I did it - 1500 minutes again!
I like me some SparkPeople trophies. Some of them don't do much for me - SparkPoints, for example, since it feels so easy to get a lot of them now (I got almost 2000 in September only, and I'm not particularly active); but the fitness minutes on... Read more
On losing focus
On a totally unrelated starting note, there's this weird ad on SP right now for "Fit 4 Less" and I see two of them right now. One of them has a guy in it - he's looking rather ridiculous in his 80's-inspired gym clothes, knee-high socks matching... Read more
Your thoughts on trigger foods?
Yesterday I had like a thousand pieces of candy in the afternoon. UGH.
Okay, not a thousand, but at least ten, and probably more like fifteen. Last weekend I went grocery shopping in Yorkton and sometimes I'll buy $5 worth of candy to fill ... Read more
Managing through tough times
I'm trying. I really am trying my best, and I think I've been doing great in the last few days.
Last week started out rough food-wise. After giving in to a bag of chips (half of it Saturday, the other half Sunday), and then giving in again ... Read more
Binging now vs binging before
Yesterday wasn't my most glorious day food-wise, far from it.
Yet I can't help but compare this "disastrous" day to the kind of behavior I had 3-4 years ago, when I could easily go through there quarters of a box of Oreo cookies in one sitting... Read more
How to deal with a new life
It's a little crazy to think that a week ago, I had no idea where I was going or what I was going to do with my life. I'd left my boyfriend two days before, and it was Labor Day, so I was just home, thinking, trying to just let time pass until I... Read more
The first time in my life I nurse my feelings without food
So tomorrow will mark a week of being single again, a week into my one-year-celibate wish (I will stop counting after that. LOL!) and also the last day I spend hauling stuff out of the farmhouse I was sharing with my ex and into my tiny cozy apa... Read more
Well, I'm single, again.
I'll make this short as I know it's pretty personal and of no big interest to anyone on SP...
But last weekend my (ex)boyfriend and I broke up. Well, I broke up with him. That was Saturday. Ensued two days of uncertainties, crying and stres... Read more
Oops, did I fail?
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
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!
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
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
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
You can't have the cake and eat it too
Recently my favorite beauty blogger (www.maskcara.com) 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
