Pick and Choose Your Celebrations
This was a tough weekend for a sugar addict.
A Bridal Shower, an eating out occasion with friends, (Ice Cream available), leftovers brought to the church of all the celebrations including a birthday cake!
No way!!! (Why me Lord?) I've bee... Read more
This n That
It was a good "Y'Day" yesterday. Just glad it won't happen very often like that, I hope.
Today was a bridal shower that I really didn't want to attend for more reasons than one, but it was ok. Didn't need to spend calories on finger foods,... Read more

The coffee is brewing and I've had my breakfast. Getting ready to go to work (at Y). Be there at 8 am today, and it's a good 45 minute drive normally. I'm excited, I'm scared, a mixed bag. I get off at 12 and then will do my wo... Read more
What's Going On?
Today was my first day at the desk for training at the Y. It's mostly an information desk. So the key there is FIND the information that people want answers for. And there's lots of information, programs, kid's stufff swimming, sports, etc. OK. ... Read more
Changes coming . . .
My life is about to change. No more lots of time to do chores, Spark, and whatever I want. I am about to enter the work force once again. I begin on Wednesday. It's going to be difficult. I am so used to my time being my own. I am afraid that th... Read more
From a Strictly Mathematical Viewpoint:
What equals 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been in situations where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 101%?

Cranky, Irritable, Gripey Grouch
I was cranky and irritable this weekend. I thought ice cream would help, but it didn't, especially when I read high fructose corn syrup on the label. (I try to avoid that.) Don't I try to avoid ice cream too? Welll. . ., yea. I haven't had real ... Read more

My furnace is heating up . . .
I am so blessed! My enthusiasm for things spiritual is echoing throughout my being. My body is responding to my more increased efforts and courage to persevere. Who says God is not real?
My inward furnace is heating up. I am sooo glad. I ha... Read more
One way to get me to the gym . . . . .
Yes, I am putting in an application to work at the Y, again. I've worked there before. Never doing what I WANT to do, yet. Came close before, but was cut off.
I plan to either go in early or to stay later than my hours to get in a workout. ... Read more
Setting Some Goals
This is long overdue. I need to write down some of my goals and plan how to achieve them.
#1 Goal - Get back to the Bible, and prayer, and studies.
I've let this slip for awhile because of too many distractions.
#2 Goal - Get back... Read more
Trip ta Trip ta Trip . . . .
Well this weekend has been difficult, just as I was feeling in the weight loss groove. You know the feeling, when you feel like you're doing all the right things and the weight is coming off too. You've GOT IT going on. Love that feeling!
W... Read more
There are some days when I feel like I'm just existing, one day is very similar to another. Being successful at controlling food intake is a boost. Having too many incidental things to do to get to the gym is a downer. Today is, I mean the past ... Read more
