Threw Out the Welcome Mat

Friday, November 18, 2011      15 comments

Old thinking is no longer welcome around here. I watched myself from afar for a minute yesterday. I realized that behavior that was accepting as gospel is no longer the truth for me. I indulged in a few too many pieces of chocolate yesterd... Read more

The Case Against Meal Planning

Thursday, November 17, 2011      15 comments

Meal planning just makes good sense. I am not a meal planner. Sometimes my DH will ask me "what do you want for dinner?" and I think, "Seriously, we have not had breakfast - how am I supposed to think about that?" I used to develop a ... Read more

Ten Minutes to Freedom

Wednesday, November 16, 2011      4 comments

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

Tuesday, November 15, 2011      10 comments

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 Progress

Monday, November 14, 2011      12 comments

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

Friday, November 11, 2011      14 comments

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

Thursday, November 10, 2011      8 comments

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

Wednesday, November 09, 2011      11 comments

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

Tuesday, November 08, 2011      15 comments

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

Saturday, November 05, 2011      9 comments

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

Friday, November 04, 2011      12 comments

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

Hoorah

Thursday, November 03, 2011      14 comments

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

Celebrating Progress

Wednesday, November 02, 2011      9 comments

I promised myself I would celebrate my progress, so I am! emoticon Read more

Attitude Adjustment

Wednesday, October 26, 2011      11 comments

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

Miles between

Tuesday, October 18, 2011      17 comments

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
