I've gained another pound this week. To be honest, I was half expecting it because of the way I ate during the week. For some reason I've been craving roasted peanuts and have been eating too much of them. Especially when I felt hungry, ... Read more
Weigh-in blues
Sunday, December 14, 2014      5 comments

Today is weigh-in Sunday. Weighed myself this morning and saw that I've gained 2 pounds. It can be quite upsetting. Right now I'm not really in the mood to analyse what went wrong - maybe it was too many skipped meals, too few workouts ... Read more

Last week was so hectic, I'm still trying to catch my breath. This won't be a long post today, feeling too tired to put my thoughts together properly. Only, I made a commitment to myself to put up a blog post at least once a week, just to help... Read more
What a week!
Saturday, November 29, 2014      2 comments

This past week has been quite challenging nutrition-wise. I did a lot of binge eating of high carb and high calorie foods. Yes, it even included... cake (gasp!), with icing no less. As a result of all the empty carbs I was consuming, my blood s... Read more
Decisions... Decisions!!
Sunday, July 22, 2012      3 comments

These days, it seems like it gets harder and harder for me to make a decision. I take days procrastinating, nervously jumping from one possible outcome to another, afraid of making the wrong choice. I feel nervous and sick to my stomach when req... Read more
Does anyone here use vitamin supplements?
Wednesday, April 07, 2010      4 comments

I was on the phone with my sis the other day, and during our conversation the issue of vitamin supplements came up. I had complained about how tired I was feeling and she asked me if I was taking any. When I replied in the negative she suggested... Read more

What is your pattern for quitting? Everyone has one! Sometimes i push myself so hard until I begin to see results. Caught up in the euphoria of making a little progress I start to slack off, telling myself that 'this little thing won't hurt... Read more

I changed my ticker today to show my start weight, current weight and goal weight, instead of showing pounds lost. I used to be so ashamed of my weight that I didn't want it to show in my ticker. Although my goal is quite a long way off, I'm oka... Read more

When it comes to emotional eating, my most vulnerable time of the day is in the evenings on my way home from work. I'm usually tired, hungry and, when I feel unsatisfied about my workday, a little depressed. On Wednesday I was feeling all o... Read more

Wednesday, January 27, 2010      4 comments

...how on earth do people get up to 10k steps a day, and more? I usually park far away from my office, I try to use the stairs (occasionally, it's true), and there are days when it feels like I moved up, down, and everywhere in between. Yet, eve... Read more

“Fall Seven Times, Get Up Eight”
Friday, January 15, 2010      4 comments

In Japanese this is called 'Tamashii', or indomitable spirit (so I've learned from Google). Where I'm from, people would refer to such behaviour as being as stubborn as a goat. Less flattering description, true, but goats are hardy creatur... Read more

Wednesday, June 10, 2009      1 comments

Reading thru my previous blog, the thought running though my head was: great advice…if only I’d kept following it! I didn’t, and so I find myself again at ground zero. There are so many reasons (excuses) that I could give… no time, too much... Read more
