Weekend Eating
Friday, August 05, 2016      4 comments

I have tracked my food ( in my mind) for as long as I can remember. Eat healthy and exercise 5 days a week and take the weekend off! Any cookies, chips, pizza, fries, and wine leaves this house at midnight Sunday! Does this sound familiar to any... Read more
Year Of YES day 15
Saturday, January 23, 2016      10 comments

I began to self medicate in April after my mother passed away. I worked out every single day and at night I would have 1-2 glasses of wine. Each morning I would vow to stop, but I continued and now this is a regular routine for me. Today I said ... Read more
Year of YES day 14
Thursday, January 21, 2016      6 comments

Today I picked up the phone and scheduled my Mammogram. I might not have called except my doctor reminded me today during our visit. You have to understand I have been "meaning to call" for 8 months! Making phone calls is not something I enjoy a... Read more
Year Of Yes Day 13
Wednesday, January 20, 2016      4 comments

I own the elephant in the room as much as I own the conversation in my head. For the first time in my adult life I can honestly say I am okay. I am okay with my weight gain, okay with who I see in the mirror and okay with how you look at me. ... Read more

Tuesday, January 19, 2016      6 comments

Saying YES is still working for me even though I am behind with my blogs. I want to share a victory I had this weekend while visiting DW's family. For 10 years now I have had to deal with comments ranging from my weight to how much money I spend... Read more

Monday, January 11, 2016      6 comments

Is it really that hard to say thank you? My sister and I recalled how quickly we could clean the house, wash clothes and cook dinner all before my mother walked through the door. I waited often times for a thank you or even an acknowledgement w... Read more
Year of Yes Day 9
Saturday, January 09, 2016      6 comments

Saying YES is working for me! Clearing out the clutter from my mind and my home is allowing me to discover names of people who haunted me in my sleep, my waking hours and even the "stories" in my head. This may not seem like a huge problem, but ... Read more
Year Of Yes Day 7 & 8
Friday, January 08, 2016      11 comments

Today I throw the last of my photo albums and yearbooks out in the trash. I am no longer the person in these pictures. These pictures of my smiling face hide the pain, shame and hurt of a life I experienced as a child and young adult. As I con... Read more
The Year Of Yes Day 5 & 6
Wednesday, January 06, 2016      8 comments

Today I am still addressing emotions kicked up from yesterday. I have a habit of making situations far worse than they truly are. I will create a number of stories in my head until I have convinced myself I am at fault. I spent four hours on the... Read more

Today I said YES to making an appointment to see my doctor - need I say more?... Read more
Year Of Yes Day 3
Sunday, January 03, 2016      5 comments

Today I went out in public with a ball cap on and an old comfortable sweatshirt. I said YES to comfort and NO to feeling foolish. For years my career defined me and I dressed the part even on my day off. Nothing but the best for this consultant ... Read more
Year of Yes Day 2
Saturday, January 02, 2016      10 comments

Today I said YES to slowing down how I respond to someone or something. This is a result of living with two abusive parents and the need to please. I move at great speed when you ask for something and always willing to go the extra mile. I have ... Read more

Shonda Rhimes lost 100 pounds and I wanted to know her secret. Would she tell me something I didn't already know or try in my 57 years of life? As I read page after page I began to see a little bit of me in her. I plan on saying YES to something... Read more

My goal this week was to dance 10 minutes every hour on the hour from 9a - 4p. I averaged 50 to 60 minutes a day and as a result lost 3 pounds! ... Read more
100 Calories At A Time
Wednesday, December 02, 2015      7 comments

Dancing every hour on the hour is burning calories before my very eyes! My pedometer has tracked 135.4 calories gone in two hours. I added a two step ( Cotton Eye Joe) through out the house and a Disco move that would make John Travolta smile!... Read more
