Last night was my husband's work Christmas party. He works at a Christian school, so his "work friends" are actually our good friends who we see really regularly. It was a fun chance to get together. Something very cool happened there. Someone I... Read more

My period started today. I noticed, as I've been tracking food and generally paying more attention to what I've been eating, that I have been all about the fat yesterday and today. I ate more fat yesterday and today than I have any other day in ... Read more

Weighed in today. Gained .8lbs. DH pointed out our scale sucks, so he said I should consider +.8 to really be staying the same. I guess he's right. I have to say I am not surprised, but am disappointed. Last week I was scared to weigh in be... Read more

I am doing well. Following my diet. Doing the exercise. Exercising is becoming easier, though I can tell I'm pretty out of shape by how sore I feel in the mornings. Anyway... I should be excited about my progress. Instead, I feel tired and crabb... Read more

My kids don't have much exposure to daycare settings. When DD was little, we tried a few times to leave her in the church nursery and she had a really hard time. Little Man is MUCH more attached to his mama, DD has always been independent, and h... Read more

Well, I've been MIA for awhile. It's the guilt. I haven't been focusing much on myself lately in really any aspect. I'm in a "survival mode" instead. It is just a really busy time for us right now. I haven't been careful about my diet -- some da... Read more
Reflections, week 3

Well, this is week 3 since I started making an effort to cut sugars and processed foods out of my diet. I can't say I made much effort this week. I think I actually didn't eat enough over the past 2 days. Wednesday I drove 4 hours each way with ... Read more
