Change it Up
This weekend, I went to visit my grandparents on the farm. It's not a producing farm, anymore, but there are still any number of chores that they need my help with. From helping care for the horses, tending the garden, and learning to dig hole... Read more
Healing and Happiness
I am loving my life right now. Seriously. I may be overweight, but I refuse to let it slow me down any longer. What a change from a few months ago!
I am taking one more college course, and then I will officially graduate in December. I ... Read more
I've had a streak of good days, lately. I'm taking care of myself, studying for a couple of incompletes, and spending time with people I love.
It's been a while since I really thought about taking care of myself. For weeks, I simply didn... Read more
Learning from my Mistakes
My therapist is helping me a great deal, and I am more capable of tending to everyday life these past few days. I am incredibly lucky to have people around me who understand what I am dealing with, and who are willing to help me through. My fa... Read more
Lately, it's been difficult to focus on weight loss, because so many other things are happening. I'm graduating with my Bachelor of Science in a month, but I'm not happy about it. I don't deal well with change, and this one has thrown me back... Read more
Food Equals Love
There are a few people in my life who are consciously supportive of my weight-loss plan, but unconsciously sabotaging it. They all mean well, but I live in the Midwest, where many people were raised to equate food with love. My friends and I h... Read more
Isn't it always the case that illness strikes when you can least afford to be sick? This time, I gained weight, instead of losing it. However, as I'm getting better, I'm struck by a new sense of determination. Yes, I put on weight, but so wha... Read more
Sat Myself Down for a Good Long Talk
I have been going to the gym fairly steadily for the last few weeks, and feeling great about it! I can already tell I'm adding muscle, and I feel healthier overall.
But last night, I just could. Not. Sleep. I finally fell asleep around ... Read more
Not Slowing Down!

Back in the Saddle
This spring was very tough, due to illness, schedule, and family crises, including an emergency surgery for a beloved pet. Thankfully, everything turned out all right in the end. I sought counseling for mental illness, dropped a few activities... Read more
Beautiful Rainy Day
It's funny. I feel most inspired on rainy days.
Even if I can't walk the dog (she will not, repeat WILL NOT go outside in the rain), I have plenty of indoor things to do. I can clean house. I can put in a PopPhysique DVD. I even have ... Read more
I had a wonderful holiday week. I celebrated Yule by myself, with peace, meditation, and prayer. Then, I celebrated Christmas with my mom by going to Indiana to pick up her new dog. He is an all-white Alaskan husky, who stands about three fee... Read more
That Time of the Year
If you're not in the mood for a ranty blog, read no further. I am going to be grumpy.
I feel selfish saying it, but I really detest the holiday season. I love winter, I love cold, I love snow, and I love being able to curl up with the dog... Read more
Wait... I can breathe?
This weekend, the diet went completely out the window. I was so freakishly busy that I sometimes didn't even know what I was supposed to be doing.
I should probably explain that I'm a student worker in the Commencement department of my uni... Read more
Time Wasting and Procrastinating
Hmmm. Ways I waste time. Internet, television, Twitter, and sitting mindlessly on the couch. Yeah.
Let's imagine that I limit myself to one hour of surfing the net each day. How much more could I get done? How much more could I pamper... Read more
