The Apple Watch: OMG! DO WANT!

I usually talk about watches and other gadgets on The Gadgets Page. I have had a HATE/HATE relationship with the watch designers of the world for the last nine years, so, understandably, this watch has pleased me VERY much. You can read the gadget review here: Gadgets Page » FINALLY! The Apple Watch Is The [...]

Don’t Change Be Yourself Unless You’re A Jerk

There is a more vulgar version of this floating around Pinterest, but it wasn’t that pretty and I really wanted one that didn’t swear, so I made one. It reads: Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you. Unless you’re a jerk. Then you should [...]

What Are Your Favorite Songs To Run To?

I laughed out loud when I saw this Facebook post on Imgur the other day. It reads: Montreal: Hey Facebook kids, what are your favourite songs to run to? Friend Replied: I made my own song. It’s a mix of zombie noises, people saying, “I’m going to cut you,” “Come here little boy,” and police [...]

NOT My HP Anymore: The Scale

The best measure of a man’s honesty isn’t his income tax return. It’s the zero adjust on his bathroom scale. - Arthur C. Clarke Honestly, my scale was my Higher Power for YEARS. Whether I had a good day or a bad day depended entirely on my weight in the morning. My judgment about the [...]

I Was In No Mood To Eat One

My friend, Roland, and his wife did some service for the local boy scouts and manned the Tiger Ear Booth to help them earn money. He wrote about it here: Magic Number: 7 — Eastern Idaho State Fair | Roland K. Smith’s Weblog The Tiger Ear Booth was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime event (that is, you [...]

Not Worthy of Something So Delicious

I haven’t played Animal Crossing in quite a while, so when I saw Tank, I was so happy to help him. He said he was hungry and wanted some fruit, so I grabbed him a perfect pear. Perfect pears are worth A LOT of money in the game, but I have so much money that [...]

And This, Too, Shall Pass Away

Last night, I painted my nails. I combined two colors, a really dark green creme with an iridescent pink and ended up with this shade. I don’t know if I like it or not, but then I realized that it doesn’t matter. In two days, it will be chipped and need to be removed, whether [...]

Motivate Your Mind And Your Body Will Follow

I found this image on Incensus – Motivate the mind, and the body will follow It reads: Motivate your mind and your body will follow. It’s true. The days when I meditate are easier for me when it comes to eating and exercise. Meditation is just sitting still for fifteen minutes. Logically, it burns hardly [...]

The Two Facets of My Disease: Angels and Demons

I saw this Tumblr post from RyanJJohn today and I cringed with recognition. He said: Every day I struggle between “I wanna look good naked” and “treat yo self.” There they are again: the two facets of my disease. For the longest time, I only thought that the “treat yo self” aspect was my disease [...]

Exercise Is Totally Hard And Stuff

I was looking at A New Leaf in Everfree and I found this animated GIF from the game, Animal Crossing. It reads: Cookie, the lazy dog, says, “Yeah, exercise is totally hard and stuff. I think I’m gonna go take a nap and read a book or whatever.” It’s true. If you over-do it, like [...]

Health and Fitness Magazines Never Had What I Needed

I saw the ad on the corner of the screen. I can’t even remember where I was on the vast chasms of the Internet, but I saw it there: an ad for Self Magazine. I was surprised when I saw it because I wasn’t attracted to it. The inexpensive price for the subscription didn’t attract [...]

Can’t Buy It. Can’t Read It In A Book.

I have been rereading my entries about my spiritual experiences, because they are… lacking… Starling Fitness – The Spiritual Awakening: The Other Presence Starling Fitness – The Spiritual Awakening: At One With The Universe Starling Fitness – The Spiritual Awakening: On The Roof No matter how I rewrite them, I can’t convey the feeling that [...]

How To Start And End Your Day With Love

I read the headline to this old Sara Lee advertisement and I thought to myself, “THAT! That was my problem for so long!” It reads: How to start and end your day with love. Pecan Morning Love Strawberry French Cheesecake Evening Love That’s what we all want, right? We want to start our day with [...]

Two Facets of my Disease

I saw this image on Breathe Happiness and it shocked me into a realization. It reads: Fasting day 1 in full effect Going to eat the rest of my graduation cake for every meal today because I don’t even CARE. Built to Bulk posted this first and commented: There are two types of people… The [...]

How To Use A Rosary for OA Meditations

I like to meditate for fifteen minutes each day. It gives me a hit of those brain chemicals that feel even better than the dopamine response I get from food. I’ve found that using a rosary for my meditations is an easy way to get a fifteen-minute meditation without a timer. It gives me a [...]

Beware The Pumpkin Spice Latte

Starbucks is bringing back the Pumpkin Spice Latte early this year, which brings joy to many people, apparently. I’ve seen excited ramblings on Tumblr and FaceBook, which is all well and good, but only if you know what you’re getting into. You see, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is not just a cup of coffee. It’s [...]

Food Porn

I had to adjust my Pinterest boards recently. I realized that so many of the things that my friends were pinning were food porn. They weren’t necessarily unhealthy foods being posted, but I was seeing page after page of pictures of food. Sure, they were healthy food pictures like this one. Still so many images [...]

Anorexia Knows No Age

This postcard from PostSecret reminded me how hard eating disorders can be. It reads: Anorexia does not discriminate and it knows no age. People assume that anorexia is a young person’s disease because that’s all we see in the media, but it can hit people at any age. The same is true with bulimia, binge-eating [...]

Shake It Off

I love this new song by Taylor Swift called Shake It Off! There were many times when I overate because of something mean someone did to me. Ironically, overeating may have made me feel better at the moment, but it hurt me in the long run, so I let that person hurt me TWICE. Learning [...]

The Tools of Recovery: Service

Part of the reason I have enjoyed so much success with Overeaters Anonymous is because of their tools of recovery. You can read more about them here: Tools Of Recovery – Overeaters Anonymous Service is the final tool of recovery. I have found a lot of solace in it. The Big Book says that when [...]
