Don't Make me Angry, Mr. McGee

Tuesday, November 02, 2010      9 comments

By all accounts, I am a happy, cheery person,...but don't tick me off. One of my colleagues did something stupid today, and I called him on it. I did not add to the problem. I just called up and expressed my irritation and told him it was ... Read more

Under My Own Power

Sunday, October 31, 2010      7 comments

SUPER stoked. I cooked several meals to have throughout the week. I made 2 sparkrecipes (or close facsimiles of them) and a chicken stir fry. I am finishing up my second load of laundry, cleaned the house a bit, and took a nice long nap today. ... Read more

I got Ma'am-ed

Wednesday, October 27, 2010      16 comments

I've been so self focused the last few days that I have not been sparking - at least not in my usual way of writing notes, huddling, blogging and sending goodies. I have not veered off track, I've just been trying to recoup from a cold or pos... Read more

Staying on Track

Saturday, October 23, 2010      11 comments

Not the best of weeks; not the worst. Got sick, still fighting the edge of this cold, but making better choices. NOt stellar choices, but better choices. PROGRESS! My cardio has gone to hell in a handbasket. I walk, but barely at all t... Read more

Between Here and There

Wednesday, October 13, 2010      13 comments

I mentally lost 10 lbs of weight this morning for every step I took up the hill. I stopped at 199. I thought back to times in my life when I hit some of those lower milestones and reflected on what it took from me to get there. 1. Patience.... Read more

The Three Bears

Tuesday, October 12, 2010      8 comments

If I were to make things "just right" for me ( a la The Three Bears), what would they be? I would wake up happy and refreshed. I would wake up with enough time to get things done without rushing around like a madman. I'd have my ... Read more

Happy Columbus Day

Monday, October 11, 2010      8 comments

Woot Phillies are moving on. That is good. The sleep deprivation not so good. ha. This morning, I have a staff meeting to attend which will resemble more of a retreat atmosphere. I hope to get something out of it. It is a "generational" class... Read more

In my Heyday

Friday, October 08, 2010      18 comments

While driving to work this morning, I was thinking about how times have changed for me. Even though I have not yet lost a bundle of weight (but I will), my habits have become so much healthier. I stopped at Wawa (a convenience store) for g... Read more

It's Not About the Bike

Thursday, October 07, 2010      16 comments

We bought a Harley this year, fulfilling my husband's dream. I met my goal of getting on the back of the bike --- which to most, would probably not be a big thing, but to me, it was a hurdle. It comes with instructions. Step on foot peg, l... Read more

The Best 3 seconds of my day

Tuesday, October 05, 2010      23 comments

It happened around 7:30pm tonight. I was walking to my car at work. I walked up the stairs (a set of 5 steps) like a NORMAL person. I did not hold onto the railing to hoist myself up. I climbed up, leaned forward a bit and did not feel anything ... Read more

Banishing the P word

Tuesday, October 05, 2010      14 comments

My frequent quest for perfection has gotten me into trouble more than once. Initially, it sounds like a lofty goal, but in actuality (for me), it's a death sentence as I have a tendency to wait until everything is perfectly aligned before I take... Read more

It Doesn't Just Happen

Friday, October 01, 2010      23 comments

You make it happen. Change doesn't just show up suddenly one day and say hey - I think you have been waiting for me. Nope. Change happens when you make it happen. It's all about me, baby. And I am gonna make it happen. ... Read more

Now What?

Tuesday, September 28, 2010      12 comments

I found an old WW weigh-in booklet and realized my losing streak is in nearly the same spot now. I am eating much healthier than I have in the past --- but I still need a major overhaul and a drill sergeant to get me to exercise. What will it ta... Read more

5 mile yard sale

Monday, September 27, 2010      7 comments

The hot and spicy food fest was a bit of a bust. It took under 2 hours to get there so it was not a complete waste of time. We did buy some smokin' hot "ghost" pepper stuff that would burn a hole in the roof of normal people. Hubby Rick does not... Read more

WOO HOO FRIDAY

Friday, September 24, 2010      8 comments

Love what a great day I had. Set up a few errands - bank, post office and library in one walking trip and had to be back at 9:30 to train a new student hire. I got my stuff done, had a delightful experience with the post office dude...he s... Read more
