It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. (You Dickens fans will know that line is lovingly lifted.) I had awesome day if not excruciatingly busy at work. Still, my first meeting of the day was well planned for, and I aced it. ... Read more
Waking Thoughts
Monday, November 28, 2011      8 comments

I woke up early this a.m. in the three o'clock hour and sat up for a bit. I whipped out my long neglected journal and penned a thought that popped into my head: I am cherished by many. I don't know where that thought came from or why it just pop... Read more
Not looking for answers in the fridge
Saturday, November 26, 2011      8 comments

Here's my foray into sharing my angst instead of swallowing it down. I was a messy kid. Very messy. I still have tendencies to let clutter pile up, but I am a far cry from where I once was. There's a story told with occasional regular... Read more
The Be All and End All
Wednesday, November 23, 2011      9 comments

Here's an obvious question: Who wants to be fat? Not me! I am so sick of it. I am tired of waddling around, and having a fit of not being able to swing my leg out of my car to get out like every other able bodied person on the planet. ... Read more
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
