The Curse of the Murray Thighs

There is a curse upon the women of the Murray family. It is spoken of in hushed voices, feared in generations. One woman has had the courage to fight the curse. Training over the last 6 years in Praying Mantis Kung Fu, she now embarks on a mission to learn the magic of healthy eating.

My Program:
I walk to the grocery store to get food. I carry it back, up and over the hill to my house. Recently I've begun to stop myself part way through a meal and wait a few minutes to ensure I'm feeling properly how much food there is inside of me.. that helps a lot!

Mostly though, I'm going to the gym in the morning, work in the afternoon, and Kung Fu/ Tai Chi in the evenings.

Wow!! Thank you for the incense wish for clarity of thought -- that's exactly how I've felt over the past week or so, like all my angst and confusion finally settled back down like silt in a pond, or something like that.

Ohh guess what else?? I'm testing for a stripe on my belt on Saturday! So excited! How's your training going?

I had to add you as friend, hope you don't mind. I studied shaolin kung fu for two years. Was 2 weeks away from testing for brown belt when I had to quit class (another story). I LOVE mantis style (and bird). Now my body hardly looks like anything capable of it. Hope to get back to it after I slim back down.

Good luck!

Still getting caught up on blog comments....Thanks for the comment on my blog about my daughter's disappointment. Another Spark member who works in the TV industry confirmed that these "talent search" companies are almost always scams of some sort and not affiliated with Disney...although the local Radio Disney stations may get involved as in our case, the Radio Disneys are usually not closely affiliated with the Disney Corp. So Disney probably was not involved, although their name was used as the pretext. The best part...Jacq came downstairs the next day and said "It's stupid, THEY are supposed to pay YOU to be in a commercial, not the other way around. What a waste."

You can do the 5k!! Just keep up with your training! I slacked off a lil bit in the last two weeks, and regretted it. Do you have your 5K picked out yet?

Thanks so much for sharing your experience about the loss of your dog. I ultimately did decide to go see her oen last time, even though it was only for a few minutes. I'm glad I did. I really think that the positive vibes from you and other spark people helped!
