Oops, did I fail?

Tuesday, September 01, 2015      2 comments

Reading my friend ALP1976's blog, "Subtle Changes" had me reflect on my own journey. For over two years now I've maintained my weight. It did go up a little at the beginning of 2013 because of dealing with emotional stuff and getting in a n... Read more

Brace yourself - FALL is coming

Saturday, August 29, 2015      2 comments

This time of the year has always been bittersweet for me. I have no idea why - nothing "traumatic" ever happened to me (outside of having to go back to school...) so I don't know. But for as long as I can remember I've always become a little dep... Read more

Whiney morning lol!

Thursday, August 27, 2015      2 comments

So I usually log into SparkPeople 2-3 times a day. I used to do it every morning but when I started going to the gym that pretty much stopped. On non-gym days I try to avoid using the computer too much in the morning since I'm staring at a scree... Read more

The importance of reminders

Tuesday, August 25, 2015      1 comments

Last Sunday I decided I would read Georgie Fear's Lean Habits again up to where I was (Habit 3) because I needed reminders. Reminders of why I was doing this, but also HOW. Last week it felt like I just forgot how to do it, and then, forgot wh... Read more

I have this weird thing with weekends. Either I totally cruise through them without a problem and I do better in two days than in the five days spent at work before. Or, like this weekend, I just happen to forego absolutely everything I know and... Read more

Lean Habit No 3

Thursday, August 20, 2015      2 comments

So yesterday I spent the evening with my boyfriend and I forgot to read the third Lean Habit's chapter ONCE AGAIN. Terrible memory lol! I think it doesn't help that the book is burried under a pile of papers on my desk. Well, this morning w... Read more

Recently my favorite beauty blogger ( made a post about that expression and why she never liked it. My first language is French and I started learning intensive English when I was 11 (and now live in a town where maybe two peopl... Read more

Over a week without a blog entry! Oh my! What's happening! Hahaha at least I'm not polluting your feed everyday now ;P Last week was rough. I got into a terrible, huge fight with my boyfriend on Tuesday night and came close to ending the re... Read more

I'm having a rough start to the week. But first things first. Last week's been pretty blah. I've been waking up with a sore throat and feeling somewhat gruggish for a week and I think there's a cold trying to settle in right now. I've been ... Read more

Do you have to be social at the gym?

Wednesday, August 05, 2015      10 comments

When I moved here to the middle of Canada one of the things I had to change was my behavior in social settings. Here, everybody is extremely friendly; they all waive at each other in the street or while driving, and everybody knows each other. I... Read more

When August comes around I always get the blues a little - and it gets way worse in September. This year I'm really trying to ignore it but it always feels like Summer goes by so freaking fast. But at the same time I can't really complain since ... Read more

I was pretty quick to go back to normal habits, and it feels great. I felt super tired Tuesday, better Wednesday, and today I'm actually feeling great. Yesterday morning I set my alarm to 6 as usual. I wanted to go for a run. I hadn't ran i... Read more

Okay I wasn't really "gone", but here's what happened in short :) So my last update was Monday of last week. Tuesday I spent the day at work, and right after supper I left for Winnipeg. Four hours of driving later I got to the airport tired... Read more

So today marks my first day of practicing the Lean Habit #2: Hunger Mastery. Long story short, it means not being afraid of hunger, adjusting your portions so that you feel your hunger build up 30 to 60 minutes before your next meal. Sinc... Read more

Day 12 of Lean Habit One (eat 3-4 meals a day without snacking) and I've been doing great so far. The only day I haven't followed the habit was last Saturday (ice cream 2 hours after supper with my nieces) and now today. Friday last we... Read more
