Day 23 - September! Got your game plan together?
Hello, September! A new month of opportunities lays before us. “The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before.” (Steve Young)
So, what are your next steps? Will... Read more
Day 22 - EOM...where did the drama go?
End of Month. Feels dramatic, but I don't feel that way inside. It was always a big day and I looked forward to it. I used to plan lots of activities for it: weigh in, measure my body with a tape measure, record and review all the month's di... Read more
Day 21 - Welcome, M-F!
Yippeee!!! I am so glad to welcome Monday. With the weekend now behind me, so too are the hardest eating days of the week! The M-F stretch always feels good to me, with its opportunities and special focus on being productive.

Day 20 - How often do you use the weekend nutrient dense calorie exemption?
Yesterday's adventures led me to a garage sale where I acted on impulse and purchased an old bike. Somehow, I think that is equivalent to some sort of new cardio commitment. Yikes. I have to admit, I did enjoy last night's 45 minutes spin, we... Read more
Day 19 - Do you throw out leftover snacks from entertaining?
Last week I had a cookout for family. That meant having a certain amount of snacks around to serve. Those that I served, were fairly healthy. Homemade guacamole (killer batch), shrimp, low-fat pizza dip, reduced fat crackers, veggie tray with... Read more
DAY 18 - Great day negated by late snacking. Mad!
A good night's sleep. Now that's a much better way to start a day. I am meeting a friend for coffee this morning. I'll have to be really focused if I want to get my cardio and strength in before I leave. I didn't exercise yesterday. Why is ... Read more
Day 17 - Ever start your day at midnight just so snack is on next day?
Ever start out a day at midnight? I did today. No, I don't work on second shift, which would make eating a meal at midnight reasonable. I exercised too late, which prevented me from feeling ready for my natural bed time. Seemed like the perf... Read more
Today, I've got to attack yesterday's open item: attack the closet and find a 2nd interview outfit.

Day 15 - Look Good, Feel Good?
Ever have one of those days that is just BLAH? Many say, "look good, feel good." It makes me think if that's enough to make a difference, really, on what's going on inside. It would seem more useful to dig deeper and maybe appreciate all the ... Read more
I have a job interview today that involves skill testing and the interview. I'm trying to keep my stress under check. Until mid-afternoon I will be focused on this process and will set goals for later this afternoon/early evening.
Goals: ... Read more
Day 13 - Quiet, peaceful....
With vacation and the cookout behind me, I am enjoying the quiet serenity of today. The cookout was exhausting, but enjoyed by all. My back feels broken so I will acquiesce to its cry for mercy and just take it easy. No cardio. No weights.

Day 12 -
Today, DH and I (mostly me) are hosting a cookout for DHs family, as his brother and wife are visiting from out of state. I am exhausted and sore from yesterday's cleaning preparations. This morning: cooking, grocery shopping, cooking, and th... Read more
Day 11 - Charge!
Murphy's Law got me again. Took a big old chunk out of me today.
Ever have one of those days where every minute counts? Today, I need to stay calm, and make sure that I set some intentions for my day and FOCUS.
I know one thing. I... Read more
Day 10 - Cybercelebration!!!

Day 9 - About Face
DAYS 5 (Sat), 6 (Sun), 7 (Mon), 8 (Tues)
On vacation. So? I don't know about you, but meals that I eat that are outside of my plan tend to totally bust me. I get sloppy about meeting my exercise goals and making good food choices. I sti... Read more
