Lots of waiting....
Tuesday, February 07, 2012      1 comments

I am waiting on a few big things to happen, and I have been doing alot of escaping by overeating. This translated into gaining 2 lbs last week, and I am trying very hard to accept that this is just a blip, nothing major. 1. Waiting on co... Read more

Wow...this journey definitely has it's peaks and valleys! I am climbing out of a pretty dark valley that is challenging me on about every level. How have I reacted? Emotional eating and buying into the whole "helpless victim" role. I guess I... Read more

Sooo...glad to report that I am a little less emotional...thank goodness! I am starting to come around, and I have been quite gentle with myself...so much so that I have gained 2 lbs in the last two weeks! Soooo....a little less gentle,... Read more
Emotions....urghhh....quite a ramble.

My dad and I have a rocky relationship - at best. This year has not been "at best". He is a highly critical and judgmental man who has no idea how to show his emotions. I am a highly emotional person who takes constant criticism and judgement... Read more

Well, there isn't much to say other than I gave up. I stopped exercising and have been making terrible food choices and worst of all, making excuses and justifying my behaviour. It all boils down to giving up on me...again. I feel sheepish ... Read more

Well, it has been 8 weeks since my second mother passed away. As I am her executor, and she had no internet, I have been insanely busy and without internet access. I am finally settled, more or less, back at my home again. Still very busy, bu... Read more

It has been the better part of two weeks since I have tracked my food, been consistent with exercise or put any real focus on my health. There are lots of factors, a new job that has a steep (but fun) learning curve and a family member who has ... Read more

The sun is shinning, the roads are dry and the temperature is hovering around zero! Despite the fact that I can't breathe (headcold turning into a chestcold), I laced up my shoes, bundled up and threw on some sunglasses and started out on my 2k... Read more

Well, I just finished week 12 and fell short of some pretty high goals, but I did not give up, therefore I have not failed. I wanted to lose 11 lbs/month, and instead I have lost 24 lbs in 3 months. That is fantastic, it's more than I have eve... Read more

Saturday, March 05, 2011      3 comments

Well, I gained 2 lbs this week, and I am suprisingly calm about it all. I ate too much, did less execise than I should have and was not feeling organized or on top of things at all this week. In fact, in the last two weeks I have felt like I a... Read more

Well, this week has been pretty good...in fact...awesome in alot of cases. My aunt is completely free of infection, awake and just regaining strength in hospital...but completely out of the woods. That is nothing short of a miracle, she may ha... Read more

A quick update, the doctors are going to try and bring my aunt out of her coma this weekend. She is not out of the woods, but even the MD's are cautiously optomistic for recover at this point. I really want to thank everyone for their prayers... Read more
Could use your prayers!

On Monday I received a phone call that my aunt went into the hospital because she was feeling really "lousy", within two hours she couldn't speak and within 3 hours she started to develop systematic organ failure. They put her into a drug induc... Read more
