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
Nothing to Do With Me
I think I am shell shocked by a revelation I've had in the last couple of days.
Growing up, I was mostly friends with boys my age. I did have an occasional girl as a BFF, but mostly I was a tomboy who either hung out with my brothers, and ... Read more
Yesterday, I ate 8 servings of fruits/veggies.
The last time I did that was 2 weeks ago. Back then, it took me the week to do it.
I am making many positive changes and enjoying how I am making those changes. For the last few months, ... Read more
Following my path
Not much to say tonight, except the corn, bean, tomato, chicken dish turned out great!
I did not get my butt up in time to hit the gym, but I did do 7,000 steps today. I'm on my way to being a regular 10,000 step walker. Woot.
I am ... Read more
This is How We Do It
Well, forgive me if I am standing here patting myself on the back for now.
It was a good day. I was busy, but kept my cool. I did bring my lunch, and heated it up in the microwave in the dining area - something I have not done in the 6 (co... Read more
