Self Esteem via healthy choices
Saturday, June 25, 2016      1 comments

I have been doing a great job making healthy choices this week! It only took a yeast infection so bad that my hands will not stop peeling :-/ At least that is what the doc believes it is. So I have been doing my best to be yeast and sugar free... Read more

Today I started doubting myself about the job thing. Does it mean I'm a brat to not want to work a high stress job with PAID summers off? Would it be foolish to abandon steady pay for less workplace stress and more ends-meat stress? Ugh. This se... Read more

I woke up today and went on the search for a counselor in the area. I am at a point in life where if I don't let go of some stress, I am going to lose it. The main source of my stress is how I feel about my job. I am a high school counselor. I w... Read more

I'm writing here just from the desire to record and reflect on today. I often set goals that are too rigid... too much to ask of myself based on where I stand. So, no goals. No expectations. Just reflecting on today. Sunday, I joined the gy... Read more

It is hard to believe how much time has passed since I wrote my last blog entry. Before the move, my greatest concern was my job. Well, I stumbled upon the Americorps website and have been working as a Literacy Tutor in a Title I school sin... Read more

So instead of doing my DVD workout, we are going bouldering at Climb Nashville. I am excited. I wish I was a more confident belayer so we could do some wall climbs, but I am still pretty bad at that. But bouldering is a good strength workout, ta... Read more
Bad Weekend
Sunday, January 31, 2010      2 comments

Saturday morning I had to trudge my way through the snow to work. That meant waking up an hour earlier than usual just to get there on time. So I did, but I skipped breakfast. I cannot be at work and be hungry. It drives me to the brink of insa... Read more
I am a grazer.
Friday, January 29, 2010      3 comments

So I have realized my eating style: Grazer. As soon as I wake up, I usually eat something light, 200-300 calories before a workout. If I am not hungry, I go straight into my workout. Then, I drink a lot of fluids until I can prepare my lunc... Read more

Today I went to Hastings to sell some CDs so that I'd have cash for gas and my $2 cycling class! It's so close to payday, but far enough away that I had to do it. I have itunes, though, so I was able to import the CDs to my itunes library before... Read more
I am back to sparkpeople.
Saturday, January 23, 2010      2 comments

Well, the first go around at sparkpeople was not very successful. I am also a bit bummed that this has been a three year battle; I had forgotten how long I had been trying to lose weight. But I did end up going from 152 to 132. And then I gained... Read more

Well, I know my number one weakness. Stress. Not just school stress, because I can handle that. And work stress. I can handle that one, too. It's school stress, work stress, and a huge argument with the boyfriend that knocked me over today. All ... Read more
