This hit me as my reality this morning...

Monday, December 15, 2014

“Every time you feel yourself being pulled into other people’s drama, repeat these words . . . NOT MY CIRCUS, NOT MY MONKEYS.”

Thanks 1CrazyDog for my inspiration this morning.

    This is SUCH a funny saying -- and I'm relieved that those potato chips were YOUR circus and monkeys, not mine. (Would never never never send you my slow to budge pounds, no I would NOT!! and the salt weight will go fast, promise).

    I never understand why people want drama in their lives so I just tend to ignor the drama seekers

Looking to burn some calories tonight...

Thursday, December 11, 2014



Dress rehearsal is always a stressful evening, working out the kinks in the songs, the staging, the scenery, the dancing. Gonna be a great show. If you live in the San Diego County area, grab some tickets and spend an evening in good cheer.

A very good question...

Friday, December 05, 2014

Nancy asked "do you have a plan for when stuff I like comes in" at the workplace. Avoidance is the only plan I have. Just walk away. One of my favorite ways to avoid eating something I know I shouldn't is to simply stop and drink a glass of water. Its an oral activity, a distraction, a reward ( yes I love drinking water), and filling, too.

    Excellent! I keep breath mint handy, with a glass of water. Mint makes other(some) foods taste funkie.

    Hahaha, I like the comment left by WATERMELLEN. Resistance IS futile! But, distraction works for me, too.

    Yup, I can resist anything but temptation. My will power wears out very quickly! Distraction, avoidance, substitution: all better for me than noble resistance. Resistance is futile!!

I am grateful when people bring goodies into the office that I don't like! More taffy, more sugar canes, more gum drops...

    This is the time of year its time to call on all of our defenses against the sweets. Good job ignoring them today and good luck the rest of the holiday season. Have a great weekend and keep working toward your goals!

How come the office smells like donuts?

Monday, November 24, 2014

Must be memory aroma...from Friday's Nov. birthday celebration.



Please don't let anyone bring in donuts this morning! If I see a

    We had a saying in nursing school for 5 AM clinical rotations: "It's time to make the donuts!" I think it was an old Dunkin Donuts commercial. Anyway, no one ever brought them because we'd all eat them! Take care and staaaay away from the donuts! ;-).

    Lol.... temptation can be hard. I too know this all to well, but like so many others I am learning to talk to my food temptations and to myself. I start out by asking myself where that food is going to look best, on my lips, on my waist or on that plate? It usually remains on the plate or in the box. I also ask myself if the taste is going to be worth the waste of all my hard work to loose that 1 pound just to gain back 2 pounds and then I try to picture the weight gain. Or the disappointment I would have in myself if I gave in to the temptation. Try to teach yourself a few little tricks that will work for you. I have a friend that taught me " that it is better to go out in the waste, than to go around your waist" so she will actually soak the offending food in a sink full of water and then place it in the trash can. I really love this idea. It works great.
You might want to try a couple of these ideas yourself when it comes to temptation.
