Ten Minutes to Freedom
It started with just an afterthought. I felt good-- lighter and happier -- after I did the Wii in the evenings before I went to bed. It didn't take much to get my heart rate up and get that happy (yes, I am moving around) feeling to jump start ... Read more
The Story of How I Grew Up
I am making choices one at a time.
Last night DH asked me if I wanted the pumpkin muffins. I had bought these for him a few days ago, and while he was initially excited to have them, it turns out he ate one and had a container with 3 remain... Read more
Seeing is believing.
Whether it is the number on the scale or the ability to actually get out of the car without calling for help, it is nice to see an improvement. I am really trying. I notice a turnaround in my attitude where I actually ... Read more
I am Improving
Look at me go! That's what I want to shout in the mirror!
The couch potato is turning into a wii monster (again).
I am craving tennis, bowling and baseball, especially baseball.
I re-tested my wii fitness age tonight, and it's 2... Read more
Behind the Wheel
I've told you before, and I am saying it again.
I am driving the bus.
I am responsible for every action, inaction, choice, consequence and responsibility that affects me. Sure things happen outside of my control, but how it affects me... Read more
I Remember You
I walked intervals.
I walked in the dark. (I'd see bats flying overhead.)
I walked in the early morning light. (so early in fact, that I once almost kicked a skunk). (looking down at the last second was a pretty lucky break).
I wa... Read more
Life Goes On
The fact of the matter is whether you do it, or you don't, life goes on. Time marches on without a thought as to whether you are living your life to the fullest and to your greatest potential. Time does not sit and wait for you to put your shoes... Read more
Driving the Bus
Another day tucked under my belt of good eating, no candy and more activity. I am envisioning myself in a better, bright light. I saw someone in the supermarket today who was a fit woman and she was nimbly zipping here and there. I was zipping i... Read more
Tales from the Bright Side
It's happening. My little avalanche is working its way down hill building momentum. I crossed my second day of not dipping into the candy jar. Now that I have a little distance between me and those wrappers, I just want to keep it going.
I... Read more
Good morning, sparkies!
I'm continuing my happy dance and celebrations today. Woo hoo! Won't you whoop it up with me?
I got up at 4:30am (not intentionally, but I was awake, so I figured what the heck) and convinced myself I should wo... Read more
I promised myself I would celebrate my progress, so I am!
The stereotype is that men are bad patients. Well, so am I.
I want to be better immediately yet I catch myself in need of an attitude adjustment if I wish to make that so.
True, I am only human and it helps to remember that I am actin... Read more
I don't have much to say today except for a thought I have been noodling over the last few days:
There are miles between can't and don't.
There are some many things I could be doing and yet I don't - it's not because I am unable to do ... Read more
From a Thousand Pieces
I've been thinking a lot this week, from deep in my funk, and then at moments, not so deep.
However, I have been contemplating myself. Thinking of myself having my heart broken and feeling like it was shattered into a thousand pieces about... Read more
Setting the Tone
Sometimes, no matter what you do, you can't fix everything.
It's not stopping me from being optimistic. I am a person who thrives on looking at things from the sunny side of the street. Oh sure, I have my down days, but honestly, when I fo... Read more
