Wednesday, November 28, 2012      5 comments

My last few blogs have been kind of depressing. I am so happy to have had a change of attitude! I have had an epiphany I wish to share with you. I am an adult. I know I can control myself; sometimes I choose not to. I know certain choices put my... Read more

Well, I did not do very well at all this Thanksgiving. I overate by hundreds of calories. I was asked to make the pies, and we brought home lots of leftovers, which I haven't been able to resist. I still feel sick today! I don't understand why t... Read more

I love goals. I love setting and accomplishing the mini goals that contribute to the big goal. I am lagging in motivation a little, so I thought, "Why not throw it out into the Sparkpeople universe?" This way, I know people will read it, and I w... Read more

Overeating. Binge eating. Destructive eating. What a bummer of a condition. Why do I do it? I used to think my eating was normal; since I was training for a 5 miler, my weight didn't go up. I don't know what started my bingeing. I think the trai... Read more

I love the holidays. Society seems, for a moment, to forget about themselves and focus on their friends and family, and strangers in need. This year I was a little selfish :D I focused on myself. I wanted to maintain my weight this holiday sea... Read more

I had a wonderful opportunity to support my brother today! He had his last cross country race of his high school career and it had to be rainy and cold today! He went out and got his personal best of 20:30 for a 5k! It is so awesome to see him s... Read more
