Well, I wasn't holding on to mojo for a couple of days, but I think it's returned today. I got up, did my UGH pilates (but yeah, I'm doing it) and went to the farmers market for grocery shopping. I love that time of the week. My DH and I go e... Read more
Mojo
Thursday, April 01, 2010      5 comments

Mojo is a strange thing. You can feel so determined one moment and completely thrown off at another time. I know that my biggest temptation areas are when I'm tired and/or sick. I also don't do as well if I've overworked my workout. ... Read more

Well, I did, indeed, hit that wall yesterday. I knew weigh in was this morning and I just didn't care, I turned to food for comfort. Now, the one positive is that even though I did this, I got full and I didn't keep going. I did make some goo... Read more
Exhaustion
Tuesday, March 30, 2010      3 comments

Well, I knew I'd hit the wall sometime. My mojo is not where it should be. I'm going to try to listen to my body today. I know it needs sleep. I know it needs less fat. While I've been within my ranges, I've been on the high end of fat inta... Read more
Fitting in other things
Monday, March 29, 2010      4 comments

Part of this journey is about letting go. Letting go of perfectionism, in particular. Yesterday I had work to do for school. I decided to do it this morning when I would be fresher. And I am, but now I feel pressured. This is all about ... Read more

Well, I got through the craziness that was last week. I did better in terms of emotional eating than I would have in the past. Was I perfect? No. Did I do better than I expected? Yes and no. Was I happy with my choices? For the most part.... Read more
Big Day
Saturday, March 27, 2010      2 comments

This has been a challenging week because I'm helping to run a big fundraiser tonight and this is SO not my thing. I'm not good with crowds, with tiny details or with patience in this sort of setting. So how do I deal with the stress? ... Read more
Maintaining
Thursday, March 25, 2010      4 comments

Maintaining energy, patterns... that's what's on my mind this morning. I've been struggling on and off with sleep. I think it's one of those menopausal things. I'm not having any trouble FALLING asleep - it's staying asleep. This morning,... Read more
Nothing but celebration!

So, I tend to have a really strange weight loss pattern. My body HOLDS my fat for weeks... literally, and then dumps it at once. Then I go up a pound or two the next week then back down the following, then hit a plateau again for a bit. So be... Read more
Hitting my head
Tuesday, March 23, 2010      5 comments

Okay... so, I had a bad night last night. Or I had a bad last 45 minutes. I was still hungry after dinner. I did a lot of exercise yesterday, I'm tired - bad combination. I had a healthy snack - good choice. I was still hung... Read more
Sleep
Monday, March 22, 2010      4 comments

Still struggling with sleep. My body simply doesn't want to adjust to daylight savings time or something. I did manage to get almost 8 hours last night, so I know I have nothing to complain about, but the clock is all skewed - I dropped at... Read more
Learning to make room
Sunday, March 21, 2010      6 comments

My thoughts today are on the fact that I have free time today. This is a struggle for me, although I love to read, love to write, love to do many things I don't usually have time for. There's something within me that seems to believe t... Read more
Challenges for the day
Saturday, March 20, 2010      6 comments

Well, today I'm in a poetry workshop all morning. It goes until 1:00 and there are pastries served. It's my favorite pastry place. Strategy: eat something with protein before grains, have 1/2 of something, have a salad for lunch. T... Read more
Things I Don't Like So Much
Friday, March 19, 2010      3 comments

More changes: 1. Anything with too much sugar/white flour 2. Eating after 8 at night. Ever. It interferes with my sleep, which I love and need. 3. Negative nabobs of negativity. I just don't have the patience for it. 4. Almost all... Read more
