No Resting, No Rusting!
Tuesday, June 02, 2009      2 comments

Getting Time Alone
Sunday, May 31, 2009      2 comments

I wish I had more time to myself. I think I would exercise more and eat better. Or maybe I would just watch more TV and develop a nasty video game habit. OK, I don't need A LOT more time alone, just a little more. Perhaps I should send my husban... Read more

Reprogramming my behavior patterns
Tuesday, May 05, 2009      3 comments

I know that I binge eat because of anxiety, stress, anger, frustration and various other emotions that I don't want to feel. I'm done minimizing it and hoping that it will go away on its own. I've learned yoga, breathing techniques, relaxation t... Read more
