It's easy for me to talk the big game when the scale is speaking my language. Today, not so much. It read the same as last week. Ok, I am a little bummed, but keeping the big picture in mind this is what I am telling myself. This is normal.... Read more
Woo hoo, It's Friday!

This is my Friday mantra! Fridays bring out my inner conga dancer (Friday, Friday, Friday!) I DO love my job, but I love Fridays a bit more. :) Been to the gym - to do a bit of cardio and mostly strength training. Psyched, it is all un... Read more
Taking Breaks
Thursday, March 04, 2010      6 comments

Went for a walk - it cleared my head --- and gave me a much needed break from sitting at my desk. I'm happy I got my cardio in - but here is the really great part ---- I wanted to go for the walk. I had to postpone it for a couple of meetings, b... Read more
It's Real

I woke up with leg cramps at 4am, and decided I would putter around and stretch this a.m. instead of going to the gym. I'm committed to doing a walk later around campus and I may in venture into town. Read some inspiring blogs this am (esp... Read more

Alarm goes off. Followed by snooze button. Alarm. Snooze. Alarm. Snooze. I'm tired. My head hurts. I don't want to get up. I could sleep 2 more hours before I "really" have to go to work. I roll up and out. I remember telling my husband this mor... Read more
Had to give a pep talk
Tuesday, March 02, 2010      5 comments

What a funny turn of events after I was feeling blue this a.m. One of my University students came to do some work with me this a.m. - and while here had a meltdown before my eyes, repeating that same overwhelmed scenario that I just blurte... Read more
Seeking serenity

I vaguely feel like I am having a crisis. I am overwhelmed at work. I am not happy with the state of my relationship with my husband. And I am not overhauling my life as quickly as I want it to be done. Aaaaaaah! I can stay focused and taki... Read more
Part 2 of my day
Monday, March 01, 2010      4 comments

I built errands into my day at work and walked to the bank. Frequently in the past, I would send one of my student staff in my stead for that bit of business. Not today! I used the time to build on my cardio from earlier. I completed my goal of ... Read more

Gave it what I got

This morning kind of kicked me. I rolled out of bed as hubby rolled out the door to work. Figured it was a good time to jump around the living room with Richard Simmons. I got through 10 mins and and fizzled out. What's up with that? I have been... Read more
Doing Cartwheels!
Sunday, February 28, 2010      9 comments

I'm doing cartwheels across the lawn! (well virtually for now --- cause we still a yard full of snow -- and because I've never done a cartwheel. One day, though, I will do cartwheels. For now, I am spinning in delight in my mind. :) I we... Read more
Goodbye Ruby Tuesday

It's hard to show up at that restaurant without singing that song in my head. I wonder if everyone feels that tug. :) I ordered the Asian Glazed Salmon which I THOUGHT was a good choice. When I can home and googled the nutritionals, I found... Read more

Boogied with Richard Simmons again today - with hubby just a few steps away in the kitchen. I was a bit self-conscious at first, but then just got into it. I was able to keep up better and last longer than yesterday. In fact, I did 15 consecutiv... Read more

I got up early to go to the gym this a.m. -- but changed it around when it started to snow. I decided to stay in and down one of the dvd's I recently got - Richard Simmons Boogie Down the pounds (it's disco!). First time on, I was not keep... Read more

Surprising realization to me: I am not just changing on the outside; I am changing on the inside. I am seeing myself differently. The thought of this just stopped in my tracks. I am feeling so much better about myself. I am not feeling sorr... Read more
