Trusting and Committing

Friday, July 24, 2015      4 comments

I'm making working out the centerpiece of my life. I am starting to build that feeling of "getting" to do these workouts - rather than a must or a chore. I have about 4 months worth of sessions that are already paid for. It is beginning to be ex... Read more

No Excuses for Leg Day

Thursday, July 23, 2015      2 comments

I woke up, rolled over and thought I would really love to get some more zzz's, though the time was coming for me to shake a leg and get to the gym. It would have been so easy for me to text my trainer and tell him I wouldn't be there. I wanted t... Read more

Responsible Ownership

Tuesday, July 21, 2015      7 comments

When my car sprang a leak last week, it was easy to see what went awry once the initial shock wore off. I wasn't expecting rain to come pouring in through my roof. No, the sunroof was not open, but my car is apparently not as airtight as I would... Read more

Here We Go

Friday, July 17, 2015      8 comments

I am undergoing a re-birth. I've gone from having upheaval in my life, to embracing the uncertainty --- and though, it is not a feeling I enjoy, I am pushing off the unknown and trying for it to wait to unfold instead of relentlessly pursuing i... Read more

Who Needs Motivation?

Tuesday, July 07, 2015      8 comments

Motivation is something I used to think I needed, in abundance. I am getting over that thought now and replacing my desire for motivation with a strength of purpose, and commitment. Motivation is a lot like a fly by night friend, someone who dro... Read more

I Got a Feeling

Monday, July 06, 2015      11 comments

Hurrah! I felt great tonight at the gym. It kicked in about 5 minutes into my routine, when I hit the high note and it continued throughout. Happy thoughts swam in my head. I am made to work out. Yes, I can do this. I can and ... Read more

Getting going again

I'm heading to the gym tonight for the first time in a couple of weeks. I was waylaid a bit with a variety of things, but I have a 7:30pm meet-up tonight which I am keeping. I started the day out with a healthy breakfast of fresh fruit - b... Read more

Beyond the Year of Living Dangerously

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      5 comments

I am just getting over a sickness that lasted two weeks or so which included a bevy of things not designed to keep me well --- from a persistent and nagging cough, probable kidney stone pain, separation anxiety from my coach, and a major deadli... Read more

Rolling out of the fog

Wednesday, June 24, 2015      8 comments

This has been an interesting couple of days where I have been feeling both highs and lows. I am proud of myself though, for hanging in there, and coming out of what feels like a fog. I talked to my counselor (shrink) yesterday, and my heal... Read more

Slow Progress is Still Progress

Thursday, June 18, 2015      6 comments

Even when my mind may be all systems go - it does not necessarily mean the rest of me is following suit. It has been a week with a little bit of struggling - not isolated to any one particular area - all areas, but it is okay because I may only ... Read more

Out of the Closet (Food Closet)

Saturday, June 13, 2015      10 comments

The Food closet, that is. for so many years, have been a behind the scenes person, and that usually included my food intake. Whether, I would eat solo, late at night, or just out of sight, people frequently had no idea what I was eating --- nei... Read more
