Reset Day 92: Enough already
The weekend is over, my birthday has passed, and I am so ready to move into September! I am exhausted, a bit disappointed in my efforts in August and stressed. However, I just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Soon this point will ... Read more
Reset day 89: from spotlight to the trenches
Tuesday I had my moment in the spotlight. I danced on the stage of life. I basked in its warmth. I soaked it in. I enjoyed every minute of it (except the minute I saw the photos).
Today, I am back in the trenches of life.
I am no... Read more
Reset day 88: blah blah blah
Yesterday was an awesome day. I logged over 25,000 steps on the fitbit. When you are a walker, not a runner, and work full time, that is a LOT of steps!
I stayed on track with my food yesterday too! Yippee.
Today those pesky bagel... Read more
Reset Day 87: That moment when....
We had our office Summer Staff party yesterday. I received an award for 10 years of service. I struggled with what to wear to the party which was being held at the local gardens. You know, summer dinner party at the gardens... cute summery su... Read more
Reset Day 78: Still learning and a slice of vacation
Yesterday we celebrated my son's birthday with the family. There were bbq ribs on the grill, fresh corn on the cob, side dishes and of course cake and ice cream. As I ate, I thought to myself: the celebrating never ends. Life IS a celebration... Read more
Reset day 74: I'm back, grateful and making a u-turn
I am back from vacation. It was wonderful to be away. I reconnected with an old friend I hadn't seen in years. I laughed until my face hurt. I challenged myself with some hikes. I set my feet on the North Country Trail and planted a seed. ... Read more
Reset day 60: Flounder is more than a fish
Ever feel like that fish someone caught and tossed in the boat - flopping around knowing that this isn't good, that you really WANT to be somewhere else, a feeling of panic, flopping around but going nowhere? I kind of feel like that today. I'... Read more
Reset day 58: Tucker Tuesday and mother nature's paintbox
It has been hot here. Hot AND humid. Sticky. Yucky. Not exactly the weather that one wants to go out in and walk a big, black dog. The dog was panting before I put on his leash!
So, change of plans. Instead of walking the dog, why not... Read more
Restart Day 57: this is your life...
Well vacation is over.... for now.
Looking back at vacation, I feel pretty good about the choices I made. My exercise was low. I knew it would be. We spent more than 6 hours each day in the car. None of our lodging places had workout r... Read more
Day 46: I can..... I did
Yesterday was a bit of a struggle for me. I got home from work and was thinking supper. My first thought? Make a box of mac and cheese and down the WHOLE thing. It just sounded comforting and good. I got the pan out of the cupboard and fill... Read more
Reset day 45: Lethargic and Walking Wednesday
Yesterday it was inspired.... today, lethargic! That old pendulum just keeps swinging. Positive side, it won't stay here.
After work yesterday, I had a nice dinner with my friend. We went to a Mexican restaurant and I had chicken and ric... Read more
Reset Day 44: Inspired
Well yesterday was a challenge. Self forgiveness and acceptance comes hard for this girl, especially when it comes to not reaching my goals. However, I did manage to reign it in most of the time.
My son had softball practice after work. ... Read more
Reset Day 43: 50 shades of popcorn
I had a busy weekend. I worked a fundraiser Saturday - my job was to take money at the door and sell tickets for food. So, I sat on my butt from 9-5:30 with little time to get up and stretch. Not the best for getting steps in! However, a won... Read more
Reset day 40: TGIF Trusting, Grateful, Inspired, Faith!
Years ago I met a woman in Chicago at a women's conference named Brene Brown. She had just published a book named "I Thought It Was Just Me". In her workshop on Friday, she had a TGIF moment where we all shared what we were Trusting, Grateful,... Read more
Reset: Day 39 Disoriented?
Oh boy, day two at work after a long weekend and there are those dang Panera cookies and bagels. I didn't have any fresh fruit to bring this morning, just a protein bar. I need to get to the grocery store! I did break down and have a quarter ... Read more
