Celebrating Life
Friday, January 13, 2012      14 comments

Eventually, I had to stop putting off the inevitable. I had to go get change from the bank. I could have sent one of my staff, but it was cold and rainy and I did not feel right about doing that. I tallied up all of my errands, and I made ... Read more
In Front of Humans
Wednesday, January 11, 2012      16 comments

I did something today totally out of character. I ate. In front of humans. Seriously I did. Pretty remarkable for a closet eater. I had some guys in my office working on my computer. They interrupted my mid morning snac... Read more
Critical Mass
Friday, January 06, 2012      18 comments

I got on the elevator this morning with a guy that I've seen in passing. He is usually not Mr. Chatty, but he was friendly this morning. He got off the floor before me, and I noticed when he got off, he sort of bolted down the hallway. My ... Read more
Let's Hug It Out
Wednesday, January 04, 2012      14 comments

I've been having an up and down week. Got a case of the sickies just as it was time to step into up into high gear with my BLC challenge, and also got back to work after a 2 week hiatus. Wasn't that inconvenient? Follow up my coughing spells wit... Read more
Embracing Change and Doing Something Different
Saturday, December 31, 2011      9 comments

Sometimes we sit with what's comfortable, just because it is familiar, even if it has outlasted its purpose and no longer fits our needs. At times, I've been guilty of this with relationships, jobs, and habits. I am working on embracing ch... Read more
Driving Force

I've been setting new year's resolutions and goals ever since I can remember. There is one this year, though, that rises above the rest, and it is what I am committed to achieving. Be authentic. Just be me. and proudly be me. So much ... Read more
Come Back in 10 Weeks
Thursday, December 15, 2011      25 comments

Somewhere around the end of February, I'll be coming back to read this blog as a milestone to myself. I am working with a group of lovely ladies, dubbed Sapphires for a BL challenge. It is just a series of mini-competitions and challenges to he... Read more
Slowly Doing It
Monday, December 12, 2011      9 comments

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!)
Saturday, December 10, 2011      13 comments

Getting it the way you want to can sometimes be labelled high maintenance. Ok, so I am high maintenance. For today that meant, eating only what I wanted at the diner and not overeating at breakfast. Then after arriving at Wendy's ... Read more
If Not Now, When?
Friday, December 09, 2011      11 comments

I am in THE most supportive place I have ever been in my life. I work in a very nurturing, soul-satisfying environment, that while almost always busy, is still yet a great bubble of learning, and compassion. I just realized how much love and car... Read more
See You at the Finish Line
Thursday, December 08, 2011      17 comments

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
What's Important
Wednesday, December 07, 2011      5 comments

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. What's important for me is having the courage to believe in myself against all odds. The... Read more
What I Need
Monday, December 05, 2011      9 comments

Here's what I need --- and I need to do it for myself --- and if I can the ripple effects will be felt by many I need to get my butt out of bed and go to the gym to strength train and ride the bike, and at some point get moving on the ellip... Read more
Dumping Sweet and Sour Sauce..
Sunday, December 04, 2011      8 comments

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
Rockbottom Rockstar
Thursday, December 01, 2011      15 comments

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
