Turning point

In my experience people tend to write about their successes most – of course they do, who wants to hear about their failures? I’ve been doing a whole lot of personal development/soul searching lately, reading a lot, and listening to motivational podcasts to and from work on my hour drive. During this time I’ve heard…

Something weird happened today…

“Something weird happened… I walked around stop and shop and had no desire to buy or eat anything that wasn’t a whole food or considered clean” This morning I had to substitute teach Body Pump at 6am for one of my friends so I had a banana on my way in (I’m really trying not…

Food journal: the beginning

I mentioned this morning that I was starting a new plan. The plan consists of eating mostly vegetables and lean protein. I’m not counting calories or macros because in my experience doing these things tends to exacerbate my binge eating disorder. So, without further ado – here’s what I’ve eaten today.  Woke up: around 7-7:30am…

Spending the day with my pups & new diet plans

Today has been a pretty standard day – woke up, walked the dogs, watered the Christmas tree 🎄, and ate breakfast. Breakfast wasn’t too standard though … I’m trying someone “new”!!   Breakfast today was 1/2 cup egg whites, 1/4 cup shaved Brussels sprouts, 2tbsp shredded taco cheese, 1/2 grapefruit, and a packet of stevia…

Getting stronger::New ink

I literally learn something new every single day that I go to crossFit. The cardio work is my least favorite but mostly because it needs the most work. I am starting to become a stronger rower, but I still find myself going out too hard to start and tapering off at the end. I do,…

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 me…

Curiosity killed the cat

i woke up this morning curious of my weight. After a few weeks exploring intuitive eating, with good and bad days throughout – successfully keeping binging down to the minimum – even stopping binges mid-binge (which is quite hard) I was curious. That curiosity left me at the scale, with a frown. 160.5. What?! How…

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”…

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!

…Enter the wonders of intuitive eating

Today is a perfect example of how intuitive eating is slowly working to my advantage.  I think that one day I will have to diet again, assuming I still want to compete, but while I am learning to have a healthy relationship with food, that whole idea of dieting is kind of being thrown out…
