Can we just talk about the energy I’ve had today? Holy cow! This morning I woke up at 6am and didn’t even reset the alarm!!

Today has been a good day yet again! I promised I’d be transparent so.. Here we go.. Don’t yell at me… I weighed myself today and… I was down 5lbs!!!

24 day Challenge: Day 1

In an effort to be completely transparent with both my readers and my challengers – I decided that I would put my entire challenge experience out there. I thought this would be great for other people because they can see that they aren’t alone, and it would be great for me – to keep myselfContinue reading “24 day Challenge: Day 1”

Help Me! Help Yourself!

Today I asked for help. I have a long laundry list of past attempts to get help that have gone terribly wrong but today I actually feel good about it. While perusing the Intuitive Eating (IE) website over the weekend I found a page that allowed you to find a nutritionist in your area andContinue reading “Help Me! Help Yourself!”

If you don’t love it, don’t do it!

Yesterday I posted about my experience with the scale. I talked about how I didn’t let it throw me completely off, but how I was bothered by the number that looked back at me. Looking back on yesterday I realize that I actually handled that experience in a much more constructive way! The old meContinue reading “If you don’t love it, don’t do it!”

That curiosity left me at the scale, with a frown. 160.5. What?! HowContinue reading “Curiosity killed the cat”

Free your mind :: and the rest will follow 😉

Today was a pretty good day. I woke up for cardio, and I have to say – that part of the day wasn’t as great but somewhere after that it really all turned around. If you’ve been following my blog you know it’s kind of been more about the “push-ups” portion rather than the “pugs”Continue reading “Free your mind :: and the rest will follow 😉”

Enjoy your food…

The thing about this exploration of Intuitive eating, for me at least – is these little steps, these little inner thoughts that have me thinking about what I choose in a completely different way, has been one huge learning experience and it’s just beginning!

The definition of insanity….

Today I experienced an encounter that would previously cause me to binge. The stress from the day would usually lead me to searching for something to soothe the negative feelings. You see, when I feel attacked, or like someone is cornering me, I get defensive and i internalize those feelings. When I do this IContinue reading “The definition of insanity….”

How does she eat THAT and stay so lean?

The great debate. Have you ever met someone who seems to “eat all the time” but stays at a healthy weight? Have you thought “oh they must have a fast metabolism.” While you reach for the next big diet craze because, well, your metabolism must be slow. What if I challenged you to think differently?Continue reading “How does she eat THAT and stay so lean?”
