NSV: food won't solve my problems
I know so, so many people who are emotional eaters. It's so widespread. And I remember that I used to consider it normal. Food was soothing. Whenever I faced stress, I'd eat. It did make me feel better - for a very short period of time. Then the... Read more
Of forgiveness, moving on, and loving myself
I will never be perfect. Nobody will ever be perfect.
Yet for most of my life that's what I shot for. Perfection. And, obviously, I could never achieve it. And I hated myself for that.
It took me a long time to put words unto it, to un... Read more
Reality check: at the gym, nobody cares about you
So I went to the gym this morning.
At last. At last I had a full workout. I feel awesome right now. Truly I missed it.
I moved to a new city on June 4th, a Saturday. I started my new job two days later (June 6th). The next day, I took ... Read more
To create a habit, tell a good story
Leo Babauta wrote an excellent article a couple days ago on his blog:
The timing for me was simply perfect.
As I've said in my last couple blogs, my habits have been thrown out the window since I moved thr... Read more
Feels like I blew it...
I'm bloated. I gained weight (at least it looks like it in the mirror). I'm constantly exhausted.
Since I moved I feel like I threw all my habits out the window. And in the last couple days it's been easy to feel despair and to blame myself... Read more
Trying to find a routine
So it's been two weeks since I moved. It feels like two months with all that we got done, lol.
Last week was more and more tiring. I was pretty much just waiting for the weekend to arrive. I wanted to sleep in, to have some time to do nothi... Read more
Swamped, but hanging on
I used to highly value being super busy without a second to think. Now I despise it. I miss my calm, boring life, lol! But it's only been a week and a half since I moved and it's slowly settling.
Truth: I am stressed, very highly stressed. ... Read more
The big move is done and I'm exhausted
So last Saturday I moved. It was a stressful week and now is another one, even more stressful.
The move itself went well. My boyfriend got to my place Friday, we delivered some furniture back to people I'd borrowed from. The next day we fin... Read more
An excellent GGS article on control
I fell in love with Girls Gone Strong maybe just a month ago. I'd always heard about it but never checked it out. I guess it didn't help that I didn't REALLY fall in l... Read more
Celebrating the NSVs: not buying chips
I've had a very stressful, emotional weekend laden with a bit of depression.
Okay, I spent the whole afternoon and evening in bed Saturday. That hadn't happened in a very long time. It came from NOWHERE. I think it's a combination of things... Read more
NO, I'm NOT dieting
Something happened yesterday.
I saw my ex's mom for the first time in months. I saw her briefly at an art show in town about three weeks ago, but other than that I hadn't seen her since maybe February, maybe even before. I used to work for ... Read more
I'm not sure if I've blogged about this before but yesterday while having a second serving of ice cream (yup - guilt-free - finally) I was thinking about my "food epiphanies". Now when I list them and think about them they kinda seem obvious, bu... Read more
I haven't blogged in three weeks because I didn't feel I had anything to say. I deleted my last blog post after it raised too much concern from everybody for no reason. And then I just didn't wanna blog anymore. Sometimes I think such breaks are... Read more
Weekly check-in. Barging into Spring.
I feel great, great, great!!!
Usually when I feel this way it doesn't last. I never even expect it to last - I accepted long ago the fact that life is made of ups and downs, and that not every day has to be extraordinary (unlike social medi... Read more
I'm eating a TON of food and I'm LOVING it
Almost two weeks ago I added Lean Habit #5 to my tracker. The goal of the habit is to have 2-3 cups of non-starchy vegetables with every meal. However, I was pushing this habit and never starting it just because I didn't know what to do with bre... Read more
