Scale: needs new batteries. Possibly a good thing?
This morning I stepped on my scale. When I do step on it in the morning it kinda of sets the tone of what my day could look like. If the weight is too high, I think that I absolutely MUST watch what I eat. If my weight is s... Read more
Birth control weight gain
It's been a while to say the least. I decided that after some time I would finally give birth control--the pill, a shot. It has been my second month taking it and I definitely have seen some weight gain. My chest did get sl... Read more
working on working out
I have been working out to a work out DVD since Sunday (so for three days now, I havent worked out yet today) and I feel pretty good. I want to see if I could go one month with working out to the video, especially because it has good leg exercis... Read more
So today was that day where I looked down on the scale after neglecting it for some time and said Oh Shoot (or some variation of that). I haven't been doing well. I have been avoiding the responsibility of really taking care of myself.
I c... Read more

Today was an interesting day. I'm noticing more and more than I am still dealing with a lot of unresolved issues. Case in point, today, for no reason whatsoever I felt like crying after class. I felt like I was about to start crying. I had to ta... Read more

New Goals, new outlook
It started with a binge. I binged on a lot...of food so I'll spare you with the details. I feel like I am freaking the heck out. It's not just about food, but more importantly about life. I need to change things and I am always talking about how... Read more
Getting back on the wagon again.
Morning, it is Monday and we have all sprung ahead an hour which means this morning was a pain in terms of getting up. So, the new plan is to get back on the spark wagon, track my calories and work out. I put into my food log what I should eat t... Read more
Eating too much
I feel like I'm not in control. I eat too much. I do not track my calories because I'm afraid to find out how many I am taking in. I'm just wondering how to make it easier, this whole eating mess. I feel like I need to make substitutions with fo... Read more
Next to the total number of spark points that I have is a level. My level is 5. I have no clue what that means. I have not made much progress in my road to eating better. I should be at level one, not five.
Nevertheless, there's always a fi... Read more
There's a she wolf in your closet
So I was going to write just a moopy blog entry but then I started to play the shakira "she wolf" song and I just can't. She keeps talking about the she wolf in my closet. Alright, the current song is Adele's "When will I see you again".
