Commitment to change
Still plodding along on my journey and enjoying the trip.
One thing I've been thinking about the past few days is change and commitment. I've identified changes that I need to make, but am I willing to do the work? I get frustrated when I ... Read more
I've noticed I have all sorts of good intentions and ideas of things to do, but for some reason, I can't turn them into actions. I know everyone encounters hurdles along the way, but I sometimes think brick walls pop up that need to be taken do... Read more
There are two components to acceptance that I've been pondering a lot the past few days. The first comes from Alcoholics Anonymous and the second from a book on Cherokee medicine that I've started reading. Well, after reading over both of them... Read more
Another short one...long day of work 1 of 3. I am grateful to have work and a job I enjoy with people I enjoy to work with!
Today's motivational pic and another thing to ponder:
To thine own self be true! Let your true colors show. ... Read more
Day 6: points to ponder
Just some stuff I'm pondering...
-- my inner critics: what are they saying? What purpose are they serving? What's an appropriate rebuttal?
-- what motivates me? What is my passion? What long term goals do I have and am I working towards them... Read more
I so enjoy having Mondays off! (but then again, it's only after having been first call all weekend)
After staying up all night, I decided after about half a cup of coffee that I'd just go back to sleep until 9 or 930. Good idea. 3 hours j... Read more
I'm a rambling wreck from Georgia Tech.... Still enjoying that GT is 4-0 and Georgia is 2-2. Honestly, I really don't give a patooty about football. I'm just grateful for having the opportunity to go to Georgia Tech and graduate from there. ... Read more
9/22/11: Day 1
Yay!!!! I made it a day without temptation from sugar and artificial sweeteners. I'm also realizing that I need to work on reducing my carb intake in general. Love me some bread!
Took the latest batch of eggplant and tomatoes from the gar... Read more
Okay, just because someone else says the lemon cake with raspberry in the middle is REALLY good, doesn't mean I have to try it. I don't care how much I love lemon flavored stuff. Of course, that led to the strawberry cream cheese wrapped in fl... Read more
9/20/11: Day 0, again
Okay. No more sugar, no more sweets. I did fine for 63 days then kinda got on that slippery slope. No cravings, no problems. I let the stuff trickle back in the past couple weeks and it's got me feeling squirrelly again. I start feeling suga... Read more
Time to regroup
I've been struggling a bit as of late. I haven't been exercising regularly. A milkshake here, a soda there, burger and fries a couple times. No fast food, but still just as greasy. It could be the start of a slippery slope. Sinus infection. Al... Read more
Experiment eating out...follow-up
Well, after having gone just over 2 months without sugar and then having the yummy real strawberry milkshake on Friday, I've had a headache ever since.
A short one... I'm tired. Actually got a full 11 hours in at work today. Sleepy time! ... Read more
Analogies and symbolism
I met up with a friend of mine for coffee this afternoon. Her therapist is having her work on her "roots" -- they use a tree analogy a lot; friends are branches that get severed, tap roots, etc. It got me thinking about what all makes us... Read more
Experiment eating out.
I tried an experiment tonight... Went downtown to a local burger joint (not fast food or chain). I managed to only slightly exceed my calories for the day with a cheese burger, fries, strawberry shake. I was aware of how I was feeling when I or... Read more

I've just got a short one for today. A dear friend was telling me about a prayer group he belongs to and asked if there was anything I'd like for them to include. I've been reflecting back on world events, including the events of Sept 11, 2001 ... Read more
