The Aftermath of a Graduate Degree

Sunday, February 22, 2015      6 comments

It's been two months since my last blog. That is a good indication of what I've been doing. Nothing. I've been doing nothing. I'm sleeping through the night again (for the most part), but that's about it. I haven't been doing anyt... Read more

Friday, December 19, 2014      12 comments

I took a personal day to soak in the feeling of being done, really done, with grad school. Graduation is tomorrow and I'm a blend of feeling elated, proud and exhausted. It's been a ride. I'm looking forward to 2015 so I can reincorporate mys... Read more

Thursday, September 25, 2014      8 comments

This blog is coming off of 15 hours of sleep, a healthy breakfast and coffee... in my pajamas... at noon. Someone is on vacation. I've been playing for the last two weeks, out to Seattle on business and up to Lake Superior for my real vaca... Read more

25% to Goal

Sunday, September 14, 2014      9 comments

Well, it's been 3.5 months since June 1. Slow but steady has been the mantra, and apparently that has paid off in spades for me. I am proud to say that with much less chaos, crazy, and effort, I've managed to steadily lose 19.6 pounds which p... Read more

My Own Little Miracle

Monday, September 01, 2014      4 comments

Since June 1, 2014, I've lost 17.2 pounds. As of today, I saw a new "decade" on the scale that I haven't seen since last October. Yes, it's slow. However, I'm not doing ANYTHING this time outside of being mindful. I'm not meticul... Read more

The Fear of Hunger

Tuesday, August 05, 2014      6 comments

So, today I realized that I am afraid of feeling hungry. I have never really thought about/acknowledged this piece of my personality before, but it came to light today as I was discussing why I didn't want to start exercising again. Inevitably... Read more

It's been 2 months since I decided to try again with myself. It's also been approximately the same amount of time that I have been on my new dose of meds (which honestly has made a world of difference). I want to take a few moments to celebrat... Read more

Another Week, Another Pound

Sunday, July 13, 2014      7 comments

It's been a very strange week and I've been fighting something respiratory. As a result, there have been a couple of missed meals which has resulted in being extra hungry the last two days. It's been discouraging to feel that hungry again, but... Read more

A Month In Review

Saturday, July 05, 2014      6 comments

So, I didn't do anything special in June related to diet and exercise. The only variables were the following: I went on vacation, I bought a lawnmower, I went back on my medication. That's it. It's been interesting, especially the last ... Read more

Less Hungry: A Story of Strange

Saturday, June 28, 2014      3 comments

I've gained 30 pounds since I started grad school 2 years ago. Yep, there. I said it. From my lowest? Let's just say I am back up at my highest. And then some. The gloom and rainy tapping on the window should really indicate my m... Read more

It's not a secret that I have been in therapy for an eating disorder for the past year and a half. Last week I hit my first real wall, the kind that makes you want to quit. I spent the week angry, for no reason I could connect with, and everyt... Read more

Starting Over (Again)

Sunday, June 01, 2014      12 comments

Well, it certainly has been awhile. Grad school has consumed my life and has provided me ready made excuses for about 1.5 years now. With only 4 classes and a lit review ... Read more
