The day I broke my stomach.

Yesterday was an epic dieting fail, but I’m hopeful that I can put it behind me. I’ve already started today with some healthy oatmeal, and I have a healthy dinner planned as well. But yesterday things went awry. My sleep schedule got messed up when LuLu the pup woke me up way too early. IContinue reading “The day I broke my stomach.”

A fun blog post about many things.

It’s hot. Like, really, really hot. Like Frosty-the-Snowman-just-died-in-two-seconds-and-now-I’m-traumatized-by-his-death-all-over-again hot. And humid. Did I mention humid? And it’s not even July or August yet! Send help! Things are going well. I went to the gym late last night and wound up sleeping until 1:20 PM today. I’d like to get up two or three hours earlier,Continue reading “A fun blog post about many things.”

The calm before the storm.

Hey, everyone! Here I am. My diet’s going freaktastically well! Having someone to answer to makes all the difference. But also, I realized that if I go a week without junk food, I quit wanting junk food. That’s major. It’s not something I can easily eat in moderation for two reasons: It makes me feelContinue reading “The calm before the storm.”

Pass the spinach!

So, things have been going great with my life coach, Leonie. She recommended this salad recipe, and it was divine! I even photographed it: … to preserve the moment for all time. (Then I ate it.) It was like eating fancy restaurant food. (But don’t get me started on the artificial, styrofoam strawberries. It’s onlyContinue reading “Pass the spinach!”

A harsh taskmistress.

Okay, so I’ve taken action and have commissioned my life coach, Leonie, to hold me accountable for what I eat every day. I’m paying her monthly to get multiple emails from me each day and maybe answer them once a day with either encouragement or admonitions. I’ve known I needed this for a while. IContinue reading “A harsh taskmistress.”

Updates from Meg world!

I’ve done a lot of soul-searching and have realized, both by reading my food book and talking to Ashley Leia in the comments, that I need to face my junk food addiction head on. What I need to do is wait until I have an intense craving for junk food, preferably for some I canContinue reading “Updates from Meg world!”

From Fat to Free: Chapter 1

Okay, so I’m reading a new book about weight loss called From Fat to Free: How to End Your Toxic Relationship with Food by Elizabeth Lizberg. It has journaling questions for each chapter, so I thought, what the heck, I’ll blog them. There’s a companion Action Plan Journal which is rather expensive, but it turns outContinue reading “From Fat to Free: Chapter 1”

Great news!

I have great news! Apparently my weight-loss efforts have been paying off. That, or our scales are broken. [Shrugs.] I weighed myself today and couldn’t believe it. I think I’m making progress and am on the right track. I’ve just got to keep it up. I’ve come up with a tenuous solution to my dietingContinue reading “Great news!”

Prince Albert in a can!

Guess what? I’ve created a new diet for myself. I’m calling it the canned foods diet. I guess it’s rather self-explanatory. I’m not wanting to only eat canned foods. Technically, I don’t care what I eat if it’s healthy. But I’ve realized that canned foods are affordable, healthy (I’m trying to get BPA-free cans), andContinue reading “Prince Albert in a can!”

Be still my heart! No, really, slow down!

So I finally broke down and sought out medical care today when I took my resting heartbeat once again, and it was 100. Same old, same old. I figured that can’t be healthy. I haven’t been able to do my treadmill routine ever since I was vaccinated twelve days ago, and nothing has improved. IContinue reading “Be still my heart! No, really, slow down!”
