Taking my own advice

Monday, June 03, 2013      1 comments

I have a particularly favorite quote I need to apply to my life more often. To paraphrase, it says "to know is not enough, you must apply". As I sit in front of the monitor, dressed in my workout clothes, I can see the gym across the stree... Read more

Getting it in

Friday, October 26, 2012      2 comments

I was supposed to run a 5k yesterday but life got in the way. Life got in the way and derailed my training; then I was no longer able to get to the race. I got a battery for my scale a couple of weeks ago, and even though I know there are ... Read more

Little Victories

Too Much Two Love

Wednesday, August 08, 2012      5 comments

How's this for motivation: there's too much of me to love. I have to laugh out loud as I'm typing because it's true. There's too much and it's too uncomfortable and I have aches and pains because of it. I'm sick and tired and over it. Once ... Read more

Well, the prospect of looking awesome for a wedding is gone. Engagement is off and his plans have changed. What a blog that will be! Needless to say, I'm still motivated. I just needed a jump start. WOOT! Read more

Twisted Motivation

Sunday, February 27, 2011      9 comments

I know about goal-setting and motivation and all that. And I know I can be my own worst enemy and rationalize away the time and not start NOW and take steps toward my goals. That's exactly what I've been doing. Languishing. Not planning.... Read more

Changes, changes

Tuesday, December 01, 2009      12 comments

Nothing stays the same so don't get too used to things. With planning, change is usually less unexpected, less shocking, more controlled. Easier to deal with. Usually. Sometimes, life throws you a curve and the best-laid plans go astray.... Read more
