Apologies for the gap in blogs!
We've been working on vacation prep. so I haven't given much thought to anything else. Lunch with my dad& his new fiancée went well. I think I won't have any problem getting along with her. It's not a huge deal either way since I don't see th... Read more
Things around my house are getting a little exciting. Like, in the drama way. Not drama directly attached to me, but you know how it goes if you have a family member that drama seems attracted to.
My brother's EX is pestering him more. I... Read more
Ooops, some weeks went by!
Man, I fell off the blog wagon pretty fast. Here's what's up with me:
Vacation Challenge: FAILING MISERABLY
Since my slipup in the 1st week, I've been much much more vigilant about saying no to cocktails, alcohol, etc. So that's been... Read more
I've been at it for years, but I still learn new stuff about myself all the time. I never really identified myself as an emotional eater, but I just figured I MUST be an emotional eater. I mean, that has to be why I have random binges, right??... Read more
So, what's next?
I'm still plugging along. Things are going ok. I've really been feeling a lot better this week than I have in a really long time. I hope it holds. Since my convention is over and I don't have any others planned until October, I am trying to ... Read more
Again, I'll edit this later with pics, since they are all on my phone and I really prefer to type on a regular keyboard when I'm doing this.
For the duration of the convention.. I did not eat much. Cons are great for staying busy, and I do... Read more
I've been doing well with keeping to an exercise schedule. Things are not perfect, but I'm feeling like a schedule is helping out. Last Sat, we had to go down to meet a friend hallway between us& Austin so that I could pick up my sword. I don... Read more
And it's not from exercise! It's from ventilating a wig. Ugh!
Sometimes I think I am crazy. I knew the results would be good, but I knew it would take a lot of time, too. It's taken maybe 15 hours of work... WTF
Anyway, quick upda... Read more
Another update. Ups& downs, but I'm hanging in there
Things haven't been easy this week, but I am doing ok. I haven't left the house much in the past week because I've felt like death. But hey, guess what?? I don't leave the house much anyway, so it was only a small decrease in my usual leaving... Read more
Update on my goals& progress
I've been sticking to things! I haven't brought any junk food in with me when I go out to the store. It hasn't been easy because I am (of course) craving sweets ALL THE TIME. But, I've somehow managed to avoid them through my own stubbornness... Read more
Vacation in a few months. What will my photos say?
I've found that keeping myself busy with costumes helps with my depression. As long as I'm working on something and feeling productive, it isn't so bad. I haven't any time sitting alone and crying miserably lately, at any rate.
I have pre... Read more
Lately, I've been feeling almost like a normal person. I haven't been leaving the house much, but I've been getting out way more than I was. I'm taking semi-regular showers and getting back on top of basic things like oral hygine. I know this... Read more
A bad year for Pomato!
So things didn't go that well for me this year. It happens. I'm trying to focus on turning it around, though. I spent the entire year struggling and putting on weight. I had surgery, which didn't help, but I was never able to fully get mysel... Read more
Fighting it the best I can
I'm sorry for being absent, Spark. Things aren't particularly bad in my life, but I somehow can't seem to find any energy to be enthusiastic about anything! There are days when I know I should be working out, but I get out of bed and just star... Read more
Short, but picture-heavy!!
I have that really brutal sore throat again. You know, I didn't used to get sick after cons, but I swear I've come down with something after every one of my recent ones!!!
This will be short, since I'm posting from my phone. I'm doing it ... Read more
