My anxiety had swelled to irrational proportions

Tuesday, March 13, 2012      7 comments

Whenever I thought about riding a public bus I'd become anxious and in the end my anxiety had swelled to irrational proportions. Yesterday I squashed that fear and jumped on the O line into San Francisco. At least now I can take the transbay b... Read more

She loved me for who I am, not for who she wanted me to be

Thursday, March 08, 2012      13 comments

Of late I've had to deal with people behaving badly. In short order I stood up to a bully at the gym as I watched everyone else shrink into the shadows. I helped a new found friend only to have felt used in the end when they decided secrets we... Read more

A tootsie roll

Monday, March 05, 2012      8 comments

It's no secret, I had a harsh Saturday. Without going into all the gritty details I'll go into the moments of desperation instead. Anticipating, then receiving devastating news is harsh. That's what happened on Saturday afternoon. The Mr... Read more

I've modified my eating and my workout schedule, again. I've decided to eat a higher protein diet, cut back on sodium and sugar. My body is feeling better. Yesterday however, I lost the war against chocolate. A combination of things co... Read more

Dressing Me - I'm a plus sized super model, if only in my own head

Monday, February 06, 2012      5 comments

I'm going into my *GASP* fourth year on this magical plateau and I have learned a lot about me. I'd like to tell myself and the world that I'm okay with the weight I'm at but you know what - I AM NOT. I'm not okay with it. And, it's not JUST ... Read more

Not Good Enough

Thursday, February 02, 2012      5 comments

Yesterday was a rough day for me - from beginning to the end. It seemed all day I was batting away negative trying to replace it with positive. In the end it was exhausting. With a slight head throb I left the office for the gym. As I ... Read more

Playing Dress-up

Tuesday, January 24, 2012      5 comments

Last week, after a day of feeling and looking frumpy I ripped through my closet with lighting speed dumping on the floor any piece of clothing that didn't feel right and/or look good. I equally attacked my collection of shoes. I was DONE feelin... Read more

Monday, January 16, 2012      1 comments

This morning I grabbed a pair of dress pants for work, slid them on and then looked in the mirror. What I saw in the mirror made me instantly grumpy. I took them off, threw them down and stomped on them. TAKE THAT! In three years I've lo... Read more

Yoga and Cupcakes

Thursday, January 12, 2012      2 comments

This was my post on FB on Wednesday Morning: I love how yoga calms your mind, *gently* stretches your muscles and even challenges you in the moment. Then you wake up the next morning only to realize what it was really doing . . . silently kick... Read more

Letting Go

Tuesday, January 10, 2012      10 comments

I've let go! A friend of mine who is morbidly obese has made noise for over a year about "getting healthy" and finding her groove with working out. I support her and I worry about her health conditions. Her body is literally breaking down und... Read more

Blinding White Pain

Tuesday, January 10, 2012      3 comments

Setting a goal to log 18,000 fitness was HUGE and it leaves little wiggle room for injury, laziness and any other bump in the road that might come along. Ya, I didn't factor that in when I set this one up but there are no take backs so I'm push... Read more
