Good Morning! I wanted to check in and write about how I'm doing with keeping up with my goals. I officially started IF June 10 but as I look back over the weekend, I realize I followed the same plan the two days prior. So, today is... Read more
Goals & Something New
Monday, June 10, 2019      4 comments

I've spent a significant amount of time thinking about my current behavior with food and exercise, difficulties, and what to do in order to successfully address all this. I'm an emotional eater but I'm also pretty much done being the fat girl, ... Read more
Oversnack Attack
Thursday, June 06, 2019      7 comments

Most weeks I go through my day, have a healthy breakfast and a comparable lunch. Maybe I have a snack, maybe not. Usually I drink my water. When I get home from work is when it hits me: the Oversnack Attack! I leave work, excited to get ... Read more

I am part of a challenge that asks me to create a list of habits I want to work on and officially set goals. WHEW! Seems big, scary. So, I will take it slow: Goal 1: Fit better in my clothes and by July be able to buy a smaller size. ... Read more

Minimize, Justify, Rationalize and Catastrophize - My Battle with Food
Monday, April 29, 2019      3 comments

I've had a long term battle with food. It is downright exhausting at this point. We need food for energy and survival. I wish I could reduce my view of it to that. Food has been a way to cope, feel better, seek solace, etc. for a long time. ... Read more
Exercise takes on a whole new meaning...
Wednesday, April 24, 2019      5 comments

I didn't exercise for a few days last week for various "reasons". I say "reasons" because I know I can talk myself into or out of most things. When I minimize, justify, and/or rationalize (sometimes I use them all) I hope I can catch myself an... Read more
Thankful Tuesday
Tuesday, April 23, 2019      3 comments

I am an empath. I absorb the feelings of others like a sponge. It is not something I seek to do, it just happens. Only 12% of the world's population are empaths (from what I have read). Yesterday was a rough one. There was a great deal of c... Read more
