Friends

Saturday, August 05, 2006

"Friends are precious, not just in the sunshine of life, but especially in the shade".
My goal this year was to drop my "toxic" friends and make new ones that share my interests in a healthy, happy life. So far, I've accomplished that goal but it's been hard. I have some friends that have been around since Elementary school. But I just don't know what to say to them. I've matured, at least I'd like to think so, and they're at the bar til closing time. Smoking. Drinking. Things I either never understood or have stopped understanding now that I'm a Mother. So now I don't talk to my "best" friend from Elementary school. There's another that I rarely talk to but still remain close aquaintances with. I admit, I'm saddened by the loss. OTOH, I cannot endure the negativity that either of these women exude when they are around me.
Now I have made some good friends. Men & women I can count on. Turn to. It feels great. :o) I hope they realize how much their friendship means to me.

I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

Proactive Penny

Monday, July 17, 2006

So this week I bought a schwack of fresh fruit and some fresh vegetables, too. When I brought them home I divided them up into portions and stuffed them in snack sized ziploc bags. Now all I have to do is grab them from the bottom of the fridge.
I also bought myself a scale today. so far, I've only used it to divide my sweetpotato fries into single servings but I think it's going to be a real eye-opener where portions are concerned.
Hoping to do some aquafit on Tuesday and Thursday and a run on Wednesday. Other than that... it's rest, work and get ready for next week's vacation. WOOHOO!
