Weekend Confessions

I think I am on my way to becoming an intuitive eater and I am rather excited about it.  My clothes are not getting baggier at this point, but I have to say I feel great, empowered, and happy.

My daisy still blooming in September also makes me happy.

I was reflecting on Sunday to Daniel about how my weekend eating is completely different now that I am not restricting different foods.  Whenever I would "get off track" (which happened A LOT on weekends) before it would trigger binging.  I would eat three high calorie food meals in a day and have snacks.  This weekend we grilled fajitas for lunch on Sunday.  I ate one and a half fajitas with a little rice and beans.  I stopped eating when I was full.  I wasn't hungry at dinner (it was a late lunch) so I didn't eat again that evening.  Complete change.  I love it.

I am logging my food, moods, and exercise in my handy dandy journal so I can see how my habits shift and how my appetite changes.

I am of course loving the journal since it gives me the opportunity to use lots of different colored pens.

I confess I am easily excited by bright colored pens.

In other news from life I have begun to decorate the house for fall.

And we brought home a foster pup over the weekend!  This is Wags!

She is a pretty sweet snuggle machine.  If you know anyone in the Houston area looking for a sweetie, she's a great one!

I am learning about dog training and in the interest of not showing favorites and being fair, here is a picture of our pup Sammy.

And our cat Trixie.


I hope you are enjoying balance in your life as well.

  1. Ema! It was so nice to meet you at Blog Elevated. I'm finally getting around to going to everyone's blogs and following. I have to admit I am also way better at journaling when i can use pretty colorful pens! It's so much fun. Also I love that you foster animals! I had a foster dog for two weeks a couple months ago, I wanted to keep her but we live in a one bedroom apartment. It was a great experience though!
