Trusting and investing in myself

Sunday, March 16, 2014      5 comments

I've been noticing some changes in my body lately. Pants and shirts that were too tight are fitting again. I can pull my yoga pants up smoothly over my hips instead of needing to tug on them. I have an easier time getting up from the floor (I am... Read more

I'm done with self-hatred, because I'm awesome and I deserve better.

Saturday, March 08, 2014      4 comments

It's been about 10 weeks since I've started this latest effort to make some positive changes in my life. I'm feeling really good about the progress I've made, not just on the scale and in the mirror, but in my head. I remember writing a blog pos... Read more

750 minutes :)

My fitness goal for February was 600 minutes...just logged another 15, which brings my total this month to 750 minutes!! Go, me!... Read more

Sick, but not defeated!

Thursday, February 13, 2014      8 comments

I got sick this week, for the first time in months. It's some kind of chest-cold virus thing with lots of congestion, nose-blowing, sneezing, and now coughing. I felt bad enough to call off work on Tuesday, went back yesterday and regretted it ... Read more

My new sneakers are rocking my world.

Saturday, February 08, 2014      7 comments

New sneakers! Finally, a pair of shoes that don't kill my feet, so I can actually WALK again! I am loving it. The ball of my foot on the right is pain-free, and the plantar fasciitis flare-up on my left foot is getting better. Hallelujah. I ha... Read more

Progress and an emotional dump (This is a long one. Read at your own risk.)

Sunday, February 02, 2014      4 comments

I weighed in this morning and was surprised to see another pound gone. I have reached my first goal, to have my weight below 260! It feels good to see those numbers drop. Today I was at 259.4 and my next goal is to be below 250. Right now, I a... Read more

500 fitness minutes! Yay, me!

Monday, January 27, 2014      7 comments

Yay! I hit 500 fitness minutes tonight! My original goal for the month was 300, but when I passed that, I decided to go for 500. I'm proud of myself. I haven't done 500 minutes in a looooooong time, so it feels really good to have met my goal.... Read more

Check in :)

I know it's not all about the scale, but, boy, did it feel good to step on this morning and see that I am down 5 pounds! It was just such a nice surprise. I am setting short-term weight goals for myself, because long-term is too overwhelming. ... Read more

Thoughts, reflections, and progress

Tuesday, January 21, 2014      6 comments

I've definitely become more able to control my compulsion to eat while I am fixing myself meals or snacks. And I'm not talking about just snacking a little bit on some veggies or snitching a little pinch of cheese. I'm talking EATING - like some... Read more

I ate some crap and my body knows it. There is a bright side, however.

Tuesday, January 14, 2014      5 comments

Yeah, I ate some crap today, namely, a processed chicken patty sandwich that the kids in my class were eating for lunch. I was sooo hungry and it was hot and crispy and it looked good. I thought about not eating it, but I really wanted it. I tol... Read more

My new podcast obsession and a shift in my thinking

Wednesday, January 08, 2014      7 comments

My husband bought me an iPod for Christmas and I am in love with it! I love listening to podcasts, especially when I am doing things I don't particularly enjoy, like housework and driving. I downloaded lots of podcasts about health and weight-l... Read more

I've noticed a bad habit

Sunday, January 05, 2014      9 comments

I've just become aware of a very bad habit that I've dubbed "pre-eating." When I'm making something to eat, or serving myself something, I have a terrible habit of eating part of whatever food I'm preparing. Then I go ahead and eat the portion I... Read more

I CAN!

Friday, January 03, 2014      7 comments

I've been in a self-pity shame spiral lately, and I'm getting sick of it. I posted in November about working on making better choices. Unfortunately, I didn't work very hard at it. Instead, I chose to sit around, eat a bunch of crap, drink too ... Read more

Being nice to myself, continued

Monday, November 11, 2013      9 comments

This weekend, I bought shirts. I know, not exactly earth-shattering news, but it's not something I normally do. I tend to acquire new clothes haphazardly, at a thrift store, or at some massive clearance sale. They tend to be plain, scoop-neck or... Read more
