Let's Hug It Out

Embracing Change and Doing Something Different

Slowly Doing It
It took a lot of huffing and puffing to get up that hill. Truth be told, it was more like an incline, and not a very steep one at that. I looked at my bulky shadow cresting the hill, and thought, "well one day, you will be smaller." It truly tak... Read more
High Maintenance (and proud of it!)

See You at the Finish Line
I woke up with a weird pain, and it took me only a moment to realize what it was - I was laying awkwardly on one of my fat rolls on my stomach. Hmmm. How's that for a reality check?
If for nothing else, I am going to go down a new road jus... Read more
I had this thought noodling around in my head as I went to bed last night - "What is really important?" When I woke up, this answer popped out.

Well here's a first. I dumped out the sweet and sour sauce that arrived with our Chinese food delivery. I had asked for hot pepper oil for hubby but I guess they got confused. No matter. In the past, I would have put my rice directly into it an... Read more
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
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
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
Here's an obvious question:
Who wants to be fat?
