Aw man, I hate being sick. It super sucks, to put it mildly. Friday was the best day of sick though. Friday I didn't feel sick, I just was sick. (I know you're totally confused right now and that's all right.) You know how your whole body ki... Read more
Driving the road, Walking the line
I have fallen into the trap! Last week started with me feeling gross and sickly. I took a couple of days off from the workout routine. Got back into it, felt great and then promptly started this weird sporadic thing. Consequently, I let a fe... Read more
I was up a teensy bit yesterday. A bit disappointing but it is what it is. I did marginally well at tracking my food/exercise but I feel like I'm getting smug and slipping. Can't you let it go to your head!
The goal this week: Remain fixate... Read more
So I have this goal to blog 3 times a week. The big thing is to check in with the people (possibly imaginary) that read this blog so they know I'm still alive, kicking and doing the things I promised I would do to be healthier.
I wanted to ... Read more
My goal this week is to be more consistent. How do I intend to accomplish this you ask?
Well, I'm glad you did because I'm happy to tell you. I am going to continue to journal (it helped me lose 5.8 lbs last week--more than I've lost any wee... Read more
My brain is going in 10 million different directions today! I need to take my vitamins. LOL
I've been trying to write this thing for over an hour. It's not going to be very long, but I'm having a hard time concentrating. The ADD is kicking i... Read more
Here's Me, Blogging Again
All right, I've written this thing 3 times now. I'm having a difficult time expressing myself. While not new, definitely never stops being frustrating. I'm not trying to impress anyone, I'd just like to sound like I'm a teensy bit smart. Jus... Read more
The First One In a Long Time
I'm not sure why I thought I'd blog today. I have been writing in the journal (which I really like) but today I feel like it's time to share. Share for the sake of advice, pats on the back, maybe for someone else to see they are not alone. I... Read more
HLC Mental Challenge --- Week 2
OK, I'm gonna do this the right way because last week I didn't follow directions and then I didn't get a chance to fix my mistake. Silly Cyndi!
1) I am worth it because: I am smart.
2) I am worth it because: I am hardworking.
3) I am... Read more
Two Steps and a pause
Two steps and a pause. The pause is where you stand up, brush off the dust, let the blush settle off your cheek and then you start again. There is no step back. The step back is admitting defeat and I refuse. I will never concede that I didn... Read more
Starting over and over and over
So I have a confession to make. I have been a bad girl. I take that back. I haven't been bad just obsessive. I don't know what it's been the past few weeks but I feel this deep sense of shame and I can't even put a finger on why or where it ... Read more
The Good and The Bad
Last week I was a force to be reckoned with, this week--I'm a mess!! But I don't want to be a giant whine-bag. I've spent way, way, WAY too much of my life being a total whiner when I should have been a doer! I know that doing means improveme... Read more
I never thought I'd be one of "those" people
You know, one of "those" people who are vegetarian. The ones who need to beat you over the head with how awesome they are because they are vegetarian. But I am becoming one. And I see their side now. When you feel so good all the time you wa... Read more
Should I feel so good?
Went vegetarian 2 days ago. I don't know, I sort of feel like I shouldn't feel so good. I feel good on every level-physically, mentally, not so much spiritually but that requires a different fix. Even with bad things happening in my life (stu... Read more
The Food Saboteur in Me
Originally, this blog post was going to be about food pushing and the people who do it. But really, this isn't about them. Maybe some of them mean well, they want to share. Maybe they just want to get rid of the food. "Ask Cyndi" "Yeah, she'l... Read more
