When Downhill is Uphill

Tuesday, November 06, 2012      20 comments

Yesterday, a staff member walked out the door in slow motion, or so it seemed. After she left, I was exclaiming, "nooooooo" as I realized an important document was left behind. I had a lot on my plate yesterday (and, in fact today as we... Read more

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

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

Friday, August 31, 2012      11 comments

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
