The Little Green Man

Wednesday, October 07, 2009

I don't know how many of you were Northern Exposure fans, but, the character of Ed had a green man who was his inner critic. This is who I picture in my head when the evil criticisms creep in. That man has come out of the hole I shoved him in to speak harshly to me again, and again, and again. Ever since last nights weigh-in. He is such a jerk! I am exposing him here because I have learned that the only way to shove him back in the hole is by outing him and his un-truths! ( I learned that in therapy years ago, because no matter how much I want him to pack his bags and leave permanently...we all have an inner critic that we must learn to deal with).

One pound lost IS a great thing! One pound lost is added to the other 2 to make 3 pounds LOST (not gained). There is NO food I "shouldn't" have eaten. There is no food I "should" have eaten instead. There is no exercise I "should" have done more or harder. I did what I did, I ate what I ate AND I feel GOOD about it. I am a good person no matter what my weight/ size/ shape! I am a fantastic person no matter my weight/size/shape! I will keep doing my BEST each and everyday!!!

Now take that Little Green Man! And go Away!

    Like you said it's not a gain. Be proud of that! And little by little you will see a difference!

    Heck, even maintaining means you didn't gain! Kick that little green man back into his hole and tell him to kiss it.

Ode to a Nose

Tuesday, October 06, 2009

*trying to love one body part at a time til I love my whole body*

Ode to my Nose

Proboscis of Olfactory "How I love thee"
With you I can smell
With you I can taste better
With you my glasses stay upon my face
With you I am "cute"
Proboscis of Olfactory "How I do Love Thee!"

One step, one part at a time. I will at least appreciate my body.

A-Mazing weekend!

Sunday, October 04, 2009

I went to the Holly Spears concert Friday! It was a total blast. I got to see people I haven't seen in a long time. And, I got to buy Holly's CD. I can't wait to put the songs on my ipod and rock out and worship God with her words. I spent Sat and most of Sunday with my BF. Yeah! We went hiking. Then, Sunday night, I picked up my girl from her Dad and we went to a benefit at our church. Our sister church from Mamelodi, South Africa was putting on a benefit for their Hospice and they have the most amazing choir! We rocked out and worshiped to some serious African music! My daughter and I danced and clapped til our feet and hands were sore. God does awesome work and makes some awesome connections!

On Go

Thursday, October 01, 2009

I've been on go all day today. On top of my normal watching kids, I also cleaned a house and had to do the 2 bus stop pick-ups that my daughter normally does for me. I have not sat still all day. I'm currently waiting for my Mom to bring my daughter back from bowling for the second time, because she left her water bottle there. Thank God for Moms! When they get back, I'm leaving to spend time with my boy friend, who has been very upset that we haven't seen each other in nearly a week. Men. {I am a little flattered that he misses me}

I guess this really is just a typical day in my life. I really do love what I do. I really do feel quite blessed to have such loving and caring family and friends.

Ps. I just got a bonus from the Mom who's house I cleaned! Life is good!
