Friday got a bit fried.
I was eating completely on plan until dinner. We went out to dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I had grilled fish tacos. Order came with two, I ate one. Drank water, not a margarita. BUT - I did eat chips with green sauce and I ate ... Read more
Habits not Hunger - Day 4
I ate within my calorie range today, but it felt like a restriction. I wanted to eat more, especially tonight after dinner. I'm not sure (and how is this even possible????) if I was really hungry, or just craving food like a habit, like a pos... Read more
Gonna have to face it, I'm addicted to food
Day 3. Yesterday I ate 25 calories over my limit. I still consider it a success, considering I'm sure I was consuming at least 500-800 calories a day over that limit just a couple of weeks ago. But that's not why I'm blogging.

Two positive choices on one day
Today I went for a 30 minute walk immediately after arising. I had told my trainer I would, and that pretty much was the motivation - along with acknowledging that this one good choice would help me feel better emotionally because I actually fo... Read more
Renew, restart, recommit, really!
"Fall seven times, get up eight." So they say, and so I'm doing. It's the first of June, and I have a lot to be thankful for and a lot of reasons to get back on track. As usual, I find I'm actually more motivated to health when I'm feeling be... Read more
