So frustrated.

2.5 months, roughly, of working out with the trainer. I'm UP seven pounds, everyone keeps telling me to just be patient and I'm thinking HELLO 196??? I'm exercising & watching what I eat, why am I gaining???? I've been taking my progress ph... Read more

Being hard on myself

Wednesday, November 20, 2013      2 comments

I'm an insomniac. It's miserable, but it rarely affects my day too badly (beyond making more trips to the coffee maker!) Today was not one of those days. When 6 am rolled around and I was still awake - and knew that my alarm for my work out... Read more

The Wheel Turns

Day 1 with the trainer. He said he went easy on me so I wouldn't feel like I'd been hit by a truck tomorrow - three hours later, I'm feeling fine except OMG the seat on their exercise bike is terrible. So bad, I'm tempted to bring my own, except... Read more

I knew having a hysterectomy would derail my exercise routine. I had no idea how much. I started trying to lose weight at 185, I just wanted to go down 20 pounds, to the top of "normal" by BMI. I got down below 170, but not quite there... Read more

I'm setting myself a not-weight-loss-related goal. So often I've said “Yeah, I need to blog more, I need to write more” and yet, somehow it never happens. Today I'm setting a goal – nay, a challenge - for myself, 15 minutes every day. Fifte... Read more

I've known for several years that my self-esteem is... well, lacking. I sell myself short constantly. I denigrate my creative projects. Any negative commentary I take to heart and decide it means that I just can't do whatever. I've decided,... Read more

The good news is, I've gotten at least 30 minutes of exercise in every day since Saturday (hey, three days is more than I did last week!) The bad news is... due to some severe family stress I'm catching myself stress eating a LOT more than ... Read more
