Little, teeny-tiny, micro-update
Just checking in!! Things are good. I feel like I'm progressing. My running program isn't one of complete diligence, but I'm getting in swimming and walking instead, so that's PROGRESS in my book.
I hope everyone's doing well. Love you all... Read more
Well, it's been a weird couple of weeks. I alluded to some family drama about a week or so ago, and since then I actually went on a mini-vacation with them. It was just me, my sister, and my mom and dad.
It was a great trip.
My siste... Read more
After a weird weekend with lots of family drama and emotional exhaustion, it's somehow Wednesday already and this week is nearly over.
The family drama is being addressed (and my siblings and I are going to get together with the parents to... Read more
I'm coming out.
Well, I just got back from a secular recovery group meeting. While I already knew what kind of addiction I deal with (compulsive overeating), this meeting left me feeling SO hopeful and SO clear-headed.
I'm not here to proselytize or preach... Read more
Question for my Sparkrunning friends.
Do any of you own a Garmin? Is it worth it? What kind do you have?
I'm considering one, but I NEVER wear any kind of watch. I'm only just starting up running again, and would want something that's pretty low tech, but still informs me of mi... Read more
Finding my passion.
This has always been something that kind of eludes me. Passion.
I can throw myself into new hobbies or ideas or trends. I'll quickly realize that there's something about those things that isn't 100% me, and drop it easily. Maybe that's fo... Read more
Today was all right. After walking around yesterday in the heat, I noticed that my foot and ankle were still sore. That's what I get for walking around in sandals.
So I took it easy today - the most walking that I did was around Kohl's and... Read more
All in all, a good day. (and maybe advice?)
So I decided to weigh in this morning. And ... I'm up a pound and a half? Whatever. I kind of just shrugged it off, because I'm more proud of myself for getting back into some kind of a workout routine and I know that I'm eating better these day... Read more
Listen all y'all, it's a sabotage.
Today's entry is in memory of MCA from Beastie Boys. He was only 47! Rest in peace. Cancer sucks.
Well, it's only my 2nd full day back on Sparkpeople again. I spent a lot of time yesterday stalk-, er, visiting friends pages and catching up ... Read more
Well, a LOT has changed in the last year. Things are good. Things are different. I feel a lot more ME now. I'm still on this weight-loss journey, but the last year has been more about discovering strengths, admitting my faults, and using the rig... Read more
OA meeting updates:
I hope I don't sound like I've joined a cult or anything. Going to the meetings, I really feel like I belong there, that I'm not alone in dealing with my disorder, and that continuing my recovery through OA will be a spi... Read more
First OA meeting
Last night I went to my first OA meeting.
It was awesome. I felt like I belonged there, and came away hopeful. I also hugged a lot of people.
I'm working the steps and doing things one day at a time. I think a key part of this will b... Read more
Last week was crazy. The weekend was crazier. Just a quick update to check in, to let ya'll know I'm still here.
I'm figuring out balance in my life right now. I think Overeaters Anonymous will be super helpful in that aspect. I spent yest... Read more
Whoa, there. (self-talk)
So, as excited as I am to get back into good habits and to take control again, I have to also keep in mind that I'm not going to be able to hit the ground running again like I might want to.
And this is okay.
It's a gradual start.

It counts, right?
Two days of tracking food and I've done relatively well. I went over a bit on sodium yesterday - and didn't get enough protein the first day. But I stayed in calorie ranges, which is good enough for me now.
So I've been consistent for two ... Read more
