6. Cookie Daze (Newton) on June 15, 2019.

These things can only be achieved by PRAYING (#1), getting HONEST with myself, choosing to eat healthy and use my tools (WILLINGNESS), talk to someone when I'm struggling (OPEN-MINDEDNESS), exercise to manage my moods (THERAPY), not weighing myself when I'm feeling compulsive/obsessive about my weight (the scale is NOT my friend and that number is JUST a number), refraining from CHILDISH self-centeredness, and being a SURVIVOR instead of playing the victim. Food is not good/bad, and it NOT a reward.

My Program:
- Attending OA/AA
- Abstaining from trigger foods and compulsive eating behaviors
- Intermittent fasting 12-16 hours/day
- None to Run 3x per week
- Biking/swimming (training for YMCA Tri Jan 2019)
- YMCA classes
- Weight training
- Walking
- More water/tea, less coffee/energy drinks/soda

I'd like to do a 5K every 6 weeks or so just to keep in shape and trained up. I just finished GOTR 05/11/19 - my goal is to do the Prairie Fire Half Marathon on Sun October 13, 2019 - that's 22 weeks from now.

    Hey, Stephanie. Looks like my birthday greeting was way late! I got the impression from one of your blogs, I think, that your birthday had been more recent. Anyway, even if it was a while back, I congratulate you for making it through another year, and I hope your next one will be full of joy.

    My birthday is December 29th. I'll be 62!! Surreal! Inside, I still often feel like a teenager, with all my issues and insecurities. Time to grow up!

    Stephanie, I really appreciated your comments on my recent blogs about my trip to Denver. You are kind to tell me I'm a good writer. You know I feel the same way about you! I never fail to be gripped by your stories. Even when you write about food, it's interesting. So it's always delightful to get a personal comment or message from you. Thank you so much.

    Colorado has such a big sky, but I imagine the sky in Kansas is even bigger. I'd love to see the Great Plains someday.
