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

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

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

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

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

Weight-wise, I'm right back where I started the year, 223 lbs. Not impressive in the least. And I'm really feeling it. I feel old, I feel unhealthy, I feel big. I made my goal for May lofty. For each day, 8 glasses of water and 5 different ... Read more

Saturday, April 11, 2015      2 comments

I feel like I'm just angry at the world anymore. I feel like I am so helpless in making things better, and it just makes me angrier. Work makes me angry. There just seems to always be more and more hoops to jump through and less time/energy... Read more
