The importance of reminders
Tuesday, August 25, 2015      1 comments

Last Sunday I decided I would read Georgie Fear's Lean Habits again up to where I was (Habit 3) because I needed reminders. Reminders of why I was doing this, but also HOW. Last week it felt like I just forgot how to do it, and then, forgot wh... Read more

I have this weird thing with weekends. Either I totally cruise through them without a problem and I do better in two days than in the five days spent at work before. Or, like this weekend, I just happen to forego absolutely everything I know and... Read more

I'm having a rough start to the week. But first things first. Last week's been pretty blah. I've been waking up with a sore throat and feeling somewhat gruggish for a week and I think there's a cold trying to settle in right now. I've been ... Read more

When I moved here to the middle of Canada one of the things I had to change was my behavior in social settings. Here, everybody is extremely friendly; they all waive at each other in the street or while driving, and everybody knows each other. I... Read more

When August comes around I always get the blues a little - and it gets way worse in September. This year I'm really trying to ignore it but it always feels like Summer goes by so freaking fast. But at the same time I can't really complain since ... Read more

I don't know if it's just me who's noticing it for the first time or if it's really new, but it seems I see here on SparkPeople more and more articles, videos and resources with misleading titles, like "belly blaster" or sensationalist-sounding ... Read more
Of forgiveness
Tuesday, July 14, 2015      5 comments

I think my biggest accomplishment of 2015, health-wise, is learning to forgive myself. Whenever I read about punitive behaviors or the likes here on SP, I always thought: oh, that's not me. To be honest, I always thought I was doing pretty ... Read more
