Why do we do this to ourselves?
Here I am... months from my last post. After falling off the bandwagon yet again, I decided I needed to make a major change... especially while I am here at school. I just don't know how.
I've been so busy like every college student is, bu... Read more

So if I have learned anything with fighting my emotional being in the past couple weeks, it is that you need to reinforce what you can do and not what you can't. And in no specific order:
I CAN eat delicious things and still be healthy.

Feeling good today.
Granted, it IS only 9am. But at least I am not exhausted and dehydrated like I was yesterday. I just walked 3/4 of a mile in record high heat - 82 degrees at 8:40am. I had to do it in my jeans and polo that I was wearing to work though. =( I'm ... Read more
I really can do this!
Today was one of the best days I have had in a long time. I left work early because I didn't feel well after not sleeping, and got some good rest when I got there. I had an incredibly healthy and fully conscious lunch and snack afterward, and wa... Read more
Back on the bandwagon?
Why do I do this to myself? It's been six months since I was around last, and I could make every excuse under the sun... school and work got in the way or that I have just been too tired to do anything. And both of those things are true to some ... Read more
So much to do, and so little time...
Sorry I haven't updated in a bit. My last semester at my college started up last week, and trying to get myself organized proved near impossible. But I did it, and was able to overcome this back/hip/leg pain for the most part. The hardest thing ... Read more
I was one of those kids/teens who was never happy. Ever. I spent my time locked up in my room, listening to loud music, and sleeping. I wasn't doing well in school. I was angry at the world for so many things that were in my control, and so many... Read more
First ever video blog!
So yes. I spent a few hours in the ER last night after the clinic said they couldn't do anything for me. X-Rays and a CT Scan later, and I am diagnosed with multiple bulging disks. I was prescribed 5 days worth of superpain... Read more
Scared to death...
I think the only good thing about the past week has been that I have lost 9 lbs. Unfortunately, I didn't do much to lose it. I have been laying in bed almost constantly since Friday, nearly unable to move.
Friday morning I woke up and had n... Read more
It has been far too long.
I'm back. I'm not really sure why I ever left. I think it had a lot to do with being a college student and working the equivalent of full time as well. I get frustrated far too easily. No more of that now.
I've been eating better at least..... Read more
Of rain and yoga mats...
Really, rain sucks a lot. It kept me from being able to do my walk today. I know I need to find some other exercises to do, but I really want to get a yoga mat before I start going through my exercise vids. Anyone out there have an extra they wo... Read more
Just to add, I was tempted to weigh myself today after all of the exercising and water drinking and food watching I have done this week. SIX POUNDS LOST! =) Sweet deal.... Read more
Feeling better about yesterday...
Today I did pretty decently. I didn't sleep well last night, so I slept in until 10 and napped on and off all day. Around 11 I had 2 servings of cheerios because there wasn't any yogurt left in the fridge. I napped from about 12 - 2, then 3-4. D... Read more
