Health update 2/22/18

If you've been following this blog for six years or longer, you know that my fitness/health/weight loss journey has been one of many peaks and valleys. If you've only been following three years or less, you might think I must have no idea what's going on or how to make weight loss happen. The past [...]

Awaken

That's my word for 2018. I feel like so much in me has been asleep for so long. Some of it for the past year, some for a few years, some for my whole life. Potential for greatness in so many areas, lying dormant, or lulled to sleep by fear and the lies that causes [...]

It’s like this right now

I have probably mentioned that I use the Calm app for mindfulness, meditation, deep breathing, and help falling asleep. There is a feature called the Daily Calm, which is a 10-15 minute meditation that is new each day, and, oh my stars, y’all, today’s was perfect. Last night I was talking with E about how [...]

Fall Health Goals Week Five

This week was crazy and wonderful and different, because Scott took the week off! It was wonderful beyond words, and though I’m a bit worn out in some ways, I’m renewed in others. Food: even with Scott home this week I are really well, and I’m proud of that! Only thing really of note is [...]

Fall Health Goals Week Four

Here I am, halfway through the week again, and just now recapping things.  MomLife- Whaddya gonna do? I don't think I even promoted my last post on my SM accounts. It was a good week, though, and I'm super excited about where I am finding myself and where I see myself going in the near [...]

Fall Health Goals Week Three

So, yeah, this is a little late...but here I am! This past week I found myself not just feeling better than I had before that terrible energy trench last month, but better than I have in, maybe years, physically, at least. Mental health is improving, but, as I hope to share more about soon, it’s [...]

The strange dichotomy of personality and illness.

I started this last Friday, and I’m finishing on Monday, and it’ll be a slightly different post than I planned..because God is amazing with how He chooses to make His presence known. I’m so lonely. I miss my family, every single one of them. I miss my mama’s hugs, the way she loves my babies. [...]

Fall Health Goals Week 2

What a week! I am so glad I’ve made these changes! It’s still fairly early days to know all the benefits and effects, but I am so excited to share with you what I’m experiencing so far. First, I want to share about the aesthetic stuff that I am officially not focused on right now, [...]

One week into Health Goals Fall 2017…

First, Thursday is a weird day to be writing these updates, so after this I’ll be switching to Sunday or Monday. So, expect to hear more about this week then. So, a week ago I wrote about how I was going to shift my focus until at least the end of October to taking care [...]

New goals as Fall Begins

With all the new perspective I'm gaining lately on rest, self love, and self care, I find myself in need of some new/updated goals for this fall that match. I'd really like to be finished losing weight-y'all know that by now. Part of it is that I just hate having things unfinished. I like to [...]
