Autumn frame of mind
Thursday, October 08, 2020      5 comments

October already or finally? This year. I don't even know. Exhausted. Anxiety Ridden. Joyous. Fearful. Overwhelmed. Happiness. Change. A whirlwind of emotions and we still have two months left. So, part of me of course is grateful ... Read more
Winds of...

The winds of change or frustration or exhaustion I don't know what to call this entry. I finished August out with no gusto. I didn't get to my 60 days of exercise until today... Saturday, I don't even remember what I did; I ... Read more
All or Nothing... When is Enough Enough?
Tuesday, August 25, 2020      3 comments

As my last entry demonstrates, I may struggle a bit or more than a bit with what is enough... I so want to achieve my goals-- to be healthy, to reach a certain pants size, weight on the scale as soon as possible, that I sometimes get for a lack ... Read more

I have been tracking my exercise since breaking up with the albatross of the scale; I have a graph I made up in my office. I'm on day 53 of exercise. I really want to get to my 60 days (and beyond). ... Read more
The Hampster Wheel of Dieting and Self-Reflection
Monday, August 17, 2020      3 comments

I've been trying to lose weight as long as I can remember. It's a tedious, exhausting realization that I spent so much of my life chasing the next lost pound, counting the next calorie, depriving myself of meals or entire days of food because I... Read more

Goodness. I can't believe how long it's been since I've been active here. I've been tracking some and checking in but not really maintaining my activity here. I am going to try to be better about it. May 7th, I had enough of feeling like ... Read more
Well, where have you been?!!

I haven't been around much-- I stayed on eating plan for several months-- right around the last time I posted-- I found out... We're EXPECTING. I guess the eating plan not only helped me feel better, lose weight, but balanced my crazy hormones ... Read more

Can I just tell you, this freaking plan WORKS. Have I been perfect?! Nope. Have I felt deprived? Nope Have I felt better than I have in years? YES! Who knew that all I had to do was balance my food intake to reclaim my health, both physical... Read more
Day 22
Tuesday, March 14, 2017      5 comments

I was feeling really discouraged this morning. The scale was essentially the same with a few .5 pound changes the last four or so days. Then I updated my tracker-- 5 more pounds!?! So that makes 11 pounds down in 22 days. I just want fast... Read more

18 days in. Yes, I am 18 days in. I can't tell you how long it has been that I've stuck to healthy this consistently. To top it off, I do not feel deprived or like I am dieting at all. Not.At.All. I never bought into the carb hype. I... Read more

Wednesday, March 01, 2017      3 comments

I cannot believe it is already March of 2017! The time is FLYING! After the flu kicked my butt for over a week, I gave in and went low carb. I've never done this before. Monday, 2/20 I started-- slowly but surely, making choices to avoid wh... Read more

The depression and anxiety reared it's ugly head and was so profound. I made the 'executive' decision to stop taking the progesterone. It took over 1 week, but I started to "feel normal" (whatever normal is) again. I had a follow up with my DR... Read more
Successes 1/8-1/14
Saturday, January 14, 2017      2 comments

So many times I've fallen into negative or 'faulty thinking'. As a person in the helping professions, I was able to help-help-help but never implement in my own life. This happens in this field, but after a few years out of direct service in ch... Read more

2016 wasn't the best. Lots of loss. Lots of health issues. Lots of anxiety. Lots of doubt. Lots of turmoil. I woke up with a newfound interest in bettering my life. Taking on the issues and addressing "the elephants" in the ro... Read more

Saturday, August 06, 2016      2 comments

It is August 6th, already. Where has the time gone?! June. Well, let's just say that everything kind of fell apart. My grandfather has Stage IV cancer and (against the advice of the doctor and our family) underwent chemotherapy and had... Read more
