Be careful what you wish for!
Isn't that what they say?
I was wishing that something would turn up on my allergy test I took yesterday. I have trouble sleeping, some mild congestion and some pretty bad sinus headaches I get 2-3 times a week. So I'm thinking hopefully ... Read more
1 week Binge Free!
I made it a week without binging! There were some nights (tonight included) when I ate more than maybe I should have, but the point is that I feel good and have not eaten to the point of discomfort at anytime. I'm convinced that I can lose at ... Read more

The environment of a binge incident
So, just thinking about what causes me to start binging, becuase I did it again last night. I think there are some deep issues here that need to be resolved, but I'm not sure where to start. I think I'm pretty happy since finishing school and ... Read more
May was such a great month, so why did I spend the first two days of June binging?
Ok, I was tired (very little sleep) and stressed out (very busy at work) I had a cold. But really these are excuses that lead to I deserve it, I didn't lose... Read more
Sometimes all it takes is looking at things from a different point of view.
I used toget stressed out a LOT at work. Little things would irritate me and I'd get so mad, sometimes I couldn't even think and solve the problem. And then I lea... Read more

I gave up, and it's the BEST!
I know this is wrong. Giving up on a dream should not make you feel good.
BUT - since I have given up on ever sitting for the CPA exam, I feel GREAT! It's like a huge weight has been lifted off of me (even though I've gained "real" weight... Read more

Too busy for Sparkpeople? What a HUGE mistake! :-(
What on earth made me think I could be too busy for sparkpeople? You know what being too busy has lead to? Binge eating! I've never had this problem before and now, at least once or twice a week.
These past couple of weeks have been ho... Read more
OK, there is TOO MUCH going on right now, so sadly I cannot be the active member of sparkpeople that I was in the past. Tracking food, workouts, writing on message boards, all of it takes time that I frankly don't have. I'm working part-time, ... Read more
The "whole food of the week" was... red cabbage! I know I know, I've eaten cabbage before. But I never cooked it before, so it counts! Plus, it's getting harder and harder for me to find new food to try. I'm going to have to go out of my way... Read more

Turnips and Parsnips
Tried two new whole foods last week! Parsnips - we totally liked and will make again. Turnips - um, yeah, no wonder they're never on the menu at the restaurants we go to! Pass on those. Even the addition of a little balsamic vinegar after ro... Read more
