we lost power so I ate pizza
Sunday, March 04, 2018      3 comments

We did not have power for 36 hours. I was worried all the food in our fridge and freezer would go bad while the temperature in the house dipped past the 50 degree line on our thermostat. We were told it wouldn’t come back until Monday at 11pm so... Read more

I am feeling extremely emotional. I’ve become introspective, super aware of where I am in my life, my goals and wishes alongside my fears, worries and regrets. I’m left feeling thankful where I am, motivated to reach goals and emotional from ... Read more
my dilemma
Monday, February 26, 2018      4 comments

My nutritionist told me I can eat gluten and dairy! 🎉 She also told me that because of my health issues I should give it up permanently, but understands that’s a big commitment. She said that gluten and dairy can stay in my gut and affect me ... Read more
never enough time
Sunday, February 25, 2018      10 comments

There is just never enough time in a day. I’m so busy I can’t juggle everything on my plate no matter how hard I try. People say “you make time for what’s important” and it’s so hard when everything is important. Grocery shopping, meal plannin... Read more
how to cure a bad day
Friday, February 23, 2018      12 comments

I have a fool proof method to fix a bad day. We’ve all been there. A few things go wrong, maybe we are just in a funk but for whatever reason we are having a bad day. Or maybe it’s a bad week. Or a few bad days sprinkled into a week. My thre... Read more
counted blessings
Thursday, February 22, 2018      8 comments

It’s so easy for me to get caught up in the daily grind, always pushing for more, always wanting more.. I see pictures of things I want to buy, images of places I want to vacation, things I want to do and I get wrapped up in a mindset of want wa... Read more
oh man I guess I do have goals
Tuesday, February 20, 2018      3 comments

I looked at a calendar and realized I am in the middle of week 7 working with a nutritionist and down 6.5lbs 🎉 Which led me to realize that my vacation to Arizona would put me (if I keep at a 1lb per week loss) down 17lbs and below my first w... Read more

Monday, February 19, 2018      6 comments

There’s always something to derail me; something that makes me stop actively trying to lose weight. Every single time it’s just a lame excuse. It’s taken me until now to see that. But now, I realize even more so how it’s all up to me. The only... Read more
reasons I’m proud during a particularly sucky week
Thursday, February 15, 2018      9 comments

I have always been an emotional eater. Big emotions mean I either binge, or I restrict for a while and then binge. This week has been awful. There’s always tension in my office but I try to rise above yet there is one person consistently unprof... Read more
what a backslide
Sunday, February 11, 2018      6 comments

I started working with a nutritionist in early January-the first Monday after the new year. Since then, it’s been pretty easy. But this week, I struggled with intense cravings for junk food. What was easy to say no to was now the only thing on... Read more
weekend eating
Friday, February 09, 2018      10 comments

It’s always been hardest for me to stay on track during the weekends. I could stay strict and on course during the week and then binge and restrict on weekends, consume a ton of alcohol, eat only a box of Mac and cheese all day or devour a bag o... Read more
do or do not, there is no try
Tuesday, February 06, 2018      7 comments

Yoda said it best; do or do not, there is no try. I never thought I could give up dairy, but I did it. I never thought I could give up gluten, but I did it. I never thought I could give up soda, but I did it. I stopped saying, I’m trying to ... Read more
you’re so vain
Monday, February 05, 2018      3 comments

I hate how vain I am. I hate how I focus so much on the imperfections with my skin, the dark circles under my eyes or my terrible eyebrows. I hate that I worry constantly about having bouncy hair, lips that aren’t chapped and nails that are pe... Read more
perspective
Sunday, February 04, 2018      3 comments

There is a saying, “first world problems” that is said in jest because we are all (for the most part) very blessed and after hearing it said the other day really hit home. It reminded me I complain about the silliest things. I complain about a... Read more
