Girl in the Mirror

Friday, May 07, 2010



Through an unfortunate turn of scheduling events, I find myself alone for the day in a beautiful bed and breakfast that was previously scheduled to be a romantic getaway attached to the weekend of my son's college graduation. My daughter's soccer tournament threw a wrench in our long weekend and we are split between the kids.


(Fairview Inn, Jackson MS, across the street from Millsaps College)
www.fairviewinn.com/

I have had the day to myself in a huge room with a ginormous bathroom...with lots of mirrors. I have a large bedroom at home, but it's different. I have lots of mirrors at home, but they are different. When I stood today in front of these unfamiliar mirrors, I was faced by an unfamiliar girl. I could see every extra pound, exactly where it was. It didn't look like me. I was shocked.

I downloaded some zumba videos because of a blog I read. I started doing them and they were fun. Then the email about the article on writing a vision statement came.

I'm pretty good about strategic planning for my business, my finances, my family, but not for myself.

I want to dance and not jiggle. I want to dance in the morning and dance at night. I want to spend hours outside instead of inside. I want to run when I am in a hurry when I feel like it and arrive without panting. I want to put on the first thing I see in the closet and know that I'll look great in it no matter what it is. I want to look in the mirror and see the girl that I am and have that be the same girl I think I am.

I'm making progress. I did a jig to my third zumba song today.

Now that I think about it, there is a lock on my office door and the zumba videos on youtube are only 4 minutes long...

We Need a Super Hero

Saturday, April 24, 2010

It's obvious who the villains are:

Fatman (AKA The Capered Crusader, The Dark Chocolate Knight)
Fatwoman (think of an overweight Pfeifer or Halle Berry with pointy ears)
The Nibbler (nibble me this, dieter)
The Choker (big grin)
Cravin'
Wonder what I ate Woman

(This is Fatman)


(This is Wonder what I ate Woman)


You get the drift. But I need the fat fighting superhero. The one that makes me want jumping jacks instead of flapjacks.

This super hero has to be a girl and has to be active.

I'm thinking along the lines of Fit Girl



Fighting fat and chopping vegetables, she has the skill and weapons for both.

She'll make fat free swiss out of your gouda intentions.

How Did the Hunter-Gatherers Survive before iPhones?

Sunday, April 11, 2010

I landed in Dayton, OH for a two day business trip, dropped off a package at the office I'll be visiting tomorrow, then scoped out the area around my hotel. I saw a large mall and several strip malls filled with all sorts of fast food, pub/grill type restaurants, and what appeared to be a plethora of sodium and calories.

I checked in my room and saw that I had a small fridge. I could go foraging for food for the next two days!

I took out my handy dandy iphone,


opened the map application and typed in "groceries".

And I found one of these


just two miles away.

I bought some of this


assorted fruits, veggies, lettuces, and some salad dressing..

With another search on my iphone, I found one of these...


...and bought one of these...


and asked for a knife and fork, a request to which the bakery attendant kindly obliged.

Thank you Apple iPhone for helping me hunt and gather my food for the next two days in this foreign land.

Where there's a will, there's a way.

    I love my iPhone too. Right now it's giving me fits though. It suddenly powdered down about 3 hours ago, even though it was fully charged before I left the house. It's been on the charger ever since I got back, but still isn't out of the red. Arrgghhh!!! Oh no, where will I go? How will I eat?

Like a Big, Frosted Cupcake

Sunday, April 04, 2010

-Drag queens could get a few tips from those aunts.
-Oh, my God. Look at me. I'm just covered!
-Like a big, frosted cupcake. -I know, it's like...
-Come on, help me with the veil
(from My Big Fat Greek Wedding)

I made cupcakes yesterday, big fancy frosted ones. And I licked the bowls. But if you check out my nutrition tracker, I counted it. I figured out what a cupcake was in batter land, and that's what I had.

Here I am ready to begin, butter and all...


I made two batches, banana, and dark chocolate. These are obviously the chocolate ones...


Then came the fun frosting part...



I'll let myself eat one after dinner, but honestly after all that work, I wouldn't care if I never touched buttercream icing again. I think there is a lesson in that, somewhere under all that frosting.

Happy Easter!

I'd WALK to get them just so I could burn the calories of it on the way there & back. :) Thanks for posting pictures! I wonder if I could make healthy cupcakes.....
