COMPLETELY CAPABLE

Wednesday, January 25, 2012      17 comments

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

Tuesday, January 24, 2012      10 comments

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

Tuesday, January 24, 2012      8 comments

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

Wednesday, January 18, 2012      18 comments

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

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

Thursday, December 29, 2011      17 comments

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
