The day the music died.

I did a search to make sure I’ve never given this title to a blog post before, but what do you know? I haven’t. So, yeah, the music died earlier. I was at the gym doing my morning workout on the treadmill when it happened. Thus, I was forced to watch the treadmill’s television forContinue reading “The day the music died.”

My new goals

It’s occurred to me that I’m not really an unhealthy eater (although I certainly can be), but I’m not capable of dieting enough for weight loss. So I’ve been trying to watch what I eat while exercising myself to death. After a few days of crunching numbers and seeing what’s possible, my goal is toContinue reading “My new goals”

Exposed to unhealthy eating and family photos.

Dear Amy: I recently decided to move back in with my mom and younger sister for the remainder of the pandemic. The problem is that I find myself thinking extremely unkind things about them, because both of them are overweight. I find myself thinking almost obsessively about how gross I find their bodies and feelingContinue reading “Exposed to unhealthy eating and family photos.”

Unexpected!

Wow. I just had a mindblowing experience pertaining to my weight-loss efforts. Prior to when I quit eating flour, I obtained large quantities of Kodiak waffle mix. So, ever since I went off the flour, the mixes have been sitting there in the kitchen looking forlorn in their large tupperware containers. I gave it aContinue reading “Unexpected!”

My diet’s going great!

For anyone who wants to skip the usual family drama (nothing too negative) and start at the dieting stuff, scroll down to the asterisks! So, I’ve been cleaning the house for the past several hours so it’ll be nice and clean for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I’m quite pleased with my efforts. I evenContinue reading “My diet’s going great!”

Cards and cardio.

So, I sent out some Christmas cards today. Dear Grandpa Max,  Sorry I didn’t include a note with the hardcover my mom asked me to mail you. Media mail doesn’t allow for correspondence. So I thought I’d drop you a line and see how you’re doing. I hope you have a very merry Christmas! Oh, guessContinue reading “Cards and cardio.”

Wow. Just, wow.

I’ve been spaced out and completely unfocused lately. I’m not sure why, but maybe my body’s adjusting to the dieting. I’ve stuck with the no-flour diet without relapse since whenever it was that I started it. (A few weeks ago? I have no sense of time.) It’s not hard. There are ample snack foods, butContinue reading “Wow. Just, wow.”

The cycle of shame.

For those of you who are following my diet journey, scroll down past the asterisks! 🙂 That part starts there. Everything before it is too depressing to read anyway. Oh! And, Emilia, you might want to skip this blog post. 🙂 Okay, so Charlie wrote back to me this morning thusly: Meg, We have threeContinue reading “The cycle of shame.”

Slippery like ice!

It’s the end of day four for me of not eating processed sugar or flour. It’s been going great. Today, I lost interest in eating. I normally love to eat, and I miss it, but when you remove processed sugar and flour from what I’m allowed to eat, I’m bored with it. This is hugeContinue reading “Slippery like ice!”
