Sabotaged Again
Thursday, September 22, 2011      2 comments

I was so looking forward to Zumba tonight. Woke congested but that's not unusual for this time of year. By the time I arrived at work, realized it was not going away. This is not what I needed now. I have massive amounts of work to get done ... Read more
Secret Weapons

Well, as I remember Zumba works because I was able to better manage the walk to work today and with the laptop. Worked in NJ today. It's a different location for me. It's on the river and beautiful (well outside). Things seem to be turning... Read more
Fall and I'm Back Kinda Sorta

Well, the weather has snapped and autumn is here. I leave for work in the dark and can tell that very shortly I'll be driving home in the dark. Tonight was the first Zumba class since summer. I started with some of these ladies 2 Augusts ago... Read more
Starting the weekend off right
Saturday, September 17, 2011      3 comments

I got up this morning and went to the gym by myself. Part of the reason I couldn't go last night is that I do wobble and sometimes walk really badly. It's ironic but I am the one who looks drunk. Gym is in an iffy neighborhood after dark so ... Read more

Well, a long day at work ended by T called me just as I was leaving and I was pretty sure he was drunk again. Got home and yes he is. I was looking forward to going to the gym and then we were supposed to get something for him. Since his pros... Read more
No Falls Today
Thursday, September 15, 2011      2 comments

Well, I didn't fall today. Stumbled once or twice I think it's more because I was scared. Today I feel fragile. I have a really, really scary bruise on my lower back. It is seriously huge. And I have bruises on my arm and ankle. Saw the guy w... Read more

So, I am working at our NJ office and someone wants to discuss a project I have been involved in and moving forward. Luckily, this is a person I have known for years and we share things. So we both know deep things about each other personally. ... Read more

I made it back to the gym tonight. I was on the elliptical. DH watching me. He told me last time I was there two weeks ago to wear better sneakers. I usually have a dance sneaker as my foot needed more support. I have a condition which we re... Read more
Facing It
Monday, September 12, 2011      2 comments

Long weekends and summer don't do it for me. I miss Zumba and as much as I tried to keep active, it hasn't worked. I have gained back almost everything I lost especially after the last two long weekends. I walk tons every day to work and whil... Read more
Different kinds of weight
Friday, September 02, 2011      3 comments

So let me bare my soul. There are all kinds of weight and I am thinking that some of them are related. When I am happy, I am thin. During my first marriage I ballooned up. I left him at the beginning of December and by the end of January was ... Read more
The Dress
Thursday, August 25, 2011      2 comments

Today I am entranced with my new dress size 8 (which is a lie- no it's what it says on the label). It's cream eyelet lace with a flesh colored lining. When I bought it, I thought it was pink like my background here. This morning I realized it... Read more

Yesterday, Tom wanted to go to Apple to get his ipod looked at. I didn't want for reasons that i will vent about another time. However, we went. It didn't get fixed. The store is at one of the better malls around here. I have denied myself... Read more

It took some bad turns but I am back on track I am back in the "gym" mood. I had a "lapse" because of Zumba stopping for the summer at its usual location. I also wanted my summer and have walking and gardening but it's not the same. The he... Read more

I have been cooking today after my visit to the green market. I love to cook. I can remember in elementary school we were told men had to learn fractions for their jobs and women needed it so they could cook! Well, I do cook. And it's sooth... Read more
Mirror, Mirror

What's good about seeing yourself in the mirror. It takes courage. Yes, you need to be strong and grounded to look in that mirror. Is it a reflection? Yes and no. It is an image of what you look like not who you are or what you are abou... Read more
