Week 9: For real this time

With the hope of dealing with my headaches on the horizon, I was able to focus again on the other aspects of my health. Which I did, rather successfully, if I do say so myself. I had a good blend of meal plan recipes and other non-diet food, but I still did pretty well overall […]

Week 4: Hello, motivation

After a rocky Week 3, I made it up to myself and found my motivation again. And it paid off. I lost about 7.5lbs. I know that’s a lot for one week, but that’s not entirely abnormal for the beginning of a weight loss journey. So yay me!

What’s the secret to travelling with an 18-month-old?

Well, we don’t exactly “travel” in the long-distance sense, so I can’t really help you there. But to get from point A to point B around town, I have to say I’m probably really lucky to just have some seriously easy-going kids. It doesn’t really matter what time of day it is, I have getting […]

How do you feel about your body?

I’ve never had a particularly healthy relationship with my body, I suppose. I was always the fat kid growing up and I don’t think I’ve ever really shed that view of myself. I try to eat well, though that is tougher than almost anything else in my life. I’m somewhat active and I at least […]

Halloween plans? What’s your costume?

Well, considering Dan works nights, I’ll be flying solo. That means I basically won’t be doing anything. I am going to dress my dog up as a shark and take him for a walk. That’s about it.

Are you able to tell when you have enough?

That’s an interesting question. I guess the answer really depends on the context. Growing up in a materialistic society, most often it seems like too much is never enough. But I tend to disagree with that. I guess I know when I have enough of some material items.¬†Enough clothes, enough jewelry, enough food, etc. But […]
