L has gotten more mature, all of a sudden. 3 1/2 is full of reasoning and understanding and intentional tantrums. Yes! I can deal with those! He's pouting for a reaction, testing me? I get that! I can do that! I did that with his older brothe... Read more
The reasons for the things
Saturday, March 14, 2015      1 comments

When my son "L" was around age 2 we started to realize he was doing things differently. It came in a trickle, and then a flood, when he was kicked out of his daycare for pushing the kids who got in his space. He had just started there a few mo... Read more
Staying positive?
Saturday, January 25, 2014      1 comments

Having a hard time staying positive in the January cold. 55 more days to the spring solstice. Seems like a very long time just now. I think I will try to prepare for gym visits by washing workout clothes, packing gym bag, writing workouts in my ... Read more
Exercise, you are gone but not forgotten

I have kept up healthy eating habits for the most part. Not perfect, but generally balanced and healthy, only snacking after dinner a little bit. Exercise, oh where has it gone, it started with a frustration over driving in ice and snow, f... Read more

Got on scale and didn't melt, cry, or hate self

I've been so afraid of the scale because in the past it was my mean-coach, hate-fueler, always measuring how much further I had to go instead of how far I had come...I would find someone (someone else, not me, a model, an actress, a petite frien... Read more

Instead of pizza, ice cream, peanut butter out of the jar...I am eating differently and the further I go, the weirder (grosser) my old favorite foods start to taste and even sound to me. I enjoy my individual dark chocolate sea salt caramels inf... Read more
Pizza, no problem
Saturday, January 12, 2013      4 comments

I ate 2 1/2 pieces of pizza last night. This is a good thing. It was family "pizza party" night. I stopped when there was plenty of pizza left. I had a sip of rootbeer, for the bubbly taste, then passed to husband. I am sure it helped that I exe... Read more

One thing at a time
Tuesday, January 08, 2013      1 comments

So I was feeling surprised and dismayed by how quickly I ended up in the middle of yucky body issues I thought were in the past. I thought I had grown way beyond that nonsense. I was wrong. After I joined spark people and began a food journal, n... Read more
Veered quickly down the body image path, numbers, measures, envy, yuck!

I started this project to brighten my spirit, or maybe uncover the layers of junk that collect on top of it, psychologically. I wanted to remind my self how good I can feel and how much I can accomplish. I wanted to feel better, brighter, calme... Read more
I'll do it when everything is calm and perfect (HAH!)
Sunday, December 30, 2012      2 comments

I realized yesterday I am still waiting for a lot of things to line up perfectly and go how I want BEFORE I make changes in my life. I don't think this is helpful... In the past I "got healthy" during intense periods of self-focus when I didnt h... Read more
