And the Award Goes To....

Saturday, June 08, 2013

The tan ones with the thick waistband! Yes, you are the winner of "Underwear" most likely to stay up! Woo the crowd goes wild.

Who lives like this? ..... I do. I'm guessing I am not the only one. I might be among the few doling out award ceremonies to her underwear drawer at 6am, but hey that's me. I've always had a creative mind, sometimes working for good. : )

Truth be told, I am in the beginnings of some positive momentum which brought me to blog this a.m. I am "experimenting" with not eating meat, and I think I am feeling better. I also am "experimenting" with doing other healthier things, like eating more organic foods, taking a multivitamin, and meeting with a health coach. (appt next week).

Experimenting has a way of trying things out without putting too much pressure on myself when I veer off the chosen path. It gives me an out, which is sometimes all I need for an escape valve for letting off steam, or for me, the pain that comes with perfectionism. (which of course is not a reality, but only smoke and mirrors.)

It's been fun to be back to ramble and digress with all of you, but now it is off to whole foods. I will catch up with you all soon, and I hope you are well, happy and healthy!

    Sounds like you are doing awesome! I am so happy for you. I can't wait to hear how your foray into meatlessness and healthy coaching goes. You are a very special lady and deserve to experiment with things until you feel AWESOME!!!

    That is a very mind clearing state of mind -- I like it! All sorts of doors will open for you, then ... the world's your oyster:)
    And I do get a kick out of your sense of humour, hehheh.
    Take those prize winning undies and tackle the world!

    The saying "nobody's perfect" is truer than most of us let ourselves realize, Mick--but the main thing is, though we may take side-trips now and then, we still get back on track. I've been on the injured list for the past month (really bad fall, ended up--temporarily--with a cane), but I'm back at work and back in my gym clothes, and like you, I am coming up with a new plan of attack. Nothing works for everybody . . . we have to experiment with things we think will do it for us. Best of luck on your latest adventure, and thanks for caring enough to shake my tree now and again! ;-)

    I have to look for jeans that are most likely to stay up. They always fit perfectly when I put them on in the morning, but after an hour or two I better have a belt with me, wherever I'm at! Nice job with the healthy changes you are making!

    I'm with you on the perfectionism thing: it takes a certain twist of mind to leave "Polly Perfectionist" (as I call that part of my personality) on the curb. But when I do? I'm free to TRY things. Apparently you're a kindred spirit in that regard.

    Here's to your latest experiment! Spark on. emoticon

    We're all an experiment of one. I hope your current changes make you feel fantastic!

    Love your sunflowers! AND your imagination!
    More protein AND more veggies works for me. But lately bad weather and seductive social events have been pulling me off track. Retirement is less than 2 months away! emoticon

    That is an excellent way to look at changes.. Experiments... That is truly how inventions and evolements come about I think. You are working hard at changing how well you take care of your own well being.

    For me it's high protein midrange fat and low carbs that gets the fat off. Hope you find your ideal plan.

    emoticon I completely feel you. I have been "experimenting" with eating more protein. So far no change but I'll hang in there for a bit longer...
