justification station
Friday, August 19, 2011      3 comments

Ok, I spent yesterday with my train stuck in justification station, and in order to move ON, I decided to post this blog this morning. To get it all out - I wasn't going to, but then read BeckyB's "just say it" blog and realized that I have to ... Read more
Why is it so hard to give myself credit?
Thursday, August 11, 2011      7 comments

I hit the 5lb mark today. And while I should be celebrating, and am forcing myself to, there's the freak inside me who says, big deal. Big fat hairy deal. Look at all the people who have lost 100. Look at how many times you've lost 5 and then ga... Read more
The Great Incomplete Binge Experiment
Wednesday, August 10, 2011      9 comments

I have been doing really well with my binge triggers, rerouting them to build healthier habits, etc. So I thought maybe I'm strong enough to give myself a test. I bought some cheetos, one of my binge foods, and some pepperidge farm dark choc chi... Read more
Hawk on my page represents
Sunday, August 07, 2011      5 comments

The hawk on my spark page represents so much to me now. I met my first-ever goal of a 21-day binge-free streak. So, I decided to give myself the gift of a photo-shoot of this pair of hawks that nest close to my house. But it really goes deeper t... Read more
Better today! Kind-of...
Sunday, August 07, 2011      2 comments

Ok. Last night my couch-butt-glue turned out to be a fever. I did not get up and exercise but, I'm proud to say, nor did I get up and binge. I binge when sick b/c of some old deep seated belief that I can "feed a fever" to get better. Get butt-i... Read more
Taking my own advice
Saturday, August 06, 2011      5 comments

I need to take my own advice today. I'm constantly telling a friend that on days when she's wiped out, derailed, or otherwise struggling with getting her workout done, to just promise herself 1 minute, or 5 minutes, whatever her minimum is. And ... Read more
Busy Week
Friday, August 05, 2011      3 comments

This week has been exhausting, but well worth it. My son (has ASD), who has an incredible affinity for music, perfect pitch, and some amazing musical skills, had music camp every day. This meant a lot more stress for me, though. It meant -... Read more
Power not Perfection
Sunday, July 31, 2011      3 comments

I am at a stage of my life where I don't believe in perfection anymore. My autistic son has taught me that you don't have to be perfect to be awesome. And to be awesome, I have decided that I will celebrate power. I realized earlier this month, ... Read more
Chunking the day.
Friday, July 29, 2011      2 comments

I am having a migraine - on day 3, and it's rough today. It's definitely a binge trigger. So today I'm employing several tactics to try and avoid the binge. Its my first migraine since becoming binge free so it's going to be a hard day. That's m... Read more
Jane Jetson
Thursday, July 28, 2011      0 comments

I want the hair thing Jane Jetson has - where she just stands there, a bubble goes on her head and boing, her hair is done. Same for her kitchen - clean in the push of a button. Closet - same deal. I think I may want to BE Jane Jetson... ... Read more
First goal streak realized
Wednesday, July 27, 2011      0 comments

Yow, I joined a team discussion to make it 21 days binge free - at the time of joining I remember feeling, "hah, as if." And as of today, last night really, I have completed it. I can gush here about all the support I've gotten, but I did that a... Read more
Inspired by Day 1 people
Tuesday, July 26, 2011      2 comments

I just have to say that I have really been blown away by how strong and positive people are on day 1. I know they are _feeling_ defeated, but I see so much strength in someone who can fall off, and get right back up. I'm a wallower. I tend to wa... Read more
Gym woes and fixes
Monday, July 25, 2011      5 comments

My son is autistic. The gym is not 100% flexible. They play a TV show in the kids klub (innocent enough) that freaks him out so I can't take him there anymore b/c he has panic attacks. This was part of my problematic life these past few days. ... Read more
Rough few days
Sunday, July 24, 2011      1 comments

These last few days have been rough. I've been immersing myself in Sparkpeople a lot and reading blogs, sometimes commenting sometimes not, but I like having somewhere to go to bouy myself up when things feel like they're raining down around me.... Read more
Beautiful Women
Thursday, July 21, 2011      1 comments

I've been thinking about something lately. I concluded it a long time ago, but since joining this site and reading what other women say, I've been thinking about it again. Here it is: I rarely see any woman and think "ick, what an uggo." In fact... Read more
