Sure, I got a few bucks in the bank (thanks to my 401K), and I know I have a few good work years left in me (unless Powerball comes through I'd say about 20), but my new focus is on HOW I AM GOING TO BE IN RETIREMENT. Just watched an episo... Read more

The Domino Effect

Wednesday, March 21, 2012      9 comments

For me, once I get that kickstart, I am just rolling. Once I can muster something good into place, it is easier to meet the next challenge, and the next, until the tide is turned, and I get some really good momentum going. I have been count... Read more

X Marks the Spot

Here it is. My re-entry into success. Right here. Today. Now. I just did it. My last BIG success came when I committed to walking just 20 minutes a day. That was it. That was all it took to put my rear in gear, challenge myself TO DO SOMETH... Read more

You can be prepared for it, see it coming from a distance, and still be bowled over by it. It's not just the death; it's the wave of emotion that comes with it, There's no point in trying to stop that part of it. It's coming, whether you are rea... Read more

The Reality Is

Wednesday, February 08, 2012      13 comments

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 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

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
