I feel the anxiety of the Holidays, however am establishing some habits that are turning the "Queen Mary" in my life. That would be the emotional eating I never thought would change. I have always had such an unhealthy attitude toward food. W... Read more
Turtle: Slow, but for sure
Thursday, October 24, 2013      4 comments

That's what they used to call me. ( Along with Olive OIl) It's funny how I resented both of them. I see how one can self denigrate with even something meant to be a compliment. I've been consistent with my meditation practice and being mi... Read more
A Sane Relationship with Food
Tuesday, March 26, 2013      3 comments

I like the definition of insanity as doing the same thing expecting different results. As I type this I'm experiencing another night of insomnia. It is 3:26 am and I only slept from 9pm to midnight. It seems that 3 hrs is about the amou... Read more

I am trying so hard to do what I know to do to pull myself out of this downhill spiral. It isn't working. I guess I need to try something different. I don't know what to do about the emotional healing. I am going to go to a new therapist... Read more
How Easily I Forget
Sunday, November 25, 2012      1 comments

Wow, I can't believe how long it has been. I have gotten frustrated with my computer and this site. It's probably more my computer. It's an unacceptable excuse, though. Last night I had a real meltdown and decided I need to get back to you a... Read more

It's been way too long since I've blogged. I was back to a good routine and then I got hit with a strange family situations. At the time I actually lost weight really fast because I was under such anxiety. I don't know if that has ever happen... Read more
Remember This!
Wednesday, April 04, 2012      1 comments

Some how I want to remember this hard work to get the weight back off. From about October to January I put on 15 lbs. It was simply getting away from here, not tracking my food, eating desserts (I deserve that....) & empty calories, not exerci... Read more

Moderation and Balance

I need to get this out. I'm not doing very well. I realize that I'm grieving the death of my father. I'm told there are five stages one goes through. The final stage is acceptance. I'm not there. I think it goes like this - shock, denial, ... Read more

It seems I've been really doing so many things for my health. I'm trying real hard to have balance in all of my life. I tend to get obsessed for a time and then just forget the whole thing. I'm still running 3 x's per week, doing yoga 3 x's ... Read more
