Turning Common Wisdom on its Side

Saturday, October 27, 2012      10 comments

You know the establishment is always saying never go shopping when you are hungry? What they should really say, is eat until you are stuffed and then waddle your booty in the store. We didn't order appetizers as we have sometimes don... Read more

Where Have I Been?

Wednesday, October 24, 2012      10 comments

Truth be told, I am not sparking less, but I am sparking less here. I am sparking more in my own life, doing things day by day that I see are mattering to me more again. Whew! For a long time, I didn't see any change happening, and finally it is... Read more

One-Word Answers

Monday, October 22, 2012      7 comments

I've been a bit of a slacker lately on the blogging, so I am borrowing a fun little jumpstart from my friend, Pixie-Licious. (Thanks, Pix!) (Per Pix, the only rule is to keep your answers to one word) Come, you can do it, too! Where is you... Read more

Feeding the Correlation

Saturday, October 06, 2012      9 comments

I felt like crap earlier this week. My ankle hurt, I was very tired, and a bit cranky. Man, what could it be? I couldn't help but think.....is it something I am eating? Today I bought almond butter, almonds, walnuts, a few snacks, and lots... Read more

READ THE LABEL

Tuesday, September 04, 2012      27 comments

At no time have I felt it is as important as it was right now --- read the label before you eat it. Here's what I missed: Contains: Milk, Wheat, Tilapia ... Read more

Re-Define Yourself

Friday, August 31, 2012      11 comments

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

Saturday, July 21, 2012      13 comments

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

Monday, July 09, 2012      6 comments

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

The Coat

Friday, June 22, 2012      12 comments

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

Thursday, June 21, 2012      8 comments

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

Wednesday, June 20, 2012      6 comments

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

Tuesday, June 19, 2012      10 comments

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: Eating Staying... Read more

Less Swelling

Monday, June 18, 2012      5 comments

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

Sunday, June 17, 2012      3 comments

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
