I know, I know, to quote my mother, "sh*t or get off the pot."
Doesn't that say something about my upbringing?
Anyway, I've been mulling over Whole30 for a few days. I've read some labels and I found the book at the library. I'm about ... Read more
Not so unexpected accomplishments: Month One
July brought some unexpected accomplishments - though as I typed "unexpected" I realize that if we're basing the adjective on my work in comparison to previous months, it was expected I just typically don't attribute much self-worth to myself or... Read more
I should be working, but my wonderful and crazy weekend has me brimming with thoughts. Not to mention I find procrastination a wonderful thing (when I can).
My thought compilation:
1.) What is it about the extra 20 seconds it takes to ... Read more
I'd like to preface this entry with the delightful fact that my daughter and I had two wonderful days - one with my mother at the beach and the other with my husband at the zoo and little post lunch with my in-laws. They were great experiences f... Read more
"The human heart has secret treasures: in secret kept, in silence sealed."
I appear to be getting myself back on track after last week's "stay-cation," which is a silly way to phrase it because I was never "off track" so much as just not tracking. But I'm two days back into the swing of things and tracking (successfull... Read more
This past week I survived a family stay-cation, a birthday, and my mother.
Within that survival I didn't exactly track food or exercise, but did make the conscious effort to maintain portions and nutrients in at least 2 meals a day and move... Read more
Moderation is the new weight loss.
My status today indicated that I wasn't able to blog, which was because I knew I needed to leave the house immediately if I was going to commit to a swim workout this morning. And, thankfully, I did.
I woke up this morning - and quite frank... Read more
Reflection is a funny thing
This go around is so much more about moderation than any other weight loss, yet I find the 1 pound loss this week so disheartening. I know this is ridiculous because I'm not throwing myself into an extreme calorie counting exercising like a mad ... Read more
At long last, solitude
It's 8:54 and the house is absolutely silent.
I haven't had the opportunity to sit in solitude since well before my daughter was born, as my husband works from home. But not today. Today he is working in an office and dropped my daughter at... Read more
A different type of exhaustion
Today I am exhausted - from an awesome 2500 yard swim in 40 minutes.
I was by no means motivated, but I know that while I will be tired and a touch sore in the second half of the day I will feel better. Quite the contradiction, I know. But ... Read more
I am exhausted.
It feels selfish to be complaining via blog on the 4th of July. I feel I should preface this writing with that so that if you are reading and thinking, "Wow. How self-absorbed is this girl?" or "Where are her priorities?" - because, after all I ... Read more
Learning from the past, a narrative cliche.
Every morning I start with measuring and tracking and weighing and writing. And it's great. But every evening the thoughts creep up, after my daughter goes to bed and the television is finally on - the thoughts that start debating what I should ... Read more
Writing for writing's sake
This feels very deja-vu, as I've traveled this road so frequently in my life, and so perhaps these blogs are as well. Nevertheless, writing is a component in my weight loss that is absolutely necessary - I've used it to avoid eating, to satiate ... Read more
Welcome back, Carly
I became the cliche - the silent Spark page - and quickly slipped back into old habits and old excuses, despite my very new life.
And I've had a handful of these blogs over the past year - the biggest mistake being my incessant need to apol... Read more
Apologies to my SP friends
There are a few apologies I feel should be out there, but really let's just get down to it:
I have let myself go.
It's time to start this process over. I've reset all my goals and measurements and will be stepping on the scale first th... Read more
