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
I want to look like this!
It started in my teens that I was uncomfortable in my own body. When I was a kid I never gave much thought to what I looked like, and I don't remember comparing myself to anyone but my older sister. I just remember being taller than everyone at ... Read more
Weekly check-in. Not beating myself up over everything.
Okay, overall last week was a real rollercoaster, but I had a very good weekend.
Last week I posted about being immensely stressed about having to find a job. I'm moving to Estevan in less than six weeks and couldn't really find anything on... Read more
I'm all about respect, but I should also respect myself.
When I think about what I value most in life, it always comes down to respect. I think respect is actually a very basic value for most people (but a lot of them don't live by it, which is sad).
I've had a rough week, a very stressful one. E... Read more
Weekly check-in. My future apartment. Calming down.
I had a pretty good week last week. Nothing spectacular - just good.
I revisited all four Core Habits of Lean Habits and wrote down what I think I'm doing right and what needs improvement. Overall, I'm doing pretty awesome! I'm above 85% wi... Read more
The power of words: how I'm losing weight by changing my vocabulary
I love starting blog posts with a nice clickbait title! Lol!
Okay, disclaimer, it's not the ONLY way I'm losing weight. I'm also moving my body in ways that I enjoy (for me that's lifting weights, a bit of cardio at the gym, walking, yoga, ... Read more
Self-image. A weird dream.
Almost every morning I remember what I dreamed during the night. Sometimes it's just little pieces, sometimes it's a long story. I always have very vivid dreams and not always pleasant. Most of them never really make sense, aren't logical and ar... Read more
Weekly check-in: the effects of stress on my eating habits
I had somewhat of a big breakthrough last week. Thursday, I quit my job.
Okay, it sounds way more dramatic than it is, hahaha. It's something I knew had to be done soon. My boyfriend and I live far away from each other (it's a 3 hours drive... Read more
Weekly check in. Simplicity, in all and everything.
Last week was loooong. I hadn't worked a 5-days week in a long time - first Friday I took a sick day, the second Friday I took off for my friend's visit and the last one was a holiday - so it felt like forever, hahaha. But, I did pretty well wit... Read more
