It Happens Every Time

Thursday, March 25, 2010      6 comments

I was in a bit of a funk, feeling overwhelmed at life, in general, not even my own journey, persay, but I started to think things more clearly through when I had a moment to think about things. Ok, my life is not going perfectly smoothly right n... Read more

My hubby was due at work today at 5am! Yay! His early departure helped me get up and get over to the gym by 5am. That is a personal best arrival time! WOO HOO! I rode the bike for 20 mins, doing intervals, which always give me a better wo... Read more

Ups and Downs

Tuesday, March 09, 2010      10 comments

Been in a funk for the last couple of days. Just not feeling like myself - feeling sad over minuscule things - feeling out of sorts. I think maybe its hormonal, but I don't know. This is exactly how I derailed in the past. It was like the anti-... Read more

Pluses and Minuses

Sunday, March 07, 2010      12 comments

It's easy for me to talk the big game when the scale is speaking my language. Today, not so much. It read the same as last week. Ok, I am a little bummed, but keeping the big picture in mind this is what I am telling myself. This is normal.... Read more

Back on the Bike

Wednesday, March 03, 2010      6 comments

Alarm goes off. Followed by snooze button. Alarm. Snooze. Alarm. Snooze. I'm tired. My head hurts. I don't want to get up. I could sleep 2 more hours before I "really" have to go to work. I roll up and out. I remember telling my husband this mor... Read more

Had to give a pep talk

Tuesday, March 02, 2010      5 comments

What a funny turn of events after I was feeling blue this a.m. One of my University students came to do some work with me this a.m. - and while here had a meltdown before my eyes, repeating that same overwhelmed scenario that I just blurte... Read more

Seeking serenity

I vaguely feel like I am having a crisis. I am overwhelmed at work. I am not happy with the state of my relationship with my husband. And I am not overhauling my life as quickly as I want it to be done. Aaaaaaah! I can stay focused and taki... Read more
