One of the things I've been doing with my girlfriend, to help her mentality, is asking her each day "How was your day? What did you like? What do you hope to do better tomorrow?" The phrasing of this question is intentional. It is geared to... Read more

Monday, January 11, 2021      1 comments

Every year, I've chosen a word to focus on for the year. In 2017, it was "Boundaries". I wanted to work on enforcing, stretching, and learning about my boundaries. In 2018, I did not choose a word, but I focused on the idea of self care. In 2019... Read more

Back where I started, but better
Tuesday, October 13, 2020      4 comments

My weight isn't where I want it to be. I'm back wearing the same size pants I wore when I was at my biggest and many of the same shirts. I can see myself intentionally choosing clothes that are too big in order to hide myself. I hate my stomach.... Read more

Gym, Stress, Bed
Wednesday, July 22, 2020      2 comments

I did get to the gym on Tuesday. Having that specific time and expectation really got me out the door. I'm really sore today from it! Food prep has kept me straight. When I get home and I no longer have that food prep to keep me straight, and ... Read more
