Food...why are you so complicated?
I've just been thinking about some stuff lately, and I kind of feel like working through it here. Things aren't going all that well in relation to food. My thoughts around food are not happy ones. I rarely feel positive about what I eat. I strug... Read more
Week 2 Plan
I LOVED having my plan last week! I had a few meals outside the plan, but overall, it was so easy to have a prepped fridge and list of available foods. And I lost weight...woohoo!

My Happy Plan
It's a new year, and I'm ready to try something different! My first goal is to lose 5 pounds, and I'm going to try to do it by planning my foods and exercising an hour a day (5x). It might work, and it might fail! But I'm going to try! I seem to... Read more

The Rest of 2014
One of our challenges for this week in Camp WannaBeFit is to share our plan for the rest of 2014.
For the past year and a half, I've been fighting a battle with food, weight, and body image. Well, the battle started when I was a teen in bal... Read more

A tale of mud
I'm a huge fan of sunshine (on snow, on a warm day...yum!). That said, I also adore rainy and foggy spring mornings, especially when seen from the train. There is something wonderful about seeing green fields, bare trees, and mist slide by.
