    I took the quiz and also marked off a majority (though not all 10). There is a reason why I had to take a medical leave of absence from work earlier this year and then immediately change jobs (within the same company) upon my return. Meditation/guided relaxation, talk therapy, and even meds can help.

    I have seen this quiz and when I took it I did ok but it sure is an eye opener.

Popcorn Failure

Sunday, October 31, 2010

I made the fatal mistake of trying the popcorn setting on the microwave, using the last bag. It failed. Burned terribly; there's no more in the cupboard. Why don't I just run to the store, you ask? Well, I am marking and it was supposed to be my mindless snacking option ... le sigh.


How do you think?

Think like a woman of action; act like a woman of thought.
- adapted from Henry Bergson

This is how I want to be perceived.

I am learning to be a master gardener. My flowers are thriving and the compost was textbook in colour and texture.


Positive Thought for Saturday Oct 16

I turn to friends, to exercise, even to the internet (to write about food) when faced with emotional issues. I eat appropriate portion sizes - read the package and measure accordingly, then write it down.
