Day 59-Stuff
Sunday, July 07, 2013      2 comments

Weight loss for me seems to be about so much more right now than the calories and the exercise. Those are about learning, trying new things and being more consistent for me right now. A bigger piece of it seems to be dealing with my "stuff"...re... Read more

Saturday, July 06, 2013      3 comments

I live with my ex-husband "M" right now and our two kids. Yep, my life is in a weird spot. See, I'm wanting to move out of state and waiting to find a good match in an academic job, but it hasn't happened just yet (& I haven't really been trying... Read more
Day 57- Using my ANGER for fuel
Friday, July 05, 2013      3 comments

Anger. Apparently a lot of this part of the stored weight that I am now releasing is anger. Rage. Deep anger. Outrage. Injustice. Unrecognized frustration. Deep unhappiness cutting a river channel through my soul undercutting ever so slowly what... Read more

Day 52- Do you wear dresses & skirts most or all the time?
Sunday, June 30, 2013      1 comments

I got up this morning and put on a dress, but then I quickly realized that wearing a dress was going to hinder exercising on and off on my stationary bike and being active today...it was a strange realization. I mean, I clean house in a dress, r... Read more

Day 47- No progress :(
Tuesday, June 25, 2013      2 comments

It is frustrating to look at the monthly view right now and see, essentially no progress-despite continuing to do the work. Last month between the ups and downs I ended with 10 pounds down... This month so far I'm between zero and two down.... Read more

Monday, June 24, 2013      1 comments

I must have more energy, I took both kids to the beach this morning...one is sleeping and the other is quiet (which is so rare)! We did stop in at IHOP on the beach where I worked nights many years ago while going to college ... Read more
