Coming up for air...

When I am silent I have thunder hidden inside.
— Rumi

As my silence on this blog indicates I have reached a cross-road on this weight-loss journey, once again. So I am moving to a new blog! I hope you will go over there and check it out and read more on why I am doing this :)

Road trips are tricky for my diet as we love finding interesting restaurants and enjoying great food. I did prepare healthy snacks for the car and am trying to watch my portions. Last night we had dinner at a jazz club, the music was wonderful and I ordered their renown blackened salmon caesar salad which was one of the best I’ve ever had. This morning we went to a waffle place for brunch...

Guilt, self compassion and resistance. How I got out of my head.

Sunday is weigh-in day. Didn’t want to do it today as we went out for easter dinner at a friend’s house last night and Friday night I had a bit of a pizza binge. But Sunday is weigh-in day and I like to be consistent about that, if not much else! I was down 0.4 lbs and any loss makes me happy on Sundays. I’ve been reflecting on my Pizza night where I ate more than my body wanted and...

A nice loss and grateful to be getting back into the flow of things

My scales this morning showed a 7.2 lbs loss since last Wednesday. Wow. I have no doubt that this is mostly water and an indication of the increase in high sodium processed foods leading up to my decision to get back on my program. I’ve been eating well this week, consuming between 1600-1800 cals, but also exercising more again in...

There is such a wealth of information out there in our digital world, so many stories, insights and shared wisdom. Some time ago I started collecting my favorite posts in Pocket (many people use Evernote which is great, too. I love Pocket for its simplicity). And I thought why not start sharing some of them on here as a regular feature? I am keeping it to five to make it not too overwhelming...

Stopping this runaway train: getting back to basics

OMG. These last few weeks have been such a roller coaster ride inside my head. Up and down, and down and up. Mood swings, binges, healthy eating, going for walks, sitting on my butt all day, eating out a lot, embracing intuitive eating one moment, totally struggling with it the next. Then, a few days ago, I decided to redesign my blog. It’s of course not unusual for me...

Full Disclosure

I’ve eaten some pretty lovely meals this week by paying more attention to their quality and how they make me feel in my heart and my body. I’m also learning that number three is really hard for me! I am such a distracted eater even when I am not watching TV or sitting in front of my computer. My thoughts - often the anxious ones - keep running away with me and before I know it my plate is empty and my anxiety...

Fears and Doubts. Certainty and Clarity.

Sunday morning. Which, as I am suddenly realizing, has become my favorite day of the week. I often wake up early and now that I have my cozy home office I grab a cup of tea from the kitchen and settle down with my journal, my office assistant (who sleeps a lot!), Ludovico softly playing in the background while I contemplate my week and pour my thoughts and feelings...

Ready to embrace Intuitive Eating

Four days into my Month of Mindful Eating I am gaining a lot more clarity about the direction I am heading into. I decided that I want to fully embrace Intuitive Eating and learn to trust myself to make the right choices for my body, my health and my emotional & mental well being. This sounds like a pretty tall order to me but when I wrote my...
