Here's a few things I need you to remember, and I don't trust that you will remember them when you need them most so I am reminding you here.
1) You are not nearly as bad in any way as you think you are, sometimes.
2) You don't need an overhaul; you need some tweaks
3) There are good reasons why people love, and some even adore you.
4) It's just a pile of food. Beyond nourishment and fuel, it doesn't mean anything.
5) Food doesn't mend, fix or change. It is just something you eat (or wish you hadn't.
6) Today is just as good a day as tomorrow
7) Yes, yes you can do it.
8) Sometimes, good enough is good enough.
9) Your world is filled with many friends and friendly faces
10) You don't have all the answers, nor do you need to.
11) It's ok to ask for help.
12) It's ok to do things your own way.
13)You are worth a little elbow grease. Keep going.
14) Love yourself as you love your friends.
15) follow your heart. get some rest, and stop eating.
whew. that about sums it up.

The tan ones with the thick waistband! Yes, you are the winner of "Underwear" most likely to stay up! Woo the crowd goes wild.
Who lives like this? ..... I do. I'm guessing I am not the only one. I might be among the few doling out award ceremonies to her underwear drawer at 6am, but hey that's me. I've always had a creative mind, sometimes working for good. : )
Truth be told, I am in the beginnings of some positive momentum which brought me to blog this a.m. I am "experimenting" with not eating meat, and I think I am feeling better. I also am "experimenting" with doing other healthier things, like eating more organic foods, taking a multivitamin, and meeting with a health coach. (appt next week).
Experimenting has a way of trying things out without putting too much pressure on myself when I veer off the chosen path. It gives me an out, which is sometimes all I need for an escape valve for letting off steam, or for me, the pain that comes with perfectionism. (which of course is not a reality, but only smoke and mirrors.)
It's been fun to be back to ramble and digress with all of you, but now it is off to whole foods. I will catch up with you all soon, and I hope you are well, happy and healthy!

Good girls play nice, but not everyone does. I know sometimes folks don't do it intentionally, but it does not make it right. Sometimes, you need to push back a bit. And you know what? It is OKAY to do that.
With recent promotion comes staffing changes with staff that used to belong to someone else. People are not always so quick to let those pieces go. I know it can be hard. I know it can be rough. I am sensitive to that, but seriously, have a little savoir faire. I should have been included in the conversation before the colleague disseminated a coverage schedule without my knowledge aforethought.
Per my boss, I handled it right on. The good news is said colleague and I both report to him. It's over, but in the meantime I stood up for myself. It felt good to do that. and oh yeah, I walked up the big hill this morning.

Wendy, I am sorry, we are breaking up. You know the story, It is not you, it's me. Well, in this case, it really is you.
I was really hungry last night, so much so that I stopped for fast food, which long ago would have been a regular occurrence, but in the dawn of pink slime, not so much. So last night I stopped. I told myself I would only eat the "meat" and skip the buns. Nope, I inhaled everything, and I also did it while driving, so it was like I ate but have no recollection of it.
And then I felt sick.Blech. Bloated. Disgusting, headachy, and woke up at 3 this morning with a wicked leg/shin cramp. What the heck was that. I have not had severe muscle cramps in a while. Throw ina little msg, mix in some dehydration and who knows what pretending to be a food source and the next thing you know, it's I am not eating that again. So, Wendy it's over. It's not me. It's you. It's all you.
