The Shallow List of Thanks

BetJett's Friday Five

shallow list of thanks, bethany

I hope everyone had a great day yesterday, relaxing, working, reading, writing, eating…definitely eating…and perhaps a little pre-Black Friday shopping. We had a lovely stress-free day and it was wonderful, as was the cornbread casserole, which was the first side dish to be completely obliterated. My poor beautiful green bean casserole was not shown the […]

Day 22-31: Trick, Treat, or Treadmill

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating

It’s been 31 days of this writing challenge which is crazy. I wasn’t sure if I would write every day…and I didn’t…but I think that’s okay. I didn’t want this to become a play-by-play food log. However, the accountability of the challenge did help. #1 Gym membership. I LOVE working out with my husband, but consistency […]

Days 16-21: Self-Consciousness & Childhood Routines

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating, #write31days

Confession: I despise how I look. Sometimes I’ll take a super great selfie and I know it looks like the body attached to the face is a size six…at the max…which is a total falsehood. Being extremely self-conscious of my weight means I don’t want to go to the doctor or even use a free […]

Days 7 – 15: Off the Wagon

Bethany Jett, #Write31Days

I’m lame. I really thought I’d blog each day but alas. Here we are at Day 15. I’ve totally binged. On the way to speak at a fundraiser for the HOPE Resource Center, I enjoyed more than my share of snack-age. Staples for the road trip: caramel cremes, honey bbq Fritos, and a sugar-free Monster […]

Day 6: Eating before Public Speaking

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating

stop binge-eating,

Tonight I’m speaking a pregnancy crisis center fundraiser and I am beyond jazzed. But with public speaking comes nervous jitters and delicate tummies. I definitely won’t binge-eating tonight, unless it’s after the fundraiser. Bring it on. Tips for Eating Before Public Speaking To prepare for tonight’s talk, I ate a balanced breakfast of cheerios and […]

Day 5: Eating on an Outing

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating, stop binge-eating

We went to the zoo yesterday and it was awesome-sauce. Thankfully the park wasn’t crowded enough to have all of the vendors selling their delicious wares and I was able to easily bypass the Dip-n-Dots. Because, well, they weren’t being sold. Eating on an outing is difficult…I would have inhaled those lovely round dry-iced cream […]

Day 4: No Midnight Snack

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating

No Midnight Snack,

It’s Day 4 of the #Writer31Days challenge. Technically, it’s almost midnight on Day 3, but I write these the evening before. This is the problem: I’m tired (exhausted, really) and I’m willing myself not to go get a snack. If I wasn’t trying to be better about my eating habits, I’d go grab something. To be […]

Day 3: Road Trip Temptations

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating

Road Trip

It’s Day 3 of the #Write31Days Challenge. I wasn’t expecting to feel accountable about binge-eating but I was thinking about what I had to write while I was reaching for the snack bag. Big win – I did not eat the entire bag of caramel cremes, my current candy nemesis. Planning  I spent ten hours in […]

Day Two: Close the Green Ring

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating

close the green ring,

It’s Day 2 of the #Write31Days Challenge. My topic: 31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating. In case you missed it, check out yesterday’s post here. I promised that I would share about how I got my husband to gift me a gym membership, so here we go. It Started With a FitBit. The majority of my work […]

Day One

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating,

Fun thing–this month begins a new challenge called Write 31 Days. All over this great nation, and possibly the world, bloggers everywhere are starting their series on numerous topics. Mine: 31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating. Honestly… Binge-eating is a symptom of other issues. Like stress. As I was researching my Meyers Briggs personality (INFJ), I […]
