Wanna Binge… Will not Binge

Honesty time? I’ve been doing really well lately, so of course just as I thought maybe I was normal, my brain would turn into a “C” word. I’m not sure what brought on the urge, I wasn’t hungry, or sad, or stressed out or angry… I just really, really REALLY wanted to eat… everything. It’s …

Panic and Pictures

Mike and I had our engagement shoot a few weeks back, and though in hindsight I’m learning to see the good, in the moment, it was pure hell. Not because our photographer was bad, she is AMAZING, and not because it was horrible weather, it was a bit nippy, but that meant no sweating so …

A hard day’s night

I keep starting this post, and then having no idea how to go forward. Alright, so feet first, I’m a dive right in and get it over with kind of girl. I definitely, definitely have Binge Eating Disorder… and in fact, I have been doing a lot worse than I thought I was, all of …

Binge Eating and Me

Full disclosure? I am afraid of tomorrow, scared of what will happen, of what I am about to face, of admitting things I haven’t even had the guts to write on here yet. This is even more scary than me admitting and going through the process of a mental health exam at the Royal Ottawa. …

What kind of bride should I be?

The title says it all folks, this is my current dilemma. No, I’m not talking about whether or not to be a Bridezilla… I am fairly confident based on my bridal party’s reactions that I am the anti-zilla, probably to the point of annoyance (Sorry guys)… What I mean is: Do I come to terms …

37 weeks and 1 day away

In 37 weeks and 1 day, I will become Mrs. Martin (Jury is still out on if I will be legally changing my name or simply assuming it… OR if we’ll do something zany like create our own brand new last name!!! *Place suggestions in the comment box below*) In all this time, our wedding …

Progress?

Alright so here’s the scoop. Since my last post I have managed to lose 2 lbs. It’s not a miracle, but it’s what I did, and I did it all by myself. But that’s not the progress that I want to talk about. The progress is that (and I may be crazy) I think the …

Making Changes

OK.. so first of all, let me start this with saying there will be no “New Year, New Me” BS. I don’t believe in New Years Resolutions, and so I never make any. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get down to brass tacks. 1) I am full time now, which means it …
