Friday, July 02, 2010      14 comments

Lately I’ve been mentoring a woman who just decided to join the support group I attend. We spoke last night, as we do nearly every night, on the phone for a reluctant hour—reluctant on her part, not mine—about the less than stellar week she fee... Read more

So today marks the half-way point of the year. It’s been 182 days since last year ended, and it’s 183 days until next year begins. It seems like a good time to reflect on the progress I’ve made so far this year towards my (MANY) goals. ... Read more
Day 276: A Little out of Sorts
Tuesday, June 29, 2010      3 comments

I've been on a streak of peaceful, good days and yesterday was the first I've had in a while that felt unbalanced and lackluster. I didn't get everything done I'd set out to do and let that get me down. Later I remembered that this is why I de... Read more

Day 272: Happy, Guilt-Free
Friday, June 25, 2010      8 comments

It's funny how giving voice to something can make things suddenly begin to click! I wrote two days ago about wanting to be conscious of not allowing my guilt to hold me back from taking pleasure in my life and my time. Since then I've made som... Read more
Day 270: Sticking to Weekly Goals & Other Musings
Wednesday, June 23, 2010      6 comments

A little while ago I made the switch to composing weekly goal lists instead of daily in an effort not to get so tripped up if I had a bad day or decided I needed to change my plans in order to best take care of myself. So far this approach seem... Read more
Day 267: Weekends, Weekends, Weekends...
Sunday, June 20, 2010      6 comments

Just a quick blog, more than anything to serve as a space to just give voice to a bit of the "ugh" I'm feeling. It's the end of another long weekend, and I'm once again disappointed in the way I've structured it. Friday night was spent tired a... Read more
Day 266: The Scale's Report
Saturday, June 19, 2010      10 comments

I peeked in on the scale this morning. I've lost about 9.5 pounds this month after not seeing a loss for several weeks in a row. The body does tricky things in this process. It was a great reminder not to rely too heavily on the scale and not... Read more
Day 265: "Overweight": A Milestone
Friday, June 18, 2010      12 comments

Yesterday I realized that this month I hit a milestone and didn't realize it. Once I weighed in under 197 pounds, I crossed that marker of no longer being "obese" and instead just being "overweight." Not that I put a lot of stock in the ... Read more

Day 248: Overdone & Over it!
Tuesday, June 01, 2010      8 comments

I'm relieved to see the weekend pass. Note to self: DO NOT STRUCTURE WEEKENDS SO THAT YOU END UP FEELING THIS WAY AS OFTEN AS YOU DO. Sheesh. Sunday night we went over to a nearby friend's house to hang out. I've spoken of this relatio... Read more
