Good morning to one and all! It has not been a week quite yet since I stopped tracking, but I went ahead and weighed myself as usual. The result: maintaining 115. That made me feel good, but this experiment is definitely about much more than tha... Read more
Trying Something New
I've decided to stop tracking my foods everyday. I'm going to go this week without tracking anything except my fitness and my water. Why is that? Because I am no longer listening to my body, which is something that has both stressed me out and l... Read more
Excluding a few bouts of feeling sick this weekend, I am definitely calling this a wonderful weekend (and not just because it was 3 days)! Getting off of the hormones is taking longer than I thought, but I am definitely happy to be done with the... Read more
Sicker and Sicker
I have spent this last week alternating being ravenous, craving the most ridiculous things (like cheese and meat, insane for a lactose intolerant vegan), being horribly nauseous and flat out being sick at the porcelain throne. It only seems to b... Read more
One Sick Tuesday
I feel so sick to my stomach. It actually really hurts... I came home two hours early yesterday and stayed home today as well. I know that this is all stress and lifestyle induced, but that does not make me feel much better. It certainly doesn't... Read more
Hmm. With all of the other craziness going on, I keep forgetting to blog about something that has been on my mind for awhile. It started with my first day in the warehouse. I was getting to see all of these people that I used to work with, which... Read more
Thank God it's the weekend!! I have had the craziest last week and a half. It has been both good for me and very stressful for me, but I feel as if I have grown a bit.
The warehouse has been backed up on orders for quite some time, which ha... Read more
A Change of Pace
Recently, I have been stressed out and slacking a little bit on my workouts. I felt aimless and frazzled, and I even had a couple of mini-food binges. I have not been able to see my husband for more than 10 minutes a night for awhile, my brother... Read more
Hooray! My mini-diet-breakdown did me a world of good. I reevaluated all of my goals, my diet, my fitness, my family dynamic and my attitude and made some definite changes. I did not realize what a rut I was stuck in.
I can't say that every... Read more
Oi. I have binged twice in less than 24 hours. My whole body feels disgusting and out of whack. It all started with the first cookie baking event that I have had in many, many months.
I tried one of the tiny little cookies and found myself ... Read more
Food, Goals, Workouts and Motivation
Today was definitely one of those days where I had to convince myself to exercise. I was looking forward to an awesome workout all morning until the unthinkable happened: I couldn't get hungry. I waited and waited for my breakfast to wear off, b... Read more
It was a pretty good day today! I did not make it to the Farmer's Market, which was unfortunate, but I did spend most of my morning cleaning the whole house. Even the refrigerator got spiffied up!
One of the only issues that I had today was... Read more
Today was both an awful day and a great day. I have been stressed out non-stop today over work, money (my husband just lost over $3 an hour on the new incentive program at work), and family responsibilities. I was feeling run down from that and ... Read more
Giving Up, In a Manner of Speaking
Oh, poo. I am done stressing about my calorie range and over stuffing myself to meet it. I'm going to eat when I'm hungry, eat until I'm full, make sure that I am getting enough protein and other vitamins and let that be that.
It is the su... Read more
I Did It! Well, Sort Of...
I made my calorie minimum, but if I'm being honest, I kind of ate a little bit more than I should have. I ate as quickly as I could and did not drink anything until after I was finished eating. Now my belly is stuffed, and I feel a little bit g... Read more
