Living your best life when you have a ~disorder~

And the scale says…plus more information about calorie counting and Noom

Speaking of Pinterest trends…I’m all about the bullet journal “habit trackers”

I like doodling with purpose! I don't do much with my bullet journal other than track my habits. This habit tracking … Continue reading Speaking of Pinterest trends…I’m all about the bullet journal “habit trackers”

Happy 4th! I experimented with another Pinterest recipe and the outcome was *delightful*

Happy 4th of July friends! My husband had to work, and all of our close friends from Baltimore are celebrating out of town.

2 pounds down: slowly chipping away at my plateau

I weighed myself this morning. I was weighing myself every day, but it was messing with my head. So I'm back to only doing it once or twice per week. I am now 174 pounds!
