Whole30: The aftermath

Thursday, April 09, 2015      0 comments

So it’s ten days post whole30, and one thing I was really scared about was how my relationship was going to be with food after whole30. I have to admit I was a bit nervous to start introducing foods back into my system—would I feel sick, wou... Read more

Whole30 Recap

Tuesday, March 31, 2015      2 comments

This month I did something I never thought I would do: the whole30. There were many reasons why I didn’t want to do it: I don’t like restrictive eating plans, I didn’t feel confident as a cook, I had no IDEA what I could cook, and I don’... Read more

1/3 of the way through!

I've been really enjoying Whole30. It definitely hasn't been the "deprivation" experience that I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong...I miss cookies...and cakes...and candy. I still like those things, and I think I always will. There's noth... Read more

This month of Whole30 FORBIDS me from getting back on the scale. Can you believe it? If I weight myself it says I should start over. Um, no thanks! So, here I am done with the first week and no weigh in whatsoever. Which leaves me with some NSVs... Read more

So it's been a hot minute since I've been on here. I was trying to be pretty active and post regularly, but I got myself in a bit of a situation--mainly I started the Whole30 cleanse this Monday! A friend of mine who did it before mentioned she ... Read more

Am I Enough?

Sunday, March 01, 2015      5 comments

So my roommate posted this Ted Talk (see bottom of the page. 20 minutes well worth it!!) with Brene Brown a few days ago, and it totally blew my mind. Ive been trying to put into words the changes that Im starting to see in myself this year wi... Read more

Managing the road

Thursday, February 19, 2015      0 comments

I am so proud of myself! Last week (and this week) I had a crazy busy week. Something every evening, and then I went away for the long weekend. Success--I actually did my run on vacation in hilly Portland. I was out of breath, and not feeling pe... Read more

Feeling it

Monday, February 09, 2015      2 comments

Today was my official weigh in! I weigh myself pretty much every day because I like to see progress and also how my eating/activities are affecting me. It's a good motivator for me either way, and I enjoy it. Yesterday I weighed myself and... Read more

Nothing Feels Better

Saturday, February 07, 2015      1 comments

Nothing feels better than making good choices for myself. Seriously. Knowing that I'm taking care of my body, and putting my health first. It makes me feel so happy. I ran 3 days this week, and did yoga 2 days. I'm getting a little teary as I wr... Read more

Be Bold, Be Kind

Wednesday, February 04, 2015      2 comments

Yesterday I tracked my calories really well in the morning, then had a little bit of a blowout in the evening. Definitely had friends over and overindulged in skittles and flatbread pizza. Instead of being filled with self loathing, afterwards, ... Read more

Loving Myself

Tuesday, February 03, 2015      2 comments

It's no secret that I've had my ups and downs on this journey. I started strong in 2010, and then over the past few years have let my motivation wane and am now back up to 243lbs. I know how I got here, not being consistent, and not making bette... Read more

No Matter What

Thursday, December 11, 2014      1 comments

Day 4! I didn't read my 100DOWL book yesterday so I read two chapters today. Chapter three talked about staying on our plan no matter what. I really like that it emphasized that we may not feel like doing it, but we do it anyways. Much like when... Read more

Feeling good!

Wednesday, December 10, 2014      1 comments

Day three of tracking, eating better, and exercising. I'm feeling more and more motivated as I get myself up and practice good habits. I didn't read the book this morning (but I will tonite)! I did get up despite already wanting to take a rest d... Read more

Interested Vs. Committed

Tuesday, December 09, 2014      2 comments

Day two of 100 days. I feel much better after my emotional start yesterday. Things are starting to click in my head, like NOT eating the snacks in the staff room and tracking all my calories. One day at a time, 1-0, is my mantra. Yesterday, I wo... Read more

I used to be that way

Monday, December 08, 2014      2 comments

So this year has been the year that I've been facing a lot of my demons. It's been emotional, scary, and pretty un-fun. I'm almost 30, and am finding that there's a lot of hidden insecurities and pain that I did...and didn't realize where there.... Read more
