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
WOO HOO FRIDAY
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
I lost 50 lbs last night
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
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.

Why I must go to the gym
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.

Events came and went
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
Choosing Not to be cranky
I'm feeling cranky. Not enough sleep. Working with an event that is going to bring a crowd, possibly two - won't be enough seats to go around. People will be snippy. I'm choosing not to be cranky, though it will take a little work. :)

People do stupid things. Don't take it personally.
That is what I am telling myself.
A student worker was s'posed to start last week. Told me she needed more time. OK. It puts me behind, but I give it to her. She emails me today to "in... Read more
Note to Self
When you have a moment (or moments) of weakness, get ready to make a u-turn. I felt like I was slipping away, and I did grab a lifeline.
When you think you can't - think again. You can. and if you really want to --- you REALLY Can.

This is when the going gets tough
The kids are back. School is back in session. I'm an administrator of sorts at a university. I work with kids. They are among the most brilliant and coolest kids I could ask for. Love them,...but they do take a lot of work. Some are geniuses, tr... Read more
It took me 9 years to get here. I went on a news blackout today.
A few days ago as the Anniversary of 9-11 was approaching, I realized I didn't have to feel bad about it anymore. Two of my friends (plus thousands of others) died that wee... Read more
I lifted yesterday - specifically on machines for chest press, shoulder press, upright row, and thing for your delts. I don't know the name - I think it is something "fly". Ok 15 mins of strength training. It was good. It gave me a happy buzz wh... Read more
I'm OK, You're OK
Sure, I read the book. I think it was required reading in Psych 101. Realizations are coming fast and furious lately and I think a good bit of it has to do with me getting active, really active again. I am on a roll and through my activity, I am... Read more
As a matter of fact, I am a tall girl - 6 feet. For yrs I called myself 5 eleven and three quarters, because I was embarrassed to be 6ft. I'm over that, and walking taller every day.
I realized this yesterday when I was leaving work. I was ... Read more
Start of Something New
Hoorah! I first woke up when hubby was getting ready for work. I rolled over and took another 20 mins. Not full on sleep, but just resting and rolling under the covers and doing a little praying.
I got up and left for the gym. Biked 30 mins... Read more
