Dang it, I'm still here because I still believe in myself and that I am worth the effort. Came clean to my mom this morning about my binge eating and secret eating habits. Felt good to cry to her and to hear her say that she understands my... Read more

I'm sure I've gained weight and I feel like crap. I don't know what to do anymore. Or rather, I know what I should do/have to do... I just don't know if I have the strength to do it. Lord help me. Save me!... Read more

I've been letting the comments of people at work get to me. 2 people have commented that I've gained weight. Just because I don't look gaunt anymore doesn't mean my weight has changed (though it has because I'm gaining muscle.) I'm just 'filling... Read more

My eggplant and kangkong plants are starting to sprout! Slow and steady progress but growing nonetheless. This whole gardening thing is teaching me patience. It also reminds me to just relax and let things go... or in this case grow. Every sprou... Read more
Tickled Pink Circuit
Thursday, July 05, 2012      7 comments

Today's workout had me tickled pink! This is how you're supposed to feel after a workout - not like a sluggish Frankenstina which is how I felt last week because of overtraining. Was sore and swollen and sleepy all week last week but not today! ... Read more

I had my first green smoothie this morning... and I'm definitely hooked. Great way to start the day to end the crappy, emotional week I've just had. My green smoothie was quite basic: non fat yogurt, spinach and 2 small bananas. For the mo... Read more
