Looking Forward...No Turning Back!

Sunday, November 27, 2011

Zooming down the bouvelard with sunshades.
Roof down...wind blowing through each strand of my hair.
Cameras flashing while the people scream, "Success!"

Yeah, that's my name!
I have the vision of nothing but success as long as I am steadfast and consistent.
Won't you come join me? There's plenty of room at the top. I'll save you a seat. Even better, I'll let you ride shotgun.

Just remember, we're looking forward. No turning back, only left or right.
What's your vision of success today?

Too Much...Too Soon!

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Ate myself and drank myself into oblivion...

Yes, it was a Happy Thanksgiving.
Ain't gone lie!

This full feeling is misery to the highest extent.
I actually liked this feeling at one point in my life. Now it's just plain pathetic.

Gonna get cardio and ST in the wee hours on the morning...
I have got to work off this sin. Yes, it must be sinful...

Smoked turkey...not bad
Sweet potatoes...not bad
Corn with chives...not bad
Mixed collards & mustards...not bad
Deviled eggs... Ha! The name speaks for itself.
Mac & be the judge!
Sweet potato pie...thin slice - compromise
Sock-it-to-me cake...thin slice, yet the sinful!
Moscato (1glass)...hmmm! I'm dealing with family issues...youngest brother...umph!

So if I am doomed to damnation, I know I'll see some of my friends there.
I can live with that- or not!
So fellow sparkers I hope to see you"spiritually" jogging beside me tomorrow morning.
I'll be the one sweating and cursing obscenities of former mischief under my breath.
Yes, I ate too much too soon to stay on track as a recent "maintainer" & success will be mine again!

Ya girl is gone git her sh*t together N-O-W!

    I, too, used to "enjoy" that feeling of fullness. Now, not at all. I prefer healthy, reasonable portions.

Accountability-It Is What It Is...

Monday, November 14, 2011

Today was the day to assure I stay on track.
Sat myself down and said,"Look here Missy, you are gone have to get yo self straight".
(Y'all know how this Southern accent thing works)
"Either ya gonna git it right or be left (behind that is)"
Yes, that's what keeps following me when I pass a mirror...go figure!

So I have tracked my food...every bite I might add
I have had my 8 glasses of water. We teachers usually don't get this "luxury".
I have huddled with 5 of my teams.
Now I am about to journey into the world of grading journals...WooHoo! Don't be alarmed. It's total sarcasm here...Whew! Had you scared for a second there,huh?

I am assuring ACCOUNTABILITY. Just love the buzz word we educators &
administrators keep using this year...makes us all sound so educated and concerned.

Now that I have my chest poked out with pride, I can say emoticon and mean it.
To everything else at this point, it is what it is.

My Birthday...Turning 40!

Tuesday, November 08, 2011

So I thought that I might feel this overwhelming urge to do something fun today.
Okay, I started celebrating Friday.

It may sound cheesy, but I think birthdays are special.
It's a day when you reflect on being blessed to see another year. It marks a milestone from where you WERE to where you ARE now.

Friday night- Relaxed with a glass of wine... emoticon
Saturday- Out to dinner with the hubby. What a sweetie!
Sunday- Celebrated MIL's b-day. Fried seafood for her and the family. Enjoyed!
Monday- Shopped for myself. Did NOT stay late @ work...waited by the time clock actually...wait for it...wait for it! Quitting time!!! emoticon

Tuesday- Husband surprised me by placing a large vase of assorted colored roses with baloons, card, and mini-cupcakes on my desk. LOVE BABY!!!
After school today, we have a faculty meeting. After that, brief dept chairs/ team leader meeting...then..."BOOGIE FEVER! Gotta BOOGIE DOWN...Boogie Fever. I think it's goin' around!"

sound familiar? If not, you're too young. Just kidding... emoticon

As I end this blog, remember to enjoy each day as if it were your last because tomorrow is not promised. Today, my biggest emoticon is life itself!
I have been given another day to get it right.

Make it a great day or not, the choice is YOURS!

Staying the course...Seeing it through.

Sunday, November 06, 2011

Deep breaths.
Eyes widened in disbelief as I look behind me.
The distance from starting point to where I stand is astronomical.
Now I stand at a crossroads deciding the next step before another plateau.
I'd better step it up or stand(stagnant). Since I know my fate is in my hands. I decide to rethink my goals, stay the course, and see it through.

1. Drink the 6/8 required glasses of water.
( Anymore would be a pissy shame. Don't judge. I teach.)
2. Do 4 days of ST - new exercises I've never tried. (Will look that up in the morning)
Tuesday,Thursday, Saturday, Sunday(modified- not as much)
3. Stay w/in daily caloric range with wise choices.

That's enough to begin with. As I master these goals, I'll gladly add more. Baby steps...
