Love Yourself with Healthy Food

Whenever we talk about self-esteem or learning to love ourselves, we never talk about one of the most POWERFUL ways to show it. My whole life, I’ve felt that the way you tell if someone loves you is by their ACTIONS, not their words. If a guy said he loved me and then insulted me [...]

Prepare Healthy Meals Ahead of Time

I saw this picture on naive orleanss — buns-and-guns: I did a thing and I thought, “How clever!” It reads: I did a thing. This reminds me of my Easy Meals that I did back in 2008: Starling Fitness – Easy Meals: Mexi-Beans Starling Fitness – Easy Meals: Italian Beans Starling Fitness – Easy Meals: [...]

Fruit Is Fast Food

I found this banner on Pinterest the other day. It reads: Fruit is fast food It’s true. It’s really easy to grab an apple, pear or nectarine on your way out the door. The only problem with this idea is if you didn’t BUY the fruit the last time you went grocery shopping. Make sure [...]

A Meditation for When You Want To Binge

Imagine yourself in a lush, green park. The grass is perfectly soft and dry. The sun outside is bright, but a light breeze keeps you from getting too warm. You sit in the grass and start thinking. First, you think about bingeing. You think about that feeling and feel it deep in your chest. That [...]

Constantine: Father Hennessy’s Death Scene Is What Bingeing Is Like

At some point, not even the best food in the world could appease me. I couldn’t stop eating. Nothing satisfied me and I was hungry ALL day long, no matter what I ate. I recently rewatched Constantine and Father Hennessy’s death scene is exactly what it was like for me with food. It’s a wonder [...]

Indiana Jones and the Final Crusade Is A Representation of the First Three Steps

I don’t know how to express how much this scene from the end of Indiana Jones and the Final Crusade has helped me. If you have never seen the movie, watch it now, or be spoiled. In this scene, Indy’s father has been shot by the Nazis and the only way he can save his [...]

An Extra 2,500 Steps A Day

So, I thought I would try to increase my exercise slightly. It might be my disease talking and if it is, I’ll keep an eye on it. I’ll talk to my sponsor about it. But, for now, I feel okay. I signed up for a challenge on Lose It! that works with my FitBit. To [...]

Excess Fabric

Board shorts. If you’ve never seen them, they’re like regular shorts, but they are made of material that works well with swimming. They dry quickly and they don’t chafe as much when they are wet. They’re shorts for when you are surfing the waves or kayaking the lake. You’re gonna get wet, but you don’t [...]

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 [...]
