I hope everyone had a great labor day weekend! Vacation was great. We had beautiful, sunny, beach weather, the kids had a blast looking for shells and going in the ocean (when the lifeguards said it wasn’t too rough) and it was relaxing. I was truly unplugged, not tied to my laptop and it was […]

This past Saturday marked 11 weeks of intuitive eating and I’m pretty happy about that. However, there is a bit of a wrench thrown in there with the triathlon training… as often happens when you workout a lot/differently, you sometimes lose your appetite. Now if I was following the rules of IE, I would only […]

I have been enjoying my break for the past week. I am enjoying time with myself and my family as I try to sort through some things, but I definitely wanted to check in with you. Saturday will make seven weeks of no weighing/measuring of food or counting calories, though I do admit to still […]

I’m borrowing this idea from Holly (thanks, girl!) who posted these questions the other day. I thought it might be fun to post. 1) What physical features do you love about yourself? I think I have nice arms and shoulders. I’m lucky that I don’t carry weight there, so from working out, my arms look […]

Our family went out to dinner on last night. When I go out to dinner with my husband, friends or family, I always order a salad, which I wrote about my reasoning behind why I do that here. Well, since I ate a salad for lunch yesterday, I decided to take, what probably seems ridiculous […]

Intuitive Eating Update

It’s been just under three weeks that I have been eating intuitively. To be honest, I think what I’m doing is more of a combination of intuitive eating/healthy eating/mindful eating. I’m not “totally going for it” as the intuitive eating books tell you. I think that is aimed more at people who have been dieting […]

This is a cross post that is also running on We Are the Real Deal. I just got done reading a really great book about recovering from an eating disorder and learning to fall back in love with life and yourself. It’s called “goodbye ed, hello me” by Jenni Schaefer, a recovered anorexic and bulimic. […]

Some people have emailed me privately and asked me how I figured out what my goal weight was and how I’ve been able to have maintained it for a year and a half now. I thought it might be good to answer in the form of a post. To be honest, I never had a […]

My birthday was yesterday and the weekend included a little bit of a little bit of struggle, but mostly great stuff. The birthday celebration started Friday night when two dear friends took me out to dinner. There is nothing like getting out with a couple of friends and just relaxing while the husband takes care […]

I had such a great appointment with my therapist yesterday. I had sent him my last couple of blogs so he was prepared for me to come in ready to get down to business. As always, I left his office with not with what I thought I wanted, but instead, with what I needed. First […]
