I was truly tired going to bed last night. It wasn't even 10pm, and I was already in there. I remember wanting to eat, but deciding to go lay down instead and this thought popped into my head. What if? What if, I had absolutely no ang... Read more

I can't lift my arms too well. There you have it. I have been playing wii baseball for 2 days and I am still feeling it. Ha! I am becoming mildly addicted to hitting the ball out of the park - 4 home runs is my record. I am digging it ... Read more

My boss dropped by my office for a late lunch break. He invited me for pizza. I went but just had a diet snapple. We talked about how that guy IS getting the job and how I should "let it go" ha ha. Yeah, I will be all right - not happy about it ... Read more

I really should have been paying more attention. I backed into a car this morning. Luckily I was going very slowly and when I heard the crunch, I stopped and moved forward. I really thought I ran over something. It would have been nice to do a r... Read more
Forgiveness is a Funny Thing
Monday, February 28, 2011      17 comments

Sometimes, it's nowhere to be found. I waited 29 years to drop the weight...the burden of the shame I carried for so long, and I would not forgive my tormentors who were just plain mean to me. I know it's 29 years because I did the math. F... Read more

The Ivy League Heptagonal Championships are in NY this weekend, and it got me to thinking. Why can't "I" be a track star? Well, truth of the matter is, I can't can't be. Dig those double negatives? I can be a track star. I just have to get... Read more

Dear Self, I know it's funny how I act that you are the last to know, but obviously you are the first to get the news. I'm coming clean that I have not been as committed to you as I desire, and I've let others get in the way of me taking ca... Read more

Um, before you try out the new concoction in the blender, maybe you should bite the bullet and taste the soymilk first. I made a lovely smoothie this morning, with blueberries, frozen banana and flaxseeds with soymilk, and then when I tasted it,... Read more

I did it. I ate breakfast. I had a healthy lunch. I did not snack on candy. I drank my water. I went for a walk (in the sunshine). When I was tempted, I prayed. I am bouyed up by all of the inspirational tales I read on SP this ... Read more

Wednesday, January 26, 2011      16 comments

My commute this morning was sucky. Predicted snowfall began 12 hours early, surprising even the weather channel! Ha! Accidents all over the place, and one in particular which slowed down the first half of my drive to about 2.5 mph over the cours... Read more
