Out of sorts day

Friday, February 29, 2008

I'm having dental implant surgery today. Oof. So entries and info might be sporadic for a few days. My diet is going to consist, mainly, of yogurt and soup. Oh joy.

  


Who cares what games we choose?

Thursday, February 28, 2008

There's something about lyrics. If you asked me if I pay attention more to music than to lyrics, I would/will always answer: "lyrics".

And they mean something to me. Perhaps that's trite but I get something out of it. I'm going through the weight loss journey, looking for clues, and at times I find them in music.

The other day, I had on a CD of 60s music, and "Incense and Peppermints" (by The Strawberry Alarm Clock) came on. Now, it's kind of a strange song to be working out to as the tempo shifts. So I listened to the words as I was doing crunches, and it resonated with me:

Who cares what games we choose?

Well, who, indeed?

Decluttering my life

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

I'm looking at my old clothes -- and all I can think of is: what the heck was I thinking????

Many of them are not bad, but they are not terribly professional and they're cheap. Cheap to buy, cheap to wash, cheaply made. I counted 30 shirts and blouses alone -- and these are just my cold weather clothes! Now, I know that there are plenty of people with more, but this is a small closet.

So I've come to a decision. For my final weight -- whatever that ends up being and whenever that ends up happening -- I just want the minimum. Not just one outfit, of course, but not this festival of every sleeve length and every conceivable neckline in a variety of colors. I like color and neckline choices, to be sure, but I'm thinking that it will be better to have fewer pieces but better ones. Things I have to take care of. Things that require a little time and attention.

Then again, I don't exist to enrich my local dry cleaner. :)

I'll find a happy medium I'm sure.

  


All caught up

I've got my fave foods listed, my recipe is off and running (hey, I'm making it tonight ..) and fitness tracking is happening. Hmm, maybe I'll go into message board land ...

  


Not quite at the first goal yet

Monday, February 25, 2008

Okay well then it'll be next week. 331 this morning, right on the dot. No question re why it happened; it was a wacky, off-kilter weekend. There's always next week -- this is a marathon, not a sprint.
