NSV: going from envy to pride

So the office administrator at my work is also part of the committee for the gym I attend (it's a community gym, open 24/7 without staff, and it's managed by volunteers, so it's also very cheap, which I appreciate). She's a real gym rat and love... Read more
Lean Habit 4 - eat mostly whole foods

So yesterday was a super busy evening and I ended up NOT READING CHAPTER FOUR. AGAIN. Lol! I got home, cooked supper, was on the phone with a friend for a while, then I spent an hour helping the Arts Council with the photo contest, washed my hai... Read more
Am I progressing?

A couple weeks ago when I was going a bit crazy on the new dating thing, I almost quit eating. Not because I wanted to lose weight. I just... forgot about it. I never felt hungry for starters, and after a couple bites I already fell full. W... Read more

Long story short, I'm back on the dating market. My goal is still to be single for a while. I'm aiming for at least 6 months (since my breakup, so a little under 5 months now, which will take my to March). I'm meeting tons of GREAT people... Read more
I did it - 1500 minutes again!

I like me some SparkPeople trophies. Some of them don't do much for me - SparkPoints, for example, since it feels so easy to get a lot of them now (I got almost 2000 in September only, and I'm not particularly active); but the fitness minutes on... Read more

On a totally unrelated starting note, there's this weird ad on SP right now for "Fit 4 Less" and I see two of them right now. One of them has a guy in it - he's looking rather ridiculous in his 80's-inspired gym clothes, knee-high socks matching... Read more
Your thoughts on trigger foods?

Yesterday I had like a thousand pieces of candy in the afternoon. UGH. Okay, not a thousand, but at least ten, and probably more like fifteen. Last weekend I went grocery shopping in Yorkton and sometimes I'll buy $5 worth of candy to fill ... Read more

I'm trying. I really am trying my best, and I think I've been doing great in the last few days. Last week started out rough food-wise. After giving in to a bag of chips (half of it Saturday, the other half Sunday), and then giving in again ... Read more
Binging now vs binging before

Yesterday wasn't my most glorious day food-wise, far from it. Yet I can't help but compare this "disastrous" day to the kind of behavior I had 3-4 years ago, when I could easily go through there quarters of a box of Oreo cookies in one sitting... Read more
How to deal with a new life

It's a little crazy to think that a week ago, I had no idea where I was going or what I was going to do with my life. I'd left my boyfriend two days before, and it was Labor Day, so I was just home, thinking, trying to just let time pass until I... Read more

So tomorrow will mark a week of being single again, a week into my one-year-celibate wish (I will stop counting after that. LOL!) and also the last day I spend hauling stuff out of the farmhouse I was sharing with my ex and into my tiny cozy apa... Read more
Well, I'm single, again.

I'll make this short as I know it's pretty personal and of no big interest to anyone on SP... But last weekend my (ex)boyfriend and I broke up. Well, I broke up with him. That was Saturday. Ensued two days of uncertainties, crying and stres... Read more

Reading my friend ALP1976's blog, "Subtle Changes" had me reflect on my own journey. For over two years now I've maintained my weight. It did go up a little at the beginning of 2013 because of dealing with emotional stuff and getting in a n... Read more
Brace yourself - FALL is coming
Saturday, August 29, 2015      3 comments

This time of the year has always been bittersweet for me. I have no idea why - nothing "traumatic" ever happened to me (outside of having to go back to school...) so I don't know. But for as long as I can remember I've always become a little dep... Read more
Whiney morning lol!
Thursday, August 27, 2015      2 comments

So I usually log into SparkPeople 2-3 times a day. I used to do it every morning but when I started going to the gym that pretty much stopped. On non-gym days I try to avoid using the computer too much in the morning since I'm staring at a scree... Read more
