Because I Know You'll Understand
Monday, July 25, 2011      3 comments

Today is my last day in the U.S., visiting my parents. It was much less stressful this time because I came with my husband. But there was one MAJOR stressor. I like to do clothes shopping here because it's more convenient and cheaper than bac... Read more
Why I'm Trying Gluten-Free
Friday, January 14, 2011      4 comments

A few months ago, my blood test had some scary (to me) results. A few indicators were way out of the "normal" range. One of them was for CPK, which indicates muscle tissue damage and inflammation. Well, I worked out really hard the night befo... Read more
How do you do it?
Tuesday, January 04, 2011      4 comments

I don't understand how all you active women subsist on 1500 cals /day. Seriously! I ate totally clean today except for the granola bar, and I was hungry most of the day. It's now 9:30pm and I was going to do the SP bootcamp workout, but I'm... Read more
Dessert After Meals
Wednesday, December 29, 2010      1 comments

Why do I sometimes get intense cravings for something sweet after a meal? Today I met a friend for lunch at her house. I brought over quinoa and a bean salad, and she made tofu with sauteed mushrooms. The bean salad included some avocado ... Read more
Wake Up Call
Saturday, December 25, 2010      4 comments

Well, I decided today to stop feeling bad or sorry for myself for feeling unmotivated to work out, and knowing that reading diet blogs or staying in bed won't help me get back in shape, I decided that I was in a good enough mood and had enough e... Read more
Weight Question
Wednesday, December 22, 2010      3 comments

Well, I got majorly waylaid last week with something like the flu. I had ZERO appetite (imagine that!) for several days. While I am feeling all better, I am just tired. I always want to sleep. I don't feel depressed. Just tired, in a w... Read more
I love breakfast!
Sunday, December 12, 2010      0 comments

Yes, I really do. Especially since I discovered Eggs n' Oats (thanks Rachel_Mac!!!) One of the great things about living in Israel is that oh-so-healthy, antioxidant and fiber-rich pomegrantes are plentiful and cheap! I was halfway th... Read more

Well, last night I went to the mall. I was feeling so good - I got wedding shoes (Crocs!) I figured I would just get dinner there. One of the things I discussed with my therapist was "planned unplanning" which I really, really tried. I t... Read more
How it Happened
Wednesday, October 27, 2010      5 comments

I got an awesome prize for all the hard work I've been doing. No, it's not a smaller number on the scale. I have the most amazing fiancee! As some of you know, I took a break from SparkPeople to get my emotional life back in order, focusi... Read more
Rediscovering my Willpower
Wednesday, September 22, 2010      2 comments

Last evening I worked out and then ate a balanced dinner, munched on a few cherries and nuts for dessert, and then that was it! There was a miscommunciation with a friend I met up with later. I found something to do besides go out to eat, but... Read more
Yom Kippur
Sunday, September 19, 2010      3 comments

A 26-hour fast and devotion to prayer on Yom Kippur. This was my fresh start on reconnecting with purpose and commitment. I was tempted to track my food today, but as I wrote in my previous blog post, I'm taking a break. I know what to ea... Read more
Stopping Tracking?
Tuesday, September 14, 2010      3 comments

My, the tracker is a useful tool, but accountability doesn't seem to stop me from binging. Through a lot of work today, I've committed, one day at a time, to eliminating gluten from my diet. I haven't yet figured out how I'll be able to deal w... Read more
Back and a Little Battle Weary
Sunday, September 12, 2010      3 comments

I'm a combination of frustrated and trying to cut myself some slack, as usual. The cards were stacked against me. It's been 3 days of no computer, no phone, no writing, no showering, hours of prayers and then sitting around at a table with peo... Read more
Turning Things Around
Tuesday, September 07, 2010      2 comments

It's about time, right? On Sunday night I went to my yoga class. It's soooo important for me to go, except for extenuating circumstances, like last week I had a wedding to go to. I had my yoga mat with me all day long - brought it to the... Read more
Back From a Break (Very Long)
Sunday, August 29, 2010      5 comments

I needed to take a break from Spark People. First of all, my bingeing got out of control because I was tired and lonely. I finally admitted that to myself, and since going to 3 OA meetings, I am soundly on the path to recovery. I feel lik... Read more
