Goal for the Emerald Isle
Saturday, September 28, 2019      5 comments

This morning my sister and I booked a month-long trip to Ireland for June, and couldn't be more excited! This is going to be so much fun. We have Irish ancestry, and it's long been a dream of mine to see the Emerald Isle. Plane travel isn't... Read more
Meeting a goal and setting a new one
Sunday, September 01, 2019      4 comments

I have done so many 5% challenges, I've lost count. This was probably somewhere around my 10th try. Every single time, I've either gained weight while on the challenge, or only lost a few pounds. Never once did I come close to meeting my 5% goal... Read more
Two week plan of attack
Sunday, August 18, 2019      6 comments

I figured out my plan of attack to start moving slowly back in the right direction. Here are my steps: 1) Meal plan for the next two weeks (SBD phase 1 always is a good kick-start for me). 2) Go to the store and buy ingredients for a week... Read more
Time to face the music
Saturday, August 17, 2019      1 comments

The last few weeks I have allowed myself to get way off track. I've always been an emotional eater, but lately I've been reminded how much of a problem it is. Circumstances in life have been a bit rough. The main problem has been trying to deal ... Read more

Why I don't track
Thursday, July 18, 2019      9 comments

For the 5% Challenge, one of this week's Living the Good Life challenges has been to track your food. Normally, I like to follow all the challenges, and enjoy being able to track that I accomplished that each day. Not for this one, however.... Read more
Self-care
Tuesday, July 09, 2019      8 comments

I'm not sure why, but people with my personality type tend to be really good at caring for other people while being really bad at taking care of themselves. I am Exhibit A. For years, for whatever reason, I stubbornly refused to care for myself.... Read more
Summer goals
Friday, July 05, 2019      8 comments

Another 5% challenge is almost here! I'm super excited to power through this journey with my Warrior teammates. And I am bound and determined that this will be my personal best challenge yet. I'm going to meet that 5% goal...for once! :D He... Read more
Random food sensitivities
Friday, June 07, 2019      5 comments

My blood tests came back with foods I'm allergic to and foods I'm sensitive to. Thankfully, I have no allergies. Yay! Unfortunately, I have a few sensitivities, and some of them are just weird. For instance, my sensitivities to casein, cow's mil... Read more
When life gives you lemons
Wednesday, May 29, 2019      4 comments

Doctor visits can be something else, can't they? I am not the type to go to the doctor for aches and pains, even though I should. Arm and hand have tingling and numbness? Eh, probably should get that checked...at some point. (Yes, that was my ac... Read more
Let's be real
Saturday, April 27, 2019      6 comments

(Warning: vent blog ahead. Proceed with caution...) I want to give up. I am so tired of trying and failing, and trying and failing, and trying and failing. The narrative always seems to be the same. I experience some success, some... Read more
31 goals for 31
Monday, April 22, 2019      5 comments

Birthdays are a good time to pause and reflect on the previous year and on the year ahead. Since I'm 31 today, I thought it would be appropriate to come up with a list of 31 goals for the next year. I want to make it a year of self-care, of maki... Read more
Telling perfectionism to take a hike
Friday, April 12, 2019      5 comments

I have not made the best choices in the past couple weeks. My eating has been sketchy at best, binge-y at worst. My exercise has not been as consistent as I would like. Part of that is based on the fact that my computer suddenly decided it wasn'... Read more
