Between Here and There

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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

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

Yes, actually it was all in one night. And oddly enough, I was sitting on the couch. Along with better eating habits and motivational tips, I have received an even bigger gift from sparking and fellow sparkies. Last night I did something th... Read more
Morning Laugh

Working many hours this week and finding myself short on sleep, I decided that instead of going to the gym this morning, as I wanted to, weird though that may be, I would instead do some stretching, from the comfort of my own bed. On pract... Read more
Why I must go to the gym
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      8 comments

I am missing my happy buzz. I have not gone to the gym this week. Yes, I have been buried under piles of work and I have squeezed in walking time, but truth be told, walking around does not give me that same feeling of wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. ... Read more

We turned away lots of people, but they have another chance to get in tomorrow, and will still be a possibility on the day of the event. Anyway, evertyhing went fine and I kept my cool. Ha! We are still crazy busy, but everything went fine!... Read more
