Day 37
Wednesday, March 29, 2017      4 comments

Can I just tell you, this freaking plan WORKS. Have I been perfect?! Nope. Have I felt deprived? Nope Have I felt better than I have in years? YES! Who knew that all I had to do was balance my food intake to reclaim my health, both physical... Read more
Day 22
Tuesday, March 14, 2017      5 comments

I was feeling really discouraged this morning. The scale was essentially the same with a few .5 pound changes the last four or so days. Then I updated my tracker-- 5 more pounds!?! So that makes 11 pounds down in 22 days. I just want fast... Read more

18 days in. Yes, I am 18 days in. I can't tell you how long it has been that I've stuck to healthy this consistently. To top it off, I do not feel deprived or like I am dieting at all. Not.At.All. I never bought into the carb hype. I... Read more

Wednesday, March 01, 2017      3 comments

I cannot believe it is already March of 2017! The time is FLYING! After the flu kicked my butt for over a week, I gave in and went low carb. I've never done this before. Monday, 2/20 I started-- slowly but surely, making choices to avoid wh... Read more

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?!

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
