Denial Begets Carbs

I am way on the wagon.  So, in the month or so that I was off the wagon and being naughty, I gained a bit of weight, thankfully a lot of it was water.  In the first week back on the wagon I thankfully undid about 90% of that damaged.  Whew. I’m still working through…

Lots going on lately

The last few weeks have been quite the trip.  I went way off protocol at a time I was super frustrated with IP.  Also at the same time I spent the better part of three weeks on the road, trying to work with a therapist about being the adult child of an alcoholic and the…

Fed Up

Yesterday I went to a BBQ .  My best friend is visiting for just a week from Paraguay, so it was a great excuse to get a bunch of friends together and have a great day.  Aside from the usual fun and shenanigans, there were some noteworthy events that happened. First, when he saw me…

Ooops. Sunday Slipped Away From Me.

I only realized this morning that I forgot to blog last night.  I had coffee with a friend too late and went on a kind of crazy cleaning binge before crashing. Before I went to coffee I stopped by Whole Foods to do some grocery shopping for the week, and even the best coupon clippers…

Still in the rythm

I had another good week this week and love the feeling of the momentum.  It wasn’t easy, though. It was one of those weeks when being a girl isn’t awesome.  I spent a lot of time fantasizing about grilled cheese sandwiches, taquitos, and funfetti frosting.  Plain grilled chicken is not delicious when you want taquitos…

Back in the rythm

Last week, starting to feel like a human being again after being really stressed out, I committed to doing something nice for myself every day…the whole take care of myself first thing.  I did it, too. I did nothing major, just a few pilates classes, bubble baths, and bought my favorite shampoo & conditioner.  Little…

Getting over it all

I spent the better part of the last two weeks feeling so stressed I almost didn’t care about anything at all.  There was just too much going on to even wrap my head completely around it. So, I bit the bullet and wrapped my head around it.  I spent an entire day going through my…

So Much Stress

I never got out of pajamas today.  I have been under so much stress lately that I finally hit the wall and was so exhausted that I couldn’t even put myself together. In the last two weeks I have looked at over 25 apartments, as I have less than two weeks to find a place…

Recognizing My Triggers

I’ve spent half the last week feeling like I have an elephant (or my pre-IP self) sitting on my chest.  I am under more stress than I have been in ages and I feel like I am approaching a breaking point. Backing up, 5 years ago I lost 50 lbs when I got divorced, not…
