The Reality Is
I had a great old high school journalism teacher who would grab a shock of his own hair, and say, "The reality is...." and that thought has been running through my head overnight.
In a sad, but not unexpected, turn of events last night, my... Read more
I'm always going to be fat.
Truth: Maybe, but I can make changes to make me more fit and more healthy.
I'm never going to be as thin as "her."
Truth: Maybe not, but I can make big strides in my health and in my appearance. Stop... Read more
I am completely capable of making positive changes in my life that add up to real actions.
I am getting up a little bit earlier and not just using that time to catch up on the news, or squat on the couch, or roll obsessively through my to-... Read more
Seeking Crock Pot Recipes
I am brand spanking new to the land of crockpots. I have my training wheels and a 2 quart crockpot to give some test runs before I bump up to the next level. The idea is to create some meals I can reheat at my desk at work. (I have a mini portab... Read more
Kicking and Screaming
Taught myself a lesson this week. It is okay if you go kicking and screaming. Just go.
In fact, there is probably a lot of benefit when you are feeling beat up, stressed, worn out just plain tired, and let's not forget CRANKY but you work o... Read more
When the Going Gets Tough
Moments like these remind me of my mettle. I do not back down. I am not known for my subtlety - or so I have been told.
When the going gets tough, you have two choices, go big or go home. I will admit, there are plenty of times I have gone... Read more
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
I did something today totally out of character.
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
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
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
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
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.
Just be me. and proudly be me. So much ... Read more
Come Back in 10 Weeks
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
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!)
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
