The other day I added daily fiber intake to my nutrition tracker. The only problem is that it doesn't show up on the app as I add my food through the day! When I ran the daily progress report after my evening snack, my calories, carbs, fat, an... Read more
A form of dysmorphia?
Saturday, January 19, 2013      1 comments

It seems that my body image has been rather warped for quite a number of years now. I've always looked into mirrors or at pictures of myself and not recognized the overweight woman there. I just never saw myself as fat. I would even look at t... Read more

Monday was OK. I didn't do a ton but got caught up on some housework, took my morning walk, too, I think. Then the rain moved in. It has rained Biblically this week. There are lakes where normally there are golf courses and softball fiel... Read more
Lacking focus

I have so many things I want to do! And I know I have potential in all of them but I need something that will provide quick results in the form of money. My crafts still aren't selling so I guess my work is still sub-par. I've started writin... Read more

I love my mom. She's generally pretty great. We do have our issues but what two people don't? Sometimes I wish she could retire already so we could spend more time together (and because her job sucks but that's a different story) but it's rea... Read more

OK, right, I keep forgetting. Record food before consuming to ensure no surprises at the end of the meal! I got it into my thick skull today that it would be a good day to order pizza (thin crust, of course) and ate 4 slices. So I'm at just u... Read more
Finding my routine again

So this week didn't go according to my grand plan of just jumping back into routine while the kiddos were at school. Not at all! It's been raining, so no morning walks. The house was really messy so Tuesday was spent cleaning up rather than a... Read more
Bedtime yoga and toxic thoughts
Tuesday, January 08, 2013      3 comments

Every night before I go to sleep I do 20 minutes of relaxing, gentle yoga-based stretches. (Okay, I missed 2 nights over the long holiday break when I was too tired by the time I got to bed to actually stay awake an extra 20 minutes, but almost... Read more

Sunday, December 30, 2012      2 comments

I've always heard that children with autism tend to have stomach and digestion problems and that a lot of these children have a GI doctor as one of their regular specialists. Well, every once in a while my girl will randomly vomit and then with... Read more

In a way I feel so spoiled when the kids don't have school! I get a solid 8-9 hours of sleep almost every night and it feels so luxurious! On days when I have to be up by 6, I'm lucky to get a full 7 hours. It's usually closer to 6 hours and ... Read more

Tomorrow I will feel better because I ate better today. Tomorrow I will take care of some of the things I procrastinated today and then I will feel better still. I'm excited about 2013 because I intend to become financially self-sufficient... Read more

So I took the day off of counting every little carb and calorie. My mother made her traditional spaghetti for Christmas lunch (yeah, I know, whatever. I just go with it) with enriched elbow noodles and a fancied up jar of Ragu sauce. I used a ... Read more
