When you believe it in your heart, you can conquer the fear.
When you step forward with authority, you are making it happen.
When you keep moving toward your goal, you build momentum.
When you trip over an obstacle, you can get up and keep going.
When you keep going, you prove to yourself that you are worth the effort.
When you know you cannot fail, you find a way.

By all accounts, I am a happy, cheery person,...but don't tick me off.
One of my colleagues did something stupid today, and I called him on it. I did not add to the problem. I just called up and expressed my irritation and told him it was inappropriate. He legitimately seemed surprised, but it was still stupid. Arrgh! I didn't say "that was stupid." I did say it was "inappropriate." Oy.
My boss was very satisfied that I called the colleague on it. That helped. Said colleague made it a bit worse by try to resolve another issue by telling me I could go find the information myself, not snippily, but saying that I could go look for it any time I wanted. Uh, no, it's part of your job to tell me, bucko. Again, I did not say it like that. I expressed it in a polite way by reminding him that it is his group's responsibility to share that information with me, "face forward."
He apologized for making me mad. I said I was not mad. I was not happy with what happened, but I'm not mad at him. I want him to ask me in advance next time instead of doing something questionable, but I'm going to guess we'll be having this conversation again. Perhaps this little co-worker to co-worker chat did nothing but make me feel better, but that is good enough. I spoke up for myself, and I feel good about it.
Here's to a day of expressing yourself, including your right to vote!
Have a happy day, sparkies!

SUPER stoked. I cooked several meals to have throughout the week. I made 2 sparkrecipes (or close facsimiles of them) and a chicken stir fry. I am finishing up my second load of laundry, cleaned the house a bit, and took a nice long nap today.
It feels good to be productive, but especially good that I cooked and planned ahead and made an effort on my own behalf. DELIGHTFUL!
I am feeling organized and on top of things. I hope to carry this feeling along with me tomorrow to work. :)
My cold has finally left. I have an occasional cough, but I am back to normal.
It's the last week of my Fall BL challenge with the sapphires. I did not kill it success wise, but actually I did make a lot of progress throughout. I am in a much better space now than ever before. I've put the power right back in my hands, where it belongs. It feels good to be guiding my own ship.
Happy Halloween to all! Welcome November! Fresh start!!!

Not the best of weeks; not the worst.
Got sick, still fighting the edge of this cold, but making better choices. NOt stellar choices, but better choices. PROGRESS!
My cardio has gone to hell in a handbasket. I walk, but barely at all this week. A bit of activity causes coughing. So I am giving my body a chance to recoup and then I will return to the whee.
I've got to get my booty back to the strength training. I should pick up resistance bands so I can do this at home.
My goal for the next hour is to create meals and a shopping list.
I'll do some cleaning today and get myself together. :)
All in all, things are fine. I just know my body appreciates being at a lower weight to make everything run more smoothly together. I am tired off chub rub, cast off clothing, and being the fat girl.
I am ready for my inner glory to shine. I'm loopy, lots of laughs, and compassionate. Many times it is hiding under all of the fat. Blech! I am tired of it. It's my life and I am not going to settle for the bottom rung anymore.
I deserve all of the goodness that I can muster. Now let's go muster!!!
