I have been sticking to my plan of walking 2 miles every day, which is awesome (of course I have the negative mind chatter of YOU SHOULD BE DOING MORE! WHY DONT YOU RUN YOUR FAT ASS!!! constantly). <BR> <BR> Foodwise, eh. I've been pretty alright about tracking most things and generally sticking to my calorie guidelines. Last night we ordered chinese takeaway and not being used to such greasy, sugary, salty food I felt pretty awful t... Fri, 23 Sep 2011 13:58:46 EST It has been 2 years!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3239675 It's been 2 freaking years since I was last on SP. I'm slightly fatter. I have to reset my ticker, hehe. <BR> But I think I am happier :) I have spent the last two years acquainting myself with raw foods and transitioning slowly. <BR> I've also gained quite a bit of knowledge in the realm of wild edibles, so yay! <BR> I decided to come back to see what I am eating because I think I have an allergy of some kind that I haven't been able to figure out and I can't afford the doctor at the mom... Mon, 17 May 2010 17:03:39 EST Body Love http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1294676 So, I haven´t been very good recently about keeping up with my SP details. ´m not inputting my calories or even really participating in my groups which I love. <BR> <BR> It´s because I´m struggling with two main themes here in my life...weight loss vs. acceptance of what is. <BR> <BR> It feels to me that when I focus on the weight loss aspect of this journey that i´m not actually loving myself as I am NOW. I´ve always struggled with loving myself, feeling worthy enough, feeling attractive... Thu, 26 Jun 2008 06:40:42 EST Ugh! It´s out of control... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1273116 So a few days back, I quit my raw food challenge. It was a rash decision, spur of the moment, and I was almost finished anyway. <BR> <BR> It was becoming a serious chore whereas before I was enjoying it a lot. Considering my issues with food, I thought ok, if it´s not feeling good, then don´t do it. <BR> <BR> So what happened....about four days of total anarchy is what happened. <BR> Not only haven´t I eaten well AT ALL, but I haven´t even been accountable for what ive eaten. Raw food i... Mon, 16 Jun 2008 11:35:30 EST Wild Greens http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1257003 Today we went and did a little urban foraging :) <BR> <BR> We got loaded up on dandelion greens, plantain and clover. I had some dandelions in my spring rolls earlier and I´m planning to have a smoothie later with banana, strawberry and a mix of the wild greens...yum! <BR> <BR> We have absolutely no place for a garden as we live in a box in the sky, but as I think it is of the utmost importance that we learn a little about how to feed ourselves for the coming revolution, we are growing som... Sun, 8 Jun 2008 12:21:00 EST Time to Goal, drinking, community http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1256557 So yesterday, I used this online calculator thingie that works out based on your daily calorie deficit, how long it will take you to reach your goal. For me, with an average calorie deficit of 600 calories, it should take 6 months and 3 days. Now I know I have to take it with a grain of salt, but really??? 6 months to lose 28 pounds??? <BR> <BR> I know that patience is a virtue I have to cultivate, and I am committed to this for the long term so even if it took 2 years to do it, well the... Sun, 8 Jun 2008 07:15:18 EST eating with enjoyment http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1227444 So, I´ve been doing a 30 day raw food challenge. I´ve known about raw foods for about a year now, and since then have been on and off, and on the off times completely kicking myself in the ass about not doing it when I know it´s really the best thing for me. I think two weeks has been my golden period and I really haven´t been able to break past that point. <BR> <BR> Well, I said enough is enough. I´m not going to look at is as forever, i´m going to say 30 days...and see what happens. All... Sat, 24 May 2008 18:16:59 EST It´s a journey, isn´t it? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1155233 This weekend has been really hard on me. For obvious, tangible, understandable reasons like the fact that it has been raining nonstop. Or that we are broke and have been broke for months now. We bought plane tickets to go to the States this summer, and it totally wiped us out. We haven´t recovered yet, either. So the inability to go out for a meal, or to a movie, or even the inability to buy the ingredients I need to make a lovely meal at home seriously weighs on me. I´d really like a v... Sun, 20 Apr 2008 16:48:39 EST back...with a vengeance? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=589466 I haven´t blogged here in a very very long time. In fact, I haven´t input my food counts on SP reliably in about 3 weeks. I´m starting again today with that. I´ve eaten foods that weren´t the best choices, and I cooked with olive oil a few times this past weekend, but I think I have done much better than in the past. I haven´t completely binged and I belive I do eat quite healthily. <BR> <BR> I´m still not exercizing though. To be honest, I AM losing weight, albeit very very slowly and ... Mon, 4 Jun 2007 06:52:56 EST Earth Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=525077 So today is Earth Day, huh? We were told about an Earth Day manifestation thing in Madrid, so I woke up a little happy. I was excited about being with other people who like me, give a shit about important things. We got to the plaza where this thing was supposedly happening and there were about 30 people standing around listening to some guy playing guitar. Okay fine, but there were also about 15 of the guardia civil, 3 huge tanks and a police helicopter flying overhead. WTF?? I knew Mad... Sat, 21 Apr 2007 16:40:02 EST bad girl http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=489783 I did really really really freaking bad today. Almost 2500 calories. I was so greedy and to tell the truth I´m really ashamed of myself. I´ve been doing so well, and to have a day like this really sucks. <BR> I also haven´t exercized all week. I really really need to do better.

I very much wanted to get out of the city and into nature, do a little hiking and picnicing in the mountains. Due to the fact that it takes 2 hours by train which I was unwilling to do and the unwillingness of friends to be considerate on our behalf sort of killed that idea. <BR> <BR> I baked for the first time since joining SP. I made fat free banana date walnut muffins, which I figured to be a healthy cho... Sun, 11 Mar 2007 14:38:22 EST Coming to terms http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=452142 I had a realization that hit me like a ton of bricks. It dawned on me that I am a compulsive overeater. I had a serious hurdle yesterday where I ended up eating about 2000 calories worth of peanuts. I don´t even really like them. I had just finished dinner and was on the computer and started scarfing away. I realized what I was doing, and closed the top, but then I felt powerless and ate even more. <BR> <BR> I know that it´s impossible for me to have 1 cupcake. I need 6 (or more) I ca... Sun, 4 Mar 2007 11:20:47 EST Dear Jeebus http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=444500 Dear Jeebus, <BR> <BR> I ate over 2000 calories yesterday. I just wanted something yummy and tasty and filling for din dins. <BR> Damn it to hell. <BR> Yummy and tasty and filling isn´t everything is it? <BR> Or maybe it was the chocolate or the banana slathered in peanut butter. <BR> I´m weak. <BR> Today is a new day. Tue, 27 Feb 2007 05:20:38 EST food http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=442282 whoo! went way over my limit today..Just over 2000. I had 4 glasses wine and coconut rice with my jerk seitan dinner. Goodness gracious it was so yummy and the wine was so nice and relaxing. I DID jog today for the first time in a long time and went way over my exercize requirement. ok, not way over, but over. <BR> <BR> As you can see, i´m not remorseful. Just a smidge guilty. Next time, i´ll have regular basmati instead of rice with coconut milk. Sun, 25 Feb 2007 17:48:45 EST The dress http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=440905 So about 3 months ago, I bought this great dress. Turquoise linen with kimono sleeves and a red silk bandeu thing around the waist. I don´t know how to explain it properly. Nonetheless, the next time I tried to wear it, much to my dismay it didn´t fit. I could get it on, but i couldn´t breathe much less sit down. Well, today it fit! And I wore it out! <BR> <BR> I suppose it´s my first victory with sparkpeople. It´s good to know because I don´t have a scale nor do I have access to one. ... Sat, 24 Feb 2007 14:44:58 EST
