On a scale (no pun intended) of 1 to 10, how hungry am I? Right now, not hungry at all. I am on the low end. I ate breakfast 3 hours ago and the hungries have not yet kicked in. Yesterday, though, I was very hungry and it was a fight to keep myself from heading to cheater-town. Yup, I felt like chewing my right arm off.
I did go get some food in accordance with the "Belly Fat Cure" program I have started. So, I did stay within my guidelines. I was wicked proud of myself. I had a Lean Cuisine when I went home and I was ok. I was actually "HAPPY" to be able to "ENJOY" a Lean Cuisine.
For too long, I left myself pretty much eat whatever I wanted without being concerned with the consequences. Despite the times I have tried to eat "better," I would eat what I want and had limited success. The program I am doing now makes sense to me, but it has been a bit hard adjusting to it. It limits carbs and sugars. For the first time in a while, I am looking forward to weighing in and measuring my waist this wknd. Ha!
The day is going to ramp up to busy in a bit, and I'm hopeful that the day's distractions will keep me from dwelling on food.
Have a great day, everyone!!! WOO HOO!

New road work today made me scramble in a bit earlier to work. On my way in, I heard a song that makes me want to groove: "Let's Get it Started" by the Black Eyed Peas! Now, there's a prophetic moment if I ever had one. It is time to start doing, and never mind the how should I do it, just start doing!
I came into my office, settled down, and then shut the lights off (one side is visible from the hallway) and then I put this song on (love youtube) and got up and danced around. Yup. My movement has got to start somewhere and this is it. Drawing the line in the sand. Must move every day. I can do this, and this is my jumping off point!!!
Let's have a fantastic day!!! It is doable for all of us. One step (or song) at a time!!!! See you on the dance floor!

If you're happy and you know it, and you really want to show it...if you're happy and you know it, clap your hands! (Ok, I know a few may be cursing me today if this song lingers in your head for a while.) Mine too. I am happy!
I am feeling very comfortable in my own skin. Not because I lost a ton of weight. (I haven't...yet) Just because. I am looking around and seeing the many, many blessings before me and appreciating all the richness my life has. I am surrounded by wonderful students, many of whom I have had the pleasure of helping (and employing) the last 3-4 years, and now, they are getting ready to graduate and move on to the next phase of their lives --- some will find work, many more will go on to even more education - law school, med school, etc...and I know that I had a tiny little hand in helping to shape who they are, and I am very proud of the little part I shared. Very proud!
I see myself becoming more organized, and completing projects I started, not just leaving them incomplete. I am writing again, making jewelry, reading (love that David Sedaris!) and loving life.
I have woken up from my self induced depression and I am on the road to living whole again. It feels good to be me. I am back. :)

Your services are no longer needed. I've removed your belongings and ask that you leave quietly for the sake of all concerned. I know you (and the supermarket)were hopeful that our previous probationary arrangement would be amenable. However, your recent attempted attack left me with no choice, as you have violated the terms of our agreement.
Please know that I harbor no ill feelings towards you or other members of your family - cake, ice cream, fudge, however you are no longer welcome in my home.
I have taken precautions to shore up my defenses should you try to return. You would see that mango, blueberries and nectarines have replaced you.
I would hope that you would respect my wishes and spend your time elsewhere.
