Wife. Mom. Daughter. Granddaughter. Voice Teacher. Aspiring pianist. Martha-Stuart-Type. Emotional Eater. Beautiful Person. I am all of these things and I'm striving to squash negative habits of the past and be the best person I can be. I've lost 50lbs before through sparkpeople, but since having a baby and trying to fit weight-loss in with my everyday life and responsibilities--I'm stuck. I don't know how long it will take me, but more important than any number on a scale, I want to love myself and feel alive. I want my food to be about nourishment and not emotions. I want to exercise because I like to feel strong, not because its a punishment for being "fat." I want to bust through the old negative tapes in my head telling me that I'm not good enough. I am enough and I will find my way.

    Thanks for the encouragement! It was actually a pretty rough day today. I went to go take the State Law Exam, feeling VERY prepared and ready to get done with it...but the entire network for the test was down, so I couldn't take it. They said this has never happened. Very disappointing, as I don't want to study at all anymore and I feel like once I take this test I can focus even more so on my health. So, now I'm taking it NEXT Saturday. Another week of studying...blah. I was proud though because in these moments I usually use the opportunity to be far I have not allowed that to happen. I really want to get on a good track and have been working hard since the 4th!
