Positive Affirmations

I am a winner. I am a positive thinker. I know when to walk, run, and stop at the first sign of pain. I love my hair, my eyes, my smile, my laugh and my voice. I love my family both near and far. I recognize the need to take care of my... Read more

My fantasy: it is week 6 and I have shattered my fitness streak and have reached a weight that is less than what I am now. Working out is a habit along with cooking all of my meals ahead of time. I have emergency snacks on hand in the car and ... Read more

...because I did not start a challenge I signed up for. I have missed two weeks of it so far. I did not learn to swim, but I did conquer my fear of water. I plan on taking up swimming classes next year, no matter what it costs. Maybe ne... Read more

Awesome Weekend

Sunday, August 21, 2011      1 comments

I did a lot of cleaning. I am nowhere near done. But I feel empowered to let things go. I am not a hoarder by any means. I have, however, not been as diligent with cleaning. I imagine it is because I never did have a plan of action. ... Read more

Conquering Fears

Thursday, August 18, 2011      1 comments

I have a fear of falling asleep alone, bugs, and water. I went to my first swim class today since the age of four. When I was four, my mother took me to the ymca in the neighborhood. The teacher held my head under the water way before I wa... Read more

Happen for me every 27 days because of my period. Here comes the migraine. I am tired of it. It makes me feel like I need to be in therapy, back on meds, hospitalized, dressed up in adult Huggies and a onesie trying to recapture a childhoo... Read more

I lost five pounds by doing a slow jog 3 times last week

Monday, August 15, 2011      4 comments

I wasn't expecting to. I also walked 6 miles a couple of times, too. I thought surely I would do something wrong like overeat somewhere (notice I barely track my food). I often thought I would just throw in the towel and just give in to the a... Read more

The boss took my pic with his tablet

Wednesday, August 10, 2011      2 comments

I don't really know what to do with that. Everyone around here calls me his favorite and actually ask me to ask him things throughout the workday because they think he is a tyrant. He is actually a nice guy once you are talking with him one on... Read more

Crazy Monday

Monday, August 08, 2011      0 comments

I actually said no to a coworker about doing flights of stairs. I have this new fear of them because the last time I did 6 floors 3 times in 15 minutes, I had trouble walking for 3 days. I would love to have shapely youthful calves but I... Read more

I am hoping to get a male weight loss partner. I have tried weight loss partners with females but once they see how hard I go at it, they don't want to work out with me anymore. I am pretty sure a guy would be motivating, because he is not goin... Read more

Tantalizing Tuesday

Tuesday, August 17, 2010      1 comments

Just wanted a funny title for this one. Grateful for all the comments I get, they make me reevaluate my day and strategize when I sneak a few exercise moves into my day. I don't know how my job turned into a desk job. It really isn't supposed... Read more

This Monday isn't so bad

Monday, August 16, 2010      1 comments

I just wish I could have put in more exercise. I moved into a place that has no outlets. I guess I have to rely on memory of my workout dvds until the electrician can come in and do his thing. I will behave when it comes to eating though and ... Read more

I would love to have a lunch hour where I did not have to speak to anyone. I spend 8 hours five days a week speaking to people. sometimes I have absolutely had it and I could just use an hour of silence. Like this but 60 minutes long. It ne... Read more
