Mini update

Sunday, April 24, 2016      7 comments

I"ve been tracking all week...even the two days when I fell out of sync with my goals. I'm realizing how far I had fallen away from my ideals of eating really healthy food. I have gotten sidetracked by convenience, taste, and simply dulling mys... Read more

Back, again.

Sunday, April 17, 2016      6 comments

I'm back, again. This time, having gained back 100% of the weight I lost six years ago. Clearly, I gotta make it a priority not just to lose weight and be healthy, but to find ways to take it one day at a time (one minute at a time, sometimes) a... Read more

Shortest blog on record: How I want to feel

Friday, June 26, 2015      5 comments

I want to feel comfortable in my body. I want to feel proud of my body. I want to fit in clothes without having to worry about "disguising" some part of me. I want to feel confident that I am doing the best I can for myself health-wise by eatin... Read more

Birthday Intention

Monday, April 13, 2015      2 comments

I have a goal to lose eight to nine pounds by the next Hakomi residency (a convenient point in time that happens to be in just over a month). Perhaps that is ambitious for a middle-aged lady, but I'm setting the intention and the actions (below... Read more

Mindfulness and Company on the Journey

Tuesday, December 09, 2014      3 comments

I'm back. I've been away for months...and before that I wasn't really participating. My weight is now higher than it was the first time I started SparkPeople, and while it's not at an all time high, it's close. I'm two pounds away from the BMI... Read more

I thought plateaus happened LATER!

Friday, July 04, 2014      4 comments

For five days I have been on track with food tracking, staying within calorie range (between 1,200 and 1,500 per day) and doing modest aerobic exercise every day and strength training (to “failure”) almost every day. Result? ZERO movement on ... Read more

Day 3 on Track: Update

Wednesday, July 02, 2014      3 comments

Did 3 (count' em) days of staying on track with food (tracking and staying within limits). Have I lost an ounce? Answer: No. Darn this middle-aged-ness! Nothing for it but to continue. I've been a bit of an exercise slacker because... Read more

Stopping and Water!

Sunday, June 22, 2014      6 comments

I'm proud of myself because I stopped eating the day before yesterday. Not altogether, of course, but I'm noticing that even if I eat a lot at one point during the day and feel freaked out about it, I can just stop and let that be enough for the... Read more

Checking in, not checking out

Tuesday, June 17, 2014      3 comments

It's clear that emo stress, perceptions of overwork, being alone, and evening are the challenge times for me. When I'm feeling upset, angry, bored, stressed, and/or tired I have a tendency to reach "Stuff I Oughtn't Have." And just the f... Read more

My YES plan

Thursday, January 02, 2014      12 comments

I'm going to feel better about inhabiting my body. I'm embarking on a good health, good skin, and feel good change. As a result of these changes, I anticipate that I'm going to gently step away from the extra weight that I allowed to cre... Read more

Too busy doesn't matter

Tuesday, March 12, 2013      8 comments

It's too late tonight to write a blog, but I'm going to do it anyway. I've been too busy and too stressed out to focus on eating and least that's what I've been telling myself. I taught four classes this fall at two diffe... Read more

What does success feel like?

Saturday, December 08, 2012      6 comments

I'm reaping the karma of allowing myself to fall into poor eating choices. And the problem is that even though I don't want to keep gaining weight...I also don't seem to want to stop making the choices I've been making. I realized that... Read more

Connection between sleep and weight.

Saturday, July 21, 2012      6 comments

"Research has already shown that people who sleep less than seven hours a night tend to have a higher body mass index (BMI) than people who get more sleep. The biological mechanisms linking sleep deprivation and weight gain are numerous." h... Read more
