Still can't believe I chose Bananas over Peanut M&Ms...

Friday, August 14, 2009

I stared into the vending machine...this can't be right? There sat a 3.27 oounce bag of Peanut M&Ms for only $1.25! Normally for that price you get the 1.74 ounce bag. Twice the deliciousness for half the money. As I stood there, sippin on my freshly reheated coffee, it dawned on me: this is a test! I remembered I still had the two bananas I bought earlier for a whopping .35 cents and figured long term, they were the better deal.

    Good job! It would have been a hard choice for me, too, but the good feeling from knowing you passed the test will last much longer than the temporary enjoyment and then guilty feelings you probably would have had from the candy. emoticon

    emoticon on making the right choice! I never liked bananas too much but that has been changing. I probably would have made the same choice, but it is definitely progress, and I am sure you felt much better about it at the end of the day.

What's Wrong With This Picture??? (pic)

Tuesday, August 11, 2009



Guess Subway hasn't heard the news about America's "growing" problem. When did they start super sizing? Is it our responsibility to say no at the register or is it there's not to come up with offers like these? Is it ethical to make a buck up selling while your very customers are getting sicker? So many questions...

    Awww the power of the almighty dollar. So many business will put profit above everything else. It is a sad reality. The only way they will stop is if it isn't making money.
Is it ethical, no!
We as consumers will have to be the one to stand up and say no I can't live this way anymore!

    Greed drives a lot of us to do stupid things, like buy to get something free. We should think what the free or reduced cost actually costs us.

    We all have a responsibility to ourselves to make responsible decisions about our health and our eating, but offers like these DO make it a lot more difficult. The ethics in our country will not change until the public reaches an outcry and more and more people take responsibility for their own eating.

    I guess that is how SUBWAY is staying in competition with the other fast food restaurants. I don't go to fast food restaurants so I've not seen this. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

    Freedom of speech and to make a buck. The laws are on the producers side. The saying you can pull a donkey to water but can't make it drink.. People have to show backbone and start saying no. Peer pressure can work both ways, actually responsiblity stops with the individual, and as long as people see every one else doing they think why should I? Many people run the risk of health issues, and regret when they are on their doorsteps..
A few well placed laws are needed to avoid these signs Believe me the producers know what they are doing and I think it is helping people committment active suicide. These producers are making other human being look snot dumb and a easy push over to make a buck...

New Sneakers...New Hope!

Sunday, August 09, 2009



I hope to run my first 5k with these Nikes! If not, they're at least gonna do overtime helping me move my butt down to my goal range. I've only been using them for a few days now but so far so good. Nike Dart VI. Thanks Mallory for the help!

    Good luck with the sneaks. Its about time for me to invest in a new pair. I never really used them for exercise until I joined SP. Don't think I ever wore the tread off before!

Keep It Movin'

    I just purchased a new pair of sneakers too, mine got drenched at Kings Dominion. Sometimes we just need fresh feet to feel better.

When will I learn...or rather, when will I apply that learnin'?

Saturday, August 08, 2009



Wow, back at the desktop staring at a bunch of logs and scriblings... Do I dare enter all the food I've eaten and all the workouts over the last 2 to 3 weeks? Points are nice but this is gonna take time. Time that would probably be better spent working out.

The price for success is discipline. The older I get the price on that tag never changes. When I came across the Japanese term "Kaizen" recently it was nice to know that a whole philosophy existed around what I've felt for a long time: a good life, business, relationship is made better with continual incremental improvements. It truly is the little things that add up over time to make something wonderful. So while I'd rather be doing a lot of other things I'm going to start entering this data. I can hear my future thanking me already. emoticon

    I'll be looking up this "Kaizen" of which you speak, because I am a nerd and I like to learn, thankyouverymuch. ;)

    I hear you! I was just thinking about this last night when I left my log half undone because I was so tired I just needed to go to bed RIGHT THEN. It does require a type of discipline to which I haven't held myself accountable in my personal life.

Reading this post reassures me because it says I'm not alone in my struggle--and in my commitment. I will make a pinky promise with you not to give up.
