Stress & Food, fighting the stress eating battle
Wednesday, March 09, 2016      0 comments

It's been a crazy week. Mostly good up until Monday. In the past week I took in a bunch of theatre (4 different shows), finished the theatre class I had been taking, and got kicked in the teeth at work. The big boss came up to once again address... Read more
Ecstatic but cautious celebration

Well two weeks of hard work, and resisting the urge to step on the scale, paid off. As of this morning I was down almost 9lbs, from 172 to 163.6! I know I can't get results like that every two weeks but it makes all of the resisted temptation... Read more

So tomorrow will be the last day of South Beach phase 1. For anyone who has done it, I'm sure you can identify with the feeling of being ready to murder a carbohydrate lol. It actually wasn't as bad as I expected from the last time I tried to do... Read more

So earlier this week I finished a 6 day staycation, the most time I've had off since I graduated college. I had all kinds of plans and I didn't get through most of them. Instead I watched a lot of TV, finished two modules of my online course, my... Read more

This lovely mix started last night so hopefully it's only a 24hr thing that will finish tonight. I cleaned and walked a lot at work, and cleaning is like heavy house work type cleaning, but did not get a Pilates workout in when I got home. Howev... Read more
Identifying the progress

A week in and things are going alright. I have only managed to get in one Pilates workout but I have gotten in a walk everyday and I have stayed within my prescribed calorie range. I keep kicking myself that I haven't done the Pilates but I get ... Read more
New Years non-resolutions
Thursday, December 31, 2015      3 comments

I don't believe in the whole 'New Years Resolution' but I do believe in goals. In my mind somehow slip-ups and setbacks are okay when working on a goal but not a resolution. A goal is also synonymous with a journey while a resolution seems to de... Read more
