Monday, June 13, 2016      2 comments

As a follow-up to my last blog... It will only work if the belief that I am beautiful and love my body completely saturates my self-talk and self-concept. If every time I think "You'll look great when you lose five/ten/xxx pounds" or "keep work... Read more

Progress
Thursday, April 07, 2016      4 comments

I can see some progress in my workouts. This morning I noticed that my plank form has improved, and I feel stronger doing it too. I feel good about this because it means that my entire upper body is getting stronger. It's nice because I have bee... Read more

So homesick
Sunday, April 03, 2016      4 comments

I just want to go home. I hate this city, I hate this job. Coming here was a giant mistake, a never ending nightmare. I would rather go back to working at the grocery store if it would mean being with my family. I should never have come here. I ... Read more

Today I asked my mom and my aunt not to send me packets of precooked/pre seasoned rice and noodles as presents. I know they aren't good for me and they make my stomach feel bad. I felt so ungrateful and it was hard to speak up because I know tha... Read more

Today, I prevented myself from scarfing down one of the bagels that Sr Tech brought in "for International Women's Day" yesterday...despite the fact that they're not that tasty and also I don't eat anything she brings in "for the group" because I... Read more
