Simplifying my plans

Sunday, May 02, 2010      9 comments

Back from vacay with a new resolve: I can succeed and have planned my meals for breakfast and lunch for the week, and having planned the types of food I'll have for dinner for the week. Woo hoo. It is doable --- and I know I can handle the ... Read more

How Do you Know Me?

Thursday, April 22, 2010      14 comments

I went to a farmer's market and was talking to a student/staff member of mine. I don't even recall the topic of conversation though it may have been job related. Another girl standing nearby approached and asked, "Are you .....?" Um, yes. We ... Read more

I bought a speedo swim cap tonight! I'm going on vacay next week and I am planning on swimming! HA!!!!!!! I can't believe I did this --- I am so amazed with myself. I am planning to wear a bathing suit in public and GO SWIMMING, and I can't wai... Read more

Another Phase

Tuesday, April 20, 2010      5 comments

I went to the bank (about a half mile from my office) and I was remembering there was more than one day where I planned to come in late so I could park at the bank to be there when it opened. The same bank I walk to. I actually had a "good" excu... Read more

Imperfect Plans

Monday, April 19, 2010      7 comments

I like everything all sewed up. That is just my nature. I like things to either be perfect, or to not be at all. That thinking has not done so well for me in the past. I realized (last night) that I can have imperfect plans. Things don't have to... Read more

Just took a walk

Friday, April 16, 2010      8 comments

Had some orders to drop off at two different offices. Frequently, I would send my staff out for this purpose. Not today! I did it myself and enjoyed a good stretch of my legs while completely these little errands! It is good to get out in the fr... Read more

TGIF!

Whew!!!! Been a busy week but have had lots of opportunities to shine. I am very good at playing the mentor role at work --- and I am doing it all very well right now. I have one more super busy week after this one, and then vacay fo... Read more

Sharing the Load

Thursday, April 15, 2010      7 comments

I told my husband that I am in the busiest time for me right now at work. Today and tomorrow are two big days at work, where I have to participate and do a lot of advance work to help make things go smoothly. He is Mr. gung ho at getting F... Read more

No eating in the car

Tuesday, April 13, 2010      14 comments

I was seeing my sister this past weekend and I had to clean out my car. For one, she gave it to me when she bought a new car. Since then, I've racked up 50,000 miles on it, maybe. Quite a lot in any case. I'm messy marvin. My trunk is still full... Read more

Thanks, Mom

Monday, April 12, 2010      8 comments

My relationship with my mom has not always been perfect,...but today I'm remembering that she carried me around for 9 months and planned her whole life in that time around me! I'm quite sure that she did the same collectively for the rest of my ... Read more

Going, going,...gone

Sunday, April 11, 2010      12 comments

I can't wait to keep my walking streak alive today. I've hit my 10,000 goal 3 times in the last week, including yesterday's 13,000 mark. The walking will help me corral my eating also. Once I am seeing payoffs in my energy from better movement: ... Read more

It Wasn't on sale

Saturday, April 10, 2010      7 comments

HA! I went shopping with my sister today! It was great! I bought a necklace, (not on sale), hand cream and soap, not on sale, and an earring tree to display earrings I make (and will one day sell). I saw a great outfit in a window, and basical... Read more

Sweet Smell of Success

Friday, April 09, 2010      10 comments

Here's a thank you gift to myself! I loved that I just walked (which oddly felt like "nothing"....it used to feel like such a chore and project) --- and picked the destination of a flower shop. I went and selected the flowers that I liked best i... Read more

Progress not Perfection

Friday, April 09, 2010      11 comments

I've made excellent progress this week --- walking most days, and that will continue on this weekend. I am starting to see more of my warrior spirit re-emerge. I think I'd forgotten how strong I can be, and let so many things chip away at my spi... Read more

No PAIN, No GAIN

Thursday, April 08, 2010      15 comments

Ha! It's not what you are thinking. :) I had this thought while slipping off to dreamland last night. I was basking in the the feeling of having completed 10,000 steps yesterday, and it occurred to me that "nothing" hurt. Not my legs, my an... Read more
