yay me...it's the little things :)
1 week of clean eating on the books.
Plus, I found out that the boys will be gone for 2 weeks starting 7/23. That means? Yes, yes it does! I have all that time to kick start my workouts! I can go to water aerobics! Every night if I wan... Read more
It is going to be ok
So, after my little epiphany a few weeks back, I have been working really hard on renewing my faith in myself. I have been talking to a man for about a month now and it's going really, really well. I am staying present in the moment and working ... Read more
It's ok to be happy, right?
I had an absolutely awful epiphany the other day. I am having a hard time finding someone "suitable" to date because I am carrying an incredible amount of guilt over my divorce. I am so afraid to actually find someone and allow myself to be happ... Read more
Challenges, barriers, struggles
I need to figure out what my triggers are and why this has become such a challenge. I think one of the biggest barriers is myself. I struggle with holding myself accountable. When I was married, I had someone to be accountable to. If I said I... Read more
Ok, some serious guidance needed
So, I had braces put on a year ago and every 6 weeks, I have to go in for an adjustment. Now that I've hit the year mark, the adjustments are a little more serious and intense. 6 weeks ago, I couldn't chew anything for 4-5 days. I had to reso... Read more
Ok, on track and stall is over
Whilst I enjoyed by darling breakfast in bed moment, I am very happy to be on induction again. After being clean for a full two weeks, I could really feel that white bread and how it affected me. I felt bloated and cranky and couldn't wait to ... Read more
Breakfast in bed
It was a crazy, stressful week but, in the middle of it all, I turned 42 on Thursday. I celebrated with coffee from a coworker, flowers from another and a surprise bouquet left in my car by my daddy. That night, I had a date and went out to di... Read more
Cripes. Cranky and emotional day.

Induction: Day 12 and can't stop peeing!
All my fellow low carbers will understand what I mean by that title. Once you detox and start burning fat, you get a sharp increase in pee output as the fat burns off (at least I do, doesn't everyone??) Which, of course, was annoying at 5 a.... Read more
Induction: Day 11
I am using this blog as a way to hold myself accountable. I don't always have the time to log all my food, but I do when I can. I cannot believe I have made it this many days without a single cheat. I am feeling so good about myself again and... Read more
Induction: Days 9 and 10
Yup, made it to the 10-day mark! Totally on track, pants are still looser (all my pants) and I am starting to feel great. I am having those lovely "cleansing" moments so I know what I am doing is working. I am very, very excited and so happy ... Read more
Induction: Day 8
You guys thought I forgot, didn't you? Never fear, I am here. Still on track and 8 days later with saggy jeans. Yes, saggy in the ass jeans. Dammit. I just bought these jeans a month ago and now, they're getting loose. ... Read more
Induction: Day 7!!! I made it!
I did it! I did it! I did it! *Doing the happy dance*
Now, to hit the 10-day mark ... Read more
