Checking In

Monday, January 18, 2016      3 comments

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. The DDPYoga Advent challenge w... Read more

Advent Challenge: Day 1

Tuesday, December 01, 2015      4 comments

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

Wednesday, November 11, 2015      0 comments

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

Wednesday, July 22, 2015      0 comments

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

Wednesday, May 20, 2015      0 comments

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

Saturday, May 02, 2015      2 comments

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

Sunday, November 02, 2014      0 comments

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

Sunday, August 10, 2014      0 comments

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?

Sunday, June 15, 2014      0 comments

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

Sunday, June 08, 2014      0 comments

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

Monday, May 19, 2014      2 comments

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

Sunday, May 18, 2014      2 comments

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

reporting in from aquageddon

Thursday, January 23, 2014      2 comments

I just noticed that my last blog entry started, "the new year started out great!" I'm starting this one by saying this has been the weirdest start to a new year I can remember, ever. With snowstorms reaching subzero temperatures sandwiching a ... Read more
