Honesty can be ugly
I am having a BLAH day.
It's been quite a long while since I have felt this bad about myself, dwelling on how bad I look, I fat I am, how slow I am, how lazy I am. I can't say exactly where it's coming from though the 15 pounds I've gained th... Read more
Kicking fear out of my life
I have been in a pretty pathetic cycle lately: feel bad about my weight/body, eat crap, anxiety about eating crap, feel bad about my body, eat crap. Repeat. For 30+ years.
See the cute girl in my profile pic on here? She is hiding out. There ... Read more
Asking for help
Asking for help doesn't come naturally to most people, especially for go-getters like us right! Unfortunately it also doesn't come naturally to people who need it due to crisis. I facilitate a grief support group on Tuesdays and asking for help ... Read more
MWF ISO BALANCE

Glass Half Full
Since I've been absent from SP, I've gained 10 pounds. I'm still 10 pounds down from where I've started so I'm really trying to stay positive and see the glass half full rather than beating myself up and seeing it half empty. I think attitude ca... Read more
The last week has been mind blowing. On Tuesday, I lost two pounds. And bought a house! I was pretty dang psyched about both!
As many of you know, my husband, CL, and I, have not lived together for more than a year. I left him in November 2010... Read more
I have a Honda not a wagon
I believe language has a lot of power, and the language that we use in our daily lives - to describe our world, ourselves, and certainly our weight-loss journeys - can really impact our progress, attitude and success.
So when I hear someone sa... Read more

I've been really struggling with what my goals for 2012 are. See, I didn't start 2011 thinking "I'm going to change my life and body by improving nutrition and fitness and start investing in my health". It just sorta HAPPENED. I was a chronic di... Read more
Grinding it Out
You know what I hate about vacation?
That it ends.
Yep, it's back to the up-before-the-sun, midday-slump, 4-hour meeting (!!!) worklife. I love my job when I get to do the part I was hired to do - work with clients and patients. When I am d... Read more
I love the accessories of fitness and nutrition almost as much as I love fitness and nutrition themselves. Water bottles and new tupperware, running tights and headphones. Since I'm always looking for ways to make nutrition and fitness better an... Read more
Joy to the World!
Christmas isn't just a day, it's a state of mind. And at worship services Christmas Eve, the minister urged us "Be Not Afraid!," as angels commanded shepherds thousands of years ago. And so with several days of love, gratitude and blessing overf... Read more
The little fishy that could
I've been very frustrated with my hip lately, taking one step forward and two back after each workout. I realized that in addition to my fear of PHYSICAL pain, my last run really messed with my mind too. It went so poorly that I have to conquer ... Read more
