Day 26 - "We shall overcome"
Saturday, September 04, 2010      2 comments

The weekend is here. Immediately a little melody comes to mind, a christian song, "We shall overcome...." ... Read more
Day 25 - "Turbocharged" and groovin'
Friday, September 03, 2010      2 comments

I love a day that starts like today. For me it is rare enough. Ever have one of those days when everything comes together with ease? When one event that is dependent on the next move happens as it should? When everything falls into place? I... Read more
Day 24 - Taking the "ho" out of hohum
Thursday, September 02, 2010      3 comments

Today when I woke up my mind was drawing a big old blank on what I would plan for this day. I hopped on to the community blogs, hoping somehow someone would inspire me to form a thought for the day's plans. No such luck. What to do? ... Read more
Day 23 - September! Got your game plan together?
Wednesday, September 01, 2010      1 comments

Hello, September! A new month of opportunities lays before us. “The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before.” (Steve Young) So, what are your next steps? Will... Read more
Day 22 - EOM...where did the drama go?
Tuesday, August 31, 2010      3 comments

End of Month. Feels dramatic, but I don't feel that way inside. It was always a big day and I looked forward to it. I used to plan lots of activities for it: weigh in, measure my body with a tape measure, record and review all the month's di... Read more
Day 21 - Welcome, M-F!
Monday, August 30, 2010      1 comments

Yippeee!!! I am so glad to welcome Monday. With the weekend now behind me, so too are the hardest eating days of the week! The M-F stretch always feels good to me, with its opportunities and special focus on being productive. DAY'S PLANS... Read more
Day 20 - How often do you use the weekend nutrient dense calorie exemption?
Sunday, August 29, 2010      4 comments

Yesterday's adventures led me to a garage sale where I acted on impulse and purchased an old bike. Somehow, I think that is equivalent to some sort of new cardio commitment. Yikes. I have to admit, I did enjoy last night's 45 minutes spin, we... Read more
Day 19 - Do you throw out leftover snacks from entertaining?
Saturday, August 28, 2010      9 comments

Last week I had a cookout for family. That meant having a certain amount of snacks around to serve. Those that I served, were fairly healthy. Homemade guacamole (killer batch), shrimp, low-fat pizza dip, reduced fat crackers, veggie tray with... Read more
DAY 18 - Great day negated by late snacking. Mad!
Friday, August 27, 2010      3 comments

A good night's sleep. Now that's a much better way to start a day. I am meeting a friend for coffee this morning. I'll have to be really focused if I want to get my cardio and strength in before I leave. I didn't exercise yesterday. Why is ... Read more
Day 17 - Ever start your day at midnight just so snack is on next day?
Thursday, August 26, 2010      4 comments

Ever start out a day at midnight? I did today. No, I don't work on second shift, which would make eating a meal at midnight reasonable. I exercised too late, which prevented me from feeling ready for my natural bed time. Seemed like the perf... Read more

Today, I've got to attack yesterday's open item: attack the closet and find a 2nd interview outfit. emoticon ... Read more
Day 15 - Look Good, Feel Good?
Tuesday, August 24, 2010      2 comments

Ever have one of those days that is just BLAH? Many say, "look good, feel good." It makes me think if that's enough to make a difference, really, on what's going on inside. It would seem more useful to dig deeper and maybe appreciate all the ... Read more
Day 14
Monday, August 23, 2010      4 comments

I have a job interview today that involves skill testing and the interview. I'm trying to keep my stress under check. Until mid-afternoon I will be focused on this process and will set goals for later this afternoon/early evening. Goals: ... Read more
Day 13 - Quiet, peaceful....
Sunday, August 22, 2010      2 comments

With vacation and the cookout behind me, I am enjoying the quiet serenity of today. The cookout was exhausting, but enjoyed by all. My back feels broken so I will acquiesce to its cry for mercy and just take it easy. No cardio. No weights. ... Read more
Day 12 -
Saturday, August 21, 2010      2 comments

Today, DH and I (mostly me) are hosting a cookout for DHs family, as his brother and wife are visiting from out of state. I am exhausted and sore from yesterday's cleaning preparations. This morning: cooking, grocery shopping, cooking, and th... Read more
