Goals need to be concrete, achievable, challenging, and time-limited. I know a lot about setting goals from my years working with autistic children.
I realize that I said my vision incorrectly yesterday. Instead of "become," it should say "... Read more
So I've had a few meltdowns this weekend, over wedding stuff. Too much to do, not enough time to do it in, etc. etc. Not fun. Then this morning I was going to wear a particular outfit and I put on the top and it looked awful because I've gained ... Read more
So far, so good. I am feeling relaxed, which is a nice change. Lack of stress is good for the Janna. ;)
Yesterday I made some poor food choices and ate a LOT of junk food. But I paid for it - felt rather gross most of the evening. So I will... Read more
You know, the one about how I'm going to change this, that, and the other, and make tons of good changes, and be a whole new and different person?
Yeah, not so much anymore.
I was in Calgary doing wedding prep stuff a couple of weeks a... Read more
I hate to admit it, but I've been really lax on... well, everything lately. I haven't been exercising like I ought, I haven't been eating like I ought, I haven't been focusing on the things I want to focus on. And I can't even blame it on weddin... Read more
I don't want to go to Curves, but I will. I'm just so tired. I babysat last night and didn't get to bed until nearly 2.00 a.m. I wasn't tired then, but I sure am today! I think my sleep cycle has cycled through, and since I'm not on ADHD medicat... Read more
Well, yesterday was my first day on the Curves eating plan. I'm in Phase 1, which has me eating 1200 calories a day for seven days. Then I'll be moving into Phase 2.
I didn't get hungry AT ALL yesterday. In fact, I am thinking about moving ... Read more
Something I've been wanting to do for ages is join Curves. I finally did that a couple of weeks ago, and on Friday (my fifth workout) I got started on the CurveSmart Program. I am so excited about what this program can do for me if I continue go... Read more
November has been a crazy month. It was NaNoWriMo ( nanowrimo.org ) and I am a Municipal Liaison (ML), which means I organized in-person events all month. We have one more event coming up, on Saturday. The goal of the month is to... Read more
Well, I still need to tweak. Tomorrow I'm going to try my modifications to Monday-Wednesday-Friday. We'll see how that goes.
I'm not sure what's going to happen with the weekend; I'll decide later.
I started knitting a tea cosy today. ... Read more
Well, today was better than Monday. I ate too many carbs, though. Obviously I need to eat more protein at breakfast. So I will have to think about that and change things up for Friday (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are the same how I've done my ... Read more
Today was good. I had mozzarella cheese for my breakfast and wasn't hungry until lunch time! The only problem is that 4 oz of cheese is A LOT of cheese and really kind of gross. :P So when I have it again next week I'm going to have 2 oz only.

Well, so far so good. I need to tweak the diet some, though; I didn't eat anywhere NEAR enough today, and I was hungry a lot! I think I can fix that with juice "snacks" and twice as much salad and twice as much meat as I ate today. It actually w... Read more
Well, I'm completely sick of being stuck at 230 lbs. I've been stuck here since June or something, and I am DONE.
I have tried a number of things since I hit this plateau, and I'm so discouraged I stopped tracking and everything.
Well,... Read more
Ten years ago today, I embarked upon this strange and wonderful journey. It was the day I started my training in Lovaas-style Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). I was one member of a five-person team of therapists who would be coming in to the fa... Read more
