Give up...or Stick it Out?
I have a confession to make: I have lost all motivation to be healthy. It's just so much easier to not care. it's easier to eat whatever the hell I want and not scrutinize every morsel of food that crosses my lips. It's more enjoyable to go o... Read more
Primal Reset: Day 9
I don't really have much to say today. The BF and I made the drive back from DC to Ohio, and I must say that I am really, really tired of making that drive. Not only is it long and boring, but it costs us about $90 in gas round-trip.
Spea... Read more
Primal Reset: Day 8
Things got a bit difficult again today. The BF and I drove from Ohio to DC to view some apartments, and try as I might, I have such a hard time staying Primal when I'm out of my element.
The day started off fine. I woke up at 7:00 and wen... Read more
Primal Reset: Day 7
I have lots to write about today, so bear with me!
Topic 1: 24-hour fast
I decided to try a 24-hour fast today, in an effort to boost my weight-loss efforts post-binge. I got the idea from the blog Lean Saloon, which is written by someon... Read more
Primal Reset: Day 6
I'm not good at doing nothing. As stressed out and busy as I was in graduate school, I'd much rather have that lifestyle than the one I do now! Being unemployed, I seriously have nothing to do with my time. I've cleaned the apartment, done as... Read more
Primal Reset: Day 5
I think I'm finally getting back into the swing of things. Non-primal foods are losing their appeal again, and I'm feeling very satisfied with the primal foods I am eating. My desire to binge has diminished again, too. My hiatus from regular ... Read more
Primal Reset: Days 3 & 4
Yesterday, the boyfriend and I spent most of the day in the car travelling from Maryland to Ohio. We stopped in D.C. to see Super 8 (not impressed) and check out a few potential apartments (since I have a potential job offer in that area). Sin... Read more
Primal Reset: Day 2
As always, thanks to everyone who posted words of encouragement and support on my blog yesterday. While appreciated, all of the kind words in the world won't make me feel any better about the poor decisions I made, nor about how terrible I feel... Read more
Primal Reset: Day 1
It has been over a month since the last time I posted a blog. May was a whirlwind. I graduated with my M.Ed., then a week later hightailed it to New Zealand for nearly 3 weeks. I returned to the states on May 31st, then on June 1st had to dri... Read more
It has been a really, really long time since I've written a blog. Sorry! My mom and one of my younger sisters came to visit last Thursday and stayed through Tuesday to celebrate my graduation with me.
My eating habits have gone a bit wack... Read more
The Decluttering Continues
With only 2 days until my mom visits, the BF and I are in major cleaning mode. We continued attacking our "spare room" today, which has actually been more of a junk room since we moved in a year ago. The closet in that room was full of three h... Read more
Other than my usual recap, all I have for you all today is a quote.
"I will mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper... Read more
Thanks to everyone for their encouragement on yesterday's blog. i was sick all day yesterday, and even woke up this morning still feeling under the weather. Eating non-Primally really took a toll on me. I fasted for about 38 hours simply beca... Read more
I binged last night.
I'm so flippin' aggravated with myself.
One of my friends was having a fundraiser for a sports team he plays on. The fundraiser was $15 for a 2-hour open bar. I decided to get my money's worth and drank WAY too m... Read more
Haunted by Body Image
I'll come out and say it. I have horrible, HORRIBLE body image. I always have. When I used to be overweight, I just sort of accepted myself as a size 20, even though I didn't particularly like it. 100 pounds later, my body image has not gott... Read more
