Spent time cleaning a bit and went grocery shopping; both of which are not at the top of my favorite things to do list. I really dislike grocery shopping. I always have a list and I can stick to it pretty well, but what seems like endless walkin... Read more

This weekend I woke up on Saturday knowing that I was going to eat whatever I wanted, not thinking that I would really go off the deep end. I ate a lot of processed carbs and almost doubled my calorie intake from the guideline. Sunday was a bit ... Read more

This week has been great! I have not had this many good days in so long I can’t even remember. I saw my p-doc on Monday and reviewed my medication and tweaked them a bit and I have been doing great all week. Although I do attribute a big part of... Read more

Today a client came to pick up her pup after being in Hawaii for the past two weeks and she brought me two boxes of chocolate macadamia nut clusters. I was almost hurt or disappointed. I appreciated the thoughtfulness of the gift, but all I coul... Read more

I had a terrible night’s sleep and woke with a headache and nausea. Yuck. So my head tells me to go to McDonald’s for breakfast. What? Where did that come from? I have a conversation in my head about how I have eaten a great breakfast everyday t... Read more

Eat, sleep and exercise. Sounds easy enough, but it often seems overwhelming and then I just don’t do anything. The last couple of days have been pretty good. I am eating well, but I am having a difficult time getting all my calories in when jus... Read more
