Thursday, November 05, 2009      4 comments

Hello everyone, I feel like I have dug myself out of the avalanche of life events and can now get back to concentrating on *me*! Starting today it's just normal busy and not over-the-top busy. I know I've gained back some weight but I... Read more

I have no time to write this so it will be short. I have had to work late every day this week, and will today and tomorrow as well. Tonight is the faculty training I'm giving -- I've only planned it in myvhead but I think it will be OK. T... Read more

Now that Vandal has 'fessed up to gaining 5 pounds, I will step up to the plate and do the same. I did NOTHING last week while TC was gone. It started with the catfish dinner and deteriorated into an orgy from there. (Well, not LITERALLY,... Read more
Good news!

My DH, TC, is on his way home! I'm so excited about that. He left Michigan this afternoon, will be home sometime tomorrow. More good news -- we sold the house. While TC was busy with the plumber, realtor, heating guy, etc., a neighbor ca... Read more

I have not done well this week, something about not having anyone at home to "do" for has made me totally lazy. No cooking, no exercises, no planning! I have a TON of work to do this weekend. I will plan to get to the fitness center tomor... Read more

Fell off the wagon, that is! I had every intention of having a great day, until a coworker came in and said the local radio station had named me EMPLOYEE OF THE DAY! I don't even listen to that radio station, but apparently someone nom... Read more

1. I am more confident. 2. I don't think people are judging my weight first, then my words. 3. I feel more credible and authoritative. 4. I take more time with my appearance. 5. I am wearing skirts for the first time in MANY years. ... Read more

I have lost two pounds, down to 158. I'm feeling pretty good about it, but of course would like it to go faster! I printed off the "Instructors Guide" to the software I'm supposed to train faculty on? It's 1200 pages long! Yeah, this is ... Read more

I'm trying to one-up Vandal and his dramatic headlines! We got the call last night that the house in Jackson will revert back to us on Monday. So TC will be heading for Michigan on Tuesday at the crack O' dawn. We've been married 20 y... Read more

I went to the Power Pump class at the fitness center today...there was a different instructor. OMG! I felt like it was the first time I'd ever been there. It's amazing how a change of instructor can completely change/intensify the workout. I... Read more

Well, today it was **ME**!!! This was a hugely busy week due to midterm tests, grades, meetings, extra projects, etc. Every time I turned around there was a new email with something new that had to be done. Last night I made a list of... Read more

Thursday, October 15, 2009      2 comments

I haven't felt this motivated since this summer. Since school started back I've been lazy, whiney, and full of excuses as to why everything is unfair and hard. I've had some good starts and false starts, but apparently did enough right to ... Read more

I've got a busy day today, need to go in early and work late. BUT: my plan is in place! TC's dinner is in the crockpot (beef stew;, it doesn't bother me), fish is defrosting for me, lunch is packed. Even though I'm working late I've MA... Read more

I couldn't get the quote out of my mind: "Most barriers to your success are man-made. And most often, you're the man who made them." - Frank Tyge It stopped me dead! I knew it was true. I'm my own biggest problem. So I made a... Read more

I had a good diet day today but did not exercise. Ended up working late. Tomorrow & Wednesday will be late nights as well. I have to start going into work earlier on T/TH so I've got to give up the fitness center. But I figure I can us... Read more
