bopped on the head
Sunday, December 16, 2018      5 comments

My therapist really knows how to bop me on the head... She reminded me, “truth is you know what you need to do to lose weight. you know how you should be eating and you know what’s best for you.” I’ve been letting the scale tell me what’s righ... Read more
why so serious?
Sunday, December 09, 2018      5 comments

I ended my therapy appointment last week, with the thought that I take everything too seriously. Every criticism at work is a personal attack. Every argument with my husband is monumental and means we shouldn’t be married. Every pound on the sc... Read more
vanity
Saturday, December 08, 2018      1 comments

One therapy session and it’s like my mind is opening up. I’ve been having so many thoughts and feelings pour out of me. I keep thinking about my issues with vanity. I’ve always based my own feelings of my self worth based on other people’s o... Read more

Not sure why I stepped on the scale this morning, but I did. 212. But then I reminded myself, I’m stressed because of the house renovations. I’m on pain medicine for my back. I can’t walk or go to yoga yet because of my back. It’s that time o... Read more
are you happy?
Wednesday, December 05, 2018      6 comments

This question has been playing in my mind since my therapy appointment Monday evening. Are you happy? Well, no. And I think I’m constantly trying to chase something that will make me happy or give me a rush. I think I’ve been finding happi... Read more
tonight’s therapy thoughts
Monday, December 03, 2018      6 comments

A little over 6 years ago, I met a therapist who was the best person I ever spoke to. She would take what I say and word it in ways that allowed me to think about it differently. She could also bop me on the head with the truth when I needed it.... Read more
please, no
Sunday, December 02, 2018      2 comments

I hurt my sciatic again. I’m praying I caught this fast enough and started my medicine fast enough. I hope this doesn’t leave me bedridden for days. I definitely realized take for granted the days I am feeling well enough to work out! Please ... Read more
my thought this morning
Monday, November 26, 2018      3 comments

I found myself leaving the gym this morning thinking, “just a month ago I would have told someone I could never wake up at 5am to hit the gym” but guess what; I’m doing it. If I keep challenging my limits, instead of limiting my challenges, wh... Read more

mentality
Thursday, November 15, 2018      5 comments

I hopped in the scale this morning and wasn’t happy. I’m stuck at 206.2 and it’s a reminder that I started in January at 203.2 and was down to 193 and then flew off the handle until I hit 211. Man this weight loss thing is such a mental game so... Read more
are you really listening
Wednesday, November 14, 2018      4 comments

I’m trying to listen to my body. Push myself when I know I can and rest when my body is asking me too. It’s a tough balance if I’m being honest because it’s so easy to slip into bad habits disguised as physical cues to stop or rest. But I’m... Read more

My husband has a Christmas party at a beautiful hotel in the city. Cocktail dresses are preferred dress code. It is SO hard to find a dress I feel would look pretty and fit in my budget. It gets me in e negative space because I’m upset by how... Read more
trying something new
Sunday, November 04, 2018      4 comments

I am absolutely terrible at at-home workouts. My dog gets in the way, I half-do it or I just don’t do it! But if I have to go to a class to get in my workout, I actually do it. However, I’m finding that if you want something you’ve never had y... Read more

Halloween Reminder
Wednesday, October 31, 2018      1 comments

Happy Halloween! Please do not let Halloween get to you today. For some people, victory means eating candy without feeling guilt. For some, it means having the will power to stop at one piece. For others it means abstaining from all cand... Read more
