The First Real "I Can't Do That.." Because I'm Fat
Tuesday, July 11, 2017      17 comments

My sister-in-law and her family are visiting for a week. They, along with my husband, are currently at a theme park. I'm at home. Not because I don't love roller coasters (I really really do love them), but because I'm too fat to fit on them. An... Read more

Summer is always my chance to get organized, to get life back in order. My hope for this summer is to get some menu planning done so it's one less thing to be able to procrastinate on during the school year; with meals planned and grocery lists ... Read more
I Can Be Fit?
Monday, May 22, 2017      3 comments

I always expected to feel fit after many months of intense training. I've done the 21 Day Fix before, and don't get me wrong, I lost weight and felt better, but I didn't think of myself as "fit" at the end of it. I haven't been doing any ex... Read more

StepBets are awesome! It has increased my steps so much by having a daily/weekly goal to accomplish. I feel like my energy has increased too in the last little while. I think the next big thing I need to work on is learning to love fitness ... Read more
Just a LIttle Brain Shift...

All it took was ... - 18 years of on-again off-again dieting, with an overall GAIN of over 90 lbs - 1 year in therapy - 1 moment in the shower debating types of shower gel... To realize that I am worth it. I am worth making healthy... Read more
Never Let It Go

My visit to the naturopathic doctor was mostly out of curiosity; I like the idea of holistic wellness, of being preventative rather than reactionary to illness, and the idea that everything is connected. I mentioned my main concerns as weight lo... Read more
A New Approach

I visited a naturopathic doctor for the first time today. It was quite interesting. I really had no idea what to expect, but she just asked tons of questions (I was there for over an hour). And she connected a few things that made sense to me. S... Read more

Feeling a bit like deja vu; had a good day, then came home and snacked when I shouldn't have. But progress: it was a smaller snack than yesterday? At least that's good? I'm struggling with the concept of having a "deadline" for my goal. I a... Read more

I had a good day. Then I came home, walked in the kitchen with intentions of making dinner and prepping breakfast for tomorrow, and saw the box of Golden Grahams on the counter. I was the prime example for product placement. And I ate 4 (or was ... Read more
Day 158: It Just Gets Worse
Sunday, June 07, 2015      2 comments

My frame of mind is in such a bad place right now. Almost every day, I just notice more and more how bad it is. I have less and less self confidence (and I had thought it was already pretty low). I dislike my body more and more (which I know I s... Read more

It's been a rough week or so. Things just went from bad to worse. We were on strike for 5.5 weeks and then suddenly ordered back to work by the government (not even going to get into how awful that is). Tough to get back into a work routine... Read more

Saturday, May 16, 2015      0 comments

Usually I plan things. Well in advance. But today I went on a whim. I was suddenly compelled to start running again, so I did. I found my Ease Into 5k podcast and I completed Week 1 Day 1. Just like that. I figure I haven't ran in almost 2 ... Read more

Thursday, May 14, 2015      2 comments

Yet another day were I had no choice but to eat out, and I chose well once again. I'm getting good at making wise decisions at restaurants, which is something I use to be awful at! I took every restaurant visit as a treat meal, no matter how oft... Read more

Monday, May 11, 2015      2 comments

I feel pretty amazing today. I was nervous about the weekend. I was meeting a friend in Toronto for a comedy night followed by a baseball game the next day. I knew it would mean several meals out, and the possibility of dangerous snacks. ... Read more
Day 124: Don't Break The Seal
Monday, May 04, 2015      5 comments

Not to pick on any particular brand of potato chip... But I am discovering that there is a whole lot of truth to the marketing "Betcha can't eat just one!". And not just for chips. I am now entering my 3rd week on strike, so it's the picket... Read more
