Balancing the many aspects of a healthy life
Monday, January 11, 2016      2 comments

They say 70% of weight loss is due to food and 30% to exercise. Sometimes people will play with those numbers. I have no clue where they come from or what they're based on, but I think they're somewhat true. For me personally, I think it's ... Read more
My revelation this morning: it's easier once you accept it's forever
Tuesday, January 05, 2016      6 comments

This morning I got up with my alarm at 6, put some warm clothes on and went for a walk. I talked with my boyfriend the whole time and back at home I took a shower. Then I started thinking that I should wash my hair and I'd have to do it tonight ... Read more
Party's over, back at it!
Monday, January 04, 2016      1 comments

Looking back at the last two weeks I am very, very proud of how I cruised through the holidays without putting a complete break on my good health habits, like I've always done before. Generally for me Christmas time was way too much eating for 2... Read more
The impact of a social life on weightloss
Wednesday, December 30, 2015      5 comments

Every day I log into SparkPeople and get as many points as I can, lol. This, to me, means of course spinning the wheel, tracking exercise, checking off daily goals, giving points to my teams, and, lastly, doing the trivia. I'm not that good... Read more
Lean Habit 2, and goodbye 2015
Tuesday, December 29, 2015      1 comments

My Holidays break was delightful. Last Thursday on the 24th, I worked until noon, and then I was off of work until this very morning. Truthfully I needed this time off with absolutely zero plan, no one to see, and nothing to do. It was... magica... Read more
Am I unhappy?
Monday, December 21, 2015      6 comments

Okay, the last month has been tough. And it's hard for me, even right now, to pinpoint exactly what the problem is. First of all, I'd like to start by saying how extremely grateful I am that I am NOT depressed. From age 14 to age 20 I was b... Read more
Lean Habit 1: strategies to master it
Wednesday, December 16, 2015      3 comments

So after starting Georgie Fear's Lean Habits last July, I've made many changes in my life. However, I realized (with the help of my Spark Friend ALP1976) that I probably moved on too quick with the habits. I wasn't doing BAD per se on my statist... Read more
Back from vacation report
Monday, December 14, 2015      2 comments

The week before I left (aka December 1-5) was tough. I was extremely tired at work (and OF work). I needed a break. It became easy to skip the gym and skip just about everything. I wanted to be home and not be social. I wanted to sleep all the t... Read more

So since early October I've been seeing this guy and things are great! He's from the Netherlands and he officially moved to Canada in March. He's farming with his parents down South Saskatchewan - it's a three hours drive from his place to mine.... Read more
Progress pictures - 7 months and 5 years comparisons
Wednesday, November 25, 2015      6 comments

So I finally took those progress pictures. I wanted to do it Friday night, but I got busy; then Saturday morning I forgot; I spent the weekend with a friend; and then forgot again, and got busy, and... whatever. Yesterday night I finally remembe... Read more
Lean Habits and the Art of Patience
Friday, November 20, 2015      4 comments

So yesterday I talked a bit about the Habit #4 of Lean Habits and how I was struggling with it. I got advice from ALP976 and then asked her if maybe I should reset my tracking to start anew at 0%, because right now I feel like my 60 something % ... Read more
2 pounds away from a 50 pounds loss
Thursday, November 19, 2015      8 comments

I hadn't been on the scale since my last blog post (9 days ago) and this morning I weighed in. I was down to 156.6 pounds. I started this whole thing back in 2010, in June. It's been over five years already. I clocked in at 205 pounds back ... Read more
Four pounds from my 'goal weight' and I don't care anymore.
Tuesday, November 10, 2015      5 comments

My so-called "goal weight" has changed a lot in the last years. Sometimes I wouldn't have one, or I think I didn't have one, but there was always a magical number in the back of my mind. I remember the first time I joined a gym in January of 2... Read more
Lean Habits are called habits for a reason
Monday, November 09, 2015      1 comments

So I've been talking about Lean Habits for a while now and I realized this morning that I started them 4 months ago (on July 6th to be exact). Four months already! I'm still on the first four core habits and haven't moved to the fifth one yet, b... Read more
Stress eating... big time
Monday, November 02, 2015      3 comments

The last two weeks have been somewhat stressful for me but I only realized just how much stressed I was, in the end of last week. Not only was I FIVE DAYS late on my period (with a lot of panic ensuing that tardiness), but also, getting my per... Read more
