Well, the title sums up the moment. My focus on fitness has taken a hit over the summer. I'm still making good food choices most of the time but working out quite infrequently. I've got to do something different and I'm not sure what. I'm s... Read more

Saturday, April 27, 2013      1 comments

I have an old friend that I had lost touch with. I found out 3 years after the fact that he and his wife had divorced. He told me that he questioned his faith in God-but found that he was able to rediscover God and reaffirm that God was real a... Read more
On self hatred
Tuesday, March 26, 2013      5 comments

Okay, in the past I have posted about self love and today I'm thinking about self hatred. The negative self talk is easy to come by and far more cruel and incessant than the commentary we would offer anyone else. Merciless. Whether it's self ... Read more

Okay, I had mentioned nerves in my last post. I want to report that the new situation went exceptionally well and the things I was nervous about became non issues. Not only that, but it made me more willing to work in this situation again. (... Read more

Feeling Womanly

Feeling womanly, that's what I call the bloated week. Regardless of what I do right now regarding food or exercise-chances are I will feel the same. Womanly. This is the week when the hope is that I maintain and not gain. Ugh. It is the ha... Read more
Hesitant to say-

Well, I'm getting further away from my plateau weight (4 lbs) but I still find it hard to believe I've broken through. I'm finding it easier to workout now that I watch music videos while I do. I lose track of time and just enjoy what I'm doing... Read more
