Back from first vacation and getting ready for next one

Thursday, August 16, 2012      1 comments

Enjoyed keeping up with Insanity and time with my extended family. Of course there were some disagreements between the siblings but all in all the kids (cousins) really had a great time and that made the vacation. My parents have 19 grand kids a... Read more

First weekend in a long time without a binge. Yey me. Did overeat but instead of having 6 muffins had 2 at a time... Enjoyed my food this weekend. I do need to learn portion control but baby steps. First got to control the binging and bad r... Read more

Weekend looming ahead

Friday, August 10, 2012      1 comments

I have a problem with the weekends. A bit of background. We are a traditional Jewish family and we observe our Sabbath. We eat 2 huge meals Friday night and Saturday morning. Before synagogue we have cakes/cookies etc. After the synagogue i... Read more

Lose the negative voice

Wednesday, August 08, 2012      4 comments

For 45 years I have made sure I compliment other people and look for the good in them. Yes I do get mad and rant and rave about someones misdeed but I always look for the good. For the same 45 years I have always looked at the bad in me. I can... Read more

Focus on what you can eat

Tuesday, July 31, 2012      3 comments

Confession, I love fruit and veg. Never liked processed foods. I don't eat them because I'm hungry but just for self punishment...even if most times it happens as part of mindless eating. Today for lunch I had roasted pumpkin in my salad. (... Read more

Everything happens for a reason

Sunday, July 22, 2012      2 comments

I admit that losing weight getting nice compliments and then screwing up and gaining all the weight back twice in one year is enough to send anyone into a why me mode. Why do I always screw up..why can't I learn from my mistakes etc. Howeve... Read more

I wanted to blog that I started the Insanity 60 day workouts. It is tough but thanks to Jillian it is doable (sort of at a much slower pace). I am so excited about still being fit despite the extra pounds I piled on in the last year. I see it as... Read more

Overeating but enjoying every bite

Saturday, June 09, 2012      3 comments

This is a long journey. I know it didn't take one day to get where I am today so it won't take one weekend of abstaining from all my favorite foods to get healthy again. I over indulged in good home made muffins and cookies but I didn't bin... Read more

Fooling my mind or am I

Wednesday, June 06, 2012      0 comments

I had a nice big breakfast and really didn't feel hungry for lunch. I ate anyway and finished it pretty quick. The way things are going the past few months, this would be an incentive to go back for seconds or just eat anything else. As I wasn't... Read more

I want to shout I swam a whole lap using the breaststroke

Friday, May 18, 2012      5 comments

I woke up in a bad mood as most of my clothes don't fit and this week is my kid's Bar Mitzvah. Went to the pool to swim off my mood. I usually do between 30-40 laps using crawl. My form isn't that great but I don't really care as long as I can... Read more

2nd round of 21 binge free days

Tuesday, April 17, 2012      1 comments

I'm really excited about managing the first 21. I know I'm not out of the woods yet as I can see how easy it is to go from overeating at one meal to throwing in the towel. I'm trying to think of healthy treats to make one minute and the nex... Read more

I did it I got through 21 days binge free

Saturday, April 14, 2012      5 comments

I am so pleased I did it. It means it can be done. No I didn't eat only healthy food for all the 21 days but I did do that for most of the days! I'm so pleased. I am starting the next 21 days from tomorrow. I think it will be so much more d... Read more

Day 17 of second attempt at 21 binge free days

Tuesday, April 10, 2012      2 comments

It is still really hard for me to get my head round the fact that most people don't have issues with food. They don't think about it all the time and they don't make emotional decisions about eating or not eating. I still didn't get back my... Read more

Went to gym with hubby to continue with week 1 of 5k my way. He is so competitive we had a good laugh about it and I let him win ;-). We did 4k in 40 minutes. Had good meals all week. I plan to low-carb for a couple of weeks and then bring ... Read more

Two steps back one step forward

Friday, March 23, 2012      5 comments

I am finding it so hard to make the move towards eating the right amount of food. I'm off grains again as they really don't agree with me. It's just that I'm eating too much. On the positive side did my 2nd couch to 5k (8 week rookie runni... Read more
