Happiness is... (from my twitter feed)

Tuesday, April 21, 2015      0 comments

I came across this in my Twitter feed over the weekend and it was so timely. "Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is." This has emerged as kind of a theme ... Read more

I don't want to wish my life away

Thursday, April 02, 2015      1 comments

Today I choose to focus on what is good about my job and living situation: - I walk to and from work almost every day. - I'm usually not exclusively seated at a desk during working hours - I'm up and around, lifting/moving/carrying things... Read more

I guess my hibernating paid off

This past weekend, I spent most of my time at home. I did some errands on Saturday morning, but skipped my run, and on Sunday I didn't go out at all, even to lift weights (it was my lower weight/higher reps day) - I used my hand weights and body... Read more

Got new shades!

Sunday, March 29, 2015      0 comments

Five or six years ago, I was shopping for sunglasses and fell in love with a pair of Jessica Simpson aviator-style shades, but didn't buy them, because of the price. Yesterday I picked up the same pair (or very similar style) at TJ Maxx for $13.... Read more

Because there seems to be some confusion (mini-rant)

Thursday, March 12, 2015      1 comments

When I complain that people who have kids aren't expected to work unexpected odd hours as much as me, or just genrally have more flexibility in their schedule or expectstions, because "they have a second shift," I'm not asking for their time (an... Read more

I have to stop freaking out

Wednesday, March 11, 2015      0 comments

I can't start getting hives again, I freaking can't. I can't pay for the doctors visits and medications and I can't gain five pounds a month by going on prednisone every two to three weeks again. I can't do it.... Read more

Trying to put the brakes on...

For about a year, I have been doing great with eating...specifically, stopping eating when I am full, and not letting thoughts of food monopolize my mind. Over Christmas, when I was visiting my parents for a couple days, I did poorly - that was ... Read more

On the positive side

Tuesday, March 03, 2015      1 comments

So usually I walk to and from work each day. Today I did not because it was supposed to be raining buckets during my walk home, and I wasn't really excited by the prospect of coming home with my gym bag, lunch bag, and pack back waterlogged. (I ... Read more

I downloaded some new music to listen to while I work out. A lot of the songs, I know from TurboKick, so those are some really good memories. It made Friday night cardio (elliptical) a lot of fun. I am actually looking forward to kickboxing (sad... Read more

I just realized

That if I had walked home instead of accepting a ride from a coworker after work happy hour tonight I would have made my step goal. I think I am going to cry.... Read more

Trying to make the best of being here

Sunday, February 08, 2015      2 comments

There are some things I really hate about where I live now. (Things like "You can* walk everywhere," where "can" means "you kind of have to because ain't nowhere to park" and "everywhere" means "as long as we get around to shoveling the crappy u... Read more

Sometimes the best we can do is hang in there

I follow an account called Fitness Motivation on twitter (@fitnessxM), which tweeted this the other day: "You don't need a 2-hour workout to make a difference. Work as hard as you can in 30 minutes and still be proud of yourself." For the ... Read more

An idea for Motivation Monday

Monday, January 19, 2015      5 comments

If you feel like "it's no big deal" that you lost "only" 5 pounds or less - or if you think it wouldn't be so bad to gain that much back having lost it - carry a set of hand weights around in your backpack or purse for a while. I understand it i... Read more

Freaking out a little

Thursday, January 15, 2015      2 comments

I am panicking a little about the reality that the cardio kickboxing class I do now comes nowhere close to being as awesome a core workout as TurboKick was. I have no Idea how to compensate for that. I am trying to be creative with modifications... Read more
