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. …

Post Birthday Update!

Well, it’s official.. I am 31 years old, and so far… it’s been pretty epic! OK so here’s the scoop, I have a top secret project under way, and once I have all the ducks lined up in a nice row I will be shouting it to the rooftops! Seriously y’all, I’m crazy excited and …

Post Eval Update

So life is a little crazy at the mo’ and as a result this post is way late in the posting… BUT it’s been for the best reasons ever! Little V and Monkey are both 1 (well almost.. Monkey man’s bday bash is this Sat) I’ve got some serious ants in my pants cause I …

I might be sort of married-ish?

OK… for those who know me in real life, this past weekend my love and I had a very early pre-wedding run through / engagement party / engagement photo shoot… Not everyone will understand the WHY behind what we did, or why we chose to do things the way we did… and not all of …

Stress Eating

Lately, I have been under a lot of stress, and as a result, I’ve been constantly hungry and grazing or nibbling, or all out just snacking / eating… whatever…. The end result is that I haven’t lost any weight (obviously) and in fact I have gained. To say that I am mad at myself would …

The Jitters

Off and on lately I’ve been feeling jittery… it is driving me absolutely insane. I did have a french vanilla cappuccino this morning (6:30 am)… but it has been over 12 hours, so I don’t think that could be what’s causing this ongoing anxiousness.
