The depression and anxiety reared it's ugly head and was so profound. I made the 'executive' decision to stop taking the progesterone. It took over 1 week, but I started to "feel normal" (whatever normal is) again. I had a follow up with my DR... Read more
Successes 1/8-1/14
Saturday, January 14, 2017      2 comments

So many times I've fallen into negative or 'faulty thinking'. As a person in the helping professions, I was able to help-help-help but never implement in my own life. This happens in this field, but after a few years out of direct service in ch... Read more

2016 wasn't the best. Lots of loss. Lots of health issues. Lots of anxiety. Lots of doubt. Lots of turmoil. I woke up with a newfound interest in bettering my life. Taking on the issues and addressing "the elephants" in the ro... Read more
Refocusing and Recommitting

It is August 6th, already. Where has the time gone?! June. Well, let's just say that everything kind of fell apart. My grandfather has Stage IV cancer and (against the advice of the doctor and our family) underwent chemotherapy and had... Read more
When the going gets tough...
Sunday, June 05, 2016      4 comments

So, at weigh in this morning, when the scale didn't budge and my weight has been the same for several weeks-- I was ready to cuss and throw in the towel. Then I remembered I also haven't done my measurements in a while. So, in my 21 day pe... Read more
June. Already?!
Wednesday, June 01, 2016      5 comments

I had big plans to be down several pounds and inches by this month... but the best laid plans... right? Anyway, I am not going to beat myself up for this-- no need to eat my emotions or binge again because I'm not exactly where I had planned to... Read more

Ahhh. Where to begin. Why am I stressing?! 1. Rental Property lease is up and we're looking for new tenants. It is a disaster of a process and I am OVER it already and we just did our first showing yesterday. Our current tenants ... Read more

Well. Well. Well. Well. (I don't know if I'm willing myself to be well or if I am surprised with this morning's weigh in or a combination of both) I am horribly nauseous this morning. Like, yuck. We ordered japanese last night-- and I ... Read more

Re-discovering...
Thursday, April 28, 2016      1 comments

I can't begin to explain how wonderful I feel... I know how good clean eating (or mostly) clean eating is for me-- but here's the proof-- I can wake up earlier, my mood has improved by like 5,000% (is that a real measurement??! ... Read more
April Updates
Monday, April 25, 2016      2 comments

Well, apparently I had my weight tracked on here incorrectly-- so I found the error this morning and updated it-- meaning I've lost 12 pounds in total... but that means I have 105 total to lose. That 105 is a DAUNTING number, so I want to take i... Read more
Weekend update
Sunday, April 17, 2016      3 comments

I think I did a pretty good job of sticking with it this weekend. While I didn't do any formal exercising, I did get TONS of steps in. Yesterday-- I did over 9,000 (and that was just on my phone, so that doesn't include the walking without the... Read more
Anxiety
Thursday, April 14, 2016      3 comments

I am struggling with anxiety this week. I don't know that I have ever had an issue with it before. During my previous career, it was the culprit for my not being able to sleep-- but rightly so, given the huge amounts of pressure and stress fro... Read more
I Am A Mess.
Monday, April 04, 2016      5 comments

I am a mess. I mean, there isn't much more to say than, I am a mess. I went from living a healthy lifestyle to this. To THIS! I am so overweight, my body hurts. I used to jog and walk all the time. At least 10 miles a week. Most o... Read more
It Is Time!
Thursday, March 03, 2016      5 comments

So. No progress made, really. Well, I've been better about food choices-- I eat breakfast in the morning (lately it's been an english muffin and a greek yogurt cup). I have been better about lunch, too. Dinner, well I am still struggling ... Read more
