CHANGE IS THE NAME OF THE GAME

Friday, April 04, 2014



Change is the name of the game. You may think that you're standing still, but what planet are you standing on?!

Scientist claim that even one thought can make giant changes. The power of the thought is colossal!

It was the moment your thought pivoted around a challenge. That is when the experiment began.



Life is this adventure to discover what works best FOR YOU.

Not huge leaps and bounds that are non-sustainable, but positive thoughts and small tweaks.

I lost 150 lbs. in one year and regained it all.

I've lost 40 lbs. over two years and am still losing.

This is grace.

Nothin' Changed, Just Everything!

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Hi! I'm back! And thank god, all the numbers stayed pretty much the same.
Nevertheless, there is a lot of work to do and little time to do it!



Jaidyn is now 9 months old and just on the cusp of walking. Still no words, but lots of babbling, and lots of wonder!



Kids gonna have to throw some clothes on. It's Fall here in Colorado with evenings in the 50's and daytimes in the 70-80's. The floods are over, but our county (next to Boudler) lost 1500 homes.

Gotta try to drop all my weight and resculp my body in one month. My ex-husband is due in town. Jason & Ltndi are getting married for real this time, they tell me.



Anyway, I'm under-excited to see my X since we blew a lot of money on lawyers to fight for our son's custody. One time, he even played nasty and had me served while I was teaching. And he still resents that I asked for $100/month of child support when he wasn't working.

Enough. K.C. passed away. Ian and I were broken hearted. Actually, poor K.C. wouldn't die. His spirit was so much stronger than the body decaying around him. He was still trying to drag his paralyzed limbs to follow Ian; he didn't want his boy out of his sight. So first the first time ever, we gave him relief, K.C.'s ashes and paw print are on the altar.

As for me, I am crocheting and knitting up a storm.


I'm crocheting Majic Covers for Ian and knitting a prayer shawl for my sister, Judy who just came home after a brain hemorage. (And I can't talk about that, except to say we almost lost her.)

See what you missed? ...NOT.



Well, I missed you.

    Happy you back with us, as we have missed you. Sorry about your loss I lost my best furry friend (dog) on Christmas eve and am still heart broken.
You have a lot on your plate right now, so stay focused on your goals and give lots of hugs to the little one in your life.
Best wishes, Sandy

Remember: We Don't Age, We Morph!

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Happy Spring!



... at least between snowstorms in Colorado.



THAT ordinance has passed,
not that I'm running out to find a store.



I've got a Rocky Mountain High and dark sunglasses.

And I've got one precious grand daughter!



Yep! I've dropped 32 lbs. in less than a year (2012). When I get braver, I'll post a full-length photo.



Slow and steady wins the game! ... so stop feeling disgusted in yourself so you have a great reason to quit!



Jaidyn says, you are worth it!

YOU'RE TOO LEGIT TO QUIT! (sorry)



...and somehow, K.C. cat still walks the earth. And if he can cling to life so well, so can you!



Remember, we don't age; we morph!!



HAPPY SPRING!

    Maryland legislature just passed medical marijuana. Let's see if O'Malley does the right thing. His choices seem to be (a) sign the bill (b) run for president in 2016.

And a President O'Malley is emphatically *not* the right thing.
