Consistency

Consistency is something I love because it's predictable and that need or want for predictability in life can drive me crazy because life is anything but predictable.  I felt bad for not being able to post yesterday but the day was busy with the kids and getting things done like grocery shopping and then my WW meeting last night.  I ended up falling asleep getting my almost 2yr old to sleep last night and just kept on sleeping (that was 8pm at night). 

In terms of consistency my weight loss has had it's ups and downs but my health has continued to go in the right direction and I need to look at the big picture and not focus on a bad day (the scale said -.4 last night at my meeting - I'm not complaining however I would have loved to see a better number).

This spring I'm taking a trip to San Francisco and running a 12k.  I must say I'm beyond excited to go on this trip.  My husband and kids will be home with the grandparents and a sitter.  I will miss them terribly but with Skype I will get to see them every day (this will be my first trip away sans the kids and husband since???).  The thing I feel a little bit nervous about is eating on this trip.  We are staying at my friends sisters place so there will be access to a kitchen and that is great!  I plan on buying fruit and cottage cheese or yogurt to have on hand for a snack in addition to having some eggs and bread on hand for breakfast.  The part that I feel nervous about is I want to try all the yummy food in San Francisco but I want to not 'binge' and gain weight on this trip.  If I can lose weight that would be great but if I just maintain then I will be beyond happy. 

I need to just relax no matter what! :-)

7 1/2 Weeks Post Op - 185lbs

It's been almost 8 weeks since my surgery. I never thought I would see this day! The aqua therapy and physical therapy has paid off (as well as the surgery). My leg and back are pain free. Yesterday at my last physical therapy appointment I hopped, skipped, jumped and ran on the treadmill for 2 minutes! Pain Free!!! I never thought I would hear myself say the words: "I ran". My recovery time for this surgery was a lot tougher than the surgery I had last year. It feels like I can start to move forward. Unfortunately during my recovery time for comfort I've done a lot of eating. When I was actively exercising/running I would get a runners high. I think that was a big help to keeping me on track with my eating. The endorphins gave me a comfort high. However when I feel stress and lack of control and running isn't an option I tend to gravitate to food. Food and the pleasure of eating it is something I can control. Unfortunately there is a down side and that is we

Sonya 'Lost It'

Well it's now after Christmas and before New Years as I write this post.  I have been on hiatus for a long time on my blog.  I've been spending some of my time thinking about what I was going to write. I have been through some difficult times starting back in late October.  What I am about to write is very personal.   I feel a little bit foolish for sharing this with everyone as most people don't share their 'business' never mind posting it in a blog.  My hope in this post is to not have people feel sorry for me but that readers get an understanding for my situation and also an understanding of others who are going through something similar. Taking a deep breath. I am currently being treated for depression and anxiety and I'm almost finished with an intensive outpatient program at a local hospital (thankfully it's an amazing psychiatric hospital about 40 minutes from my home). For those who are reading this and have either gone through a depressive

Healthy Boundaries?

Growing up I always felt like I had to 'do what I was told' or else. A lot of what I learned as a child in terms of relationship bonds and my place in the world is mirrored in my adult relationships. It's taken me many years to figure what my mirror is showing me both good and bad. I'm guessing many woman (not all) have felt the pressure to conform to others expectations and at the same time not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings or risk being seen as uncooperative. The price woman have paid over the decades has been insurmountable. I think of the mom on Leave It To Beaver, and how woman either bought into or felt that's what they should aspire to. Later on in television was the Mary Tyler Moore Show. The show was about a single woman in her thirties working at a TV station. In the show she was portrayed as a strong independent woman who knew more than those she worked with. Many decades since then more women are in the workplace than ever and more are showing
