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

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

here's to fresh starts

Sunday, January 05, 2014      0 comments

The new year started out great. I went to Raleigh to spend time with one of my life-long friends and her husband: on New Year's Day, we started out with a yoga class, "ran" four miles, and then did a restorative yoga class. I'd never done the... Read more

2014 is going to be awesome!

Saturday, December 28, 2013      2 comments

I'm excited about the upcoming year. I have a lot of travel scheduled already: trips to Houston, Savannah, Flagstaff, AZ, and a stay at the Greenbrier, and the absolute best part will be returning to Mexico for my second 'go round' at my yoga ... Read more

This Just In: Smaller Dress Size Affects Local Woman's Happiness

Monday, November 18, 2013      3 comments

I always journal here about my "downer" times, so I thought it was only fair to counter it in this space with a really happy moment I had this weekend. I was going to a local concert event that I'd really been looking forward to, and I was ... Read more

Living Life at 90%

Wednesday, November 13, 2013      0 comments

I got up and worked out this morning and faced this day with a resolve I didn't know I was capable of. Am taking a few moments away from work to journal about it here. Am going through some s$%^. Some of it is of my own doing, but mostly ... Read more
