So, I hit a wall. (Don’t worry. It was a metaphorical wall.) I decided last night to go ahead and not expect myself to use the treadmill on both Sunday and Wednesday evenings. That way, I can use those times to take twice-weekly showers, and I’ll still be burning 300 calories 12 times a week,Continue reading “When the going gets tough…”
I have great news! Well, okay, it’s not like winning-the-lottery great, but it’s pretty great! It’s mid-January, and I haven’t felt remotely triggered by the physical abuse I suffered. It occurred to me that the EMDR I did last summer must’ve helped! Wow. FINALLY!!!! I always get triggered in winter. (Don’t I?) (Yeah, I thinkContinue reading “Falling asleep now!”

The whole theme of the memoir is physical abuse and triggersContinue reading “Ready to take off here!”

I’ve got great anecdotes from that time, but they reallyContinue reading “Poor Aunt Linda!”
What could be more meaningful than spreading my message? Absolutely nothing!
So, my iffing (intermittent fasting) hasn’t gone well. Over the past few days, I’ve been stressed, and I’ve broken the fast in the evening to eat one item of junk food. Yesterday, it was a few bites of cookies. The day before, it was some sort of individually wrapped cake that someone gave my dad.Continue reading “Quick! Don’t think about food.”
