Tuesday, October 18, 2011      12 comments

I have recently felt like I have been in limbo after having my little man. Not really in the I-Can't-Exercise-Because-I-Jus
t-Had-A-Baby category, but not really in the I'm-Ready-To-Kill-It category either. It is certainly a frustrating pos... Read more

I *HAVE* Come Full Circle
Thursday, October 06, 2011      12 comments

It has been a rough couple of days on the homefront for me. Kids being kids, life being life and such. I won't go into the gory details but let's just say that I drug my can out of bed this morning not *really* wanting to exercise, but did so ... Read more
Adios, scale!
Sunday, October 02, 2011      7 comments

I am feeling so much better already. The scale is no more. It amazes me how quickly the mind job that the scale gives can throw me back into diet mode. Not a place for me. It is funny, I was thinking about intuitive eating and how much... Read more
Confessions - a tough blog to write. I am seeing myself for what I am.

It is amazing to me how quickly I find myself down a path I wish not to travel. I am laying out some brutal, honest confessions about myself. It isn't easy to look at myself for what I am sometimes. But I am happy that I can identify parts of... Read more

The Freedom of Not Being Perfect
Friday, September 16, 2011      8 comments

I am not perfect. Nobody is perfect. Do we strive for perfection? Should we even attempt it? Nope. We should not. Perfection is a goal that will never EVER be achieved. I have spent many hours of my life, my life on Spark (pre-pregnancy) ... Read more

This photo was taken on July 28th. Why is it important? Yeah, its a rainbow and rainbows are always pretty. This particular rainbow holds a strong symbolism for me. It... Read more
A Victory From Within the Closet
Tuesday, August 30, 2011      10 comments

Nothing quite invokes a range of emotions like trying on jeans. The sweat. The tears. The frustration. The agony. Will they fit? The increase of the heartrate as I work to pull them up. First over the knees. Safe! Then up the legs, SAFE... Read more
