Summertime check in
I re-read my last post about setting smaller goals and realized I'm once again doing the same thing. I've set both weight loss goals and activity goals for the next few months, with the intent of meeting a longer-term goal by October when I get... Read more
For some reason, I thought I'd checked in here more frequently than I did this last couple months - I faithfully logged my food every day, but apparently, I didn't do the social thing here during the holidays.

Advent Challenge: Day 1
So I joined with one of my online communities in a DDPyoga + clean eating during Advent, and this is Day 1 of 24. I'm writing this kind of as a draft of a note to my accountability partner (who isn't on sparkpeople.)
This morning I did RHC... Read more
Okay, so that's probably not even a word. Unlike its counterpart disestablishmentarianism which we learned in school when learning about the arms race. Or whatever.
But what this has to do with is, once again, choices.
Around the new... Read more
Fear of Flying
These thoughts have been mulling about in my brain for a couple days, so I'm going to try to organize them here.
There's really nothing to complain about when it comes to health and fitness. This came to mind when one of my main mentors, S... Read more
Thank-You Notes to the Universe
So where I work, I have six bosses. Six. Bossy-bosses. Each has equal authority, at any given moment, to boss me around. Sometimes it's hard figuring out who to prioritize when they each need different things. Anyway, I digress.
A coup... Read more
Shadowing Stacey: Unexpected Deliciousness
First, I want to say that after some thinking, I totally subscribe to Mike Mullins (of Mike at 90%) theory that there are no "re-starts," "re-boots," or "Versions 2.0" or such that people say when they get off track and get back on. It's just a... Read more
A Lightbulb Moment
It's spring cleaning time here in the heart of Appalachia, and some of my chores just inspired this blog entry.
Some time ago, I'd posted that I re-enrolled in my insurance-underwritten "weight management" program. I'd thought I would add ... Read more
still here - mind over matter in reverse
This was originally written as a message to a friend, but I'm editing a little bit to make it make sense for this space.
I haven't gone anywhere - have been entering my nutrition and exercise in the database daily as always. But I'm newl... Read more
On Methods of Accountability
Am doing some more reflection on this year’s retreat, which was as I said before, a totally different experience for me than 2013, but awesome in its own ways. One thing that happened was that DDP himself picked me up in a golf cart and we rode... Read more
Shadowing Stacey - Keep Private Things Private?
I really thought when about a month ago I "came out" regarding my disordered eating, that it would be a pivotal moment in which everything I needed motivationally would culminate and I'd start being one of the super success stories you read abou... Read more
Shadowing Stacey - Results Not Typical
I really thought "coming out" about things such as disordered eating and depression would spearhead a new beginning or fresh start for me in my weight loss journey. As Dr. Phil says, "You can't fix what you don't acknowledge." I don't know if ... Read more
Shadowing Stacey - Introduction Part II
I compulsively overeat.
Again, I don't have a "story" per se that can't be summed up in that sentence. I compulsively overeat, and I did so as recently as 1:00 a.m. today. I haven't plumbed the psychological depths that Stacey recommends... Read more
Shadowing Stacey -- Introduction
This will probably be all over the place because my thoughts aren't organized yet - I'll come back and edit at some point. But if you're reading this, chances are, Stacey Morris has been a big inspiration to you. She certainly has been for me.... Read more
So according to sparkpeople, if I stay on program and don't exceed their daily calorie recommendation, I can attain a long-term weight-loss goal by the time I go to my yoga retreat in July. So I'm gonna do this, along with the goals I already w... Read more
