Friday, January 01, 2010      11 comments

So instead of "resolutions" I'm calling them "goals", and after some thought I decided on a plan for January, and perhaps for the year. My plan is to set a monthly goal, and a reward for achieving that goal, with mini rewards for weekly ach... Read more

Well, this is a no brainer, but I'm going to state the obvious anyway, maybe just to remind myself for the next time out. We went skiing for the first of the season last Sunday. It was snowing, cold, and the ski area said it was good for s... Read more

So the Karaoke party was yesterday. I love to sing. Some folks have complimented my voice, and I'm not saying they're wrong, but then again, I don't hit every note perfectly and I know it. I'm also a bit of a perfectionist. So Karaoke. Seem... Read more

Sunday, November 01, 2009      13 comments

I had a comment on my Spark page where someone said they were interested in my weight loss story, and I thought, why not? I suppose we all have those moments in life where self-realization sets in and we see how we look to others, I think... Read more
