowhere. I'm going to go see a registered dietitian and exercise specialist. Some may object to this, but I've been f... Read more
Day... whatever/Long-term goals
Saturday, September 03, 2016      11 comments

I'm tired of keeping track of the days since I started. It's a reminder of my failure to achieve my goal. I'm not going to start over counting, I'm just going to stop counting. I have to say I have often used it as an easy way to come up with an... Read more
Day 599/ Just Breath

Today's Spark Coach challenge is to not watch TV... at all, not on your phone or laptop or TV. Not a problem for me, I don't watch TV that often anyway. I did just binge watch a show called Limitless (very cool, but gets weird) but I don't norma... Read more

Dr. visit went well yesterday, she is convinced I have sleep apnea and that and my anxiety are what is causing my symptoms. From everything she has said I'm leaning in that direction too. She ordered some labs, just in case it is something else.... Read more

I'm starting the SP meal plan today, just eating regular, healthy foods. Some of it looks good, some do not. I'll tweak as I go along. For example I sw... Read more
Day 595/SP Meal Plan/Fad Diets
Sunday, August 28, 2016      6 comments

We went to church as a family today. I didn't particularly feel like going, but it was nice to be able to sit with DH. He's usually up on stage with the band so I have to sit alone. My sleep study was denied by my insurance. They are waiti... Read more
Day 594/symptoms
Saturday, August 27, 2016      7 comments

My mornings still need to straighten out, I tried to get up at 0500 like I was before, in order to work out, but nothing-doing. I could not pull myself out of my dream, and I was so tired. I slept in an extra hour and a half. Right on time for m... Read more
Day 588/ Soapbox
Sunday, August 21, 2016      7 comments

So, about anxiety and panic attacks or general anxiety… “It’s not a Matthew 6 or Philippians 4 issue—it’s a physiological issue.” (-Adam Ford) I do worry about things, but generally speaking anxiety/panic (in this context) is a physiologica... Read more

Day 585
Thursday, August 18, 2016      2 comments

Yesterday was good but rough. My anxiety was really bad and being around a ton of people I don't know didn't help at all (homeschool co-op). My social anxiety had my brain stuttering. Didn't help that since I was in the hallway for 3 hours I got... Read more
Day 584

I have little to update. My anxiety has been severe these last couple of days and it drains me so that I don't get much done. I went to office depot and the library yesterday - each one is in a different direction from the house, so it was a lon... Read more
