Peeling Away the Layers
Just find something small to change and THEN DO IT.
Here is my spark. I stopped eating scones. Every morning, I would get a cup of tea or coffee with a baked good, most often a scone or a crumb cake. Do I still want them? Sometimes yes, bu... Read more
Lay of the Land
I was dying to get that promotion, I deserved it. I did. And I got it.
But now with it, comes a whole host of things I didn't really want: MORE work, and some underlings who are awesome, and some who suck. Mostly suck. It is my job to turn ... Read more
No More Mrs. Nice Guy
Take that, powderpuff!
Yeah, I am talking to you! I am sick of being sidelined with weakness, sickness, or just plain ol' laziness. There, I said, laziness! Not when it comes to work. Not when it comes to figuring out the oh so serious iss... Read more
Dream a Little Dream
I sat down on a two-seater on a train and there was room to spare between me and the gent next to me. Noticeable room. No longer the squish yourself in, try not to get noticed, please don't sigh and be obvious to show that I am probably crushing... Read more
The Most Exhilarating 5 Seconds Ever!
There is only one way to describe my morning: exhilarating, especially this one tiny little piece.
If you have read my last blog, you know I sprained my knee and I have been struggling a bit while walking around. In the short term, I have ... Read more
I've never been speedy gonzalez, but I feel like it this morning. A few days ago, I sprained my knee and my activity plummeted. When I had to go to work, my walking was either excruciatingly slow or an over pronounced limp. Not pretty at best, b... Read more
I am reminded of this key to my success every single day. For me, there is no greater lesson, and one I have to learn over and over again ---- than loving myself. When I love myself, I respect myself enough to call myself out when I am off kilte... Read more
I planned last night for 2 pieces of pizza. I ate them. I enjoyed them, mostly. The crust was a little sturdy, but still mostly enjoyable. And then I stopped. I think I threw hubby for a loop by just having those two slices. Nope. I planned for ... Read more
Point A to Point B
When you limit your vision (as I have), sometimes all you can manage is getting from Point A to Point B. Lately, my life feels all about work, and what I can do to get ahead, and I am getting ahead. The deal is not yet inked but I have taken on ... Read more
Ring Toss or Reason 74
How's this for inspired post? It's 2:30am Saturday morning and I just climbed out of the shower.
Reason 74 for shedding the weight, getting healthier, etc is RING TOSS.
Pardon me if this is TMI, but a reason like this is a motivating f... Read more
Victory Is Mine!
I was loving my lunch time salad choice so much, I decided it was a good match for dinner. I frequently leave work after many folks have enjoyed their supper. So last night, I stopped into the same cafe (on my floor) and ate the same: spinach... Read more
That's What I am Talking About
Take a look at this:
It is organic spinach with tomatoes with balsamic vinagrette. Perfectly delicious!
I did everything the same for l... Read more
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.
I am fat.
I want think I want the taste of somet... Read more
When Downhill is Uphill
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
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
