A New Week

Monday, January 21, 2008      2 comments

There's something really cool about a new week. It's a fresh start, a chance to make even more good choices. I've now made very healthy choices for the past 4 days, but it's over now. Today is a whole new week. This week I will stay within... Read more

A Letter to Myself

Tuesday, January 01, 2008      4 comments

Dear Emily, What you have been doing is not working for you. You keep trying to do the same things over and over and hope that you will see a loss at the scale or looser clothes. That's not going to happen. You need to do something DIFFE... Read more

One year ago yesterday my mother died. I was thinking about the changes I've been through in the days since. There were some dark, dark days. I feel like there is at least a little sunshine on my path now. I enjoy things more. I scheduled my GRE... Read more

A Sign From The Weight Loss Gods........

Thursday, October 04, 2007      3 comments

Last Friday I was waiting for a parent who had scheduled a conference. The office called to tell me she was on her way and I went out into the hall to meet her. We looked at each other with recognition, but I couldn't figure out where I knew her... Read more

Checking In

Sunday, September 30, 2007      0 comments

I dropped the Community Tean from my Sparkteams pages because I felt I could not seriously hope to motivate others if I could not consistently motivate myself. I regret that now, and I'm not sure how to un-do that. See, maybe the best way to mot... Read more

I'm tired of them! I'm tired of thinking about food all of the freaking time! How many of this have I had, how many of I have a snack, can I eat brown rice if I had whole wheat pasta for lunch, is that 23 almonds?!?! Sheeeeeee... Read more

Perfectionism and Deep Thoughts

Saturday, September 15, 2007      2 comments

I have a tendency towards perfectionism. At first glance it doesn't seem like a bad thing. Trying to do your best is what it sounds like. That's not what it is. The quest for perfection has kept me from trying new things, going new places, stepp... Read more

Feeling A Little Better

Saturday, September 08, 2007      1 comments

I'm feeling a little more in control this week. We're having a "Biggest Loser" competition at work that I joined. The nurse measured my height and it came to 5'5". I always thought I was 5'8" so I was a bit shocked! It made my body fat % come to... Read more

Hubby and I had too much wine last night (we're both teachers and on vacation) and we felt pretty rough today. We started our day with eggs, hash browns, and toast for breakfast. Then, we had double cheeseburgers with bacon and onion rings for l... Read more

Thoughts on Being Sad

Thursday, July 26, 2007      1 comments

Last night DH and I were talking about how I'm coping with Mom's death. I said that I think I've been trying to ignore or mask the sadness, just waiting for it to be over. Maybe I just need to FEEL it. Maybe that's the key. I've been phasing out... Read more

Wow, I am struggling so much right nw. I know what to do, I just won't do it. I wanted to write "can't" there but I read somewhere years ago that when you say "can't" you really mean "won't". I believe that. We got the autopsy results for ... Read more
