I have discovered the secret of my struggles. Want to know what it is? I have been dieting. Yup, I said it. Dieting. DIE with a T. I have been doing everything I "should" be doing and you know what? It sucks. I HATE brown rice, there ... Read more
Feeling overwhelmed

I just have too much going on in my life. Work has some issues and out of respect for company privacy I can't talk about it but it is very serious and everyone is on edge. I am not sleeping, not eating well, not working out. A whole lot of not d... Read more
Lots going on and confronting my mom
Sunday, June 26, 2011      25 comments

To say I am excited to have started wedding planning is an understatement. We had a long engagement by choice and to be setting a date and making it all official is really cool. It is funny because this is what I do professionally and it is sti... Read more

One year ago today I decided to stop making excuses and really change my life and I did. I gave up lying to myself and everyone around me and started on the path to becoming the person that I wanted to be. I never imagined it would be one of the... Read more
Family disappointment
Saturday, June 18, 2011      42 comments

I called my brother last night to vent about my mother's total lack of desire to have any involvement in my wedding beyond criticism and repeatedly questioning if this is what I want. She is one of those people who thinks the United States is th... Read more
Fear of Failure
Thursday, June 16, 2011      14 comments

I went out for dinner last night with my "Man of Honor" so someone would listen to me yammer on about my wedding (not just for that, he is my best friend too and I hadn't seen him in awhile) but since so few people seem to actually care about my... Read more
Nothing profound to say
Sunday, June 12, 2011      25 comments

I have been losing interest in the whole process. A bit by bit, day by day. Mostly I have been in denial that it is happening but it is. I am starting to think it is just part of the process. That at this stage this is the biggest obstacle becau... Read more
Getting out of my own way

A recent blog of one of amazingly insightful sparkbuddies MEZZOANGEL and the movie "Country Strong" made me do an enormous amount of thinking yesterday and today. Not that I don't do that every single day, my brain is constantly swirling full of... Read more
Where the heck have I been?
Thursday, June 02, 2011      38 comments

Yes, I have logged in everyday. Yes, I have been lurking about but not commenting because it sucks to do it on my phone. Where the heck have I been? Proving to myself and my bosses that I am the best damn thing that ever happened to them and you... Read more
The Meaning of life....
Wednesday, May 25, 2011      32 comments to live it. The universe has a sick sense of humor. Never did I think I would have a major life epiphany on the way home from the gym reading bumper stickers but it really doesn't get that more simple. How do you find motivation? Ho... Read more
Revelations from my first 5K
Sunday, May 15, 2011      42 comments

I realized during what I thought was my first 5K that it was actually my second. My first was when I was in my late 20's and I did it with a friend whose work sponsored it. I was so obese and so out of shape I could barely make it the first mile... Read more

Yesterday I spoke with the man who runs the non-profit that I thought would help me and I realized that it isn't the right direction for me. Pretty much they will only help me if I already have money and can start paying them for rental space of... Read more
I need structure
Tuesday, May 10, 2011      32 comments

One of the things I have learned about myself is that I hate keeping a schedule but I need to keep one. When I keep myself accountable and structured is when I am the most successful. I have always admired how NOTABOUTHEFACE plans her monthly wo... Read more

Tuesday, May 03, 2011      71 comments

A bit of history about me. I met my first husband when I was 16 and we got married when I was 23. We had reached the point of either get married or break up. I had been with him for so long that I truthfully didn't know a life without him and I ... Read more
