Whatever it is that makes the essence of who you are needn't always be the same. You are welcome to re-invent yourself any time you'd like. Yes, really.
When I was driving home from work tonight, I realized it was the second day this week w... Read more
Dropping the Cloak of Perfection
I have a lot going on in my head right now, and I will write it all down once I sort it out - but in the meantime, I am learning something I have struggled with for a long time.
I can never do anything good enough that it is going to make s... Read more
Positive Steps today!
Bought some REAL whole wheat bread.
Chopped up lots of watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, and threw in a half pint of raspberries to make a big fruit salad. Woo hoo!
Got my AC fixed!
Woo hoo!... Read more
Yesterday doesn't matter
There is only today - what are you going to do with today?
I have viewed myself for so long as fat, out of shape, a blob, if you will - I overlooked that I could change at any minute I wanted to - I could change what I was doing and how I ... Read more
I did a little shopping last night - mostly because I have a casual work function today during lunchtime and it has been sweltering. I work at a semi-conservative place so shorts, and jeans are out.
I bought a couple of things to wear, and... Read more
It's All About Trust
If I can trust myself to handle my own body and care for it in a way that is nurturing and good for my health, I will succeed.
If I trust that I am a good person, kind, compassionate, loving towards others, then I will not question every li... Read more
More than the Galloway Method
I'm told this is Jeff's idea - make your run (or walk) mailbox to mailbox or landmark to landmark - you pick whatever it is. Good for you, Jeffy! I'm sure it's a great book, and one day when I am ready, I'll whip that puppy out and become a tru... Read more
Owning It means taking care of myself and recognizing that I am the only one with keys to my place. I am responsible for feeding me good stuff, taking out the trash and knowing when I have had enough and it is time to stop:
Staying... Read more
Not much to say tonight, but I am revelling in have a smaller (less swollen) foot. My left foot tends to swell if I sit too long at night, and I have notably been moving around more tonight - including doing 35 mins of the wii and taking out the... Read more
Temptations all around. No wonder "they" say don't go to the store on an empty stomach! Temptations were certainly calling me. However, God all put other distractions in my way: the woman at the checkout line in front of me who could not get all... Read more
We went out to dinner tonight and as usual did the squeeze into the booth. It is STILL a tight fit, but it no longer feels like I am using a vise grip around my middle to get in and out of the booth. I ate too much, and I am still feeling overst... Read more
It's okay to have a meltdown. I was angry, sad, and cranky today. And oh, did I mention impatient?
People got on my nerves today.People who you shouldn't snap at (like your boss, hubby, and um, God). For the sake of argument, I'm lumping H... Read more
Lovehandles. Hmmm. Lovely lovehandles? Really?
I am delighted, doing a happy dance, shake it here, shake it there, happy dance!
I have them.
My waist is whittling, slowly but surely and I have a place to ... Read more
Fun in the SuperMarket
Hubby and I did the bulk of our grocery shopping yesterday, but I had a few items to pick up today. I am using a calories in and calories out guideline and it feels good to me to just have a number and aim to get it in a healthy, manageable and ... Read more
Fast Food Success
We batted around endless suggestions, and oddly decided on our cheap dinner would be at Wendy's. We were on the tail end of our errands and I noticed another stop - and tossed out, "If you have no preference, I would rather got to Chick Fil A. "... Read more
