Hi Everyone, I'm doing fine, not perfect, but still a passing grade. Giving myself about a 78% for yesterday. I have a lot going on at school. As of this morning I have 109 assignments to grade (no, I didn't count them; my online cou... Read more
Down but not out
Tuesday, January 26, 2010      8 comments

We had some bad news yesterday, nothing life-threatening just a business dealing that is taking up WAY more time and energy than it should. When I got the news of the latest round of delays and excuses the first thing I wanted to do was hav... Read more
Not a Fan of Mondays
Monday, January 25, 2010      5 comments

I always have a hard time transitioning from the relaxed atmosphere of the weekend to the "hurry-hurry-hurry" mindset of the workweek. I race from one activity to another and feel like I am being sucked down a whirlpool that I can't escape fro... Read more

Went to the fitness center and did an hour Cardio Power-Pump class (have I mentioned how much I hate that Nazi in spandex?), and 44 minutes divided between the recumbent bike and the elliptical. Have my meals planned -- TC wanted "comfort f... Read more
Goals & Rewards: My Personal Manifesto
Friday, January 22, 2010      4 comments

I've finished reading THE SPARK, and realized although I have my Beck cards, I have never written down my short-, medium-, or long-term goals. They are in my head, but as we ALL KNOW, WE NEED TO WRITE THINGS DOWN. So I've done quite a bit ... Read more

I'm doing well this week but am already eyeing the weekend with dread. In the past I've had soo little control on the weekends. I can undo 5 great days with 1 or 2 bad ones. This weekend I'm determined to use my positive affirmations to d... Read more
What 2 things have you done today to make you feel proud?
Wednesday, January 20, 2010      2 comments

I want to focus more on POSITIVES and less on NEGATIVES, ala the Spark book. I'm moving toward the light, not shrinking from the darkness. What I did that I'm proud of: 1. I walked/jogged 50 minutes on my treadmill -- NO HANDS! (that's a... Read more

Saturday, January 16, 2010      6 comments

Blogging yesterday morning about my DANGER spot was very helpful -- I did NOT stop for wine on the way home. Thank you, Geinah, for the suggestion to take another way home! (DUH, why haven't I thought of that?!) Anyway, being accountable ... Read more
DANGER,Will Robinson, DANGER!
Friday, January 15, 2010      8 comments

I'm sure nobody remembers that line from Lost in Space, but I can't get it out of my head so that's the title of this blog. I've done really well in January EXCEPT: on the two Fridays I've had my way with a bottle of wine. A big bottle.... Read more
Feeling It

I'm really enjoying the Spark book much more than I thought I would. I thought it would be a big ol' commercial for the website but it's very positive and upbeat, and it's working to renew my fight on flab. A new semester started yesterday... Read more

Reason #6 - Physician, Heal Thyself
Tuesday, January 12, 2010      5 comments
