It's almost 1 p.m. At 3:15 today, I'm meeting a couple of my students on campus and we are going to walk "just a few blocks" to a women's shelter, where we are giving a little talk about the importance of mammograms and Pap smears. I am ... Read more

Tuesday, May 04, 2010      4 comments

I got Husband a Wii for his 51st birthday. I okayed it with him beforehand, because he really didn't strike me as someone who would be interested, but I thought it would be something our kids would enjoy, too. Yesterday was the big day a... Read more

Day 16: Post-Binge Guilt (PBG)
Saturday, May 01, 2010      4 comments

I suffer from PBG. Yesterday, for no reason whatsoever, I consumed 5900 calories, 500+ carbs and 250 g fat. I had a fantastic day yesterday. No reason for a binge that I can identify. I made the conscious choice to eat each of those ... Read more

To celebrate Husband's homecoming last night, we went to Chili's and I had my favorite meal there, Chicken Crispers. And I had some tortillas with salsa. I did not have my normal alcoholic drink or dessert. I chose water to accompany my meal... Read more

Today I sent my Son, age 5, to my wonderful mother-in-law's house so I could have a break. After almost two weeks of single parenting while my husband frolicks in Europe (a business trip, but whatever, it feels to me any reason to go to Europe ... Read more
Day 8: Forgiving Myself
Friday, April 23, 2010      6 comments

Today I had a somewhat stressful day at clinic. The patient scheduled just before lunch, scheduled for 20 minutes, took an hour and a half, then announced that I was (his or her) new doctor. So glad I passed the test. Meanwhile, I misse... Read more

Thursday, April 22, 2010      4 comments

Yesterday, despite not having planned any meals in advance, I did OK with food. I'm spending a lot of time everyday thinking about personal health promotion, which sure beats ignoring it as I have done for the past year (and intermittentl... Read more

Wednesday, April 21, 2010      4 comments

As I logged my dinner from yesterday, in accordance with my promise to record everything I put in my mouth, I made an important realization. When my kids are screaming because they are tired after a long day, I don't adhere to my pre-set pl... Read more
Day 4: FAIL/WIN combo!
Tuesday, April 20, 2010      3 comments

My goal for the beginning of this journey is to record everything I eat in the SP food thingy. I'm not necessarily trying to diet. Yesterday I altered my starting weight to my all-time highest (343), which probably is not my all-time hig... Read more
Day 3: Good so far!
Sunday, April 18, 2010      1 comments

Taught the adult Sunday School class this morning and it went very well. Went to Outback Steakhouse afterward for lunch, but used my iPhone to look up nutrition information. I realize that I eat "blindly" so often, enjoying the taste of the fo... Read more
