Why I did not eat chocolate (tonight)
I couldn't get off the couch. Sure, I can blame it on sagging couch cushions, a lack of strength in my legs, socks sliding on the worn carpet, or I could face facts.

When Downhill is Uphill
Yesterday, a staff member walked out the door in slow motion, or so it seemed.

This just in! Newsflash!
My body likes to move. It a-p-p-r-e-c-i-a-t-e-s movement. I can't believe how much in this past few days I have realized how much better I feel when I am up moving around. It is not just my body. It is my spirit. I... Read more

Where Have I Been?
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
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!

Feeding the Correlation
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?

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.

Dropping the Cloak of Perfection

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
