Life has been productive since my last post. I handed in a 2500 word essay, made progress in three other assignments, gave my living room a deep clean, and also managed to plan my daughters birthday party for next weekend. Yesterday, as a small reward to myself, I came back from the school run, got … Continue reading A mixed bag.
This Halloween was a quiet one for us. Long gone are the huge family parties, and with them the sense of occasion. I am finding it hard. My counsellor would ask me "what does your life look like without them?" and my reply was always "quiet." Quiet isn't a bad thing, many days I long … Continue reading A flicker of light.
This Sunday will mark 8 weeks since my last binge. I can't quite believe it. I have been really busy lately. This school year has brought a whole new morning routine, as I now have two kids to get ready and packed, and I now have to drive my husband to work since he changed … Continue reading Still binge free.
The last few weeks have been a whirlwind. Making the most of the last few weeks before my youngest child began school saw me cast aside any duty or routine. We were lazy. We lay in bed until noon and wore our pyjamas until fresh ones were required. I still feel like that time could … Continue reading The end of an era.
Four weeks ago today I started this blog, and this journey. I looked myself straight in the eye and I said "enough." There were a lot of things I knew that day. I knew I was the biggest and heaviest I had ever been, and that I wasn't stopping. I knew that I was sick … Continue reading Four weeks binge free.
For my thirtieth birthday I chose to keep it low key. Breakfast was pancakes and milkshakes at a local restaurant, just me and the kids. We spent the day relaxing and waiting for my husband to get home from work. He had bought a cake, and a couple of presents that I will include in … Continue reading Celebration.
Today is my thirtieth birthday. I have already talked about how I feel leaving my twenties behind. Now I am ready to look forward and think about what is in store for me in the next decade, and what I hope to achieve over the next few years. So here is my list of goals … Continue reading Hello thirty!
Today is our third Wedding Anniversary. Our wedding feels so far away now, but at the same time it doesn't feel like three years have passed. So many things have changed, some good, some not so good. But on the whole the last three years have seen a lot of positive changes to our lives. … Continue reading Wedding anniversary.
Life has been very quiet in recent years. No family parties. No dinners with my parents. No getting together with the cousins. It has left a void. It was what I grew up with. Everyone around the table on whatever seat you could find, plates on knees. Looking back it is hard to ignore the … Continue reading Filling the void where family should be.
I have been quiet on here the last few days. Life got busy and I had a lovely weekend. I am still binge free. Three weeks yesterday. I am feeling so good about that. I have so much energy and I have noticed my appetite is getting smaller. On Saturday we went to the beach … Continue reading A busy weekend.
