Stepping UP to the Plate

Thursday, June 03, 2010      7 comments

One day at a time. I am all too completely aware of my shortcomings. I could rattle off a dozen in 30 seconds. Rattling off a dozen things I like about myself is more of a challenge --- but here is something that I have just caught on to ---- it... Read more

NEW QUESTION

Wednesday, June 02, 2010      5 comments

The question is no longer can I do it? ... I know THAT answer. Hell yeah! The question is arer we going to do it? Are we going to "man up" and find a way no matter what? Permission slip signed for self: I give you total and complete approv... Read more

Friday, May 28, 2010      4 comments

I love Fridays! Today is a great day! I've had some very positive interactions with co-workers, including hearing that someone I don't really like is leaving! WOO HOO! Some of my old staff may come back to visit this wknd. Have a couple of days... Read more

Throwdown

Thursday, May 27, 2010      11 comments

I'm currently on a program where sugar is very limited. It's not that I could not have something, but if I ate "x", then I would prob blow my day's sugar allotment with just a nibble. Yesterday was that day when I was working later than norma... Read more

Building Patience...one traffic jam at a time

Wednesday, May 26, 2010      6 comments

Sat in an hour's worth of traffic today, on top of my normal commute, thanks to a disabled truck. It was good for me. I have been rushing around like a zombie lately. Not having time to stop and smell the roses. It's going to be a scorcher later... Read more

... my own positive role model. ... walking for the fun of it. ...stepping out of my comfort zone. ...handling social situations confidently. ...dressing like I care what I look like. ...enjoying the person I am becoming... Read more

Minor adjustments

Tuesday, May 25, 2010      4 comments

My M.O. at night (a danger eating zone), has lately been - watch a little tv, and go read, make jewelry or go on the computer. Directions to self: do not sit in the living room and veg. What did I do last night? You got it, sat in the room and... Read more

Some huffing, less puffing

Monday, May 24, 2010      7 comments

Thought the building hours would be changing today, so I thought I would have to climb the "monster hill" instead of entering on the lower level and grabbing the elevator. Only the upper door is keyed and getting there requires walking up the bi... Read more

Belt Tightening

Sunday, May 23, 2010      8 comments

Seat belt tightening that is. It has been a long while since i had to re-cinch my belt so that it was tighter on top. My normal m.o. is for it to be very snug around my belly. What a great place to notice a difference. I am loving it. WOOT!... Read more

Light as a Feather

Sunday, May 23, 2010      5 comments

I'm down to a weight that I think is lower than I have been in the last 4 years. Wow! That feels great. It could be in my head, but that mere statement makes me feel lighter and make me more easily able to move around. It could very well be wate... Read more

Song in my Soul

Friday, May 21, 2010      5 comments

I have a special place in my heart for Fridays. Even on the occasional time when I have to work on a weekend, I still feel more light-hearted. This morning was no different. I did not want to wrench myself from my bed, but when I did, I was gle... Read more

Mistaken Identity

Thursday, May 20, 2010      8 comments

I opened my lunch bag for a mid morning snack. (Yes, to me it is mid morning.) I saw a round brown thing that looked remarkably like a cookie. The thought passed through my head, "Is that a cookie?" (I'd like to add that I packed my own lunch ... Read more

DOO DAH!!! DOO DAH!!! OH DOO DAH DAY!!!

Wednesday, May 19, 2010      4 comments

I have stuck to my eating plan for 3 days. I am patting myself on the back because it has not been easy. I am doing it, though. I would often eat good foods, just way too much of it. So now, I am doing BFC. I have lost 5 lbs from my last weigh i... Read more

Chewing my Right Arm off

Wednesday, May 19, 2010      6 comments

On a scale (no pun intended) of 1 to 10, how hungry am I? Right now, not hungry at all. I am on the low end. I ate breakfast 3 hours ago and the hungries have not yet kicked in. Yesterday, though, I was very hungry and it was a fight to keep mys... Read more

Let's Get it Started!

Wednesday, May 12, 2010      12 comments

New road work today made me scramble in a bit earlier to work. On my way in, I heard a song that makes me want to groove: "Let's Get it Started" by the Black Eyed Peas! Now, there's a prophetic moment if I ever had one. It is time to start doing... Read more
