Re-Dedicating & A Goal Met
I gave myself the weekend to eat it like I stole it. I felt so full I felt ill each night when I went to bed. But today, August 1st, 2017. I'm going to re-dedicate myself to eating well and tracking everything. The evenings will be the hardest: ... Read more
I'm not here as much as I'd like. I log my food (or some of it anyway) every day, and I read blogs, but I'm not present. I forget to post my things for the Rowdy Rebels before I pass out on the couch. I don't leave inspiring comments to help you... Read more
Last weekend I spent 5 glorious days off from work and went to Virginia, both to seem my mom and spend two days hiking in Shenandoah. I went alone, and it... Read more
You Are NOT A Perfect Machine
I've been at this weight loss game a LONG TIME. I started this journey here on Sparkpeople in April 2012, more than five years ago. And I've learned a lot about the human body in that time, both from experience and self-education. I've observed ... Read more
Oh Hey, Look! It's a POSITIVE blog!
As I look back on my SparkPage the last few months, there's a lot of negativity there. Seems I only check in and blog when I'm venting or feeling overwhelmed, so today I figured I would blog about some good things from this week.
a) I got ... Read more
Another Tough Week
My counselor says I need to allow myself to realize that what I'm going through is an incredibly difficult thing, and all the feelings I've been dealing with are normal.
I had such good intentions this weekend. I wanted to get so much done... Read more
So It's Been a Minute...
Yes I'm back on the fitness track. And I'm almost back on the healthy eating track, too. I overate healthy food yesterday.
I sort of bombed the end of the Spring Challenge, apologies to my Rowdy Rebels. I plan to rejoin you at the end of t... Read more
Taking a Short Workout Break
I am going through a period of depression. This is not surprising considering all I'm going through right now. I have spent so much of the last 72 hours crying and trying to figure out my life. The good news is when I'm crying I don't eat. Today... Read more
I'm sitting here at my desk after just having spoken to my mom. This is the first time I've mentioned any problems with my husband to her. As I expected, she handled the situation in the most pragmatic way possible.
I've got so much flying... Read more
New Workout Plan
I have a tendency to take on way too many projects at once and overwhelm myself. I've been working out 6 days a week with an active Sunday for a couple of years now, so it's time to change it up for sure. I'm going to maintain the amount of calo... Read more
Therapy and Protein Powder
I love my therapist. I found a Groupon for the website BetterHelp.com that gave me 2 months of unlimited messaging counseling for $99, and I figured at that price I'd give it a shot. The first counselor I was assigned was an idiot, so I switched... Read more
A Request for Ideas
Right now I'm doing my best to keep my head above water with all the things I feel I need to get done. I'm trying to play catch up but really I'm just treading water. I'm struggling with good ideas for posts on my Wellness blog, AMeasuredLife.co... Read more

As you all know, I've started online counseling to deal with what's going on in my life and marriage. I've been in marriage counseling for more than a year, and while the little things have improved, the big things are exactly the same. I have w... Read more
Update: Emotion Edition

How I'm Feeling
The PMS is super bad this month. No tears today but I am SO DOWN. It lies to me and tells me I don't matter to anyone. My anxiety is ramped up too, and my chest feels like a big hole that can't be filled. I KNOW it's PMS. But it still sucks. The... Read more
